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 of the Week

“Live your life as a series of obsessions.”

One of my favorite times of the week is here, my Yes Pleases. This week was another fun one to put together. Here we go to this week’s Yes Pleases !

Yes Please #1: Football Season

Football Season is back and already we are into week three. I am so excited for football to be back. I love the sport, the energy it brings, the food and of course supporting my Chicago Bears. Here’s to hoping for an awesome football season for DA Bears, always a Yes Please !

Yes Please #2: Slip On Mules

So I have been a fan of mules for awhile now and so excited to see the evolution of them. There are heels, faux fur, florals, metallics, nudes, neutrals and so many other amazing details and options. As mules continue to transform so do my outifits. I continue to say a big Yes Please to mules !

Yes Please #3: Eric & Jessie is Back on E!

Yay, Eric&Jessie is back on E! after being away for 3 years. It premiered a couple of weeks ago and episode 3 just aired. This show is happy, goofy, full of laughs and serious relationship goals. The show is a must watch and a big Yes Please !

Yes Please #4: Woven Pear Socks

Woven Pear has quickly become a part of my sock drawer ever since I picked up my first two pairs at a local boutique. They are cute, comfy and full of fabulous details (one being the cute woven pear) and love all the different choices. I recently was sent these amazing Ice Cream socks and Bison socks to feature, which is officially one of my favorite packages to get. They are another accessory that gives not only comfort, but that fun peekaboo pop to an ensemble. For me, Woven Pear is always a Yes Please !

Yes Please #5: Hask Hair Products

My hair is thick and there is a lot of it. I am always looking for great products that are paraben & sulfate free. I have fallen in love with Hask Hair ever since I first tried their shampoo, conditioner and dry shampoo (my fave). I have been wanting to try all their products for awhile so I was overjoyed when Hask Hair themselves sent me all their amazing products. I was overwhelmed with joy and excitement to try them all. Hask Hair is hair happiness for me and always a Yes Please !

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 !

Popping Champagne at Calabasas Malibu Food & Wine Festival

“Too much of anything is bad, but too much champagne is just right.” ~ Mark Twain

Carousel_600px

These days great company, champagne and a beautiful setting make for an amazing day and event. The Champagne Brunch for the Calabasas Malibu Food & Wine Festival on June 11th had all of these components. It was truly a beautiful event with great food from Toscanova out on the beautiful patio, live music from Tara Macri and great conversations with great company that included chefs from the previous 2 evening of the festival. I wish I could have made the first two nights because everyone was talking about how truly fantastic they were.

I always love it when I can leave an event with a huge smile on my face from enjoyment and I left with a big one from this one. I made lifelong friends from this one and have from all of Barcelona Enterprises past events as well. Barcelona Enterprises, who put the 3 day festival, put on a truly luxurious, classy event. I felt like I had known everyone for year and was welcomed with open arms. I will definitely be going again next year and will be bringing my family and friends. A champagne brunch is a perfect way to end a spectacular 3 day festival.

As Alan Semsar (CEO/Founder of Barcelona Enterprises) said, “The world’s top brands came together to support arts and education that included McLaren Beverly Hills, Capital One, Regent Seven Seas Cruises and Samuel Adams. They are all model corporate citizens who make a global & local impact. Cheers to them.” This shows how Alan and his team not only put on spectacular events on a continuous basis, but continuously put great causes at the forefront as to why they do what they do. They also align themselves with brands that put this as a priority as well, Cheers to you all !

Here is to another amazing year at the Calabasas Malibu Food & Wine Festival ! I highly recommend checking out Barcelona Enterprise’s next event.

Thank you again for allowing me to attend and be a part of an amazing day!

P.S. Anytime sports comes into a conversation, you now I am smiling. This was an added bonus to an already spectacular event. What do you all look for to make an event great?

Redefining Relaxation Through a Staycation at Farmer’s Daughter Hotel

A tradition I have started in the last year was one of having a staycation as often as I can. It was something that started with wanting to be near work one week when I had a lot going on. A light bulb went off, “why don’t I have a staycation every so often?” The tradition of staycations were born right then and there for me.

