Pink Floral Summer Dress and Brown Details


Happy Saturday everyone! I saw Monsters University the other night and loved the beginning screens. They showed Mike Wazowski when he was a kid with braces. He was so cute! I can't wait for Despicable Me 2 to come out this upcoming weekend. Have you seen the commercial for the movie? There is a cute screen with Agnes talking to Gru about his bald head and chicks popping out of it. Super adorable, here is the link to the video on YouTube.

Ivory Flower Petal Skirt


This skirt has officially become one of my favorite pieces in my closet. I love the feminine layers of the light fabric and how they flutters with each step. I paired this ivory skirt with pale blue and pink colors to keep the entire look soft and angelic. I wore this pairing to a brunch that my other half and I had to celebrate our anniversary, but it is perfect for any special occasion. 

I would like to share a recent amazing product discovery. :) I have found the holy grail of body moisturizers! I hate it when body lotion leaves a greasy oily feeling after application, so if you're like me, you'll fall head over heels in love for The Righteous Body Butter. It is truly AMAZING, super moisturizing, and smells so nice too! :)

Wrap Skirt With a Pop of Red


Hello everyone! I can't believe it is Sunday already, this weekend flew by so quickly! Today is the Alice Summerthing concert and I'm so excited to see Ed Sheeran, I really like his Little Bird and Kiss Me song. Do look it up and listen to them, they are amazing songs!! 

This pairing is a simple chic look with a pop of red from my clutch and heels. This look is perfect for grabbing lunch, visiting friends, and shopping. I love the detail of wrap skirt and how it drapes down to one side, but the best part is that it is on sale and has pockets! :D

Pink Tweed & Cuffed Denim Shorts


TGIF everyone!! I hope you have a fun and eventful weekend planned. If you are going to be in the Bay Area, there is a free outdoor concert at Golden Gate Park this Sunday, June 20th called the Alice's Summerthing. Ed Sherren, Sara Bareilles, and more are performing. My friends and I are going so say, "Hi" if we cross paths. :)

So I've been doing the Insanity workout for a few months now and have to say that it is an amazing workout! It is challenging, but is a great alternative to going to the gym and especially rewarding when you start to notice results. I recently started to notice results on my body and I'm really excited about that! The best part is that each workout is only about an hour long and I personally prefer doing an Insanity workout over going to the gym because I don't have to waste time driving to and back from the gym. If you are looking for a quick butt kicking insane workout, I recommend it! :D

Casual Chic in Taupe & Black


The weather can be so unpredictable in San Francisco. It was so cloudy and chilly today that I threw a comfortable baggy cardigan over black skinny jeans and paired it with a pair of wedges for a comfortable casual chic look. This look is perfect for running errands, going out for a cup of hot coco, or catching a movie. 

I went to Sephora last night and their OPI nail polishes are on sale! They said that they are discontinuing the OPI collection so all OPI branded items are 50% off. I bought a bunch of nail polishes for only $4.50 each! Such a steal normally OPI nail polishes go for $9-$9.50, I can't wait to use them, and hope you guys are able to get some colors you like! (I got Read My Palm, Mermaid To Order, It's Wine O'Clock, Casanova Is So Into Me, And a Cherry on Top, IM Beauty, and Havana Dream)

Office Look With Polka Dots



I wore this look for my second photo shoot with Ryan. Our mission of these photos were to achieve a fast-paced downtown work look, which I think we accomplished very nicely. This polished blazer sophisticated the look making it perfect for a day at work.
