It is officially Spring! Bring on all my favorite bright colors. Granted most of the Winter felt like Spring in California, I am happy that I can officially wear bright colors without anyone looking at me weird. I finally decided that it was time to go shopping for some new pants. Seeing as how all my other pairs now hang off of me. So I went to Old Navy to check out their ankle pants. I have never been able to wear Old Navy’s pants because they never fit me right before I started bootcamp. Well much to my surprise, they fit and I went down 2 whole sizes from where I was before.

Thrilled doesn’t even describe my excitement right now. I found these black and white pants immediate and knew I could pair them with a million things. I borrowed this yellow jacket from my mom and paired it with some new wedges from Target. I always borrow this jacket from my mom. It is one of my favorites and every time I go to my parents house, I feel like I wear it with something. Another awesome part about this outfit is the shoes. Dolce Vita is one of my favorite shoe brands and I am so excited that they partnered with Target for a line of shoes. They are comfortable and adorable. They go with everything. Jeans, work pants, dresses and skirts. Literally, everything! Want to see how I styled some other colored pants? Head here to see some.

Hope you all have a wonderful Tuesday! God bless!

So I have to say, I am absolutely in love with this bag from Olivia + Joy! I got it a couple of years ago and have been in love with their company ever since! I took it to New York with me because I liked that it had a cross body strap and zipped up! It is super practical and very trendy! I decided to share my purse essentials with you that I take EVERYWHERE with me! I don’t leave the house without everything in this photo!

Wallet: I absolutely love this wallet! Its pink and signature Coach print! Too cute for words!

Business Card Holder: How adorable is this one? I’m obsessed with Kate Spade and when I saw this business card holder on her website I had to order it!

Glasses Case: So if you where glasses, I’m sure you already know that leaving your house without your glasses case is a huge mistake! I can’t tell you how many times I need to take my glasses off and am so happy that my case is ready when I need it!

Mentos: Obviously breathe mints are essential! I have an awful habit of eating them like candy however whenever I am nervous or just craving mint flavor, these are perfect!

Pen: I received this Poppin pen at LuckyFABB in NYC and LOVE IT! It is so fun and bright colored which is easy to find in my purse!

Lip Gloss and Lipstick: Absolutely love these Jane Iredale lip colors they are the perfect way to jazz up your face after a long day at work, so I always have them with me!

Mascara: I wear mascara everyday however, sometimes if I am heading out to dinner right after work I always feel better adding a little bit more! This Maybelline mascara is the best I have found and trust me, I have tried quite a few!

Foundation: One thing I hate is when I have had a stressful day and somehow in the mix I have rubbed off all my foundation! Therefore I have learned to carry it with me so right before a big meeting, or a dinner date I can reapply what I have rubbed off! I highly recommend every woman carry a compact with them. If nothing else you can always use the mirror for getting things out of your eye, which I am constantly doing.

Cosmetic Bag: Now I really don’t like having all this stuff loose in my purse, because it takes forever to find anything! So I carry all my makeup I this bag and it is easy to find and get to fast.  Lets not forget cute the bag itself is!

So I’m pretty sure every little girl dreams about having lunch with Barbie.  Well while in NYC I got to do just that! Within minutes of walking into the lunch all of us were instantly sharing stories about when we used to play with Barbie’s.  Definitely was an experience I’ll never forget! It was so wonderful hearing from Michelle, Chief of Staff, about all the exciting things Barbie is involved in.  We even had a conversation about all the controversy surrounding Barbie.  When I was a kid I never felt pressured to look like Barbie, I knew I would never be blonde, unless I dyed my hair, I’d never have blue eyes, unless I got fake contacts and I’d definitely never stop eating enough to have that tiny little waist, which is humanly impossible.  However I still loved to dream up adventures and create stories of where Barbie and Ken would go.  I feel like all this pressure to look like Barbie is ridiculous! My parents raised my sister and I to stand on our own two feet and be who we want to be, I adored playing with Barbie because she had so many different accomplishments, not because I wanted to look like her.
It was so incredible to sit at our tables with a bunch of older Barbie’s and to see everything this icon has stood for.  Truly an opportunity I am beyond grateful for! Thank you Lucky Magazine and thank you Barbie!
