High on Denim

Sometimes DIY projects gone wrong can turn out not too shabby. I ran out of bleach while trying to turn these vintage Levi’s white but instead the result was this nicely faded stone wash.

Have you ever DIY’d something and though it has gone wrong but it turned out perfect?

Hello lovelies, as you’re reading this, I’m probably baking in the hot & humid desert of Las Vegas (100+ degrees). Not to worry, we are armed with SPF 25 and brought plenty of Capri suns and other various juices to keep us hydrated for days. Have a fabulous weekend, stay out of trouble and talk to you soon! Kisses!

The Hudsons

Finding the perfect pair of jeans is like searching for the perfect guy. There’s always something that’s not so perfect…It’s way too big, or way too tight, too long, or just too damn short…Now ladies, if you’re following me here, you know that I’m talking about the waist of the denims are too big, the fit around the thighs are too tight, the length is too long and sometimes you just don’t want them as short as capris….resulting in so many nip tucks to per-fect your denims. If you’re patient however, you might just one day come across a perfect pair without any need to fix them. :)

Pink Blueberry

Blazers has always been a wardrobe essential. With the right fit, a good blazer can instantly dress up jeans, skirts, the LBDs, shorts and even leggings. Although a basic black blazer is simply one of the most versatile item and can go with virtually everything…a  cheerfully bright blazer can do the same and can bring instant glam into your wardrobe.

Don’t be fool by the bright pink color of this blazer. With the right outfit you can take this from playtime to business hours….but as you can see I’m all about playtime these days, so mixing this vibrant structured blazer with blue floral shorts and adding a splash of leopard completed the fun summertime vibe I was going for. Hey, living in the Bay Area, the weather is quite unpredictable (not to mention bi-polar) so I need to take full advantage of all the summertime outfits while I can :)

In addition to pink, here are my summer’s favorite hues for blazers. Would you wear any of these and if so, which is your favorite?

Zara yellow blazer, J. Crew green blazer,

Topshop coral ponte boyfriend blazer, ASOS purple peplum blazer $58

Thanks for stopping by the blog loves! TGIF and have a wonderful weekend! xo
