HAPPY FRIDAY, friends!! Woohoo! So sorry for my lack of posts this week! I have been playing catch up after attending the Reward Style conference in Dallas last weekend. I have to tell you, I was SO nervous to attend! I literally started getting anxious and worried over it weeks before as I did not know any of the other bloggers who were attending. I had of course conversed with many over Instagram, but I had never met any in real life. It shouldn’t have made me get so worked up, but it’s always so intimidating putting yourself out there! I forced myself outside my little Orange County bubble and am SO glad I did. I met so many wonderful new friends and learned so much! Plus it was just so cool to be surrounded by other fashion lovers. I was totally in my element and am so grateful to have been invited.

Anyways, today is all about this most fun Show Me Your Mumu tie front romper. I fell in love with this little number the minute I saw it online as the colors are just divine. It definitely has a tropical feel to it, which I love. The flutter sleeves and touches of pink are just so fab, right? It’s super comfy and such a great piece to throw on for any weekend fun.

I love rompers because they a the focal piece of a look and therefore your accessories don’t have to be over the top. That is why I went with this neutral Gucci bag and these neutral Valentino wedges (available in cream here) with this look. I also added on these Kendra Scott earrings, this Valentino bracelet and these Le Spec sunnies. All of which are pretty plain, but add some pops of fun.

Rompers are forever a staple in my Spring and Summer closet as they are just easy and always cute. Now that the temps are consistently warm, they are a perfect option for any get together. Here are lots more that I am eyeing:

I hope you guys have a fabulous weekend! After spending last weekend apart, Colby and I are so excited to date night tonight (we are going to Bandera…yum!) and then we are double dating with some faves at the newly opened Nobu here. I am SO over the top thrilled about this opening! If you know me (slash if you read this blog (ahem Vegas!!)) you know I love love love Nobu! I just think the quality of their sushi and fish is perfection. I will be sure to share on stories and report back on how it is!

Happy weekending, happy shopping and xoxo, Caro

Hi guys! Happy Tuesday! I hope you all had a fab holiday weekend and are having a good week so far. My Easter was so dreamy and my week is off to a fab start!  

Even though 90% of the time I am super girly, there are days when outfits like the one in this post today are necessary. One of my easy go-to’s is always a comfy Rails button down, skinny jeans and then a simple (but still fun) mini heel. This season I am loving stripes, so when I found this blue and white one (from Rails) it’s was an easy must-have. Such a great piece to have for Spring and Summer as it looks so fun with white denim, denim skirts and shorts too. For this look I paired it with this denim from Paige. Perfectly distressed, super skinny, fabulously high waisted and a nice dark wash all add up to make these my all time faves.

Because I refuse to let a look go too simple, I went with these insanely fun leopard heels from Alexander Wang. You guys! How fab are these? The cutout block heel is next level and they are super comfy. I love a heel like this for running around!

For bag, I wanted something kinda preppy to play off the shirt, so I went with this wooden one from Cult Gaia. How cool is this thing? It is such a statement piece and it looks so fab with Spring + Summery dresses too. I added on my skinny Gucci belt for some sass and went with old school aviator Ray-bans for a classic finish.

Simple button downs are always the best to have in your wardrobe as you can throw them on with anything and instantly looked finished. With that, stripes are always in fashion and are a fun way to make your everday look a bit more fun. Here are some more fun striped tops I am eyeing:

Hope you guys have a great day today! I am busying around as tomorrow I am off on an exciting adventure! Eep! More details to come later this week!

Hi guys! Happy Wednesday! It’s been a fabulous week so far and I am so excited that it’s already the middle of the week! The weather has been amazing here and I am just feeling so grateful for so much lately. I don’t know if it’s Spring that has me all heart eyed over life, but something is in the air!

Today is all about basics and how I like to elevate them. I am definitely not a simple jeans and tee sort of girl, but I do love to go casual every now and then. My version of dressing down is taking a couple of standard pieces and adding some bits of flare to kick the look up a notch. This outfit today epitomizes this way of dressing.

This super plain, but totally fun Liv poplin top caught my eye on Shopbop with it’s ruffled detailing on the neckline and sleeves. So full of life, right? The bodice is totally oversized making it super comfy and easy. I paired it with these essential jeans from AGoldE (wear them alllll the time!!). If I had to rank my denim, these would definitely be in my top 5 as the fit is so great. A higher waist and a cropped leg, two aspects that I love! The shorter length makes them great to wear with a fun high heel or just as fab with a sneaker for running around.

