Well, summer is officially here!!! It hit 100 degrees last week and today I am laying out by the pool and enjoying this beautiful Arizona weather while writing to all of you!

So in honor of the summer weather I wanted to show you a casual, fun summer look that can be worn on the weekend day drinking or at a bbq.

I love dressing up but sometimes it’s nice to be comfy and casual when it’s hot. But don’t forget to stay extremely colorful this summer because you will see lots of color out there in magazines, fashion blogs and watching House Wives of Orange County of course lol! 🙂

Field of colors, lace, crystals and tall models galore; that pretty much summed up my Friday night at JW Marriot Desert Ridge for the Massage Envy Fashion Show! This show was a grand production and I had an amazing time styling this show! Thanks to Phoenix Fashion Week for letting me style such a fun and colorful event!

For this show I was inspired by Massage Envy’s location color/theme…..PURPLE!!! So I wanted the color pallet to flow around the rich purple they use to trademark their name. (Shown Below)

All of the models in this picture are wearing looks from Dillards. The Saturday before the show I spent close to 3 hours in the Scottsdale Fashion Square location, pulling looks because there was sooo much to choose from (which is never a bad thing). What really stood out to me was the flowy dresses and tailored jackets and for the men I was drawn to board shorts and rolled up skinny’s for summer!

I also wanted to give a special “shout out” to the amazing style team that helped me backstage with a flawless show! I look forward to working with all of you again! 🙂

Did a little shopping this week and over the weekend and wanted to show you some of my clothing and accessory finds! I went shopping at a couple of boutiques, Tempe Marketplace and JcPenny! Yes, it’s a pretty wide variety of places; but if something sparks my eye…I have to get it and if it is a great deal…then I have to get 2 (one for me and one for a friend).

I have been asked by some readers to show one piece of clothing turned into multiple looks. So I decided to show you a recent purchase of a nude top that I spoke about in my past blog from Clothes Minded Boutique in Phoenix. I love this top because it looks extremely expensive looking but not expensive in cost; this beautiful top was $39 and I am going to show you different ways to wear this top for day and night!

I love this look because it can work during the day with leopard flats and casual black leggings and then be transformed for night wear with black stiletto heels and chunky gold jewelry.

Where I got this look:

– Nude Top, Clothes Minded $39
– Black Button Up Leggings, Juicy Couture $198
– Tear Drop Gold Earrings, Muse Apparel Boutique $18
– Gold Mesh Bangle Bracelet, Wet Seal $10
– Sunglasses, Ray Ban $145

I am always looking for fun ways to dress for work because there are only so many suits and dresses I can wear to the office before I get bored! My new nude top inspired me to put together this work look today! I paired it with a bright green pencil skirt that gives the outfit the “POP” it needs to stand out! Another color that would look great with this top is plum purple, turquoise and even a bright mandarin orange color! I also paired this look with a motorcycle jacket to add a fun layering piece; you can even add a fitted black blazer or a cropped denim jacket with this look!

Where I got this look:
– Nude Top, Clothes Minded $39
– Green Pencil Skirt, Express $59.90
– Motorcycle Jacket, Express $99.00
– Gold and Gunmetal Earrings, Guess By Marciano $68
– Silver Watch, Michael Kors $275
– Snake Print Shoes, Gianni Bini $ 120

There are days when I wake up and all I want to do is wear my pajamas all day while I’m running errands. But I know that I can’t do that, so I came up with the next best outfit (that was super comfy) which included a pair of black leggings, a black button up, a turquoise scarf and a pair of black Tory Burch flats (sorry I forgot to take a picture of the outfit).
Earlier this week I asked my Facebook friends for some blog ideas and one of my good friends Ann, gave me a great idea! Which brings me to my blog topic today…..Scarf Versatility!

These are 2 of my favorite scarves for Spring. The coral round scarf is from Royal BOWTiQUE and the blue and white floral scarf is from Kohls! Hope you enjoy my blog video on ways to wear these beauties!

Are you looking for everything at your finger tips, when it comes to shopping? At LuLus.com you will find dresses, shoes, jewelry, high waist shorts in every color imaginable and so much more! I recently discovered this website when I was looking for some new Spring dresses. I googled “Mint Dresses,” and LuLus came up!

LuLu’s carries affordable finds by emerging designers and Indie finds from all over the world! Below are some of my favorite looks for Spring 2013!

These four pieces are some of my favs for Spring! This site has everything for every look you are going for; whether it’s a casual look or a red carpet event. The lace nude top is very versatile with a pair of black cigarette pants (they look like high-water skinny jeans) or high-waist neon pink shorts! You will be seeing a lot of lace this Spring and Summer in shorts dresses and accessories.

As for the dresses, I love the fact that it is the easiest piece of my wardrobe to put together because I only need to add accessories and heels! But if you are not a dress kind of gal no problem; I still have you covered with…SHOES!

I am a “heel fan,” myself but they have a lot of ballet flats, sandals and boots in various colors and textures. I have not purchased their shoes as of yet so I do not know the quality but they look amazing…and pain is beauty! 🙂

Happy Friday and Style on ladies!

Some nights when I go out I want to look cute but feel comfy at the same time and the outfit shown above is just the outfit for that!

My lace like jeggings, which are a combination of leggings and skinny jeans, are from The Limited and are super comfortable and very soft. When I put them on I felt as if I was putting on pajama pants. The jeggings also came in various colors and prints, check out their website to find a print and color just for you! //www.thelimited.com/womens-clothing/jeans-denim,default,sc.html?navid=left

My gemmed out skull graphic tee was from Wet Seal (which is one of my favorite stores for an inexpensive fun look). Wet Seal has tees galore in every color and style all under $30. //www.wetseal.com/catalog/thumbnail.jsp?categoryId=101&subCategoryId=215

To tie the entire outfit together, I paired my black motorcycle jacket from Express. (I bought it last year so they might not have the exact style but I guarantee you can find one similar ). I love fitted motorcycle jackets because they are a great layering piece, that can complete so many different looks in your closet. //www.express.com/jackets-vests-32/control/show/12/index.cat

I’ve always loved the look of faux fur because it truly looks like the real deal…but you don’t have to wear the guilt. This past weekend I went to Tempe Market Place to do some early Christmas shopping and in the Wet Seal window display there it was….the fur vest of my dreams!

What I like about this vest (shown above in the left corner) is that you can dress it down with leggings and flat combat boots or dress it up with rolled up jeans and stilettos. One of my friends that is newly pregnant asked me to post some outfits for pregnant women so here you go Ashley, I hope you like it!

You can find faux fur almost anywhere. Lately I have found the vest at the store sites listed below:

www.wetseal.com

www.bcbg.com

www.forever21.com

www.express.com

//www.qvc.com/Rachel-Zoe-Faux-Fur-Vest-with-Hook-Eye-Closure.product.A93632.html

I also think this is a great look for the holiday season because in Arizona we can’t wear fur jackets because it’s too darn hot!

Fur on! <3
