Hi guys! Happy Tuesday! Did you have a good long weekend? Mine was so so fab! We went to Vegas Saturday-Sunday and then went to one of our fave total hole in the wall Mexican restaurants on Sunday night, then had a fab + super laid back Memorial day at home yesterday. I took a little social media break and it was SO refreshing! Not that I don’t love seeing everyone’s pics and what everyone is up to, because I do, it’s just really nice to take a little time to myself and reality too!

Today I am sharing why we love Vegas and what we love to do there as I get tons of messages asking what my favorite hotel and restaurants are. To start (and sorry if you have been following my blog for awhile and have heard all of this!), our go-to and most favorite hotel is most definitely the Wynn. I have stayed at probably every hotel on the strip and I honestly will not stay anywhere but the Wynn anymore. The hotel itself is so well manicured and taken care of. Just the lobby area alone is gorgeous! It’s like a little wonderland of amazingness. The casino is really nice, clean and not too smokey. The scene is definitely more mature, but that’s why we love it. Of course if you are going to Vegas for a bachelorette or some sort of party, it’s fun to stay at the Cosmo or Aria where you get a much younger crowd and more vibrant bar scene. Back to the Wynn, the rooms are insanely spacious and so pretty! If you go on their website you can see, but the decor is all cream and white and just so nice. The spa is super luxe and then there are tons of fab restaurants and bars.

One of most favorite things to do is going to the Parlor bar right near the lobby right when we arrive. It’s situated so that you can people watch in all directions (which in Vegas is total must!). As for food, Sinatra is definitely our fave spot to eat at the Wynn. It’s Italian and seriously SO good. Plus they treat you like total gold when you are dining there! Outside of the Wynn restaurants we love for dinner: Nobu (the one at Cesar’s), STK at the Cosmo, Beauty + Essex also at the Cosmo, Sushi Roku, Aquaknox and Mesa Grill.

Other than eating, we love to be silly and play all the fun slots. Britney Spears, Michael Jackson, Dolly Parton and Pitbull are our top 4 favorites as they all play the best music! I literally won $300 this past weekend playing Dolly and jamming out to “9 to 5”. Hilarious, right? Obviously shopping is another one of my fave things to do there as the options are insane! And our last thing we love to do is ride the the new huge ferris wheel, the Linq High Roller. We have been twice and it’s just so cool. It’s only 30 minutes and you get the most fab views of Vegas as well as free drinks the whole ride. It’s super cool and definitely worth doing if you haven’t!

I share all of this because I think Vegas has such a terrible reputation and most people think you only go there to party like crazy. Our version of Vegas is so mellow, but still so fun! Of course it’s also fab to do Vegas the traditional way, but I really think our way is best way! A couple cocktails, a nice dinner, some slots, maybe go dance a little at a club and still be in bed by 1am in a nice hotel room….basically the best date night ever! Feel free to message me if you have any of other questions, but I think I covered it!!

Below are all the details of our looks from Saturday night. I am OBSESSED with this For Love and Lemons dress…..it’s frilly, flirty and so fun!! And this blush colored Topman blazer that Colby is wearing is SO end all for Summer!!

Have a good day friends! I am trying to get back to reality after our super fab weekend…..it’s always so hard!

Hi guys! How are you today? I am fab as it’s already mid-week, I got my hair brightened up yesterday and we are off on a quick little Memorial Day weekend getaway on Saturday! Our weather has been amazing and it’s gotten me so excited for Summer.

One of my favorite things to wear during Summer is a little white dress as it just epitomizes warmer temps and vacay! This one, from Self Portrait, is basically my allll time fave. I am always a lover of Self Portrait’s intricate and gorgeous pieces and this dress is both of those. I love the fabulous lace detailing, the cinched waist and of course the pockets! It’s super girly and feminine with just the right amount of edgy personality. For this look I dressed it up with these Chloe heels but I also love pairing it with a simple flat sandal for a more casual look. When I was linking this to my liketoknow.it account, I found this amazing Express dupe that I am also in love with (only $49!!)

Because this dress is so fabulous on it’s it own, I kept my accessories neutral and simple. This mauve-y colored Valentino to kick up the edginess a bit and these fun white Le Spec sunnies to me were the only thing this look needed.

With all the fun Summer soirees and parties quickly approaching I rounded up some more of my fave LWD options below.

I hope you all have a great Wednesday! I am working on some looks today for a shoot on Friday and am having dinner with some friends tonight, both of which I am excited about!

All pieces of this look:

Happy shopping, xo, Caro

Happy mid-week, friends! I had the best weekend with my sweet momma (so many yummy meals and lots of good catching up) and have been getting organized this week. The weather has been so lame these past few days here and I am looking forward to some hopefully warmer weather this weekend. I can’t believe it’s already mid- May and almost Summer! I love this time of year, but just wish it would all slow down a bit!

