Blush and gold is such a beautiful combination where girly meets glam. After having a blush and gold wedding I thought I would be over the color scheme, but I'm even more obsessed with it now that it has oozed into my home office! Since it's my personal space in our house I wanted to be totally me- girly, chic and cute! I started with a gold and white combo that I shared here and after introducing pink it all started feeling more cohesive. Being surrounded by these pretty desk accessories and decor while blogging or working from home inspires me, and for all you that love this combo too I'm sharing some of the cutest pieces I have and have stumbled upon while shopping for my home office!

Hello my name is Paulina and I am a coffee addict, especially on a Monday! I'm not much of a mocha or capuccino type of girl, but I loooove my regular coffee strong! So when my friends ask "let's meet for coffee" I'm like "heck yeah!". Today's look is a stylish coffee date outfit, not too overdressed, not too casual, but just like my coffee - perfect.
When the clouds rolled in yesterday in San Diego, I excitedly put together this Fall-inspired outfit! I literally have a "to be worn when it cools off" section hanging in my closet and these pieces were at the top of the list... AND THEN, as I was linking the items for you below I realized that this biker jacket, this dress and these boots were all on SALE! So there I went again, seeing what else was on sale and sure enough I bought more stuff (eek!). In my defense, they were all versatile pieces and will most likely become staples in my fall/winter wardrobe. On a side note: I have started to share my fashion deals of the day on twitter on a daily basis and here on the right side of my blog. My goal is to share these deals I keep finding that I think are worth it because I love budget-friendly pieces that appear as they were beyond the budget-friendly price.
Today I have some VERY exciting news: I am in the October issue of the national magazine Latina! You can find me in the #LatinaStyleWars section on page 22 talking about how I style statement tights! When Latina Magazine reached out to me for this feature (first I jumped up and down because I grew up reading Latina Magazine #dreamcometrue) and then so many ideas flowed through my head (i.e. floral tights, dotted tights, colored tights) so I ran off to Target to see what I could find. I stumbled upon these unique patterned tights that I knew would go well with an LBD or a black skirt. I wasn't really digging the look being all black so I tossed on my fave blazer at the moment, this red outing blazer from cabi which instantly added the fall vibes to it.

Among the many things I love about cabi, their devotion to women empowerment continues to astonish me. For over eleven years, The Heart of cabi Foundation has given over $45 million in clothing distributed to women in need, 7,600 in small business loans funded and has impacted 60 countries! Every season cabi designs one piece in their collection that when sold, a portion of the net proceeds goes to foundation's wonderful efforts. This season that piece is this Heartbreaker top that I'm wearing below!
cabi has featured me and three other fabulous bloggers styling this top where each of us gives it our own spin, so there's a total of 4 outfit ideas where the Heartbreaker top is the star - see the feature here!
Happy Wednesday! Today I'm tapping into my femininity with touch of menswear thanks to this blouse from the LC Lauren Conrad for Kohls collection (which FYI is currently on sale!) I love that it's a juxtaposition between the two! I decided to roll with it and it kinda made me feel a little gossip girl. You can also wear this top with jeans or a black skirt with a moto jacket over if this is too preppy for your taste.
It is always a great feeling when you buy a new piece, but lately I have felt a better feeling when I use what I have and make it look different because 1) I save money 2) there's not much space left in my closet and 3) I exercise my creative juices. After realizing I kept featuring the same pieces just styled differently here on the blog, I decided to put together some of my favorite tips in hopes that this will help you re-style some pieces in your closet! Let me know if you try it in the comment section below or tag me on Instagram @lilbitsofpau!
1. Wearing a dress as a top. I loved the dress below so much that I wanted to wear it again, but for it not to look like a major repeater I wore it as a top. If the fit and length permit, tuck in the front portion of your dress into your jeans and voila!
