Two-Piece Chic In Chambray

This next look is not exactly a dress – it’s more like a maxi skirt with a crop top. However, when the top and bottom match (or complement one another), it’s often referred to as a two-piece dress.  This outfit didn’t come as a set, but I knew the items would pair well. Dusty blue with white is a classic color combo, and I love the contrasting textures. I wanted to showcase this variation on a traditional maxi dress because the “two-piece dress” is very in right now.  It’s a great option for a vacation getaway, or in my case, something as simple as brunch with friends.  I love that dressing up is part of my job – and there’s nothing wrong with dressing up for everyday events no matter who you are and what you do!

Foolproof Outfit Combo: Simple Tee + Maxi Skirt

One of my favorite ways to wear a maxi skirt is with a simple tee shirt. I prefer a shirt that’s fairly fitted so I can tuck it in if desired. This particular maxi is meant to sit high on the waist and looks best with a crop top or “tucked in” polished vibe. The simple tee makes for a clean silhouette and allows the skirt to really shine.  The tee itself is easy to dress up with a sparkling statement necklace.  I opted for complementary accessories for an overall tonal effect.  This is an easy chic daytime look, that you can also carry into the night depending on the venue.

Winter To Spring Transitional Style

DSC01855

The weather in So Cal has been kind of crazy lately.  Just two weeks ago it was cold and rainy and even snowing in some parts.  Now our high is peaking close to 90!!  Overall though, spring is easily So Cal’s most beautiful season.  Once the weather levels off, temperatures tend towards ideal (70-ish) with a warm spring breeze, and of course flowers are blooming everywhere.  The foliage here is not to be beat…even the weeds are pretty, lol.  During this season it’s not quite warm enough for summer clothes, but a lightweight knit would do perfectly.  I spotted this slightly cropped, oversized sweater at H&M a few weeks ago and knew I had to have it…I love the silhouette and the embellished neckline! Here I paired it with a (super old) printed maxi and some wedge gladiator sandals that I’ve had for years and absolutely love.  The jewelry is by JewelMint (i.e. cute and affordable).  This look was shot strolling around my local neighborhood at the foothills of the San Gabriel mountains…
