Derby Style… 

Dress | Shoes [similar 1 or 2]| Hat [similar] | Sunnies | Jacket | Choker

In a not so surprising surprising way,  my first week in California went somewhat like how you would daydream it would – but on not so grand of a scale, and that’s only if you consider going to a Kentucky Derby party in a mansion on a hill in Santa Barbara a not majorly intense scale in the grand scheme of all things California. For the little Rhody girl that I am, it was pretty grand. It only took me a few minutes to get rolling around the floor in my dress with a cute puppy, and then in the next hour tucking my dress into a pair of shorts to go trampoline-ing with the kids. Small town girl in a glam world at its finest. Another shocker to many – this gorgeous dress is from Forever 21. Beautiful, am I right? Everything seems to just be much more beautiful here in Santa Barbara. I’m pretty content with it, to say the least. I’ve managed to wear this Ettika choker with just about every outfit. I can glam it up, for instance with this dress or wear it with a beachy look. the possibilities are endless!

p.s. – It’s official, my hair is out of control. I’ve just come to embrace it!

Mood Board/Inspo…

This weeks mood board/inspo’ vibes are all about casual denim and simple, natural beauty. I like simplicity a lot when it comes to style, life, and pictures. There’s something s intriguing about an insanely beautiful picture that is just so… well, simple.

That 70s Outfit….


  
  
  
  

Top: Forever 21

Jeans: Forever 21

Shoes: Forever 21 (similar here)

Sunnies: Rayban

Winter is gone here and it barely ever came! One blizzard of snow and now we’re basking in the sunshine of 80 degree weather, crop tops, and bright sunglasses all over again. The 70s trend is still holding strong, and I’ve stumbled across the most chic high waisted flare legged pants and cute little striped tee to match. Not to mention these thick, clompy shoes to pull the look together. I feel like a modern day Mila Kunis in That 70s Show and it’s a field day of fun.

Adore Me Lingerie…

Being such a tremendous lover of style has its pros and cons, one of those being feeling absolutely horrendous about having a unstylish slob like day wearing sweats on the couch, as I currently am writing this post 😛 but there’s one thing I do know for sure and it’s how to be chic and feel sexy, and it’s by incorporating lingerie into my every day style. I know… that sounds a little crazy, right?  But yes, I’m serious… Here’s a look of at an outfit lay from my closet, incorporating this gorgeous corset….


As you can see, the white lace up Emma & Sam shirt travels down pretty far, and what better piece to wear under it than this nude & floral bra? I wear it under white tees and other see-through pieces I have. It’s stunning, chic, and makes me feel so incredibly sexy! And you should feel sexy every day too!See more ways to style lingerie into your everyday wardrobe on Adore Me’s Instagram, and find some amazing lingerie pieces you can buy over there as well!

 

 

 

All Tied Up…


Top: Emma & Sam (sold out… similar here)

Bottoms: Tommy Hilfiger (similar here)

Sneakers: Topshop (similar here)

Heels: Aldo (last season)

 

I’m so much in love with this Emma & Sam shirt, that I bought two in different colors! It was reduced tremendous amounts and was selling out like crazy! I’ve had my eye on it for months and months, so luckily I was able to get it before it was gone. I figured I would post it with the two different types of shoes; going comfortably casual with sneakers and a bit more glam with the heels. The choker I made myself by cutting up an old black tee, and the Tommy jeans I also ripped myself, so instead I listed you an amazing similar looking pair from Missguided that I adore. Ciao!
