Today's Look: is all about enjoying a beautiful spring day. I started the outfit by thinking of what to wear around town on a sunny, breezy day and the transition from festival wear to street style. Now that Coachella is over, city slickers and suburbanites must go back to their day-to-day lives, leaving their boho-decked out selves behind. I personally love both festival and street style, so I decided to make a look that transforms into each, wearing a bright pink crop-top and black, shredded cut-offs and styling them a little differently. For the festival look, I wore a floral headband that I made and it was meant to be because it matched this beautiful Ali & Kris pullover to a T. For the street style, I put on the pullover and removed the floral crown. Simple yet effective changes transform the look. Of course, I had to add some edginess by wearing black, cut-out ankle boots and black galaxy nails. Now, one of my personal styling philosophies is that a girl's phone should always be as fabulously dressed as she is. For the perfect finishing touch, I turned my iPhone into a fashion accessory with a beautiful "Mini Dot Pink" case by Clique Fashion Case & Skin Boutique. Hope you all had a wonderful Easter! Xoxo, Shelly

Today's Look: is all about a flirty, dotted chevron shift dress made of micro-satin. Spring is definitely the season to wear fun dresses that flow, swirl, and attract. This little gem is the perfect spring staple. To complement the black polka-dotted, chevron print, I styled the dress with a black belt that has sparkly crystal embellishments. The shoes are my one indulgent purchase for this photo shoot; how can a girl resist block heel sandals with ankle straps? Literally impossible! Besides feminine, flirty dresses and strappy sandals, spring is represented to me by two types of flowers--tulips and daffodils. If you look carefully, you can see some of them peeking out in the background. I couldn't resist showing off how beautiful the neighborhood looks in my recent photoshoots. I hope you’re loving the season whatever it may be for you right now :) Xoxo, Shelly

Fashion Tip: Adding a thin waist-belt to a simple shift dress not only adds a personal touch, but it also compliments the feminine figure.

Today's Look: is still about Coachella dreamin’. The headlines are stating that Beyoncé and Gwen Stefani graced the stages at Coachella as a special surprise for attendees. Well, if I can’t be there, at least I can still dress up and have fun like I'm at the music festival. To begin, I chose a tribal patterned, swing crop top that matched my white-washed orange shorts. Adding a little more of a 1970's feel, I wore woven stacked friendship bracelets and a crocheted purse. To stay protected from the sun, I wore a wide-brimmed hat and colorful, mirrored sunglasses featuring shades of orange and pink. The gladiator sandals by Lucky Brand created a perfect last boho detail. Obviously, I've been a little obsessed with Coachella and all the fashion trends that are created at the two weekend event--next year, I'm hoping to get a group together and go crazy :) I better start saving up now... Xoxo, Shelly

Fashion Tip: On a sunny, warm day, a black, wide-brim hat not only adds style to an outfit, but also provides protection from the sun--perfect for long days out at festivals.

Today's Look: is festival chic, inspired by one of my style icons Vanessa Hudgens, and fun for the hot summer days approaching. To get this look, I started with the tribal jacquard cage-back crop top in black, beige, and taupe and denim cut-offs. I just had to add a floral headband, cut-out ankle boots, and a crocheted vest. Adding the perfect finishing touches, I accessorized with infinity earrings, a studded leather bracelet and belt, and tarnished metal rings. To get an idea of what bloggers go through, I have a story for you, my loyal readers. For this shoot in particular, I knew I wanted lush green trees, mother earth vibes, and of course, beautiful lighting. My photographer and I set out searching for a great spot. We had to hike through a field, down a steep slope, and through (not past but through) numerous shrubs to get to this location--I saw the logs from the highway and thought it would be an awesome setting. Although the area looked stunning in the pictures, during the photo shoot I felt like I was under attack; I had to ward off ants, bees, rodents (at least I think I heard a few scurry away in the bushes), and scratchy branches. Luckily, we survived the wilderness and got some great pictures which made it worth the work. When I got a chance to look at the photos that night, there was a spot on the back of my top in one of the photos. I zoomed in and it was a ginormous bee just hanging out, chilling on my back! I'm very allergic to bees and very thankful I wasn't aware of its presence and that it didn't sting me. Goodness...the things we bloggers go through for that perfect shot. Anyway, that's my dramatic story. haha Hope you're all having a wonderful week. Xoxo, Shelly
