Currently Craving: NEURTALS


:LEFT TO RIGHT:  Stella McCartney bag. J.Crew flats {similar here.} Janessa Leone hat. J.Crew top. Eddie Borgo chokerMichael Michael Kors boots. J.Crew earrings. Deborah Lippmann polish. Karen Walker sunnies. 

We're halfway through the spring and I've been craving neutral tones more then ever as of late. As my style continues to mature, I find myself investing more time researching trends I hope to incorporate into my wardrobe that are not only great for now, but will also be great years to come. Khakis, pops of camel, pastel pinks, and {brown-girl friendly} flesh-tones are hot on my summer 'IT' list including the pieces from today's post.

Coachella came and went this past weekend and though I'm not much of a "boho" kinda girl, there was something -i.e. the new hair-do- the  that inspired me to step out of my usual style and tap into my inner Berkeley self. -While keeping it slightly edgy and fashion-forward of course!-

Nonetheless I'm back to rocking my trusty Celine 'Trio' and thought I'd share a few similar styles that you all would love but without the crazy price tag! Scroll through and check out my picks above!

How to be a Girl Boss PT 2. w/ Carrie Lisa of Painted Bagels


Photos by JS Photography

If you recall back in January I did a Girl Boss feature where I chatted with Jayla Koriyan, the YouTube beauty guru, sensation, and vlogger behind The Glamaholic!  Looking back on how much positive feedback I received, I thought I'd share yet another amazing Girl Boss in the making featuring Carrie Lisa of Painted Bagels!

Carrie Lisa, an Oakland, Ca native, graduate from Savannah College of Art & Design in Atlanta, GA, and most importantly, my friend of 11+ years, is the creator and face behind Painted Bagels, a graphic design boutique launched 2012 specializing in brand marketing, custom invites, business cards, and logo designs! -Hence the creator behind MY new logo!- Not only does Carrie specialize in all of the above, but this season she'll also be introducing seasonal greeting cards featuring her new Mother's Day Collection {as seen above}! 

If you're in the market for some new brand marketing that needs a quirky and creative touch, I highly suggest you run over and check out Painted Bagels.com and while you're there be sure to let her know I sent you!

80 & Sunny in English Factory


Dress: English Factory {sold out but loving this + this one for spring.} Shoes: Aldo {old but loving this espadrille pair & they're only $28!} Sunnies: Karen Walker {similar pair for under $60!} Necklace + Bracelet: Zara. Lippie: MAC x Giambattista Valli 'Tats'. 

I mentioned a few posts back {as well as in a weekly email if you're a subscriber, *hint hint*} that I'm ALL about easy, throw-on-and-go dresses this spring. Dresses have truly become a one-stop-shop for me and my latest piece is no exception. I love the double-layered look, i.e. wearing a shirt under a strapless dress, but who really has time for all that when it's 80 degrees out?! I know I don't. 

Be sure to stay tuned to the blog as I'm dress shopping like never before hoping to curate a small collection -over time that is- of amazing designers, styles, and trends that'll surely last me a few seasons to come!

 Happy Wednesday!
