Off the Shoulder Style

 If you haven’t been living under a rock, then you know that the off the shoulder trend is one of this Spring’s top styles. We saw it peak its head last summer, but it’s making its way to the top pick this spring. We are under their spell, and loving every bit of it. A combination of sweet and sexy that has us craving more…. more… more!

First, we have Jacquelyn wearing this flowy Maison Dress by MLM Label, and this spicy colored number is effortlessly perfect for this spring. Jacquelyn loves this dress cause not only is it timeless and can go from season to season, but it’s also breastfeeding friendly. 

Paired with her favorite spring essentials: Cleobella Mexicana Clutch, suede mules by Matisse, and her trusty Wyeth Eyewear Calyer.

Loving the mini off the shoulder as much as we do? Here are some other numbers we love for this spring.

Next up, I’m wearing this Sheer Bliss Dress by Amuse Society in Black Sands that I bought on Revolve. I love Amuse Society case you find it on Revolve, Amazon, and even at Nordstrom now. The best part is that they are super affordable. Can’t beat that! 

Paired with my Wyeth Eyewear Baxter in Opaque Champagne and Lilac Gladiator Sandals. Yes, I have the same pair in different colors. When you find a sandal at Target that is stylish and affordable, you buy them in all the colors! I also got them when they were having their BOGO sale. 

More flowy floral gems that we have all the heart eyes for!

Now, I really love this little number on Jacquelyn. This embroidered Rebecca Minkoff Celestine top can be worn all thru spring. The eyelet embroidered pattern is also another spring trend, so you are double in style now! To complete the look, pair with some white denim cut-offs, nude sandals, and sunnies. Now you have a spring staple to add to your closet. 

More eyelet off the shoulder tops!

Now, our last look. Let’s just talk briefly about mom jeans. When I was a young little know it all in the 80’s, fluffy bangs and all, I thought mom jeans were worn strictly just to humiliate your child at school pickup. Well, now as a mom I had to give it a try right? It was time to come full circle. Being 5’2 1/2″ (yes! I count that 1/2 inch), there are a lot of styles I just can’t pull off due to the lack of my stems. But, I gave it my all and wore those moms jeans like no one’s business. I have to admit they are comfy. However, the debate is still out on them.

I paired those bad ass jeans with the flouncy Pretty Lady Tee by Free People. A perfect tee to cover that wiggle jiggle arm action I like to hide. I tucked in the shirt for full mom jean effect and paired with my Lilac Gladiators by Mossimo, and Wyeth Eyewear Dilworth sunnies. Easy off the shoulder action attire you can wear everyday around town, or show up to school and embarrass this generation’s know it alls. 

Some other favorite white off the shoulder tees if this one doesn’t tickle your fancy.

Happy Easter Sunday!

Sadly, all the cute Easter bunny ideas are coming to an end today, but that just means its time for Cinco de Mayo inspiration! Yay! It will be here in no time. Yesterday I was on Amazon of all places and found so many fun tees to wear on several days leading up to and on Cinco de Mayo. Today is just round one of all the inspiration we have for this fiesta. Stay tuned! Until then, check out all these cute tees. There are so many fun ones; I kinda want to buy all of them. Eek! 

Mate the Label is one of my favorite lines for cool vintage tees. It is a Los Angeles-based company, and they have a collection of vintage inspired graphics that embody the California-cool lifestyle. Pretty sure between Jacquelyn and I we have all of these. Now that I know they are on Amazon, this might be dangerous for the wallet. 

 MATE THE LABEL WOMEN’S ‘NOT YOUR MAMACITA’ TANK TOP

I just wore this one yesterday! My personal favorite one, it goes with anything. Pair it with some denim and a cool kimono, and you are all set. The color combination of blush, denim blue, and white makes for a perfect spring tank. 

MATE THE LABEL KYLE LONG SLEEVE ADIOS PANTALONES OCHRE

This one is currently in my cart. The simplicity of this cozy long sleeve tee that is made with a super soft fabric is perfect for running around town. Pretty sure you will want to live in this vintage tee. 

