    Smocked Pinafore Dress

    DRESS: Free People  |  SANDALS: Walmart  |  T-SHIRT: H&M           I found this dress recently and knew I had to have it.  I love pinafore dresses and smocking individually, but together it’s extra special.  I’ve never seen a dress like this.  It just feels so unique.  I think I need to hem it a bit after looking back at these photos, but It’s still so cute.  I wore it today in Solvang, CA.  My family took a little drive to Solvang and spent a lot of the day there.  I feel like this dress fit right in.  I love to dress for the destination.  If you…

    Floral Print Mom Jeans

    JEANS: H&M  |  TOP: H&M  |  SNEAKERS: Puma  |  NECKLACE: Bauble Bar  |  BAG: Coach           I love these jeans! They are white floral mom jeans, if you can’t tell.  I needed jeans recently for work and could not pass these up.  They are from H&M.  While I am writing this post, they are still available in store.  I paired them with this cropped top, also from H&M.  I love the all white look.  I match my dog.  I got the top the day before I took these photos.  I have been seeing a lot of these tight cropped tops around lately and the style is…

    Floral Spring Top

    JEANS: H&M  |  TOP: Japan  |  BAG: Primark  |  SANDALS: Walmart           I was in need of some new tops that I can wear to work recently so I went shopping.  I found this floral sprig top at T.J. Maxx.  The brand is Japna.  It’s a little on the small side but it was only $12 and was on sale so I got it.  I’m so glad that I did because the back is super stretchy so it’s actually really comfortable.  I love the print as well.  It’s super bright and I always love florals.  Obviously it is spring so there is no better time to…

    The Getty Villa

    DRESS: Blu Pepper  |  SHOES: Lulu’s  |  BAG: Coach           Hello! It’s been a little while since I have written a blog post.  I got a new job and I’ve been really busy.  Two weeks ago me and my husband finally visited the Getty Villa for the first time.  I’ve been wanting to check it out since moving to L.A. over 4 years ago.  We have yet to visit the Getty Center, which is a different place.  Both are museums, but different types.  I loved seeing all of the old artifacts.  Some of them were so incredible and just shocking.  My favorite thing to see were…

    Midi Dress for Easter

    DRESS: Lulu’s  |  SANDALS: Walmart  |  SUNGLASSES: Glik’s  |  BAG: Coach            This year for Easter I wore this fun midi dress.  Even though it’s not pastel colored or floral it reminds me of spring.  It makes me think of a picnic blanket, because of the plaid.  I try to wear a dress every year for Easter.  If you are going to dress up for any holiday I feel like Easter is the best one to because spring to me says “pretty dress.”  I wore this dress last year for Thanksgiving as well.  It’s very versatile.  I got it from Lulu’s a while ago in the…

    Pink Midi Skirt from Blossom Brigade

      SKIRT: Blossom Brigade (custom)  |  T-SHIRT: Zara  |  SHOES: Lulu’s  |  BAG: Target  |  SUNGLASSES: Zero U.V.           I’ve been designing a lot of new clothing pieces lately for my Etsy shop and for myself.  I’ve decided that now is the time that I really want to start working toward having my own clothing label.  I’ve had my shop (Blossom Brigade) for about 6 years now, but hardly ever add new items to it.  Around 5-6 years ago I was making some progress but then I put it on the back burner when I moved to California because I wanted to pursue designing for a…

    The Huntington Library and Gardens

      DRESS: Blu Pepper  |  BOOTS: Circus by Sam Edelman  |  SUNGLASSES: Glik’s           Today I went to the Huntington Library and Gardens for a late birthday celebration.  I was planning to go on my birthday weekend but it was closed for some reason.  We went to Big Bear instead.  I still wanted to go to the botanical gardens because I went a year ago and loved it.  I have been wanting to return ever since.  I’m sure you know by now I am a huge garden lover and this one is massive.  If you like gardens too, you should check it out.      …

    Day Trip to Big Bear Lake

    SWEATER: T.J.Maxx  |  JEANS: H&M  |  SHOES: Puma  |  BAG: Coach           My birthday was this past weekend and I went to Big Bear for the day on Saturday.   I wanted to celebrate and see some fall leaves, since LA obviously doesn’t have many.  I think we have gone to Big Bear in the fall every year since living here.  I really miss changing leaves.  I can’t say I’m a fan of southern California autumns.  I chose to go to Big Bear because I didn’t want to go too late and miss the peak leaf time (which we kind of missed anyway).  I was planning…

    Tiered Midi Dress

    DRESS: T.J. Maxx  |  BAG: Coach  |  SUNGLASSES: Glik’s  |  SHOES: Lulu’s           I have always had a love/hate relationship with midi dresses.  I like how they look on other people and think they are comfortable but have never really felt confident wearing them.  I think it’s because i’m on shorter side (5’2″) and they cut me in a strange spot.  I also have larger calves and I feel like they accentuate that.  I’ve recently realized that I like midi dresses that are on the longer side.  They hit somewhere between the upper calf and ankle.  This one isn’t necessarily the length that is my favorite.…

    iPhone SE Test Photos

    DRESS: Urban Outfitters  |   SANDALS: Target  |   BAG: Coach           Happy Sunday! This weekend I stopped by the Korean Bell of Friendship in LA and wanted to test out the camera on my new phone.  I got the newer iPhone SE on Saturday.  I previously had the first SE but it was starting to act up and already had the screen replaced.  I really needed an upgrade because I had that phone for over 5 years.  There are many reasons why I chose to go with the SE but I’m not going to go into all of them.  I am pretty happy with how…
