Don't forget that saying. I truly believe everything comes full circle. THAT APPLIES TO FASHION. Word to my plus size sistahs: Vintage shop- lots of gems to be found... ELASTIC WASTES were very common way back when.. and stretchy wins when it comes to biggger sizes!! I found a new Vintage store I was hot for, they had lots of Chanel on consignment, which always tickles my fancy!
'Pretty Woman' anyone?
dress: Target (current)
purse: Kate Spade
I was sure giving a lot of face in these pictures. Embarrassing.
I keep escaping to the desert for the weekend. When in the desert, I dress in theme. Either resort wear, or hippie dippy, bohemian, type outfits. Think coachella festival wear, or old lady in retirement on a cruise ship gear. Those are my two desert styles. Go with it.
Except, it's still March. AND, the flowers are in full bloom, and it's currently raining. Oh, weather.
I love this dress, I love all long dresses. Some people think too much fabric just isn't flattering, and it may not be, but I still rock them. This one is current from Old Navy, looks expensive and so comfortable. RUN. and. GET. IT. Also comes in a blue hue for those of you non pinkies.
Let's get this out in the open, I love whales. YA, YA.. I am one, but really... I freak for them. I could whale watch for hours and hours and be that girl who is SO excited when they spot a spout and a tail. They are all encompassing to me. POWERFUL CREATURES. NOW, years ago my Mommy took us on a backstage tour at SeaWorld, and I had been traumatized ever since. I strongly disliked seeing the animals in their little tanks "back stage". So, as a big ol' 26 year old I ventured back... and I was pleasantly surprised with what I found! I recommend a visit to y'all. Keep an open mind!

I love an amusement!!!
Sea World has not acquired an animal from the wild since 1983.
Sea World just rehabilitated it's 1 millionth animal!
As I begin to get back into the workout routine, and making an absolute point of hittin' the gym or being active daily, I realize, I need a full blown second wardrobe for this. I have a lot of workout gear, but these days, you need "outfits". I am ready to invest.
There is a pot of gold! One of my best friends Alayna was in San Diego visiting from Dallas, so my husband and I went down there for the weekend. AND, it was Alayna's birthday, which she shares with the luck of the Irish! It was raining cats and dogs.. I was hoping for a rainbow, would be so cliche', in the best way possible of course!

After studying these pictures I learned a couple of things
1: I am not qualified to do a "how to look chic in the rain guide".
2: Southern California people do not function in adverse weather conditions
I have never seen the show 'basketball wives' but I have been to enough games that I can only imagine. Anyways, it is always hard for me to rally after work and the gym.. but last night I was actually glad to have gone. I threw on comfy clothes and ran out the door. I had missed spending time on weeknights with friends, thanks for joining us Morgan and Joel! ADVENTURES!

Anyone ever noticed that Blake Griffin is like a less hot version of Kris Humphries?
On the contrary I have been feeling amazing.. I have some color from my weekend in the desert, I have been going to the gym EVERY DAY, I have been focusing on ME. However, the blog and my relationships might be paying the toll... but I strongly believe, you have to be the best you, and put your best foot forward to everyone and everything in your life.. I will be there soon! In the meantime, here are some pictures from the tennis tournament the other night, the 5th largest tourney in the world. How delicious are the shoes I am wearing.... thank you ASOS.. makes me wanna ALOHAAAAAA..
jeans: Old Navy
shoes: ASOS (current and cheap!)
Mahalo to all of you for having patience with me!
I will start asking co-workers and whomever crosses my path to take some shots so that I can update more! I feel like Andy Murray in his match we watched... always trying to catch up..
I need to remind myself to push through. Rewards await. This past weekend I had the nicest Sunday. It was literally 80+ outside, in early March!!! AMAZING!!! These pictures were taken on a phone however, they should be shared for multiple reasons- #1. I was dressed in theme to eat brunch at the Yacht Club. #2. It is always good to remind yourself of things/moments that make you happy. #3. I am too lazy to take pictures today of my outfit. It's a good one too. Oh well.
Bring on the sunshine, the blonde, and the tan. Start wearing florals, putting away knee-high boots, bringing out sandals and ankle boots. This girl.. is one happy camper! I love a change in season, of course living in Southern California they are mild shifts, which is even better for the wardrobe.. functionality!!

boots: TJ MAXX
jewels: Max&Chloe, flea market, Nordstroms, Turkey, etc.
I always play with my "style". Change my lipstick, change my vibe, but I always remain within my comfort zone, because nothing can be worse than not feeling confident in what you are rockin'!
This was one of those LA days, when I say to myself "I LOVE LA!"
