Color Block-out in BCBG Leggings

blockout

I pretty much just died and went to color block heaven.  These hot pants rocked it last night at the new Headquarters Media event in Seaport Village.  I needed something edgy and opted for this paneled pant as opposed to my basic black legging.. How boring.. Oh and not to mention, they made me feel really skinny.. love when that happens. Anyway, San Diego has definitely cooled down, I got used to that warm Maui sun on my skin.   I grabbed a cute cashmere black sweater to tone down the bold pattern.  I paired my spike loubis to add some spice and grabbed my go-to cross body to compliment the pop of red.   To complete my look I added bold sunnies and red haute lipstick.  Sweater weather, eat my heart out! <3

Downtown Dining Tip:

*For the taco crazed… I know you exist.  Thats one of the many things San Diego is known for.. Check out Puesto for a guilt free, savory taco at Puesto located in the Headquarters and check out their La Jolla location.  Feeling really naughty? Get the crab guacamole. Your welcome.

Aloha in Clover Canyon

All I can say is I’m so, soooo, sorry I’ve been so MIA.  I got the travel bug and kinda haven’t stopped! I’m definitely not complaining! Ok, so this last minute trip to Maui ended up being so relaxing.  Just a little FYI: Hawaii fashion really consists of a bikini and well, a bikini.. You really belong in the ocean or sun bathing with a Mai-Tai in hand…

I promised myself I’d have at least one cute night. Plus, I’ve been dying to wear my new Clover Canyon skirt from resort 2014…

I opted for a very chic yet played down look. Hawaii is so casual, so I went with a printed pencil skirt and spaghetti strap silk tank.
It felt like summer, so I wore my favorite laser cut nude pumps and a basic black bag.
I decided not to accessorize to avoid looking overdressed. Simplicity is key when wearing an extreme print. Don’t be one of those girls that just over does it. It’s like that lady who sprayed 5 sprays of perfume too many. YUCK!

If possible grab a statement skirt this spring/ summer. You will wear it with EVERYTHING. Clover Canyon some how gets it right every-time. Dump your drab pencil skirt and invest in something eye catching. Printed skirts are on everyone’s radar this spring. So get it while it’s haute!

-Hawaii packing tip-
*Pack extra swimsuits not extra outfits.
*If you have to, bring 1 pair of high heels.
*You won’t wear half of what you pack, so leave room in your suitcase for some gifts. My top 2 gifts to buy…  Maui babe bronzing lotion (it’s the best by far) and some chocolate covered macadamia nuts. A Maui must!
