Novella Royale Janis Bells

Olivaceous Bell Bottoms

Swirl Boutique Bell Bottoms

Olivaceous

I’ve been seeing bell bottom leggings all over my instagram feed so naturally when I came across these at my favorite boutique, I had to give them a whirl. I honestly was not sure I could pull them off but OMG…they are ridiculously comfy. Plus, these are literally identical to the Novella Royales except with a much more affordable price tag! They also come in a burgundy/multi color! SO cute!

Tip: If you order a pair…they run really long. I took them in to have them hemmed and realized they have a raw edge so I just cut mine myself and they look perfect! As for sizing, I went with a medium (since I tend to order up on anything fitted) but could have gotten away with a small.

Palm Springs

If you’ve been following my blog for any amount of time, you probably already know that we are Palm Springs regulars. It is our absolute favorite place to go for weekend getaways. Although this time we brought Eep* so we decided to stay at a more kid friendly resort which is about 30 minutes away from our usual destination. I had visions of reading magazines by the side of the pool but ended up spending more time IN the pool than I ever have in my entire life! I also always have big plans to take outfit pics in a fun new location whenever we make it out there but I didn’t snap a single pic with my good camera. So I apologize if you already saw these pics on IG, but I had to share for those of you that aren’t following…yet! =)

*Eep is my son’s nickname on the blog.

Boho Dress

Boho Chic

Justfab Timea Wedge

Justfab Timea Sandals

I came across this dress in my girl Shanna’s Poshmark closet and immediately scooped it up. It’s actually the second dress I scored from her closet! Even though it is Fall colors….which I am NOT really ready for…despite all of my magazines telling me I should be…I couldn’t help but wear it. BTW…speaking of shopping closets…I have been working on organizing my closet since the day I finally promised my husband my laundry basket would no longer be overflowing convinced my husband to let me change one of our spare rooms into a closet/wardrobe/dressing/office room. This past weekend I FINALLY got all of my clothes switched over from plastic hangers to the space saving non-slip felt hangers, took a HUGE bag of clothes to the dry cleaners and even took a handful of items to the tailor for alterations. Baby steps my friends, baby steps. Hope you all have an amazing weekend! xo

Floral Shorts

Ruffle Sleeve Top

I bought these shorts and the matching blazer from the Prabal Gurung for Target collaboration over a year and a half ago. The blazer still has the tag on it and has been hanging in my closet unworn. But I can’t bear to get rid of it yet! So do any of you guys watch “Ladies of London”? I am SO sad that it’s already over! I don’t know if I’ve ever been instantly hooked to a show as quickly as I was to this one. Clearly I have a reality show addiction but here’s hoping it gets renewed for another season!!! Or if not, please PLEASE let Caroline get her own show. Totally #teamcaroline.

I love white on white for summer…who am I kidding…I love winter whites too. But I couldn’t help but feel a little Yolanda Foster-ish in this outfit. My RHOBH watching friends know what I’m talking about. She always wears white jeans but always looks fab if you ask me!
