Not So Mellow Yellow: Hottest Summer 2018 Trend

Hey guys! While the sun is blazing in California and I’m assuming the snow is starting to melt in most places, the spring clothes are coming out in stores. This time of year gets me excited for warmer weather, brighter colors and longer days. Yellow has always been my favorite color for as long as I can remember (Belle was my favorite Disney princess when I was younger), so when I started noticing the major trend of yellow, I knew this was one for the books!  In specific, a small yellow gingham cami dress is the hottest dress for Summer 2018! Different variations of this dress are evident everywhere, as well as two-piece yellow gingham sets, crop tops, and skirts. Yellow is such a bright and luminous color, and makes everyone look instantly awake and joyful. The tricky part about yellow is that it can either come off as too orange or neon where it washes out the person wearing it. The yellow that has been seen trending in stores is nice and calm, or shall we say mellow? However, it’s not mellow because the yellow trend is spreading like crazy so scroll down below for some affordable options where you guys can get the look for yourself!

The 6 Trendiest 2017 New Year’s Eve Looks!

Hey guys! I hope you all had a safe and happy holiday! With that said, there is still one more holiday to celebrate: New Years! Its the perfect time to pull out all of the glitz and glamour that gets pushed to the back of our closets every other day of the year. I mean who doesn’t want to shine like a disco ball for the new year?! The new year is all about having a positive perspective and mindset, and there’s no better way of displaying that than having an AMAZING outfit to grace your Instagram feed! Step 1. of finding the perfect outfit is knowing the look you want to go for. After doing some research, I have gathered the perfect list of possible looks that are fail proof and have a picture-worthy guarantee.

1.The Simple Satin:

This is just a classic go-to when all else fails. With so many color options, this really gives you the opportunity to dress it up or down. Pair it with some heels and complimentary jewelry, and you’re ready to have a good time with family. Trade your heels for some trendy sneakers and add a high ponytail, and you’re ready to hang out with some friends.

2. The Classic Shimmer:

This one goes without saying but New Years calls for some glitter. This is the one day out of the whole year where your dress can be sequined and beaded to your hearts content…just don’t bring out the bedazzler.

3. The Pantsuit:

It’s almost 2018! Girls wearing pantsuits dominated the fashion magazines all of 2017 and aren’t going away any time soon. A classic tailored suit could look great on any one, even for a party. Need to make it more festive and less work attire? Let the low cut of the blazer speak for itself and pair it with a low cut blouse and long necklace to flatter the neckline. Or, throw it back to the satin trend and pair your pantsuit with a color matching satin blouse underneath, with some fun colorful or sparkly pumps to match.

4. The Shorts and Strappy Sandals:

I’m all for changing up the fashion scene and standing out in a crowd, and what better way to do that than wearing pants or shorts when everyone other girl will most likely be wearing a dress? Some tailored shorts, lace, printed, or even sequin blouse, paired with some killer heels will be sure to turn heads.

5. The Jumpsuit:

Continuing on from #3 and #4, wearing something other than a dress or skirt for a New Year’s Eve party screams 2018 more than anything else. Like the pantsuit, a monochromatic jumpsuit is flattering to almost all body types and makes any girl look unstoppable. The outfit is practically done for you. All you need now is some sparkly accessories to make this look even more fun. Any hairstyle would look great with this as well, such as: high ponytail, sleek bun, or loose curls. Not to mention this could be worn both in the spring in summer to family gatherings, graduations, and spring weddings.

6. The Formal Romper:

Last but certainly not least, we have the romper. I love the idea of a romper but can never seem to find one that I love. When I spotted these, I knew I would definitely put them in the running for my New Year’s outfit. It’s just something different that the classics and once again, the outfit is pretty much done for you.

