Beach Blush

Hello lovelies and happy new week!

Have you though about replacing your beach cover up with an actual dress? I tend to do that almost 90% of the time as I like having an outfit that can carry me trough the day, from a morning/afternoon playing in the sand and the waves to an early dinner or drinks at my favorite food and cocktail spot.

Meet my latest partner in beach-going to restaurant-hopping crime – the SHEIN Lace Trim Eyelet Embroidered Dress. She is cute, fun and easy-going, breads in sunshine and exhales vacation vibes! She is made with 100% cotton material and her light and breezy fit and flare silhouette is sure to keep you cool while looking hot! 😉 The body of this beautiful A-line dress is made by an eyelet fabric, trimmed by gorgeous lace around the hem, sleeves and the V-neckline. This combo creates a floral-like, soft, monochrome effect which is eye-catching and ropes you in with gentleness and femininity. This dress comes in two colors–the blush I am wearing and a white–which is equally as pleasing and visually appealing.

Would you wear the Lace Trim Eyelet Embroidered Dress to the beach? Would love to hear what you think.

Love Always,

Floral Fall

Hello lovelies!

Can you believe it is already September? This year is flying by so fast and before we know it Fall will be here! Despite the recent California heat wave, I have started prepping my wardrobe for the change of seasons and have lined up items to introduce you to.

For this week’s transitional look, I have partnered with VIP.com to present to you this sweet, A-line, yellow floral dress. Doesn’t it ooze feminine charm?! It captured my attention with it’s gentle floral pattern combining pinks, whites and greens on a lovely mustard-hued background, which allows the pattern to speak in their soft tones. The cut of the dress along with the ruffled, bow-tie sleeves only add to the ladylike character of this dress.

So what is it that makes this dress so suitable for the next few month:

  • The mustard yellow color reminds me of the leaves changing color;
  • The dress is lined and perfect for cooler days;
  • It hits below the knee, which would make it suitable for early Fall days;
  • This floral beauty would partner well with a denim or leather jacket.

I decided to pair my new VIP.com find with lace up sandals, round glasses, black panama hat and black leather bag to give it some boho flavor as I was going to brunch in an edgy neighborhood where most people wear interesting statement pieces! I see this dress as a versatile piece as I would switch out the lace-up sandals with black kitten heels and wear it to the office.

Long Enough?!

Hello lovelies,

Hope your week has been going well. And “YES” I am posting for the second time this week! The solar eclipse must have gotten me, hehe!

PinkBlush Maxi, Lucky brand Bucket Bag, Calvin Klein Red Cateye Glasses, Lucky Brand Flats (5)

Not sure if you can tell by the photos, but this girl is pretty tall–5.9′, some days 5.10′ (no heel height added), so when it comes to finding a maxi I never know if it would be long enough or sort of that awkward, show-your-ankle length that drives me insane… Well, tall girls, I have found the answer: the Burgundy Print Draped Maxi Dress by the trendy online boutique, PinkBlush!

Main reasons for loving this dress:

  1. It is long enough for tall girls – size Small, which is what I am wearing, measures 58 inches from high point of shoulder to hem–wahoooo!
  2. It is very flattering on your figure as the dress is draped, so it is perfect for brunch when you want all that yummy food. 🙂 The sash can be ties tight for waist definition or kept looser for a more comfortable feel.
  3. The material feels very gentle against your skin.
  4. The colors and pattern – both are perfect for Fall, so this dress would be making it to the office with me this coming season!
  5. Bonus for NEW MAMAS: The V-neckline and crossover design makes this dress perfect for nursing.

Hello lovelies!

Can you believe we are approaching mid-August?!? I really don’t want summer to end… I know I live in sunny LA and should not be complaining about winter, however my love for summer goes back ever since I can remember myself!

Stay Warm in Style Emma Floral Midi Dress, Lucky Brand Lace Up Sandals, Summer Hat, Polaroid Round Glasses, Lucky Brand Studded Bugrundy Bag

I am actively avoiding looking at Fall collections and shopping for the season ahead just yet, so today I am sporting the funnest floral midi, by Stay Warm in Style, enjoying the rays of sunshine, flowers in bloom, birds’ songs, straw hats and sandals!

