Stylish Two Years in Los Angeles

As I sit down to write this post, I am almost choking up because I can't believe how fast time flies. Today marks exactly two years since I made the big move back to Los Angeles and the day my life changed forever. I feel like it was just yesterday that I was back in the heat of Arizona with my dad packing up my condo, and saying goodbye to friends and the life I had known for almost 4 years. I remember the drive to Cali so perfectly, me behind my dad in the U-Haul, so scared and yet so excited to start my new life as a real adult in LA! Moving into my grandmother's, only expecting to be there a few months, (it turned to almost 11 months) and starting the quest of finding a full time job. 
 
Well a lot has happened since and I feel I am such a better and stronger person. I have become closer than ever with my family, met a guy who I can see a real future with, and making so many memories, words can't even begin to explain. I owe most of my success to my amazing parents and sister who have, no matter, stood by me through thick and thin and supported me in every move, right or wrong, I have made. Also to my boyfriend, who has made 2013 the most incredible year and shown me that life is so different with a new and fresh perspective. To all my readers who have stood by me through the 4 years this blog has been up and running and always coming back. Here's to many more years in Los Angeles!
So until next time... Live Stylishly xo

Stylish Outfit: Boho Glam

 
Dress: LAmade // Jacket: BP Nordstrom // Sandals: Sam Edelman // Necklace: Vintage (similar)  // Belt: Urban Outfitters (similar)   // Bracelet: c/o Jami (similar)  // Watch: Nordstrom 
 
 We all know I love a great maxi dress, and when its printed and hi low, I am sold! Of course, this opinion might be bias because I work for the company, but I am obsessed with this LAmade Hi Low Maxi Dress. It's so perfect for wanting to glam it up boho style but without trying so hard. It was a bit cooler when I wore it, so I paired it with my fav denim jacket. Easy and chic, right? Thanks to Melody for snapping these pictures of me!

When I sat down to choose this month's SGOTM (how is July already over!?) all I could think about was Kate Middleton and how her new baby has been the biggest news of the month, well since I already chose Kate Middleton last year, I decided why not choose the next best thing, the aunt! Pippa Middleton is as equally as stylish as her sister and what I love about Pippa is she brings everything to reality (Kate does as well though) and really wears items that are attainable (umm yes she shops at Zara!) and so stylish. She was the obvious pick for this month's SGOTM pick because the royal family is all we can talk about, right? Hope everyone had a stylish weekend!
What is your favorite look on Pippa?

Stylish Jewelry Must Haves {Under $50}

Jewelry Must Haves
1. Bauble Bar $36
4. Ann Taylor $30
5. Bauble Bar $24

I have been on a jewelry craze lately and have caught myself spending hours on various jewelry websites, when if you know me, I have more jewelry than I know what to do with. I believe, a girl can never have too much jewelry and it sometimes can make an outfit just perfect. I have been scouring the web and narrowed down my top picks (all under 50 bucks) for what I am dying to have (next paycheck of course). PS I was not intending for all the items to be so pink and girly, but I guess I can't help it ;)
Hope everyone has a stylish weekend!

Stylish Tuesday Lusts

Stylish Tuesday Lusts

3.1 Phillip Lim Trapeze Bag 
Michael Kors Rose Gold Watch 
Stella McCartney Bag
Moschino Embellished Blazer
Valentino Spiked Flats
The fact that it's only Tuesday and I am already over this week, is a clear sign I need a break, or at least a mini break. Shopping usually clears my mind, well and my bank account, but sometimes it doesn't hurt to lust over things you wish you could own one day. A girl can dream, can't she?

Stylish Outfit: Mint and Polka Dots

 Dress: Forever 21 // Denim Vest: Forever 21 // Shoes: Sam Edelman Gigi Sandals // Clutch: c/o Gigi New York // Earrings: ShopBevel


It has been forever since I have posted an outfit, I have been slacking! This past weekend the bf and I headed down to the beach and of course I took full advantage of the gorgeous scenery and snapped some quick pictures. I bought this dress awhile back when I went through the "I have no dresses phase" and absolutely love how girly and fun it is! I decided to pair it with my denim vest (which I never seem to wear!) I also paired this dress with these gorgeous and fun elephant earrings I received from the awesome designers at ShopBevel.com They are offering Stylelista Confessions readers 25% off when you use the code BBSTUDS. (hurry this discount ends 7/31) They have some incredible pieces all designed by various independent designers from all over the world! These earrings were designed by J. Koppel from Berlin! Hope everyone had a fun and stylish weekend, and thanks to my bf for shooting these pictures!

How is it Monday already, I feel like it was just Friday! Hope everyone had a stylish weekend! The last few weeks have been insanely busy and since I took so much time off work, my budget has been cut too, so shopping has been something I must avoid in order to pay my bills (ahh the problems of adulthood). With no money to splurge, that doesn't mean I can't look and think about what I will buy when I get some extra cash, I am definitely excited for fall but while its still hot I wanted to share a few items I am lusting over and hopefully will get to add to my wardrobe soon!

2. Necklace $18
3. Chambray Top $25
4. Dotted Scarf $18
5. Zip up Hoodie $25
6. Burlap Bag $10

We all know I love a great target collaboration and when I found out that FEED was partnering up with Target to design a collection that helps hunger across America. When I was in NYC last year, FEED co founder, Lauren Bush, was one of the Lucky FABB speakers and she is really an inspiration. She works so hard for those that aren't as fortunate. This collaboration with Target is awesome because every purchase helps provide meals to children all over America, which is the least we can do right? They have some pretty incredible products too which makes it even more of a stylish summer must have! What's your favorite piece from the collaboration?
