Wednesday Greys

Good morning ! The heat wave has now officially hit Los Angeles and it finally feels like summer ! This weather has definitely making me excited for July 4th. Since i have been so busy i did not get to do a quick shoot for a post on July 4th outfits, but i promise to get on it a little bit ahead of time before holidays next time.


OUTFIT DETAILS:
T-shirt - F21, buy here
Handbag - F21, buy similar here and here 
Skirt - Urban Planet, sold out. Similar here and here
 Layered necklaces - Kate Spade & F21


As you can see this post is all about budget friendly items that are great for running errands during the hot summer days. I have been rolling up the short sleeve tops for a while now to give the outfit that extra detail. For that reason i have been paying attention to material when purchasing t-shirts as well as the length of the sleeve so that it allows you to roll it up. Also for the outfit that is as simple as a skirt and a top, making a knot in the front is also a great idea to spice up the outfit. This just shows you how a simple budget friendly outfit can be made into a great outfit that no one would even guess was under $50 total ! Now that is a steal deal.

Blazin

This look is all about budget friendly purchases that not only look good but are so comfortable and can be both dressed up and dressed down. When it comes to buying accessories on the budget and you do not want to buy it online, especially when you need it next day or so i highly recommend going into Marshall's. I have purchased so many amazing finds in their stores, anything from shoes to blouses and purses especially. Every time i have gone i never left disappointed. It is also great when looking to buy gifts ! 


 OUTFIT DETAILS:
Sneakers - Steve Madden, sold out. Similar on here and here 
Handbag - Madison West similar here
Denim Jacket - F2, buy here 
Tunic top/dress - H&M, similar here and here 
Arm candy - Michael Kors and Tiffany & Co. 


Excuse my messy hair, it has been drizzling all morning so i figured this was a perfect day for going more of a natural lazy day look.

Effortless Wednesday


June Gloom was in the full effect in the beginning of the month but thankfully now it is over and it finally feels like summer in Los Angeles. It not only is an effortless outfit but also looks cute and did i mention how comfortable it is ? I can never turn down a cute one piece, whether it is a romper or a jumpsuit when shopping around. Sabo Skirt is definitely a great website that has plenty of cute rompers, check out their website www.saboskirt.com . To  make the outfit not as casual i paired it up with a cute belt, cute sandals and a hat !

Romper - SABOSKIRT, sold out similar here and here
Wide brim fedora - boutique shop, but similar here and here 
Sandals - Chinese Laundry , similar here and here

Casual Sundaze

Casual Sundays are all about effortless style. Ripped jeans && oversized t-shirts paired up with some statement accessories make a perfect weekend outfit. I bet you have all noticed that gladiator style sandals have taken over the store shelfs and let me tell you i have been going back and forth with that little detail of an outfit. But i am very happy i finally decided to purchase these gladiator sandals from Chinese Laundry ! 


OUTFIT DETAILS:

Crossbody handbag - Madison West, sold out similar on here and here 
Ripped Jeans - Blank NYC, similar styles on here and here 
Gladiator sandals - Chinese Laundry, sold out. Similar here and here 
Studded oversized t-shirt - Forever 21 , sold out similar on here
Arm accessories - Michael Kors & Tiffany & Co.

I absolutely love plain style tops with a tiny bit of detail. This oversized t-shirt i purchased at Forever 21 has folded up sleeves and studded shoulders which adds a little edge to a simple outfit. 

Casual Sunday essentials.

Flower Power

June gloom is in a full effect here in Los Angeles right now, so i was super excited that the day we shot this look the day turned out to be just perfect. Anyhow, my latest fashion obsessions have definitely been lots of denim, light colors and fringe. In my opinion styling an outfit with just a right amount of denim can create a great look. As you can see in the photos below, even though i am wearing 3inch heels, denim dresses the outfit down as well as the fringe that is on the heels that helps to make the outfit look more casual and simple. This might actually be the one and only way to get away with wearing heels in the daytime ! 


OUTFIT DETAILS
Denim button-down : Anthropology , buy here 
Shorts:  Aeropostale , buy here 
Handbag: ZARA sold out at the moment 
Fringe heels: Chinese Laundry - sold out. Similar on here 


As i have mentioned before, open toe fringe heels i am wearing in the photos by Chinese Laundry is currently sold out. However, Schutz has an amazing variety of fringe heels that are perfect for the summer time. You can see different options on here.

Insta Sky

After looking through a camera roll back at the photos from May, i am happy it is over. I think it was the craziest and busiest month of this year so far ! It was filled with my late birthday celebration, mother's day and her birthday as well ! Not to mention all the pop up events now that weather is warmer.

LIFE VIA CAMERA ROLL
MAY

I have mentioned in my previous posts and i will mention it again, if you are looking to buy the most beautiful flowers and want to have plenty of options as well as a great price flowers market in Downtown LA is the way to go ! I have purchased 50 roses for my mom for her birthday, which she absolutely loved as of course every mother would and believe it or not it was only $34. What a deal ! 
This year i was extremely late with celebrating my birthday, which originally was on April 28th, i ended up celebrating a whole month later. But in my opinion it is better late then never. OUTFIT DETAILS: Pleated maxi skirt from SABOSKIRT, and a plain crop top from a shop on Melrose in LA.
Is this real life... Champagne with bacon ? If you are ever in Venice area, i highly recommend trying out the restaurant called Scopa Italian Roots. I went there for sunday funday kinda brunch and the food was absolutely delicious and so were the drinks. 
My favorite part of attending events :p table filled with sweets
Spring event at Malibu Rocky Oaks was absolutely breathtaking. I will be doing a post just on MRO soon on my blog, stay updated. If you are looking for a venue to have a bridal shower or a wedding at, this venue is amazing. OUTFIT DETAILS: Top Charlotte Russe, maxi pleated skirt Urban Outfitters
This year is probably one of the most exciting year, so many weddings and babies ! Love for sure is in the air. Photo taken at my friend's baby shower.
