Quick Getaway

Photo courtesy of Lauren Conrad

It's memorial day weekend and time for a quick getaway!
If you are anything like me, you need others to make you a packing list or you will leave almost everything at home and not realize until you get to your destination.
The basics to pack for a weekend getaway are clothes, accessories, and makeup!
I love reading about quick getaway trips and came across a very useful article from Lauren Conrad just in time for my small 3 day trip to Palm Springs, CA.

Make sure you always pack with you:

- Sunglasses
- Big floppy hat
- Camera
- A really good book
- Cute sandals
- Swimsuits (try the new neon trend)
- Aloe Vera (after you get sunburned)
- iPod, iPhone, iPad

I will be out of town for the next 3 days and will be back soon with some new posts!
In the meantime, I will be checking my blog and would love to hear from you!

Are you planning a weekend getaway? If yes, where are you going?

Be safe and have fun!

Inspiration: LF Stores Look book

 With Memorial Day weekend coming up, I couldn't have came across a more PERFECT look book!
Who wouldn't want to enjoy their 3-day weekend on a boat in AMAZING clothes!
Neon colors are still  my current obsession.
I think ankle boots looks great with anything and everything.
Throw on a pair of high waisted shorts with a cropped top and you are ready to enjoy the sun!

ThreadSence: Summer Goddess

 Photos courtesy of Viva Luxury

 I've been looking for the perfect summer look book to inspire me to add more items to my closet.
I came across this ThreadSence Summer look book that officially launches on Monday, May 21. It's entitled "Kiss the Sky: Desires of a Modern Day Goddess", and I want everything in this collection.
It includes the perfect maxi dress, colored denim, LBD, and pop colored jewelry.

I will definitely be revisiting the site on Monday when the collection launches. Will you?
By the way, I completely gave my blog a whole new look.
New sidebar titles, icons and TITLE font.
What do you think?! I'm dying to know!

Photo Diary: Maxi Skirt Love

I am in love with my new FABULOUS find from Forever 21!
This floppy hat goes with about everything and adds a bohemian look to every outfit.
I can't get enough!

I took these pictures over the weekend and haven't gotten the chance to share them.
Maxi skirts are still in season and bigger than ever.
What's there not to love!  + P.S. the slit makes it more feminine.

I am very excited as this Monday is my birthday.
I turn the big 2 4 (or maybe that's the big 2 5 ).

I also, definitely, need a new camera, to take FAB outfit posts.
If you have ONE and you love it, please let me know what you recommend!

Hope everyone had a FABULOUS Thursday!

Photo Diary: Denim on Denim

Summer time is here!
Can't wait to spend time at the beach and wear dresses, shorts, sandals, and so much more.
Recently, I've been posting a lot about denim and how it has become a BASIC staple item that every girl should have in her closet.
..which also led me to this post because I thought it was a perfect way to showcase one of the many ways to wear the denim on denim trend.
Plus, the best part? It adds a chic FAB & COOL look to any outfit.

I would love to know what you think of the denim on denim trend?
Would you rock it?
Please share!
(the best part of blogging is interacting with AMAZING souls who inspire me everyday) 

Denim Shirt & Jeans: Guess
Sandals: Aldo
Necklace & Hat: Forever 21
Leopard Print Belt: Target
Watch: Michael Kors

If you have Instagram & Twitter follow me: @StarStuddedLil (for both)

Have a wonderful work week lovelies!

Inspiration: #MBFWA Handbags

 Photos courtesy of Honesty WTF, 1, 2

Street style shots from Australian Fashion Week.
Handbags, clutches, pop colors, and more.
 I love every single one of these bags spotted at #MBFWA.

Recently, I have been obsessing over handbags A LOT. (maybe because I need a new one)
I have had my EYE on this Alexander Wang Rocco Duffel bag for a VERY VERY long time.
Although I am still on the lookout for the perfect handbag, I keep coming back to this.

What is your new favorite MUST HAVE handbag?
It can be a CLASSIC or a must have NEON one for the season.
Feel free to share because I am all out of ideas!
Excited to read about all of the handbags you LOVE!
