Opus Hotel Vancouver

(All photos taken at Opus Hotel Vancouver)

I'm back from four nights, five days in Vancouver to share my adventure I had with three of my blogger buddies! I'm going to highlight the Opus Hotel in this post and save the second post for all the sights we saw. 

Nestled in Yaletown, the Opus Hotel is one to visit in Vancouver! Upon arrival, we were welcomed with glasses of champagne and upgraded to their beautiful Signature Suite. The decor was super chic with pink and black printed walls, pink pillows and a stunning bathtub with views of the city. As you can tell from the photos, we took full advantage of this Instagram worthy room. We happily indulged in old school candy like pop rocks and ring pops that were replenished daily, a fire place that kept us warm from the cold night air and a delicious breakfast via room service where the food was top notch. The best part was the hotel staff who were nothing short of accommodating! From housekeeping, to room service, to the front desk, I thank you for your kind hospitality. We will definitely be back!  

Stay tuned for Vancouver part two! Until then, enter this giveaway for your chance to win a $1350 gift card to Nordstrom.

On the Hunt

 (Top, Denim, Coat & Bag all from Zara)

On the hunt for...I'll be quite honest, for the rarest, coolest, Pokemon! I'm completely obsessed with the game and if you notice, so is everyone else. Vincent and I were literally searching before, during and after this shoot. Call us crazy, but it's true! Okay, okay, I wasn't just on the hunt for Pokemon. I also hunted down these Zara items and created this look for under $110. I paired the coat, top and bag with my favorite denim and heels. How's that for great finds? I may have one that game but Vincent definitely won the latter.

Lady in Red

Photography by Vincent Elejorde

Off the shoulder tops are definitely having a moment and I'm completely guilty of being immersed in this trend. There's a certain je ne sais quoi about it and I can only explain it best as major sex appeal. This particular top I'm wearing was a score for $25 at the Zara sale that I'm sure you know is happening right now. I've linked it above so if you're looking for something sexy in a fiery red color to stand out amongst the crowd, look no further. 

I started shooting with my good friend Vincent who I have to thank for inspiring me and bringing my outfits and photos to life. Let's just say he brought out "the feels" in me during this shoot in downtown Los Angeles. It's finally a step up from what I've been doing these past few years and I'm so excited to share this extra step I'm finally taking with my blog with you all. Stay tuned for many more awesome looks to come.

White Dress for Summer

Photography by Danny Estrada

I'm back with my second look in collaboration with Lulus and the perfect white dress for summer. My last look was definitely different, channeling my inner feminine side, while this one speaks to my bohemian spirit. I've always been a fan of maxi dresses in fact, I started my blog four years ago with the tagline, "Maxi lover." Some things will never change. Now that you've seen both looks, which one do you like best? Would love to know!

White Summer Dress

Today's post is in collaboration with LulusSince summer is here, we figured there's no better time to talk about little white dresses. I chose this flirty a-line, halter dress by JOA to channel my inner feminine side. Occasionally I bring her out and in doing so, I thought why not go all out with a pretty bouquet of flowers. I felt like a princess waiting for her prince charming. Nothing wrong with day dreaming every once in awhile, right?!

Stay tuned for part two of this collaboration where my love for bohemian style and maxi dresses comes into play.
