Peach, coral, and that whole color family is pulling on my heartstrings right now. Also, so is Adobe Illustrator. I just wish it wouldn’t crash as much as it does.
What’s your favorite color right now? 🎨
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
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.By the way, right now everything is 50% off Nasty Gal’s website with code Get50. 😩
2.Drop Waist Dress with Pop of Color
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
A lot of people forget shoulder cleavage can be sexy. It’s not all about legs or actual cleavage.
Lace up sandals or mules are a perfect shoe choice.
4. High Waisted Culottes & Crop Top
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
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.
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!
I’m wishing you all & myself a week full of new beginnings and wonderful things this spring. I feel like I need a fresh start. This app I’m trying out, Paint Joy is actually pretty fun and easy to work with. ( This is not a sponsored post!) I just like it. I’ve tried a lot of similar apps, believe me, but I won’t quit until I find the ideal one for drawing on the go. I’m in love with that idea. I’m also in love with wispy feminine dresses right now. What are you loving at the moment?

Even though the world as we know it has been turned a little on its side as we go forward into a new year and a controversial (to say the least) presidency, I’m trying to remain grateful and feel the love that remains. Today I felt loved after receiving so many birthday wishes. I truly appreciate each one and think it’s time to plant some seeds of hope.
I’ve been feeling a bit disenchanted the past few days. (Lack of sleep didn’t help). I started thinking of all the things I love today, including this blog, and my readers, and realized, when some things suck, you can always turn a new page. You can choose to look at things differently. That’s what I’m doing today, on my birthday.
I made this illustration to illustrate a dress a feminine, slightly kitschy retro dress I envisioned for Valentine’s Day.
Have a lovely day! 💕
I can’t walk in a winter wonderland, ao I drew one. Visiting Switzerland, and seeing snow period are definitely on my bucket list. I’m pretty sure my weak Californian bones will be shivering in my boots, but that’s okay. I think sledding and cute log cabins will be worth it. It’s only raining and 52° here in Burbank, and I need 5 layers. 😊
There’s something special about curling up near the fireplace with a blanket, a book, and a cup of cocoa.
Right now I’m inspired by corduroy dresses, layers, turtlenecks under dresses, and Christmas Eve Eve. 🍬👢☕🎄
It’s nice sometimes to sit down with a cup of coffee or holiday tea (I’m loving Trader Joe’s Wintry Blend coffee) and remember Christmases past, and furthermore, why we celebarate Christmas. I don’t know if you even celebrate Christmas, but even if you don’t, I think cheer and good will is something we could all use a little more of. I made this illustration with these thoughts in mind.
Personally, I do believe in God and I think life is too much of a miracle to deny that God exists. I’m not here to preach though, and this blog is about fashion. However, I think its it’s important to keep the big picture in mind.
I’ve been loving peter pan collared dresses for a while and I’m fawning over rich jewel tones like ruby for Christmas, especially paired with neutrals. There’s no color like red for filling the soul with vibrancy and warmth. I’ve been wearing it on repeat this holiday season. What’s your favorite color right now?
I’m feeling 50s silhouttes of late, since they’re flattering no matter what. Whether you feel bloated or fabulous, this shape always makes you feel instantly cuter. I also love halloween, and all the happy memories that go along with it, and started brainstorming what to wear to upcoming festivities!
I’m a huge fan of vintage costumes, vintage halloween cards, vintage beauty, etc. I love the old aesthetic that women could be subtle and have curves and be attractive. These pin ups are just too adorable.
This dress is kitschy in a cute way. Perfect for halloween at Disneyland or Tim Burton’s Nightmare Before Christmas Live to Film at the Hollywood Bowl. I want to do both if my bank account can swing it.
