One of my favorite ways to style outfits is to mix and match affordable pieces of clothing with luxury accessories. It’s a great way to look expensive without actually spending the money on designer clothes. I’m definitely not making that type of money yet to be spending thousands of dollars on just fabric, but maybe one day. We can always dream right?

Happy Tuesday Everyone! I forgot to mention that my previous post was my last post for the Singapore series. I’m still going to do an overall guide of Singapore, but that’ll be a little later. So today, I’m presenting you with a casual, but dressy outfit that you can easily add to your spring wardrobe. The pictures were taken at Descanso Gardens in La Cañada Flintridge (about 20 minutes north of DTLA). I really wanted to see cherry blossoms so we made a plan to spend the morning up there.

On our last night in Singapore, Mother Nature gave us the most beautiful blue skies and an amazing golden sunset. The weather was just right where it was hot during the day, but it steadily stayed warm throughout the night. It was the type of weather where you can actually go out in let’s say, a floral mini dress and not ever feel cold.

Spring is right around the corner and I couldn’t be more excited! Not that LA had any sort of crazy winter weather, but it’s always nice to see flowers start to bloom and watch the days get longer.  It also means the start of spring fashion. So apparently we’re saying goodbye to millennial pink and we’re now saying hello to beautiful pale purples. Whether it be lavender or lilac, there’s no doubt that light purples are going to be in.

So, if you had the chance to read my previous post, you would know that I tried to hit up three ski resorts this weekend. It was to finish up my snowboarding goal of hitting every Vail Resort on the West Coast. Well, I didn’t even get close. Instead, we decided to stay at Beaver Creek the whole weekend instead. It actually snowed on Saturday so the snow conditions and trail runs were amazing. Thanks to credit card points, we got to stay at the amazing Park Hyatt Beaver Creek. The hotel is located right off the gondola so we wanted to utilize the ski in/ski out as much as we could. I’ll be writing a post about the Park Hyatt later, but for now, lets talk about Valentine’s Day!
