What I Wore | Birthday Brunch

April 28, 2017

It's not my birthday weekend 'til the birthday brunch!

If you've been following my blog for a while (or you're an irl friend; hi, friend!) you know that a big brunch party is a Fashion Barbie birthday tradition. Every year my friends and I throw on our sundresses, ready our glasses for some bottomless mimosas, and travel to a trendy LA brunch spot.

What will 23 bring?

Happy birthday to meeeeee!! Guys, I'm 23 now. How insane is that!? I cannot believe that a whole year has gone by since my 22nd birthday (of course, that is how that whole birthday thing goes; it's kind of a yearly thing) and it feels like so much has changed in the past year.

Selena Gomez Makes The Case For Matching

The preppy way to do festival style

Hey guys! I'm so sorry that posting has been a bit inconsistent lately. I try to post something every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, but I've been quite busy with the new job and lots of other things going on, so my blog may be a bit weird in terms of schedule for the next few weeks. I promise I'll try to get back to my normal posting schedule soon, though!

Anyways, as I'm sure you know, Coachella Weekend One was this past weekend and the festival fashion was phenomenal! From the many Revolve parties to some seriously chic style on the festival grounds, there were too many good looks to choose from. I don't have time to do a full Coachella style recap, but I did want to share one of my favorite outfits from the weekend.

Selena Gomez has transformed into quite the style queen, and I adored her cheery flower print HVN dress with matching kerchief that she wore in Indio this past weekend. Paired with easygoing sneakers, this look is a fashionable take on festival style that is cute, practical, but not bordering on swimsuit territory, which is the direction many celebrities leaned towards for the music festival. 

If you're looking for a more sophisticated alternative to cut-off shorts and crop tops, take Selena's sartorial cue and opt for a bright floral dress, and coordinate pieces too! It makes anyone look instantly put-together.

Or, how to dress like a festival girl

Over the past year or so, I've developed quite the obsession with e-commerce site Revolve. Not only am I in love with the California-cool vibes of the clothes they sell, but I adore the aesthetic they promote on social media and the world they create that revolves (I know, I know) around their brand. Revolve has become the model of successful social media marketing, from their merry band of gorgeous influencers to their FOMO-inducing getaways in exciting locales like the Hamptons and Anguilla. 

Shopping List | Basket Bag

Zara Pom Pom basket

And no, I'm not talking a basket for Easter eggs!

Happy Friday, friends! What are your weekend plans? Right now mine involve getting some spring shopping done at the Revolve Social Club open house and the new & Other Stories at the Americana! You?

And of course, one thing I've been lusting after is a perfect summer basket bag. I've been seeing them all week, toted around by bloggers like Adenorah and Emma Hill, and boy, do I want one for myself! If there's anything that will get you into the summer mood no matter where you are or what you're doing, it's a basket bag. They make any occasion feel like a summery picnic, and they are oh so chic.

I'm particularly obsessed with this Zara one, as well as this one from Doen, but alas, these brands are too cool for ShopStyle, so I'll round up some other trendy basket bags I also think you'll enjoy! Check it out:

April Wish List

April 3, 2017

A pink-filled wish list for my birthday month!

April is one of my favorite months, and it's not just because it happens to be my birthday month! It's officially spring, the sun is shining, and it's a busy month full of festivities. If you're a festival girl, Coachella is just around the corner (I'll be sharing my Coachella outfit picks later this week!) and Easter is another excuse to buy a cute floral dress and eat an elaborate brunch. And yes, I happen to turn 23 this month, which is quite exciting! So here's what I'm wishing for during my birthday month:
