Turquoise Tribal Tunic

Tribal prints never get old as far as I am concerned and this turquoise tribal tunic is no exception. I especially love that this one can be paired with jeans or leggings… versatility that will make it a nice fall staple to pair with cozy layers. I paired it here with a fun black felt hat and slipped on moccasins in lieu of heels since we were going to be doing a lot of walking that day. The extra details on this top were what sold me on it: unfinished hem, back cutout, cinched waist…it’s all in the details!

Another Floral Maxi

August 25th, 2014

another floral maxi 3

At the same time that I purchased this floral maxi dress, I purchased another floral maxi. They were both too good to pass up and I can always use a good maxi dress. I actually wore this for the first time back on my birthday in July, but have worn it another time since. The slit adds a bit of va va voom while the shape and pattern keep the dress demure and lovely. I will definitely be wearing this dress until the fall chill gets too cold. This one doesn’t lend to layering very well without looking frumpy, so it is definitely a spring/summer staple. Thank god for Indian summers so I can get more use out of this!

Simple Summer Dress

August 6th, 2014

When the unbearable heat rolls around, there is nothing I feel like putting on more than a simple summer dress. Messing with buttons or zippers usually sounds like hell and I wait all year long to break out my summer dresses! This dress was my go-to a few weeks ago when I felt like everything I put on just made my tiny bump look like bloat. I am currently in (feeling like I am almost out of) that awkward stage of pregnancy where the bump just looks like bloat and not a full on baby bump. The empire waist on this dress was definitely working in my favor. It has been a little challenging navigating through my closet to see what still fits before I make the jump and buy bigger clothes. I will try and milk it as long as I can!

Bells and Muscle Tees

July 23rd, 2014

Muscle tees are still all the rage it seems, and there is nothing I like more than a good muscle tee than bells and muscle tees. Still obsessing over my Novella Royale bells (I got another color too), I couldn’t wait to pair the two trends together. I wore this look a few months ago but just haven’t posted because I am a slacker! There is currently a gigantic hole in our backyard right by where I am standing in this photo since our renovation/addition has started. I promise to share some before and after pictures of the project.

Anyhoo – I love this outfit so much, I think I absolutely must wear it again soon. Are you still loving the muscle tee trend?

Maximum Floral

July 15th, 2014

floral maxi 1

I adore maxi dresses and when you add in a big floral pattern, I love them even more. I scooped up this floral maxi dress on major sale at Urban Outfitters over a month ago and finally got around to wearing it recently. With the morning all day sickness, there hasn’t been much of anything except for pajamas in my life lately until just recently. I wore this out with simple studded flats for a trip to grab some ice cream the other weekend. It has been sweltering lately in Walnut Creek and this dress is the perfect, breezy staple that is just so easy to throw on and go. Gaston clearly agrees.
