Flouncy in Floral

Who’s ready for the weekend, raise your hand?! I’m raising mine in case you thought otherwise 🙂

This week, I sat down and looked at some old photos from my modeling days and in the past in general. It’s amazing to see how my style has changed and grown with me! No joke, I refused to wear pants until I was in the first grade. And even then, they were those silly colorful, patterned leggings with a quirky top. In high school and college, I was totally that girl wearing the Hollister skirts that were basically the length of a belt (thanks for the phrase, dad!). My hair was bleached like crazy and I often wore extensions. If I didn’t have a full face of makeup on, I wasn’t leaving the house. I was so extra, yet so basic. Then a few years ago, it was all about black jeans, black tank, black combat boots, and a leather jacket…shave my head and I legit could’ve been confused for a teenage boy! Granted I was living in New York and that was pretty much the “it” outfit for models, it was just so, blah. Now, I’ve finally realized that less is more, and your style truly does reflect you and how people perceive you. That’s where this dress comes in…

Honestly, how good is this?! I’m seriously obsessed! I’m literally showing zero skin and I still feel beyond sexy and confident. It’s perfect for work, happy hour, date night, a wedding, etc. If you love this dress as much as I do, you can find it here at ANOUVO. They have tons of other cute pieces as well! Ruffles and floral print has been the main trend this summer too, so it just gets better and better. I’ll link some of my other favorite under $150 flouncy dresses below to check out too!

As for now, it’s time toss on a pair of heels and hit the town! What’s everyone else doing this weekend?!

Until next time…stay golden!

Goldielegs in Wonderland

“I knew who I was this morning, but I’ve changed a few times since then.” – Alice in Wonderland

Today I need to give a shoutout and thank you to Walter Baker! Without him and without this ensemble, I’m not sure I’d ever feel like a modernized blend of Cinderella and Alice in Wonderland. This baby blue co-ord outfit is absolutely perfect for a hot day, and is also something I can wear anywhere. It’s a silk blend with crocheted sleeves and back, allowing that nice breeze in to cool you off. And we all know how much I love outfits that are great for twirling!

For this particular look, I wanted to dress it up a bit, as I was heading out to meet up with some girlfriends for a rooftop Sunday funday. So I tucked the top in and bloused it a bit, slipped into my favorite Nine West ‘Baebee’ sandals, and added a dainty pair of earrings and bracelet. My earrings are from Charming Charlie (and they were such a steal!), while my bracelet is from White House Black Market (not a steal, but I’m obsessed with it). Another way I like to wear this if I’m not wanting to get as dolled up is simply by untucking the shirt and pairing it with a low-top sneaker. It’s comfortable, but still keeps me looking put together!

This set is no longer available, but I’ve linked Walter Baker HERE and also added in some of my other favorite two piece sets below. Be sure to check them all out because they will be your summer go-to!

Until next time…stay golden!

Stars & Pom Poms

Mesh, sequin stars, AND multi-colored pom poms…it doesn’t get much better!

If you’ve been following along, you know I most always go with a minimalist style. There’s something about clean, crisp clothing that creates a polished look, regardless of what you’re actually wearing. I honestly think that’s how I get away with half of the things I wear!

While attending the Revolve sample sale a few weeks ago, I came across this appliqued mesh tee by MINKPINK and feel in love. It actually came with a white bodysuit to go under, as it’s supposed to be a dress. However, I’m 5’11, so…..yea. I wasn’t going to not buy it simply because it didn’t cover my booty. Like most clothing, I just needed to make it work for me! While choosing what to wear it with, I found an old white H&M crop top that went perfectly under it. Then I threw on my favorite white Calvin Klein skinnies and added my black faux leather Zara moto jacket and Steve Madden sneakers to accentuate the black sticthing on the stars. The finishing touch, and what really tied the look together, were my colorful pom pom earrings from Baublebar! It was the perfect splash of color (along with a hot pink lip!) to make this a stand out outfit.

Spice Up Your Weekend

 

After a long week, there’s only one thing left to say…TGIF!!! You did it!

Last week I was graciously invited to the Apart Show in Downtown Los Angeles for fashion week. There, a showroom full of ready to wear pieces straight from Milan Fashion Week, awaited each on of us fashion enthusiasts. Not only were were able to see everything up close and personal, but we were able to play dress up and try things on. I fell head over heels for these high waisted culottes, that I couldn’t resist showing them off!

For this outfit, these culottes are quite the statement themselves, so a simple top would keep the attention where it needed to be. However, I was feeling inspired after walking through Dolce & Gabbanna a couple weeks back, and felt this printed half top from Express created a really nice daytime Spanish-influenced look. The floral print adds structure and a colorful touch, where the pants add depth and texture. I threw on my favorite pair of nude BCBG pumps and a floral French Connection bag, and called it a day! If you’re looking for some inspo to add some flavor and spice things up this weekend, try out this ensemble!

Velvet Cowgirl

Velvet has been all the rage as of late, and it doesn’t seem to be going away any time soon. I’m totally okay with it though because it’s a great material for the colder seasons. It also makes any casual outfit way more glamorous! I knew I should have saved my old velvet leotards from my competitive dance days…oh well, it gave me a reason to buy this super cute flared Free People jacket.

What I love most about this jacket is the detailing. From the bronze buttons to the asymmetrical zipper to the flared bottom, this jacket has it all and can be worn with so many different pieces. I decided to keep it simple though because with a statement jacket, all you REALLY need are a good pair of jeans, a nice white tee, and – cute pair of heeled booties to tie it all together!

Until next time…stay golden!
