Exuberant Easter Parade

Erstwilder Easter

Are you ready for spring and more importantly, Easter?  Erstwilder just released their newest springy Easter collection: Exuberant Easter Parade.  This collection is just as pretty as it is large!  You can find sixteen different brooches, two pairs of earrings, and one necklace.  I'm sharing my picks from this range below!

Erstwilder Happy Hatchling Brooch

Erstwilder Charming Chicks Earrings

Brooch- c/o Erstwilder
Earrings- c/o Erstwilder
Top- Sister Jane
Skirt- SHEIN
Lipstick- Sephora Collection Cream Lip Stain in Pink Souffle

Without a doubt, this pairing is my favorite of the bunch!  Happy Hatchling is perfectly Easter-inspired and a nice, larger size.  He looks so great when paired with the Charming Chicks earrings.  They look cute as a button on their own but I'm just head over heels in love with all these chicks together!


Erstwilder Chocolate the Chipmunk Brooch

Top- Sister Jane
Skirt- SHEIN
Lipstick- Sephora Collection Cream Lip Stain in Pink Souffle

I have the biggest soft spot for all the woodland critters so Chocolate the Chipmunk was a must-have!  Chocolate has the most gorgeous marbled resin and she carrying the cutest little flower in her mouth.  While this one can definitely be worn on Easter, you can incorporate Chocolate to your outfit any time of year!


Erstwilder Dolly the Dainty Brooh

Top- Sister Jane
Skirt- SHEIN
Lipstick- Sephora Collection Cream Lip Stain in Pink Souffle

The most perfect little lamb you ever did see!  Dolly is a total fashionista with her little pink bow.  She has a beautiful white marbled resin and she's a great larger size too.  Just like Chocolate, she can be worn all year around as well!

You can shop the entire Easter collection on the Erstwilder website right now!  Which cutie is your favorite?  Let me know in the comments below!

Small Business Style: Nooworks

I've been adding more content to my YouTube channel and I've decided to start something that's close to my heart: a small business style series!  As you may know, I love supporting small, woman-owned, and POC-owned businesses.  Since I don't blog as much as I used to, some of those amazing businesses never get any love here.  I wanted to start this series with one of my favorites, NooworksNooworks is a woman-owned business that not only produces their ethical clothing here in the USA, they also hire woman to design the textiles too!  You can read more about Nooworks and check out my style video below!

Nooworks is a small team of women who strive to make fun, funky clothing.  They produce all their garments right here in California and offer everyone who works with them a living wage.  They've also extended their sizing!  You can find most of their garments in sizes XXS-3X.  They release a few prints each season, usually featuring an artist or two.  They offer those prints in a variety of styles and fabrics.  I usually stick with their stretch poplin (which is everything I'm wearing here) but I also love their rayons and stretch jersey.  I only featured four styles in this video but I have so much more than that!  My current favorite styles are the Eliza dress and the overalls.

Nooworks is very popular with their fan base, which means that things can sell out pretty quickly!  They're very active on Instagram and always give you a heads up what and when they release items (usually on Wednesdays).  I've learned the hard way, so if I end up loving something I always order it ASAP!

I wear a size small comfortably in pretty much everything.  I could size down to an XS in some items (especially if they're in the jersey fabric), but I tend to take the larger of my two sizes.  Their sizing is usually spot-on with their size charts and I've never had a fit issue.

Check out my style video below!


You can shop their styles online or check out their stores in Los Angeles and San Fransisco!  Have you ordered from Nooworks before?  What's your favorite style?  Let me know in the comments!

Psychic Powers Social Club

Psychic Vampires Social Club Psychic Vampires II Tee

Spring is on the horizon but my wardrobe lives in the Halloween section all year around!  I was super excited to receive the newest t-shirt design from Psychic Powers Social Club.  All their designs are amazing (I have a collection of them) but this Psychic Vampire II tee just speaks to my spooky soul.  Read more about this outfit and get more info on this fantastic small business below!

Top- c/o Psychic Powers Social Club
Skirt- Vixen by Micheline Pitt
Boots- Steve Madden
Hat- Target
Earrings- c/o Betsey Johnson
Lipstick- c/o Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick in Sad Girl

This unisex tee is made from a very soft cotton/poly blend and has a great tailor-made fit.  I love the slight amount of stretch it has, it really is one of the softest tees in my wardrobe.  Thankfully, this tee has no tag... it's printed on the inside so it's super comfortable.  The design on this tee is absolutely perfect!  I love the artwork and the large size of it.  This tee is available in sizes S-XXL.  I'm comfortably wearing a small, which is my usual unisex size.  You can find this design and many more creepy-cool tees on their website right now!

Mickey Hearts Minnie

Harvey's Convertible Crossbody Disney Mickey Heart Minnie Halogen x Atlantic Pacific Heart Coat

Is there anything more classic than Mickey and Minnie?  As a huge Disney fan, I love the idea of adding some everyday magic to my outfits.  Harvey's is a wonderful small business right here in southern California and they make the most amazing Disney bags.  This Mickey and Minnie bag is not only reversible, it can be converted from a shoulder bag to a backpack!  You can read more about this outfit and this adorable bag below!

Sunglasses- Amazon
Lipstick- Sephora Collection Cream Lip Stain in Always Red

Harvey's is known for their textured seatbelt bags.  As someone who owns a few, I can say that these bags are super sturdy and keep your valuables safe and intact (much like the seatbelt in your car).  This bag is shaped like a mouse face and features Mickey on one side and Minnie on the other.  So you can sport whoever you're feeling more like that day!  It also comes with a double sided charm that I absolutely love.  I've been carrying this cutie as a crossbody bag but I can't wait to take it to Disneyland and change it into a backpack.  This bag is made right here in the USA and is totally vegan.  Seriously, anything from Harvey's is beautifully made and it feels great to support an ethical small business.  Make sure to check out their classic and Disney inspired items!

I've been dying to wear this outfit for what feels like forever!  It's been pretty cold and this coat is more of a layering piece than something that actually keeps you warm.  But the weather has warmed a little and I finally broke it out!  The silhouette of the coat is my absolute favorite: the tiered swing skirt, bell sleeves, and fitted bodice.  It's a vintage inspired dream!  Plus, Kevin bought me the matching skirt for my birthday which definitely amped up the cuteness factor.  I feel like this coat will be great for spring, especially with my favorite jeans and a light sweater.  Basically, I'm just trying to warn you that you'll be seeing it here again soon :)

Star Wars Style

If you're new here then you'll find out very quickly: I am obsessed with Star Wars.  Maybe it's weird but Star Wars, in some small way at least, is definitely a part of my everyday life.  Which means it effects my fashion too!  Whether I'm Disneybounding at Galaxy's Edge in Disneyland or just going to work, I have several fun outfits for every possible occasion.  I've highlighted a few of my favorites and believe me, it was so difficult to narrow it down to just four!
