Maui wharf stroll

This outfit is actually impromptu because prior to airport departure time this is the closest thing I had to jeans. Oops. How was I supposed to know Maui is way more breezy, beautiful, Covergirl? 😛

I picked the perfect day to pair my Target tunic with my favorite head accessory, a mustard-yellow turban. Would you be brave enough to wear this outfit in front of tourists and California cool people alike? I also love how the ikat printed platforms match the greenery on my shirt! When in Rome..do as the Romans do! 😉

Let’s play a game since we’re all bored. Who do you think overpacked?

All dressed up and nowhere to go…

Rachel Zoe does purple

I feel like that title post is the story of my life right now. As much stuff as I have from accumulating shopping trips do I have events to go to? No…guess I’ll just have a fancy soiree in my room. Everyone’s invited! Bahahahahahahaha

Lately I’ve been craving a purple suit or rather, violet suit and this one’s from Rachel Zoe! I have yet to own anything from her line since she turned stylist to designer. Preen has a richer, hue of purple suit that I would die for! Course all finer fabrics come at a price $_$

To top off such a statement color I wanted to keep the accessories minimal. I just ordered a ribbon necklace off of Hautelook like the one shown here! (Except mines red/ coral/ orange family not black). But I am loving this CC Skye kinda bulletted gold necklace. I got the Monique Lehsman necklace for a steal! $33.

And since we can’t walk around barefoot I googled Fendi platform heels and thought these peeptoes would go nicely. I am all about the hidden sexiness and unexpected details and I love the inverted FF symbol by the toe box! The artwork around the heel is divine as well, resembles a hot, fiery rainbow!

Graduation Outfit #2

If you read my last blog post on what to wear to a graduation as an attendee you’re in for a treat! Tonight I wanted to comment on a cute and classic look fit for any graduate no matter the age level. Let’s start from the top.

For the hair I wanted to keep it simple and I love a beehive hair style because not only does it give you height, it’s elegant and so 1950s! Just be careful putting on and off your cap :p

I chose a sophisticated color combination that is timeless and age appropriate for all! A strapless, black and white gingham printed dress with a black sash keeps the focus on YOU!

The accessories is the fun part. I’ve always dreamt what it would feel like to wear Chanel jewelry and doubling up cascading Chanel pearls with the iconic C’s is a grand statement! All eyes are on you so why not LOOK the part?

Betsey Johnson makes darling accessories and my faves of hers are the rings! You can find both of these statement rings at Macy’s. Not only do the colors compliment each other but they’re in the same leopard family!

Lastly the shoes. I stumbled across these Pour La Victoire sideways stacked heel in a neutral color. So from the front it looks like any adorable peeptoe but turn sideways and you’ll be getting looks like you were Lady Gaga. I can’t get over how different and unexpected these shoes are combined with the overall style! Thoughts?

conGRADS! You did it 🙂
