Slip Dresses are everywhere right now and I can’t get enough of them. There are about SIX rad ways to wear a slip dress that I can’t wait to tell you guys about!
I conquered Coachella weekend 1 and I am here to give you tips and tricks for your time at Coachella. This was my first time at Coachella or a music festival in general so I was a little nervous, not going to lie. But, of course, the weekend was so much fun! My sisters and I got to go for free because my sisters company does work for Juice Served Here so we worked 2 quick 4 hour shifts and then could do whatever we wanted during the festival. We also, had free stay because we stayed at my Mom’s friends place in Palm Desert which was about 25 mins from Coachella. The house was so cute like a desert Barbie dream home, I loved it. On the way down to Coachella we stopped at the Cabazon Dinosaurs so they could photobomb some pics of us ~hehe~ and of course we had to stop at Hadley’s to get their famous banana date shake ~just try it, promise it won’t disappoint~ Pack lots of snacks for the drive! We left crazy early at 5am because we DID NOT want it to take us 6 hours to get to Palm Springs so I suggest you do the same or the traffic is serious hell.
Another one of my favorite boutiques is Irene’s Story! I always go to the one in Huntington Beach, California and it is awesome. I can always count on this boutique to have way too many things that I want!! It is all always so cute and organized on the inside, which makes shopping so much more pleasurable. This boutique has so many merging styles in one store, the clothes are always super fashionable and extremely affordable. What is better than cute clothes that don’t break the bank?! That’s right, nothing! I am going to show you an outfit that I got last weekend while visiting my favorite SoCal boutique.
And yes, EEHHHPP that IS Lauren Conrad! Anyway, done fangirling (for now!) I have wanted some crochet shorts for soooo long and this pair from Irene’s Story was perfect. I love how they fit and how comfy they are. I love how I played with the colors of my outfit and mixed it up with a lilac fedora and a turquoise necklace! I love wearing hats and I love turquoise so I thought the two together would be perfect!
I hope you all get a chance to visit Irene’s Story someday in the near future and check out how awesome it is for yourselves! Don’t forget to check out my other Boutique Chic post from a few months ago!
Visit Irene’s Story to stay Vest Dressed! 🙂
Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! Or in my case I should say Glalentine’s Day! I had such a fun day today hanging out with my sister, her pup, and my new bestie! I started out the day by going to see the LOVE wall again! This wall has just been repainted about two weeks ago so even though I have already done a post in front of it, I thought why not do another on the one, the only, VALENTINE’S DAY!
These last few days have been so exciting and emotional! I have officially graduated from college (so exciting) but unfortunately I have had to say goodbye to so many good friends. To all my beautiful friends out there, it wasn’t good bye it was see you soon <3
I thought putting this outfit together was perfect because now that I am a graduate I have to start dressing business casual for interviews and future jobs! This would be a perfect business casual look while still being able to show your full personality! Let’s get to the outfit details! And of course, there is plaid, because well, I am just MAD for PLAID!!
I have to start by saying that I was SO thankful for my sister letting me borrow her awesome new Kate Spade Sunglasses! They were a lifesaver. For some reason I could not keep my eyes open for the life of me (it was tragic) so I slipped these diva Kate Spade Sunglasses on and I was set! I am completely jealous of these sunglasses and want some for myself! I love how big the frames are on them and how fun they are to wear!
Of course my skirt is plaid, which I love! Not only is this skirt plaid but it is also scalloped at the bottom making it the best of both worlds! This skirt is from ASOS and I would highly suggest it. Pairing a white ruffle cami with this skirt and a nice blazer like I did hear makes for a very fun yet sophisticated look.
Let’s talk tights!! I have received few questions about what outfits to wear tights with and where I get my tights so I am going to discuss those questions! The tights I am wearing are from J.Crew and whenever I want some new tights I always go to J.Crew to get them! The tights that J.Crew sells are really great quality and they last for a really long time. I love wearing a thicker tight (like a sweater tight) as well, it just depends on what type of outfit I am pairing with the tights! Most tights are footed which is nice because if you are pairing tights with an outfit it is so you can stay warm while still wearing versatile outfits in the wintery months and staying chic. So don’t be scared to try some tights with an outfit because it could make all the difference!
