Mani Monday – Happy Edition

My son and I visited The Happy Place in downtown Los Angeles this past weekend.  (To see highlights check out my Instagram stories.).  I had my emoji nail art done a couple of days before and each time I looked at it it made me smile.  A little extra smiling and happy is always a good thing.

The manicure and nail art are by Olive & June.  The color is “Picture Perfect” by Essie Gel Couture.

Blue and Yellow Polka Dot Blouse

Welcome to the Hotel Californian

“You can check out anytime you like, but you can never leave.”  Well I would never want to leave the beautiful Hotel Californian.  My husband and I checked out this new hotel when we had a quick getaway to Santa Barbara to celebrate 10 year anniversary.  It is gorgeous.  They just had their grand opening party last night.    I still can’t get over all the changes to lower State Street since I was in college at UCSB only a few years ago.  Back then there was very little going on lower State Street except a few dive bars. This is the latest addition.  I love all the black and white tile.

Easy Stripes

Shacket?  Jirt?  Either way, I love the stripes on this shirt/jacket.  I styled it with even more stripes with a striped long sleeved tee and striped clutch.  There are lots of different tying or open options and I love the fabric.

There are several new arrivals I have my eye on from J. Crew including this bag, these fun sandals, this scalloped blazer, and this striped tunic.

Mama’s Got a Brand New Bag

For my recent Spring Break in Washington, DC,  I splurged on a new cross body.    The Clare V. gosee is the perfect travel bag.  It manages to be light and streamlined yet it holds a ton!  In fact, I have been back for a week and I am still using it daily.  It is giving my totes a run for their money.  The strap is removable so you can use it as a clutch in the evening.

Speaking of new bags,  here are a few of my picks from Shopbop.  They are having a site wide sale of 25-30% off using the code EVENT18.   The sale ends on April 14th.  It’s the perfect time to scoop up a great bag.

Mani Monday – Pink Triangle Edition

I’ve got sunshine at (and on) my fingertips.  I am ready for sandals and spring weather after returning from the chilly east coast.  My son and I visited Washington, DC for spring break.  We had a blast, but were definitely bundled up and did not see the sun during our stay.  We did see cherry blossoms and they were beautiful.  I brought a little pink back in the form of triangles on my sunny yellow mani.  I love pink and yellow together.  This yellow color is one of my favorites and was included in my first Mani post just over two years ago (see here).

The manicure and nail art are by Olive & June.  The color is “Sun Washed” by CND Vinylux.

Items featured in the photos include:

Clare V Tote
