Black, White, and Pink

cover

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!

Mellow Yellow

MELLOW YELLOW

Clearly I’m nuts for neon and OVERLY excited for Summer fashion.  One staple I always recommend EVERY girl to have in her wardrobe… A classic pencil skirt.  Typically I stick with black, but this white little number was screaming my name.  There’s something about wearing a pencil skirt in a non traditional way that says style…. Be experimental, pick a chic sweater but make sure not to swallow up the skirt.   And wear LOTS of color!  Mix n’ Match, it’s the cool thing to do!

I loved this cable knit mellow yellow ombre sweater that I layered over an ivory crop top.  It kept this look crisp and cool.  If you’re planning to layer on a sweater with your pencil, make sure its lightweight and breathable.  No sweating PLEASE!!! Layer light. Defeats the whole purpose of an effortless look if you’re peeling off your layers.  Try a complimentary pump.  It doesn’t need to be matchy-matchy, just something that belongs in your fashion story.  The shoes were flirting with me so I slipped into them, and completed my look with a white acrylic bag. If you are contemplating buying a neon bright shoe, do it with confidence.  Trust me, you will create outfits you never knew possible by adding some bold feet candy!  Dont take fashion too seriously. Break the rules and most importantly, have fun with your wardrobe!

** Fashion Tip **

When wearing white: Invest in a nude color spanx.  You never know how sheer the white fabric is.  Spanx not only help with hiding your muffin top but they help avoid panty bunching.

If you simply can’t wear a spanx, (you people totally exist) lol Then buy a seamless panty.  ”Commando” makes an incredible nude seamless panty.  You will get a big THANK YOU from  the girl behind you when you’re pretty pink panties aren’t showing because you listened to me and wore the proper undergarments.

Yay to fashion tips!!

Springtime Casual in Equipment Floral Bomber Jacket

SPRINGTIME CASUAL THE CHAMPAGNE BLONDE

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!!

Welcome to the Jungle in Clover Canyon Amazon Skirt

THE CHAMPAGNE BLONDE 2014 SPRING CLOVER CANYON

Welcome home to me!  After an AMAZING, but cold trip to Europe, I couldn’t wait to rock a warm weather look.  I picked the most tropical/jungle style I could find in my crazy closet. Which brings me to another point, WOW has Fashion transformed over the last 30 years, especially for women.  I love that I can wear this over-the-top Clover Canyon Amazon skirt paired with an oversized sweater, bold pumps and be ready for a full days work.  As I have said before, my style is very different from most.  When it comes to dressing up, there’s just one thing I’m not willing to compromise, my comfort.  Sorry babes, I refuse to obide by the old saying “pain is beauty”.  F* that.  So, today I had a hip hugging skirt on and a fitted tank was definitely not in the cards, so I grabbed a comfy oversized sweater to give my style a more laid back feel.  Because I’m in an industry where image can make or break your business, I opted for a classic Chanel pump to clarify my otherwise confusing look.  I was ready for a client filled day while not compromising my comfort.  San Diego, I missed you so! <3 <3 <3
