Today’s outfit is showing how you can wear red and navy together and not look like you’re celebrating the 4th of July ;). It’s such a good color combo but I think a lot of people tend to not pair their navy and red pieces together, which is silly because they go together so well!

I’m a fan of red because it makes me feel powerful and sexy even when it’s not a super sexy outfit. When I wear a red top, a red dress, red heels, have a red lip on etc. I feel like I can literally do anything and that’s a pretty great feeling :)!

Happy Friday Chic Readers!! Tonight I’m sharing the outfit that I wore to our good friend’s wedding this past weekend in Solvang. They got married at the Old Mission Santa Ines and then their reception was at a gorgeous winery!!

There was a beautiful sunset followed by an even more beautiful evening filled with dancing under a full moon in perfect outdoor weather. It was a wonderful & very fun wedding weekend that we got to spend with lots of our college friends.

The gorgeous wooden doors of the Church were too good not to have a mini photo shoot in front of ;) (cue all the girls taking photos in front of the doors as the guys hung off to the side talking….so typical!).

I love the deep navy color, pleats and style of this gorgeous chiffon dress by Leifsdottir from Anthropologie.

This weekend I am so excited to be hanging out with my best girlfriends since one of them will be up here visiting from LA! We’ll be exploring San Francisco, eating a LOT and probably walking a ton. Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!

xoxo “Cheers to the freakin’ weekend” Sera

Fall Magic



Dress: Alice and Olivia

Headpiece: Nordstrom (similar here)

Wedges: Aldo

Lips: MAC 

Photos by: Brittany Bowen 

Happy first day of fall Chic Readers! Can you believe fall is officially here?!

On this ‘Inspired Wednesday’ I’m sharing some special pictures from a recent photoshoot that the super talented Brittany Bowen and I collaborated on! She’s an amazing photographer (obviously, see the pics above!).

This Alice and Olivia yellow dress is just too gorgeous not to twirl around in during golden hour, so twirl I did! The sunset shots are dreamy & ethereal which I love so much, but my favorite photos are the bottom 3.

Brittany is extremely creative and a genius when it comes to creative photography which is so fun to be a part of! I think we (but mainly she) created something simply magical with these last 2 photos :). Hope you like them!

And I’ll leave you with an inspiring quote:

To transition into fall when warm weather is still around simply throw on a cardigan or light jacket for when you’re at work (and they’re pumping the AC) or actually for any place that you go into that has AC blasting (mall, grocery stores etc.).

You’ll need something, a light jacket/cardigan/sweater, to keep you warm and you’ll slowly start the fall fashion transition process so you’ll technically be ready for it whenever it actually decides to grace us with it’s presence :).

I basically don’t even go anywhere without a light jacket of some sorts, even in the summer, because I get cold very easily and would rather be prepared and have something to throw over my shoulders than be cold.

Speaking of cold, these cooler tone colors are so appropriate for summer and September/October here. I love the gray and blue combination and added a little bit of texture with this silvery gray lace tank that I got years ago from F21.

Hope you all had a lovely weekend!!

xoxo “Cardigan lover” Sera :)

Hiii Chic Readers! Hope your weeks are going wonderfully :)!

I don’t know about you but I’m ready to bust out my fall boots, sweaters and coats. With that being said, I still kind of don’t want to let go of the warm sunshine and beautiful 75-80 degree summer days.

I’m over the extremely hot days (think 90-100 degrees) we’ve been having recently here in California but the most perfect summer days are the ones I find hard to let go of…

So I’m still rocking my summer dresses and probably will be until October officially hits! To be fair our “fall” in California totally allows for this weather wise!

Are you ready for autumn & fall to officially be here already?

Happy Week-ending Chic Readers! Get it? Still the weekend but it’s coming to a close already ;). #punlover

I first saw this dress online and was obsessed!! Literally I loved everything about it, especially the color. So I knew I needed to find it and try it on in person since my usual go-to store for ordering online, Nordstrom, sadly did not order it for their spring/summer buy.

After a brunch in SF with some great girlfriends we visited the Alice and Olivia store in Pac Heights and there was one in my size left! Totally meant to be!

Finding a yellow dress that you love is very hard to do so I knew right when I put it on and it fit great that this yellow beauty would be coming home with me :)!

I wore it for the first time to a good friend’s wedding in Malibu last weekend and thought it was very appropriate for their venue which was Malibu Rocky Oaks (super gorgeous!). If you’re interested/intrigued about getting married on a helipad one day then check it out here!