Today I am talking about my current obsession: boyfriend cutoffs. They are everywhere and I must admit at first I was a skeptic, but I think like all trneds, it just takes finding the right fit. I found these, from Moussy, on revolve.com just love the super distressing and the high waist. I think the key with this style is to get them more fitted at your waist so they still come off more feminine. I of course think it’s essential to throw on a fab belt (like my Gucci pearl one), but you dont have to. I just think a belt adds another element of femininity and of course some much needed personality.

I am also all about the the fact that yellow is huge this season. I am forever a lover of yellow as it’s just such a happy color and can be a great neutral. I fell in love with this dotted House of Harlow blouse on revolve.com and knew it would be even better in real life. I love love this top! It’s such a gorgeous shade of marigold yellow and it’s such a wearable fit. It looks great with white denim too!

Another way to keep your boyfriend cutoffs girly is to dress them up with a fab heel like these Valentino rockstuds. Of course you could go with a bit more simple wedge, but I love and prefer the contrast of mega-girliness and laid back masculinity. If I was wearing a simple tank or tee and wanted to go super casual, I would go with a bow slide (like these) or a gladiator sandal since both of those are again more feminine.

I just love the ease of this style of shorts and it really is such a nice switch up from all the super short options that are out. Here are some more I have been eyeing:

All the elements of this look (and a similar top and pair of shoes):

Have the most fabulous Wednesday! I am off to lunch with some girlfriends today and am just really hoping the sun comes out (I don’t know how people in Seattle or the PNW do it, grey days are no fun!)

Happy shopping, xo, Caro

 

Hi guys! It’s Thursday which means tomorrow is FRIDAY! All the yes, right? Not that this week has been long, it actually has flown by, but like I mentioned yesterday I am just so looking forward to this weekend. My sister is coming down from LA and my mom will be here all weekend, so we have some fun dinners planned and lots of catching up (and maybe a lil shopping too!!)

I am so excited to share this look as I am totally in love love love with this Stylekeepers top (it comes in black too!!) and wish I could wear it everyday! Its the epitome of girly and just so much fun. I wore it with a white jean skirt last weekend, which was fab, but I do love it most with a great pair of skinny jeans (as nothing is better than a white top and essential denim)! These Moussy skinnies I am wearing are definitely one of my most faves as they are distressed and cropped to perfection (I am so into cropped denim lately!!) (I also have these Levi’s that are not as spendy and a super similar fit)

I wanted this look to be date night ready, so I went with my rockstud Valentino heels to dress it up a bit. I live in these! I know they are pricey, but I think they are a such a great buy as they go with everything (skirts, shorts, rompers, denim, dresses…everything!) and they literally give life to any look. I find myself wanting to wear them nonstop and have to make myself switch it up! Here is a great similar pair that aren’t as pricey too.

Whenever I do a white top/denim or black top/denim look I always have to have a pop of color, so I added on this pink Gucci for fun. I felt like this super girly top needed a super girly bag to complete the look! I kept it simple accessory wise with this leopard watch and these super old school aviator ray-bans.

This top just makes me SO happy. It screams “I am ready for fun”, right? Even though I am total dress wearing girl, there really isn’t anything better than a great top and great pair of jeans for a night out. Below are all the pieces of this look.

Wishing you all a most fab day and weekend! If you are a momma, I hope you get spoiled and have a happy day on Sunday! I am off to get ready for pics tomorrow and then to spend the weekend with my fam.

Happy shopping, xo, Caro

Hi guys! Happy Wednesday! I am so energized this week as I am working on some looks for Friday and my mom is coming out this weekend! I could not be more excited to get to spend Mother’s day with her, so I am just feeling so happy!

We all know I love a pretty party dress and this one today is one of my ALL time faves. It really doesn’t get any dreamier than this BCBG watercolor printed dress! I adore the subtle ruffle detailing, the amazing flutter sleeves and the fun deep V. It really is just the most fab option for any wedding or soiree. Now on it’s own this dress is so lovely, but in true me form, I had to spice it up a bit, so I added on my pearl adorned Gucci belt. I just love mixing edgier pieces with feminine ones! It creates a look with so much more personality.

I went with simple black stiletto heels from Stuart Weitzman and this Valentino crossbody to keep the look classic. When styling a dressier look, I love to keep the accessories mellow if other parts of the look are louder. I use this Valentino crossbody so much for going out and dressier looks! I have it in another color and find that it’s just the right size and also looks more polished than a clutch (plus crossbodys are life, right?) (Sunnies, criss cross ring, lip stick)

I am always all about a fun, feminine dress for Spring and Summer! I feel like when the temperature is warm its the perfect excuse to really embrace being a woman and to just wear dresses all the time. Here are some more fun ones I have been eyeing:

I hope you all have such a fab day today! I have to work on details for my looks all day.  I should do a blog post one time showing how I create each look as it really is a process! I never just throw something on last minute, but instead I really try to put thought into each one. And that is even how I dress in the morning- I just love a fully finished outfit! Anyways, happy Wednes!!
