#OOTD: Vegas casual




Earlier this month, I headed to Las Vegas and I have to say the weather was perfect! It was hot yes but not unbearably so.  Which is why I’m so glad I got this dress for my trip! It’s from Naked Wardrobe – the You’ll Look Back Dress for $34. I can’t find the black version anymore on their website but the mauve one is on sale right now for $25.

I walked so much that day I’m glad I did.  Such a great day or night dress – I’m in love!

Fashionnova Puppy Love Dress in Taupe // Levity Mules (similar here) // Ray Bans

I spent my Sunday afternoon enjoying brunch with my sister and our close friend – we had the best meal at True Food Kitchen in Santa Monica. The weather was so warm in LA this weekend – I’m definitely ready for cooler temperatures though.

For my girls brunch, I pulled out my Fashionnova Puppy Love dress. I had been waiting to buy this dress for weeks as it was sold out for a bit. When I finally got my hands on it, I purchased it in the taupe as well as in the pink hue. The off-the-shoulder dress is a steal for $29.99!

I decided to add my trusty black mules to keep it casual and a pop of color with my orange Ray Bans. The choker is just faux suede ribbon tied around my neck.

I headed to work right after but it was such a great way to start to my Sunday!


3 Selena Gomez Looks You Should Try This Weekend

Selena Gomez is very versatile with her style – one day she’s rocking a sleek top with skinny jeans and heels and then next she’s sporting a bodysuit with ripped denim. Check out three different Selena Gomez looks that can you try this weekend!

1.All Black

Selena chose to rock an all black ensemble, opting for skinny jeans, a loose sleeveless blouse and strappy heels.  The key to this look is the fit of each piece. She chose skintight bottoms, pairing it with a loose blouse with a long hemline. The two balance each other out perfectly. The heels add that understated sex appeal and really pulls the whole look together. This is a really simple look – but if you’re in a rush and you need to look chic but not like you tried to hard – then this is your look.

2. Lace up X Denim

Once again, Selena shows us how versatile she is. The beauty wore a black lace up bodysuit with a denim shirt, oversized blazer and thigh high boots. She made the revealing bodysuit and mini skirt daytime chic by adding a loose fitting jacket and boots that cover practically her entire legs.  The result is a ladylike but sexy take on lace ups – once again proving that she’s a trendsetter.

3. Neutral Trench coat X Flared Jeans

This is another great weekend look and perfect for spring. Selena paired flared denim with a pale blue crop top and a suede trench coat. The coat balances the midriff-baring top; she rolled the sleeves which makes it more daytime wearable. The flared bottoms and sunglasses are great ways to incorporate vintage inspired touches to any look.  She pulled her brunette locks back into a center parted ponytail and kept her makeup minimal – so that the look is fresh, simple and classic.

Gisele casual outfit for the airport is a perfect quick and easy ootd–and it looks good on everyone!  Her look is just a couple of basics put together, giving an effortless cool look.  Just wear your fave jeans with a black belt, add a white top with a leather jacket and voila!  Don’t forget sunglasses–key to pulling off the look!

Khloe Kardashian’s outfit is definitely a sexier look but can also be wore for many different occasions.  Besides a night out, date, or a weekend look, Khloe’s outfit could work for a party as well.  I love Henley tops–they are so versatile depending on the fit and how many buttons you leave open.  Her Henley top is more on the fitted side and she has several buttons open, giving it a sexy but still classy spin on the look.  The ripped jeans make the outfit look less structured and also adds an edge.  To finish off the look, I would recommend emulating the dark lips-it definitely takes the look to the next level!  The hoops are a simple addition that makes it a little more urban and less preppy.

Supermodel Lily Aldridge’s casual outfit is one of my favorites!  Next time you’re in a rush, grab a pair of black skinny jeans, tuck in a white tank and add some funky shoes.  She makes the look sexy by her peeking lingerie style bra underneath her tank.  She shows just  a peek of the bra but it’s enough to give some subtle sexiness.  The dangling earrings, white bag, and blazer in her hand make this a definite date night look!
