Print + Metallics *Collab with The Dressy Chick*

Prints and metallics: two great trends in themselves but together even better! Now multiply that by two outfits in this collaboration post with fellow blogger The Dressy Chick as we bring you our own takes on the Print and Metallic combo.

I love the Dressy Chick's take on these two trends! The polka dot on polka dot is such a fun combination and paired with pink gives it a girly touch. Great fashion minds think alike as we both sported metallic heels! For my print, I decided to wear these black and teal printed pants and accented the outfit with gold accessories.

I met the gorgeous Hadasa from The Dressy Chick at LuckyFabb this year and we hit it off! I got to chat with her more when she drove down to San Diego for the Poshmark party I cohosted. She not only brings fashion to the table, but also lots of great info about beauty products! Definitely check out her blog here and if you are in the Laguna Beach area this Saturday, she will be hosting a fun Blogger's Night Out (flyer below).

Watercolor Casual

Happy Monday... I mean, Tuesday! It was a long anticipated three day weekend where I put the computer away, didn't work and just chilled. On Sunday, the boyfriend and I grilled some chicken and burgers out in the balcony accompanied with wine (and beer for him) and watched the sunset. The weather was perfection, and I took all of my shorts out of storage in anticipation for SUMMER! Here is what I wore to bbq- super casual, airy and comfy. 

Hope you all had a great weekend! It was a weekend commemorating those who lost their lives serving this great country and fighting for our freedom.

Tropical Maxi

This flowy maxi dress was ideal for a fun filled day in sunny San Diego weather. This dress is awesome not only because of the tropical print and comfortable shape, but it is also from H&M's conscious collection- their eco-friendly line made from environmentally sustainable materials at a reasonable price point. 

I paired it up with my comfiest of wedges and gold accessories, but it could also be dressed up with some pumps (which I plan to do in an upcoming blog post). Have a great weekend!!

Neon Pink Pop

The mirrored silver heels that I raved over in a previous post are back! They have since become my go-to's because they add more spice to an outfit than the usual black heel. In this outfit, they went perfectly with this Charlotte Russe blazer that drew me in with its neon pink trim and zipper details. Topped it off with my silver Tacori "Silver Lights" Earrings and out the door I went to have dinner and drinks with my big sister (and photog for the night- love you sista!). Happy Wednesday everyone... we're halfway there! Enjoy!

Classy Navy Blue and Mint

Once in a blue moon (no pun intended), I style my look around a necklace. Such was the effect of this gorgeous "Lunch in Paris" Statement Necklace from Pop of Chic which is the perfect touch of elegance to any outfit. There are so many ways to wear this necklace, but for starters I paired it with this navy blue and mint trim dress that I actually bought for the purpose of going with this necklace! I wore this outfit to attend my friend's baby shower over the weekend.

Hope you all had a great weekend. Have a great Monday!

Poshmark Party Outfit & Event Pics

Last week, I was so honored to co-host the "Sunshine Party" San Diego Poshmark Party at the W Hotel Rooftop. I had a great time meeting the Poshmark team in person, seeing my fellow San Diego Style Bloggers, and meeting other Poshmark users- all while enjoying the rooftop ambiance with a glass of wine. The time flew by as I did what I do best, mingle and pose! 

Many thanks for everyone who came out, especially to the Poshmark team for visiting San Diego and organizing this wonderful event. Here is what I wore and see all the fun pictures below of us in front of the famous Poshmark Party silver wall!

Silver Touch

I've been loving the mirrored silver heel trend, but I hadn't tried it mainly because of the price points that I had been seeing, yes I'm talking to you Jimmy Choo and J.Crew! Lo-and-behold I found these babies on clearance while perusing the shoe section at Target (you know, when I should have been purchasing household items) and threw them into my basket in disbelief. I have a strong feeling you will be seeing a lot of these heels around here, especially since I'm starting to plan outfits around the shoe!

Rainy Day Schedule

San Diego is synonymous with sunny weather, but unfortunately today is not one of those lovely days we are known for *womp womp* Since I am a glass half full kind of gal, I had to take advantage of this rainy weather to bust out my Hunter Boots! How I missed them! And since we are in Spring, I had to add a pop of pastel in the form of this pink trench that I have been wanting to wear for like, ever.

Have a great sunny or rainy or ?? Tuesday!
