I had the honor of listening to the amazing Drew Barrymore at Lucky FABB a few weeks back and I’m very excited to share it with you. After meeting Drew and seeing her in person, it’s safe to say that almost every girl in the room left with a girl crush. She has a way of making everyone feel special. In fact, she even made us feel as though we were the cool ones, as bloggers now have the power. Imagine that..
She launched her beauty line, Flower Beauty, which I posted on before. She spoke to Lucky Magazine’s Editor In Chief on life, babies, motherhood, beauty and how she manages to do it all. That lovable character that we all adore in the movies is exactly who she is in real life. Watch for yourself. Not to mention, cute outfit! Drew, we just love you…
I hope you enjoy! XXX, SWP

Sometimes living on the edge is exactly what we need. Riding on the back of motorcycles, booking a flight the night before your trip and skinny dipping with your friends at midnight. If that’s not exactly what’s happening for you every weekend, dressing like it might give you the edge you’ve always wanted and a little distressed denim can help. Feel tough and get that ‘insta-cool’ vibe by adding a little rips and wear to your wardrobe. There are also tons of DIYs for distressed denim as well. The Denim Blog shares 5 great ones here.
The new “LBD” for spring: the little white dress. It’s chic, summer-y, and easily dressed up or down. Whether you create a hippie chic look with beach waved hair and simple jewelry or a dressed up look with heels and a black leather dress, an embroidered midi white dress is great for warm weather days. One thing to keep in mind – watch when you’re eating as white can stain very quickly. (Eek, I’ve done it one too many times). Agadir Argan Oil spray can easily be brought with you on the road and will make your hair shine and also smell divine. It’s super cheap from Target! Add a pop red lip and a bright red/orange polish to complete the look. Happy Saturday all! XO

Grab those boyfriend jeans, a pair of booties and cute blazer – the boyfriend is back. I forgot how great they were and how much I love the boyfriend style until I received my new jeans!
A month ago, I attended the NYDJ’s preview (I try to make it every season) and got a sneak peek of their Spring/Summer 2013 styles. Their collection ranged from floral prints, to mint jeans and amazing workwear pants, but I ended up walking away with a pair of boyfriend jeans. Today I’m wearing them with a fun tan bootie from Charles Jourdan, a polka dot blazer from Nordstrom Rack and and a top by All Saints. NYDJ is also doing some amazing tops this season that I’m loving. If you missed last year’s post, you can check it out here.
If you haven’t already, grab yourself a great pair of boyfriend jeans for the season. They’re lovely for the weekend and definitely appropriate for work paired with a heel and blazer.
There’s a new hat designer in town and she’s making Los Angeles very, very proud. Jenessa Leone is known for taking inspiration from the bygone era, and her designs are inspired from a time when women’s innate confidence was conveyed through the dichotomy between sharp, menswear inspired tailoring and exaggerated feminine beauty. It’s only been a year but when you have something good, you know it’s going to be around for a while, which is why Janessa’s designs are a purchase that you’ll want to invest in. I’m obsessed! The menswear inspired designers’ sophmore collection, Shadows, consists of 8 styles for you to enjoy and are meant to be passed on for generations to come.
My love affair for jumpers started a long time ago. I’m pretty sure I own at least 4 black jumpers – no joke – and yes, of course, I want more in bright colors, florals and jeans. I went to get dressed yesterday for a BBQ and realized A) I need more *cute and comfortable shoes for day and B) jumpers are still AMAZIN; great for day or night.
It’s always a struggle for me to look cute during the daytime. These outfits embody ‘casual cool’ for any weekend outing. I’ve been eyeing the floral jumper from Top Shop since their media shopping preview – it’s EVERYTHING. I’m sure you may have seen it styled on some of the celebrities by now. The white boots that I’ve paired with it are my next obsession. I love whites and creams for because they’re neutral, soft and are a great alternative to black, which I get so sick of as I lived in New York for years. Whites and creams lend a softer, overall feel. I found these bad boys at Nasty Gal. Add a touch of makeup for an natural beauty look for day and a chic colorful (but not too bright) bag. I chose a mint handbag (perfect for Spring trends) from DSW. There are tons of great options for only $39.95
Then of course there is the amazing jean Jumper! The jean on jean look is HUGE right now. The best thing about this piece is you don’t have to think about what you’re wearing. Throw it on with a heel, bootie or flat and you already look amazing. A popped lip, maybe a few accessories and you’re ready-to-go. This jean jumper is from ASOS, just a little over $100. You’ve probably seen the Rag & Bone floral bomber this season which to me is a MUST HAVE if you can afford it. I’ll be searching for other options as well as I know most can’t. Literally, this jacket makes any outfit ‘super cool,’ as most Rag & Bone pieces do. Super Maje.
Saturdays are my FAVORITE day of the week. Jump into your next weekend with a cute jumper and I promise you’ll love the ease, comfort and get tons of compliments. XOXO, SWP

A lot of women are intimidated by bright colors. Trust me, I get it. But there’s no reason you shouldn’t partake in the bright color fun with at least your accessories. Adding a pop of color with your clutch, handbag or shoe is one of the easiest ways to brighten up your look.
How to: keep it neutral with the rest of your look. If you’re going to add two different brights to your look, make sure they flow together. Play it safe with blacks, whites and neutral colors as you’re base if you’re not sure. I love neons, reds and pinks – make sure to keep the colors brights and bold. Pastels will not give you the desired look. Lastly, have fun with it! It’s a playful fun look and it’s a great way to show you don’t take yourself too seriously, either.

Lately I’ve been obssessed with Rachel Zoe. She’s always chic, boho and looking fabulous while being comfortable. I found a part of her super wide leg floral pants and Loehmanns and new I’d get a lot of use out of them, especially for Spring 2013. It’s all about FLORALS! I wanted to add pop of color for daytime while still keeping it casual, so I added my go-to jean jacket which I adore. (Another steal from Loehamanns) I have been wearing it with almost everything – definitely a MUST HAVE for any girl’s closet. I use mine for dressing down any dress or outfit that I want to make a little more casual for day or weekend wear.
We love Rachel Zoe- I’ll be back with more ways to style these fun pants soon. Have a great rest of your weekend. XOXO SWP
There is something charming about a short suit. It’s classy without being too stuffy and while they’re definitely ‘office appropriate’ they’re playful enough for a night out. Tory Burch, Jason Wu, Elie Saab were just a few of the designers who recognized this wearable yet stylish take on menswear for Spring. While you can keep it chic with a pair of heels, I also love a more casual, edgy take on the suit. Add a wedged bootie or chic hat and you’ll be sure to stand out, in the best possible way. Shop my picks below – I adore the floral suit – tres chic!
