If You Build It Pink, I Will Come

Top and Sunnies: Ebay Skirt: H&M

This past week has been so magical. First, I had the absolute pleasure of meeting one of my favorite bloggers, Chrisa Sparkles at Disneyland. If you’re not familiar with her she is like a real life Disney Rainbow Princess and an inspiration for all us other bloggers to push boundaries and never shy away from expressing your true self with fashion.

Alas, today I finally committed to sitting 4 hours in Friday afternoon traffic to experience one of LA’s pinkest instillations. “Le Refuge” by Marc Ange. Perfectly nestled along the pink and green color palette of the Beverly Hills Hotel, currently sits the beautiful pink cabana. Naturally, these pink oasis’ have a tendency to unleash my inner Barbie girl in full force! And this pink paradise was not exception as I went full fabulous pink force. One of the hotel patrons even sang the Barbie Girl song as I passed her in the hallway. Originally, I fell in love with the Wildfox version of this top but alas it sold out before I even realized it was a thing. (Shocking, I know.) Alas, I found an inspired version on Ebay for only $12! Even better than the original which cost roughly $50! Ebay has been a shocking go to destination for bargain deal and one of a kind vintage finds!

Le Refuge can be found in the citrus garden of the Beverly Hills Hotel and is only on display until August 23rd! If you make the trip I strongly recommend the Polo Lounge! And ask for Paul, he’s literally the best!

I didn’t think it would ever happen but sweater weather finally arrived today! And in typical cliche form I couldn’t help but talk about it with nearly everyone I came into contact with today. Even the guy at Verizon, who enlightened me to the fact he spent $200 on his seasonal sweaters yesterday. I couldn’t help but share with him my technique for prepping my closet for a new season is to think about that season after it ends. Scratching your head thinking, what in the world is she talking about? Basically, my secret for being seasonally appropriate is to invest in seasonal pieces in the after sale. I got my swimsuits in January when stores were trying to move through their previous seasons to make way for new collections. Similarly, I invested in my sweaters a few months ago when the temperatures were still triple digit.

Ok, truthfully I would have looked for any excuse to buy this totes adorbs Barbie by Forever 21 sweater. But I knew it would be perfect for a cold day and wouldn’t ya know, I was right. It is just enough for temperatures that drop to about 60 degrees, aka the time of year when So Cal residents fear of dying of hypothermia. Ok, maybe that’s just me, but in truth anything less than 75 degrees is only acceptable temperatures when I have cute sweaters such as this to endure it.

Oh my favorite Tarina earrings. Always the perfect accent when looking to complete that Barbie girl look.
