YAY for Friday! I can't believe that this weekend is technically the last weekend of summer! This summer has flown by! I can't wait to relax at the beach with family and friends and then Tuesday is my big NYC trip! Hope everyone has a stylish long weekend!

Stylish Outfit: End of Summer White

We moved offices at work and I decided it was time to shoot an outfit post in the new space! Its a bit darker but it was fun playing around with the colors. Its warm yet again here in LA so with Labor Day right around the corner, I am wearing my white pants for as long as I can! I love my Dolce Vita Archer Sandals and this tank is awesome because it has sequins on the back. Happy Thursday! Stay tuned to my insta.gram tonight to see a special photo shoot I am doing :)

Stylish Fall 2012 Shoe Must Haves

While I might live in Southern California and the weather is always nice, I still try to embrace the seasons changing as much as possible, and since Fall is right around the corner it might be time to start wearing things other than sandals (even though I love them). I am a boot fanatic, as you probably already know, but am starting to get into heels and flats as well. I decided to compile a list of shoes I am lusting over for fall! See my picks below.
1. Wanted Motor Boot $60 from DSW
2. Splendid Sanford Oxford $98
3. Steve Madden "Kstudd Flats" $50
4. Suede Loafers $27 from Lulus
5. Madden Girl Leopard Ankle boot $59 from Lulus

August Stylish Girl of the Month: Kristen Bell

I swear this month literally flew by, I can't believe its almost September and summer is coming to an end. While I hate saying goodbye to summer (and luckily I really don't have to because I live in SoCal) I know its time to welcome fall and because its the end of the month, its time for my pick for Stylish Girl of the Month. I may be a bit bias, but I thought it was appropriate to pick a fellow blonde as this is the end of summer. Ironically, I saw my pick having dinner at my favorite Mexican place earlier this year and I have always loved her effortless style. So my pick for August is none other than Kristen Bell. I first saw Kristen as she was the voice of the mysterious Gossip Girl, on the hit show and then she was hysterical in Forgetting Sarah Marshall. She is a very down to earth gal and her style reflects that, which is why she makes a great pick for SGOTM. See my favorite outfits she's worn below.
from left to right:
Kristen is so elegant in this Reem Acra gown she wore to host the CMT Awards.
I love this Jenni Kanye dress Kristen wore to the Do Something Awards. 
Kristen is really able to pull off just about every type of look like she does here in this Jenny Packham jumpsuit.
Even dressed casual, in Current Elliot skinnies and a Vince Camuto top and heels, she looks chic and stylish.
My favorite look on her was the Tommy Hilfiger dress she wore to this years Met Gala.

Stylish Big (Travel) News

Many of you know that I have been lucky enough to travel across the globe, but the one place I haven't been to is so close to home, New York City. Well that's finally going to change as my company is sending me to NYC next week to attend Lucky Magazine's "FABB Conference" and I couldn't be more excited. I will get to be amongst the top tier bloggers and finally get to see NYC the way I have dreamt of. I feel incredibly blessed to have been given this opportunity and cannot wait to share everything via all my social media accounts as well as spread the word about the amazing company I work for! I am excited to meet so many amazing bloggers so please let me know if your going to be attending!

Stylish Outfit: Black and Blue

For the first time in what seems like forever, the sun wasn't out in LA, and somehow when I picked out my outfit, I knew it was going to be a "blue day". As I have mentioned before, I am a bargain shopper and this past weekend I was out with my mom and came across this adorable dress in none other than Marshall's! Its the perfect dress to wear in winter or summer as I can pair it with boots and tights as it gets cooler. My friend and coworker let me borrow her beautiful Celine bag that I am just dying over to make the pictures just that much more stylish! Thanks to Melody for shooting these fab shots!

Stylish Outfit: Summertime Yellow

As a blonde, yellow can definitely wash me out so I tend to stay away from yellow, but my yellow pants are an exception. I got these yellow pants back during the Spring for my trip to Hawaii and have been in love with them ever since. Since summer is slowly coming to an end and yellow pants won't really be an option come fall, I wanted to shoot these with an outfit before it was too late. Thanks to my lovely coworker Melody for shooting the pictures.

Stylish September Issues

Since as long as I can remember I have read every fashion magazine ever. I grabbed my first copy of Vogue at the age of 6 and every month I get giddy for the latest issue of my favorite magazines to arrive. September is practically my favorite month since the issues are bigger and better and I have been collecting the September issues of Vogue for the last 5 years! This year's September issues all have great cover girls and I am reading each magazine over and over again. See some of my favorite magazine's September's issues below.

Stylish Jewelry Designer: Blessed Charm

My favorite PR person, Shae, always tells me about the hottest up and coming brands and when I received an email yesterday about ANOTHER accessories line, I knew I had to share with my readers! Another emerging designer from the beautiful city of Los Angeles, Blessed Charm was started by Emily Rabinowitz. 
"Emily Rabinowitz discovered it was natural to create jewelry that could universally represent sentimental connections that hopefully anyone is able to feel regardless of personal experience or religion. After ten years in the entertainment industry, living in Los Angeles, and working in corporate environments Emily decided it was time to make a change and enjoy life. She made a commitment to pursue her creative outlet full time. As the daughter of an artist/interior designer and an architect Emily learned to appreciate color and the satisfaction of physically building something. As a teenager Emily would join her mother in jewelry making and bead creations. It was at age 21 when her mother handed her an old dismantled heirloom and said “why don’t you see what you can do with it,” that sparked Emily’s desire to design fine jewelry. For the past fourteen years she has continued to develop her designs as well as her techniques in making innovative pieces of jewelry that she and her clients can enjoy forever.She is reminded everyday of her blessings by her friends, family, including her husband Armand, her beautiful kids Owen and Joely and two fabulous dogs known as her "Furry Children." It is Emily's wish that others who wear her jewelry will exude the same sense of appreciation for the gifts in their own lives."

This line is really unique and really stood out to me and I am excited to see her grow into a huge accessory designer I know she will be! Blessed Charm is already a celeb hit and is a must have on my fall wish list!
Thanks to Shae at Pivotal PR for the images and info!

I am SO excited about this weekend because my little sister is finally coming back to SoCal and is staying with me this weekend as we wait for our parents to make the trek from Texas!

Stylish Cool Me Down

It has been hotter than you know what here in LA and anything I can do to stay cool is necessary! Thank goodness my apartment has AC or I might be dying. As I was on Pinterest yesterday roaming as usual, I came across these things (mostly yummy treats) that definitely helped cool me down, because every girl needs a stylish cool me down once in awhile right?
