Twirling in Tulle

April 23, 2014

For every person, there is one piece of clothing that makes them feel special. For me, that item is Kiyonna's Twirling in Tulle skirt. It ties into my romantic, classic style and makes me feel extraordinary. I love that I can dress it up with heels and a button up or, like I did in today’s outfit, make it a little more dressy-casual with a v-neck tee and flats. Wear this skirt; I guarantee you will feel the same way.

My apologies for the one day late Friday Faves post. I was out with a friend enjoying the beautiful weather and shopping at the new Ulta in town.

Below are my faves from IGIGI by Yuliya Raquel's new spring collection appropriately titled The Fresh Sophisticate. The new arrivals are filled with spring colors, grown woman silhouettes, and beautiful patterns. Most of the collection is available now on Which piece is your fave?

Battling the Chill in BB Dakota & Gwynnie Bee

April 10, 2014

I may not live in the coldest place on earth. But, that's not to say California does not have its share of cold, rain, and gloom. On those days, I keep my look simple and warm with a pretty sweater and jeans. This sweater is by BB Dakota via Gwynnie Bee. I have never tried the brand, so it was nice to experience and test it out hassle-free with the monthly subscription clothing service. The sweater, a size 3X, fits true to size and features the most romantic rose pattern. I love wearing it with my boyfriend jeans for a casual, daytime look. I could also see myself layering it over a skater skirt and nude flats when I'm feeling a little flirty.

My Weekend Look

April 07, 2014

I love a good white tee and jeans. I also love weekends. Put them together and I’m pretty much guaranteed to have a good time. This past weekend was no exception. I’ve had a head cold since Tuesday. So, I wore my trusty tee and new Lane Bryant Weekend Jeans to make me feel better. The two wardrobe staples coupled with my favorite J.Crew Panama hat and Wet Seal scarf almost made me forget I was sick.

I love the simplicity of a t-shirt and jeans. It’s a timeless look that can be accessorized in any way, for almost any event. I could wear the combination every day, but I’m afraid my other clothes would get extremely jealous. To keep peace in my closet, the outfit is saved for Saturday or Sunday. Once the end of the work week rolls around, it’s just me, the weekend, and my t-shirt and jeans.

Friday Faves: ELOQUII

March 28, 2014

I love shopping. Duh. Any moment that is not spent working, is spent online window shopping. I bookmark, pin, and share so many of my favorites. Why not post them on my blog, too? I could not think of a better store than ELOQUII to feature for my first installment of Friday Faves. The once defunct plus size fashion brand for sizes 14-24 is back and better than ever. Under new, independent ownership with members from the original team, ELOQUII relaunched in late February with pieces that are fashion-forward, colorful, structured, and everything in between. Keep scrolling to look at my current favorites! Which do you like the most?
