Polka Dots and Glitter

IMG_8438Last up in this 3 part series? How to style this dress for 80 degrees and sunny!

IMG_8459California loves air conditioning inside, but we love to spend our time outdoors, so layers will always be critical.  I continue to be obsessed with this military jacket, and love its light feel but ability to warm you up! If you haven’t bought one yet… get on it!

IMG_8443I also love to embrace the dichotomy of super feminine and masculine simultaneously, and feel like glitter sandals with a military jacket does just the trick!

Accessories will always have a place in my heart… some of my staples are incorporated into this look – my GiGi cross body bag and my Chanel sunglasses.

Layer Dressing

IMG_8256

80 degrees one day then rain the next? This weather has been so confusing lately, and I’ve learned layers are key.

IMG_8229This week I am going to show a few ways to wear this Zara dress that I’ve been loving lately.  First weather scenario? 70 and cloudy.

Sweater/Necklace/Dress (as skirt)/Booties/PurseIMG_8223IMG_8206

I love the idea of wearing a dress as a skirt, but find a lot of styles are tough to do so with.  This drop-waisted skirt makes it easy to throw a sweater over and still have some shape.

IMG_8232 IMG_8254I also have been LOVING this giraffe necklace.  I have had it in my shopping cart for months and finally pulled the trigger… I highly recommend J.Crew Factory’s jewelry selection if you ever are looking for inexpensive finds. I also picked this one up and love it!

Booties are another great option for cooler weather… I had some back-up sandals packed in my purse in case the weather changed.  Never hurts to be prepared!

Stay tuned this week for some more ideas on how to style this versatile dress! IMG_8247

Spring Wish List

Fresh off the Spring Break boat I am on full Spring/Summer mode… here are some things on my wishlist/in my shopping cart right now:

Spring List

Candle/Book/NY Animal Print/Hat/Dress/Carafe/Giraffe Hook/Wallet/Sandals/Flatware

 

Candle: This is the sent of the Ritz Carlton Key Biscayne and it is AMAZING. Do yourself a favor, get this scent and immediately be transported to a sandy beach, palm trees and fruity cocktails (sans calories!).

Book: If anyone read White Girl Problems… Babe Walker’s new book is coming out at the end of April… pre-order now!

NY Animal Print: Art.com is having a MEGA sale, so I’m pulling the trigger on this print I’ve been eyeing for some time… if you are thinking of doing a little upgrade on your art collection… NOW is the time! (use code 25EASTER for 25% your order)

Hat: I know these are not new to the scene… but I finally am going to jump aboard the Panama Hat train.

Dress: With everyone posting Cochella outfit ideas, I feel the need to embrace my inner Bohemian with this look.

Carafe: I am the type of person who drinks more water if it is in a pretty glass/container/whatever… so I’m hoping this will help with some hydration in the warm seasons ahead.

Giraffe Hook: Are you kidding? Try to be mad hanging your scarf/purse/whatever on this thing.

Wallet: I’ve been thinking about a wallet upgrade and this one caught my eye.

Sandals: I’m all about Grecian sandals lately and wouldn’t these be perfect with the dress above?!

Flatware: I think I need to splurge on these for some Spring entertaining (Easter brunch anyone!?).

Whats on your Spring Wish List?!

Don’t forget…