To elevate this look, I went with these super fab tie ankle heels from Alexandre Birman. I love how sassy these are!! They are really comfy and the leather is super plush. I found a couple of good lower priced options that I linked below. Just for a little more personality, I added on this star adorned (how fun?!) belt from Saint Laurent. I am obsessed with this western inspired accessory and honestly find myself wearing it all the time. I love that’s skinny and I am so into silver hardware lately. No look would be complete without a fab bag and because it’s Spring, I went with this studded Saint Laurent. You guys, this bag!!! It’s insanely fabulous, right? I love the size, I love the studs and I am all about the white. So fresh for Spring! (it’s sold out, but available in plain white here and here) I linked some other white bags I am loving below.

To finish off this look, I grabbed these girly sunnies from Freda Banana. The pearls match my bag perfectly and just add the right amount of fun! Just by adding a fun heel, a unexpected belt and fresh bag, I took this look from being plain jane to being sassy sara! I am not saying that it’s not ok to wear simple options, I just think it’s great to add on a few touches that make the look a little less drab and alot more fab!

Here are some similar options to these pieces in this look that I am loving:

Have a great day, friends! I am off to my annual womanly doctors appointment (never fun, but you have to do it, right?) and then am having dinner with a bestie tonight. Hope you all enjoy yours!!

HI guys! Happy Thursday! So close to the weekend and soo excited about it. A quick post today as I am headed down to San Diego to do some pics this afternoon, but I wanted to share this fabulous Self Portrait dress as well as a round up of all the dresses I am loving this season.

I am a huge fan of Self Portrait as the pieces are always so well made and so intricate. I love wearing clothes that feel fancy, that are worth the price and that look luxe and this brand encompasses those things. The minute I saw this pink eyelet lace and one shouldered dramatic dress, I had to have it. It’s literally all my dreams come true!! It even has pockets! I have a wedding in July for one of my college favorites and I cannot wait to wear this look. I love this color for Spring and Summer as it’s so light and feminine! I wanted to let this beauty have her moment, so I kept it simple by going monotone with my accessories. I paired it with my mauve-y Gucci belt, this Saint Laurent clutch and a nude heel (similar here as these are last season). Other details: nails, sunnies, earrings 

I LOVE a good party and I also LOVE to dress up, so I thought it would be fun to share my fave options. Whether it a be a simple get together with friends, Easter, an engagement party, a charity event, a wedding or a fancy date night, any of these would be fun choices.

Wishing you all a happy day and happy weekend! I am so excited to catch up on some sleep and chill out with my boys this weekend. Hope you guys enjoy yours!

happy shopping! xo, Caro

Hi guys! Happy Wednesday! How are you guys? I am fab, even though my Zags lost on Monday night! I have never been into basketball like I was these past few weeks and it was so fun to root on a team, but dang it was also such a let down when they lost! I so understand my husband now though. I used to think he was such a hot mess with his sports watching etiquette (aka yelling at the TV, pacing around and just being ridiculous!), but I did alllll of that and more! Too funny, right? The only reason that I even cared was because like I mentioned in my last post, if they won I was 100% going to buy this amazing Chanel bag. So now that bag is haunting me and I am back to hating sports!

Ok, back to fashion! Today is all about this fun, super Springy look that I love! This one shouldered Endless Rose top is one of my current go-to’s as the color is so fab and the ruffle detailing is just so fun. It looks so good with white or dark denim, but for this look I went with these jean shorts from One Teaspoon (these run really big fyi, go down a size). I love how frayed these are! They are so cute with just a white tee and flops or with an off the shoulder top and wedges. I pretty much live in jean shorts during the week as they are just so easy to throw on and comfy in.

 

I was feeling flirty in this bright red, so I wanted to dress up this look a bit. I found these super fun clear and neutral suede Steve Madden heels on Revolve and just had to have them! SO in love!! I love that they tie around the ankle…so girly + fab! Best part is that they are only $100. Keeping with the neutral tones, I went with this Gucci crossbody and otherwise super minimal accessories (here are my sunnies, earrings, watch).

Spring is ALL about the ruffle detailing and statement top (as we know) + this top encompasses those two things perfectly! Such an easy piece to throw on with simple denim and look cute. You could so belt this top too if you wanted a more tailored look. Here are some other similar tops that I am eyeing:

Hope you all have a really great day today! I am doing a bunch of looks tomorrow and am stressing trying to get them all ready (the day before photo shoots I am always as mess. I usually have last minute tweeks/alterations/ideas for the looks, so I am always running around like a chicken with my head cut off!) I can’t wait for some weekend!

Happy shopping, xo, Caro
