FLUTTERED FLORES

IRO Ashville leather jacket in coral pink, Coral leather jacket

I've been a busy little bee these past few weeks working on expanding my collection of old and new favorites and this outfit is basically an accumulation of my efforts. I don't think I need to tell you how I feel about leather jackets. Studded, perforated, printed and brightly colored, I want them all! And this coral perfection from IRO is my newest and brightest favorite:) The color alone would have been enough to make me want to add it to my collection, but the fact that I am particularly partial to moto leather jackets, made it that much more irresistible!


ELIZABETH ARDEN PREVAGE SWEEPSTAKES

If you read my blog on regular basis, you know skincare is a bit of an obsession for me. Normally, I am very good about taking care of my skin. I eat well, I exercise, I try to get plenty of sleep and use good skincare products. Yet, no matter how diligent I am about taking care of my skin,  the damaging effects of certain environmental assaults such as sun exposure, pollution and stress are simply beyond my control.

SUNSHINE, SURFING & SKINCARE

April 20, 2015

Surfing in Malibu, Girl, Surfboard, Wetsuit

I can't count how many times I promised myself this was going to be the summer when I finally take surfing lessons... I even went as far as purchasing a wet suit, yet somehow summers went by and I never made good on my promise. Well, last week it all changed! Last week I decided it was going to be now or never! And... I finally did it! 

Though I imagined many times what surfing would be like, I don't think I ever realized just how challenging it really is! Yes, call me naive but I thought that years of swimming and yoga should at least give me some edge! Well, let me tell you, I was wrong! Very, very wrong! Forget riding the wave, or even just standing up on the board, after my 3rd lesson, I more or less mastered paddling out, but that was pretty much my only achievement:) Well, that and really sore arms! Can we count that as an achievement? 

But I am not giving up! My fourth lesson is scheduled for next week and I am adamant about at least standing up on the board by the end of it! Overreaching? Perhaps, but I am an eternal optimist at heart!


COLD SHOULDER IN PALM SPRINGS

April 19, 2015


I think I've developed a new obsession... obsession with off-the-shoulder dresses that is. My preoccupation with dresses in general is nothing new, you know me, I love a good flirty frock but thanks to this season's emphasis on exposed shoulder, this preoccupation reached a whole new level. Seriously, the way I feel now, I could easily wear off-the-shoulder dresses everyday for the rest of the summer and be quite happy about that. Of course based on the number of of-the-shoulder dresses which are now part of my closet, the possibility of this actually happening is very, very real :)


COACHELLA 2015 :: LOOK ONE

Coachella 2015 style, Coachella outfit, Coachella overalls, black and white Coachella outfit

To be in Palm Springs any day of the year, for any purpose whatsoever is great but to be in Palm Springs for Festival Season, well...  now that's even better! Every year I wait for Festival Season like a kid waiting for Christmas and once it arrives, it never disappoints! It's always wonderful! Absolutely all of it! The music, the parties, the weather and of course my personal favorite, the fashion! For me, dressing up for the Festival is at least 50 percent of the fun! Ok, probably more like 60, if I was being completely honest, but I pretty sure you already knew that if you follow my blog on regular basis:) And if you didn't, see evidence here.

A SUMMER SUIT

April 15, 2015


Have you ever had a feeling like something was meant just for you? Well, that's exactly how I felt when this suit from Via Delle Perle came into my life. I mean, come on! It's cobalt, it's a suit and it's a suit with shorts. So far, three out of three! But it doesn't stop there! You see, lately I've developed a soft spot for something I like to call midi shorts. Midi shorts are definitely longer than Coachella-style barely there mini shorts but not quite as long as Culottes. Basically a happy medium and a perfect option for pretty much any occasion! Having realized the full potential of midi shorts, I suddenly felt a void since none yet found their way into my closet! To fill the void, the scoured the web in hopes of finding a perfect pair, but instead found a perfect suit! Honestly, I wish all of my searches were this fruitful!