MATE THE LABEL WOMEN’S ‘MARGARITAS FOR SEÑORITAS’ NECK T-SHIRT

Calling all margarita lovers! This one is for you ladies! The margarita queen herself, Jacquelyn has this tee, and I’m pretty sure she wears it at least a couple of times a month. When you’re a margarita lover, you gotta let people know what’s up! 

MATE THE LABEL WOMEN’S SPICY TANK

This last one is another one that is in my cart. This vintage muscle tee says it perfectly. Spicy! Add a little spice to your life. 

Did I just make you fall in love with Mate the label? Pretty fun tees, and even better you can buy them through AmazonHave to love Amazon; you seriously can find everything on there, and it will be here in no time. Pat yourself on the back for having your Cinco de Mayo outfit already and Easter isn’t even begun for most of us. Hopefully, my little bunnies sleep in a tad bit longer.

Wishing you and your family a Happy Easter today! Now if you will excuse me, I have some shopping to do while sipping on a mimosa.

Easter Style

Easter is three days away and we’ve gone over everything style wise from eggs to kids and even our tables.  But have you got your own Easter style ready?  Ever since I was young my mom would always have me in a cute new dress on Easter and well, call me old fashioned, but I like to keep traditions alive.  I mean, I’m just doing my part over here.  

There are so many good dresses out there right now!  I think that is one of the reasons I love Spring so much, all of the pretty dresses start to arrive and my heart starts to flutter.  The colors are brighter and fresher and the prints are extra pretty.  That’s what I think of with an Easter outfit – a cute little dress that screams Spring!!  So Abby and I are sharing our picks of dresses for Easter style… Hope it makes your heart skip a beat like it does mine!

First we have Abby wearing this flowy maxi from Free People.  It’s so effortless and easy breezy,  you could continue to wear this through Summer and nobody would want to stop you.  She pairs it with her favorite clutch and sandals, along with a pair of Wyeth lucite sunnies.  And is it just me or is the the perfect dress to eat Easter brunch in??  Room for some stretch right there….

Next up, I’m in this gorgeous slip dress by Spell that I found at Costa Cabana.  I love the blue color and the pretty floral print.  Spell is one of my favorite brands to shop, I always want everything… Still trying to figure out how to do that and not let the husband be the wiser…  

I am pairing this dress (and every dress forever and ever) with these cute new suede mules by Matisse.  They are soooo comfy and I’m pretty sure I’ll be wearing these a lot this Spring.

Clearly we are loving prints this season because Abby found another one that is killer.  This Jen’s Pirate Booty kaftan is so pretty and that lace detail trim just makes it.  I love how she uses our favorite Cleobella Mexicana clutch to accessorize it.  This baby is sheer so it’s pretty sexy, maybe a good date night Easter outfit?!  Is that a thing?  Haha, we can make it one right?  I mean you know how bunnies like to do it…  Sorry, had to…

Speaking of Cleobella I visited their shop in Seal Beach recently and found this cute little number, the Carnival Dress!  I mean, I could have gone crazy in there so I’m lucky I used self control and only left with this one…  Deep breaths…

Embroidery is huge this Spring and I love the detail and colors that this dress has.  I paired it with my Matisse Mules and my Wyeth sunnies.  This dress is so light and easy, I am thinking I could definitely dress it down with flats and a denim jacket too.  But for Easter you gotta go the fancy route!

There’s our Easter style picks, so now you have no excuse but to look your best on Sunday!!  So now go shopping, you’re allowed!

Spring Break Style

Spring Break is happening, it could be this week, next week, or maybe it was last week, but it’s here!  Don’t get me wrong, I love all Of the seasons but the warmer weather is where my heart is.  Spring Break is sort of the beginning of sunnier days, and such a good excuse to go shopping for a wardrobe update.  Time to store those sweaters and bust out the tank tops!!

I shopped at one of my favorite local boutiques, Costa Cabana, to get some inspiration.  Owner and buyer Lauren Flores has such a great eye.  She brings in only the best brands and the store is so well curated.  They have such a good variety of dresses, sunglasses and swimwear.  So bring on the bright colors and everything else involved with Spring Break style.

