I spend this past weekend in New York and am still trying to catch my breath! It was a crazy trip filled with lots of fashion, great food and great wine. I filmed the entire trip so stay tuned for a peek into what my weekend looked like. Today’s post is all about the outfit I wore to the Alyssa Collura show. I wanted to wear something a bit bohemian to reflect the Alyssa Collura’s girly and feminine designs. I chose this dress from Nordstrom which happens to be in my favorite color. I love that the shade completely changes depending on the light. Sometimes it looks teal, while other times it comes off navy. I paired it with chunky heeled booties by Jeffery Campbell. Can you even get over how awesome these shoes are? The second I saw them it was love. They have a worn in, vintage look which gives a very relaxed feel. I like finding pieces that can be used for multiply occasions. When it starts to cool down I will pair this dress with tights and these shoes with jeans. Get more bank for you buck! I hope you all are having a great week and thanks so much for stopping by!
Can you believe it is almost September? What the heck? That just seems crazy to me. I swear, I always feel like summer will last forever and then…bam…it’s over. So even though it is still hot (yes even in Seattle-I think we brought the heat with us), I felt like I should start thinking about fall fashion. I am getting a tad over the ‘cochella’ look, which kind of went on the entire summer. But hey, I am all about it don’t get me wrong. So in honor of fall, I put together an outfit that is much more fall-appropriate but isn’t full-on chunky sweater and boots. Wearing pants was a big deal for me! Haha…but seriously. Adding in some heels dresses up this simple look and wearing a cross-body bag keeps the effortless summer vibe. And how cute is this one?? I hope you all enjoyed this look and have a great week!
Happy Monday everyone! I have looking forward to using this dress in a post ever since I received it in the mail. I wore it to my cousins wedding about a month ago and it was perfect. The great thing about prints, is you really don’t need to add many accessories. I paired some nude heels and a colbalt blue bag that ties in perfectly with the colors in the dress. This bag, by the way, is so beautiful in person. It is so well made and can be easily dressed up or down. However, the thing I love most about this bag, is what it represents. It is by Mofe, which is an amazing company that is all about today’s modern feminism. Their logo parallels the infinity symbol to embody the notion of no boundaries or limitations, and acts as a constant reminder that women can achieve anything they set their mind to. How awesome is that!? I hope you all have a wonderful week and remember to always follow your dreams no matter how big or small they may be.
Have you guys been into Forever 21 lately? Okay, well you need to. I was there for way too long the other day and scored these shorts and top for a great price…and a few other things! I love the way this outfit came out. It is so comfortable but still looks completely pulled together at the same time. If you watched my last favorites video, here are the sunglasses and purse that I had mentioned…and yes I still LOVE them.
Have a great day today and thanks so much for stopping by my blog!

Last Thursday I attended an event at the Trina Turk boutique in West Hollywood hosted by Kelly, of the blog Kelly Golightly. The store was absolutely beautiful. Someone working there told me the goal of the design was to feel like you are shopping through champagne. How beyond cool is that? I really need those hanging bubbles in my future house! All of the new spring clothes were gorgeous. The bright printed pieces made me want to be poolside in Palm Springs! We got there sort of early so we were able to shop aound without any crowds. I got a gorgeous name tag cuff which will definitely be in an upcoming outfit post. Huge thank you to everyone who made this event possible!
