Blue Crush

Cobalt blue is the most figure-flattering color in my opinion.  It's always been my favorite color to wear and I think it's generational for me...  I remember my Mawmaw and mom also preferring this color.  Whether I'm tan or pale as all get out (which is my current state) this shade of blue just really pops off and makes a statement. 

Because this dress is so bold in the color department, I felt like neutral accessories were key. My earrings were obviously a big statement, but sometimes you just gotta go big or go home!

Weekly Gorgeous Grams

Apparently girlfriend has been busy werkin' that Instagram feed this week.  I didn't realize how many photos I posted this past week until writing this post!  I also started up a SnapChat account, so go follow me: angelalanter. 

Since I have so many photos to discuss, let's jump right in! 

First up is the ever-so-popular morning time leg shot.  My typical morning consists of coffee and blogging, so that's why this style photo is so usual for me.  I did share my latest (and greatest!) breakfast obsession, avocado toast.  Holy YUM!  I love smashed avocado on whole wheat toast sprinkled with sea salt and fresher cracked pepper then topped with an over easy egg.  If you haven't tried this combo yet, you're seriously missing out.

How gorgeous is this sunset photo I snapped last week here in LA?  

"The heavens declare the glory of God, the skies proclaim the works of His hands." 

Psalm 19:1

I may have a plaid problem.  I can't ever seem to pass up a good plaid print, especially plaid flannels.  This gingham is the perfect example of said problem.

This, right here folks, is my favorite breakfast.  I crave this meal and sometimes get it for dinner because I love it so.  It's Jinky Cafe's green & white omelette with tater tots.  If you're ever in the LA area and have a hankerin' for some good breakfast, find yourself a Jinky's and order this.  You'll thank me with every bite you take.

On Friday I posted my "How to Give Yourself the Perfect Blowout at Home" video and you should absolutely check it out if you haven't already seen it.  I'm just giving you all my best tips on how to get a salon quality blowout at home. 

This jeans and tee combo is basically my everyday uniform.  If you haven't already noticed, I'm totally a jeans girl.  These Levi's 501's are among my favorite pairs in my closet.

Spring Stripes

Y'all probably recognize this adorable striped top from my NYC Fashion Haul Video...  I told ya that most of the pieces would make it over to the blog!  :) 

I'm really diggin' on stripes and patterns for Spring.  I really thought we'd see more patterns on the Oscar's red carpet on Sunday night, but instead there really was only solid colors.  While we're on the subject, who was your best dressed?  I pretty much died over JLO and Gwyneth Paltrow! 

Okay, okay...  Back to today's look.  Back to the stripes.  A lot of you ladies are probably so freaked out by horizontal stripes...  Don't be!  Yes, they can make you look a bit larger (and who wants that?  Not this girl!)  But worn right, they can be oh so cute.  What's "work right" you may ask?  Well, the thinner the stripe, the better.  Still self conscious?  Layer with an open cardigan or jacket to create some depth to your look.  Give it a try and you may be surprised how much you enjoy yourself in stripes!  This top is definitely a great example of how to wear horizontal stripes well.  Plus, have you seen the back detail?  To die for!
