Blue Morpho

These beautiful blue butterflies recently migrate from the mall to my closet and they are here to stay... I can't get enough of it, I've been wearing it non stop. It's light, it's practical, it's pretty and it's blue... what not to love about this blue trend?

Feels Like Summer

That's right, the sun is out in Southern California and my spirit is as bright as my scarf! I'm still mixing my prints, sticking with stripes and geometric forms, adding texture and of course having a lot of fun. I'm heading to the beach tomorrow morning with the kids and surely will bring my miss little sunshine hat with me. Enjoy your week!

Lavender For Spring

I'm not a big fan of purple and its shades but I couldn't resist this gingham lavender shirt from J.Crew and this pink bow tie (a find at Loehmann's men's department). I can't get enough of gingham so I put both together with a plain gray dress and immediately felt the spring fever.

How do you wear lavender?

Casual Cold Day

After a few hot days in Southern California a cooler air started to blow making the temperatures to drop a little. I hope this is helping to control the wildfires that so often happens around here.

To combat the cold I pulled some boots and scarf out of my closet and just mix some pattern with lace. The baseball cap helps protect me from the wind (which I hate by the way) and keep my hair in place... hehehe! Be cool and safe Californians!
