Springing into Wedding Season!

So there is something about knowing I have two very different weddings in the next few months. One is happening down in Mexico, that has a fun casual vibe, and one is a very fashion forward event. So what do I do to mix it up and feel cool in both places? I headed to Hiptique because they are my one stop shop for all thing fancy and casual. I mean their bathing suit selection is another story….but that is coming next month.

Let me start with being fashion forward, because that is not in my total comfort zone. This jumpsuit is pretty much amazing, and from one of my favorite lines Michelle Mason. For me, it is about making a bit more masculine by adding a blouse under it.

Also, if I am going fashion forward, the hair in a big bun does the trick, I mean I actually feel really high fashion!

And now to my comfort zone, which means a wedding in Mexico that screams for a long dress.

This is me, mid dance having a blast, and realizing I can dance the night away in this floral dress from Harshman. Not to mention my normal go to is a messy braid that will last all night long!

Also, the back of this dress is totally my style, and guess what, this girl can get away with some converse chucks with it. But…yes, even if I have a fashion forward wedding, at the end of the night I am putting on some Nike Cortez kicks, like the ones from Maria Sharapova!Nike Cortez

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.

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.

How to Create The Perfect Fall Wedding Look

I have several weddings and cocktail events coming up in the next month. This time of year, I love to find dresses that are a bit different then what I typically wear. As we get closer to the holidays I tend to be more festive.

This dress is from The Stylist LA, a designer dress borrowing service. Founded in 2009, its aim is to bring stylish clothing to women who wish to dress a certain way, but do not want to buy a new outfit for every occasion. For some of my more formal weddings and events coming up, this is my go to for a great fall wedding look.

I have often tried on pieces from Nightcap Clothing, but this was my first adventure in one of their beautiful detailed dresses. The lace is done just right, and I love the color of the navy. It is sexy yet feminine. The wedding was outdoors, so I made it more funky by pairing a Seychelles boot with it.

I love the bright addition of my favorite Alice and Olivia clutch. It is the perfect size handbag for events, and it makes the look pop a bit more. Florals are so on trend for fall, and it adds a playfulness to the look.
