Flare and Florals

 FLORAL FLARE DRESS: Morning Lavender c/o // FLOPPY HAT(similar): Nordstrom // NUDE WEDGES: Nordstrom// TOURTISE OVERSIZED SUNNIES: Morning Lavender c/o

This past weekend one of my best friends got married to the most amazing man. They are literally Barbie and Ken in the flesh. Their wedding was so blissful and enchanting.... and HOT! July weddings in San Diego are always beautiful, but they tend to really promote the glistening look, therefore, less is more when picking a dress. I wore this lovely dress and it was perfect! I love this Morning Lavender dress because its bright and happy with a little touch of sexy with the peek-a-boo opening. Plus, the flare fit is so comfortable! There's nothing worse than wearing a form fitting dress to a wedding where you can't even eat without a serious food baby appearing. Wearing a dress that is form fitting on top, like off the shoulder/crisscross, and flared at the bottom will allow you to still get a sexy look while remaining comfortable throughout the night!

Ok, this romper is literally EVERYTHING!

 I never understood why people used that phrase, until now. Another show stopper from Morning Lavender... Im not kidding, their clothing is so amazing. I love this romper because the colors are so pretty and the off the shoulder flare adds the perfect flirty touch. With this crazyyyyy weather we are having in San Diego lately, I thought this breezy floral look would be perfect to help beat the heat in style :)

If you guys love this romper as much as I do, leave me a comment below!! Im heading off to bed, but will be working on a fun post about my Fourth of July adventure later this week, can't wait to share!

I'm heading up to LA for a bunch of meetings today but I wanted to share one of my new favorite looks that I shot the other day! I can't tell you how much I love this dress and cardi combo. I shot this look with my friends at Morning Lavender a few weeks ago and I am still obsessed with it! It is super feminine and flirty with just enough structure to the dress. I love cozying up in big oversized sweaters, even though I may look homeless, they are so comfy! Morning Lavender is a super cute online women's clothing boutique with A TON of amazing items. Like seriously, their stuff is so cute! 

I hope you are all having an amazing day! If you're bored at work or school and want to peruse their site, check them out here! 



Summer Weekend Getaway Essentials

After several weekend trips (and the every other weekend commute to LA to visit my boyfriend) I discovered my love for mini weekend getaways. My friends at Evite, along with the ever so amazing Sally Hansen, have put together the perfect list of weekend getaway essentials! I figured I'd put their list to the test this last weekend so I could share a few of my favorites from their line up with you as well!  

I can't wait to try this one out! It's a 2 in 1 bronzer and self tanning lotion that gives you that airbrushed look, but naturally! The best part is, it's waterproof! I have used their Airbrush Legs aerosol spray that is AMAZING, so I can't wait to give this one a whirl. Sally Hansen tanning products have always given me confidence to use them before the beach without worrying that they will be dripping off as I walk out of the water haha.

2. A Summer Romper or Dress
Next up on their getaway essentials list is a summery dress or romper. Like most of you, I am romper obsessed! I try my hardest to pack light on weekend trips, so I usually bring a colorful maxi dress/romper and a plain neutral or black one so that I can mix and match different jackets or jewelry pieces to make it feel like a different outfit (even if its been worn on the trip already;-)

3. The Perfect Pair of Sunnies
 There really isn't anything worse than getting to a sunny destination and realizing you don't have your sunglasses! 

 4. Beach Bag or Phone Case and Wallet in One
I totally agree with Evite that if you're the type of packer who needs 15 different items for the beach 
(I may be like that at times... ;-) you should totally pack a beach bag like this one for your trip. If you like to travel light then check out these adorable phone cases with a stylish built in picket to hold your ID and credit cards. 

5. Bikini Top and Bottom
 Don't be intimidated to pack that itsy bitsy bikini! Tanner bodies always look skinnier than pale pasty ones ;) I ALWAYS use a self tanner before I leave for a trip where I will be strutting around in a bikini. If you pack your bikini just don't forget your Airbrush Sun!

6. Sandals or Wedges...or Both!
One of the last things on Evite's list was a pair of your favorite sandals. I always want to make sure I pack comfortable shoes for my mini weekend getaways. I will admit I am fully obsessed with my faux Birkenstocks... to all the haters out there, they have made a comeback and you should really give them a try ;-) I also love having a comfy pair of wedges on hand in the event that a night on the town spontaneously happens. 

In the event that you're planning the weekend getaway for you and all your friends, check out these amazing invitations from Evite, seriously so cute!!
