Cotton Candy Stripes & Sprinkles Cupcakes

Location: Sprinkles Cupcakes - Stanford Shopping Center
Sometimes I have a relentless sweet tooth and I need to satisfy those cravings.  My husband thinks I'm addicted to ice cream and he's probably right.  Another sweet treat I cannot resist is cupcakes and luckily for me, Sprinkles is right in my neighborhood!  


Outfit details:

Pink and white stripe cold shoulder top (sold out in pink but still available in blue here and here)...similar pink version can be found here
These white denim jeans (similar here and here)
My favorite pink sunglasses (similar here)
Flat summer sandals (similar here and here)




Have you guys tried the pineapple upside down cupcake?  It's loaded with caramelized pineapple filling and topped with pineapple buttercream frosting!  Oh my goodness, it's heavenly!  I occasionally pick up a variety of flavors and bring them home for my family to enjoy.  Every once in a while I'll swing by on my lunch break and bring some back to the office for my co-workers!  They're usually gone before the end of the day because they are so yummy and irresistible and they make for fabulous sweet treats for office celebrations!





If you love to bake but don't consider yourself a pastry chef, like most of us, Sprinkles sells their cupcake mixes in these cute colorful cylinders.  Each container makes 12 cupcakes and includes the trademark modern dot decoration and frosting recipe!  Choose your favorite flavor from red velvet, dark chocolate, vanilla, or pumpkin and get your baking on! Don't forget, Father's Day is coming this weekend and cupcakes are always a great idea to help celebrate!




OK...enough about my favorite sweet tooth cravings and cupcake flavors!  You probably opened this blog post because you saw this cute pink and white stripe cold shoulder top and thought "I want one...where did she get that?"  I'm here to give you all the details in my shopping links below!  




I love wearing summer stripes!  When I saw this cotton candy pink and white striped cold shoulder top it immediately reminded me of summer...a  colorful beach boardwalk, pink and white striped awnings that decorate Palm Beach storefronts, and pink and white striped shade umbrellas that dot beach resorts around the world!  I just love the color pink!  
   


I decided to wear my white denim and some comfy flat summer sandals like these to complete this look keeping it casual chic.  This top would also look fantastic paired with blue distressed denim jeans or shorts and Converse sneakers like these for a casual look.  You can also dress it up with a nice pair of tailored sailor pants like this cute pair from J.Crew and some cute ankle tie espadrilles such as these which would be an appropriate and daring office look!.

Striped Culotte Jumpsuit

Location: Alameda, CA

My husband loves to take our boys fishing in the San Francisco Bay.  You can catch everything from striped bass, halibut, sturgeon, perch, and a variety of sharks.  We usually launch our boat at the marina in Alameda by Coast Guard Island. The drive out to the main body of water is very scenic peppered with outdoor restaurants at Jack London Square, colorful houseboats, and a variety of cargo ships at the Oakland harbor.  




We had a great day catching and releasing a variety of fish, including a very large and feisty sting ray!  We enjoyed a picnic on our boat and some time in the sunshine taking in the beautiful views of San Francisco and the bridges.  As the sun began to set, the skies turned to a gorgeous cotton candy pink color and I couldn't resist capturing a few pictures at the docks.  I am wearing a Mimi Chica striped culotte romper and this white monogrammed sunhat from The Pink Monogram (last seen here).  Unfortunately, this romper sold out online, so I am sharing some similar options below.  


You can find my monogrammed sun hat at The Pink Monogram.  They specialize in all things personalized from bags, hats, shoes, and much more!  I always make sure I wear plenty of sunscreen when I'm outside and a sunhat to protect my face from the sun!

Summer Blues in Stripes

Location: Alameda, CA
Is your wardrobe ready for summer?  I've been doing quite a bit of shopping for my upcoming vacation and all I can say is I've got the summer blues!  I'm sure you've noticed the explosion of pale blues, summer bright whites, and classic stripes all over Pinterest, Instagram, and fashion blogs!  This is the quintessential look of summer style!

What I'm Wearing:
These blue and white striped shorts (similar here, here, and here)
This cool and crisp summer white ruffle top (similar here and here)
My favorite straw hat I will wear all summer long (similar here and here)
My classic Tory Burch gold Miller sandals (similar here and here)
   



When it comes to summer fashion, I love to wear shorts!  I've started quite a collection of solid colors and prints over the years and find that this is the first thing I grab when looking for something casual and comfy to wear on a warm spring or hot summer day!  I picked up these blue and white striped shorts this past Memorial Day weekend!  I generally prefer a 5" inch inseam with a mid rise fit because I am tall and feel a bit more comfortable wearing a slightly longer length.  However, I did roll them up slightly for this blog post and I also like that versatility.  I knew they would be perfect for summer as they are made in a cool linen blend material which is so soft and comfortable!   



