I feel so happy when I wear color. It’s so true that what you wear can really reflect your mood/energy! I’ve got to say that this is definitely one of my top favorite chic (but casual!) Sazan looks. I’ve been obsazzed with wearing orange all spring long and I don’t know if it’s because I feel like I look tanner in it or if it’s because I want to explore a new color for a change. Whatever it is, I can’t get enough! I really love this layered-looking Dex sweater. It’s super comfy and cute to tuck in or out of the skirt for a relaxed approach.
Okay so this skirt. Confession: I haven’t worn a denim mini skirt since I was in 7th grade. I’m pretty sure my legs were hairy every time (what! my mom didn’t let me shave!) Anyways! The 90’s are back and a-line denim skirts are sitting front row on the trend-wagon. Another trend? Gladiator sandals. I can’t stop and won’t stop rockin’ the gladiator shoe steez – like everyone should have a pair of cute studded ones.
Happy Monday! Just another boho-chic day in the neighborhood! 😉 This cute dress was sent to me from the Kardashian Kollection and it’s so vibrant (and fun!). Printed dresses are great to layer up! I decided to layer mine with an over-sized denim vest and pair it with somegladiator sandals. Who said dresses have to be worn all fancy and stuff? I love that this dress isn’t super tight – a loose fit is sometimes the way to go. Notice the accessories and shoes also compliment/edge it up! Ironically, I still feel very feminine and classy.
Have a stylish rest of the day! I’m heading to Dallas tomorrow for a week! Woooo. I’m going there for the Reward Style blogger conference and I can hardly wait!Better start packing… #procrastinationprobs
All fashion and Easter eggs aside, I stumbled across this video today and felt it in my heart to share. It really sums up the true meaning of Easter Sunday, and the powerful reasons why we celebrate. I hope you’ll also feel inspired to share with loved ones. May God bless you ALL on this glorious day for He is Risen!
If only you knew how hot it felt outside when I was in the desert last weekend. You would think naturally I can handle the heat (it’s because I’m middle-eastern!) but I was dying inside. Nonetheless it was worth it because I got to experience a taste of Palm Springs during Coachella weekend (and get a little tan while I was at it!). Palm Springs is one tough cookie, but thank God this romper was keeping me alive and cool (for the most part). The palm tree details and bright green and orange color make this Coachella OOTD fun and vibrant. I always feel like I hit the jackpot when I find a matching color bag like this one. Ya’ll know I’m not a big accessories/jewelry gal but it’s Coachella!, so I spruced up my outfit a bit with a cute floppy hat and gypsy necklace.
My day trip to Coachella was mostly for the experience and events/parties that were happening. I didn’t actually get a chance to check out the festival but it’s okay because I was a happy gal getting to sit poolside all day and catch up with blogger friends at the Marc Jacobs’ and Lacoste’s pool parties. So fun! It was also my ‘cheat day’ so obviously french fries were a must. And fortunately, the drive home wasn’t so bad thanks to the pretty scenic view.
Where to next? I’m heading back to Dallas early next week (yay!!) for the Reward Style Conference. Can’t wait to share that travel diary + all the outfits I have planned. Woo!
P.S Don’t forget my event at Eva Mendes pop-up shop at Beverly Center mall is tomorrow! Wooo! I hope some of you can come out – I would love to meet you! Details..
Another trend blossoming up this season: Pastels. Yep, and with Easter right around the corner, what’s not to love about milky pinks, purples, greens and yellows? Today I’m getting in the spirit with this light pink tank and white denim skinnes- not to mention this flowery kimono – it really puts the exclamation mark on this springtastic look. I think pastel colors are HOT and here to stay all season long (and summer too!). If you’re daring enough you can even try this trend by mixing two of your favorite pastel-y shades together. Color-block chic!
P.S Hope you’ll make it to my Eva Mendes pop-up event this Saturday! Details here..

When I’m planning a fun day trip, I like to keep things comfortable but cute for pics! 😉 I decided to go with this super adorable/comfy two piece setfrom Salsit. I recently discovered the brand and instantly fell in love. They have so many unqiue (and affordable!) pieces that will make you want to come back for more! I’m obsazzzed. For a casual approach I wore it with a denim jacket andbooties, but I can also see myself pairing this set with heels and a cute clutch for night.
Ojai is such a peaceful and spiritual place to have a getaway if you’re in Cali and need one! I started the day at a really cute french cafe called Marche Gourmet Delicatessan – seriously their macaroons were some of the best I’ve ever had. So good! Then I explored Ojai’s vast orange blossom trees and found myself getting lost in the beauty of nature (minus the part where I almost got stung by a bee!) While I was in Ojai, I also found some time to check out their cute little shops (of course) and I found the cutest artistic walkway outside of one that had so many inspiring words on it. It was a beautiful reminder to stop and appreciate the moment! I ended my day at Meditation Mount – when in Ojai, it’s a must. You don’t want to miss the ‘pink moment’ that happens in the sky at sunset. It’s such an amazing sight to see and a great place to meditate and feel the spiritual loveeee. I seriously wanted to stay up there forever.
My next #SazanTravels diary will be about my Coachella trip, so stay tuned for that later on this week! P.S I’m hosting a shopping event in LA this Saturday, details here if you want to come!

If you’re noticing a flashblack to the eighties than you ‘guessed’ it. GUESS is bringing the 80’s back with the launch of their 80’s inspired “throwback” collection called GUESS Originals which features these ahh-mazing high-waisted cropped jeans with their classic GUESS logo on the back pocket. The logo was the first thing that caught my eye. It’s so cool (and surreal!) getting to partner up with a brand that I’ve admired all my fashion life! It’s even cooler getting to see an Originals Collection 80’s comeback like this! Notice the fit and style of these skinnies. I love high-waisted jeans more than anything because they suck in the belly and make your legs the focus! 😉
You can pair it with a crop top and blazer like I did, or maybe keep it simple with a loose tee. No matter what your style is, these white jeans are the perfect spring/summer staple. I’ve been wearing a lot of white lately (well duh it’s spring!) because it literally matches everything (it’s an easy go-to!). To finish off this classic 80’s inspired look, of course I added a fun pop of color with the blazer. Oh how I love spring. And throwbacks.
