Pop Art and a Polkadot Dress

Happy 2016 friends!  I started the year off with a BANG! with a visit to the Museum of Contemporary Art’s POP ART show. I’m in love with so many of the artists in the exhibit but I especially love the intense graphics all over the exterior of the building advertising the show.  Just look at the geometric red bars and the newly redesigned MCA font – perfection!

I felt right at home in my very graphic outfit of this polka-dot Carmakoma sweater dress (they are one of my favorite plus size brands) and black/white Rebecca Minkoff purse. I have been absolutely lusting after this plus size sweater dress for a year and it finally went on sale via Gwynnie Bee so I snatched it up.  Other reviewers complained that it was sack-like and see-through but neither of those things seem like downsides to me.  I love the tunic shape and bold print and I just paired it with leggings and a cami so it doesn’t matter if it’s sheer.

I’m still trying to grow my hair out as you can see, but it’s getting longer! I’m really looking forward to some fun styling this year once I get some overall length. 

My goals this year aren’t quite solidified yet, but I’m getting there. I hope to have up a post once I have some downtime in Los Angeles next week.

Springtime and Patterned Shorts

I am thrilled that it’s finally spring!  Well except that all my dogs are shedding – that isn’t so sweet.  But all the flowers and the warmer weather are just making me so happy right now.

My job has been so busy lately that I really haven’t had time to take some fun photos, but I really wanted to show you guys these amazing sweet shorts I recently purchased.  I think there’s nothing better than mixing patterns and when I came home and remembered I had this precious lace sweatshirt, I knew I had the perfect outfit.  I know this outfit is a little sweet for me – but there’s something about spring that just brings it out of me.

And what about these new creamy pearl glasses from SEE eyewear?  I am completely in love!