I decided to wear them with this crisp white one shoulder ruffle top!  I adore the cute structured ruffle and the length is perfect to wear un-tucked over shorts, skirts, or leggings!  This will be one of my summer go to tops and I may go back and get a few other colors!  It also comes in black, royal blue, and tangerine orange!  Also, it's currently on sale for 40% off, so you may want to pick one up before they sell out quickly!




I topped off my summer blues in stripes outfit with my favorite straw hat that I usually wear all summer long and my classic gold Tory Burch Miller sandals.  I've had both of these items for a number of years and they never go out of style and always look great!  


I hope you all enjoyed your Memorial Day holiday weekend!  Hopefully you were able to spend some time with your loved ones creating memories and doing something fun!  I'd like to take this opportunity to thank all the military service men and women both past and present for their commitment and sacrifices to protect and serve our country!  Both my mom and dad served in the US Marine Corps and now lie to rest in the Sacramento Valley National Cemetery.   Therefore, this holiday holds a special place in my heart!

By the way, I started a blog newsletter recently and would love for you to subscribe!  It's a great way to connect with all of you about new posts, great sales you don't want to miss, Q&A on various fashion, beauty, home decor, and travel topics, and so much more!  You can subscribe here...Don't worry, I won't overcrowd your inbox!  Also, don't forget you can shop all of the looks from my blog on my shop page!

Yellow Tie Back Maxi Dress

I love bold and bright colors for spring and summer but by far one of my favorites is yellow!  It's a known fact that colors affect your mood and if that's the case, I should wear yellow more often!  It's a cheerful, happy, energetic color that will put a smile on your face all day long and brighten your outlook!
  



I recently purchased this sunny yellow tie back maxi dress.  I thought it would be an easy dress to pack in my suitcase for my upcoming summer vacation!  It's a sexy form fitting silhouette with thin spaghetti straps and a darling bow that ties in the back!  I ordered a medium online, however, I would suggest sizing down to get a slender and smooth look!  I selected a few other sunny yellow dress options in my shop link below but here are a few other favorites I found!

This beautiful Loup Charmant lemon yellow cotton dress
This Mara Hoffman yellow and white stripe cut out midi dress
and this lemon print camisole dress

I decided to wear my floppy sun hat to keep the sun off my face.  I love the big black bow on this one which is only $26 and gives the whole look a summer vibe!         



My niece and I were out shopping and we decided to visit Cocola Bakery at Stanford.  They have the yummiest treats and baked goodies.  We enjoyed sitting in the outdoor patio, sipping on our lattes and indulging in some decadent desserts!   I couldn't leave without picking up a few delicious sweets to bring home to my family!  





   

I love anything with pom poms and/or tassels, so when I saw this colorful  pom pom straw tote, I knew I needed to get it!  There are a lot of expensive brands out there but I found this one for only $45!  I think it adds a pop of whimsy and fun and is a perfect accessory to add to any spring/summer outfit!  Check out some of my other favorite finds in my shop link below!    






I hope you all are enjoying your week so far!  If you find you need a little mood pick me up, start with your wardrobe!  Try bold and bright colors and I promise you will look and feel fabulous! By the way, I started a blog newsletter recently and would love for you to subscribe!  It's a great way to connect with all of you about new posts, great sales you don't want to miss, Q&A on various fashion, beauty, home decor, and travel topics, and so much more!  You can subscribe here...don't worry, I won't overcrowd your inbox!  Also, don't forget you can shop all of the looks from my blog on my shop page!

Shorts Weather


I'm so thrilled the temperatures are rising and it's beginning to feel more like "shorts weather" here in the San Francisco bay area!  It's time to indulge in a spring spa pedicure, stock up on your self tanner lotion, and reorganize your closet to swap out the fall/winter essentials for spring and summer must haves! One of my favorite go to spring/summer essentials next to sandals and sundresses are shorts! I could pretty much wear shorts all day every day if the weather permitted me to do so!  

I've gathered up some of my favorite current shorts styles to shop below!  I am a big fan of solid bright colors, fun spring and summer patterns, and embellishments such as bows, tassels, and pom poms!           

 What is your favorite summer must have?

Enjoy Shopping!
