Happy Good Friday Blogging Beauties! Easter has always been my favorite holiday ever since I was a little girl twirling around in a pretty Easter dress picking tulips from the garden. There is something about the pastel colors, bunnies, chocolate (duh), and the bloom of flowers that just brings happiness to my life. I love making Easter baskets because naturally I love Easter Egg hunts.  I still to this date purchase an Easter dress each year... except this year (insert sad face) I am shooting a wedding all day Saturday & family sessions on Sunday.... I guess that is life of a photographer! 

PS I can't help but be in love with the outfit I am wearing today. I am obsessed with mint jeans + this green colorful blouse from Dana-Leigh Apparel (its on sale!) adds a little bit of prep to polish off the look!

the perfect little white dress

dress (HERE): Romeo & Juliet Couture // shoes (SIMILAR): Badgley Mischka // clutch: LA Boutique // earrings c/o Pink Slip Boutique 

Every year I purchase a fabulous white dress in spring for the warm summer months. No particular style or occasion of a dress but I make it a point to find one special white dress each year. A couple weeks ago I found this amazing Romeo & Juliet Couture faux leather ivory dress.... it even has pockets!  I wasn't even on the scout for a white dress, I was stressed late night shopping the night before Lucky FABB and came across this beauty hanging in the middle of Neiman Marcus Last Call I walked over and found love! I put it on & tada it fit like a glove. I wore it to my dinner  & night out while at the Lucky FABB conference, it was perfect for beverly hills!

bright color blocking

pants: Francescas // shirt (HERE) c/o LeTote // hat (SIMILAR): Traget // bag: H&M // shoes: Steve Madden // bracelet: Forever21

Happy Monday! I have been watching the weather channel this weekend and looks like most of the country got to experience some spring weather this weekend... it's about time! As much as I am loving feminine dresses, bralettes, + flip flops for this perfect 80 degrees, I am still a huge sucker for hard core color blocking. I pulled these old cobalt blue patterned pants from the back of my closet last week, if you ask me colored pants will always be in style! I matched my neon green blouse & my white fedora to complete this laid back "3 day old hair" look. I also had black flip flops that I wore during the day but decided to throw on my wedges for happy hour that night. I liked the wedges better!

LuckyFABB outfit #2 + a giveaway!

skirt (HERE) + shoes (HERE) c/o LuLu*s // shirt + necklace: Target // belt + bag: Forever21

Today I am sharing the second outfit I wore to brunch at the LuckyFABB conference last week. These snakeskin heels have quickly jumped to the top of the chart for my go-to shoe. I paired them with a red (kinda orange) skater skirt from LuLu*s (in love with!) and a simple lace t-shirt. I accessorized minimally with just an old belt (it was too big so I tied it in a knot!) and a brown & white statement necklace from Target. It was a simple and day appropriate outfit that can be doubled for an all day affair. As the temperatures are quickly reaching 100 here in AZ I have a feeling I will be wearing this skirt often!

On another note, to end the week correctly I have a giveaway for you! Take a look at all the goodies you can win!!!

To do this, I've teamed up with some absolutely amazing ladies, and we're giving it our all to make one of you a very lucky winner of a $100 Target gift card, a personalized Erin Condren Life Planner, a Tory Burch Metallic Wallet, and an iHome. One winner takes it all!

The perfect geometric print outfit

JOA Geometric Print skirt (HERE) & top (HERE): Nordstrom // shoes (SIMILAR) + bag (SIMILAR) + necklace (SIMILAR) c/o LuLu*s // Ralph Lauren Ball Stud earrings (HERE): Nordstrom

I have been looking for the perfect two piece (I don't know the proper name for it) outfit for a few weeks now. I know it's more of a trend item that a classic staple so I didn't want to spend a fortune but I did want quality. When I came across this perfect JOA Geometric Print outfit from Nordstrom for just $79 (for both!) I knew it was destined. I had been looking for the perfect LuckyFABB outfit, you know the put together but casual awesome outfit? Once I added the JOA Geometric to my cart shopping was pretty much finished! The yellow & navy go great together for a fun flirt look but not too feminine and the crop top is a perfect fit, not too short but still allows a little bit of skin show.  All in all, I am more than happy with my decision to purchase!

Salvation Mountain

Last week on my way to LuckyFABB conference in LA {Amy} & I took a pit stop at Salvation Mountain just outside of Palm Springs, CA. I had never heard of such a thing but Amy had been reading all about Leanord and his mountain of paint! Although it was 2 hours of out the way (directions said 12 miles, not two hours.... you can imagine my stress level as we are trying to frantically get to LA) the trip was worth it. It was truly a unique site that I am happy I got to see. Read more of the history on Salvation Mountain & next time you are in the Palm Springs area I would suggest taking a pit stop to check it out! I LOOOOOVE all the colors and brightness of the landmark.
