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!

Hello Fabulous fashionist@s!♥ It’s hump-day! (Happy Hump-Day?) but can the weekend come any faster?

I picked up this dress at a local boutique and I’m in love with the blush pink lace. This color is perfect for the spring that’s right around the corner. Can you believe it’s still winter? According to the almanac calendar spring is set to start March 20th at 9:15 am pacific time. I’m totally looking forward to longer sunny days.

For this look I opted for these pointed nude heels as to keep it neutral. But added a rhinestone choker for a glam effect which I made that more dramatic.

I also opted for pink tinted sun glasses so I’d avoid direct contact with the sun and the haters.

The pink blazer completes the outfit where I aimed at creating a more chromatic effect but as you can see the sparkly choker keeps it glam, classy and interesting. I sometimes find that monochrome outfits fall a little flat. From that happening, I suggest adding a little bling to your outfit for a more dramatic effect….

…you’ll stand out, look elegant and I’m sure you’ll get all sorts of compliments. After all, why blend in when you can stand out?

As you can see Coco Chanel was being such a diva while shooting for this post. She has herself on such a high esteem, it’s kind of amazing to see this on a dog. She loves it when I carry her around in a purse, so it’s always fun to include a bag I can carry her in. My favorite ones are Betsy Johnson handbags, they’re not meant exclusively for pets but Coco absolutely loves them.

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. )

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!

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.
