It is time to bring out all the florals because spring is just around the corner! I adore this playsuit from Ark, the long sleeves are especially perfect during this transitional season and not to mention the sugar plum color is simply gorgeous! I paired it with my new custom made (makes me feel fancy) wide brim fedora hat by Katarina Hats. This hat... where do I even begin? I knew I wanted a light gray hat but I didn't care for a typical black ribbon band, so I asked for dark gray. Katarina suggested a light beige band instead and I absolutely love how it turned out! It is beautifully constructed and of the greatest quality. I couldn't ask for a better hat! I kept the rest of the accessories neutral with a taupe lambskin clutch with lovely little silver stars by Lauren Merkin and these suede flats by Sole Society that have adorable bows on the back! By the way, in case you are wondering, I am holding my hat in most of these shots because it was super windy and it kept wanting to fly away!

I sure love to sport some bold red lips but I don't typically wear a red piece of garment. These pants, however, changed my mind. They are perfectly high waisted, comfortably silky, and totally versatile. If these pants were black, my outfit would be boring; but because they are red, my outfit becomes much more exciting. I paired them with a mixed stripes top, a peplum blazer, and classic black pumps. I dressed up the look a bit with this stunning necklace from Lulu Frost's new Neon Baroque collection and a gorgeous two tone leather clutch by Lauren Merkin. This look definitely drew some attention in this casual beach town of Santa Cruz, but hey who cares?

I am not sure why but I hardly ever wear blue. For some reason, I am just not drawn to it which is why I am quite surprised at myself for picking out this navy fedora hat as well as these blue floral pants. Oh how I love a good hat, one that holds up to its shape and one of good quality that will last a long time. This grande navy fedora by Mu Du London is the perfect example. I suppose I chose navy because you rarely see a navy/blue hat, it is often black or brown or something less unique. As for the rest of my outfit, I am wearing a white knit top from H&M last year that has the most awesome statement fluttered sleeves (I have been seeing statement sleeves popping up everywhere lately), lovely floral pants, lavender satchel, and my white patent loafers with gold chain accent. Once in a blue moon, I should wear blue.

Valentine's Day might be over, but there is another reason to wear red. February is National Heart Month and I have teamed up with Tieks and American Heart Association to spread awareness by wearing a pair of Tieks ballet flats in cardinal red. Tieks ballet flats are on the pricier end but they are totally worth it in my opinion. They are made of the finest Italian leather and designed to fold and fit in a purse (super convenient for days when I am wearing heels and need a pair of flats handy to change into). In today's look, I paired my cardinal red Tieks with an ivory sweater, high waisted snake print pants, and a cream satchel which also has subtle reptile accent. I pulled the whole look together with my bold red lips and a vintage red leather belt.

A few months ago, I had the pleasure to team up with Melie Bianco as one of three bloggers to collaborate on their Spring/Summer Lookbook. This is one of the biggest commissioned projects I have ever been part of and I am very excited to share with you all! I styled and photographed 21 handbags from their Spring/Summer collection while the Melie Bianco team edited the photos, designed the layout and put the entire lookbook together. I am showing you a few pages from my 24-full page spread below along with some of my favorite outtakes which I edited myself. You can also view the lookbook in its entirety here. Oh, and if you happen to be in Vegas for WWDMagic, don't be surprised if you see me plastered all over Melie Bianco's booth!

Fashion isn't always about the glamour, some days I just want to be comfortable while looking put together. My fiancé and I travel all over the Bay Area on a weekly basis since we both have families around here. If I have to spend a round trip of 2+ hours in a car, I definitely try to avoid wearing anything fancy and having to worry about it getting wrinkled every five seconds. Sometimes I would bring a change of shoes, but I usually keep it fairly simple, just like my outfit here. Basic striped tee, skinny jeans, easy wrapped coat, and cute bow flats... all in beige and gray. After seeing and wearing an overwhelmingly amount of pink and red for Valentine's Day, this neutral color combo is rather refreshing.

I wish I am sitting here writing about my Valentine's Day look but instead I am writing about how I do not have one prepared! Believe me, I am quite upset about it as Valentine's Day is one of the most anticipated occasions for me each year. I love nothing more than being able to create the girliest outfits and wear the tackiest shade of pink. Since I am only able to take photos on the weekend, the rain which lasted for 5 days straight this past week completely ruined my plans. I had the most perfect outfit dreamed up to post today but chances are you will never see it now. It is very unlikely that I will photograph it at this point. Valentine's Day is over and I am no longer in the mood. Since I am feeling moody, I leave you with a photo of me shot a few weeks ago during my stay in Big Sur. It is far from what I am accustomed to and I wasn't sure if I would post it. Today, however, I find it quite fitting and it goes with my current state of mind.

I am feeling the love in the air so here is another Valentine's Day look for you! My outfit is composed of so many pretty things I don't even know where to begin. I am wearing a vintage sheer pleated dress with gorgeous ruched satin details on the front (which I forgot to photograph) and a cropped faux fur coat with giant collar and thick grosgrain piping details. I tie the two pieces together with my accessories... the most romantic clutch by Nila Anthony full of little lace rosettes, lovely floral tights, and of course my Loly in the Sky heart flats!
