Best Fashion Find with Ricki's

Cover up: c/o Ricki's - here // Dress: c/o Ricki's - here

Layering is not reserved for cooler temperatures, sometimes you just need a layer to add some dimension and interest to your outfit. So when Ricki's asked me to pick out a summer must-have, this short sleeve cover up was an easy pick.

Want to win a shopping spree to pick out your fave summer must-haves for you and your BFF? Well here is your chance! Follow @rickisfashion on Instagram and tag 3 of your friends in one of the contest posts before June 26th. Good luck!

HS Studio's Detox Brunch

My Sundays are typically "me days". That involves very little communication to the outside world and mini-pamper session to prepare myself for the week ahead. But when I got the invite from HS Studio to attend their detox brunch, sacrificing the communication to the outside world for a real pamper sesh was an easy decision!

It started by getting a Kerastase clay treatment followed by a Clarisonic Purification System - yes, the Clarisonic we have always associated with skin care can now help your scalp. This new in-salon treatment allows for pore detoxification and micro-circulation activation. We were all then treated to a blow out. Anytime someone else tames the mane for me is a good day. I obviously needed to re-energize after all that hard work that I didn't do, and what better way to do that than by slamming down a breakfast burrito from Envie #BurritoAndBlow

The next stage of getting detoxed was testing out Dermalogica's new Stress Positive Eye Lift aimed at reducing visible signs of stress. 

Did the detox work? Well I literally went into brunch with a cane and walked (I use this term very loosely) out.

Tuxedo Days

Heels: Jimmy Choo // Blouse: RW&CO

Every now and then, I will see something and it will spark a new life goal of mine. This time, while watching the season finale of Vanderpump Rules and witnessing Ariana in a tuxedo as a groomsman, my new life goal was established. I NEED to become a groomsman one day. I have been a bridesmaid twice and attended my share of weddings in various dresses and one thing that is common between all of them is rethinking going for that slice of cake because you're just not sure who will wint he Red Velvet vs. Spanx battle. Imagine being up there looking like a BOSS in tuxedo and a bow tie AND never questioning your dessert adventure. Sounds like holy matrimony to me.

1 Blazer 2 Looks

Blazer: c/o Ricki's - shop here // Scarf: Chermini - shop here

Versatility is an important aspect of your wardrobe. Not only is it better bank for your buck, but it's super boring to wear the same thing the same way all the time. So when Ricki's sent me this boyfriend blazer to style in two ways, I also took it as an opportunity to show the versatility of a silk scarf.

Little needs to be done to incorporate a blazer into work wear. A white blazer offers a good contrast over an otherwise all black look. Tying the silk scarf into a choker adds just enough visual interest. 

The scrunched up sleeve style of this blazer lends itself well for a more casual look. Pair it with a graphic tee, distressed denim, and add some touches with a pile of rings and a scarf tied around your wrist.

Hello Moto

Jacket: Splurge - on sale here // Velvet joggers: Zara // Shoes: Zara

There are several things I can talk about in this post:

1. Mixing textures of leather with velvet
2. How I'm pretty sure this is the first blog post of me in flats
3. How this jacket is currently on sale here!

But all that really comes to mind when I see this pink moto jacket are memories of my pink motorola razr, Man did we ever have some solid times together. RIP.

No Refund Policy

Duster: Dynamite // Camisole: Banana Republic // Pants: Dynamite // Heels: Aldo

There is something about the process of refunding or exchanging am item that I just hate. So when I received these pants and they were way too big, I just hung them up in my closet anyway. Fast forward a couple of months and 21 burritos, and they're a perfect fit. I'm not really sure whether this is something to be proud of..
