Pretty as a Picture

Pretty as a PictureHello, darlings!  Hope everyone had a marvelous Memorial Day weekend! I wore this little number on Saturday to kick off the weekend. I bought this skirt on clearance almost 2 years ago and I am just now wearing it! I don ‘t know what took me so long! I was drawn to the cream color instantly when I saw it hanging on the rack, and then I was taken by surprise to see that the print of the skirt was snakeskin. I instantly had to have it! It’s girly with a fun edge. One of the best things about this cream color skirt is you can pair it with any bright color blouse and it will look amazing! I wanted to go more simple with jewelry and chose earrings and bangles only – to keep focus on the outfit itself. And since I was already wearing snakeskin I thought I should add some leopard print too! Why not, right?  So these heels fit the bill! Lastly, I added a Steve Madden handbag and a pair of oversized sunnies to complete my look.

My outfit: Blouse: Forever 21; Skirt: Target (old – clearance); Shoes: Forever 21; Handbag: Steve Madden (old – gift); Bangles: Forever 21; Earrings: Wet Seal (clearance); Watch: vintage Bulova; Sunnies: Big Lots; Lipstick: Sephora Rouge Shine (in the shade Flashy); Eyeshadow: L’Oreal Infallible 24 HR( in the color Endless Sea); Nails: Wet n Wild Fast Dry (in the color Sagreena the Teenage Witch) and Nars shimmer (in the color Purple Rain).

Tough Love

IMG_2484Hi, my loves!  Hope everyone had a great weekend and an amazing Cinco de Mayo!  I, for one, will find any excuse to eat Mexican food. What, you say it’s your birthday? – let’s have Mexican food! What, you got a parking ticket? – let’s have Mexican food!  You see, it’s that easy for me to turn any situation into an excuse for Mexican food. Wait… how did this post turn into talking about food? Ummm…. because I likey food… a lot. HA!  Well, I will have a recipe on my page later this week for shrimp tacos, so check that out. Now, on to the real reason for this post… My amazing outfit!

I really love love love this look!  You probably noticed from my previous posts, I am very much a girly girl. Polka dots, pink, pearls, ect. I’m oozing girliness, but every girl has that tough side and we like to show it off once in awhile. And while this outfit has more of an edge, it still showcases the fact that I am very much a woman – a sexy and confident woman. I will rock what I want, how I want. Snakeskin print heels and a jean jacket? – Sure, why not. Wear a studded bracelet on one arm and bangles on another? – Why yes, I think I will.  Fashion is all about taking chances and risks. Some pay off and some don’t. Bottom line here – If you felt amazing wearing it then that’s all that matters. And I had fun wearing this outfit!

Today’s outfit: Jean jacket: thrifted; tee: Wet Seal; Jeans: old (Kohl’s –So brand); Shoes: old (Kohl’s Jennifer Lopez collection); Aviators: Forever21; Studded cuff bracelet: old (Kohl’s – Candies – similar style here); Bangle bracelets: Forever21; Flower ring: Forever21; Beaded hoop earrings: Forever21;  Purse: Nine West; Nails: High Maintenance by OPI

Color my world

Pink & BlueHappy Monday, darlings! Is the weekend over already? I mean really over? They go by way too quick! On Sunday I wore this brightly colored outfit.  I love mixing vibrant blues and pinks. My hubby even commented on how much he liked my outfit, and called it “fun.”  For my hubby to say that means we’ve found a winner!

I love the way you can dress this outfit up or down.  In Los Angeles it can be hot, hot, hot during the day and then it cools down in the evening.  I always have to have a cardigan or light jacket near when the evening comes calling. That’s why this outfit is perfect for LA weather! And I loved pairing this outfit with a floral tote bag. Great for throwing things in, and off you go!  Plus, I carry a smaller clutch in my tote filled with the essentials, so when the day turns to evening I just slip into my heels and jacket; grab my clutch out of my tote bag and I’m off to dinner! I get so excited over the endless possibilities of fashion, especially when little things can transition an outfit from day to evening without a lot of effort!
