I’m all about midi skirts lately. They are so sweet, elegant and can be styled in so many different ways. I made this in three of my favorite colors (blue, green and fuchsia) but this color and styling is probably my favorite of the bunch, a close tie to the blue and the green I think…I just can’t decide!! Which color is your favorite?




twoThe thing that made our wedding so special are the people. Having all of our family and friends there with so much love is something we are truly thankful for. It was the most beautiful day…to walk down the aisle (actually, very long flight of stairs) and for the first time that day, seeing the man I love, my better half, with tears of joy and a smile of an angel. Everything was just perfect from that moment on.

Nate and I wanted a cozy little wedding away from the city (he’s from NY and I’m from CA). Being on a budget, we wanted a venue that would allow us do a lot of our own decorations and personalization. The Huntcliff River Club in Sandy Springs, GA was the perfect pick for us. Beautifully situated next to the Chattanooga River, the ceremony playground was tucked away under four large 100-year-old Oak trees. Just the perfect amount of shade for a warm September day in Georgia two years ago. The reception was nested on the second floor inside the club house, surrounded by floor to ceiling windows overlooking the ceremony site and the river. It was so peaceful and serene, it was our little tree house.

We had a year to plan, and time flew by quicker than we thought! It started from finding a perfect venue and narrowing down all of our vendors, to creating all the little details such as our save the dates, the invitations, our cupcake tower, our favors, candy buffet, ceremony programs, dinner menus, escort cards, table numbers, and arranging all of the ceremony and reception flowers (what the heck were we thinking?!@). At times I was so overwhelmed and I wished we would have ran off to a small town somewhere in New Mexico to say our I Do’s….but looking back now, all the photos and memories made everything so much more special.

I have to say the best part of planning our wedding was bonding and learning how difficult one another can be and learning how to compromise. Nate will falsely accused me of  being obsessive compulsive but I have one word for him…Mr. Too-Helpful-Groomzilla. Together, we were a match made in wedding planning heaven. :)

I love my short shorts denim cut offs but sometimes it’s great to just kick back in loose fitting over-sized shorts. What’s awesome about these is they are loose and comfy yet sits snug on your waist. It’s so easy to throw on and run errands in or just lounge around the house. The best thing is I can put on a pair of heels and call it a night out!

I actually made these shorts for my booth at the SJ Jazz festival where I was a vendor (reviews and my opinion on that soon :)… Have you ever tried making something with the intention of selling but ended up keeping about 5-6-7-8 of them? Yeah, that’s kind of what happened here…But a girl can’t never have enough denim cut offs right?

Wore this outfit on date night with Nate last Friday to the movies and I love that it’s comfortable yet a little sexy at the same time.

When I’m not in the mood to get dressed up, these are my go-to jeans because it’s so comfortable yet I can still add a little something extra to the outfit with the right pairings. I love the tight fitting crop top because it’s perfect for balancing out the over-sized bottoms and a pair of heels adds a sexy vibe. By the way, we saw Fast & Furious. It was surprisingly good and worth seeing if you’re looking for a summer action flick with a bit of muscles thrown in. :) There are so many movies that I have to see this June. A few of my must-see are Man of Steel (drooling), World War Z and White House Down. Do you have a favorite? Hope you had a lovely weekend!

Casual Comfort





When it comes to accessories, I’m more of a silver or gold kinda gal but the contrasting colors of mint, coral and purple of this Chiara statement necklace from 2Hello Beautiful definitely caught my eye and I love how it adds just the perfect touch to my summer staples.

Speaking of summer staples, I’m loving the 2013 Summer collection from Spiegel, which are mostly on sale right now! I have my eyes this Ponte Taylor jumpsuit for day, cute floral one piece swimsuit for the beach, and this bright blue maxi skirt for everyday.

The best thing about coming back from a week stay in a tropical place is that I brought back the sunshine. Or at least that’s what I like to tell myself because it’s been unbelievably warm in this little part of town (80 degrees +). With the weather heating up, my favorite go to pieces are these DIY cut off shorts that I made from old vintage levis, a comfy tank, crop moto that’s just too perfect for day and night and of course a hat for those uncooperative hair days! Hope you’re having a good hump day! xo
