CURRENTLY CRAVING: ZELLA

from top left: tee, long sleeve tee, x-ray crop leggings, double headband from bottom left: gray leggings, black pants, long sleeve, black leggings Zella is by far my favorite brand to wear while working out. It isn’t as expensive as other brands like Lulu Lemon, but durable. I bought my first pair of Zella leggings 5 years ago and they are still going strong!! If that’s not durable and long lasting, I don’t know what it! I ...

MONOCHROMATIC

pants, shirt, jacket (old) similar here and here There is something so simple yet classy when it comes to a monochromatic outfit. It’s understated, but seems to never tire. You can’t go wrong with a monochromatic outfit either. It’s a classic. I have become obsessed with these wide leg pants. I also have them in the gray color, I loved them that much! (The navy and the black are currently on sale!!) They are super ...

LIFE VIA INSTAGRAM

I know I have been M.I.A. lately, but life has been super busy. So I thought I’d share some snaps from my instagram! You can follow me @blushingdahlia At San Francisco City Hall for the Preschool For All Festival of Learning, a work event. I wore this shirt, these pants, which are my new absolute favorite (have the black pair as well), necklace (no longer available) similar here, purse I seriously crave this all the time. It is a ...

FEELIN’ GLAM

Being prom season and all, I wanted to get all glammed up just because. I will admit that this is my little sister’s prom dress, but I am totally obsessed with it. How gorgeous is the ombre on this pretty number!? It literally looks like a work of art. Being the sweet sister she is, she let me borrow to take fun glam photos in. I felt like a fairy princess! Cheesy, I know, but so true! The earrings were my own. They are old, but I ...

UPDOS AND LASHES

^Before hair and makeup^ Oh prom! I remember thinking prom was the biggest deal, when it really wasn’t, but to a teenager your priorities are different. My little sister, Katie, had prom a few weeks ago. I did her hair and makeup, which was so much fun! I thought I would share with you all what the finish product was.  I knew right away that I wanted her hair to be up and out of her face. She has extremely thick hair, but that just ...

I knew I wanted ...

Girlfriend Jeans

shirt, jeans, sandals, bag old similar here and here, sunglasses, belt, lipstick I have to say that these jeans are amazing! They are so comfortable and versatile. They can easily be dressed up or down to your liking. I am all about wearing the same pieces, but done differently. These jeans are similar to the boyfriend fit, just a slightly slimmer fit creating the girlfriend fit. Does anyone else really love this style as much as I do? I ...

Choux Bakery in San Francisco

I love sweets! I am all about sweets! This adorably cute bakery started following me on instagram, so I had to check this place out. All last week I  literally drooled over their yummy pictures of cream puffs and chounuts. Saturday morning could not come fast enough! It is my pleasure to introduce you to Choux Bakery in San Francisco where everything is baked with love. It is cream puff heaven. All the cream puffs have a name and are unique ...

Skin Care

Josie Maran Argan Light Oil, philosophy cleanser, yes to tomatoes bar, clarisonic Mia, first aid beauty facial pads, first aid beauty overnight mask I won’t lie, my skin is no where near perfect. It has a mind of it’s own. Somedays it looks amazing and other days it’s just not its best. I do try to eat clean and exercise, but my skin still has its issues. When my sister and I were in Disneyland, I even said it aloud to her, ...

Greens and Kale

shirt, jeans, heels, necklace (similar here, here and here), sunglasses I have already said it, but will say it again, graphic tees are my jam! This KALE one is super soft and comfy. I recently discovered the brand Sub_Urban Riot at Nordstrom and love it all. It’s super affordable and the tees are kind of silly. I wanted to dress up this graphic tee by adding some nude pumps and a colorful statement necklace. Since there was some green ...
