Okay, I'll admit... This doesn't really portray my style. I don't really like wearing things super tight. My rule of thumb is if you're going to wear something tight, either do it on the top half or bottom half. Not both! But I was having a nice little date night with Kevin so I decided I would wear something that he would like... And boy was he surprised!

I realize I've been neglecting some of my favorite designers and my love for blogging about them. Obviously fall fashion has been a huge topic online and I feel like I should chime in on my favorite finds.
Dahlia has always had a little piece of my heart. They really embrace my love for feminine details and pretty prints. I've blogged about a Dahlia dress before (seen here) and I'm constantly putting items onto my "wishlist". After all, my birthday is coming up in a few months :). Here are a few of my favorite finds:

I had what I would consider a unique weekend. Kevin was out in Vegas for a bachelor party so I was on my own. It's interesting because when he was working his old job he would be gone all the time, sometimes months at a time. I was just used to doing my own thing and counting the days until he came home. Since he's been home (it's been about a year now) we've pretty much spent every weekend together. But it's healthy to spend time apart, I was in Vegas just last month without him. I was just reminded of what my life used to be like being in a long distance relationship.

It's been much too long since I've featured some Instagram photos. Between work, my family and their medical problems and finding time for outfit posts I've completely run out of time! Luckily I've dedicated time this weekend to play catch up so check it out :)

I got this gorgeous dress last year for Christmas. Every year I make a Modcloth wish list for my boyfriend to shop from. And of course, every year he gets me goodies from my list. Bless his generous heart, he always makes me feel special during the holidays/my birthday. I love him :)

Living in Los Angeles definitely has its perks. I feel so very lucky to live in a beautiful and safe town filled with some of the best restaurants and shopping in the world. While my surroundings are amazing, rent in this area is pretty ridiculous and space is scarce as well.
When Kevin and I were looking for an apartment we stumbled on what seemed like a dream. Large two bedroom newly renovated apartment, centrally located, and decent rent. Only problem? Our bedroom is pretty small! We had to be creative with our furniture and settle for a queen sized bed (nothing bigger would fit!) but it works.

This past weekend was quite busy. I visited my grandpa in the hospital, went to a great dinner in Santa Monica with Kevin, and "crashed" his 10 year high school reunion. While we didn't go to the same high school, we grew up in the same town so I wasn't among complete strangers. Needless to say, it was interesting. Mine is in a few months and I'm unsure if I even want to go...

I can't tell you how excited I was to get my new dress from Odd & Dot. Basically Odd & Dot is composed of two super sweet girls from Indonesia who have the greatest thrifted finds and sell them on their Etsy store. This dress is absolutely perfect! I love the print and the pleated skirt is perfect for twirling around. I'll admit, I do it all the time :)

I feel like I've been inspired to wear bright colors lately. Colored tights are one of my favorite staples but I usually pair it with relatively neutral colors to balance it out. Today I went all out and mixed a bunch of blues and purples together :)

I bought this dress specifically for a family wedding. When it still feels like summer, wearing a summer dress is perfectly acceptable for a wedding. It's funny, both my brother's girlfriend and I bought our dresses from Modcloth for the wedding. I guess fashionable minds think alike!

Okay, so I did it. I went for red hair! I was nervous and excited but my friend Matt did an always amazing job. I'm still surprised when I look in the mirror, but it's a good thing :). Perfect timing for fall!

Ever since I was a child all I ever wanted to be was a ballerina. I took classes while I was young, but I realize now that I was more into the pink skirts and ballet shoes than the actual form of the dance. Which totally makes since now because I am instantly drawn to anything pink and frilly. Can you really blame me? This dress is so cute!

I'm really excited to announce my newest international giveaway! If you haven't heard me raving about Benefit (especially their mascara) already, you should know that their products are some of my favorite. I don't go a day without wearing the "They're Real!" mascara. So why not give away their Next Big Fling! gift set? It comes with a mini tube of their award winning mascara along with "The POREfessional" balm which minimizes the appearance of pores.
Ever since I saw these shoes in a Jeffrey Campbell catalog months ago, I knew I had to have them. The only problem was I had a very hard time shelling out 200 dollars for them. So naturally, I went on the hunt for the perfect knockoff. It took many Google searches and asking lots of different friends to finally find them. The best part? I got them for less than 40 bucks!