Since I was little Spring Break and Summer Break always invoke a sense of fun!  That’s what I think of with Spring Break style, just having fun with it!  Playing with color, wearing things that are easy breezy!  That’s one of the reasons I love these Beach Riot overalls.  They truly bring me back to my childhood.  I would wear them over a swimsuit to the beach or with a tank and sneakers to Disneyland!  Another piece I love in this outfit are the Raen Sunnies, the shape and the color are just the best!!

I get so much inspiration from seeing people’s flat lays.  Something about having the outfit all set out for me to see together, I even do that for myself when I’m getting ready for an event.  With the help of the lovely ladies of Costa Cabana I created a little Spring Break essentials flat lay for y’all.  

It’s got everything you need for the sun; a super cute swimsuit, denim cut offs, a tank, a hat, sunnies, sandals and my favorite sea hair spray…

Another Spring Break style essential is a cover up.  You can’t be walking around in your bikini all day long, well unless your Gigi Hadid, then you can do whatever the hell you want.  But seriously, I found the cutest little coverup at Costa Cabana by Amuse Society.  I love the black and white floral print, it’s light weight and covers just enough.  You could totally wear this out as a dress too because it isn’t too sheer…

There you have it!  Now you are all set for Spring Break and all you need is to have some fun!  You can shop all of these looks here:

Our favorite Statement Tops for Spring

Are you like me and seem to ALWAYS buy dresses?!  Whenever I go to find a good top in my closet there are none to be found!  So this year I decided to invest more in tops.  I think the reason I don’t is because they can be somewhat pricey and almost the same as a dress, so I’ll think to myself, why not just buy the dress?  Well silly me, tops can go with so much more!  And statement tops are so fun!!  You can dress them up or down, with shorts, jeans, skirts, you name it.  So this is obviously where I should start putting more of my money!

We found some really great statement tops for Spring we are excited to share with you.  I say “statement” tops because they are each printed and really make a statement with your outfit.  Keep scrolling to shop our looks and to see how we styled them.  I think some of our favorites may be some of yours too!

Look 1

I found this Jen’s Pirate Booty top at one of my favorite boutiques – Prism.  I fell in love with the print and the fit of it but at the time thought it was a little too pricey… But, when I got home I couldn’t stop thinking about it!!  Lucky me, a week or so later they had a flash sale and I just had to snag it up and I’m so glad I did!

 I’ve worn it so many times since and love it.  It’s the perfect statement top to take me into summer!  Here I wore it with my Madewell High Rise Skinnies, Cleobella fringe purse (similar here), Wyeth Sunglasses and Free People Sandals.  But I envision it with some denim shorts or overalls when it gets warmer!

Look 2

Abby is jumping in on the statement top game strong with this top by Boemo.  The colors and print are so pretty for Spring and we love the black lace touch on the shoulders.  This is another great bohemian style top that can be dressed casually with some cute shorts like Abby has on here, or dressed up with a pair of black denim.  Abby’s sandals are so cute and from one of our favorite stores – Target!!  You guys gotta snatch these up fast!

This top just reminds me of warm days and would be so cute to wear all Summer long.  It would be especially cute over a swimsuit on an Island getaway… I mean, just saying but shouldn’t Abby’s hubby take her on a vacay just so she can wear this top?  I think so!

Shop the Look Below!

Look 3

My second top is just too good, seriously goes with EVERYTHING!  This top by Amuse Society could definitely be worn to work with some black pants or a skirt and then obviously more casually with jeans.  A perfect day to night statement top!  

I love the simple but graphic black and white print.  I again paired it with my Madewell High Rise Skinnies – I’ve been wearing the crap out of those lately – a cute hat by Brixton, my favorite Cleobella clutch and my Dolce Vita booties.  

I like this look for the colder Spring days but would definitely lose the hat and boots if it was warmer.  Probably throw on some denim shorts and sandals, or even some sneakers!

We’ve got more fun style posts coming up soon!  Now get out there and try some fun statement tops on!
