Beige on Beige

There’s no denying that beige on beige is one of the hottest trends of the season, but also one of the few I was hesitant to try.

It’s been popping up for months on feeds and in fashion articles, but it wasn’t until i was scrolling my own actual closet that I even consider trying it out for myself. When I think monochromatic dressing my first instinct is to reach for blacks, greys, whites or even dramatic colors. 

Beige is a color that for whatever reason seems to get a bland rap. However, as the runways have proven (at least to me) when paired all together it creates a classic look that still has an easy casual vibe that says, “I just threw this one before running out the door”. 

Will this be my go to color from now on? No, but I will definitely be reaching for it way more often now!

Taking a Moment

Mixing it up this spring with a shorter cut and different color, and doing a different kind of spring cleaning.

After many many weeks of constantly overbooked weekends, I decided it was high time to tackle the monstrosity that my roots had become. It wasn’t until I was leaving the salon feeling like a million bucks, that I realized how much I’d needed to just set aside some me time. It’s so easy to say yes to plans when they are all something I want to do, but I’m slowly discovering just how important it is to slow down and schedule in days where there’s either pampering to be done, or absolutely nothing at all. Consider this my own unique way of spring cleaning—cleaning up my schedule. 

Happy Monday everyone! 

Feelin’ the Green

I love how throwing on a loose sweater over a dress can completely change the look and feel of an outfit.

Sweater: H&M / Dress: C/MEO Collective / Boots: Zara / Purse: Prada
Recently I’ve really leaned in to getting more use and wear out of even the simplest of items. This dress when paired with my camel coat and the same boots was perfectly elegant and chic for a date night, but wanted to make it more daytime appropriate. It’s a bit on the lower cut side, and all that white is asking for disaster when you combine it clutziness with toddler hands, so I figured why not try and cover some of it up? It completely changed the look exactly how I wanted it to and I’m happy to report that the dress is still (miraculously) white! 

Distressed, but Not Stressed

A flirty dress and distressed denim jacket are my perfect spring combo I’ve decided.

I knew as soon as I saw this dress it would be absolutely perfect for a day spent at Malibu Wines celebrating one of my favorite people. The light mesh material, beautiful floral print, and swingy tiers of ruffles made me feel like a fairy princess. We donned flower crowns, drank plenty of rosè and ate out weight in cheese. It was a perfect spring day celebrating my best friend and I look forward to many more days filled in the sun with friends (and wine)! 

Floral Fever

Definitely leaning towards making Friday florals a regular occurrence.

Not sure if it’s just the much needed break from the rain and cold, but I have fully embraced spring in full force! I’ve been reading oodles of articles on spring trends, some of which I tried out today—not sure how I feel about the tucked pants, can’t tell if it’s too parachute pantlike for my taste, but I’m enjoying getting out of my comfort zone more and more. 
Florals on the other hand are one spring trend I’ve never had a problem embracing. I’ve had these pants for years, and they still never get old! I love the combo of muted colors, and light pastels mixed in. They’re the perfect piece to transition into more outlandish floral patterns, which I fully intend to do before the season is through!

Spring Bling

Spring has finally sprung and I couldn’t be happier to start embracing pastels, florals and blue skies!

Though the weather is not nearly as pleasant today as it was last week (looking at you 15 minutes of torrential downpour–my shoes are still drying out), I was determined to still embrace the first day of spring in my usual fashion–on theme! We all know I love any excuse to celebrate, so I whipped out my blingiest necklace,  which felt perfect in all its florally goodness, and built my outfit from there. 

Happy first day of Spring everyone! 

A Modern Twist

Fully embracing the 80s details of this blazer I just thrifted, while also keeping it modern.

I went on the hunt this weekend for something to wear to an upcoming 80s themed musical for a girlfriends birthday, and have not been able to stop wearing it. To keep it modern I paired it was a chiffon camisole and green slides and skinny jeans. Even though this is preppier than I’d usually go, the exaggerated shoulder pads and leather trim keep it feeling funky and playful. I didn’t expect to get so much wear out of anything I bought for this show, but that just goes to show how cyclical fashion is and how much fun it can be to play around with items your normally wouldn’t think to wear everyday.
