Hey y’all! Mother’s Day is fast approaching (it’s on May 14th) and like you, I’ve been struggling to get my mom the perfect gift! My mom was recently diagnosed with cancer so I’m thinking of getting her something a little more personal and heartfelt then the above gifts but I’m also totally loving those as back-ups! I’m really loving Etsy right now and I’m totally thinking of having something personally customized for her!

Most of the gifts above are a little pricey depending on your given budget but anything you think your mom will love will do! I’m totally all about handmade gifts and cards and breakfast in bed! This day is about celebrating someone who means the world to you! I’m so fortunate to have a mom like mine – even if we fight and argue and butt head to head!

Hopefully this mini guide helps you find something for your mom(s)!

Wishing you lots of luck!

April Inspiration

Spring officially started about 2 weeks ago and I couldn’t be more thrilled – especially since it’s actually starting to feel like spring these past few weeks!april inspo

I’m so ready for spring and with Summer only months away I’m already pulling out my spring and summer wardrobe and I’m slowly packing away all my winter clothing!

So a few of you may know that I’m going to LA the 14th to visit some friends and I’m totally living off of certain color palettes right now which are inspiring me and what I’m into lately! I’m packing for my trip using mostly white, cream, black, pale green, baby pink, and light blue! These colors are not only beautiful but they’re also so fun and feminine and also super in right now.

Below is a collage featuring some of my inspiration other than colors and things that are influencing me!

collage 1

As you can tell from the collage/inspiration board, I’m super into the bohemian look right now and everything that has to do with it! I love the feminine and flirty vibe of the looks above – I’m especially loving the lace and the flowing white dresses! I’m also taking so much inspiration from flowers! My favorites are peonies but I’m loving these pretty pink roses! I also love the shades of brown which happen to compliment almost everything in this collage. I especially love the brown butcher paper that is used to wrap the flowers. I personally love getting fresh flowers in the city and having them wrapped like that for a more boho and organic vibe opposed to the usually plastic wrap. Another thing that has been inspiring me lately is architecture! I’m so obsessed with stopping and snapping pictures of pretty buildings and structures all around! This collage is full of my favorite things and it serves as the perfect April/Pre Los Angeles Inspiration Board.

Below are some of my favorite fashion pieces right now inspired by my above inspiration board that you can shop using the links below! I happen to own a lot of similar products to these!

1. Bomber Jacket (only $25) // 2. Lace Up Flats // 3. Denim Shorts  // 4. iPhone Case (similar) // 5. Cuff Bracelet // 6. Bikini Top // 7. Bandana // 8. Sandals // 9. Sunnies

I’m loving all these pieces right now and most of them are fairly priced and I would highly recommend picking some of the pieces up! If not, similar items can be found elsewhere for a variety of prices!

I’m totally into bomber jackets right now and I love them for going out! I just added a baby pink one to my wardrobe and I can’t wait to bring it to LA. Also, bandanas happen to be my thing right now! I love tying them around my neck as a statement piece!

Beach Please (Style Guide)

I don’t know about you but I’m super excited for warmer weather! Also, currently in the middle of trying to plan a trip to somewhere with a warmer climate! Even though the beach-pleasetemperature has been saying 20’s my heart has been saying 80’s and 90’s! I’ve started to start shopping for spring/summer clothing and I’m all about the relaxed beach look and resort wear! I’m so over cold weather and I’m ready to be sitting on the beach in a bathing suit with a book in one hand and  a mimosa in the other.

Lately, I’ve been starting to buy more and more summer-esque clothing and I’m loving all the muted colors that have been coming out for the upcoming season! I’ve always been a fan of muted and pastel shades and I’m super excited for all of these colors to be all over the place and easy to find! Here are a few of my favorites:

Colors from Colourlovers.com

Like I said, I’ve started buying more and more clothes for the summer to add to my already existing summer wardrobe. I’m loving tassels and stripes right now and I think they channel the beach-y vibe I’m going for perfectly! Right now Aerie has the cutest pieces for the summer and I’m eyeing literally everything (especially since they’re always doing sales)!  Aerie happens to be my favorite right now but Nordstrom and Forever 21 have some cute pieces as well that happen to fit this beach-y aesthetic!

I’ve said this probably a thousand times already but I just love the style of beach wear and I just can’t get enough of it. It really makes me contemplate living in new england! I’m also loving beach accessories right now and I love all the styles coming out right now! Here are a few pieces I’m currently loving and would love to get my hands on:

Cat Eye Sunnies // Striped Tote // Phone Case (half off) // Espadrilles // Floppy Hat (linked similar) // Bandana // Bronzer
Another thing I’m loving right now is one piece swimsuits! I did a swimwear guide here! I recently picked up a one piece that’s to die for featuring scallops, a plunging neckline and back, and the right amount of cheekiness and I’m in love! My favorite places to get swimsuits right now is Top Shop! Be sure to check out my post on those linked above!

What’s New at Target!

ballet

Target is my happy place and there’s no question about it. I go there 2-3x a week and lately while browsing I’ve been noticing quite a bit of baby pink and it turns out, Mossimo Supply Co. released a ballet collection! FYI it’s to die for! I’m loving everything from the collection an it’s really hard to say no to any of it! I’m a huge fan of baby pink and heather gray and I love how feminine and classic it all is! This is by far my favorite collection Target has released ever! The best thing about this collection is that everything is under $30!

Shop some of my favorite pieces below!

Cowl Pullover Sweater (just bought this for $8.50) // Skater Skirt // Wrap Bodysuit // Pink Tutu // Knit T-Shirt Dress // Pink Bomber Jacket // Wrap Legging // Cold Shoulder Sweater // Ruched Legging 

These were my favs from the collection and you can shop the rest of the collection here!

Happy shopping xo!
