Hopped on the Plane at LAX

This post is the first of many long overdue posts about my adventures in SoCal! I had such a great trip, and have so much to talk about, but I’ll start with my first day. My first day started off with a looong flight and lunch at The Beverly Hills Hotel.

I wore an oversized pink stripped polo and black leggings. This outfit was comfortable, without looking sloppy.

Since we left early in the morning I wore minimal makeup. My tip for traveling is to wear nothing but moisturizer until you are almost to your destination.


Once you do put on makeup, make sure to keep it light. I put on concealer, powder, mascara, and of course, Chapstick. It was perfect for a casual lunch at The Beverly Hills hotel, and a great way to start my adventures in La-la Land!

All About The Ears

As I promised in my last post, this post is all about The Fairy Godsisters! I was lucky enough to find The Fairy Godsisters in their earliest stages. Megan and Erin make some of the prettiest, and most unique ears in the game.

Let’s start off with some general facts about this awesome etsy. First off, this is a family business. Megan and Erin are sisters in law and the cutest BFFs! You can really tell that there is so much love in every headband they make. If quality is a concern for you, have no fear. These ears are sewn together beautifully, and made with high quality products. The ears are stuffed, as opposed to the flatter unstuffed ears many shops make. This honestly made them look so much more, “finished.”

Finally, let’s talk about comfort. Something that is not often taken into consideration when it comes to park ears is comfort. When there are already so many factors that could take away from your comfort levels in play, the last thing you need is an uncomfortable headband squeezing behind your ears. The Fairy Godsisters must have sprinkled magical fairy comfort dust onto their ears, because both pairs were super comfortable. I didn’t have to take a single break all day!!

If all of this wasn’t enough to convince you that these ears are awesome, they’re just down right adorable! The Lilly print  I loved for obvious reasons, but the Briar Rose really took me by surprise. The big tulle bow was such a unique and beautiful touch!

I paired the Lilly ears with a hot pink crop top from Nordstrom Rack, and mint shorts from J. Crew. This cute color combo matched the print perfectly, and was super comfortable!

I took a girlier approach when I was Styling the Briar Rose pair, and really took a cue from Aurora. This sweet bow back dress from Macy’s was a steal at under $20, and looked great!

How do you style your park ears?

Disneyland

I am so excited to tell you guys all about LA, starting with… DISNEYLAND!

Although my heart belongs to Walt Disney World, getting to venture into the original Disneyland was seriously amazing! My Uncle met my mom and I for the weekend, despite having a broken foot. What a trooper! The California hills were not so magical when we had to push his wheelchair up hills, but it was totally worth it for all of the amazing rides, like Hyperspace Mountain and the Storybook Land Canal.

It was an exceptionally hot day, so I opted for this adorable t shirt dress from Nordstrom Rack. It was cool and comfy, and really allowed my ears to shine.

Speaking of ears, these ears from The Fairy God-sisters are soooooo adorable! I actually couldn’t decide which pair was my favorite, so I took both the Briar Rose and Lilly Pulitzer! Now these ears aren’t just adorable, they are super comfortable too. I didn’t have to take a single break from them all day!

I will be doing a whole post about how I style them for a day in the parks, but for now be sure to check out The Fairy God-sisters on Etsy and Instagram!

Have a magical weekend!

Rocking Red Dress!

It’s been a long time since my last post, but that just means you’re in for a whole lot of recap posts (including Disneyland!)

The final dress LC Lauren Conrad dress from the Minnie Rocks the Dots collection, is this red dress with jumbo polka dots. This dress just really screamed rock n’ roll to me, so I paired it with these black peep toes, and a sky high sock bun! This look is so much fun, and perfect for the edgy Disney princesses out there.

You could of course also  pair it with for sweet flats and a head full of curl for a more traditional look.

This dress was quite honestly my least favorite, simply because it doesn’t scream Minnie Mouse, but if you are going for a more subtle ode to Disney, then this rocking red dress will fit the bill!

Navy Mickey Mouse Dress with a Ruffle Trim

As I’ve mentioned in my last two posts, I absolutely adore the latest LC Lauren Conrad Minnie Mouse collection!

DSC01406

Honestly I was not sure how I would feel about this dress, but once I tried it on all of my doubts melted away. First, lets start off by talking about the fit. This dress has such a flattering fit!

DSC01408

The material is stiff enough to stand away from your body, but light enough to look nice and flowy. For a dressed up look, I paired this adorable dress with some vintage inspired nude Nine West pumps. (isn’t the side detail just darling!?)

