Wear of the Week: Vote!

Hi All, Happy Friday!

Thank you for checking in this week.  I had fun styling white pants for fall and loved seeing all your feedback.

Please take a moment to let me know which look this week was your favorite!Image

Have a great weekend!

Wear of the Week: Red Denim + Color Block

ImageA bold and unexpected way to sport our Wear of the Week is to pair it with another color.  It is two trends in one: color blocking and red denim.  I love how mustard yellow and red foil each other and are both complimentary yet contrasting.ImageTo add another dimension and some spunk, I paired it with a vegan leather vest and leopard wedge booties.ImageImageThis is also a great transitional outfit to fall.  The short sleeves and open toed shoes allow for for some air but the colors and trends reflect fall fashion.Image

How are you beating the heat but embracing fall styles?

Happy Labor Day!

ImageI hope you all are enjoying an extended weekend!  Whether it is by celebrating at the beach, with a backyard BBQ, or simply relaxing, I hope the last day of summer is enjoyable and filled with lots of laughs.

If you are working today, make sure to carve out some time soon to relax and reflect on this year’s summer memories.

I plan on enjoying today with some sunshine and maybe a margarita (or two).  See you back here tomorrow!

What I am Wearing: Navy Nautical Stripes


Coral Sweater {Tory Burch}, Dress {Theory}, Shoes {last seen here}, Michael Kors Watch

Over the weekend the hubs and I traveled from mountain life to coastal retreat.  Friday we left the cabin and made our way over to the quaint coastal town of Carmel, Ca for a friend’s wedding.  It was my first time to Carmel and I was blown away by the charming architecture, hydrangea lined streets, and homes that didn’t have number addresses, only names.  It was Utopia on water.

Weekend Recap: Mountain Life


If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I was up in the mountains last week for some R&R with my husband’s family.  I grew up near the coast and have always considered myself more of a beach gal, but thanks to my husband and their summer family traditions, I have been introduced to the beauty and tranquility that mountain life provides.  Here are the top reasons for my newfound mountain love.

Friday Favorites: Music

This song is on constant replay on my Spotify playlist and I think it is the perfect way to start this Friday morning.  The beat is super catchy and upbeat and who doesn’t love to wake up to a little JT?

Enjoy and have a great weekend everyone!

What I am Wearing: Arm Candy and Crochet


The wedding season is upon us!  This weekend the hubs and I have a wedding welcome party that calls for casual attire.  Since I try to avoid pants whenever it comes to any event wedding-related, I dove into my closet and decided to go for a playful and flirty yellow crochet skirt.  I have it paired with a grey t-shirt (from Target!  More on that obsession at a later post) to add a splash of coastal casual and am carrying a metallic clutch for a dash of glam.

What I am Wearing: Army Green and Tribal Prints



Over the weekend my godmother and I set out for a girls lunch and to enjoy Santa Barbara on a gorgeous 75-degree-not-a-cloud-in-the-sky summer day.  Whenever I want to stay casual and comfortable but add a little allure to my style step, I head for a maxi skirt or maxi dress.  They add just enough pick-me-up to an outfit so that you are prepared no matter what festivities the day brings.
