Pastels, Stripes and Spring

Thursday, April 17, 2014

Easter Sunday is a just a few days away and that means lots of family time!!  I have a huge family and every holiday, birthday party, or baby shower is over the top, which I love, and this weekend is no exception! Easter egg hunt for the kids, games, and plenty of food and treats to snack on throughout the entire day.  
If you're like me and will be running after a kid (in my case nieces and nephews) the whole day you'll probably want a simple easy spring outfit for the occasion.  Enter my current obsession, these blue and white striped pants, which I've been wearing with everything from flats, heels and wedges.  I've also added a bright top for a fun spring look!

I hope you have a happy Easter!  How do you plan on celebrating?

Congratulations to Jeremy Harris and his pup Jax for being announced San Diego's Most Stylish Man!

No better feeling than support from great friends!

What a great way to start this stylish event, atop the rooftop of the Porto Vista hotel at sunset.  The night was full of laughs, stylish men and women, new friends, amazing local boutiques showcasing the latest fashion trends, incredible photographers capturing every moment from the night, and beautiful models strutting down the runway in couture gowns!  I am incredibly honored to have been a part of such a fashionable event and to judge who would take the crown from last year's winner, Dean Hall (as you can tell it was hard work!)  All of these distinguished men had great style and qualities and it was truly hard to narrow it down, but we unanimously voted on Jeremy Harris to take the prize.  His head-to-toe GQ style won him the title of San Diego's Most Stylish Man!

Thank you to VixenArlene Ibarra and The Pulse for capturing such great photos. You can see more runway, men and fashionable pictures from the night by viewing their photo gallery's.  Thank you to everyone who came out and celebrated the Second Annual San Diego's Most Stylish Men!  See you next year!

How To Wear Boyfriend Jeans

Monday, April 14, 2014

Boyfriend jeans.  This style is meant to look like you borrowed a pair of jeans straight out of your boyfriends closet.  They should be a tad loose, worn in and ripped up (but not like they need to be tossed out in yesterday's trash).  How do you make loose fitting jeans look stylish and chic?  Here is my go-to guide to styling boyfriend jeans!
  1. Choose the right pair of jeans.  Just because they are called boyfriend jeans, doesn't necessarily mean you want to wear your significant others, the shape and cut will most likely be completely wrong for your body type.  Stick to the women's section and look for a pair that sit at your waist and aren't overly baggy.
  2. Cuff your jeans.  Most boyfriend jeans come cuffed already, if not, add your own cuff exposing some skin.  This adds a fun and exciting edge to this look.
  3. Wear a belt.  Whether your jeans need tightening or not adding a belt will pull your look together.  Make sure you stick with a color that goes with the rest of your outfit (brown with neutrals), a thicker belt is great for a daytime look.
  4. Tops.  If casual and relaxed is for you, a simple tank top or graphic tee works great.  If you're looking to dress your look up try a buttoned up sheer top and a fitted blazer.
  5. Shoes.  Heels are the simplest way to achieve an ultra chic and feminine look.  Whether they are opened toed, kitten heels, ankle strap heels or stilettos have fun with colors and patterns! 
Trying to decide what shoes and top to wear can make or break this look, but don't let that scare you off.  You might be surprised at how often you're reaching for your boyfriend jeans instead of your skinny jeans!  How do you like to style your boyfriend jeans?
