The FLORAL trend: Not boring or stuffy this time!

Hello you! My favorite person!

Little fashion post for today. This dress, I love. I love it! I want to share it with youuuu because it's soft and flow-y, and AFFORDABLE.

Because floral, when done right, is like the SEXIEST.

But if it’s done poorly, you’re like Easter threw up all over a Lilly Pulitzer picnic blanket. It’s suffocating me.

I would never think that I’d love floral so much, because I'm usually into streetwear, or anything with a bit of an edge.

But a moody floral, is badass.

It’s the big floral print, mixed with dope (often neutral) colors that really compliments an edgy look. Throwing in the femininity of flowers.

This dress I'm wearing here is the shit. It's by dee elle AND it’s $48 dollars from Nordstrom. You can wear it basically anywhere, and I love that it covers the arms. Just super flattering for any shape basically the way it’s cut.

Plus, this pattern is a bit rocker chic, no?

Let's get to it. 



 

Also this is all under $100 dollars. NOTICE A TREND? I love things that are quality - for CHEAP.

Like this dress, which I love because it's bell sleeves and fits in ALL the right places.

Plus the floral pattern here is more edgy and good for day and night.

Keep me posted which ones you love, or which ones you buy! I love this look for an easy date night, or casual day out. It’s a bit dressy, but not too much. Plus, loose and flow-y.

My favorite words.

Now off to workout! Feeling like I need a good sweat, and like DETOX. How’s your week? Feeling this look?

Love ya,

Krista

Love in a major way: Fringe bags for Summer!

Hello hello! So glad you’re here!

So just in the swing of the week now, and it's MAY GRAY in Los Angeles. A month where it's basically just overcast all the time, and it's weirdly affected me. Just a bit more sluggish and unmotivated than usual, but what can ya do.

It also could be coming off a weekend in AUSTIN with my best friends, and I am exhausted. We had the BEST TIME on Lake Travis, exploring the city and just truly cherishing our time together. More on that later!

But a post on my bag, that I was rocking during the trip. I wrote about fringe and the fringe trend a few months ago, but I mean, I’m glad it’s stuck around! It’s the boho gypsy, long wavy hair undone, babe look that I just adore.

Wearing fringe on your purse or bag is the best way to do it. When you see the movement in the bag on fringe, it’s my favorite. Detail that you can play up or done, or not wear if you don’t want to.

Plus, if you’re doing a plain outfit this is the perfect pick me up.

I got my fringe bag in black suede from a boutique in Vietnam and it rules. I can't link the exact one, since it was from a tiny shop in Hoi Ann and I mean I don't know if they even had a credit card swiper. Plus, it rules, but I'm going to be real that there's cuter ones out there. LOL.

It’s soft, carries just enough and I love the fringe look. I love suede, no matter how impractical it is. In L.A. you can wear ANYTHING and never fear rain, sleet or snow.

There are SO MANY good fringe bags, I just have to pick up another I think!

P.S. Rebecca Minkoff is killing it right now.

What’s your favorite? Any of these you love? It’s the perfect time to shop a new fringe trend you know?

Again for music festivals you must frolic with your fringe bag! How adorbs for photos!? :) 

Always glad you read! Keep me posted with you! I need to write my Austin weekending post ya know?!

COOL SNEAKERS: so fresh and so CLEAN.

Hi my PEOPLE!

Not going to lie I'm in a rut this week but, HEY, life goes on and ya just need to keep moving forward.

It's just thoughts like, WHAT AM I DOING WITH MY LIFE? But I'm sure we all have that at some point.

How's everyone else's' week going? Would love to hear it, so talk to me!

I had to write about the new kicks I have been wearing around EVERY DAY.

(BTW, I get obsessed with stuff. I'll wear it out, and then NEVER again).

So right now, I am wearing these white sneakers with every single thing I own.

Floral dress, check. Suede shorts, check. Maxi dress with leather moto, check. With my red silk pajamas to get the mail, check. 

I had a time where I only wore my black flat sneakers but those got holes at the bottom (I'm serious LOL) and it was time to move on. I'm all about comfort AND style people. Comfort AND style.

How is it that sneakers are so cool? If you would tell me that, FREAKING SHELL TOES ARE BACK. I mean, WHAT.

Remember rocking shell toes with Delia’s bell bottoms and an Abercrombie & Fitch logo shirt? All day baby, and I was SO HOT. 

One time in 8th grade I got sent to the principals because my bell bottom jeans were SO low rise that my butt crack was seriously hanging out all day long. At that time, I probably thought butt cracks lured boys in, that's how fucking clueless I was. Not much has changed I guess.

BUT ANYWAY! Back to SHOES.

The super clean, super WHITE, crisp sneaker, just makes ANY look sexy. It’s the urban, badass girl that’s feminine enough to rock something masculine...look that I’m obsessed with.

I shy away from these trends usually because I have big ass feet (FACT), which makes it masculine to wear sneakers, but I'm past caring about that when I find a trend I love. I mean how cute would little feet be in these!?! 

You can rock these shoes with ripped skinnies (also in right now) or even with an ultra feminine dress to make it unexpected, there’s nothing better.

Truly there hasn't been anything that I can't wear with them, and that's probably my favorite part. 

Cool girl versatility! Plus they are under $100 dollars.
