Heading to a chic event? Well then this is the outfit for you! I was off to the Promises to Kids event hosted by Jimmy Choo to support foster children of San Diego. Incredible charity to get involved with. Click here to learn more.
I needed a fashion forward look that kept a professional feel. I knew clients of mine would be attending this event so I layered on as much as I could to be my own walking billboard. lol. Blush is just melting my heart this season. I’m more and more drawn to blush pink as a neutral color that compliments EVERY hue! I had this pencil skirt and crop top already in mind but didn’t really know what jacket to wear. I’m not one who does “conservative” too well but I definitely know how to keep it classy. Thankfully this beautiful lace/ leather combo jacket arrived this afternoon so I tried it. I love the way the jacket made the outfit! Naturally, I rocked the heck out of it and grabbed a blush pink clutch to compliment the soft undertones in the jacket. I was really feeling my new Gucci Ursula pumps but thought It would be offensive to not wear something to support the brand endorsing the event. I changed into a white strappy Jimmy Choo pump and was off to shop for a cause!
Spring time has FINALLY arrived. Ahhhhh and I’m so OBSESSED!!! Shower me in NEON please!!! There’s definitely some Do’s and Don’ts when it comes to rocking this ultra vibrant hue.
DO sport more than one shade of neon, keep it tasteful babes. Choose one shade of neon in an over the top statement jacket and accent with that color. I pulled a neon yellow hue in the print of my Equipment floral bomber jacket and made my shoes and handbag do all the talking.
DO tone down your eye candy outfit with neutral undertones. White and neon is HUGE right now. It’s crisp, clean and cool.
DO Try a light blue denim with your bright hues. It’s an amazing color to compliment neon as opposed to something safe like white.
DO opt for neon leather if you are in search of the perfect “summer” bag. You don’t have to worry about staining a durable perforated neon bag as opposed to any and all white leather bags. You will thank me after you get the first stain on your bright white baby.
DON’T think Neon is a one-season wonder, so buy with an ‘all year round ‘ mentality.
Lastly, for the love of the fashion gawds, PLEASE DON’T wear neon with black. It’s a big time fashion NO, NO!!

Gawd I love this beautiful city I live in!!! San Diego, america’s finest! I don’t make it downtown as much as I’d like… (I tend to stay in my little La Jolla bubble). But when I do head to the Gaslamp, I always make an extra effort to wear something cool, interesting and different. I picked this Donna Mizani romper because I didn’t know if dinner at BANG BANG would end with dancing at BANG BANG. LOL oh, BTW, have you guys tried this new San Diego hot spot???? You’ve got to check it out. Pretty AMAZE! Now, this little romper has been a staple in my wardrobe. LA designer Donna Mizani just gets it. The originator of the infamous cut-out dress has really evolved into a beautiful, sexy, easy to wear line. I tried this romper on and knew it needed to be MINE. The long billow sleeves can be worn at wrist length or pulled up to a 3/4. The high-cut runner short adds sex appeal without over doing it. Every girl should own this. It’s that no-brainer, feel good, look good piece. I added this cool BCBG floral jacket to make the look more dinner appropriate. I’m still OBSESSED with my Givenchy bag, and the pops of red flowers in the jacket made for a more fluid look. I grabbed my comfy Fendi booties which added some edginess! The last touch, my Lanvin inspired necklace I scored in NYC. Don’t worry, I contacted the manufacturer so you guys can buy one too! Oh, and the best part, they’re only $60 which beats the heck out of the $1000 Lanvin price tag! YIKES! I’ll be posting a “where to buy” link and one lucky reader will win one in next month’s giveaway!!! Yes, ma’am I said GIVEAWAY!! ;)
