An off-the shoulder dress for a weekend in the desert!  We finally jetted off for a little time away, just the husband and I!  I hope you guys followed along our amazing trip to Palm Springs on Instagram.  We literally did nothing but eat, lay out, drink and sleep – it was just what the doctored ordered and we both came back feeling ready for the week.  We had a little date night Friday night and while is was still 90 degrees at night, I still wanted to look cute so I threw on this easy breezy dress.  I love the sexiness of it being off-the-shoulder, but the chicness in the color and shape of the sleeve.  A black woven clutch and brown heeled sandals topped the casual look off.  Shop everything below:

This polka dot midi skirt and button-down blouse is the epitome of what business chic looks like, but tying the blouse makes this look playful, care-free and sophisticated at the same time.  This is really the way to take a workwear look from day to night, or if you are like me and don’t have a daytime dress-code then you can pull it off whenever.  I never met a polka dot I didn’t like and then add silk + the midi length + pleats and you might just have the perfect combo.  I can see this skirt styled several ways in the coming month: with a tank, sweater, tee and leather jacket – need I say more!  Shop the look below and hope you guys have a great week!

The perfect weekend dress for the perfect weekend getaway!  The husband and I have been waiting to take a vacation for a long time (we usually travel a lot during the summer), but were on hold this year due to lots of work.  This weekend feels like the kick-off of many great trips ahead (more details to come).  Today we are headed to my favorite place for relaxation – Palm Springs!  We are going to sweat out all of the stress in the crazy heat, sip cocktails in the pool and overall get some much needed R&R.  Make sure you follow along on Insta!  Shop this weekend sheath dress below :

DISTRESSED DONE RIGHT

The chicest way to wear boyfriend jeans is with a sexy cami!

We all have a cute pair of boyfriend jeans in our closet that we wear when we want to be more relaxed, but what about dressing them up?  I love a great pair of boyfriends with a nude heel and in this case a little leopard cami top.  It is sexy and chic looking.  This is the perfect date night or drinks out with the girls look.  Add a blazer over it and you can take this look from day to night.  See another way I wore boyfriend jeans HERE and how my friend Taye styled them HERE.  Shop this look below:

August to me signifies two things: the dreadful end of summer (nooooo!) and then also preparing for fall, which can be cool if you like layering.  I want to hold onto to the bright summer months including hotter temps, longer days and smaller clothing for as long as I can.  This  look embodies my idea of summer to a T.  Are you bored of hearing about my obsession with bright colors and prints yet??  I hope not because there is more to come!  My tip is to just make sure to pare the vibrancy of the look with neutral tones like I did with the heels and blazer.  Shop my look below:

Last week was one of those weeks where nothing I did was good enough.  I just plain felt down in the dumps!  No matter how good you know you have it (and believe me I feel super thankful and privileged for the life I live), I think it’s ok to feel bad for yourself every now and again as long as it makes you get back up and refocus you energies.  I am all about making positive thinking and asking for whatever it is you want, so whenever you feel bad about something think of what will make you feel better.  This shirt is very fitting for this post because I am in a mood of taking life by the horns!  No excuses!  I hope you guys make a choice this week to do something you really want to do for yourself or make a change for the good!  Have a great week!  Shop my street chic look below:

FOR THE BIRDS

Summer is fun, so why shouldn’t summer dressing be?!

A dress with a bird print is whimsical, fun and overall the perfect way to dress casual during the hot summer months.  This lightweight cotton midi shift dress caught my eye right away because I need more light-hearted things in my life!  I am sure you guys can relate!  Sometimes we get so serious and caught up in the things that aren’t perfect in our lives that we forget to laugh a little and enjoy the amazing things we do have.  Today is very special because it is my mom’s birthday and she is one of the most amazing women I have ever met.  She is not only my mom, but my best friend and role model.  She loves being silly, to make herself and others laugh, and is the sweetest mom anyone could ask for!  This dress actually reminds me of her so it is fitting I am posting it on her birthday!  Mom- this one is for you!  Thank you for being you and for always loving and supporting me!

EDITRIX PICKS: MUST-BUY STRIPES

Stripes are in season year round and never go out of style.  I love striped clothing and can never get enough so I thought I would share a few of the striped pieces I am lusting after right now with you guys!  My one tip when buying stripes: horizontal stripes have a bad rep for making you look wider than you are so my advice is to not buy the item too tight!  Shop by clicking the photos above and let me know in the comments which is your favorite or how you like to style a good stripe.  Happy shopping!
