Floral Blazer

My favorite way to keep things fun with my office attire is a loud printed blazer.  I keep everything else pretty neutral to balance it out.  This blazer from River Island is one of my all-time favorites.  Even though it's a crazy print, I find myself reaching for it all the time.  Because it has so many different colors built into it, it goes with so many outfits. 

I recently snagged this Rebecca Minkoff bag at the ShopBop sale and I am so happy with it.  I love her bags because they are affordable and awesome quality.  I bought one of the Mini MAC bags over 3 years ago and it seems to get better and better with age.  This particular style stood out to me because it has the look of a Chanel Boy Bag, without the insane price tag.

What about you guys?  Yay or nay on loud floral blazers?

I'm definitely looking towards adding more dresses to my summer wardrobe, and this dress stood out to me almost immediately.  Something about it looks very high-end, and I know it will look just as good as a beach cover up as it will for a Sunday brunch. 

My sandals just so happen to be from Forever21 as well and while I normally like to splurge more on shoes, I couldn't pass these up!  I'm not quite ready to invest in a pair of higher end espadrilles, so I love that these were under $20.

Hope you are all having a fantastic week so far!

J.Crew Sale Picks

Untitled #167

You guys know I love a good sale, and J.Crew is having an amazing one right now!  On top of the already on-sale items, you can get up to 50% off with code THEBEST.  I love J.Crew but I can't justify their prices sometimes.  I have been eyeing the orange pants and the statement earrings for awhile now and am so happy to see them on major sale.

I'm filling my closet with bright colors, prints, and fun jewelry for summer and spring so this sale is really hitting it out of the park for me. 

I hope you guys have an awesome Friday, and let me know if you snag anything from the sale!

Striped Drop Waist Dress

Dress: J.McLaughlin c/o  |  Heels: BCBGeneration  |  Bag: Tory Burch  |  Sunglasses: Karen Walker

It's definitely dress season here in Orange County and I couldn't be happier!  I'm feeling the need to refresh my summer dress collection and this J.McLaughlin number is a good start.  I love the retro feel of the scoop neck and drop waist silhouette, and it is perfect for many occasions.  

My new sunglasses came just in time to pair with this dress - don't they make for a perfect match?  I am huge fan of cat eye sunglasses and Karen Walker.  I've been wanting a pair of her sunglasses for awhile, but it seemed every one and their mother had the same two shapes and I didn't want to fall into the same hole.  I waited for awhile for the perfect shape to come out and they finally did so I took the plunge.  I'm so happy I did.  You can't really see it, but the top is lined with gold which gives them such a fun and edgy vibe. 

P.S. A big thank you to Dana from Something Good Blog for the feature yesterday.  I'm sharing what I wear to work and how I incorporate my personal style -- be sure to check it out!

Fringe & Tribal

Happy Monday!  I've been feeling extremely inspired in the boho department with all of the Coachella posting on social media this past weekend!  Unfortunately, J and I had to sell our tickets due to a conflict and I was so sad to miss it.  Luckily I was able to get a lot of things done this weekend, which is always a good feeling.

I am loving these shorts from Cheeky Peach Athens and find I've been wearing them as much as possible since I got them.  They have an elastic waist band so they are super comfortable, and the colors are so bright and happy.  I love them with this fringe top but I've also paired them with a black tank and chambray shirt for a more laid back look.

Spring Sandals

I am a shoe fanatic.  I love how your shoes can really transform an outfit.  It’s the difference between an outfit being casual or formal, fun or classic.  It’s important to me to have a variety of options in my rotation, thus I am constantly adding to the collection.

This spring I’ve really gravitated towards loud prints and bright colors in heels.  I love these heels from DSW because they have the loud print and texture in the snakeskin material, but the black and white will go with everything.

I’ve been a long time shopper at DSW because they offer amazing rewards opportunities, and have all the designers I love for a discounted price.  If you’ve followed this blog for a while, then you know I've even scored luxury brand shoes like Gucci and Giuseppe Zanotti there.

For this particular look I paired the heels with a printed top - I love mixing prints and since these heels are neutral in color, they are a perfect candidate.  These heels are great with pants but I love them even more with shorts or a skirt.  The heel height makes your legs look longer and dare I say more toned?  Might be wishful thinking on my part, but I do think they help!
What are you guys looking for in spring sandals this year? 

At DSW, we believe in the power of shoes, and in the power of shoe lovers.  With thousands of fresh styles for men, women, and children, we've got something for everyone, no matter who they are or how they dress.  Shoes say a lot about you. Say something great.
