Hi lovely readers! Wedding season is well underway, and while it may have some of you shook with excitement as shown below, like me:

It may have some of you wanting to crawl into the nearest hole and die due to not having an outfit, being a bridesmaid, not having a date, not being in a relationship, being in close proximity to a bff turned a bridezilla…etc. As someone who has been in four quinceaneras and one wedding (not that many of my friends are married, but if anyone needs a bridesmaid hmu) I am here to make wedding season a little easier! The key? Looking hot without upstaging the bride on her day. 

Think elegant and sexy; no bodycons or crop tops, unless they’re paired with culottes. See below.

Truth be told, I am a sucker for weddings and a mild wedding crasher. I will cry at them all and will jump at the chance to attend them, whether my friendship with the bride and groom (or groom & groom, bride & bride) is questionable or not. I just love being around love. 💕

Here are my 5 outfit ideas:

1. Midi dresss with tasteful slits

From Tobi.com

This gorgeous one is from the brand Tobi. You will look hot without trying too hard. This cut is is ideal because it exposes just the right amount of skin.

A choker, block heels, a clutch, and a kimono for when night falls are the perfect accessories.

From Target.

From Asos.com.

From Nasty Gal

By the way, right now everything is 50% off Nasty Gal’s website with code Get50. 😩

2.Drop Waist Dress with Pop of Color

By Tommy Hilfiger. On Macys.com

The same hemline makes it possible to show some leg in an appropriate way. This color is so summery and gorgeous too.

Pair the dress a clear, nude, gold, or floral encrusted clutch, strappy heels to elongate your legs and a coral lip for an additional complementary pop of color

3. Off the Shoulder or One Shoulder Jumpsuit 

From Forever 21.

A lot of people forget shoulder cleavage can be sexy. It’s not all about legs or actual cleavage.

From H&M

Lace up sandals or mules are a perfect shoe choice.

From DSW.

By Jeffrey Campbell. Sold at Urban Outfitters.

4. High Waisted Culottes & Crop Top

Found on Pinterest.com.

Crop tops can be classy when paired with culottes and dressy accessories. I think this is my favorite outfit out of this list. 💕

These pairs are good culotte options:

5. Tuxedo Dress

From Tobi.com

Though this dress is certainly sexy, the long sleeves and tuxedo vibe make it dressy enough for a wedding. Gold accessories and a gold clutch would match the luxe vibe.

From Nordstrom.

From weddinghigh.com

Those are my suggestions & what I’d wear to summer weddings if I had been invited to to any. (Hint) Get married people! I need to wear these outfits!

If you are a bridesmaid and do not like your dress my suggestion is to customize your accessories to match your personality as much as possible so you’ll at least feel somewhat comfortable with the outfit. If you don’t have a date, wear a cute outfit & find one at the wedding!

Love you all!

Pajama // Lingerie Inspired Style

One of my favorite trends this season and honestly of all runway trends is pajama & lingerie inspired style. 

I’m definitely pining for a set like the one I drew above.

Is the Pajama Wrap Jumpsuit by Asos above not the cutest thing ever? 😩
We’ve seen this trend crop up before. Last spring it was a hit and this year more racier styles are taking over the trend. As noted by Vogue Italia, 

“Bra, briefs, garter belts and (lots of) body suits. Style is in the details…”

We’ve definitely seen the bralette and bodysuit trend for a while. 90s grunge style was embedded with racy punky babydoll dresses a la Courtney Love. 

I love the juxtaposition of a strong boot with a soft feminine lacy dress.

Super cute way to wear a bralette found on stylegee.com

The modern take on lingerie inspired dressing is fashion-forward as well. Apparently, the trend will continue to appear and give its fans something sexy to slip into fall/winter 2017. Vogue Italia also writes, 

The hues for winter 2017 lingerie include timeless black but also lots of burgundy (replacing classic red for Christmas) and pink-nude, more understated but still flirty.”

This outfit is life. 💟👐

Personally, I’m in love, and I can’t wait to wear this trend all summer. 💞

Fierce street style.

What do you think about it?

Love,

Fashion Illustration Inspired by Wedding Season

So all of the pretty pictures on Pinterest (yes I have a wedding board) and Instagram got me inspired to do a wedding season themed fashion illustration. I may do more because there are just so many places you can go with this theme (glam bride, romantic bride classic bride, etc.). Here I did a natural bride. Pretty, happy and herself.

I love drawing and painting with paper and real art tools but its so hard to get a good picture of the illustrations with my phone camera. Instagram has great tools that help bring photos closer to what my ilustrations actually look like. I used th above. The downside is Instagram cuts off pieces of photos. Still, my love affair with Instagram is far from over! Here’s the whole drawing with no white balance adjustment:

Dress found at Sidecca in Burbank

I’m still not done with my quest for summer dresses. This time I was inspired by my love for whimisical things and by wedding season.

I think this look would be perfect for a casual outdoor summer wedding or for date night. By the way, wouldn’t a wedding in a hot air balloon be fun?

I’m so in love with these shoes. 😍

I think hot air balloons and strawberries are what summer dreams are made of. 😉☁🍉👠✈😍
