Time To Get Funky For Fashion For Festival Season

“It’s not love for music, it’s a passion, and it goes beyond liking, and beyond a hobby, it’s about a way of living…music is essential for my life.” ~ Armin Van Buuren

That time of year is here,, music festival season. Two of my favorite things about festival season is the music and fashion. Today, I am going to share some of the awesome possibilities in regards to the different fashion to rock. Of course, they will fit right in with the amazing music that you will be rocking out to.

Festival fashion is all about fun, fringe and fabulousity ! The great thing about festival fashion is that it allows you to put your own twist on it that brings your individuality. Music festivals are all about having fun and being yourself while listening to amazing music.

I am in love with the fashion for festivals and excited to rock all of these looks this season. Hope these looks inspire you to bust out your festival fashion. Here’s to another great festival season full of music and fashion !

P.S. What is your dream music festival to attend ? I have two: Stagecoach and Coachella.

Yes Pleases for Fall

“Don’t Be Into Trends. Don’t Make Fashion Own You, But You Decide What You Are.” ~ Gianni Versace

I took a breather these last few weeks from writing because it was just one of those times in life when I needed one. I have realized that it is okay to take a break and definitely needed. I am back and this week’s Yes Pleases are here ! This week’s Yes Pleases are all about Fall trends that I am loving. Fall trends are one of my favorite things.

Here’s to Fall being just around the corner and to all the fun trends to come ! Yes Pleases, here we go !

Yes Please #1: Booties with Some Flare

I am a lover of booties for sure. What I am really loving about booties this Fall is that added flare. They are just about having fun with your Fall outfit, which I am all for. The added detail of fringe, bright colors, metallics, which all give a pair of booties an extra pop. A continued Yes Please to that extra pop to those booties 😉 !

Yes Please #2: Moody Florals

I am all about florals throughout the fashion seasons. I am loving the twists on florals that Fall trends bring to them. The twist Fall is bringing to the floral trend is deep, dark colors or moody florals as they are calling it. It gives the traditional florals a unique flare and twist, which is fantastic, fabulous and a big Fall Yes Please !

Yes Please #3: Pale Pink

Pale pink is becoming my new favorite color. I am loving that it is a big trend for Fall and that I just so happen to have a bunch of it in my closet already. It is a color that goes with everything and perfect for any occasion So an absolute Yes Please to all things pale pink for Fall and beyond.

Yes Please #4: Animal Print

Yes, animal print is back ! Animal print is always so fun to include in my ensembles when I can. I love that it is back everywhere now, but in the most tasteful ways. I love everything from subtle accessories to a chic all over pants and everything in between. There is just something about animal print that brings out my inner girl boss and makes me say Yes Please !

Yes Please #5: Nail Art

Nail art has always been one of my favorite things ever since I got my first mani as well as one of my first gifts with nail goodies. It is another extension of my creativity. I am really loving the Fall nail art trends from black accents (seen below) to reverse french mani to bright colors to 3D design. They all have my big Yes Please !

*For more nail inspiration art, be sure to Harper’s Bazaar !

These definitely are not all my favorite trends, but are the ones that stand out. Here are a few of my honorable mentions: 80s, 90s, and Sheer Layering !

Thank you again for coming along for this week’s Yes Please journey ! Stay tuned for next week !

Fireworks, Fashion and Music: All Things 4th of July

“Land That I Love, Stand Beside Her, And Guide Her, Through The Night With The Light From Above.” ~God Bless America

4th of July is all about celebrating our freedoms with family and friends. This is one of my favorite holidays. The reason for that is it is a day that makes me really go all out to celebrate the freedoms I am so grateful for and to celebrate with those I love makes it even more special.

So in honor of 4th of July, here are some of my all time essentials. In terms of skincare I always like give myself a hydrating, relaxing facial due to the fact that I will be out in the sun. It helps keep my skin hydrating and stress free. Before hand make sure your skin is nice and clean (I use Garnier’s Miscellar Water). This go around I used a new mask by Avatara Chill Out Face Mask from Target. It dripped a little bit when I first put it on, but overall I will be using it again and to make it extra relaxing, you can put it in the fridge (defintely works). Next comes moisture and SPF application for that much needed hydration and sun protection. Lately I have been using Yes To Grapefruit Even Skin Moisturizer, ELF Cosmetics Illuminating Eye Cream and Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch SPF 55 Sunscreen. Also for all over sun protection, I like to use Honest Company’s Sunscreen Spray (make sure to shake before application).

