Wonderful Wednesday: GUESS & Guest

The week is halfway over (YAY!) and I just wanted to share a few of my Wednesday happenings:

Check out my  Guest Post on Bedazzles After Dark. It's all about Summer Sandals under $75 - GO!
If you follow me on twitter or instagram then you saw that I shot a video today for GUESS! I am so honored that GUESS asked me to help celebrate their 30 Sexy Years. Look out for a few more GUESS posts in June + my video (eeek!!).  

Here are some shot from today:

 Hope your Wednesday was wonderful!

Summer Swim

With summer just around the corner I've officially started stocking up on fresh new suits. Swimwear is like shoes, you can never have enough! Especially because I love to mix and match my bikini tops and bottoms.

I recently picked out this great peacock colored bikini and took it for a spin in Vegas:

 This swim season it's not only about color but details. The macrame detail on this gives it a unique feel that's a little more luxe than your basic tie-side bikini. I don't know about you but for me lining is KEY on a swimsuit. This baby had me feeling very comfortable and confident! Love that it comes in multiple colors too; I may get the yellow one to mix & match!

Weekend Pics: VEGAS

3 nights of Vegas on a holiday weekend... I'm pretty sure that sums it up! We had a blast and now we have blisters to show for it {TMI, I know}. Headed to NY tomorrow for a fun video shoot so I'm spending today unpacking & repacking!

Here are a few snaps from Vegas:

Saturday Night- my dress has a polka dot mesh insert on the left side that I just love. My earrings are Vivid Vanities, aren't they fun?

Saturday evening night cap at Lily in the Bellagio

Had to stop at PBR Rock Bar for their dorito mac & cheese. It's a MUST every time we go to Vegas!


The aftermath of Sunday at the pool

 Sunday night's shoes: wearing pink Topshop heels & Chanelle is wearing Sole Society

 Hope you are enjoying your long weekend! Lots of exciting things coming up that I cannot wait to share.

Friday Eye Candy: Christian Louboutin

It's a 3 day weekend and I'm headed to Vegas. Woo hoo!

Wish I had these in my suitcase:

Christian Louboutin Leopard Print Wedges for $695 @ Saks
I loved the CL wedge style last year and this updated leopard version is no different - classic & perfect.

Hope you enjoy the Holiday weekend!

Look for Less: Jimmy Choo vs. Steve Madden

I was browsing shoes, per the usual, and spotted a great Summer look for less. Steve Madden is known for his knock-offs but this is a pretty basic sandal and the $100 price tag is just right:

Jimmy Choo 'Linda'- $695 & Steve Madden 'Dynemite' - $79

What do you think? The heel and platform on the 'Dynemite' are a bit thicker but it still gives the same summery sandal feel! 

Happy almost Friday!

Playing in the Park

The weather has been amazing in LA, it seems as if summer has arrived! After work yesterday I headed over to the beautiful park around the corner from my apt. to read and wind down from the work day. This is a typical summer work look:
{Banana Republic Tank // J. Crew Denim Leggings // Rebecca Minkoff MAB // LC Lauren Conrad Sandals}

My workplace is super casual (as you can see) however I usually like to wear a pair of heels or silky top to dress things up once in awhile. After college I worked in a super corporate office (slacks, button ups, closed toed heels) and although it was fun dressing like a "grownup" some days, I much prefer a casual work environment. I can tell these LC Lauren Conrad sandals will definitely be a warm weather go-to. The style and the color just work!

Currently Pinning

This is the first time in years that my roomie and I haven't moved. At one point we had 4 apartments in 4 years! Although I'm happy we are in our current place, I'm itching for a change and definitely a closet purge. Lately I've been pinning new home decor inspiration and organizational ideas to help the non-move situation. Plus the usual girly things like shoes and nail polish!

Shop My Look: Summer White Denim

Denim shorts are a Summer staple and I definitely like to keep a white pair in the rotation. Loving this scalloped style that I got on a recent Kohl's trip:

{LC Lauren Conrad shortsLC Lauren Conrad top, LC Lauren Conrad sandals and Apt. 9 clutch}

The lace back detail and peachy color of the top add the perfect girly touches. Cognac accessories are definitely a must-have for Summer too! They just compliment tan skin oh-so well. Visit the Kohl’s Style File to learn more about the hottest trends for Spring and Summer!

{TREND} Gold Ankle Cuffs

Forget about anklets, it’s all about making a statement with ankle cuffs! Whether on the shoe or an added accessory, ankle cuffs are giving ankle straps a run for their money:

 {Images: Pinterest & Dolce Vita Sandals}

There are a handful of ankle cuff options available under $100-

Of course the most expensive pair is the only adjustable version but let's face it, not all ankles are equal and adjustable is probably the way to go!

 Pursuit Tip: pair with simple black pumps for a clean and classic look or go bold with colorful heels

Jimmy Choo Beverly Hills 24:7 Party

Last night Eddie and I went to Jimmy Choo's 24:7 Pre-Fall Launch Party. In true Jimmy Choo fashion, it was a lovely event with champagne & hors d'oeuvres. And of course, the eye candy was out of control:

'Gladys' in leopard - Eddie thought this was THE shoe for me
'Letitia' is hot, hot, hot!
 'Private' & 'Cosmic' anchoring CHOO 24:7
 Stunning cut-out details on 'Imogen'
 Couldn't resist snapping a picture of a party-goer's t-strap bow sandals!

Who doesn't love lusting over walls of shoes while sipping champagne? Thanks Jimmy Choo for inviting us!
