Life and The Style Files

I had the opportunity to go to North Carolina this past week. I saw some of my best friends and was able to go to High Point Market as well. It has been a whirlwind of a month. Going from California to North Carolina one after another has been crazy. I love traveling and wish I could do it more!

I have neglected the blog this week due to traveling, being sick and just enjoying life. Sometimes blogging takes a lot of time and sometimes you just need a little break. I will be up and at 'em next week. My birthday is on Sunday and I am so NOT excited to be getting older. Haha! Hope you all have a great weekend! :)

Mara Hoffman and The Style Files

Friday Favorites: Mara Hoffman
Last week, I was able to attend a POPSUGAR and SHOPSTYLE party in Palm Springs. It was seriously the coolest experience. My top moment was meeting the INCREDIBLE designer, Mara Hoffman. Not only are her designs stunning, but Mara Hoffman as a person is so beautiful inside and out. She told me she loved me and that I was so cute! Totally made my day and I was star stuck! So let me show you some of my favorite things from Mara Hoffman's collection. Let's just say it is COLORFUL! I can't wait to show you pictures of the whole party. It was a total dream.


Her clothes are AMAZING right? I was lucky enough to talk to her and get a picture with this beautiful lady! My arm is probably the size of her leg, haha! She is now my new favorite designer!

The Polka Dot Dress

I am back from my vacation in Palm Springs. I have decided when my hubby and I retire, I want to live there. It is hot, beautiful, in California, not too far from Orange County. Not to mention, shopping, swimming pools, and golf galore. Heaven. 

Lets talk polka dots for a second. I will never tire of them. I have had this dress for a couple of years now and I feel like it is always "in". What are your thoughts on polka dots? Love them, hate them?

What to Wear to Disneyland in the Spring

My husband and I are obsessed with Disneyland. We could go there all the time, anytime. It doesn't help that we both grew up 10 minutes from it. We both have such amazing memories there. The thing that I have the hardest time with every time I go is, WHAT TO WEAR. Haha.

Southern California always has nice weather, however in the early morning and evening it is rather chilly. You need something to keep you warm. For the most part It will be a low of 50' in the morning/evening and a high of 70' in the afternoon and if your lucky 80'.

What to Wear in the Spring at Disneyland:
- light jacket/cardigan
-short sleeve shirt OR long sleeve shirt that you can put sleeves up easily.
-comfortable pants/shorts/capris
-comfortable shoes

Here is what I wore, it was a pretty comfy outfit for the whole day of running around all day. When I got hot I just took my cardigan off and then I would seriously put it right back on after getting into the shade again. Most ride lines are shaded, so having a light jacket/cardigan is essential.

Chandra from More Modern Modesty
She looks fabulous in this leopard maxi dress, and paired those shoes perfectly!
Something unique about Chandra? She chooses to dress herself modest even in today's dwindling hemline. Go girl!