So the time came again this past February for me to have another staycation and exploring adventure in my amazing city. Where this next staycation was going to be was not hard, Farmer’s Daughter Hotel and the surrounding area that I had been wanting to stay in for awhile. It’s a hotel I passed a bunch of times and an area I have been to before and have just fallen in love with it all. An added bonus too is one of my favorite outdoor shopping spots, The Grove, is a quick walk from the hotel along with Coffee Commissary within 5 minutes or so, which I was so excited to finally try).

The reservation was made and my staycation was here, yay ! Luckily the bad weather subsided long enough for me to have an amazing staycation. I checked in to Farmer’s Daughter Hotel, which has one of the cutest lobbies and my room wasn’t ready, but it was perfect because I had the perfect chance to walk on over to The Grove for a shopping adventure before dinner.

Where to start now at The Grove ? Topshop caught my eye immediately I was overwhelmed with excitement on all the great pieces, but the ones I ended up with was this amazing leather floral pleated skirt and fun, fuzzy socks for Valentine’s Day that I now where all the time. Now that I have added some amazing new pieces to my wardrobe, it is time for a refreshing beverage and a tasty snack. Whenever I am at the Grove my go to is Nordstrom Cafe. I ordered an iced tea (my obsession) with a smoked salmon platter (always my go to) and I was able to enjoy it all outside in the cute court yard surrounding the cafe.

My room was ready and it was a nice surprise because they upgraded me to the main building to makeup for me waiting, which highlighted their amazing customer service even more. Walking into the room, I got a warm, cozy feeling and I knew I was in a space of pure relaxation, which was needed with the amazing king bed and breakfast nook bench all with fantastic accents everywhere. I officially need a king bed in my life because I was spoiled by this one, absolutely loved.

Being able to plop down on the amazing bed with my magazaine and book before dinner at Tart (the restaturant connected directly to the hotel). Dinner was here my outfit was fun and fabulous and my book & notebook were in hand. With the essentials in tow, I walked over and got a gorgeous seat on their deck near the fireplace, simply fantastic (I highly recommend making a reservation like I did to guarantee a gorgeous spot, which is anywhere at this amazing place). I ordered jasmine green tea, brussel sprouts with a fried egg and fried pickles as an appetizer (a suggestion from Bread and Butter PR) and for the main course, one of the best cheeseburger (mmm, delicious).

Let me tell you this meal was stupendous ! I can’t forget the delicious, decadent dessert, which they delivered to my room after I got back up (they seriously spoiled me). I ordered italian sugar donuts with a delicious filling, one of the bests. Eating the dessert at my nook in my room was the perfect end to a perfect day and night.

It was morning and after being well rested and re-energized, I lounged and wrote in my room before heading out. I ended the trip with a stop at Coffee Commissary for breakfast, which is one of my new favorites.

To say I will be back is an understatement, I will be back in ten fold to each spot especially because I have to be sure to ride around on the Farmer’s Daughter Hotel adorable bikes 🙂 .

Fashion for a Cause in the New Year

It is 2016…can’t believe it ! To kick off the new year, my first post of 2016 is about brands that I not only love but brands that support amazing causes. The brands I will be featuring are Threads for Thought(design and produce ethical, sustainable fashion for the environment), Pura Vida Bracelets(Charity Collections and helps create jobs for those in Costa Rica) , who I have partnered up with these amazing bracelets that are featured, Buckfeet Shoes(support local artists), Flex Watches(the one featured is to support Love and Equality organizations) and last, but not least Toms (for every pair purchased another pair is given to those in need).

My love for fashion that supports different causes came about in college when I started researching about eco friendly marketing in business. A light bulb went off and ever since then I do my best to shop for brands that support a cause and also partner with brands for my blog as well whether its in support of female entrepreneurship to the environment. For me supporting causes means supporting others and supporting others is important to keep this world going. The world goes round when we are all each others cheerleaders 🙂

Here are some of my faves and I promise to keep posting about great new brands for causes that I find! What are some of all of your favorite brands that support great causes? Drop a comment on in! Looking forward to hearing from all of you 🙂
