Resort & Redbook Magazine

Last weekend I had the amazing opportunity of having dinner at a Newport Coast resort.  I thought I'd try my new favorite printed tote as a bold statement paired with a simple black tee and white denim for a resort wear feel.

I am excited beyond belief to share that Redbook Magazine featured me along with other fashion bloggers wearing printed shorts for the August 2013 issue.   A few months ago they contacted me saying they like my blog and fashion, but they can't find any photos of me wearing printed shorts.  So guess what I did?  Of course I went out and hunted down a pair of printed shorts.  It was challenging to find bermuda length printed shorts, as I bought the one and only pair offered at

Here I am below on the right bottom corner:

Thank you to Beverly Like Hills for providing this photo AND for coming with me on the emergency shopping trip to find this amazing coral blazer to wear with the printed shorts. The caption says, "A straight, knee-length pair is very sleek in California."

Below is the original photo I sent Redbook.

  1. I LOVE how chic you look in your resort wear outfit and tote.

    And WOW about the Redbook issue! How fun is that?! (That photo and outfit are pretty fantastic too!) You're famous! ;)

  2. Can't wait to get my copy of Redbook next week! Love the outfits as always!

  3. You rock girl. Love that you are following your passion. From el scortcho.

  4. Thank you to Pear, RC, and Anon for your comments. I am very excited about this magazine opportunity. Hopefully there will be more opportunities like this one soon. I just got my printed version. It is so weird seeing myself in a major publication.

  5. Ooohhh!! I love seeing the shorts up-close. I thought they were polka dots, but I love this pattern even more!

    Congratulations on your inclusion on Redbook! I was just as excited as you, and I too ran out to purchase some printed shorts since I didn't have any either!


    1. So glad you stopped by, Cassie! I only had 7 days to run out and find the shorts, do the photos, and submit. You?

  6. Love the shorts with jacket! Congrats on the Redbook coverage!

    Also, I love the resort dinner outfit... it just exudes an elegant confidence.

    1. Thank you, Allison! It is quite exciting to be in a magazine.

  8. Whoot whoot! So happy for you - and I do love your print shorts - could you pop on over here and help me find a pair for myself please?

    Congrats sweetie

    1. Thanks Wendy, sorry I did not mean to ignore your question. I'd be happy to find you some printed shorts.
