Wedding Guest

wedding guest, pink dress,
What I Am Wearing:
Dress (here/here) // Shoes (old, try this here, more pink shoes here, here, & here)

It is wedding season once again! I often receive questions with regards to outfits to wear to weddings and I am hoping this post can inspire you. Generally, wedding guests’ attires will vary based on the wedding theme and location. For black tie, formal or garden events, this bow dress or a previous look here will be great. For garden weddings, it is best to go for something light,with soft colors tones, floral and fun prints...similar to the floral dresses I wore here and here

I have rounded up some of my favorite wedding guests’ looks suitable for different themes and locations.

White Wrap Dress

What I Am Wearing:
Me: White dress (here/here, more white dresses here) // Cult gaia bag (here, /more colors hereblack version here) // Lemon print scarf (here) // Aquazzura shoes (old, similar here/here, love this here) // Earrings (here/here)
Mother's outfit: Dress (here) // Cardigan (here) // Shoes (old, Old navy)
Nolan's outfit: Zara pants & shirt (similar pants (here) // Nolan's shoes (here)

I enjoy wearing white dresses in the spring and summer and I came across this white wrap dress by an Australian label while searching for a fun and easy eyelet dress. It is a great piece and can easily be mistaken for a two-piece skirt and top combo.

The wrap skirt ties at the waist with an exposed back zip. The dress is partially lined and I love the elbow length sleeves and the scalloped edges. You can pair with heels or flats and I plan on styling it with converse for a day out. I posted a glimpse of this look on my Instagram on Sunday for Mother's Day.

Happy Monday! Hope you all had a wonderful Mother's Day weekend! My weekend was awesome and filled with love and laughter (as seen on my Instagram story). In addition to the Mother's Day, it was also my birthday weekend. Today is my birthday; so the celebration continues. ;) I thank God for another year and most importantly, for life. Today, I am dressed in one of my favorite Zimmermann dresses for my birthday. The spaghetti strap crossing on the back caught my attention and I love this dress. It is a fun dress and perfect for my celebration. I completed the look with green drop earrings to complement the floral print.

Have a great weekend!

Last Minute Mother's Day Gift Ideas

Mothers Day gift ideas,
 One / two / three / four / five / six / seven / eight / nine / ten / eleven / twelve / thirteen / fourteen 

Mother's Day is on Sunday and I have compiled some of my favorite items that will make great Mother’s Day gifts. There are so many gift ideas for moms, new moms and expecting moms and don’t forget that most ladies will love to receive flowers in addition to gifts. Talking about gifts, Nordstrom has great mother's day gift selections in varying price ranges. Perfumes are always lovely and I am a big fan of Narciso RodriguezJo Malone, and Chloe perfumes. Watches also make great gifts and I am currently eyeing this Michele watch -- a splurge, but it is timeless! Alex and Ani has lots of amazing sentimental jewelries from bangles to necklace charms for all mothers.


Gift for expecting and new mom
This is a great time to indulge her with that diaper bag or chic stroller that she has been eyeing or pinning on Pinterest. In case you are not sure what exactly to get, the Orbitz stroller, BugabooStokke Xplory or Mima Xari stroller will be a great splurge.

How To Wear Gingham

how to wear gingham maxi dress,
What I Am Wearing:
Dress (here, also eying this here) // Bag (here/here, more here) // Flats (here, here or here) // Hat (here) // Earrings (here, more  here/here) // Denim jacket (here)

This week appears to be all about maxi dresses for me. Yesterday’s post was about this pleated maxi dress (here) and today’s post is about a gingham print. Gingham is a classic print making a renewed presence on 2017’s trendiest lists and I have always been a big fan of prints especially those with dark hues. For today's post, I went with a maxi length style. Besides the print, the fit and length  of this gingham strap dress is amazing. To avoid being plain, I accessorized with fun pieces and colors. The blue earrings complement the blue print and the lace-up flats add a pop of color to the outfit.

Spring Must-Have Dress: Abstraction Maxi

Pleated abstraction maxi dress,
What I Am Wearing:
Dress (In Size XS here, got this here/here, love this here/here, more here) // Bag (here, /more colors here) // Hat (here) // Shoes (here, love this here) // Earrings (here, more  here/here)

This dress personifies elegance and grace and the abstract pleated colors showcase “must have” colors on spring dresses. From the cross-strap detail to the pleated silhouette, the dress is a show stopper which is probably why I couldn't take my eyes of it when I saw it online...definitely a must-have! 

I was lucky to get it when it went up on sale weeks ago and I wore it during Easter as shown on my Instagram. This dress will be great for spring graduations or wedding events and you can dress up in heels or casually in flats. I will be packing this dress for my next vacation with some amazing flats. I completed the look with the "It bag", yellow earrings to complement the dress and straw hat for fun.

Lost Lover Romper

Keepsake lost lover romper,
What I Am Wearing:
Keepsake romper (On sale here, more options here/here) // Shoes (here/here, budget friendly here) // Bag (here) // Earrings (here) // Ring (here)

Not only is the tiered flounced ruffle detail on this "Lost lover romper" amazing, the fit is unbelievable. It is one of those rompers that you can dress up in heels for a date/outing or in flats for a brunch with friends. For today’s post, I planned on wearing beige pumps but decided to pair the outfit with leopardpumps for a fun and unique spin to the look in addition to the vibrant blue drop earrings . For a different appeal, I wore a fuchsia pink lipstick.
