Happy Friday everyone!
Today's look is one where comfort meets glamour. I paired a mint colored knit sweater with a blue jersey pencil skirt. I initially wanted to pair this sweater with white denim, but I figured I would challenge myself to dress it up a bit. I stuck with blue on blue adding in touches of gold and nude accessories.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

The weather near the coast can be really finicky. By 6pm in Manhattan Beach it tends to get really chilly, so having a layer to add to your daytime maxi is a must. I paired this pretty green, faux leather jacket (also seen here) with my black maxi dress for a chic yet simple dinner look. I added cap toe pumps, a structured bag, and a few silver accessories to finish off the outfit.
I hope you are having a great week!

For today's look I stuck with light pastels pairing a pretty peach blazer with a white v-neck, colorful shorts, and pointed toe wedges. Adding the blazer to this otherwise casual outfit really dressed it up and made things just a bit more polished. These shorts are so cute and comfy. They scream summer uniform.
Happy Wednesday! Thanks for stopping by!

Maybe I was supposed to be born in the fifties, because the mere sight of a full skirt makes me weak in the knees. I bought this (dress worn as) skirt in December because it screamed holiday party dress, and to honest, I figured it would really only serve that purpose. But that's okay every year around the holiday's I could pull it out, twirl at a few parties, and it would totally be worth the money. Until, I decided that it could be worn as a skirt. And voila! I'm able to maximize my wardrobe and decrease the cost per wear. How did I do it? This trick works best for strapless dresses, but you fold the top part under and zip up the dress as much as it will go. Sometimes you need to add a safety pin to ensure that the zipper won't roll down. It's easy to do and stays put all day.
On another note, I am so excited to have reached 2000 "likes" on Facebook. Your support means so much to me and I truly appreciate it.

Hi everyone, I hope you enjoyed a great weekend!
Today I layered a contrasting collared shirt underneath this pretty grey dress to give it more of a casual look. Remember when I mentioned re-purposing your husband/boyfriends old shirts? That's what I did here, and it's one of my favorite tricks because it adds a really nice over-sized collar look that you just can't achieve with a shirt in your own size. I paired it with sparkly studs, a bow bracelet (that I thrifted in Vermont), and a lovely heart shaped bag. A few pretty sparkles always make for a great Monday!
Note to self: Do take off that ugly black hair tie when snapping outfit pictures. The perks of being your own photographer. C'est la vie.

Sometimes it's okay to wear something just because it makes you happy. Like this pretty pleated skirt for instance. I found it at one of my favorite vintage shops and I've been in love with it ever since. I'm partial to things that I can twirl in, and I could certainly twirl around in this little beauty all day long. I stuck with black on black pairing my skirt with a lucite clutch, a printed scarf, and pretty gold accessories I hope you have a great Friday and a lovely weekend!

I'm really loving the stripe trend that I've been seeing all over the place lately. It can look a bit like a referee uniform if not done correctly, so it's importat to add feminine touches to this bold trend. I paired my stripes with a floral crop top, high-waisted white pants, a pearl bibb necklace and strappy white sandals. I decided to add my striped bag just for fun and because I loved the way it looked against the blazer and pants.
I'm currently on the hunt for the perfect black and white striped, long line blazer. I was so inspired by this photo.
Thanks so much for reading! I hope you're having a great week so far!

I just wanted to share a few more photos from my trip to New England. Our last stop was Lake Champlain and I really enjoyed all of the rural scenery and the sweeping views of the lake. It was the perfect place to unwind after a busy couple of days.
I hope you enjoy the photos, thanks so much for stopping by!
