Friday, May 1, 2015

In today's Friday Favorites, I'm going to reveal my top 5 clicked products this week and the five best sales this weekend! This might be a fun way to let you know what other readers are loving right now and where you should be shopping for summer staples! On the backend of my blog, I can see how many clicks my links are getting, and there are so many of you who are loving rompers right now - and I totally get it because I'm loving them too! See what you guys are loving this week in the image below!

(Hover and click on any item below to be brought to it's product page!)

1. Still going strong with almost 4,000 clicks - the SheInside tie dye cardigan from my festival inspired outfit post is by far the most popular link on my blog right now.

2. This Jetset Diaries romper is getting lots of love, and it hasn't even gotten an outfit post yet which means it's all you guys clicking from! For good reason, I've already worn it 3 times since I've bought it. The fabric is super soft and you can wear it with sandals or dress it up with wedges. Full outfit post coming soon with this one.

3. The fact that you love Keepsake's Night After Night Romper is no surprise here especially with all the summer brides out there. I already know how where I'm wearing it next - Baton Rouge's MPAC event!

4. The Rebecca Minkoff fringe crossbody was featured super early in April, but it's definitely still getting lots of attention from you guys. Fringe is here to stay guys!

5. My Yumi Kim Chelsea Maxi dress hasn't had it's own blog post yet either, but I knew it was going to be a huge hit when I saw the response it got on Instagram. You guys are loving this print. If the maxi is a little out of your price point - it's also available in a Yumi Kim t-shirt and Yumi Kim blouse.

Okay now for the sales!

The Spot That Changed My Skincare


Thursday, April 30, 2015

Last fall, a red spot appeared on my face right underneath my left eye that was followed by countless dermatologist and esthetician visits. Shortly after, my skincare routine changed completely. I normally don't get too serious in my blog posts, but I know that with this blog as a platform I can maybe help someone that could have the same issue arise. 

Initially, I brushed the spot off as a sensitivity spot from my Clarsonic, but after it became brighter and more prominent, I started to take it seriously. You always hear that "new spots" are the ones to be most worried about... Have you ever googled "red spot on face" - I did. (Cue panic attack) Not even 5 minutes after that Google search, I had booked a dermatologist appointment for the next day. The verdict from my doctor's appointment was this - I have lentigo. 

Read more about lentigo and my updated skincare routine in today's full post with Colorescience.

Cinco de Mayo Must-Haves


Wednesday, April 29, 2015

Only one week away from one of my favorite holidays of the year (the one that involves lots of margaritas and guacamole), so I have been looking for a festive Cinco de Mayo outfit! Turns out I'm not the only one, so Haute Off the Rack and I teamed up to share our Cinco de Mayo inspired outfit pieces with you today. And like many of our shoots where we get overly into holidays props, this one was no different!

See more of this shoot and get the details on my dress from Hand in Pocket!

RewardStyle - The Conference


Tuesday, April 28, 2015

If you follow @apinchoflovely on Instagram or are just on Instagram in general, you most likely noticed the presence of a popular hashtag this past weekend - #rStheCon - which referred to the rewardStyle conference for bloggers. Every year, the top 200 blog publishers are invited to the conference in Dallas to come together and discuss ways to improve the way we provide content to our audiences across our blogs and social media platforms. Here's a quick look at my weekend in photos! (And you might be seeing some changes on my end soon!)

All outfits below are available to shop on!

Left / Arrival in Dallas in my chambray pantsuit (Jordan likes to call it my grandma suit) and Soludos espadrilles. My Quilted Koala tote from this post was my super soft and roomy carry-on.

Right / We kicked off the weekend with a poolside party with Stuart Weitzman! Fruity cocktails and floral resortwear for all! Lots of catching up with my California girls - Carrie Bradshaw Lied and Pursuit of Shoes!

Left / I wore my Yumi Kim Chelsea Maxi dress to the Stuart Weitzman party - by far one of my favorite new printed dresses from the collection!

Right / Kathleen from Carrie Bradshaw Lied and Jenn from Haute Off the Rack were my roomies at The Joule Hotel for the weekend! The three of us took over The StylistLa's Instagram account on Saturday, but more on that in a second.

Left / Paired this Jetset Diaries romper with some fun Elaine Turner wedges for a day of speakers - these heels come out TOMORROW and I'll have an exclusive code for you to nab 20% off!

Right / Friday night, River Island hosted a lawn party for all the attendants. This photos was taken before the rain began and before we all had to make a run for it in the storm back to the hotel!

Left / Okay, so where did I wear my Jetset Diaries romper? To a terrace lunch hosted by Matches Fashion on the terrace level of The Joule Hotel.

Right / Have you ever seen more beautiful lunch boxes? We were greeted to our seats with a picnic lunch filled with yummy goodies!

Left / Friday morning, we broke off into classrooms for our learning sessions. We also met one-on-one with brands on how to better address the needs of our readers. I wore my Yumi Kim Happy Hour dress despite the rain!

Right / I sat in on classes about taking better photos, reading Google analytics and branding yourself through images. Here's a little snap from one class where I took lots of notes - gotta teach Jordan my Nikon now!

Left / The last night's event called for a very special dress. I picked the sparkly, sequin Parker dress to wear to's first birthday party!

Right / And where was the party? It was outside with a gorgeous view of the bridge and birthday fireworks - rewardStyle really pulled out all the stops to celebrate one of their most successful launches.

Left / I couldn't leave without getting my Tex Mex on! Haute Off the Rack, Life with Emily and I put down our Gigi New York phone wallets (just for a second) to indulge in some grub from Mi Cocina.

Right / Probably the worst part of going out of town - unpacking. I was actually pretty motivated to unpack this time however to get out these lovely things including Front Roe by Louise Roe, my new Fujji Instax camera and my mini leather notebook.

Thank you rewardStyle for such a fantastic weekend and an invitation to attend this year's conference. I can't wait to put my new knowledge to good use, and I'm super excited about some new projects soon to come!
