LO & SONS CATALINA DELUXE WEEKEND BAG

The hubs and I are off for a weekend getaway to celebrate our 3 YEAR ANNIVERSARY! How time flies when you are married and having fun ;)! We are headed for a short trip away and I thought it was the perfect time to test out my new weekend bag from Lo & Sons. Not only do I love the design and the gorgeous grey color of the bag, but the functionality of this bag is amazing! There are so many smart compartments to the bag and you can tell every functionality was thought through. The hubs and I travel a lot and I’ve been searching for a great carry-on to carry all of the random things I like to have with me on the plane. I got the the Catalina Deluxe in size Small so it wouldn’t overwhelm my frame. I love how the website shows the three sizes of the bags on three different heights to give you perspective of how the bag will look on you! My favorite part of the bag is the bottom compartment that you can access easily without opening up the whole bag. This is a great place for a pair of shoes, a sweater for the cold flight or a small makeup bag. Lo & Sons has a great video on what to pack in your weekend bag on their site so check it out HERE.

ASOS COLORFUL OFF THE SHOULDER DRESS

Last Spring (with much longer hair), I fell in love with this off the shoulder floral dress from ASOS. Well this year, they came out with a more colorful version in bright Spring colors and I just had to get it as I love the fit and style so much! I think this beautiful dress is a serious contender for my search for a wedding guest dress! It does run tight so I might not be able to eat as much ;).

On another note, looking back at last year’s post, I’m still debating whether to grow my hair out or keep it short! I also had more of side part with the longer hair. So what do y’all think, should I keep my hair short or grow it out?!

ASOS is having a SHOP MORE, SAVE MORE SALE where the more you spend, the more you save! Be sure to take advantage of this sale which ends on 3/29/2016 if you plan to buy this dress!

SCALLOP MINI SKIRT

My love for scallops and stripes this Spring continues! This blush scallop mini skirt is just the perfect shade of pink and the right length to make it easy-to-wear and pair with anything. Plus it matches my Chloe Mini Drew perfectly :). You’ll be seeing a lot more of this rosy pink color this year as it’s one of the Pantone colors of the year. I don’t mind – I find it an easy alternative and just as versatile as white or other neutrals.

STRIPED NAVY MIDI SKIRT

As you can tell, I’m loving stripes lately (all the time actually) as I shared this simple stripe sheath dress just last week. I love me a good midi skirt and Spring/Summer is the perfect time to add a pretty one in white and navy stripes. I love the fullness of this skirt from J.O.A.. I think I love scallops as much as stripes so I paired it with this versatile and easy-to-wear scallop top from my Morning Lavender Boutique.

I’d love to hear your favorite Spring Trends going on right now! Share in the comments section below and I’ll try to find beautiful pieces that match for upcoming posts!

POP OF COLOR

It’s to default to black and greys this time of the year but why not add some color to the cold weather?! I have an endless love for the color pink so having a pink coat just makes sense. And not just any pink coat but a double breasted, petite friendly one like this gorgeous coat from Banana Republic. I paired it with more pops of color like this amazing fuchsia satchel Henri Bendel and Plaid Blanket Scarf from Morning Lavender. It’s really nice that it’s finally chilly in California (and by chilly I mean 60’s) and I can wear my coats!

SLEEVELESS TRENCH

Greetings from Mexico! The hubs and I are still traveling for work but I’m excited to share some more looks with you this week! It’s still pretty warm here in SoCal so I’m still able to pull off sleeveless looks like this. If it were colder, I’d probably add a simple longsleeve tee like this one underneath and add some tights/leggings. I love this trench from Chicwish because it can be a dress or outerwear, especially since it hits lower on me in length! It has pockets, a great shape and belted fit so you can adjust it easily for your frame. I really think Fall is my favorite season! Now if only we had real Fall weather!

CAMEL & CULOTTES

I never thought I could pull off culottes until I found these petite friendly ones from White House Black Market, which are on SALE right now for only $20!!! They are very flattering and work so well with my small frame. Now I don’t have to be envious of taller girls with this look!!! However, because they do cut off at the ankles which can make me look even shorter than I already am, I wore an ivory camisole in the same color to create a longer illusion of the overall look. I also made sure to not wear shoes with ankle straps or anything that would make me look even shorter so these leopard pumps were a perfect fit. For some added color, I threw on my favorite new camel blazer and my beautiful new Chloe which my friend purchased for me in Paris (can we say VAT refund?! woohoo!). I always debated whether or not my YSL bag purchase in Japan should have been the white or blush color (I know, first world problems) but now I have this darling one in blush so I got the best of both worlds!  As you can see, I like to save on most clothing pieces but splurge on my handbags.  I mean why not enjoy yourself a little, when you work so hard?!

PEACH & NAVY

So lately I’ve been slightly obsessed with the color navy. I’ve been wanting a navy handbag and when I found this darling satchel with a gorgeous gold bow from Ted Baker, I just couldn’t resist! You know me and bows :). I also loved the scallop dress I wore in this blog post so much that I ordered the version with sleeves from Urban Outfitters. This one with sleeves is actually made of spandex and rayon and the sleeveless version is polyester so it’s of a thinner, more lightweight material. What do you guys think?! Do you like the version with or without sleeves?! I kind of love both lol.
