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.

PINK + GREY

I love combining pretty colors – such as this love combination of pink + grey. These pretty hues add a feminine flair to what is considered a casual look. I am in love with my new roll up chinos from Banana Republic which are comfy and flattering at the same time. I am also wearing my new crossbody tote bag from Madewell which is the perfect size for me! I love how you can wear it three ways: crossbody, on one side, or as a satchel. It holds everything I need without overwhelming my petite frame.

WIDE LEG PANTS

I seriously have spent most of last year searching for the perfect wide leg black pant! I wanted them to be high-waisted and the pant leg to be wide but not too wide where my small frame looks like I am swimming in them! And then recently I found the perfect pair from Ann Taylor.  I got these pants in size 00 Petite and they fit me perfectly and they are currently 60% off! I love the silhouette of the pants and with a pair of black heels or booties – you can amazingly look way taller. I also paired the pants with a lovely blouse also from Ann Taylor (and 40% off) and my classic camel coat from Morning Lavender. I love this head-to-toe chic workday look! It’s time to get cranking in 2015!

NYE INSPIRATION – SEQUIN TULLE DRESS

Here’s another inspiration look I put together for New Year’s Eve. As much as I love being glamorous, sometimes I want to just look cute and comfortable at the same time! This outfit combines some girlie glamour with the sequins and tulle with some added edge of the leather jacket and comforts of tights and wedged booties. It’s the perfect NYE look if you want to keep a bit warmer, be a bit more comfortable and last all night dancing and ringing in 2015 :).

SHIFTY

I’m sorry for the lack of posts lately! It’s been a crazy few weeks with work but I promise I have a lot of posts coming up! I love wearing this shift dress from Liberty Sage because it is so chic and comfortable at the same time! Plus it is a beautiful shade of gray! I also love dressing up simple pieces like this dress by adding sparking jewelry, fun shoes and a larger handbag.

Have a great weekend everyone!

PINK AND FLARE

So by now you may have guessed that I love the color pink and also wear mostly dresses/skirts. I’ve been wearing a lot of fit and flare dresses lately because they are just so much fun and flattering. The simple one from Lulu’s is super comfortable and has the prettiest shade of pink.

On another note, I just wanted to thank everyone for the support my new boutique! It launched a month ago and already I’m getting so much wonderful feedback! I am blessed to do so many things I love!

LIKE A LADY

Happy Tuesday y’all! I have been trying to make a conscious effort to post on Mondays but it hasn’t been working so well lol. We got back from Texas on Saturday and I feel like a need a vacation from my vacation. But as a wedding photographer, this is always my busiest month of the year so there is no such thing as rest! Anyhoo, I wanted to share this outfit because I am wearing my favorite new shoes and new handbag! These pieces are the perfect compliments to my already girly wardrobe. The shoes from Joe’s are especially comfortable and can be paired with almost anything! The Kate Spade handbag was more of a fun buy – I usually don’t buy purses with prints but this one was too cute to resist! I thought I deserve a lil’ fun for all the hard work this month ;).

LADY ANN

There is seriously something so feminine and flattering about Ann Taylor dresses. The shape of this dress is especially flattering and I love the mix of camel and black. It’s a great go-to dress for wanting to look polished and sophisticated without breaking the bank. And the best part is that is currently 30% OFF on the WEBSITE!
