A Stylish July Recap

I cannot believe today is the last day of July. This month is my favorite month for obvious reasons but I can't beleive how fast it flew by. It started off amazing with my 24th birthday. I then traveled home to Houston to visit my parents and catch up with friends. I then after being gone almost all summer got a weekend to myself of relaxation and catch up. Work hasn't slowed down which is good and bad but I am looking forward to August because I finally get to see R at the end of the month! I decided to recap my month of July through my Instagram photos. If you don't already follow me, make sure to follow me to see my daily life! Happy last day of July!
So until next time... Live Stylishly

So I went on the hunt for some adorable shorts that are perfect from work to weekend! Hope everyone is having a great week!

Stylish Outfit: Summertime Print Mixing

One of my favorite trends that I have yet to try until today is print mixing. I love anything printed and while sometimes mixing prints together can go all wrong, in some cases they can go all right! When one of my SCBS members came to me and said they wanted the monthly linkup topic to be print mixing I was so excited to finally get to try out the trend. I did a bit of research to make sure I paired the right prints together and here are the top four things I learned from my girls over at Lauren Conrad's blog and various other sites I referenced before putting this look together!

Stylish Rules for Mixing Prints:
**The most important thing I learned is not to figure out what matches per say but to figure out what pairs well together.**
1. Start with a bold piece then use that as your jumping off point for the entire outfit.
2. The easiest ways to mix prints is mixing polka dots and stripes if you are a little weary of mixing prints together at first.
3. Choosing a color family will make pairing much easier (I didn't necessarily do this in my print mixing, but its a good tip!)
4. Don't Over Accessorize this can ruin you look! Keep it simple since the prints are enough!

Okay so now that you know some of the "rules" persay I decided to take a loud tribal print pant and pair it with an all over star silk tank. Normally I would just wear a white tee or v neck with these pants but I love how this top brings out the color in the pants and doesn't overwhelm you either. I kept my accessories simple of course with just a few solid bracelets and a red simple clutch. Voila! It was so much easier and fun to print mix than I had thought! 
Top: H&M (similar) // Pants: Forever 21 // Flats: Old Navy (almost identical) // Clutch: c/o Susu Handbags // Watch: c/o Caravelle // Necklace: BaubleBar (similar)

Now I want to hear from all of you! What are your favorite prints to mix and match together!? Don't forget to stop by SoCal Blogger Society and see how the members interpreted the print mixing topic! Thanks to my best Cassie for shooting these pics!

July Stylish Girl of the Month: Kate Hudson

When I sat down to write this month's stylish girl of the month like most months I tried to think of whom I haven't already picked and when this person's name came to mind I was shocked I had not picked her before (correct me if I am wrong but I looked in my archives and could not find her!) have been a fan of Kate Hudson from back to Almost Famous but the movie that really showed me Kate was "How To Lose A Guy In Ten Days" If you know me, you know thats one of my all time favorite movies! Kate Hudson has a unique and envious style that just makes you want to be her! I even went on the hunt for that yellow dress seen in the movie to wear to my prom. (I went with a different dress but I did love the replica I found!) Kate basically started the whole "hippie" trend in my opinion and to this day still rocks it so perfectly. See below why Kate is the perfect pick for July's Stylish Girl of the Month!

From left to right:
1. You might remember seeing this dress on my best dressed list from my Oscar recap, but this Atelier Versace gown is absolutely stunning on Kate!
2. I don't think there is a color Kate can't wear and this blue Reem Acra gown is no exception!
3. Even off the red carpet, Kate is poised and chic in this Wilt Long Sleeve Pullover and Goldsign Jeans!
4. This yellow Emilio Pucci top and white mini skirt are to die for!
5. Kate shows she can rock anything including this Prive gown.
6. This Zuhair Murad gown is absolutely stunning and Kate wears it impeccably!

Stylish Color Lovin: Purple

Stylishly Purple
Clockwise
1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // // 6

The other day I caught myself having a color obsession all at once. I had purple nails, a purple phone case, a purple purse, purple toes and even my water bottle was purple and I realized I have an addiction to the color purple. Ever since I was little I have loved being girl and purple and pink have always been colors I gravitated towards. Growing up my room was purple and I always went for the purples in stores. Lately I have even been wanting to go with the mermaid look and dye parts of my hair purple. I decided that if you love a color then keep on lovin' it so I rounded up some purple items that I am lusting over on this Wednesday! What colors do you notice yourself wearing over and over again?

