Double Denim

Denim Vest: Gap | Tank: American Apparel | Flats: Nature Breeze (Similar here) | Necklace: Brandy Melville | Sunnies and Gold Bracelet: F21| Bag: Tory Burch | Watch: Michael Kors | Pink Bracelet: J Crew

I’m back! I had the most amazing time in New York!!! I am seriously considering movie there…or at least being bi-coastal hahaha. There is so much to do and see there. It makes LA seem so boring! I can’t wait to share my pictures with you guys.

There were so many fashionable girls there wearing a lot of casual looks and tons of denim which inspired this outfit. The girls there are so much different than LA girls… so much more casual, less make up and a more relaxed, thrown together last minute looks. Definitely not what I expected. I might have been the only girl wearing heels a couple of the nights. It was crazy! But kinda refreshing to actually see a girl’s face instead of her caked on makeup.

Hope you all had a fabulous week. Blogging is definitely time consuming as I’m sure you all know but I’m so excited to jump back in it after my short break. So stay tuned!

Hot and Cold

Sweater: Victoria's Secret | Shorts and Sunnies: F21 | Wedges: Urban Outfitters | Bag: Brandy Melville

Wow I was dying in this sweater yesterday...wayyy too hot. But it's always so freezing in my office! Oh the challenges of life. I originally ordered this sweater from Vicky's Secret online for my sister for Christmas but she wasn't a big fan so I re-gifted it to myself without her permission... she never even noticed and she was the one taking these pics. Wow. 

Anyway, I cannot believe Sean got kicked off the Bachelorette this week. I think I'm in love with him and will definitely be trying out for his season of the Bachelor if there ever is one. No, I'm not kidding. Watch out girls.

As I'm sure you know by now, I love pairing baggy sweaters with skirts or shorts. This is an older sweater from the good old Brandy Melville. So cozy. I might have to retire it until the fall though since it's so hot these days! 

Two more days until NY!!!!! I'm already having anxiety about packing...have I said that already??

This past weekend was spent with a very special friend of mine celebrating her bachelorette party. We braved the heat in Scottsdale, AZ all weekend at this beautiful mansion fully equipped with tennis courts, a huge salt water pool, a guest house bigger than my house now, and a life-size card board cut out of Justin Bieber. We did the typical bachelorette thing of wearing all black and having the bride wear white so I thought it would be a great opportunity to bring out my new spiked imitation Jeffrey Campbells (they were only $50!) to show a little uniqueness from the pack. It took me 20 minutes to get through airport security with these suckers… I could have seriously injured someone or blown up the plane with what they let me bring on… these shoes, my spiked bracelet, a razor and a bottle of face wash. I guess I have a trusting face. It was a great time hanging at the mansion with the Biebs but let’s just say I don’t want to drink for a very long time.

Hope everyone had a good fourth! I had been wanting to get a floral summer dress so badly for NY. This one was exactly what I was looking for and was only $39 at Brandy. They have tons of other prints too. I figured it would be so easy to walk around in all day in the NY heat. And by the way... I can't even thank Brianna my little photog enough for the amazing pictures she's been taking for me!

Packing tonight for a weekend in AZ! It's going to be an extremely fun weekend celebrating my friend Renee's bachelorette party! I'm crossing my fingers that Magic Mike shows up to do a dance for us...

Blueberry delight

Dress: LF (sale) | Heels: Zara | Beacelets: Brandy Melville, Urban Outfitters | Watch: Michael Kors

In the spirit of the 4th of July I decided to pull out my pretty blue dress. I absolutely love this color and how well the dress moves. I got it at one of LF's huge blowout sales for only $25 (Honestly, who could afford anything from there when they aren't having a sale?) And the pockets are just the sprinkles on top of my outfit of the day cupcake!

What are you guys doing for the fourth? I die for fireworks so all I care about is being by the pool all day with a skinny girl margarita and finding my perfect spot to sprawl out and see the firework show. My favorite ones are the white ones that crackle and look like glitter in the sky and I'd love to get my hands on some sparklers. Kinda annoying to only have one day off work but better than nothing I guess!

Have a great holiday!
