Mustard Yellow

Happy hump day, friends! I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend with family and friends and are well hydrated, ha! As for us, we attended a bbq/block party at our neighborhood (lot's of food and wine - #thestruggleisreal) and ended the weekend at Aquatica water park to kick-off the summer, which was so much fun! We just wished it wasn't so chilly outside. Not sure what's going on with San Diego weather but we are in need of warmer temperatures, like ASAP! But in the mean time, I'll enjoy a little spring layer. 

Now, can we talk about mustard yellow being the 'IT' color for spring?! LOVE! I typically wear this color in the fall but when I stopped at Francesca's a couple of weeks ago, I couldn't help and look through the beautiful pieces they had in this color - from shoes, to earrings, name it, they have it.  Again, chilly temps call for light layering, so I paired my top with a long light vest and white jeans because this color combo works perfectly for spring and summer.  For our bbq/block party, I wore the same top with distressed denim shorts and white sandals for a casual look. Below I share a couple of my favorite mustard yellow pieces.

White Floral Dress

You can never go wrong with a floral dress, simple as that! Especially, if the dress is fitted at the top with a defined waist and flared at the bottom - my kind of style. Not to mention, its lightweight, cute, comfy and will work for any occasion. I wore it at a blogger event this weekend and plan on taking it to our summer trip next month. I paired it with my go-to espadrilles sandals but will totally work with flat sandals for the warmer days.

Block Heel Mules

When dressing to the office, I always like to have fun with my looks but still feel comfortable through out the day. I am consistently going up and down the stairs and sometimes walking from one building to another so wearing the right shoes is a must - hence, my love for flats! However, you can never say no to a good pair of block heel mules. It's the perfect block heel to own - not too dressy, but still cute to make a statement. I love pairing them with a pencil skirt or a dress to the office…style tip: choose one piece and make it your focal point - hence, why I kept my accessories at a minimum.

What about you? Are you a flats or heels kind of gal?

What to wear to a wedding

It's wedding season and you're looking forward to attending that special someone's nuptials but have no clue what to wear for the occasion…I know, we've all been there. However, I'm a big believer in comfort (and cheap) while staying on trend - that's why floral will never go out of style. We are in spring, so going with pastel colors or floral prints is a great start on what to wear to a wedding but just remember, you want to look put together and not over shadow the bride, you know what I mean? So, whether your preference is a dress, jumpsuit, or pant suit, if it looks good and feels right for the event, go for it! Below I'm sharing some of my floral dresses under $75 for a wedding.

White Jeans for Spring

Today is a good day! We're celebrating our 7th year wedding anniversary. We decided to take the day off from work, we're dropping Emily off at daycare and we plan on spending the day together celebrating us. I'm not sure what all he has planned for the day but I'll make sure I'm dressed for the part. Typically, for our anniversary I go for a dress and heels but this time around, I knew I wanted something different. Luckily, these white jeans arrived just in time for the occasion. What I love about them is the high waist, super-stretch material and how it sits right at my ankle. I can style them up or down with out doing to much to the look - They are the perfect bottoms for spring and summer! FYI, I would size up one or two sizes because they do run small. Other than that, I'm in love!

Mother's Day Gift Ideas 2018

Can you believe Mother's Day is next month?! Time is flying by so fast that I just can't keep up with the days anymore, but you know what? Mother's Day should be celebrated everyday; for sure. When you are spending the majority of your time changing diapers and not to mention, chasing a  little two year old human everywhere, I swear it's like having a relationship with an unstable person, haha! The struggle is real my friends...but listen, all we want is a day at the spa or night a hotel room to catch up on some Z's…for real, but we all know that may not happen, so momma will settle with any of the items listed below, win-win!

Jumpsuits for Spring

There are so many spring trends to try, but one trend I've kept my eye on is the jumpsuit. This one-piece staple is perfect for those days you just want to throw something on without trying so hard but yet, look put together - It's the perfect alternative for dresses and separates, especially for those warmer days. Jumpsuits are great to wear on a vacation trip (not to mention, lightweight and easy to pack!), happy hour with friends, or even a wedding - You can pair it with your favorite heels or espadrilles sandals and you're ready for the day! I've rounded some of my favorites below which are all under $50.

How To Style Bermuda Shorts

Doing something a little different today, I'm sharing two looks in one post, just because! But first, let's get the question out-of-the-way - how does one style knee-length shorts, aka 'Bermuda Shorts' for spring and summer? Here's how...because I want a comfy and flattering look, I focused on the top and shoes, and went with the fitted knee-length shorts. For me, this is the easiest to style because you can go with a blouse, button down, or a tie knot. Not a fan of the fitted style? You can also rock this trend with boyfriend Bermuda shorts (oversized and distressed) and again...the key is to look put together and pretty! So if you're over it wearing long skinny jeans and short denim shorts for the warmer months, this trend is one you must try!

Spring Dress

Happy Hump Day! If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen in the beginning of the month I had mentioned, I was on the hunt for new dresses - flowy and casual comfort. Well,  I did just that! Now that the warm weather is finally here, there are many adorable dresses available to shop for. Especially, this Stripe Sweetheart Skater Dress which is on sale for less than $21! I love how comfortable it is and breathable - plus, it's a stripe dress, so it's a double yes in my book. While you can style the dress without a jacket, I opted for layer because I felt more comfortable with a little more coverage. To top of the look, I paired it with my favorite espadrilles sandals from last year which I can't get enough of.

Blouses for Spring and Summer

When I'm on the hunt for new blouses, I want to make sure I can wear it at the workplace, as well as an off day. If I were to wear this top to the office, I would pair it with a fitted skirt and mule sandals for a business casual look. Now, for my off day look, this is exactly how I would wear it - cute, chic, but comfy. Some of my favorite go-to blouses are prints, ruffles, and peplum style. So, if you are looking for new blouses for spring and summer, I've shared a couple below under $50 that will work perfectly for the office or a weekend look.

Baring off sleeves during spring and summer will never go out of style. It’s such a cute an easy trend to pull off that you’ll be wanting to wear more of; especially, if it’s styled in different ways. One way I love to wear off the shoulder dress is by pairing it with a skirt and a cute pair of sandals for a cool casual look...but can we talk about  how adorable these espadrilles are?!...I mean. The "IT" spring shoe to have, without a doubt. What are some of your favorite ways to wear an off the shoulder dress?
