Timeless Beauty

Retro BabeHello, dolls! Hope everyone had a great weekend! And to all the lovely mommies, I hope your Mother’s Day was as beautiful as you! It was a scorcher here in LA over the weekend! During this photo shoot it was 98 degrees! My curls didn’t stand a chance when the photo shoot began. We were able to get a few decent shots though. This is an absolute classic style. I am very much a retro babe, and feel most beautiful when I wear vintage looks. I love watching classic movies and musicals, and I am always looking for ways to re-create the fashion. I am a huge Doris Day fan and her beauty and style have always been my inspiration. She is such a timeless beauty (hence the name of this week’s post). I have always been drawn to that era, and it’s fashion – It was so flirty, beautiful, and oozing femininity. Another huge inspiration for me and this classic look is my grandmother. Well into her 80’s she refused to be seen without her lipstick. “Ladies must always wear lipstick.”  She was very much a lady – I miss her everyday, but she passed on her sense of fashion to me, and the vintage Bulova watch you see me wear in almost all my fashion posts? – it was hers. Pearls, Chanel No. 5, lipstick, and a great purse – those wear her staples. And when I am wearing a classic look (like I was this weekend) and glance in the mirror – I realize how much I look like my grandma when she was young. So this week’s post in dedicated to my grandma Ginny.

My Sunday Style

IMG_1798Hello, darlings! Hope you are having a beautiful Sunday.  Just a quick post on today’s outfit.  I always reach for something yellow when I want to feel extra cheerful and sunshiny.  Yellow is a happy color. I paired a yellow polka dot cardigan with denim polka dot skinnies.  Usually you don’t want to wear the same pattern from head to toe, but this combo actually works well together! I added a vintage locket (with a modern spin), pearl stud earrings, and of course, my staple piece – my vintage bulova watch. I wore my blue canvas shoes (since I was going to be walking a lot) and not only are they super comfy, but they are super cute!  To complete my vintage style I wore an oversized pair of sunnies.

My Sunday style – Cardigan: Forever 21 (on clearance); white cami: Target (you can get it here); skinnies: Forever 21 (you can get it here); canvas shoes: Target (you can get it here); Locket: Out of the Blue (you can check out her jewelry here). watch: vintage bulova; pearl earrings: Kohl’s (old); sunnies: Big Lots (Seriously! You can get them here.  Cheap, but cute).
