Top: Peibi Top at Club Monaco (also available on Shopbop–Free 2 day shipping!!) –This Topshop top is a budget-friendly version with a cute bow! I also love this similar off the shoulder blue ruffle version, and this Amanda Uprichard version that also comes in blue! This J.Crew version is super cute too and only $45! // Jeans: J.Brand Maria (on sale!)–I also have these white high-waisted Levi’s that I really like, too, if you’re looking for a less expensive pair! // Heels: Old, but similar here (20% off and only $99!) here and here (only $79!)! // Bag: Cult Gaia “Gaia’s Ark” Bag (Shopbop just started carrying it in black!) // Sunnies: c/o KREWE via Tuckernuck (love this $25 tortoise pair, too!) // Lipstick: c/o Burberry Lip Velvet in “Oxblood”
Okay, so, I have a problem.
I CANNOT STOP SINGING BEAUTY AND THE BEAST.
Like, all the songs, to be specific.
Have you seen it yet? OMG. I just, cannot handle myself I loved it so much.
My friend Kai and I saw it on Wednesday night and we’re both HUGE musical dorks and I think if anyone would have looked at us during the movie and seen us smiling SO big the entire time it would’ve been really embarrassing for everyone involved. (Luckily there were only like 4 other people in the theatre so I don’t think anyone saw us giggling like little girls.)
I’ve been listening to the soundtrack every since and singing along with it too loud for my own good. I’m sure my neighbors don’t appreciate it. (Sue and Frank, if you’re reading this, please accept my apologies.)
But really, if you haven’t seen it–it seriously blew my expectations out of the water. Please go see it this weekend!
Anyway–this Saturday is our Blogging For Keeps Photography Workshop! We have 17 wonderful ladies joining us in my living room to learn more about blog photography and we could NOT be more excited! This is our first workshop we’ve ever held, so we’re both admittedly a little nervous but we’re really looking forward to it! We’re not sure if/when we’d do another one, but you’d be interested in potentially attending in the future, make sure to jump on our email list right over here.
On Sunday we’re headed up to Neal’s family’s lake house for the day, so it will be really fun to have a low-key day and hang out with family!
Switching gears–we’re headed back to LA for today’s post 🙂 (GAH I could reallyyy use some of that beautiful sunshine right about now. I am OVER these April showers and it’s not even April yet!)
I absolutely love this girly polka-dotted ruffle top. The dots are actually created with thread so it adds a really cool texture to the shirt, too! It’s lightweight too so it’s the perfect top to wear now and through the summer. (Plus, you know my obsession with Club Monaco. If I could buy the whole store, I would. Sigh. Everything they make is so feminine, classic, and perfect!)
Also, if you’re in the market for some white jeans, I have two great pairs for you: The J.Brand Maria white skinnies ($132) and the Levi’s high-waisted white skinnies ($89)–both are super comfortable and cute! Also, tip for keeping your white jeans clean: Spray them with Scotchgard! YES seriously, it works! Stains and dirt wipe right off! Make sure you re-apply it each time you wash them though.
If you don’t have a pair of lace-up chunky heels, I think they’re the perfect spring/summer shoes! The pair I’m wearing here (old, but these are really similar) are the only heels I brought to LA and I wore them every night! They go with everything and I like that the lace-up factor adds so much personality to your outfit! Look for a neutral shade so you can wear them with any color!
Have a happy weekend!
