What a way to kick off the summer! Did everyone have an amazing fourth?! I stayed local and I’m so happy I did. La Jolla was beautiful, packed with pretty people and a whole lot of red, white N’ blue. With a holiday weekend comes busy, long days, which I wouldn’t trade for the world!!! But, boy am I excited for a little RnR.
I’m heading for Cancun this week and cannot wait to lounge pool side, work on my tan with a cocktail in hand! In the mean time, I had to take advantage of this incredible July weather. La Valencia is one of my fave places to chill and have a stay-cation. I decided to meet girlfriends for a little cocktail hour and to watch the sunset.
Because it’s impossible to beat the heat, I decided to wear an easy breezy romper. I’m obsessing over fuchsia right now. It’s such an inviting color. Paired with a neutral hue, this fuchsia combo screams “take me somewhere haute!” Ok, so apart from my crush on fuchsia, I have been mixing my handbags and shoes to purposely NOT match. Try a busy multi colored bag. Pick a color in the bag, even if its extremely faint and match your shoes with it. As you can see, my clutch wasn’t what you would expect. I played on the faint blush hue in the bag to match my nude pumps and compliment the undertone in my romper. I completed my look with a silver bangle to match my silver bag. Now, cocktail time! Wahoo.
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!! ;)
