Coachella Inspired Look 2018

Like I was saying in my last post, Spring is just around the corner and with it comes Coachella!! That means enjoying the desert, listening to the best music and of course wearing fun outfits so I figured it was time to start posting my Inspo Looks for festival season. Here we go…

My first Coachella inspired look of the year is with Amuse Society. One of my favorite brands because of their bohemian & free spirit style. And that’s exactly the vibes I got from this two piece I wore on this post.

I PUT TOGETHER THIS LOOK FOR ALL MY FESTIVAL LOVERS AT HEART!!


I think the high waisted pants that tie-up in the front, combined with the off shoulder crop top make a great choice for Coachella. Why?? Because it’s perfectly comfy to be wearing ALL day long, the fabric is extremely light so it won’t betray you under the desert heat and the striped print add just the right amount of edge to the overall look. Simple as that!

That said, no look is complete without accessories. You have to make it our own right?? Starting with a hat to be protected from the sun and because let’s face it, it makes the outfit look more interesting <3 Mine is from Hat Attack , they have a beautiful collection but this one I really love!!

Next I styled with my latest loves… my new sunnies from EyeBuy Direct . I love the silver color of the lenses and the metal frame is beautiful and goes perfect with any look. I also layered 3 necklaces and my stacked up on my favorite earrings to finish the look.

Last but not least a crossbody is always my go to for these type of events, I chose a camel tone in suede fabric, super light bag so I barely feel the weight. But most important of all wear comfortable shoes!!! NO MATTER WHAT you will be sorry if you don’t so trust me on this one. I chose my laced-up, low wedge sandals which are just about the comfiest shoe aside from a sneaker.

And that completes the first COACHELLA Inspo Look! I will be posting a variety of Festival Ready Outfits in the next coming weeks, so follow along my Insta-Stories to keep up with the latest. Thanks for stopping by…

My i.am + BUTTONS Experience

A couple of months ago I got the chance to meet up with will.i.am ‘s team and see all the amazing things his tech company  i.am + is working on, including their latest launch the wireless earphones BUTTONS. And they are amazing! Right away I loved the design and got excited to work together to introduce you guys my new favorite tech + fashion accessory all in one!

As a blogger and a woman who loves fashion, I always make sure my style is reflected in everything I wear —I’m saying truly down to the smallest detail! So it makes sense that someone would come up with earbuds that actually look good with your outfit right?? Well here comes BUTTONS to save the day…

That said, I also spend a lot of time on my phone so even thought I love listening to my favorite songs, it’s not just about the music. I mean a girl has to work right?? And that’s why I truly love these. I can take calls on them too, which comes in handy when I’m running around all day, from shoot to shoot and I have scheduled call meetings in between —to which I never get used to lol (that’s just my personality) but this definitely helps the process go by smoother. Plus, the sound is crisp clear! So it’s a win-win.

All in all I can’t help but love my BUTTONS. And I had the best time shooting with the team. We met up at some of my favorite places in LA, we shot a quick video, took some fun photos and they were all incredibly nice and easy to work with! Which I always appreciate, it made the experience even better. ***Also, I had posted the video we did, but I had some issues with it loading on this page, so I will post it again on a separate one… stay tuned! But I hope you guys enjoy it as much as I did and please let me know what you think!

As always thanks so much for reading!

Disclaimer: I did not buy these, they were gifted to me by the brand. But this as always is my honest opinion <3  Photos and video by: i.am.+

 

Restyle Your Wardrobe

                I can’t wait to show you a few new projects I’ve worked for this month. I’ve had the luck to work with very talented people and am planning a few special posts to share them!

Now, for this blog post I wanted to restyle a white midi pantsuit I’ve worn before. Its easy to believe you can’t repeat an outfit once you’ve worn it BUT Im here to tell you that is so untrue! I added a cream & gold jacket, crocodile printed heels, accessorised with a different bag and I have a new look! By adding different accessories you can refresh a look that you’ve worn before and make it brand new again. Let me know what you think…

Love your Celfie

              Ok I have a confession… Im a little obsessed with Sincerely Jules Collection! A few months ago I attended her PopUp Shop in LA and of course I had to get her Celfie Tee😉 There was just something about this simple & chic style that I loved. Its the perfect item to have in your closet, its easy to style and its great for those busy days where all you want to wear is something comfortable but cute.

I mean don’t get me wrong, Im always excited for any excuse to dress up and wear heels.. it makes me feel feminine and confident;) But I do have my days were I love a more casual look and thats okay too;) I feel like these days its easy to get pushed into one style but just because it works for a few doesn’t mean its right for everyone. So find your style, what works for you, what makes you feel beautiful and go wear it! Its all about being you right? Got to love your celfie <3

Dressing up & dressing down

            We’ve all been there, that moment when you wish you had a second outfit in the back of your car for impromptu plans, but have nothing! You panic.. or at least I know I have;) The truth is you never know how your day is going to go, you leave the house in the morning with a schedule in mind, but something comes up and you wish you had dressed for it. That is why I love versatile outfits like this one! You can either dress it up or dress it down when needed and you’re good to go. Honestly its all about the accessories. If I had worn this outfit with cute sandals, a tote bag and my hair up in a pony tail it would have been perfect for a busy day in SoCal;) but just by adding heels, a chunky necklace and retouching my makeup, I have a more put together look in a matter of seconds. You have to be prepared right? Its the details that make the outfit. Here’s what I wore..

OOTD: Spring Style

Happy Friday!

         Lately I’ve been very inspired by Spring and its bright colors so I decided to do an outfit post for the blog. I live in Newport Beach, California therefore I love colorful outfits and flowy silhouettes and with Easter coming up, I though what better than yellow to start the weekend;) I believe there’s a hue of yellow for everyone whether its Amber, Golden, Canary, Ivory, you just have to find the one that works best with your skin tone. Also with a long skirt like this it will help make your body look taller, slimmer and the best part? Its comfortable to wear! Its a fresh and easy look that is perfect for lunch with friends, meeting up with the bf for cocktails at sunset or even an afternoon of shopping;) Which Im never opposed to! Guilty..

I always try to keep it simple and ad just a few accessories. For this look I knew I wanted a statement necklace but didn’t want to over do it, so I went for a small clutch and sandals to keep it casual.
