The Short Suit

Good Morning Blogging Beauties!

Today’s look is a repeat offender. I wore this short suit for the Phoenix Style Collective Blogging Conference in April.  It was LOVE at first sight for this suit and I. I also totally think that it’s the new dress for women! 181483_10151598285369630_1822565705_n

I wore the same shoes, (my fav swag from Lucky Fabb c/o JustFabb), but I wanted to add some color so I chose this bright coral vintage blouse.  I try and dress up any chance I get, considering most of my workwear is very casual.  And I paired this look with my fav new Stella & Dot necklace! This piece was by far my favorite piece from their collection! Have you checked out their stuffIMG_5288IMG_5292IMG_5295IMG_5301IMG_5306IMG_5310IMG_5287IMG_5304Bag-Alexander McQueen, Blouse-Vintage, Short Suit-LoveMarks, Sunnies-Kate Spade, Bracelets-Vintage/Forever 21/Stella & Dot

Summer Sorbet’s + AVC Get’s a Makeover

Hey guys! Notice anything different??? AVC just got a sweet makeover thanks to my friends from Resound Creative! What do you guys think?? I would love to know your thoughts!!!

Today’s look reminds me of marbled sorbet. Who doesn’t like a little sorbet in the summer time? This is also my 3rd look styled via Stella and Dot jewels. Ck out my last two posts here and here! I am loving these earrings so much. Not only are they are one of my favorite colors, but they’re also so light weight. Perfect for my constant on the go lifestyle!

Pool Fashion-Las Vegas Edition

Good Morning!!! After my recent trip to Vegas I realized that I haven’t ever talked much about pool fashion on AVC.  Being an Arizona resident and a self-proclaimed sun baby there are two important things that I always wear to the pool (besides sunscreen of course) and those are sunglasses and a hat!!! If I know I am going to a busy pool, similar to the ones that are in Las Vegas I always pick up some of my cheapy, non-designer sunnies that I don’t mind splashing around in.pool fashion

All of these styles above are from an Australian company called Quay eyewear and can be found at Asos and Nordstrom

The next important piece of any poolside outfit is a good hat! Whether it’s a good fedora or an oversized floppy it is always important to protect yourself from the sun.

We had such a fantastic time.  I have the best girlfriends. Period.580203_10152988857560402_217724835_n1044827_10152966716990029_1145952243_n1013054_10152988948820402_1479158920_nxoxo,

I’m back, with TONS of Goodness

Hi loves! I hope everyone had a great 4th of July weekend! I took an unintentional blogging break last week that was much needed. I have so much to catch you up on like new business opportunities, some sweet collabs, and of course our fabulous trip to Vegas that has left all 7 of us gf’s still group texting anxiously awaiting  our next trip! :)

WORK: I always get a lot of questions or emails regarding what I do for work.  I will start with a little background:  In 2006 my father and I opened Jimmy & Joe’s Pizzeria, a New York Style, fast casual restaurant that’s not your average pizzeria.  My dad has 30 years of Management/Ownership experience and is the best cook I know.  I graduated from college that summer and he took me under his wing ever from that moment on.  Summer of 2008 I quit Jimmy & Joe’s and moved to San Diego and worked for an amazing woman named Isabel Cruz, who taught me everything I know about good food, eating clean, farm to the table cuisine and the balance of hot and cool flavors. In 2010, my dad opened his 2nd Jimmy and Joe’s.  It was then when he started getting into my ear that he wanted me to move back and open up more restaurants with him.  At the end of 2011 I moved back to Phoenix to join him in expanding our family’s empire.  We had hopes of a 3rd store opening in 2012 and then that year came and went.  In february of 2013 this all changed.  It may have taken longer than expected, but it thrills me to report that we are not only opening that 3rd store this year, but also a 4th.  God never ceases to amaze me in His blessings.  In less than 3 months we will open #3 and by Fall of this year we will open #4. :)

Stella & Dot: All this week I am collaborating with the fab Caroline, my friend and Stella & Dot Stylist.  We have set up a Mystery Hostess Trunk Show online where For every $25 you spend, your name will be entered to win the hostess rewards, which on average are $250 in free jewelry & 4 items at 1/2 off!! There is also going to be a S&D giveaway later this week so stay tuned!

Las Vegas: Come back tomorrow for a LV recap manana where I am talking “pool fashion”

Double Denim

I have been loving denim on denim lately. Whether it’s mixing light and dark, or playing with color, it looks great on everyone! I put together a similar look last summer here.
