THE Pants

Here I go with these pants again! It has been a while so I was due anyways right? These are my FAVORITE work pants! I always say it but I am so happy I bought these.  I had one outfit in mind when I bought them, only one! Which wasn’t the smartest idea considering how much they costed, but I am so happy I convinced myself to splurge. My newest pairing is with my chambray collard button up from Target! I feel a tad 80/90’s mom in this but I think that is just my new jam: mom jeans, high waist, tons of colors, all of the above.

Anyways I do not know why I didn’t think about my chambray top with these pants before. Maybe I thought the colors would be too much, but really, is denim even a color? When you consider denim pants then they are kind of “colorless” right? Because we all (usually) say anything goes with denim. I definitely do not think a normal long sleeve button up chambray would go, but the sleeveless worked perfectly. If you have any other ideas for these pants let me know because I think I am finally running out of ideas…

Links! Soo, these pants are long gone, and I can’t find anything super similar BUT PLEASE LOOK AT HOW CUTE THESE ONES ARE! They are Topshop from Nordstrom and are most definitely on my wishlist now. Topshop Belted Stripe Roll-Cuff TrousersTop from Who What Wear from Target linked here but it is on clearance and mostly sold out so a new similar one is linked here.

The Blogger Dress

My sister Tabitha and I have come to call this dress “the blogger dress”. It earned its name when the last Nordstrom anniversary sale happened. The dress wasn’t on sale but almost ALL of the bloggers we follow were wearing and talking about this dress by Leith. When I finally went to Nordstrom to try it on I understood why. This is probably the best dress I have ever owned. All the other bloggers kept talking about how great the fit was and how the ruching in the front covers any bloating or lack of abs. They were absolutely right. I feel so comfortable and good in this dress. It is long enough for work but still short enough to dress it up to go out. The crossed V front makes it a little sexy without being inappropriate. The best part is I feel like I can be relaxed in it and not worry about sucking it in all night or pulling it down so my butt doesn’t show like in a typical body-con. I am tall, like around 5’8″, and I can still wear a small in this dress and not worry about it being short. I already have it in black and this peach color, but I still want to get it in the navy… and possibly the green. It is just so versatile! It can seriously be worn for any occasion. Like below I just wore it with cheetah espadrille mules from Target to keep it casual to walk around Fremont Street. If you are looking for a good fitted dress I promise you, go try this on and you’ll probably want to buy it.

Baseball Season is Here!

It’s time for one of my favorite seasons, BASEBALL! There is almost nothing better than sitting in a stadium with a drink in your hand, a hot dog in the other, and rooting for your home team… the Angels of course!

Baseball season is also a great excuse to go on a date, whether it is your hubby, boyfriend/manfriend, or someone you are just getting to know. I mean I’ve gone with friends, family, a first date, and it’s actually where I met my boyfriend. I mean what guy doesn’t love baseball?!

I have seen many different styles showcased at The Big A, from girls in dresses and heels, to shorts, sandals, and crop tops. I personally like to usually go with my vans, converse, or rainbows; or in my case my pink Adidas. These three shoes are great for walking around the stadium, and aren’t too heavy if it is hot outside. Nothing is worse than having hot feet!

What I wear for bottoms are usually jeans or jean shorts, sometimes I roll the ankle if I need to try to get a breeze. I have occasionally worn white shorts but be careful if you do because they can get dirty easily. My tops vary, I used to have a kids’ jersey because it was a give away, but you can find kid or adult jerseys many places; they are just a little pricey if you aren’t a diehard. I usually go with an Angels shirt, which I found at Target and Old Navy. The one from Old Navy is a great material and works for day or night. I also have gone with plain color shirts or tanks and then added a bow or hat of the Angels. I personally love hats, but I almost ALWAYS wear them backwards, there is just something I love about it at a baseball game.

Lastly, do not forget your team jacket or a team blanket if you are going to a night game. Or any jacket and blanket will do but it is more fun to have a team on it!

My rule for baseball dates is the simpler the better; guys aren’t going to games to stare at you, so keep it to team themed clothes or do colored tops that are the same as the baseball team you are going for. You will fit in, be comfy, and hopefully actually enjoy yourself!

Bringing Cacti to the Office

It was only a matter of time before I brought my love of cacti into my office wardrobe, I was just waiting until I found the perfect way. I had seen a couple cactus tops but they were all kind of pricey. Finally, thanks to a blogger I follow on insta, The Sister Studio, I found a cactus print button up from Old Navy that full price is $26.99 and I got it on sale for 40% off. Score!

Although I could wear this classic button up by itself will slacks, that just seemed a little boring. I have a yellow blazer I got from one of the $10 stores in downtown Palm Springs that I haven’t worn yet. I figured now that it is spring, it would be the perfect addition to my cactus outfit. It actually worked great together! The cactus print is pretty small and spread out so it wasn’t too loud with a bright yellow blazer. I just paired my navy slacks with it but really I could wear either my navy, black, or gray. On the weekend I am excited to try my button up with a pair of high waist denim shorts and sandals or wedges (well before it gets too hot to wear a three quarter length sleeve outside in the sun). Find the top linked here!
