What to Wear to a Spring Wedding!

It is that time of year again already. It seems like with a blink of an eye, wedding season is upon us once again. I have three coming up this season, and like most women I want to look fabulous on a budget. With so many fun options, I like to stand out with fun color either in the dress itself, like this amazing yellow lace piece from Nordstrom or in a detailed accessory.

Spring wedding romper

This Christian Dior bag from The Real Real was a steal. If you are like me, I love to find designer items on a budget. This site is amazing for that, and this purse is not only fun, but definitely has fun pops of color whether you pair it with a bold dress, or a simple black number for a dressier wedding.


Two of the weddings I will be attending are in California, and the nights always cool off. Instead of bringing along a pashmina, I like to do something a bit more playful and unexpected. This soft suede Blank NYC jacket Is perfect. The color is gorgeous, and it goes right along with my personality. A long duster coat would also be a perfect addition to many dresses.

Good vibes for the holiday madness

Good Vibes for the holiday madness!

Wow, I can’t believe that this is the final stretch of holiday madness. Not only have I yet to finish my shopping, my entire extended family is here in Las Vegas. Part of our tradition is to bake homemade Croatian nut bread, attend a UNLV basketball game, and head to our favorite family run Italian restaurant. On top of that, we also host an annual Christmas Eve party, so it is basically a week of craziness.

Sundry holiday sweater

When I saw this Sundry sweater from Hiptique, I knew I had to have it. Not only is it soft and comfy, it is definitely getting me through this week. Their sweaters, also found at Nordstrom are always among my favorite. I will mix it up with my boyfriend jeans and some sneakers in the next few weeks.

Cat eye frames

Also, when I travel, I seem to lose my sunglasses all over the place. One of my favorite finds over the years is the B.P. line from Nordstrom. They always have several shapes, and if you can believe they are only $12.00. How cute are these cat eye frames.

white handbags

Lately, I have also been crushing on white handbags. I found this one at Zara, and again, it was under $50.00. I love to invest in one or two a year, and then for more trendy pieces I usually try and find ones that will not break the bank.

cropped checked crepe tapered pants

Hello pants! Elizabeth and James is one of my favorite clothing lines, and their attention to detail is what always causes me to purchase pieces. These may be one of my favorite finds this season from Neiman Marcus. The ruffle detailing on the top is so fun, and they will be just as great in the Spring with a white tank and sandals.

Sam Edelman boots

Also when running around all week, if I am not in my sneakers, then I certainly will be wearing my favorite comfortable booties from Sam Edelman. They make this boot every season, and once they are worn in you can wear them for days on end. Just saying, we all need a pair like this while rushing around in the holiday madness!

Karina Grimaldi maxi dress screams autumn in the city

This maxi dress from Karina Grimaldi, available at Hiptique is spot on for fall. The colors scream autumn in the city, and the tassel details are right on trend. Being here in Los Angeles, it is easy to get away without a jacket during the day, but as night falls, a simple leather jacket and booties make the look complete.

Fun prints maxi dress

I took the day to shoot around FIDM where I studied after college. The campus is beautiful, and the trees are full of leaves that have turned the perfect fall shades. It’s always a reminder of how far I’ve come since the days of being a student here on campus. I had the chance to come back and speak, as always, I had a wonderful day talking to the students.

At this time of year, there are quite a few fashion events around the city, my go to is a long dress I can run around in easily. Karina Grimaldi is one of my favorites, as she always uses fun prints and details in the designs. As her seasons evolve, so do the designs, and you can find the best selection on Revolve Clothing.

Kicking up my heels with Chinese Laundry

I have long been a fan of Chinese Laundry Shoes! Not only are they super on trend each season, but their price points are spot on. I own several pairs of their sandals, and I am currently living in this fun Cowgirl pair. As the summer season comes to an end I will be looking forward to seeing their new boots for the Fall.
