Bright Mornings & Long Days

I have officially put these pieces into rotation for the summer. I guess we can call these my Summer Essentials:

1. A Summer Scarf 2. Oversized Sunnies 3. Coach purse (Madison) 4. Ankle boots  5. Floppy hat

The days are much longer now and the bright mornings are filled with the music of a million birds. Perfect day to enjoy a romantic summer afternoon picnic.

Working up on a fun little giveaway for my lovely readers and followers. <3

Hope you have a lovely day darlins’!

Keep It Simple

HAPPY MONDAY darlins’….must confess im still in a little haze of happiness from this past weekend.  A luxurious and lovely Summer weekend it was…spent most of my weekend in linen & one piece dresses.  Pretty much relayed on this Scarf to protect me from the unpredictable bay area weather.

When packing for mini weekend get aways…I have learned to pack quite lightly & rotate items.

Here are my Packing Necessities:

1. Oversized Sunnies 2. Loose casual tank I can pair with anything 3. Shorts 4. Jeans 5. Oversized Cardigan 6. One piece dress 7. Ankle boots (seriously can pair these up with anything!) 8. A pair of heels (just in case we decide to go go out somewhere fancy!) 9. A weekend Purse- This Coach purse (Madison) is absolutely the perfect size to fit all necessities needed while traveling! 10. Accessories- I tend to keep the clothing minimal and bring  tons of accessories I can mix  & match with.

KEEP IT SIMPLE & BECOME A MASTER AT ACCESSORIZING!

Long leisurely walks in Napa Valley with the family and  holding hands with my love watching the sunset on the cliff of Santa Barbara. I’ve learned that sometimes we need to slow down to savor every moment and connect with the ones we love most.

But for now it’s back to reality….Will be working on a project & styling my dear friend Lisa Ling today and will be finalizing details on launching my channel by this week! Cant wait to show you guys our first tutorial we filmed…its pretty Ahhhh-mazing! Hope your week is off to a perfect start!

Lets Get Away

…… and a much needed time away from the city starts now. My weekend carryalls are packed and ready to head out to the lush green countryside. Heading up to Napa Valley for the weekend with the family to enjoy the blossoms and butterflies, champagne picnics filled with warm laughter and cozy conversations, and of course to wine & dine my beloved daddy for Fathers Day! and yes we will be scouting for a dreamy, magical, & romantic location for The Wedding this weekend with the whole family! A glimmer of vintage, deep green leaves, & the air filled with a dreamy and magical light……This is how I imagine it to be.

HAPPY FRIDAY darlins’…wishing you all a lovely weekend! and oh..just out of curiosity….where would YOUR dream/fantasy wedding be? In need of some inspiration ladies :)

Being Whisked Away

Summer is officially in full bloom …and you know what that means! It means Being Whisked Away in flowing chiffon dresses & short shorts! Spent the day yesterday with Michelle Phan in Palm Springs shooting something very very special. Special as in my very first youtube video…we will officially be launching my fashion channel!

Heres a little preview on one of the looks. Can you guys take a guess what it is about???

When I say Red..You Say Leopard…

I’ve always been a steadfast believer in the notion that it’s always better to be over-dressed than under. Red & green reminds us of christmas, black & orange reminds us of Halloween, and when I see red leather I think of leopard. (Don’t ask why..I just do!) Paired up this impossibly cool red boyfriend blazer with my red leather mini. Red on Red is quite a bold fashion statement …make sure you break up all the redness in between with a neutral color belt or a strong pattern (such as leopard).

Will be filming a fun tutorial today out in Palm Spring with Michelle Phan…oh boy are we ready to burn. Heard it will be 107 degrees out there! Wish us luck! Have a lovely day darlins’
