Cotton candy.

Purple blouse via Crossroads Trading, Gold vintage Chanel pin, Pink American Apparel high-waisted shorts, Ivory vintage Chanel purse, Arm candy: gifted Free bracelet from BCBGeneration, Gold armor ring via Crossroads Trading, Tan Zara sandals.

Besides mixing prints, I have this never ending love for mixing fun colors -- this particular purple and pink combo always reminds me of cotton candy, or even that watermelon candy (my favorite). Accessorizing probably is my favorite part in creating outfits.  I love how this blouse from Crossroads Trading comes with a chain connecting the collar -- an instant necklace. To add to it as well, I placed my gold vintage Chanel pin as a sort of bow-tie.  And introducing another new shoe to add to my zara collection, meet these pretty nude/white sandals (reminiscent of Chloe's I am dying for).  I thank Zara to fulfill my love for cray expensive shoes.

Hope you have a great start of your week lovelies! I'm loving how it's getting to 90 degrees in the bay area this week. FINALLY sun and warm weather.

Inspirafashion x Outrage Fashion $50 Gift Card Giveaway!

Black Celine Dion shirt, Blue Urban Outfitters distressed jean shorts, Brown c/o Handbag Heaven leopard satchel, Arm candy: gold c/o Outrage Fashion hope bracelet & 'Sarah' arrow bracelet, gold cuff via Crossroads Trading, White Tildon heels.

I've always loved dressing casual but mixing in fun chic elements -- here I paired a laid back tee with jean shorts (I lovee how the top plays off the Celine shirt with singer Celine Dion) ;).  For accessories, added this pretty leopard satchel from Handbag Heaven (can't get over how pretty it is and goes with anything), and my all-time new favorite heels, simply because they remind me of A. Wang's I can't afford.  
For arm candy, these two beautiful gold bracelets are my new faves --  always drawn to anything with shiny rhinestones.  Which brings me to the sweet part of this post!...

Print play.

Green c/o StyleMint Verona top, Blue American Apparel denim skirt, Black Steve Madden Realove sandal heels, Gold arrow ring via Crossroads Trading, Tan c/o Handbag Heaven Hailey Studded Leopard Bag.

I always love mixing prints and colors, this Verona top from StyleMint and the Leopard satchel from Handbag Heaven, complemented each other perfectly. Polka dots and leopard. With the mixing of prints I wanted the outfit to be more casual with the denim skirt and simple sleek heels. It was a really nice day out too in Berkeley, my fave city of course.

Which brings me to an exciting part of this post...I will be a guest judge for a fun "Style For Your City" contest by StyleMint. We'll be judging entries by how well you represent your style in your city.  
The contest is on Facebook where you can enter a photo of your outfit, and you can enter here

The contest ends on April 17th and the first winner will get 5 StyleMint credits, 2nd winner will receive 3 credits and 3rd winner will receive 1 credit.

Fading flower.

Embracing Spring with open arms...describes this outfit perfectly, with an office lady-like twist.  I noticed I haven't shared my work outfits on my blog yet, so this pays tribute to what was long overdue. I usually love wearing high-waisted pencil skirts with fun printed blouses.  The satchel is one of my ultimate faves from Tory Burch.  To top the outfit off, are these sleek yet classy Steve Madden Realove  heels.  And of course, my favorite sunnies, Karen Walker Number One's.
I'm so excited for few things coming up..this weekend I'm seeing Rihanna and A$AP Rocky in concert with my fave girl Chanda.  Then we're heading with couple of friends to Coachella next weekend!!  I'm so ready to enjoy the 95 degree weather (a.k.a. over this bay area gloomy rainy weather!).  Be sure to follow me on my instagram for my Coachella adventures (and I'll be guest-gramming for Crossroads Trading on Friday, April 12th!). 

Have an amazing weekend ahead Beautifuls! Ahh it's Friday and the weekend's here ;).

P.S. Continuing the tradition of song titles for blog post titles. One of my faves from Yuna.
