THE Ankle Boot

Hey Tuesday! This week is a short one for me. I leave tomorrow night for San Francisco to celebrate my b-day.  I am looking forward to relaxing and being with my girlfriends.  We are heading up to Sonoma for the weekend and I cannot even wait.  I ordered these booties in hopes that they would arrive before my trip.  I hate the anxiety of waiting for a package. Am I right? Anyways, they came this morning and I immediately put them on! The height is perfect and the gold hardware…RIDICULOUS.  What do you think? I ordered these from Kohl’s, which was a first for me.  They are a knockoff of the Chloe shoe seen here. Not too shabby for $24 bucks.  Also check out more reasonable versions here and here.

Inn at Laguna Beach

Last week Dapper Fellow and I stayed in Laguna Beach for a little weekend getaway.  If you haven’t had a chance to check out this gem of a city make sure it’s on some sort of travel list in the future.  These photos were taken on the patio of our darling hotel, The Laguna Beach Inn.  I honestly have never stayed at a more hospitable hotel. By the end we knew all the employees by name and they were beyond helpful for suggestions on where to go and what to eat. I cannot wait to go back later this summer for a trip to Catalina Island!

Vacation Holiday

As of today I am officially on vacation. Dapper Fellow and I are heading up to northern Arizona for my family reunion then we are off to Newport Beach.  I am so excited to relax and kick back with the ones I love the most.  Almost all of my family lives in the midwest and I rarely get to see them so it really makes me treasure the time I am able to spend with them!

I picked up this vintage blouse when I bought this gorg dress from Goodwill last week! I have a weakness for printed blouses similar to this and this one did not disappoint! You may not be able to tell, but I covered the top, center button with a gold vintage lion pin. I am in the process of trying to transform it into a necklace.  Anyone have any ideas?? Let me know!!!

The Saguaro Hotel

One of my favorite thing to do in the summer is to go to hotel pools in my own backyard.  Scottsdale is home to many relaxing resorts and spas and they encourage residents to come dine, swim, drink, and stay at their properties.  (*Travel tip and little known fact about AZ: The Summer months are very slow and rates are at an all time low so if you can stand the high temps it is a great time for a weekend getaway)

Today’s look was taken at the Saguaro Hotel.   After a lovely day in the sun, we ended our afternoon with tacos and margs at the delicious restaurant inside the hotel called Distrito! Dapper Fellow and I have been here before on a date night, but never for Happy Hour. If you live in the valley or are in town visiting you MUST try this place out.  A3

Girls In Sneakers

The secret is out, sneakers aren’t just for men anymore. I have always been drawn towards any sort of masculine trend for women. Sneakers are very familiar to me, as I am dating a “sneaker head”, other wise known as DF.  Dapper Fellow loves sneakers like we love ALL shoes. He has a large influence on my day to day fashion even though he probably doesn’t think so. IMG_4311 IMG_4330 IMG_4332 IMG_4321

2 Besties, 2 Fall Looks you must try!

Hey loves!

Did you know that this morning you were about to partake in a double dose of sass and glam? :) Well you are! Today I am featuring my best friend/sister/partner in crime/fashionista KRYSTAL BAKER!!! Krystal and I were mobbin around town and I couldn’t resist her adorbs outfit.  I want to start featuring more of my gorgeous, fashionable friends so without further adieu I present to you my KB <3

Blouse-Trouve, Jeans-Paige, Wedges-Steve Madden, Scarf-Forever 21, Sweater-Halogen, Bag-Elliot Lucca, Hat-David and Young, Belt/Jewelry-Vintage, Glasses-Unknown (which I am pissed about bc I want them!)

What I love about Krystal’s look is that it screams “effortless Fall!”  Arizona doesn’t get super cold, so light layers are key.  I love the mixed animal prints, bold colors, nude heel, muted jean and blouse.  All of the pieces are strong on their own, yet they somehow work well put together. Krystal is so good at throwing together outfits and taking risks in her fashion.  She can truly pull off anything!

Buttoned up Floral

Floral has to be right up there with stripes for me in the favorite pattern category. Both carry such versatility and are easy to pair with almost everything! Even though I am DYING for fall I have had to wait in breaking out the full blown autumn threads.  This Peter Pan style collar I have worn before here, but thought of mixing it up and wearing it underneath the shirt.  What is it about these collars that make an outfit look so put together?

As I mentioned last month there are awesome opportunities happening at AVC. Stay tuned tomorrow when I share what the next 3 months will entail!

Stripes & Boat Shoes

TGIT loves!  Where did the week go?! My goodness!!!  I am mixing things up this week and doing Instagram Friday, instead of my usual Thursday!!! So stay tuned!!! Today’s outfit includes one of my absolute favorite wardrobe pieces. This striped shirt I found at a thrift store in Long Beach 4 years ago. It is from JCrew and I have worn it so much through every season.  Here I paired it with these Free People highlighter yellow corduroy cut offs and Sperrys.  Shorts and Sperrys will soon be a distant memory so I am trying to get in as much wear as possible before my favorite season hits!!

Scarf Print Galore

Totally in love with this trend because I feel like it screaaaams VINTAGE. I adore the bright colors of these threads,  so feminine and lovely for summer.  I am dying for that ROMPER (#6)

1, 2, 4, 6-River Island, 3-Topshop, 5-Oasis

If you didn’t know about River Island or Oasis before you have to check them out.  Similar to Topshop they coin a style and fashion only London can produce. One of my girlfriends/roommates from college lives there and has opened my eyes to so many different amazing shopping websites.  Seriously, I need to get back to London ASAP!!! This weekend when I was browsing these websites and loving on the scarf print I realized that I had a vintage scarf print shirt hiding away in my closet.

Leopard With Neon

At this point I feel that it is clear that leopard is one of my favorite things to wear. I love the versatile look the print brings to every outfit.  Aiming for a comfortable, neonic combination I added the orange chain/yellow sandals last minute. Subtle brights are perfect for Summer!
