Pink & Gold

One of my favorite color combinations are gold and pink, or anything with pink. You may of noticed that I have many skirts in different shades of pink. Pink is my favorite color and I love the feminine and playful vibe it emits. My other half and I try to make a point to celebrate our monthly anniversary, and I wore this over the weekend when we dined at Chez TJ, a yummy french restaurant in Mountain View. The most interesting and delicious dish we had was a tempura fried egg yoke with smoked salmon. The yoke is fried to perfection, was runny, and went so well with the smoked salmon.

I really love the fullness of this skirt, the only downfall is that it might be too thick. When I sit down and stand up, the pleats pop out the wrong way and looks a bit odd, but it is easy to pop them back into place. I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend!

Red Blooming Necklace and Leopard Wedges

How stunning is this red rose statement necklace? The design is inspired by J.Crew and costs a fraction of the price at Benevolent Jewels. It definitely takes my blue blue shift dress up a notch and I love the blue and red combo. 

I have a 4 year old German Shepherd named Mochi and have been a dog lover my entire life. When I found out the Benevolent Jewels is currently representing Barrio Dogs, an organization that aims to raise awareness of responsible animal care and preventing crime against animals in Texas, I was so honored to be able to help them spread the word.

I also wanted to let everyone know that my Albion giveaway begins Friday! So check back then for my first fitness pairing and a giveaway! :)

Denim Jacket and White Jeans

Hi everyone! I hope you had a nice and eventful weekend. :) I spent it up in SF and did a little shopping at Nordstrom for their Anniversary sale. This pairing was an outfit that I wore on Saturday when we ran errands and attended a friends birthday celebration. I really like this casual chic look because it is very laid back with the loose tee, but chic with my new clear sided heels I got from DailyLook. On the description of the heels it states that these heels run 1/2 small, I totally missed that when I ordered them, but I am happy to report that they fit nicely and frankly, I would say that they run true to size. 

I wanted to say a big thank you to Taudrey for these stunning personalized necklaces! I truly adore them and love how they layer nicely together. Taudrey is a Miami based jewelry brand and they specialize in handmade personalized items. They recently celebrated their 4 year anniversary (congrats!!) and have so many stunning items.

Chambray and White Trumpet Skirt

Nordstrom is having their Anniversary sale right now and I have been doing window shopping online, or browser shopping. :P I've been eyeing this Peplum Trench Coat and this super cute Novelty Sweater (oatmeal color with the cute deer!).

I really like this JJ Winters crossbody, it is tiny, but has sufficient space for my daily necessities; phone, lip balm, and credit cards. Perfect for an evening out with friends or when your doing something that does not require you to carry a lot of stuff. I got the crossbody from Socialista, a e-boutique based out of fun flirty Miami. I am so lucky to be given the opportunity to work with their wonderful founder, Mylanie Medina. She is so talented and created this shopping online destination to inspire women with a world of fashion, beauty, decor, and so much more. She is offering you 20% off any purchase on Socialista with promo code "CONNNIE20". Happy shopping. :D

Leather Jacket & Floral Dress

I've been saving this dress for a dinner date with the other half and paired it with my trusty leather jacket to keep me warm. We don't live in the same city or see each other daily, so whenever we are together I try to make a point to wear something special. I love prints on clothing and especially adore the colors on this dress. I paired it with mint, turquoise, and gold accessories to keep the look streamlined. 

Also, I have partnered with Albion, a fashionable fitness brand for a giveaway next week. So for all of us who are trying to stay healthy and get in shape, look out for the giveaway because they have cute workout clothes. ;)

Relaxed in Pink & Royal Blue Skinnies

I had a buffet packed weekend in Las Vegas and it was so delicious! In my opinion, the best buffet is Bacchanal Buffet at the Caesars Palace. We went to dinner and lunch over the weekend, and here is a trick to skipping the loooooonnng lines; you can pay an extra $15 per person and go straight in. For us it was worth it because we wanted to explore around and the wait was over 2 hours! At night, we went clubbing at Marquee and Tryst, I liked Marquee over Tryst and would recommend going to XS instead of Tryst. We only went to Tryst because Lil Jon was the guest celebrity; I thought he was very entertaining and funny. Our last night at Tryst unfortunately got cut short because someone got into my JJ Winters crossbody and stole my phone while we were dancing to Lil Jon. :'( Not cool, I was so upset the rest of the night and phoneless now. 

On a brighter note, this pretty Alex Tote is the newest addition to my handbag collection. The leather is so soft and I really like the slouchy look with the zipper detail. At first glance online, I thought this bag was white, but was pleasantly surprised when I opened the box and saw that it was a pale baby blue color. Linea Pelle's new Fall belts just got posted today, so check them out (HERE) because they have super cute new styles. :)
