As soon as I heard that first drop of rain I instantly smiled to myself...Fall you have arrived!!!  Then I ran straight to my closet and grabbed a pair of boots because I couldn't wait to wear them with this dress!!  If you know me you know I'm all about a great boho chic look.  What does that mean?  Think loose fitting, flowy sleeves, dainty details like the one on the sleeves and hem paired with an oversized wool hat, booties and a layered necklaces.  Pretty simple and right up my alley.  Are you a fan of the boho chic style?

Ok, so I'm pretty excited to be heading to Seattle and Vancouver today!!  It will be my first trip to Canada and I'm pretty stoked!  Have you been?  If so, I'd love to know places I have to check out!!
You can also follow my trip on Instagram!! xoxo

Fall Trends On A Budget

Tuesday, August 25, 2015

Shopping on a budget.  It’s not as hard as you think!  Last weekend I was invited by Fashion Week San Diego to be a part of the Style Soiree at Grossmont Center.  Allison Andrews, the founder of Fashion Week San Diego, asked me and a couple other San Diego bloggers to put together Fall looks from participating stores in the mall with a budget of $75.  I was lucky enough to get one of my favorite stores…Target!!  I’m there all the time so this just worked out perfectly for me!  Spending $75 on an outfit wasn’t the challenging part, trying not to wonder down every aisle and focus on the task at hand was my real challenge.  I can’t help it, I love Target and I could literally spend all day there!

When it came time to put together a Fall look, I immediately gravitated towards this long knit sweater vest!  From there I decided my outfit would have a 70’s boho chic vibe and found a great pair of wide leg jeans in a dark denim, a chambray top and this gorgeous silver and turquoise belt.  (Online it says $19.99 but for whatever reason it was $6.00 in store!)  My grand total at checkout $76.00…I may have gone over $1.00 but it was totally worth it.  I wanted to find an outfit that fit my personal style, that I would wear again and can be worn with other items in my closet.  I already have so many outfits in mind with the knit vest!!

At the Style Soiree my fellow blogger babes and myself shared our Fall looks and gave tips on the latest trends you can expect to see in the next month.  The color marsala is huge with clothing and also beauty products (nails and lips!)  Also flared jeans, layers, furs (faux of course), white on white and chunky necklaces, to name a few.  After our panel came the runway show.  The models killed it, as usual, while showcasing more Fall trends from Grossmont Center stores.  

I had such a great time catching up with everyone who attended, talking fashion and sharing my hair product for the first time in public!  I can't wait for the runway shows at Fashion Week San Diego the first week of October.  Have you gotten your tickets yet?  They're selling out fast!!  Hope to see you there! 

Here are a few more photos from the event.  Enjoy!!

Going With The Flow

Monday, August 24, 2015

I've been talking a lot about Fall lately however, it's still Summer, as this heat wave keeps reminding me!!  With that said, let's talk summer dresses!!  How gorgeous is this blue flowy dress from Chicwish?!  I can't tell you how much I love the pattern, color and the way it moves when you walk.  The best part, when Fall does kick in to high gear I'll be able to toss on a chic moto jacket and a pair of booties for an edgy twist!  

If you're going crazy trying to find a dress for an upcoming wedding, end of summer get together or really any occasion that doesn't require jeans I'd highly recommend a maxi dress.  Preferably one in a fun bold color for that wow factor.  Maxi dresses look great on all body types and don't require a lot of thought, just add some accessories and you're ready to party!
