A lot of you know, I consider myself to be a girlboss, boss lady or bossy babe but there are certain moments when I do feel like a queen. I don't use the term out loud often because it's more then just a description, it's a feeling and sometimes I feel silly referencing myself as one. But in all honesty, every woman should feel like a queen everyday! This queendom confidence can come from many sources, but for me, it comes from the way I dress. My expression of self has always been style - a walking art form. When I slipped on this stunning two piece set from Deux Reines, I felt so special. My comfort level in this outfit was at it's highest and rule #1 in my book: comfort is key.
In french, deux reines, translates to two queens and that is exactly what this brand embodies. They set out a mission to find the perfect pieces that make any woman feel like a queen. This online store conveys beauty, allure, and grace with a mixture of edgy pieces. Shopping the site, I fell in love with their flowy style - exactly the type of look you want to strut while you're out and about in Santa Barbara. I paired in a fun Topshop beret and belt bag to give this look a cool girl factor and opted for my favorite pair of heels. Easy and breezy, I couldn't help but twirl a few times as I walked out on the breakwater to capture these shots.
