Coin Necklace

Hi, everyone! I am pleased to announce that I am an ambassador for Ettika Jewelry! This is super exciting for me because they are the first Los Angeles based company that I have collaborated, with since moving! Ettika’s boho-chic jewelry is inspired by the sunny California lifestyle, and is sure to brighten any outfit. Their pieces are stackable, and perfect for the fun-loving, spirited fashionista! When I opened my Ettika packaging, I was beyond happy with the quality of my coin necklace. The design is beautifully crafted and it’s gems sparkle as I move. Lately I have been on a jewelry kick. The more, the better. So I couldn’t wait to pair my new coin necklace with my silver teardrop earrings and bangles.

How To Style a Casual LBD

LBD

Hello, loves! Today I wanted to talk about a staple item in every girl’s closet, the trusty little black dress (or LBD). The LBD makes it’s mark by being the safety net in your closet. Have an event and you don’t know what to wear? Your LBD will be right there waiting for you, like a great BFF. But just because your LBD is (most often) a safe bet, does not mean that it needs to be a boring outfit.

Yesterday was a beautiful spring day, here in California! After our morning jog, my boyfriend and I attended church and then went on a double date for brunch. It was an all around beautiful Sunday! But that morning, I found myself in one of those tricky styling situations. I wanted to be dressed up enough for church, but casual enough for a meal with friends. That’s when my LBD came to mind! I grabbed my little black dress, made from cotton, and began to style it.

The key to styling a casual look with your LBD is to embellish. A LBD is just a plain black dress, until you make it your own. So add some flare! Personally, I love anything and everything bohemian, so I added my necklace from Nigeria and some large beaded hoop earrings. Adding your favorite jewelry will really help represent your true style.

Next, I love wearing black with cognac. I think that the black really makes the cognac pop! So I threw on my favorite gladiator sandals and matched them with my purse. These two pieces, along with my jewelry and denim jacket, brightened up my outfit and made it great for Spring. I wore my denim jacket because I love to layer, and wanted to take away from how tight the dress was. Finally, I threw on my REKS Optics sunnies, and was ready to go!

So make sure to stay true to you when you’re styling your LBD casual look. The key is to feel comfy and confident!

Current Obsession: Denim Skirts

Happy Monday, loves! I hope that all of those who celebrate Easter, had a wonderful holiday! This was my first holiday away from my family. Even though I missed them so much, we had a great Sunday.  My amazing boss and co-workers had Alejandro and I over for their family Easter lunch. I could not be more thankful for them. (More on my experiences at work on Thursday!)

Lately I have been loving my denim skirt! I love that it buttons all the way up the front, and is high-rise. I bought this skirt from H&M last year, so I wanted to provide you with a few links to similar skirts. (Click on the pictures below.)
