HEAT WAVE

Hiiiiiiiiiiiii guys! :D I hope you've been having a good week! These photos are a little late because I've been swamped at work (oh hai working until 10pm on a Friday night!) but a couple weeks ago it got up to the high 80's in California!

I first spied this amazing Angel Ribbons fringed beauty during the Simply Be Spring Preview a couple months ago and I knew I had to have it! It's so airy and boho, and I couldn't imagine a better time to break it out than during our first post-winter heat wave!

SHADES OF BLUE

Happy Spring! :D I know we Californians haven't had to deal with the polarvortexsnowpocalypse that the rest of the country has had to endure, but I'm so excited for spring! Daylight savings means that it's still light out when I get out of work (YESSS) and the occasional weekend heat wave allows for poolside hangouts and outdoor grilling!

MELISSA MASSE SPRING PREVIEW EVENT

A couple weekends ago, I was lucky enough to head to LA for Melissa Masse's Spring Preview. As a big fan of her bold and playful prints, I was excited to see what she had in store for us. Needless to say, I wasn't disappointed!

So many cheery prints and patterns!

WITH A KISS

Curvy Girl Chic Plus Size Fashion Blog SWAK Designs Lulu Skirt and Pretty Cami

I've departed from my usual above-the-knee skirts recently in favor of midi lengths. There is something so classic and refined about a slightly longer length, and nothing is as classic as a pleated skirt! In black, it's a piece you know you'll wear for years. You can shop for this skirt and more of SWAK's plus size clothes here!

ON WEEKENDS

Happy Monday! (Actually, WHAT IS SO HAPPY ABOUT THIS MONDAY, IT'S A MONDAY FOR CRYING OUT LOUD.)

This weekend wasn't nearly long enough, but it was pretty perfect. Homemade breakfasts, days at the Korean spa, and evenings shopping in deserted outdoor malls because rain is the SoCal equivalent of a blizzard--all punctuated with good food, great company, and some long overdue reading. Suffice it to say, I'm not ready for Monday. At all.
