Picnic and Podcasts in the Park

Every Thursday I have been going to The Grove for ‘Picnic and Podcasts in the Park’. It was a weekly event for the month which featured live podcasts from Dear Media. The four events featured The Skinny Confidential Him & Her, As Seen Online with Jilly Hendrix, That’s so Retrograde and Work Party.

I had really only heard of two of the four but I enjoyed it so I RSVP’d to go after work every week. I honestly love listening to podcasts so this was right up my alley! If you know anything about Dear Media you know it is run by Michael Bosstick who is the Him in The Skinny Confidential Him & Her Podcast. It was so exciting getting to meet them both after their live recording and I knew the rest of the podcasts would be great because they are both so creative and business savvy.

There was complimentary drinks, candy, macaroons and sometimes goodie bags! It was just a fun experience and I wanted to write about it because it was one of the fun things I got to do while in LA that not everyone gets to attend. I cannot wait to listen to more episodes and see how the company grows.

Destination : Vacation with PrettyLittleThing

California has been the perfect vacation destination! Nothing like enjoying a day by the Venice Beach, am I right?! The first thing I do when I get ready for a fun vaca? Plan out my outfit! And somewhere where there is a beach and a pool you have to have the perfect swimsuit! Recently I’ve been obsessing over the color nude! A cute suit like this is perfect for vacation to any destination because it will be perfect with any background for cute pictures.

I always like to wear something cute to cover up with and this top can be worn at the beach, at the pool, or even out for dinner. Pieces like this are ESSENTIAL for vacation since you don’t want to overpack but you also want to have cute pieces.

 

 

What’s your favorite thing to do on vacation?

I also wanted to do a special feature on these killer shoes! Nothing says summer like Espadrilles! Always my favorite for a summer night or day out!

All pieces are from PrettyLittleThing

Denim Shorts Guide

Not all denim is made equal! There are different ways to style your favorite shorts and I am showing off a few of my current favorites from my closet. I linked a few other pairs as well so check out those and lets get on with it!

Affordable

Some of my favorite denim shorts are the ones I buy from places like Forever 21 or H&M. While they may not last more than a year or two, it’s okay because you out grow them sometimes and trends come and go! Places like Charlotte Ruse and Agaci also have some great pairs and their denim always follows trends like frayed edges and really great basics.

  

 

Comfy

Some of my favorite comfy denim is from Articles of Society and American Eagle. Definitely two different brands but I found them both to be super comfortable and easy to wear! What’s your favorite comfy denim brand?

  

Going Out

Some of my favorite denim is the ones that you can wear out. Not just on a summer day to the pool but some that you can wear out with a cute blouse or some wedges and a scarf in your hair. Denim like this is one of my favorite pieces because it really ties an outfit together.

  

Splurge

Every one in a while you have to make yourself feel better and spend some money on yourself. A piece that you like and you know will wear over and over it always worth it for months to come. If you are like me and live somewhere hot like Texas, you will definitely get good use out of a few of these pairs!