Leather Weather: Where to get this season’s most popular jacket style!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! One thing I love about Thanksgiving is that as soon as its over, my family starts decorating our house and tree for Christmas, which reminds me that there is colder weather ahead! One of the trickiest things about living in the Bay Area (San Francisco) is that we have cold weather but nothing compared to freezing temperatures and snow. This means that you have to find an awkward medium of dressing warm but not going crazy with the ski jackets and snow boots. So, for anyone who deals with cold weather this winter, a sturdy jacket is a necessity! Leather jackets have always been popular but have always had an association with riding a motorcycle or being tough. However, anyone who’s worn a leather jacket knows that nothing can make you feel as confident as rocking a stylish leather jacket. Now, so many stores are coming out with cute but trendy leather jackets that are changing the dynamic of this old time style. While these jackets may make you feel like a T-Bird from Grease, they will make you look as flawless and confident as a Pink Lady. Some great stores to check out if you LOVE this style is Topshop, Forever 21, Anthropologie, Zara, and Lulus.


Hope you guys enjoyed this post!

Summer Prep: Outfits for Special Occassions 

This is the season for birthday parties, outdoor barbaques, and weddings so you want to make sure that you can easily mix and match all of your outfit choices. Recently, I went to a birthday party and was stumbling at the last minute to find something to wear. Not only did I order it way to late, but I didn’t even receive my package in time for the party with premium shipping. I was quickly trying to put together an outfit I liked and while going through the this process I realized a few tips that would be helpful to share with all of you! 


  • Have at least one fancy blouse Ina neautral color for easy mixing. 
  • Bright and colorful skirts make any outfit more fun and are easy to dress up or down for casual occasions. 
  • Have two favorite clutches. I say that the best is to always have a neautral clutch and a fun clutch to bring more excitement or class to an outfit. 
  • Shoes! Fun shoes are definitely one of my favorite things ever, but when it comes to limiting your spending and trying to be reasonable, having neautral wedges is a definite lifesaver for the spring and summer! 
  • Accessories: this can make or break an outfit so you want to make sure that you are going with the overall gone of the outfit when deciding your jewlery pieces. If you are already wearing a ton of color, simple gold or silver pieces would complete the look. If you aren’t wearing to much color, go for a bold necklace! 
  • Hairstyles: your hair can also tramsform your outfit. High neckline- hair up. Low neckline- hair down. And if it is off the shoulder you can really go with anything but I  to curl my hair, bring it to a low side pony and throw on a matching bow. 

Here’s a few pictures from my last minute outfit that I hope will inspire you! My friend dressed up a gorgeous romper with a colorful necklace paired with blue hoops and shoes. My sister went for a simple little black dress and instead of going for a bold necklace she added a sparkly belt. Lastly, I took an off the shoulder top worn by Olivia Palermo, paired it with navy and white espadrilles, a J.Crew navy skirt, a navy bow, gold accessories, and a colorful coral clutch from DSW.

SPRING! Get out of the “I have nothing to wear” funk

Who’s ready for spring? California has been really weird lately with rain on some days and it being sunny on others. But even with the sun always comes a little bit of wind so it can be hard finding an outfit that will keep you from shivering but still look cute in the sun. Here’s some outfit ideas that will help you balance winter and summer.

Travel Guide: Ski, Snow, and STYLE

     Hey guys! This past week I was on vacation with my family at Deer Valley Ski Resort in Park City, Utah. Now before we begin lets just start by remembering that I live in San Francisco CALIFORNIA, so this change in weather was a serious shift. Packing for this trip was so chaotic because I could finally break out those old “perfect snow day outfits” off of Pinterest. Looking back, here are a few tip I found most helpful for dressing to colder temperatures, aka SNOW! (This California girl could not handle the cold😂) 


1. Bring hats and mittens. This is kind of a no brainer but some people (like my sister) sometimes forget. 

2. Hunter boots are super helpful in the snow and make great accessories with all of the sock options that you can buy off of the Hunter website! 

3. If you must wear ugg boots, at least match the color of your boots to your outfit

4. Sunglasses are helpful during the day if the sun is reflecting off of the bright snow😎

5. Leave your riding boots at HOME! (The leather may get ruined in the snow) 

6. Bring at least two big jackets. I like to bring obviously my ski jacket, an extra down jacket, and a Jcrew peacoat. 

*EXTRA TIP: a lot of the times the restaurants near these ski resorts will be completely booked so make reservations ahead of time!
