LA Tourism 101: Santa Monica Pier

Hey Fashionistas! One of my many favorite places to visit in So Cal is the famous Santa Monica Pier. There is tons to do, from the carnival games and rides to shopping on the promenade. And of course it goes without saying, you’re surrounded by a beautiful ocean view.

Who says you can’t be fashionable at a theme park?

Hey Fashionistas! Yesterday, I enjoyed the day out with my family at Universal Studios. It was my first time there and I loved it! The Studio Tour was one of my favorite attractions. The weather was absolutely perfect, a cool 88 degrees! Oh and best believe just because you’re at a theme park doesn’t mean you can’t be fashionable. (Snap, Snap)

My H&M “happy” dress!

Happy Tuesday, Fashionistas! In today’s post I’m wearing one of my all time favorite dresses from H&M. I call it my happy dress. The bright pattern instantly puts me in a good mood. I usually wear it as a cover up for the pool or beach, but today I went ahead and switched it up!

Outfit Ideas: Styling Up a Simple Tee!

Hey Fashionistas! Today’s my first day on vacation with my family in California. Being that I’m in Mickey’s home town (technically it’s Anaheim but LA will do) it’s only right I show him some love. I had fun dressing up my casual character tee.

I Love My Ray-Bans!

Hey Fashionistas! Happy Thursday… so close to the wonderful weekend! For today’s outfit of the day, I’m wearing a special gift from my bridal shower. Sure, it was almost five months ago, but I always think of that amazing day when I wear my Ray-Bans. You could say it was a odd gift for a shower present, but it was actually perfect! I had been eyeing the glasses for months and my awesome family went ahead and snagged them for me. I ended up going to Costa Rica on my honeymoon, so they tied in perfectly. Thanks Aunt Lauri & Gabby! <3

The Comfiest Pants!

Hey Fashionistas! I hope everyone had a fab weekend. Mine was spent hanging out with friends in Kentucky. I was able to relax and wear the comfiest pants out there. There is truly nothing like a sweet pair of lounge pants. I’m especially fond of my palozza pants from Windsor. I love the fun tribal pattern and silky feel!
