Work & Play

As you know I’m a huge fan of versatile pieces – outfits you can dress up or down and wear for multiple different occasions. This black Asos culotte jumpsuit fits the description perfectly. Not to mention that it’s under $25. I’m often on the hunt for cute outfits that are work-appropriate, affordable and unique. Asos fitting can be tricky, but once you try a couple items you’ll have the sizing down. I scored this and a few other pieces during the Memorial Day Weekend sales. I can’t wait to share them with you! In the meantime, I hope you enjoy the styling of this outfit with my favorite Ted Baker floral pumps and Kate Spade quilted bag.

Hot Summer Styles

Are you ready to say “Goodbye” to summer? I didn’t think so!

Many stores are now hosting back-to-school events, but summer is still here; especially in So Cal, we hope to enjoy it a little longer. Summer is a season of long days, many fun activities and, of course, sexy looks. So, let’s talk fashion! If you like staying current and on top of all the new trends, I hope you like 70s fashion style. The 70s are back this summer, and will stay in your wardrobe throughout this fall.

For this post, I have included some of the hottest looks of the season that also happen to be trendy during the 70s era.

Wide Leg Pants are definitely not for everyone. You will either love them or hate them. I personally love the bell-bottom jeans—they can make your legs look longer, especially if you wear them with a pair of heels (opt for clogs and/or wedges). If you are looking for a dressier look, I would recommend the palazzo pant. Be careful choosing the color because with the wrong print it might look like you just got out in your PJs.

The Silk Blouse creates a very feminine look. Front ties or bows are very chic for a night out or a day at the office.

Bangles are back! Let’s not forget the accessories. If you are not a fan of earrings, bangles are right for you! Easy to put on, too—you actually don’t need to ask for help or twist your arm as you do with bracelets…

High Waist Swim Pieces Those of you who like the sun, probably rock a new swim piece at the beach every year. Yes, the high waist provides more coverage and prevents your back from tanning, but it also hides that extra tummy =) (I’m sure new moms like myself will appreciate that!) Stay away from stripes as they tend to enlarge the body.