Let me tell you, I love them all so far and they don’t seem to be upsetting my sensitive skin, which is always a good thing. I am extra dilligent with this routine come 4th of July celebrations since it’s all about the sunshine. Also, water is the final key for hydrating on a sunshine filled day like July 4th. I usually am drinking from my Bando water bottle or SmartWater‘s sparkling water if I am craving some carbonation.

Now on to one of my favorite parts: attire and beauty. I have a tradition every 4th of July to pick up a fun new outfit and this year was no different. I went with camo and khaki from Target, which I am excited to rock on the day (stay tuned). I rock other favorite Patriotic ensembles leading up to Independence Day, here are a few options I have:

For makeup I usually add a pop of a red lip, sparkle and if feeling daring, I pop on some blue eyeshadow like this one MAC Cosmetics has to offer. My nails have always been such a fun way to try out new holiday designs. It is is either navy with sparkle, Chicago Cubs theme or like this year it is a fun twist with a set from imPress. This is another reason I love the 4th as well, it brings out my creative side.

 

Another must is busting out the decorations. I am loving these ones I got from Michael’s and Party City last year.

If y’all are feeling crafty this year, check out these fun DIY decorations on Pinterest!

You can’t have all this fablousness without some fun activities to celebrate. There are so many fun options to celebrate from Disneyland, water sports, BBQ backyard games, the beach and of course checking out fireworks. This year I will be all about the beach by laying out with my cute sunnies and sun hat while eating great food. Some awesome options are corn on the cob to hot dogs to delicious cocktails, so be sure to check out Pinterest for some of these awesome recipes and others ! If you are in the mood for eating out, check out the local cities’ website for help navigating the great restaurants they have to offer. I will definitely be ending the celebration with an awesome fireworks show or two 🙂 I love them and they make me smile!

Everything is in order except for one thing, the soundtrack for this year’s Independence Day extravaganza. There are so many to choose from, how do I choose ? I am picking the ones that get me smiling and dancing all around. Lets kick it off with some classics first, God Bless America and The National Anthem followed by Zac Brown Band’s ‘Chicken Fried’ and ‘Castaway’. I will definitely have to bust out ‘Can’t Stop The Feeling’ by JT as well as ‘Happy’ by Pharell. Last but not least ‘Uptown Funk’ by Bruno Mars because everyone likes some funk music to get the party started.

I saved the best for last, thanking all those that have given myself and everyone the freedom to be who we want to be, thank you from the bottom of my heart! Wishing y’all a safe and Happy 4th of July !

This World is a Jungle of Fashion

What do you all look for in a fashion staple to last you through the different seasons ? Each new season, I always try to find fun, key pieces that can go with anything. As I was trying to pick out what new pieces for Spring, I realized I wanted the key pieces I got to last me though Summer. For being a Cali girl my Spring and Summer fashion pieces pretty much go hand and hand. So when I got gifted this amazing, beautiful monogrammed clutch from Gigi New York‘s Spring line in the mail, I knew I found my key clutch/accessory for Spring and Summer.

The Azure All in One Bag is not only gorgeous, stunning color ( my new favorite), but it also is high quality, fits a lot and is versatile for any event you may have coming up from a baseball game to a charity event to a fun brunch day with friends. Versatility is always so important for me when it comes to a purse because I need it to transition not only from work to fun, but from sporting events to fashion shows as well. When I don’t have to always change my purse, I am sold. I am a girl who loves sports and fashion so when a purse fits those to sides of me, I fall head over heels. The Azure All in One Bag by Gigi New York fits all of those things I just mentioned, which is probably why I have been seen with it a lot already.

What I think you all will love to about it is that you can pair it with a casual on the go look to the ball park or for a night out on the town. When a clutch speaks to so many different facets, it is a trend that will last throughout multiple seasons, yay to the Azure Bag 🙂

Oh did I mention I am a sucker for anything monogrammed, thanks again for that added touch Gigi New York !

