Pops of Pink for Benefit Cosmetics

Earlier this week I attended the fabulous grand opening of the Benefit Cosmetics boutique in La Jolla (hosted by Gilt City San Diego). Since I was heading there right after work, I decided to transition my work clothes into something more fun by adding a bold pink lip, changing my heels into silver ones and ditching the big work bag for a pink clutch- oh the joys of being on the go!

Yellow and Gray Party Decor

Happy Wednesday Friends! Today I bring you something other than fashion courtesy of my talented sister and her talented best friend Beba from MKR Creations who decorated my niece's First Communion Party.

After my niece Brielle's First Communion church ceremony, my sister hosted an intimate luncheon for close family and friends. The theme was a chic combination of yellow, gray and white with touches of burlap. Here are some pictures I took of the beautiful decor.

Neon Pumps

Since San Diego weather was a tad bit cloudy over the weekend, instead of the shorts I initially planned on wearing I went with a more covered up look to hit the town. Neon pumps always jazz up an outfit and when paired with jeans it gives the look a fun twist.

Have you been yearning to go on a Tropical vacation like I have? Unfortunately, I don't have one in sight, but these pants make me feel like I am! The tropical print drew me in and has me wishing for some shorts or a dress in the same tropical feel print. It's a good way to incorporate the tropics without looking like a total tourist.

Polka Dot and Coral

Don't you just love when the last minute outfit comes out better than what you originally planned? It was one of those frantic moments when I realized that the dress I bought to wear to my niece's first communion had a scary high slit in the back- hmmm, definitely not church appropriate! After sifting through dresses, I caught the glimpse of this pencil skirt in my closet and from there, this skirt offered so many matching options! In the end, I went with this coral top (you may have seen several times here on this blog) because I have a matching lipstick which always makes an outfit feel more cohesive.

Girls Night Out w Sally Hansen & Evite

This hot weather has made me pull out the shorts and skirts mid-Spring and had caught my untanned pale legs off guard! Since I haven't had time to lay out to tan I decided to use the Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs, to get some fresh looking legs for Girls Night Out. I was happy and relieved that the results are almost instant and it's so easy to use! 

 I have you covered on how to get your legs looking airbrushed below, but I couldn't help but include these adorable "Girls Night Out" ideas from Evite (see more here!)




As the heatwave pays San Diego another visit, it's time to bring my hot day wardrobe essentials out: a light weight maxi dress and cute sandals! These sandals from Naughty Monkey are amazingly comfortable and cute with the sparkly studs all over (coupon code for these below). We also have a high wind advisory and it didn't mean much to me until fellow blogger Laura and I went to take our pics- I literally thought the wind was going to blow us away!

Striped with Confidence

Saving for a wedding definitely curtails the clothing budget, but I know I can always count on my local Marshalls to carry designer fashion (of great quality) for very reasonable prices. One of the areas of concern when being budget conscious is my work wardrobe because professional attire can be pricey, but Marshalls gives me the confidence to find pieces (like this dress) that are office appropriate and can also be worn at happy hour!

Things that I check for in my work wear: 
-Length: You want to make sure the dress is not too short for the office.
-Front: No cleavage in the work place! This dress has a zipper on the front that can go all the way to the top to remain conservative.
-Material: No see through's, thick material is a must and wrinkle free will save you a lot of time in the morning.
This dress passed my test and when paired with a black blazer and black pumps, I'm ready for another busy day at the office! Today I bring you the spiced up version for happy hour!

Keepin' it Simple

Hi my name is Paulina and I'm addicted to my white blazer, my Hudson jeans, my new Tory Burch purse, and my Tory Burch flats. There I said it! I am a normal girl who reaches for the usual comfortable suspects when I'm heading out for a weekend stroll. For one, I needed to be comfortable as we shopped the Carlsbad Outlets (I was on the mega hunt for the Kate Spade Wellesly Agenda), looked at the Carlsbad flower fields, headed down to meet up with some friends for a drink at Stone Brewery Liberty Station, then for a good burger at Slater's 50/50. For such an eventful and busy day, this fashion blogger had to put the "production" (as my fiance calls it when I overdress) aside and tossed on my favorites as seen in the "Reworking my Closet" tid bit below.Hoop earrings like J.Lo, Hoop earrings, forever 21 hoop earrings, Yellow Top in the sun, Yellow top with jeans
