Summer Blues

Myth: Pink and blue don’t match.

For a long time fashionistas have said that pink and blue do not match. Yet with the recent outburst of unicorn and mermaid everything, pink and blue colors have been used in these themes together most of the time. And guess what? They are PERFECT together.

Look at all these tasty unicorn snacks and notice the colors…

Not sure what half of these treats actually are but Pinterest said they were unicorn snacks. so…

Don’t you just want to eat them all?

***Disclaimer: it depends what shade of blue you use. For my look, light baby blue is the ideal blue shade. Not all shades of blue are equal.

The temperature is rising and in California the summer is anything but over. Light baby blue is the color of this season. I’m 100% here for it. Recently, I got my nails done a light baby blue color… to match my purse, duh! Light baby blue pairs PERFECTLY with pink. As a kid I’d color princess dresses pink and light blue in my coloring books. I would be told that these colors don’t really match, but I knew in my heart that someday this would be acceptable. Fast forward many years, it is now a thing.  Don’t give up on your ideals ladies! Although pastel colors  have been around for a long time, pink and blue aren’t seen paired together that often.

Speaking of pastel colors, the trick with pairing pink and blue are in choosing the right shades. Choose pastel colors of pink and blue, that is the key to pulling off this style.

Okay, now about my HANDBAG. Currently, I’m obsessed with it for the same reasons I’m writing this post… PINK + BLUE = YESS. The HANDBAG is Aldo. The scarf that came included adds a girly touch that contrasts but complements the handbag. It takes the right silky scarf to complement such a trendy bag. The main strap is detachable, but I prefer to leave it on because holding things get annoying for long periods of time. When it comes to fashion I’d like to say I’m pretty practical.

The shoes are also Aldo. They have a square shape and a retro transparent pink front strap. They’re so cute and retro.

The glasses aren’t meant to block shade… they’re meant to throw shade…

I kid, they’re just a personal touch to add on to the pink and blue look. I prefer my glasses to to be dark to block the shade.

My furry friend makes an appearance on next week’s blog.

Much love! See you next week!

Rockin’ the Teeny-Tiny Micro Bag

What will actually fit in this tiny bag?

What is the deal with these miniature handbags that have been trending lately? Bad Gal Riri, Kourtney Kardashian, and Kendall Jenner have all been spotted sporting these small handbags which are actually called micro handbags.

These handbags are actually nothing new. They used to be trendy in the 1990’s. The micro handbags are an exaggeratedly small approach to size and practicality. You can probably fit a small compact, lipstick and maybe your iPhone, but the micro bags are chic, fun, trendy and all the it-girls seem to be wearing them.

Here’s how I wore mine.

img_7885

I love playing with fashion and the micro bag lets me do just this. But where and on what occasion can you wear such a tiny bag? Try dinner dates and catching brunch with your girls.

This off the shoulder jacket look was heavily inspired by none other than @BadGalRiri.

These small handbags remind us women of how much we actually carry around in a regular sized bag. Wearing this handbag out and about made me realize how I took for granted the size of a standard purse. I remember as a small child I’d poke fun at my mom for having so much stuff inside her handbag, it was like a black hole when it came time for me to fetch her something like gum or a pen. But now as I get older, I find myself laughing because I’m slowly turning into my mom… my handbag is indeed a “black hole.”

The micro handbag goes against the conventional handbag, no doubt, but it’s fun to think that I’ll only need to carry my keys, phone, some credit cards, and a lipstick… but will it all fit? Nope!

Only a lipstick, and a compact mirror fit…

I love the look of the micro bag. Not for its practicality, but for its playful flair and minimalistic appeal. In all honesty, I love handbags but let’s get real they get annoying to carry around all day. Ugh! Being a lady is so much work we gotta carry around a handbag all day and throw stuff in it, but with the micro bag being so small you can just slip it onto your wrist and go on about your day (or a fun night!) .

Honey, take me on vacation! Styling the Floral Romper

Hello Fabulous Fashionist@s!♥ C.C here. Have you ever wanted to escape on a vacation getaway to the beach and just become a mermaid? And never return? Same. Well although we can only be mermaids in our hearts, we can still soak up the sun in style while on vacation. My favorite trend? Rompers! They’re great because they come in all sorts of colors and styles giving you many options to find something that fits you. For this article I will be talking about the shoulder less bell sleeve romper style.

img_3530

I LOVE the pastel colors on my romper. I also LOVE the off the shoulder bell sleeve design giving it a boho edge but the pink accents keep it girly.

img_3502

It has a thin sort of belt to tie at the waist to frame it. If you’re a short curvy girl like myself, I recommend a romper that has a similar design that frames your waist. Since I’m short I find that the rompers that are sort of loose fitting makes one look shapeless and out of proportion. Don’t let that happen to you. This is what makes shopping for rompers tricky. You can totally look fabulous, just find one that frames your body shape and above all makes you feel and look amazing. Because we came to slay.

img_3522

What I love about rompers is that you can just throw one, put on your favorite heels and maybe accessorize and you’ll look fancy a’f with minimal effort. It’s perfect for those days when you just don’t know what to wear.

img_3571

But as you know me, I don’t know how to keep it simple. I paired this romper with my favorite sun hat because you can’t go on vacation without a sun hat.  I was feeling the pink accents on my romper so I paired it with these bright pink chunky heeled sandals. Oh, and my outfit isn’t complete without a little bit of jewelry bling.

This romper was also styled with chunky heeled sandals!

Here’s another bell sleeve romper from Fashion Nova:

If you’re feeling a little bit more edgy, try going for a flowy bell sleeve instead of the shoulder less style. Romper from Forever 21.

I own a romper similar to this design (pictured on the bottom) and I absolutely love it because I can just throw on my favorite sandals for a casual look. I recommend it and it’s also from Forever 21.

See how well the chunky heeled sandals are styled with the romper? Take notes.

Chose your romper wisely and you’ll be on your way to being the most fabulous woman in town.

See you next week!

Hello World!

Hello Fabulous fashionista! So nice to meet you, thanks for stopping by! I’d like to formally introduce myself as the Classic Californian. Now let me tell you a bit about myself, not only am I enamored with clothing but I’ve had my eyes glued to fashion magazines ever since I was a little girl. Fast forward 16 years and that “passion for fashion” is still in me. Which is why I have decided to start this blog. So why am I the “Classic Californian“? …Good question.

img_2749-1-4

I’m “Classic” because I’m inspired by the fashion, culture and music of the past century. Coco Chanel, Elizabeth Taylor and the 60’s just to name a few. Yet some of these fashion icons and their style continue to be prevalent in the fashion world. Take Audrey Hepburn for example. Her elegance, style and grace is timeless. Call that classic if you may. Fashion fads come and go but there are styles that deserve to be classic. Take any styles from any decade and guess what? You can wear that today! How? Stick around and I’ll show you how they could be worn today with a modern twist. That is just proof that the ever-changing fashion world is consistently bringing back fashion fads and styles. But some fads are best left in their respected time periods (ahem, 80’s crazy neon dresses and tutus? Yep that. )

img_2698

I’m “Californian” because I’m a sun kissed California girl. I love my home state and I can’t imagine anywhere that comes close to the west coast. [insert ‘California Gurls’ by Katy Perry here] I appreciate the culture, fashion, beaches and tons of famous land marks you can only find here! I want to show you all about it!

img_2788-1-4

Fashion and style are two different things. Fashion is bought however, style is something you posses. No amount of luxury fashion brands will give you style if you don’t make it your own.