I have simply fallen in love with this clutch and will be rocking it for a very long time. It will be one that is on trend with its color, texture, monogram detail and tassels for years to come, it is classic ! I know you will all fall in love with it too and all the many colors it comes in. Don’t forget to go pick up an Azure All in One Bag for yourself in all the colors they have to offer, you won’t regret it 🙂

A Getaway to Ventura with my Dad : A Restart to a Long Family Tradition

 

IMG_5063

Recently I took a vacation to Ventura with my awesome dad to recharge our batteries with a relaxing few days. We drove up the coast, rocked out to music and ate and dranks some great snacks (Boom Chicka Pop and Tejava Iced Tea). Our first stop was up to Ojai (not to far north of Ventura) for a delicious lunch and conversation. Of course I had to stop my dad to take some pictures, thanks again! We then enjoyed the surroundings of beautiful Ojai by exploring on foot.

It was an amazing, peaceful start to our bonding and relaxing trip. Now it was time to check into our beautiful hotel, Crowne Plaza Ventura Beach . It is officially one of my favorite hotels. Here are the reasons why: right near the beach, great views, amazing room, relaxing pool that looks at the ocean and a great staff.

We were settled in relaxing, snacking, coloring and catching up on sports (something my dad and I will always love sharing together).

Before dinner it was time for a relaxing moment by the pool and bust out my swimwear from Target to go along with my coverup by Helmut Lang compliments of Attire LA (they were kind enought to lend me pieces for my amazing trip). A must have was my 2 Penny Blue bag along with the current Glamour magazine and of course my dad brought baseball magazines to prepare for the upcoming baseball season. It was so fantastic to relax in the sun and dip my toes in the water while looking at the ocean.

It was now happy hour and dinner time at the fabulous Embassy Suites in Oxnard and Lure Fish House in downtown Ventura. Now when I tell you this is a must, it truly is a must. Amazing meal for us both, delicious. A walk after dinner was the perfect end to a perfect first day of vacation.

After breakfast in downtown Ventura, it was activity time so we decided on the Outlets in Camarillo because they have an awesome movie theatre. Of course we stopped in a few shops and found some fun stuff. The movie was starting, which was Logan ( Hugh Jackman’s last one) and let me tell you it was simply fantastic and riveting. My dad and I both loved it.

Movies were great and it was happy hour time now. My dad and mom have explored some great wineries so we stopped at one of them, 4 Brix Winery, which is officially always on my list when I am in the area. Wine was spectacular, cheese plate was savory & sweet , convo was fun and loved their amazing event space with the beautiful wine barrels. You will want to put this winery on your list.

What came next on this Ventura adventure? Trying a new spot that my friend suggested, Cork (only had been open four months and know it will be there for a long time). My dad and I loved everything about it from the fantastic wine to the service and atmosphere. The food also looked and smelled amazing and can’t wait to try it next time 🙂

It was going from a beautiful day to a majestic night. With a day filled of beauty and fun, another favorite of mine, a nap, was for sure needed. Dinner duds were now on and we were ready for an amazing steak dinner at Cafe Zack. Also, if you are a non-meat eater, they offer so many other amazing dishes for you to enjoy 🙂 We ended dinner with a decadent chocolate dessert, outstanding ! It was another end to an amazing day.

The third and final day to a great vacation was spent having a great breakfast at the hotel and enjoying the beautiful view one last time. Ventura was an amazing vacation with my dad and the getaway we needed, definitely will be back to explore even more again soon.

What are some of your favorite vacation spots ? Can’t wait to hear and add to my must list and be sure to tag me on Instagram (@livelaughstyle) when you do !

I got to experience this all in one Saturday a few months ago at the OCRFA Shopping Saturday the Santa Monica Airplane hanger. This was truly a beautiful event supporting the OCRFA, which continues to raise awareness for ovarian cancer. To have the chance to be a part of this event was an honor and it felt like a community truly supporting one another from the QVC team broadcasting from the hanger to all the brands donating their sales to OCRFA to riding around with Chrysler to getting my hair done by Conair & Scunci to enjoying cotton candy and lipgloss from Mary Kay, this event was truly well planned and fantastic.

A bonus to this event was being able to shop some of my favorite brands like Wildfox Couture, Show Me Your Mumu, Sole Society and many more while rocking one of my favorite accessories a breathtakingly beautiful floral crown compliments of Bfloral.

Not only were all of these things fantastic, but simply knowing all of us attendees were doing that day was for a great cause was truly a magical feeling. This day and event started to change my perspective on life that I am meant to help other in everything that I do. So I am working on how I can do that each day and week.

What do you all do to get involved and help others? Can’t wait to hear and possibly work on it together!

Thank You to Domain Integrated & OCRFA !
