Pink is the New Black: Structured Blazer and Hearts

Wearing: Blazer: Zara (here, similar here and LOVE this one here) Blouse: J. Crew (similar here) Bottom: Banana Republic (old, similar here and a bit more of a splurge here) Shoes: Pour La Victoire (in Red here and adore these similar ones here) Accessories: Jewelmint earrings, Citizen Mod ring and necklace Clutch: Saint Laurent

As someone who likes all things feminine, you can imagine how excited I am that the pink color trend will be very popular this upcoming season! I won’t embarrass myself with photos of how pink my room was when I was younger, but you can picture it as a pink explosion of some sort. :) I don’t think pink is actually even considered all that “feminine” anymore since if you recall in the last few years, pink has been deemed as the new black several times. Pink is not only worn by the ladies but men also wear the color loud and proud. Personally, I think it’s quite attractive (in moderation)!

This outfit is a perfect example of one that I would wear on days that I need to make a quick transition from work to a weekday casual date night. Since I typically don’t have much time to get ready before dinner, I simply switch my slacks into a pair of skinny jeans, slip on a pair of high(er) heels and out the door I go! In my opinion, you can never go wrong with a structured blazer, skinny jeans and some heels to make you feel refined, polished and a dose of sexy. ;)

I hope everyone is having a wonderful week. Stay tuned for a fun giveaway next week!

Top: Zara (old, loving this one for Fall), Bottom: Trouve via Nordstroms (simliar here), Shoes: Sole Society (here), Accessories: Random belt (simliar here), J.Crew link bracelet, Etsy rings, Clutch: Saint Laurent (here)

I must admit, I’m a huge fan of pleats. Give me an outfit that involves pleats, and I’ll most likely love it. Now, add some leather to the mix, it’s love at first sight. I really don’t think you can go wrong with a leather pleated skirt in a neutral color like cream or beige. It’s so easy to pair with other items, and I love that it’s thick enough to wear in the winter with some tights and a cute coat!

I’ve slowly but surely accepted the fact that summer is pretty much over by now, so I’m already getting myself in the Fall (fashion) mindset, as you can see from today’s outfit. I love neutral earthy tones for the Fall, I guess it reminds me of the changing of the leaves (not that we have much of that here in sunny California) but it sure does call for some great outfit insprations! :)

By the time you’re reading this, I’ll be in Paris! <3 Hoping for some reliable internet connection so I can post pics!

Happy Friday and have a great weekend!

Twirl: Striped A-Line Denim Dress
Twirl: Striped A-Line Denim Dress

Happy Monday! Did everyone have a good weekend?

This fun dress made me feel like quite the girly girl, and I just wanted to twirl around in it all day. It’s made from a perfectly stretch denim so the comfort level was more than ideal taking me from day to night. I have no doubt that you’ll see me wearing this dress again in the Fall with a cropped trench, lightweight scarf and some ankle booties!

I’m so in love with these new D’Orsay flats. Got them just in time for my upcoming trip to Paris, and I can’t wait to take them on some romantic strolls along the river in the City of Light! :)
