Dress: Guess by Marciano, Shoes: ShoeMint, Clutch: Style&co, Ring: Kate Spade

A couple of weeks ago I had my college version of “prom.” My school planned a dance on a yacht and since it was during prom season I of course treated it like a real senior prom, minus the over the top glitz and glamour dress. Instead I wanted something classy and elegant yet still very modern. I found this dress at the Guess by Marciano store and it was love at first sight. (It was the first dress I tried on when I went shopping, like when does that ever happen?) I fell in love with the material because it was thick and hugged my shape perfectly. Since being on a boat is always really chilly the long sleeves were a major plus because I wouldn’t have to worry about carrying a coat. Wearing a dress with cutouts was kind of a huge step for me. I tend to dress a little more on the conservative side but these cutouts weren’t very revealing. This dress allowed me to show just enough skin while still being pretty covered up. I of course wore my amazing ShoeMint heels. I danced for like two hours straight in these suckers. Seriously, thank you ShoeMint!!!

Here are two pictures from that night. Sorry the photo quality is terrible, iPhone cameras at night just don’t work well together. And yes, this is my boyfriends blog debut! Meet Kevin (:

My best friends older sister got married last weekend, which kinda felt like my older sister was getting married. It was a beautiful backyard country wedding, a wedding that looked straight out of Pinterest. I wore this dress, which I bought a while back from one of my favorite boutiques in Downtown Brea, SUO. They carry pieces that are really unique and I feel like I am leaving with my own little gem every time I leave their store.  I fell in love with this dress for various reasons, such as the coral color and beautiful lace detailing in the front. The loose sleeves and short length gave it a 60’s vibe that was different from any other dress I’ve worn before. I paired the dress with my new Appolina ShoeMint Heels. They were surprisingly comfortable for such tall heels which means I totally scored with these! I kept the hair and accessories very simple because I wanted the dress and shoes to be the main focus. Most importantly though, I had the pleasure of witnessing the start of a beautiful marriage. Congratulations Katie and Aaron!


I’m Back

Oh my gosh! I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I am to start blogging again. So much has happened since my last post. Here are just the highlights…

1. I turned 21!  I celebrated with close friends and family which was absolute perfection.

2. I guess you can say I am now officially a senior in college. Umm, that’s crazy!

3. And get ready for this one… I am now a social media intern for BeachMint. This has been a dream of mine for almost two years. I fell in love with their company right away because they were innovative and worked with some of my favorite celebrities. Since I don’t go to a fashion school or a major university I knew I had to work hard to stand out as much as possible, and it turns out I didn’t need a fashion school or fancy college name to get the internship. I did exactly what people say… if you want something bad enough you have to work for it. And that’s exactly what I did.

Now let me talk about my outfit. I thought it was only appropriate to debut my new favorite shorts for my first post since my long hiatus. I had expressed in this post how badly I wanted polka-dot shorts and luckily I found these amazing Lauren Conrad shorts, on sale! It was pretty much meant to be. Although I have worn them casually I decided to dress them up with a buttoned down chambray and nude strappy heels. Then there is my laptop bag which has been ideal for my internship and not to mention school. It just adds that final touch to complete the outfit.
