Hot Florals

Floral Dress Pink Blush, Floral Dress for summer, perfect summer outfit, San diego summer outfit
This weekend I am headed off to celebrate my bachelorette party in... tun tun tun... where else? Vegas! Follow on along on snapchat under 'lilbitsofpau' to see the parts that make it *heh heh (nervous laugh)* Not sure what my bridesmaids have in store for me, all I know is that this ensemble featuring this gorge Pink Blush dress is perfect to take the day in Sin City by storm and shop, drink and gamble. I hope to shoot my night outfits for y'all, but in case you want to see my past Vegas outfits click here!



Staying Cool

San Diego fashion blogger, san diego style bloggers, white airy top, pink blush, how to wear a white top with jeans
Lately I have been gravitating to pairing airy tops with anything I wear because of this very unpredictable San Diego weather! Let me tell you how unpredictable, this past Saturday the sun was out blazing at about 80 degrees so I thought it was the perfect opportunity to work on my tan. I put my tanning oil on, my bikini and headed out to our community pool down the street. Not even 5 minutes after I had laid out, clouds rolled in and started raining! #tanningfail It turned out to be a full on storm 10 minutes later- like really?!

Anywho, back to this airy top from Pink Blush it has cool geometric shapes that give it some pizzaz, giving any outfit that effortless stylish feel. When I saw this top I saw many outfit opportunities- with jean shorts, with a skirt, but ultimately I went with my favorite... jeans!


Floral and Flattering Maxi

Maxi dresses are my favorite on those "I'm too lazy to make an ensemble" days, when I compromise how flattering clothes look on me, however this maxi dress from Pink Blush worked its magic- it is as flattering as it is comfortable! To top it off, this same dress comes in an array of fashionable patterns and prints, from tribal to damask print, to other prints that may fit your style. What I also like about this maxi dress is that it is a statement in itself and doesn't require much accessorizing. I ended up wearing this dress to my friend Patty's garden party and it was a total hit!


My Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Picks

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is a big deal not only for us usual shopaholics, but for savvy shoppers due to the highly discounted prices on amazing brand name items. Typically when prices are slashed by this much, it is because the items are on their way out (from previous seasons), but with the Nordstrom Anniversary sale, it's the other way around. For a limited time you can shop Pre-Fall 2015 products both in store and online at highly discounted prices. These are items that are totally on or ahead of trend, and will go back to full price when the sale is over on August 2nd (which will be a sad day). It's time to nab any items that you may have been eye'ing, like this Michael Kors watch that is down to $166 from $250, or this adorable Kate Spade Crossbody now $98 from $150. You'll notice that my picks are pieces that can live in your closet for many years, (hello, I still have my MK watch after 4 years!) and beauty items I have been coveting for a long time.

Early Access for Nordstrom Rewards Members is right now until July 16th, and on July 17th the sale will open up to the public. If you're a Nordstrom credit card or debit card holder, you get first dibs on a lot of brand name items that are sure to sell out! Obviously you can open a card now, but I would only recommend that if it's in your budget ;)

If you're not a Nordstrom card holder here's a sneak peek of all my faves- make sure to get your hands on them on July 17- August 2nd!

Relaxed Trench

The struggle for a work-life and wedding planning balance is real y'all! Last week, I felt the stress on my body, my heart would pump faster at certain points of the day and I even ranted on snapchat (username: lilbitsofpau ... heaayy!).

After working on my day off, I decided that things needed to change in my life, if not now then in baby steps. First step of my strategy was to not open my work laptop for a day, so on Fourth of July I didn't turn it on, I enjoyed the day with family and friends, watched the fireworks as if it were the first time in my life AND ate without restrictions (since I've been on wedding diet more).

You might be wondering what my whole shpeal has to do with this outfit, well....


American Woman

With 4th of July just a couple of days away,  I had to add a touch of red, white and blue to my casual look. Mission accomplished by this cool patriotic jelt belt from Shimmer which is made of 100% recycled material and its elasticity is a great fit. Oddly enough, we had some torrential rain as I was shooting the outfit, so it literally rained on my outfit parade, but the vision of a 4th of July BBQ with a cold glass of wine kept me smiling (and hiding for cover). 

I have also included additional 4th of July outfit ideas at the end of this post if you're interested. Have a terrific and safe weekend if you are here in the U.S.!!