Those of you who have followed me for a while know that I love me a good sheath dress, however this fit and flair midi grabbed me with it’s vibrant floral print and mint base–it just oozes femininity and comfort all at the same time. I adore the length and “YES!” it has pockets!! And which girl does not like a dress with pockets?!? Once I had the dress in my hands I could also appreciate its material – it is so soft and gentle on your skin, which adds to the overall comfort I feel when wearing it.

The Beach is Calling…

Hello lovelies,

Hope your weekend was full of pleasant surprises and happy times with family and friends! We had a fun birthday party to go to and made it to the beach just in time as the temperatures here are upward of 90 degrees and the ocean breeze always makes things better. I did get a little sun-burnt, but I should know better than to ignore the sunscreen when it is calling my name, hehe.

What made out trip to the beach even more fun were my funky All For Color Birds of Paradise Camille Convertible Maxi and our stylish Anchor Duffel Bag from Sloane Ranger.

This strapless convertible maxi is so eye-catching. I love the unique print, combining vibrant colors and a pretty leafs and birds design to create one attention-grabbing fabric masterpiece. It is made from the most comfy, untra soft, cotton jersey material which makes it a pleasure to wear. Since we went to the beach I used this dress as my cover-up, but it is also perfect as a skirt as the top part folds over, giving you the flexibility to combine it with your favorite summer tee!

And this gorgeous canvas Anchor Duffler! Is there a better bag to go to the beach with?!? It’s dimensions allowed me to fill it up with everything we may need for a day under the sun – beach towels, an extra set of clothes, water, diapers and baby essentials (it even doubled as a diaper bag!), sunscreen, and some snacks. The webbed shoulder strap makes it easy to carry hands-free for those moments when you need to grab a little hand to lead. The strap is detachable and adjustable to fit your desires. This bag is also fully lined and sports a vegan-friendly leather trim! Check the range of dufflers by Sloan Ranger here.  If you like the anchor print, but want a different shape, check these out!

Summer Perfection

Hello ladies and gents!

Hope your three-days weekend was fantastic and marked the beginning of a fun and happy summer season!

I have to admit I am enjoying spring, however summer has always been my favorite season and in celebration of its arrival I am dedicating this post to the perfect outfit for a day under the sun.

What are the essentials a girl needs:

