Carmel Weekend

Gap Shirt, Nordstrom Pants, DVF Wedges, Illesteva Sunglasses, Celine Bag, NARS Lipgloss in “Wonder”

My husband and I spent this past weekend in Monterey and Carmel- initially for a trip with his work- and then extended for a quick little getaway. Carmel is one of my favorite places. It’s absolutely beautiful and definitely a place to go and relax. The weather was warm, but with a nice cool breeze- so these light and airy wide leg pants were perfect. They’re a steal for only $88 and are so flattering on. I highly recommend picking up a pair if you’re in need.

Orange Is The New Black

Piol Dress c/o, Clare Vivier Clutch, DVF Wedges, Oliver Peoples Sunglasses c/o, Bobbi Brown Lipgloss in “Petal”

Happy Friday!

A few weeks ago I was introduced to Piol- a site where you design and make a dress perfect for you. I was so intrigued by the process I knew I had to try it out. The first step is finding your color aura (this based on your skin, eye and hair color), next you pick out your favorite silhouette depending on your body shape and what will flatter you the most, then comes fabric choice and finally the details (neckline, skirt and sleeves) along with your measurements. I’ve always based my color choices on my mood or what I’m drawn to at that moment and have never really put that much thought into what would compliment my complexion the most. I love how my bright orange choice really shows off my green eyes and makes me look extra tan ;) (always a plus!)

I don’t know about you all, but I can’t even count how many times I’ve been shopping and thought “I wish this dress came in a different silhouette”. It’s just not reality to think that every shape looks good on every body. For me, I always want to show off the smallest part of my body (my waist) and find something that’s flirty and feminine. I loved being able to add short sleeves, a scoop next and flared skirt- all elements I look for in the perfect dress. I couldn’t be happier with the results! I was wearing it downtown the other day and had a handful of people stop and asked me where it was from. I had to give myself a little pat on the back ;)
