Ted Baker Embroidered Suit

Can I just start by saying I’m nowhere near ready for the holidays! Wearing festive colors gets me in the spirit though. I decided to sport this Ted Baker embroidered suit I found last year on 6pm.com. I love the neon stitching – what do you think?

Wishing everyone a Happy Holiday Season!

Holiday Cheer and Gifts From Downtown Summerlin

It’s the most wonderful time of year…or so they say. It may not be so wonderful, when you have to wander around the mall trying to find the perfect gifts for everyone on your list. Don’t panic, I’ve got you! I guarantee you if you head to Downtown Summerlin you can find everything you need in only a couple hours. You just have to make sure you don’t get distracted trying on that off-the-shoulder sweater that you really loved last time you were there. ☺️

For the beauty lover
Jo Malone at Dillard’s – granted their scents are like no others, but the hand massages that they do on the spot will leave you so relaxed, you can go shopping for the whole day!
g Aveda Salon & Spa – from natural and organic skin care products to makeup and hair, they have it all. If you’re still on the fence, grab a gift card for their most amazing facials, nail care or hair services.

For the foodie
Oil & Vinegar – I felt like I was in a supermarket in a small Italian village. So many flavors to choose from…This is heaven for those who love to cook and try new spices. There are plenty of different gifts and sets to choose from. If you’re lucky like me, they might let you try them, delicious!

California Pizza Kitchen – You may want to save this for last. That way you can reward yourself with their sangria flight. After all, you’ve been shopping all day. If you still have someone left on your list, a gift card from CPK will make anyone happy.


For the fashionista
Leather Couture by Jessica Galindo – Ok, ladies I might be a little obsessed with this store, but once you see Jessica’s designs you will have your Christmas wish list endless.

For the home maker
West Elm at Downtown Summerlin – can we talk home decor? Just look at this table setting and say no more! Not to worry though, they do have affordable priced items such as these cute little cacti 🌵

Finally, enjoy and Happy Holidays! 🎄🎅

Shopping in Las Vegas

I keep waiting for fall weather so I can rock my OTK boots, but it is still in the 80s here in Las Vegas. I know most of you are probably busting the scarves and rain coats, but not me. If you need to enjoy some warm weather, you should consider flying to Vegas. Did I mention all the great shopping you can do here?

The outfit I am wearing features all my favorite local boutiques. If you find yourself in Vegas, you should definitely check them out. You can thank me later! 🙂

  • Parque – For the ladies who “enjoy the simple things in life, but whose style is anything but “just simple.” So well said! You can find all your staple pieces here. This boutique carries emerging designers as well as well-established fashion labels.
  • Gypsy05 – A high-end boutique offering a large variety of boho chic clothing items. Organic cotton, handmade pieces, gorgeous prints, comfortable fabrics yet stylish looks – you will be all about it, especially if you’re a mom. Gypsy05 has plenty of accessories you will fall in love too. The store is located at Tivoli Village in Summerlin, an Italian-like shopping center where you can find some good coffee and eats.
  • Palm Eyewear – A local brand takes sunglasses to the next level. Trendy and affordable – what more can a girl ask for? The style I’m wearing is called Malibu, but there are so many designs to choose from. Happy hunting!
  • Desert Daisy Jewelry – If you are into boho chic style, you will find yourself in heaven here. The talented owner, Emma Roberts, designs her pieces from scratch and can custom make pretty much anything. From statement necklaces, to unique hair sticks, this is a great place to find some cool accessories.

Walking in Gingham

Florals, gingham print, ruffles – this Nasty Gal jumpsuit has all the current trends I’m loving this summer, and can’t get enough of it. I prefer the dressy look, and it makes a great date night outfit. If you throw on a white T-shirt underneath you could make it work even for the office. The material is so light and it fits to perfection, just like any Nasty Gal piece I’ve worn. Did I mention the best part yet? Use GET50 for 50% off and get it for only $30! If you want to take advantage of the sale while it lasts, check out more cute jumpsuits and rompers here.

How do you like to style one pieces?

Styling a Vintage Shirt

The vintage shirt – a trend that is perhaps here to stay for a while. I feel late jumping in on this trend, but I finally found a shirt that I love! My husband got this one for me from the Zappos.com gift shop, so unfortunately it’s not available online. When I saw it at first, I loved the design but it was a bit baggy and not flattering at all. Of course, I had to make it my own, and it only took two easy steps. Cutting the sleeves and tying a knot on the back (or the front) and voila.

Here I am styling this vintage shirt with one of my favorite Guess denim skirts. Most of the time I wear it with denim shorts as well for a more casual look.

How do you like to style your vintage tops?

P.S. My younger son, aka my mini me had to get in one of my photos below. He’s excited to start kindergarten tomorrow. ❤

Purple Hues

After nearly two months without posting, I’m making a comeback in one of my favorite finds from the Zara sale. My work travel and family summer adventures have kept me busy, but you can find all about it on my Instagram here.

If you are short like me, you know the struggle of finding a great fit, especially for jumpsuits. When I tried this romper on, I knew it was a winner. I loved the colors too, and I have been wearing it as a casual outfit most of all. Here, I decided to dress it up with a pair of caged heels and add a pop of purple.

The amethyst leather bracelet is handmade by Desert Daisy Jewelry, and you can find it here along with other unique crafted jewelry items including the hairsticks that I frequently wear. The tassel earrings I’m wearing below are also handmade. I found them in a boutique in Sydney, Australia during one of my latest trips.

I can’t wait to share more Australian finds with all of you, so stay tuned! ❤