  • a pretty sun dress – somehow dresses have this ability to make a girl feel pretty and want to twirl all around town… This one has me feeling exactly that way. The top is an embroidered eyelet bib with delicate straps and lots of vintage charm. The midi-length gives it a classy yet fun feel and the cotton fabric, as subtle as the design, is so light that you can barely feel it – just the right kind of material and style for a hot day. One thing to note is that the top part of the dress could be a bit tight. I purchased a size Small and it fits me well, however it may be a bit snug.   Lucky Brand Summer Dress, Summer Floppy Hat, Lucky Brand Flats, Lucky Brand Saddle Bag, Arianna Sharfman PhotoLucky Brand Summer Dress, Summer Floppy Hat, Lucky Necklace and Earrings, Lucky Brand Saddle Bag, Calvin Klein SunglassesLucky Brand Summer Dress, Summer Floppy Hat, Lucky Brand Flats, Lucky Brand Saddle Bag, Calvin Klein Sunglasses, Raymond Weil Tango Watch
  • a floppy hat – hats add so much character to a look! This wide brim, floppy beach hat is sure to also provide your face with great protection from the sun. I love its fringed edges and seaside vacation vibe! Lucky Brand Summer Dress, Urban Outfitters Summer Floppy Beach Hat, Lucky Brand Earrings, Lucky Brand NecklaceLucky Brand Midi Dress, Summer Floppy Beach Hat, Lucky Brand Flats, Lucky Brand Saddle Bag, Calvin Klein Sunglasses, Arianna Sharfman Photo
  • sunglasses – if you are like me and the sun really bugs your eyes, consider adding your favorite sunglasses – those would add some charm and protect out sight as well! 🙂Arianna Sharfman Photo Lucky Brand Embroidered Dress, Lucky Brand Necklace, Lucky Brand Earrings, Calvin Klein SunglassesArianna Sharfman Photography Lucky Brand Summer Dress, Summer Floppy Hat, Lucky Brand Flats, Lucky Brand Saddle Bag, Calvin Klein Sunglasses (4)
  • a bag for your belongings – saddle bags have been a favorite of mine for the past couple of years – they are compact and can fit everything I need for a day. If you are heading to the beach pair this look with a cool beach tote (use code OOTDINSTYLE for 20% off and free shipping on orders over $50) and voila!Lucky Brand Summer Dress, Lucky Brand Ring, Lucky Brand Saddle BagLucky Brand Summer Dress, Summer Floppy Hat, Lucky Brand Flats, Lucky Brand Saddle Bag, Calvin Klein Sunglasses
  • some pretty jewellery to complete your look – this dress would look beautiful with both silver and gold jewels. I wanted my jewelry to be just as dainty as the dress, so I paired it up with a vintage rose necklace, gold earrings with some sparkle and a couple of gold rings (similar items here). I am very used to wearing a watch and owning a two-toned one has made it so easy to pair up with any other jewelry.Arianna Sharfman Photo, Lucky Brand Embroidered Dress, Lucky Brand Necklace, Lucky Brand Earrings (1)Arianna Sharfman Photo, Lucky Brand Embroidered Dress, Lucky Brand Necklace, Lucky Brand Earrings, CK Sunnies
  • a cute pair of shoes – which girl does not love heels?! This dress would look fab with some block-heel-lace-up sandals. For a day out and about, I love being able to roam around in comfort, so I opt out for flats during the day and leave heels for an evening/night out!

I want to THANK the sweet, talented, and professional Arianna Sharfman of Arianna Sharfman Photography for the beautiful images and the great conversation and ease she made me feel during our photoshoot. Check out her work – she is so incredibly friendly and a pleasure to work with!

Happy almost-summer, lovelies!!

Love always,

Sophisticated With an Edge

Hello lovelies,

Hope you all enjoyed this spring weekend! It was hot and very much like summer here in LA and I was very excited to be out and about in lighter clothing and my new Vivian bag from Oliver Bilou. I discovered OB online and immediately fell in love with their products–they offer five unique handbags each with a very distinct character and style. I have to admit, I had a hard time picking between the Vivian and the Taylor and still have my eye on the latter, as the former is now in my hands! 😉

Can we talk about Vivian’s unique charm? It’s light grey color, beautiful dome shape and that braided trim running along its front just called out my name–sophisticated with an EDGE (no pun intended)! But Vivian is not going to only be your “arm candy”–it is just as functional as it is beautiful! The bag looks compact, however it is pretty roomy and held my wallet, sunglasses, a water bottle, my phone (there is a special compartment for it), keys (a built-in key chain), and I could have loaded it even further–very impressive!

There also is a back zipped pocket you can access from the outside of the bag, and the main compartment has dual zips for easy use, making this bag perfect for travel or running around town.

The gold hardware adds to the classy bag and gives you a tone for your jewelry selection. Gold is incorporated in the handle bar, the metal feet, and key chain, the zippers, and even the inspirational quote one would discover once they open their Oliver Bilou bag.

Vivian is made from textured vegan leather with makes it’s light color easy to care for–just wipe it out with a wet nap and it is as good as new.

I was also very impressed by the packaging of this bag–it comes in a stylish black box, complete with a dust bag and all hardware carefully wrapped  to insure a pristine look–it would make any girl smile and be a great present delivered to someone you want to surprise!

Another perk is that Vivian looks perfectly with business attire as well as a casual weekend look. This bag is also FEEL GOOD as a portion of the proceeds from each handbag purchased goes towards enriching a child’s life.

