What To Wear To A Wedding That's Not A Dress

Tote c/o Lord & Taylor | Romper  C/MEO | Shoes (older c/o Koolaburra )

My fridge is covered with beautiful 'save the dates' and wedding invitations for this summer (Congrats Brett & Kristen, Jessica & Noel, Vanessa & Jeremy!). My mind is buzzing of what to wear but wedding dress codes come with a lot of stipulations — not too short, not too flashy, and please, please don't wear white (eggshell or cream!).  I want to look my best but I know I don't want to be that girl. You know, the one who showed up looking like a two-dollar hooker or worse, obviously trying to upstage the bride.

Espadrille Flatforms

I don't know if you can tell but it was such a windy day when I was shooting this. It might look like a pose, but I was struggling to look cute and keep my adorable Brixton hat from flying away. Oh the struggles of being a fashion blogger ;)

Ways To Graze

Between blogging, graphic/website designs, and running a full-time business, I am always on-the-go. It leaves me little to no time to spare. There are many afternoons when I don't have time to eat but that is not good news. I am one of those people that gets HANGRY when I don't get food in my system (my boyfriend can attest to that). I always have a hard time finding the perfect healthy, guilt-free snack. I mean, I'd love indulge in a big ol' bag of potato chips just as much as the next person, but that never ends well. I try to live a healthy lifestyle by exercising and eating multiple smaller portioned meals throughout the day.  The idea is that if you eat small portions every few hours, you will keep your hunger under control, metabolism elevated and energy levels high. That's why I'm so excited to have found Graze.

Festival Vibin'

Super delayed on posting this but life has been craaaazay. In a good way! Without further ado, let's talk about this look. I accidentally ordered a large in this lace-up open shoulder top which is fine because I usually like everything oversized anyways for a more flowy look. But because of the low cut details, boobies were like 'HELLO, WE CAME TO PLAY." Luckily I had ordered this cute caged bikini top so I wore it under the top. Lots of details here, but that's what festival season is all about.... lace-ups, lace downs (is that even a thing?), gladiator, florals, layers upon layers. Be free, Stay Wild!

Windy Days & Chic Vibes

Happy April ya'l! Despite the much-anticipated springtime, the weather is still quite temperamental, bringing warmth during midday and chilly temperatures by the time we reach our evening commute. I don't know about you, but I'll be wearing faux fur coats out at night, to work, and even on lazy weekends. You can't stop me, but you can follow my lead. This ombre fur coat from Choies is so soft and chic. It's perfect for Spring because it's not super heavy. Just be sure you pair with something casual and chic so you don't end up looking like a pimp. I paired it with a pair of distressed jeans and these killer Pour La Victoire woven leather platform heels.

Coachella: Forever 21

Hello friends! Hope you had a good weekend celebrating Easter! I can't believe I am saying this but it's almost my favorite season of the year. Yes, I am talking about the almighty festival season! I am getting the festivities started in my own back yard with my friends at Forever 21.

Transitional Spring Days

The transitional time between seasons can be annoying when deciding what to wear in the morning. I am finally free of the winter freeze, but no where near sandal and shorts weather in the Pacific Northwest. That's where a good transitional coat come in handy. I love this cocoon coat in a perfect light grey color for spring. It's the perfect topper for any of my finest spring outfits. It's not only important to have a perfect transitional spring coat but having a bag that can be dressed up or down is also of upmost sartorial importance. Although it’s on the smaller end, this classic and timeless bag is still very spacious and the zippers allow expansion. It comes in 6 different colors, I got Quartzite. Love being able to wear it as a crossbody or a tote, making it my favorite spring structured handbag.

Spring Denim Vibes

From cropped and flared, mini skirts or jumpsuits, to embroidered or fringed, there's no shortage of options in spring denim. But with a hint of the Bohemian about it, this off-the-shoulder denim top is one of my favorite for Spring. I love the flowing silhouette and raw hem for an effortless and feminine look – an ideal companion for my favorite One Teaspoon distressed skinny jeans.
