Ruffled Mini Dress

limonada ruffled mini dress

Ooohh girl, a little self tanner and a mini dress – is it summer yet (and if you see self-inflicted tan lines… I’m gonna need you to graciously let that go)!?

When it comes to picking up some super cute spring pieces, I’ve been loving the Moon & Meadow collection at Bloomingdale’s.  Within this collection there are five brands, and they have so many adorable dresses and sets (like this top with these pants = need) that would be perfect for festival season. I’m sharing some of my picks below!

And this dress has oranges on it… so I felt like I needed to wear it in Orange, in Orange County… because I couldn’t help myself.  Now I just need to hold an orange and think of the right tagline. Suggestions welcome!

Wearing a Dress… As a Top

I recently went down a fashion-inspired rabbit hole that is Tash Sefton.  She is an Australian fashionista who thinks outside the box and has this laid back, cool girl interesting but not too styled look that I can’t get enough of. One thing I saw her doing that I’d never thought about before was turning a dress into a top.  I think this idea works particularly well with a dress that buttons down the front like this one.  You can unbutton the bottom and let it hang naturally for that…

Most and Least Worn Luxury Accessories (and Why!)

I’ve been wanting to put together a post like this for a while. I am all about some luxury pieces, while mixing in lower price points and “looks for less.”  I recently shared a post about high/low mixing here and some of my favorite investment pieces here, but this concept of mixing Target and Chanel will always be something I’m preaching.  You don’t have to spend a million bucks to look like a million bucks! That being said… I’ve made some (self-proclaimed) excellent luxury purchases and some not as great…

Styling a Kimono

I don’t know if everyone is aware of how versatile kimonos really are.  When I saw this beauty (an exclusive item to Bloomingdale’s), I thought it would be such a great piece for spring and summer! A few ideas on how to wear a kimono: Over a solid color (usually all black or all white). With a belt bag to cinch your waist. As a swimsuit coverup. With a camisole, cutoffs and slides. If it’s big enough wrap it totally closed and belt it as a dress!   Seriously, ladies….

Tied Button Down Shirt

A great white button down shirt can go with everything. I recently shared this shirt here in an outfit that I think any woman of any age or size can rock. Now that it’s getting warmer, another way to rock a classic button down shirt is to tie it at the waist! There are shirts like this being sold online… but why buy another shirt when you can just tie up something that’s already in your closet? You can do this with any high waisted skirt, pants, and so on….

The Meanest Thing That Was Ever Said to Me

I remember when this happened to me, over two years ago, and thinking I wanted to share this experience on CBL.  But I was still so taken aback and honestly, embarrassed, that I didn’t know how I could share it without sounding whiney or like I was fishing for validation (which I promise you I’m not!). BUT, it has been on my mind and heart lately and I thought… let’s just go for it.  I think this is something that we can all learn from – because I know I…