Cotton Candy

Hello lovelies,

Hope you all enjoyed your weekend and celebrating either being a mommy or with your precious mama!

I have been wanting to wear with colorful dress for a while but the weather here in LA-LA-land has been so cold that I have not has a chance to until I decided to brave it out and just put it on with a denim blazer.

Generally, I shy away from bright colors and bringing more than one of those into a neutral color palette. The Amelia dress from Cuddy Studios changed my mind and made me jump against all the rules. I fell in love with it’s kites pattern and color play–it is so bright and cheerful! It actually inspired me to experiment with my accessories as well and here I am pairing this A-line, flirty pink trim dress with a pink peep toe shoe (similar here) and an amazing Vince Comuto green-blue bag (similar here)! All these vibrant colors remind me of cotton candy and put a smile on my face!

As I wore my Amelia dress this morning I also realized it would have been perfect for the time I was an expecting mommy-to-be. It is so light and airy and would not push on your tummy but rather provide enough space for a cute growing baby!

The LWD – Spring Perfection!

Hello lovelies,

Happy May! I am so excited to share this post with you!! This week I am introducing you to Hanna and Simone–both extremely pretty and a perfect “partner in crime” for this season as well as summer!

Cuddy Studios White Lace Hannah Dress, banana Republic Skinny Belt, Lucky Brand Emmy Flats, Aviators, Lucky Brand Saddle Bag (16)Bell Sleeved White Lace Dress, Aldo Heels, Banana Republic Skinny Belt, Botkier Handbag (1)

Those of you who have followed me for a while know that I am a total fan of lace. I also adore white, so a pretty white lace dress makes this woman very happy! Cuddy Studios made two such dresses that caught my eye, namely Hannah and Simone (I even love the names and had considered one of them when it was time to name my little princess)!

Hannah is a tank dress made out of a white floral lace fabric. It’s wide neckline and scooped back make it perfect for hot spring and even hotter summer days! The back has the cutest adjustable, delicate tie detail, which adds more visual interest and a fun twist. I also like the cut of this dress – you can add a belt to it for waist definition or just let it flow for a 60’s free spirit feel. I wore this dress with both heels and flats and enjoyed the more casual or a bit dressier option those added to the outfit.

Simone attracted me with its white holographic-feel, laser-cut diamond fabric and flattering A-line silhouette. It’s bell sleeves add a boho chic flavor to this classy dress! Just like the Hannah, Simone can be worn to a casual weekend brunch or paired with heels for a date night or a night out with the girls. I wore it with a skinny watermelon belt, watermelon heel and bag which complemented the dress and added a pop to the outfit.

Hello Jill!

Hello lovelies,

I hope your had an enjoyable break from work and a fun and exciting time with your friends and family this weekend! Ours sure felt like summer has come with temperatures in the 90s and clear, sunny skies!

This amazing weather enticed me to show off my new favorite article from Cuddy Studios – meet the Jill Romper in Trivet Print!

Cuddy Studios Jill Romper Banana Republic Bag Tommy Hilfiger Aviator Sunglasses ALDO Red Heels Summer 2017Cuddy Studios Jill Romper Geometric Print Banana Republic Bag Tommy Hilfiger Aviator Sunglasses

It is so vibrant and screams summer! I was stopped on the street several times and complemented on how great my outfit looks. The print is so unique and it offers a combination of colors that awaken the eye, give you a warm fuzzy feeling, and let you have an infinite number of choices when it comes to picking your accessories. I decided to pair my Jill romper with a white bag (similar here), watermelon heels (similar here), and blue-frame aviators (similar here). But I also debated picking a navy bag, pink peep-toes and white-frame glasses – you can play off any of the colors this pretty print incorporates.

There are four distinction features that I love about this romper:
1) Its bold and beautiful print and crisp, saturated colors – for all the reasons stated above;

4) It is lined on the bottom for extra comfort and no see-trough action;

5) Oh, and also, it is a single piece, so no scratch my head as to how to make an outfit!
