Here’s to the weekend, bringing us one step closer to that wonderful thing called a three-day weekend, aka Memorial Day and thus the beginning of summer. While it’s not a three day weekend just yet, I say to hell with the laundry list of errands to run and simply enjoy every minute of it. I’ll be heading to Los Angeles for the weekend and can’t wait to try out a few spots that have either recently been added or have been on my list including Egg Slut, Firefly, Sidecar Doughnuts and of course a few pit stops at my faves including breakfast at Joan’s on Third and dinner at The Little Door. Not to mention this Eater post with my name written all over it … the 13 best avocado toasts in LA, sign me up. Aside from chowing down like bikini season isn’t right around the corner, I’ll be hiking in Runyon Canyon, hitting up a few flea markets, swinging by the Lolli swimwear sample sale and enjoying a little west coast living on the beach too. I guess there are worse ways to spend a weekend! Hope your weekend is wonderful!
One of the biggest trends this season is anything denim, literally anything denim, from a dress to culottes to jumpsuits to the reprise of the denim skirt. Don’t get me wrong, I’m backing this 100% from the flares and jumpsuits to the dresses but most importantly THIS denim skirt that is everything. Talk about a 70s throwback in style … the front-button, a-line, slightly flared mini is what life is all about and what everyone should have in their closet this season. Bravo Alexa Chung and AG for putting this skirt on the radar of every stylish gal in the world. Quite possibly one of the most versatile “trend” pieces we’ve seen in recent seasons this little beaut can be paired with just about anything.
Thanks to my Texas roots Cinco de Mayo has always been a bit of a “holiday” in my books. May 5th isn’t just a day that the Met Ball occasionally falls on but a reason to get together with friends, drink a delicious salted rimmed rita, take down as much Tex-Mex as possible and wear vibrantly colored ensembles. So while I wasn’t in Texas this year to enjoy the festivities I was able to have quite the time with my fellow NYC blogging gals Alyssa from A-Listed , Lauren from PR Blonde and Stef from Style Safari for an afternoon of shenanigans on the LES that wouldn’t be complete without a stop by Tacombi’s Fonda Nolita. Check out A-Listed, PR Blonde and Style Safari for more pics of our adventures with Carlos around town and of course deets on their outfits!
I have been a fan of Self Portrait since the brand came rolling onto the scene a few years ago. I mean … structured, ladylike silhouettes with a modern edge and finished off with gorgeous details? Sold. Sign me up. So it should come as no surprise that I stalked, literally stalked, Net-A-Porter until the Liliana dress became available and snatched it as quickly as I could. The epitome of classy with a bit of sass. That should be a new dress code for events. Since this is such a solid, standalone number I kept accessories to a minimal amount to keep the focus on the dress.
Tell me have you found your perfect spring dress yet?
Note: This dress sold out quickly but shop some of my other favorite pieces below!
