let’s fall into…fall!

Yes, I said transition in the fall. Which is somewhat a joke right now in the desert, because it is literally still 90 degrees outside. I know it’s crazy!! Well in my head, I’m currently strolling down 5th avenue in brisk fall weather.

That’s why I am just styling myself for cooler weather, maybe mother nature will catch the hint. I recently shot with a new photographer, Miranda of Miranda Rose photography in Palm Springs and absolutely love the shots!!

My look was a little biker chic. I was inspired to pull out my black leather jacket from H&M. It is the perfect essential for fall & instead of a heavy jacket I still look stylish in it. I also had to break in my new black booties from Nordstrom Rack. They are the perfect low booties and so comfortable.

I can’t believe it’s already going to be November. This year is flying by and I’m still trying to catch from my birthday weekend. Haha (kidding… but not kidding)

Midweek Mediation.

DSC_0176Wednesdays are normally the best, because we’re so close to the weekend. working retail never really allows me to have true weekends. I live vicariously through all of you!

For me, it’s typically my day to regroup. I tend to get in the weekend mood and that is how I often miss my weekly goals.

Plus, I might be a chronic procrastinator. don’t judge y’all.

This week I took a different method to my Wednesday and took time to practice some yoga and mediation. Yes, I’m a yogi on the side… like wayyyy on the side, I’ve been in months.

And since I haven’t been in awhile, so my form is not the best, but it always makes my body feel amazing afterwards.

i will definitely be getting more on track with my posts & i have some awesome life updates.

and here’s a shameless plug of my snapchat: @trappednfashion

Holiday Realness

After a long day yesterday, I was able to make it to my moms holiday party. Her office had their annual holiday party at Tonga Hut in Palm Springs. I styled this last minute look, but it came together nicely. I wanted to look ready for the holidays, but not corny! DSC_0014    My focal piece of the look was this black and gold skirt. I loved the fit and flare effect it gives and I recently purchased these great moto boots from Express (with an extra 30% off). Did I still give off a great stylish holiday look?

This old navy set was a birthday gift from my parents! (oh yes…Happy Birthday to me!) Even though, I didn’t get a chance to hit the gym after my class. I made this my look for the day. I threw on a pair of gladiator sandals and made it a chic matching set. IMG_1862

or i looked like a “fake busy” housewive, right? Either way, it was so cute and comfortable. I think I will start making workout clothes my everyday looks….Just kidding. IMG_1870 IMG_1871

It was a beautiful day at the Hard Rock Palm Springs and since we are still experiencing summer weather, we took clear advantage! Maxi skirts were our focus for the day! IMG_2965

Niki wore a beautiful printed top with her solid black maxi skirt. While I switched it up and wore a solid tee with my michael kors printed maxi! IMG_2968 IMG_2957

We took over the Hard Rock’s pool area and turned it into our photo shoot set! I am so in love with this spray painted wall that she shot next to! IMG_2989 IMG_2979

..but first we had to take a few selfies while we waited for drinks in the private cabanas! (or just snuck in there…lol)IMG_3043 IMG_3083

Sunkissed!

I’ve found myself having to find more casual looks since i’m back in school! i’m so used to having the dress up, so it’s a nice transition to dress “normal”.

I had astronomy on monday nights and it is a 3 hour lecture. so i always want to come very comfortable to that class. Three hours of astronomy is very very entertaining so i definitely would like to look cute to feel better. lol.

My new favorite site for dresses online: Review Australia!

reviewlogo

summertime is the dress season! during the summer months you always need a new dress or two. this is the time of weddings, graduations, baby showers, and vacations. well, i found the perfect website to find dresses for every occasion: Review-Australia! Review is an australian based site that specializes in fun, feminine, and flirty dresses. They have beautiful dresses that are classic, yet still are very fashion forward. they remind me of charlotte york from sex and the city!

what really makes me love Review is that they have such a variety of dresses. there is no occasion that they do not cater to. the quality of Review’s dresses plus the price point makes this one of my favorite online shops. you can find dresses that are appropriate for work then style it up for a girls night out. every girl loves a dress that you can wear multiple ways! for all the brides, there are also bridesmaid dresses and styles that can be worn to more formal events. who doesn’t want to shop at a boutique that is a one stop shop?
