Just Peachy.

August 14, 2014.

West Hollywood, CA.

For the home stretch of summer, I am breaking out some of my sunniest paisley and floral printed shorts.  August is so wonderful because it’s the month that opens the door for us to begin to play with fall fashion trends, but it still encourages the wearing of the whites and brights that summer calls for.  Choosing a vibrant print, similar to the ones I have on here, as the focal point of the outfit, is easy this season because the options are endless: florals, abstract graphics, tropical, polka-dot-you name it it’s out there!

I paired these silky Forever21shorts with a woven peach tank, also from Forever21.  It adds just the right amount of texture to the outfit and I kept my accessories simple.  If you’re looking to snag some last minute steals, I have picked out some more of my favorite printed shorts below- all for under $50!

Long Weekend & Light Colors.

Ah yes, it’s MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND!! And that means that we get an extra day to sleep in and avoid the office grind and that is something we can all be excited about, right? BBQ’s, beach days, pool parties, and little weekend getaways are all in order over the next couple of days.  I am headed to a black tie wedding tomorrow, which is sure to be both fancy and fun.   Despite the fact that I stressed a bit about what to wear, I've always thought black tie weddings are really beautiful.  Everyone looks their best, including the happy couple, and it just adds to the elegance of the day.  Eric is a bit of a dancer at weddings and so I’m already preparing myself for the endless amounts of dancing that I’m likely to get into tomorrow night.  I can't wait!

I decided to change it up today with some milkmaid braids (my first attempt at doing them).  They were actually not as hard as I thought, though they definitely could use a little work (maybe my next few attempts will have less flyways!)  Pastels just brighten everything up and I figured this outfit was perfectly airy and fun for a weekend of spring festivities.  I paired the look with some cutout heels from Ruche, giving it a bit of a dressed-up look, perfect for a nice brunch but you can certainly throw on some flats to dress this down for a daytime BBQ.  I’m not sure if it was because I had my hair up or because of the flowy skirt/tight top combo felt similar to a leotard and ballet skirt, but I got back into my old roots a bit and felt like a dancer again today!

I’ve included all of these pieces below and also some similar looks as well.  The best part about this look is that the whole thing is under $100 AND since it’s memorial day, all of these stores are having great sales so head over to the site this weekend and you can get this look for even less!

Have a happy and safe holiday!

Floral Leggings.

Well, something unimaginable has happened… floral leggings have become fashionable again (remember these from the 80’s, Full House  oh yeah and kindergarten photos?) and I could not be more excited!  Not only are they as comfortable as pajamas, but you can dress them up as much or as little as you want.  I added these pastel blue sandals from Lulu’s with a good medium sized heel (I am not a huge fan of super high heels these days) to style this look up a bit but you could easily throw on flats or tennis shoes and make this look something a lot more casual.  Either way, you will be perfectly ready for a spring day (and more comfortable than you could’ve dreamed) in these leggings!

Today I paired my floral leggings with this ivory scalloped crop top- both from Urban Peach.  I love the detail in this lightweight tank!  Everything at Urban Peach is 50% off right now so head over to their site to take advantage if you haven’t already- their stuff is adorable!  Oh and to complete my look I added some accessories from Forever21.  Little white flower earrings and a chunky navy statement necklace- who said you can have too much floral this season?  Certainly not me!
