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…

I guess this is some sort of Jell-O art?

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!
