Ironed out

After a long March on Friday for the Armenian Genocide and a 3 day cruise ship to Ensenda, I went to work and it was not easy. I had bought this shirt when I was in New Orleans and I decided to wear it coming off the ship with my big floppy hat (not pictured) and my sunglasses, yes a little dramatic but I loved every minute of it! Looking at this photo, the entire look looks like it needs to be ironed out but after a long day I was in no mood of changing, ironing, and re-wearing this outfit, but I think it still looks good. What do you think?

Not Liking This Trend

Happy Friday! I decided to try this crop top sweater trend over the boyfriend dress shirt because it was on sale and it was a good deal but this look isn't for me, I'm sorry. I love how it looks on other people but for some reason I feel like on me it looked more like a shrunken sweater over an oversized shirt, am I wrong? I had decided to wear it to work but as you can see from my face that it wasn't a good idea. What do you guys think?

White and Neon


outfit of the day

white and neon

Neon yellow seems to be the new it color for spring but it has been my go to color for years. I think it is such a great statement color for simple outfits. I had found these shoes and I bought them without any hesitation, I just thought I could wear them with a white dress on the day of my rehearsal to add a little spark, a little fun (I still don't have that dress that I'm picturing in my mind). However, until that day I figured I would have to break them in so I wore them out and I loved how comfortable they were and how it brought together my entire outfit, I felt like I was channeling my inner chic side. White and Neon, I think it goes. What do you think? 

Sorry again for the little blog posts but please bare with me for these next few weeks. The wedding is only 5 weeks away and I'm trying very hard to balance a full plate at work and a separate full plate at home. I will take any advice that you can give me so that I don't drive myself crazy.

An Unforgettable Trip to New Orleans

Ready to go at the airport! 
A young street brass band playing great jazz music. The music in the Jazz clubs especially on Frenchmen Street were beyond amazing, it was so beautiful and perfect. It taught me a new appreciation towards Jazz.
A Crawfish Boil at the fly, a local park that my cousin we ran into at the airport in LAX invited us too! Such a real New Orleans experience.

Taking in the sunset with a beer by the Mississippi River.


Jumping with joy on our way to Bywater or possibly in Bywater.

The colors and such a bicycle friendly city.

I couldn't stop taking pictures of the architecture, so pretty.

The hat festival. This is when the older ladies show off their Easter hats in a Easter hat parade. These hats and ladies were just something else. 

Our favorite bar and where people dressed very southern preppy, this was right after Easter Mass. Those hats and those mint julips!

Easter Parade Number 2. This woman named Chris Owens (I think) has been putting this together for years and it's very costume driven and they throw Mardi Gras beads and carrots. 

Beads everywhere! My personal instagram has a photo of all the beads we collected. This was before Easter Parade number 3, the Gay Parade. 

The day I caught my cold was the perfect day for a swamp tour in the Bayou. The tour reminded us of the pirates of the caribbean ride at Disneyland, actually all of New Orleans felt like the French Quarter at the Disneyland, they did good.

I saw one and I tried one. For those who can't tell, it's an alligator. 


New Orleans...You are something totally different. When I first landed with my sister we got in pretty late and pretty hungry so we checked in and went around town looking for food. Now, this was the night that got me worried about me and if we booked the trip for too long, Bourbon street was disgusting and it was close to impossible to find a place to eat but by Friday morning I had changed my mind. We woke up and had beignets at cafe de monde, WOW, amazing! Worth the wait! Right after, we grabbed our first drink (you can drink on the streets there) and we didn't stop until Monday. We went to a crawfish boil at the park, we went to Bywater, Magazine st, Carousel bar, and restaurant after restaurant, the food is AMAZING! I think I gained weight but thank goodness for all that walking. The city has so much color and life that I was worried about how I would see Los Angeles when I returned, it's definitely not the same. If you are planning on going out there, I recommend eating the food and going during Easter. It is an experience to see and discover, totally worth a trip.

And I'm off to New Orleans! Today I sent out the majority of my wedding invitations and I will send out the rest when I get back from my sister trip. The days are getting closer and I am so nervous that I forgot something and I won't know until the day of, this is what happens when you are a last minute planner. Anyway, I had some errands to run around town and when I was asked to join for dinner, luckily I had heels in the car and within seconds my boring black and white outfit fit perfectly for an evening out with friends. Key Lesson... Always keep a pair of heels in the car. 

Hopefully I get to blog from New Orleans, fingers crossed!

Spring Break

Hello Friends! I wanted to start off by apologizing for not blogging for almost an entire week, I am so sorry. Since my work is on spring break, I decided to tackle most of my wedding stuff so that I won't be as stressed once I work starts and once I get back from New Orleans. I had these photos sitting in my computer from this past weekend when I took my parents to Malibu, this was taken behind the Urban Outfitters near where my fiancĂ© proposed actually. This area has cute little picnic tables, a campfire, a tent, and a hammock to lay in, such a cute little hidden area.
