It's officially summer and that means summer weddings are quickly approaching! Out of the three wedding I'm attending, I'm on the hunt for two. The last wedding this summer I've been honored to be a bridesmaid! :-) I'm so happy and thrilled to take on this responsibility! One of the wedding will be in coveted Wine Country and the other in Hawaii. Florals are my go to for any occasion but it's even more perfect for a Hawaiian Wedding! Fortunately, the two floral dresses above are on clearance...even the nude colored ankle strap sandals! The lace dress in Jade is such a gorgeous color! but I think for an evening wedding and transitioning into fall makes it perfect. Now...which do I choose?!

Happy Wednesday All! It's been a rough week but we are halfway to the finish line! On the bright side, the weather has been amazing lately so that definitely helps lighten the mood a bit...actually a lot! Hope your week is going great thus far!

Today I'm wearing this super fun Tibi crop top. What I like the most about it is that it isn't fitted but has a slight blousy flare to it. And the print colors are so simple and fresh for this time of year! There are multiple ways to wear a crop top, and there's a way many body types can wear it. For a girl with a few curves to share I'd wear it with a similar look to mine...a high waisted bottom. With a high waisted skirt, the crop top doesn't reveal too much especially if it has some shape. The extra structure to the top allows for just the right amount of extra coverage. For a gal with a straighter figure, a body con crop top or even with a short turtle neck would be just as cute!

This summer crop tops are taking over...here are a few that's got me smitten!

Happy Monday! The weekend is over but it's not so bad since we've finally been getting summer weather! There's nothing more pleasing than waking up, looking outside and seeing the Bay Bridge free of a blanket of fog! This also makes styling a summer work look super simple!

For a work summer look, I think fun mix of colors, mix of match of fabric and trending prints. What's more classic than a stripped white and navy shirt?! Stripes are one of the most easy prints to pair for summer style! There are a number of directions you can go...for this look, I went with florals. And not just any floral, a floral flare scuba skirt! This skirt is everything! With the number of colors there isn't a color you can wear with it and go wrong. That's exactly why this skirt allows you to get away with wearing a neon yellow bag and red shoe. Even better, the length is slightly above your knee so it passes the "long enough to wear in the office" test! A few rules I go by with work fashions:

1) Fit: is there enough room in the outfit to allow you to walk and sit freely? Stay away from super fitted or hugging clothes. And if it is tight enough to see the lining of your body, layer with a long cardi or scarf.

2) Length: does the length of the shirt long enough to reach the top of the bottoms or skirt/dress go slightly above your knees. The test I like to do is stand straight with your arms on your side. The skirt or dress should go past the longest point your fingers reach. If it's slightly shorter, wear an opaque tight so there won't appear to be much skin showing.

3) Fabric: always take a good look at the complete look and make sure there is no transparency. If you can almost see the lining of your bra through your shirt, throw on a tank under. It's okay to wear a shear shirt as long as there's another top underneath.

4) Graphics: I sometimes like to wear tee's with trousers or even with jeans on casual Friday. I'd stay away from any racey images and offensive text. This could be an obvious one but you'd be surprised what I've seen in my office! Eeek!!

Hope you all have a wonderful day today and hope my little tips help you bring out your personality when putting together your summer work style! Enjoy the rest of your week loves!!

Happy Friday everyone!! We made it :-) I don't know what I like better, the anticipation that oozes from every bone for the weekend, or the relief when the weekend is finally here! Well, what better way to end the week than with denim on denim.

I'll be the first one to agree that one can never have too many chambray tops...but this Sam & Lavi draped denim popover shirt is my new fav denim top! Move over ordinary button up chambrays! Not quite sure if it's the loose blousy fit or the high low effect from from to back. Or that it gives an illusion of a wrap top. Whatever it is, all variables make for a super simple yet chic chambray top. And the icing on the cake...it's on sale at Anthro!

Hello June! You know what that means...summer is almost here!! Summer is one of my favorite seasons for fashion. The plethora of bright and vivid colors, the fun summer dresses and all the different fabrics one can play with! I find that I am more experimentitive with putting my outfits together. Summer is loud, bright, enthusiastic and excited...and so should your clothes! 

I love this wide leg pant especially the color. Find me anything the color blush and I'll take it! ;-) The material is very flowy and super comfortable. The length is just right, long enough to wear with heels while not too short to wear with flats. Finding long enough pants are difficult for me to find...these were perfect! How would you wear these pants? Heels or flats??

Thanks for stopping by dolls!
