Adding a Pop of Color with Jewelry

I love that jewelry can really transform any outfit – like the Moon Dance Necklace that I wore with this simple LBD and paired with a blush (neutral) blazer. This delicate, but bold necklace from Bracha adds just the pop of color that I wanted for this spring work outfit.

Not only are Bracha’s designs beautiful and unique, I fully support the mission behind this jewelry line founded by 2 sisters who believed that they could change the world. Their hope is that when you purchase Bracha, conversations will be sparked, raising awareness and giving hope and healing to victims of human trafficking.

Hotel Review: A Staycation at The Redondo Beach Hotel

A few weekends ago, I had the wonderful opportunity to join my friend, Lauren of Bohemian by the Bay, for a fun weekend staycation at The Redondo Beach Hotel. It’s a modern hotel with a beachy vibe, right in the heart of the South Bay. Like Lauren, since moving here a year ago from West LA, I haven’t been able to explore too much, so this little staycation provided that perfect opportunity.

ThredUP Buying Experience Review – Tory Burch Pussy Bow Blouse

Tory Burch Checked Pussy Bow Blouse

I first heard about ThredUP while scrolling through my Instagram feed, so I was very excited when the company reached out to me to try them out. While I love bargain shopping, I don’t ever have the patience to sift through racks and racks of clothes. ThredUP, is an online consignment store, so it makes it really easy to shop and sell secondhand clothes right from home. I was able to do a search for specific items that I was looking for and filter by size, brand, color and price.

Mom Jeans – Madewell The Anywhere Jean

I’m all about comfort whenever possible and these “mom” jeans fit the bill perfectly.  I’m   now about 4 weeks postpartum and 15ish pounds away from my pre-baby weight and these jeans are perfect for that in between size.  With my first pregnancy, I never wanted to spend too much money on clothes that were in between my sizes, but it actually took me almost 2 years to finally get back to my pre-pregnancy weight (granted, I wasn’t exercising regularly ;)). This time around, I purchased a few more “investment” postpartum pieces, because I know that I’ll likely wear it for longer than I think, plus I can pass it on to another mama friend (or keep it for myself for baby #3)!

Zara Blush Blazer

I love that I am seeing lots of blush pink again everywhere this spring.  Now don’t be scared off by the color pink, the blush that I’m referring to is more of a light nude color that almost acts as a neutral instead of a bright pink.  And if you’ve seen my other posts, you know that I’m all about neutrals!  It’s the perfect spring color that matches almost everything in your closet, so you should definitely expect to see more of it in mine this season.
