i can live in beige, blush and tan all summer long. am i the only one who is all or nothing with colors? i will go all bright colors head to toe or all neutrals. not only do neutral shades look better on us in the summer when we have a little more color, they are the perfect shade to wear then add a hint of color with a fun accessory you want to show off. i chose this chloe & isabel teal earring to add some flair to my neutral look.
it's wine wednesday ya'll! if you know me you know i love wine. it's my go to drink & living in the bay area it's the perfect place to be for good wine. i now want to talk a little bit about my favorite wineries to head to in wine country, because your girl has been to so many i want to spare you the bad spots. if you're heading there you can now go straight to the fun ones.
if this outfit doesn't make you want you to head to wine country, vacation or a wedding then i don't know what will. a floral dress with fun (low) heels is always my go to for a day in the sun at a fun event. i decided to throw this on before brunch and the whole look was a hit. it doesn't hurt that these shoes and dress are both super affordable!
when it's sunny in San Francisco, us San Franciscans live to be outside. Dresses, skirts, booty shorts, chubbies & frat tanks are everywhere. It's one of those cities that is breathtakingly beautiful on warm days and no one takes it for granted. just head over to Fort Mason, Golden Gate Park, the Marina Green or Dolores Park. you'll see they are packed with people having picnics, playing football or volleyball, listening to music and of course drinking (LOL)!
the average person sure as heck doesn't wear a dress to work everyday. they want to be cute & comfy, while functional to wear. we've all tried to wear something to work that looks super cute, but an hour in to the day realize it's super uncomfortable. there are so so many amazing looks you can pull together for work that are extremely comfy yet stylish.
spring and summer are months where i live in maxi dresses. they are comfortable, flattering and i tend to have a ton of fun events i need to wear dresses to during the summer months. buying a new dress for every event i have can break the bank, so i focus on getting nice yet affordable looks.
i just got back in to town from a week long vacation & i am feeling so so refreshed. i spent 8 days lounging, swimming, snorkeling, paddle boarding and sippin'. i couldn't feel better. that being said, we all know when we're traveling we want lightweight, vacation-esque & affordable looks.
my style has always been inspired by my family. my aunts have the absolute best style & we've always chatted about fashion. my aunt Lori has always put a 70's twist on her look. she always has a blonde shaggy haircut with fringe bangs, fun floral maxi dresses and the absolute best jumpsuits. style is one of those things that goes back centuries and we pick up little inspiration throughout our lives, it shapes our style today. i'm so grateful for my funky family to pass on some of their bay are hippie style.
whenever i'm planning on going to an event that i want to wear a dress to, it is usually hard for me to find one that isn't too low cut. i have found that off the shoulder dresses cover up my chest and allow for me to share off other areas i love like my legs. this dress has a bunch of slits so it makes me feel like i can still be cute and show a little bit of skin without having to have my boobs out. anyone else feel me here?
there's nothing more sexy than showing a little shoulder, am i right? over the last few years i've found a ton of off the shoulder tops that i absolutely love. they are perfect for date nights, fun parties and bbq's. they are a little more dressy than your average tee, but casual enough to wear day-to-day. i have a full blown collection at this point & i wanted to share with you some of my absolute favorites, but before i do, here are a few tips on how to style them.
the weather is slowly starting to heat up here in the bay area that it is giving me all the desert vibes. there's something about this weather that brings my obsession with rompers to full force. i always find the coolest, most comfy rompers in the summer. this patterned one is my current favorite. it's perfect with these boots and hat to give it a festival look. you can also pair it with heels and a fun jacket to dress things up a bit.
get to know me a little bit better today as i answer a bunch of questions y’all have been asking me on social media. if you have any more after this, be sure to comment below!

i'm heading out on vacation next month and i have been brightening up my wardrobe as much as i can to match the island vibes i'm waiting for. i am over the moon excited to be at the beach & i feel like this top is the perfect addition to my spring and summer closet. i can wear it out to brunch on the weekends in SF with jeans or pear it with jean shorts and sandals and head to the beach.
the weather is heating up and it's just about time for outdoor concert season. whether you're a festival goer, an amphitheater picnic-er or a country line dancer- it's time to start styling yourself for the fun events ahead. it's my favorite time of year for fashion. there's something about dressing up for events that makes getting ready so much more fun. grab your girls and let's get to styling.
this Easter Sunday is extra special in the Nolan house. it's not only Easter, April Fools Day, but it's also my mama's birthday. i am so excited to head over to my parents house to have a beautiful big brunch with a ton of my family. we will celebrate easter & watch all the kiddos go on an egg hunt, celebrate my mama & afterwards we will be heading to see the new Cirque Du Soleil (a family favorite).
there is nothing like feeling amazing in your outfit. this year I have discovered that bodysuits make me feel amazing. they show my curves, look amazing with so many different looks and are sexy! this new bodysuit from Tobi is fun, flirty and I feel amazing in it.
one thing i love about fashion is taking one piece and wearing it a ton of different ways. take this jumper as an example. i styled it with high knee boots and a turtleneck this winter (here) and decided to change up the vibe as it's gotten warmer with Spring weather. I am all about this comfortable and fun free people dress and can't get enough of it.
happy first day of Spring! you know what today means?! it's officially wedding season (am-i-riiighhhht)! last year i was in 3 weddings and attended 7. it was a big year for many of my close friend and a big year for parties. i attended bachelorettes, bridal showers, rehearsal dinners and big weddings. i needed a dress or jumpsuit for each event which can definitely add up. since i am now a pro wedding guest, i thought i would share with you some of the best Spring dresses to wear to these fun events.
