I’ve always love the sixties shift dresses look, but mainly on other people. They are so chic, stylish and timeless, but most importantly it seems so effortless to just throw on a narrow shape dress and still look stylish.

The columnar silhouette was characterized to flatter most body types…but I find most shift dresses are narrow as hell and never really fit me correctly. Too loose on top and too tight around my hips. The design of shift dresses are not supposed to hug or “cinch” the body but I find the hemline always cinches the beejesus out of my thighs. I thought maybe I’m just having a Chip Wilson (lululemon) moment and am buying workout clothes shift dresses 2 sizes too small, until I got this OASAP dress in the mail. It’s perfectly shifted and fits like a glove without being too tight or too boxy. I also love the added white collar and faux cuffs for a nice contrast to the bright cobalt blue.

Now I know the shift dress that best flatters my body type is one with a slight triangle shape as it flares out at the hemline.


Here are a few of my favorite shift dresses, works well for curvy shapes and on sale.

One of the best things about living in California is of course the weather. During the colder months when everyone is layered in layers, we can still get away with just a sweater. It’s as if we never really have to bundle up all the way. Which is good because I love being able to wear a light jacket or sweater to keep me warm and cozy but still wear flirty skirts and open toe heels when I want to. :)

Go With The Flow

Whenever I wear maxi skirts I feel so effortlessly feminine. I love the ethereal vibe of these long skirts, especially the ones that are lightweight and has an easy, breezy flow. However, what I love most are the endless styling options! Maxi skirts can be paired with crop tops (my favorite of course), chambrays, knits, blouses, tees, leather/denim jackets or blazers, you name it! Best of all, sandals, boots and flats all looks great with maxis. What can I say, it’s just a universal item that goes well with everything. :)

Below are a few of my past maxi looks. It’s obviously I love maxis. Which one is your favorite?



Casual Comfort





When it comes to accessories, I’m more of a silver or gold kinda gal but the contrasting colors of mint, coral and purple of this Chiara statement necklace from 2Hello Beautiful definitely caught my eye and I love how it adds just the perfect touch to my summer staples.

Speaking of summer staples, I’m loving the 2013 Summer collection from Spiegel, which are mostly on sale right now! I have my eyes this Ponte Taylor jumpsuit for day, cute floral one piece swimsuit for the beach, and this bright blue maxi skirt for everyday.

The best thing about coming back from a week stay in a tropical place is that I brought back the sunshine. Or at least that’s what I like to tell myself because it’s been unbelievably warm in this little part of town (80 degrees +). With the weather heating up, my favorite go to pieces are these DIY cut off shorts that I made from old vintage levis, a comfy tank, crop moto that’s just too perfect for day and night and of course a hat for those uncooperative hair days! Hope you’re having a good hump day! xo

The Basics


I’m a big fan of prints and colors but sometimes it’s nice to go back to basics. My basics go-to items usually consist of jeans, tank, blazer, a hat for those low maintenance days and flats to run around in. Also, I always like to bring along a pair of heels just in case we end up going somewhere in the evening. Trust me, this’ll prevent you from buying unnecessary new shoes every time.  :)