DSC01402

My favorite part of the dress is… You guessed it: the details! The print is oh so adorable, and a perfect mix of Disney magic and subtlety. The little ruffles and buttons down the front are stunning, and add just the right girly flair!

This dress is perfect for a day of exploring in the happiest place on earth!

New Navy Daisy Dress!

Yoo-hoo! Welcome back for another round of new Disney dresses!! If you missed my last post about the adorable coral dress from this line, you can see it here.

Let’s jump right in! This adorable navy dress was initially my favorite dress from this line, and with good reason!What first caught my eye was this darling daisy print. It is so reminiscent of Minnie’s classic vintage look and I absolutely adore it! The adorable polka dot faux collar just ads to the vintage feel that this dress exudes.

When I found this dress, I immediately remembered these stunning Crown Vintage pumps and knew they would be a perfect pair.

This outfit makes me so happy! There is something so fun about wearing a Minnie Mouse inspired outfit that isn’t overtly, “Disneyfied.”

Until next time, have a magical day!

New Disney Dresses!

Besides music, there are two things that get me really excited. Disney, and dresses. Put those two together and I’m the happiest girl on earth!

DSC01377

I will be doing a series of posts on all four of the dresses from the LC Lauren Conrad Minnie Rocks the Dots collection, as well as the Sephora Minnie Rocks the Dots collection. All of the dresses I will be talking about are on sale for about $25.00 at Kohl’s, and with coupons, you might even get a lower price!

DSC01366

Now let’s start by talking about this gorgeous dress! Although the color is called “ditsy red,” it is more of a coral color that leans towards a peachy pink. The color and cut are both incredibly flattering. The combination of the pretty color, adorable Minnie print, and the flattering shape make this comfortable knit dress a perfect park outfit.

I think it would be an adorable option for the Flower and Garden festival, but is fabulous for any spring or summer excursion to the parks!

DSC01383

The little details throughout the line are adorable, including the adorable lace faux Peter Pan collar, and tiny Minnie Mouse print on this dress.

Of course I wouldn’t wear these adorable lace Jessica Simpson heels to the parks, but I would totally wear this in “real life!”

My Thoughts On Easter

Hello everyone! I have been on temporary hiatus, because let’s be honest, sometimes there just aren’t enough hours in the day! Between traveling, auditions, rehearsals and shows I have not been able to make blogging a priority! Be on the lookout for some life updates coming soon, but for now, enjoy this little post about Easter!

IMG_9354

Easter is one of my favorite holidays, second only to Christmas. Besides the religious connotations, which are very important to me, Easter is all about renewal. There is something about it that serves as a reminder that every morning we wake up and are in charge of who we will be. The possibilities are truly endless!

IMG_9326

Another thing I love about Easter, is that it is the holiday of florals! This year I wore this gorgeous Lilly Pulitzer dress that I scored during last summers after party sale. The pink flowers are so beautiful and springy!

I hope that you all had a lovely and relaxing Easter!

Put Some Soul in It!

Last Saturday I had the pleasure of taking my first ever SoulCycle class, thanks to the SoulCycle x Target collaboration. I honestly had such a fabulous time!! I was a high-energy environment that really inspired me to keep going, even though it was a really tough workout!

IMG_8262

Now I do have one word of caution regarding SoulCycle. If you’re more petite, be ready for some discomfort. Even on the lowest setting, the seat was too far away from the pedals. The positive side of this is that it encouraged me to stay up off of my seat, which is great for your quads! The other area of discomfort was my knees. I got bruises on the inside of both of my knees from repeatedly colliding with the resistance knob. I would definitely ask if there was any way to avoid this if I was to take another class, as the bruises were painful, and wicked ugly!

IMG_8263

Now let’s talk about what I wore! I’ll start off by saying that no, I do not usually wear makeup to workout! I do however like to wear some light makeup and a bold lipstick if I am going to be photographed while working out. If you guys would like to know more about my hair and makeup routine to look photo ready, just let me know! Now on to this super cute outfit! I found this adorable and motivational top, and my bright pink sports bra at target! If you are, “well endowed,” up top, I n-would suggest getting a smaller size! My go to leggings are this comfy cropped Nikes, and my shoes of course are hot pink Asics.

IMG_8262

So would I recommend you try out SoulCycle? Absolutely! Be prepared for an intense, fun-filled, full-body workout that will shake up how you see cycling!
