#TargetStyle: Prints

There are two things I'm loving this season: skirts & prints. Apparently Target can read minds because this skirt called out my name as I was making a beeline to the cosmetics section. #Storyofmylife

Of course, Pursuing Tarjay's women's dept. ensued!

I legit have separation anxiety from my chambray shirt; it's like a grown-up blankey. Honestly, it's  an LA jacket of sorts (sorry freezing East Coast friends).  Anywho - besides black & white graphic prints, this spring is all about colorful patterns that are inspired from around the world. Think Aztec patterns in hot pink and coral. It's almost as if my shoes were cut out of this skirt, right?! Speaking of shoes, these  Loeffler Randall sandals are my newest purchase and I'm obsessed. If you're interested in pursuing, they are true to size and fit the bill for one of spring's hottest shoe trends: laser cut styles.

East vs. West Style: Lace

Don't fear the slip dress = the subject line of an e-mail I received yesterday that made me a little warm and fuzzy inside. You'll see why below...

The slip dress aka: the "I might be wearing lingerie but am I?" dress. No matter which way you spin it, it's a dress that sure makes for a great Saturday night out look AND Sunday brunch ensemble. Now that's what I call versatile! A few weekends ago I opted for the Sunday brunch look:

It's all about lace this season and lace-trim details are totally my jam! To get a more casual vibe I paired this slip dress with my go-to chambray shirt and basic sandals. Nothing screams 90 degree temps like a barely there dress and minimal footwear. Summer, I'm ready for ya!

Weekend Warrior: Coachella + Community Service

Don't let the title fool you - this post isn't about community service at Coachella (boy, would that be interesting)! I've been known to make the best of my weekends, even cramming in a little too much; it's the weekend warrior in me. This past weekend I spent 36 hours in Indio then booked it back to LA to do some community service. 
Coachella Weekend Indio

What can 36 hours in Coachella-land get you? A lot of floral romper and crop top sightings, an insanely gorgeous sunset, a night with FORWARD by Elyse Walker at the Merv Griffin Estate (ridic!), some playtime with TZR and #babeswhobrunch and, of course, a road trip detour to In-N-Out. Throw in 4+ Starbucks stops and you have a pretty successful trip!

Back in LA the boy and I hopped on the Do Good Bus to help pick 20,000 lbs. of oranges for those in need. We've both been talking about "giving back" for along time and finally decided to do it! Harvesting oranges is not as easy as it looks especially for short kids like me. Let's just say my neck is probably going to feel it maƱana, but it was totally worth it. Hoping to get in a more regular community service routine. Do you have any local or national organizations you support? Would love any suggestions!

#TargetStyle: Pastel Kimono

When Jimmy Choo met Target they got along quite well! It was almost like a match made in high- low heaven.

Love a great high-low combination! This month I'm working with Tarjay to share one of spring's biggest trends: pastels. Yesterday, I didn't follow directions but today I couldn't help but embrace this gorgeous Mossimo kimono. The floral details and pastel hues scream spring, not to mention the on-trend kimono style. Pastels actually compliment us tan kids quite well which is why I opted for a pastel mani, too. Looking back I would've swapped out a crew neck tank for a v-neck to break up the head neck-to-toe white, but you live and you learn. This kimono is definitely coming with me to Coachella this weekend. Are you headed to the desert, too?

East vs. West Style: Pastels

Sometimes I don't follow directions.

Yes, I did pass the first grade and do know what pastel colors look like. If you look closely there is a hint of powder pink in this fantabulous floral skirt. #justsaying

Skirts are having a serious moment in my closet (and on me). With summer on the horizon, I'm all about exposing a little bit of leg; it will be bikini season before we know it and these gams aren't going to tan themselves. What's amazing is how a little bit of color and a splash of print can brighten up any day. Honestly, the combo really does add a bit of pep in my step. Bye bye b&w- okay, not really - but let's all try to incorporate more color into our lives!

Laser Cut Styles for Any Budget

The only solution to a serious case of the Mondays? Shopping. Okay, maybe coffee and a chocolate bar will suffice. I digress... the pursuit of fabulous spring styles continues with these laser cut beauties: 

No matter what the price, if you stick with laser cuts in nude or black then they'll look like a million bucks. I'm loving this trend and all the fun designs and details there are to choose from. Zara also has few fabulous pairs!

In case you missed it, a few weeks ago I shared my fave d'orsday styles for any budget! #pursuingshoes

Feeling Nautical

Rain or shine, tonight's the LA #PoshParty and I'm so pumped to meet some of you! If you can't make it then head over to my Poshmark closet to check out the items I just posted. #happyshopping

Now that spring is officially here it's time for sailboat rides and yacht parties. Okay, not really, but we can pretend! Whenever I'm feeling uninspired and can't pull out another black & white combo for the week, I turn to a classic pairing: navy stripes with a pop of red.

Yup, nautical pairings aren't new and that's totally fine with me. It feels oh-so comforting and good for our closets/wallets, right? And once again Zara's won me over with a pair of nude/taupe shoes! #sopredictable
