2017 Fall Trends

I know it’s still summer (especially here in California) but I cannot tell you guys how impatiently I’m waiting for fall to come. The seasonal drinks, holidays, decor- I am 100% here for it all. But above all that, I love love love fall fashion and I’m so excited for this year’s trends.

I’ve spent the last 4 years in the Midwest during the fall, which is definitely different that California fall. But I think that these three trends are extremely doable no matter which coast you’re on!

Statement Sleeve
This is probably my absolute favorite trend of the moment and one that will probably pop up a lot on the blog. A fun statement sleeve instantly elevates any outfit in my opinion and I love that you can get them in such a variety- off the shoulder, with cut outs or a dramatic high collar.

DIY Iced Coffee

I don’t know about you guys, but I feel like I need a coffee IV in my body for 24/7 caffeine absorption. <- not at all dramatic.

One of my favorite things about the summer is iced coffee. To be honest, I live in Southern California sooooo iced coffee is almost a year-round necessity.

I can’t even tell you how much $$ I have spent at Starbucks over the years. I’d tried to make my own iced coffee the classic newbie way- making a cup of hot coffee and adding creamer and ice cubes in it. I’m sure you can guess how well that turned out- watery, bland and undrinkable.

So today I’m sharing my go-to easy iced coffee recipe!

Once you prep, it’s the easiest, quickest drink to make before you run out the door. And even the prep is simple, honestly. So let’s get  into it!

Summer Wedding Guest

Happy June babes! And with that, wedding season is upon us! I have 4 weddings (one down, three to go!) on my calendar this summer alone! I got off lucky with the first- I was a bridesmaid so my outfit was decided on months ago. As for the next three… ooh. Not so sure yet.

So obviously I’ve been on the hunt for some great pieces I can snag. If summer weddings – or honestly, any dressy summer parties in general- are on your agenda this year, check out these five fun and chic pieces!

ONE.  Shoulder Tie Lace Dress
Honestly for me, one of my fave things about clothing in general is fun sleeves! No matter what the season, I’m always down to have a unique sleeve moment. I think it just adds an extra element of chic to any look. That being said, I think this feminine tie sleeve dress is perfect for a wedding that’s more on the formal side!

Happy Monday!

This past weekend, I’ve been reflecting a lot on the power of positivity and gratitude in my life. I’ve always been a person who naturally looks on the bright side of things, whether things were going great or they were really crappy. I’m coming to realize what a gift that is, even though at times I can get caught up in self-pity and complaining, about big and little things..

But what good does that do? None. Who am I helping by complaining? No one. How is having a pity party for one going to help my situation? Not at all.

Hello 2017

Happy New Year, babes!

I hope you all had a fabulous (safe!) and fun night last night. I know I’ll definitely be home all day today recuperating for the week ahead.

I had a relatively low key NYE. We did have a baptism in the family in the morning (hence the dress). I got this dress suuuuper on sale last week and I love it! The high collar is so chic but I like how the rest of it flows in a flattering way. And this color is one of my faves for dresses. 

buuuut as much as I love the look, it quickly became leggings and a flannel once we got home and mixing margaritas. We had family over and had a blast!