If you know anything about me you know that I almost always gravitate toward anything neon and this neon pink dress is no exception. While it doesn't look as bright in the pictures as it really is, I must say I am obsessed with this dress! I love the color and the fit and overall everything. I went for more neutral tones with my accessories and paired it with my favorite floppy hat and clutch with simple brown sandals. I kept the jewelry simple with a necklace, watch and some midi rings. I love this look because its perfect for day to night! Hope everyone is having a fantastic Tuesday!

Stylish Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Picks


While summer might be in full swing, I can't help but think about fall and the cooler weather and wardrobe changes. Nordstrom knew the perfect time to peek my fall  lusts with their annual Anniversary Sale, which starts in stores tomorrow! If you are a Nordstrom card holder you could get early access to the sale before the public. Thanks to my mom I was able to sneak a peek at some of the items on sale and boy am I wanting everything. As I do for every major Nordstrom sale, I decided to put together my top picks! The sale starts tomorrow July 18th-August 4th. What are you dying over from Nordstrom?

A Stylish Houston Trip Recap

So the last few days have been eventful. I had a wonderful weekend in Houston with my family and was bummed I had to leave on Sunday evening. I started feeling icky on Sunday and thought it was maybe just me being tired. To top it all off my flight was delayed nearly three hours. I didn't get back to LA until midnight and by this time was feeling worse. Long story short I had some type of food poisoning and stayed home from work on Monday and slept the entire day. I woke up for maybe three hours total the entire day and then went straight back to work Tuesday, so I am back now able to write a blog post! I decided to share a few pictures from my Houston trip. I spent the first day shopping with my momma in beautiful Rice Village! While it was hotter than you know what, I managed to get some great pieces for summer and fall! Saturday I spent the morning drinking coffee with my parents, running errands, and then spending the rest of the day by the lake. I got to see my favorite little nugget Kensley and catch up with old family friends. Sunday was a little more low key as we went to my favorite mexican place and then I had to go home (which was an adventure). While I might love living in SoCal, my roots are in Texas and I forget how lucky I was to grow up there, even if I complain about it at times. Hope everyone is having a fantastic week so far!

Stylish Outfit: Chevron Printed Mini

Dress: c/o Deb Shops // Shoes: c/o Deb Shops // Clutch: c/o Gigi New York  // Necklace and Bracelets: c/o Deb Shops

We all know I love a great printed dress, well a great dress for that matter and this one is no exception! I love the chevron print on this Deb Shops dress and the neon link belt is the perfect accent. Since getting this a few weeks ago I have already worn it 3 or 4 times, its so comfy and so stylish for the warm days SoCal has been having. I paired the dress this time with flat black sandals and a simple black clutch, since the dress does all the talking! Hope everyone is having a fantastic Tuesday!

Stylish Summer Must Have: Rompers

Summer Rompers

1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 
Going back to work after a long weekend is probably the worst thing ever. While I had a low key weekend, I enjoyed not having to get up early and not having plans. This week is also short for me because I am off to Houston on Thursday. This month is already flying by which makes me sad because all my exciting plans are up after this weekend and no more trips are planned. Lets hope I get to go see R in Florida for Labor Day, keeping my fingers crossed! Okay so enough of my rambling on to the fashion! I have been living in my Deb Shops romper, which many of you might know from my Instagram page, but I am determined to get a few more for the summer since they are by far the best thing to wear when its hot! I went on the hunt online for cute and stylish and of course affordable rompers and found these adorable options! Who would have thought I would be posting about rompers when just a few months ago I wouldn't even go near them! Hope everyone had a great long weekend and is slowly getting back into the swing of things this week!

I can't believe I turn 24 today, it feels like this past year has literally flown by. It's weird to say that I am 24 and that its my birthday because I celebrated over the weekend and have work today, but I have been told thats part of growing up. I wore this outfit a few weekends ago and I love the saying. It's the perfect saying to ring in my 24th! Hope everyone is having a great Tuesday!
