Pom Pom Pineapple

A super chic way to be casual this summer is with the addition of pom poms to your shorts!

When it’s scorching outside I like to dress in as little clothing as possible without baring it all and this is my idea of the perfect daytime look when you have to endure the heat.  The pineapple print shirt is the perfect carefree thing to pair with vibrant printed shorts, and I’m sorry but I need to add these pom poms to all of my shorts – so cute and fun!  I thought the heels were casual, while the bag and necklace added necessary glamour.  Shop this summer look below:

SUMMER SHOPPING SPREE

Every once and a while you have to treat yourself to a little shopping spree and that’s what I did last week!

Last week I needed a Friday pick me up so I headed to Westfield Topanga shopping center to stock up on a few summer must-haves!  Not only did I find every piece of clothing I am wearing above, but there were great sales and food and it’s one of the best places to get some retail therapy!  From BCBG, Anthropologie, J.Crew and H&M – this girl scored some goodies (and the sales in the mall were amazing!)  I found this amazing nude color faux leather skirt and knew I had to build a few outfits around it because it is going to be a tried and true staple in my wardrobe!  This type of skirt is easy to dress up or down, which is what I did in the two looks above.  The jean jacket pairing is so chic and street-cool, not to mention this jacket will live a long life in your closet.  A perfect white tee, pastel heels and statement necklace topped the versatile look off.  For a sophisticated nighttime look I chose a black and white cropped top and crystal necklace with sexy black lace-up heels!  Shop both looks below:

Anthropologie Pilcro Terry Denim Jacket // J.Crew White Tshirt // Paula and Chlo Necklace // Zimmerman Clutch // L.K. Bennett Heels // Jennifer Fisher Block Cuff // Gorjana Azra Handchain

There is nothing better in the dog days of summer than to be able to dress casual and in whatever makes your heart sing!  One of the many reasons I love being my own boss is because I never have a dress code and can always express myself exactly the way I want to through my clothing choices.  If you do have a job where you have an office dress code, save this amazing dress for the weekend or your next summer vacay because it is a must-have!  It’s laid back, but sexy at the same time, and who wouldn’t go bananas for the lace on the sleeves?!  I toughened this girly dress up a bit with black accessories to make it a bit more edgy.  Shop this perfect summer Friday look below and have a great weekend!

There is nothing better than a Saturday spent at the beach.

One of the best perks of living in California is being close to the beach.  Surprisingly enough, I don’t make it to the beach all that often because it’s pretty much an hour away after you factor in traffic, but when I do they are always the best days!  There is nothing like relaxing on the sand and getting your feet wet in the vast ocean waves.  I have a lot of suits and cover-ups in in my closet, but the best are always the ones that bring a sense of luxe and elegance to the shore.  I love this floor-length black and white one because it’s versatile enough to romp around at the beach and then to get some skinny spicy margs at a nearby watering hole, especially with a little dose of bling on my feet!  Shop the look here:

Some of you may have followed along on Instagram last week as I hosted a super fun event we called a Candy Crafternoon at my friend Andrea’s boutique in Beverly Hills, A.Sweet Boutique (they are giving my readers 25% off!  Use the code ASWEETPSW when you shop the site!)  She sells a mix of contemporary fashion and fashionable candy so we came up with the idea of throwing a shindig for a few of our closest gals to design their own look out of candy and wrappers!  It was so much fun!  We dined on the most delicious cake from Duff’s Cakemix and some sweet sips from Club W.  Shop my summer party look below:

Who doesn’t love a classes white on white ensemble?  There is nothing that says summer to me more, especially when you add a pop of color through your accessories.  I love these lace-up teal heals and try to wear them whenever I can because they make a sexy statement, even when you’re grabbing a cup of joe!  The neutral boyfriend sweater and leather clutch were the perfect necessities to top off the look on a gloomy LA day.  I also busted out my chic new rose gold choker – in love!  Shop the look below:

WATCH: 1on1 WITH PHOTOGRAPHER GRAY MALIN

I started this series because too many people in my life I felt were inspirational with life stories untold.  I am so happy to be surrounded by people who are following their dreams and doing what they love on a daily basis and really making things happen for themselves, which brings me to my new guest, Gray Malin!  I have been fortunate enough to call Gray a friend for a year or two now, but I have also remained a steadfast fan of his work – he is a famous photographer who documents all of his amazing travels.  From the Prada Marfa photographs, to my favorites in Capri, and his recent Antarctica shots – he is certainly one of a kind.  Make sure to shop his work on MaisonGray.com and OneKingsLane.com.

My favorite piece of advice from Gray: “Make sure to knock because the door isn’t going to open on it’s own” in reference to asking for help in following your dreams!