I am a complete Gossip Girl fanatic (hopefully some of you are too??), and I have to say I LOVE Blair Waldorf so whenever I can I try to channel her and I think this outfit did a pretty good job at channeling my inner Blair Waldorf! If you have a Gossip Girl inspired outfit be sure to comment and show me!
This outfit is pretty funky fresh in my opinion! I for some reason feel like an ice skater in this outfit and I am still not really sure why! Haha non the less this is such a fun outfit to wear and I feel like I am channeling my younger Carrie Bradshaw from the Carrie Diaries (anyone else watch that?!) Anyway let’s get to my outfit details!!
This outfit I put together is just so fun! You cannot go wrong with a simple skater skirt (also currently 60% off)! They are perfect all year long! Just throw some tights on like I did if you are wearing it in the wintery months!
The bow top I am wearing is from J.Crew but they do not sell it anymore unfortunately! This bow top however is almost better because it is long sleeve, which will keep you warmer in these wintery months! It also has horses and a big bow on it, which I absolutely love!! This cozy cardigan is from Brandy Melville and I literally pair this sweater with almost every outfit! It is also perfect to pack in your bag with you because it is so light weight!
I loveeeee this head wrap I am wearing (color: heathered mint)! I love wearing hair accessories to spice up my normal hair routines, they are so fun!
What are some of your favorite funky fresh styles?! Be sure to comment and let me know
As the holiday season is quickly approaching the fun of buying gifts for you BFF, sister, or Mom can sometimes be so difficult! As you all know I absolutely love shopping and I actually like buying gifts too! It’s fun because you can give them what you would wear (in hopes to borrow it, hehe)! So in light of some people having a difficult time thinking of gifts to give their sister’s and mother’s I have put together some gift ideas for this holiday season!
First I HAVE to talk about this micro Kate Spade purse!! I saw these when I was home over Thanksgiving break with my Mom and Sister’s and I just fell in love!! These purses are TINY but so so perfect for your phone, wallet, and of course lipstick! This purse is the perfect purse when you do not want to lug around your whole life with you! Just slip it on your shoulder and go! Seriously guys, I’m obsessed with it! Marc by Marc Jacobs and Michael Kor’s are making little micro purses too!! Only six inches wide, I cannot get over how cute they are!
What could be cuter than black and white polka dot Betsy Johnson flannel pajamas?! That’s right, nothing! I love cute pajama sets and every winter I love getting a new set to wear while I’m home for the holidays! If your parents live in a very cold state like mine do then this Barefoot Dreams robe, slouchy beanie by Ugg Australia, and UGG slippers would also make for perfect gifts and they will keep you Cozy chic all winter long!
What Mom, Sister, and BFF doesn’t like getting new lipgloss and candles?! You cannot go wrong when it comes to the Bobbi Brown lip gloss! They come in a nice pack of four (and gift with purchase if you are ordering from Nordstrom, win)! Another perk of this awesome lip gloss is that it is not sticky! I hate when I buy a new lip gloss and it is super sticky but this Bobbi Brown lip gloss is not sticky at all and completely smooth! The Kate Spade candle collection is so cute and so much fun! Each candle has a different saying on it and during the winter months is my absolute favorite time to light candles, makes the whole house feel so warm and cozy!
Perfume is always a great gift to give someone! Most women use perfume everyday so getting new every year is always much appreciated. I have always loved how the Chance by Chanel smells, it is one of my go to perfumes! And last but not least, the lovely Tory Burch has a new watch collection out that I love! This Tory Burch watch would be such a fun layering piece to add to your arm candy! It is a wrap around watch so it is a bit more unique than just a normal watch band.
I hope I have helped some of you out when it comes to giving gifts or maybe gave some of you some ideas of what to add to your wish list this year!
