I am gearing up for a fun weekend ahead + it’s putting me in a bit of a tropical mood…maybe since Vegas is filled with pool parties and palm trees…much like LA but I digress haha :p I shot this fun palm print look over the summer but I honestly don’t care that fall is upon us, I am sharing it…yolo…am I right? :p
I have always been a fan of palm prints whether it is home decor or apparel ever since I moved to LA…honestly makes me feel like I am in vacation mode year round.
I went pretty much head to toe palm print. I am loving this palm print kimono…it is great to wear at the pool or layered of a simple camisole like I did here or even a dress. The print is fun + adds an instant ‘pop of color‘ to any look.
One piece of this look I will be wearing well into the fall season is this suede button front skirt. It is great to style with any blouse or sweater. Pair it with boots or heels for the office or for a day out with your girls.
My favorite part of this look? These palm print heels! Aren’t they so fun? The platform style makes them trendy + comfortable. They are also on sale for under $40.
I don’t know about you, but I have a serious case of the Mondays! After clearing out a full inbox, I am finally feeling a little relieved. Honestly, nothing stresses me out more than an inbox filled with emails. If I see a notification, I must check it…my BF definitely thinks I am a nut but hey…I don’t ever want to leave an e-mail unanswered hehe :p
My boo + I laid low this past weekend since this weekend we are heading to VEGAS! I am super excited to celebrate my boo’s bday in Sin City. While we aren’t big gamblers by any means (we both would rather gamble with our money in the stock market than at the Blackjack table haha :p) we are super excited to explore, relax + live it up! I surprised him with a fun car tour featuring one of his favorite car guys he likes to watch so I am ready to rev up + see what bad ass cars we will get to check out over the weekend!
What I love about fall is how easy it is to transition your favorite summer pieces for cooler weather. This pink pleated midi skirt was on repeat for me this summer – styled with a crop top or body suit, so I styled it for fall with a chambray button down blouse that I tied for a feminine look!
I love this look for fall since it is fun, flirty + great for hanging with friends or date night. I also plan on styling this midi skirt with a chunky sweat for winter with ankle boots!
I love being a little ‘matchy matchy‘ so a pink skirt plus pink heels = perfection!
I feel like every gal needs a cute pair of pink heels to dress up any look. Pair them with jeans, dresses, skirts + even more…they are bound to make a statement.
My bag was a graduation gift to myself when I graduated high school – the Louis Vuitton Speedy. This bag is an oldie but still a goodie.
I hope ya’ll are having a great weekend! I am laying low this weekend prepping for a busy week ahead + celebrating my boo’s birthday next weekend in Vegas! It’s finally beginning to cool down here in LA so it’s about time I embrace fall style…including OTK boots – my FAVORITE! I don’t know what it is about over the knee boots, but I find them so sexy, especially in a nude color since they elongate your legs.
I am super excited about today’s look because it features one of my favorite fashion brands of the moment…Lysse. What I love about this brand is that all of their pieces are great quality + retail at an affordable price point. All of Lysse’s pieces are great staples to keep in your closet, especially the Deep V-Neck Dress + Cropped Denim Jacket I am wearing today.
I am loving this V-Neck Dress for a few reasons. 1. The material is beyond cozy + chic, 2. It has gorgeous embellishment on the shoulder straps + 3. It has a really flattering fit!
I paired it with this fun cropped denim jacket which you can style up or down with anything. The material stretches to flatter your shape + it isn’t too heavy.
I am getting into the full swing of fall style with one of my favorite go-to shoes, these nude over the knee boots. I linked to some similar styles below!
My bag is Dior + one of the first designer bags I ever bought on my own.
I don’t know about you, but I had a case of the Monday’s today…maybe you could call it Monday blues…so I found it fitting to of course share a blue look for fall. I find navy to be so chic + a great alternative to black. While I got this dress earlier in the summer, I think it can be great for fall with a layered cardigan or even pair it with jeans! But my favorite part of this look are my shoes + bag…I mean come on…aren’t they fab?!
I got this dress from an online boutique called Poppy + Sky, but I found some similar options below since it is sold out on their site. Honestly, any summer time floral dress can easily be transitioned to fall with the right accessories etc.
I have always been a huge fan of swing dresses because they flatter every body type and are so feminine with the flowy silhouette. While they aren’t always ideal in the wind hehe :p (Marilyn Monroe moment anyone) but they are super comfy + stylish.
One of the many things I love about blogging is discovering new brands, companies + designers. Today’s post is filled with BOTH!
When I first spotted these stunning heels on instagram, I knew I had to have them. How gorgeous are they? The platform trend is one I am all about because they are super comfortable. These blue satin heels with the bedazzled buckle detail from Tina Maria (a fab designer) are pure perfection. I made them work in a more casual setting here, but I will for sure dress these up for a date night sometime soon 😉 Maybe I will take them with me to Vegas next weekend for my boo’s birthday!
My bag is from another designer I discovered on instagram, Luxchilas. Luxchilas has tons of great designs from accessories to handbags that totally brighten up any look. This blue half moon straw bag is the perfect pop of color to add to any outfit. I love the size + straw like material, it is going to be my go-to bag for my upcoming trip to Florida in February!
I hope you all had a great weekend! Mine was filled with photoshoots as per usual 😛 Life of a blogger…photos all day, everyday! Anyways…I know we may be falling for fall at the moment, but I still have plenty of summer looks I haven’t shared yet + since it was actually 95 degrees where I live in LA over the weekend, I felt this look was appropriate to spread some sunshine everywhere. Who doesn’t like to brighten things up heading into a new work week, right?
I LOVE this matching set from AMI Clubwear. The stretchy material makes it super comfortable to wear throughout the day + you can dress it up with heels or down with sandals…either way it is a total must have! They only have a few sizes available of this set left so I linked to some similar styles below as well.
Honestly, I feel like you can even style this look for the fall, just layer a cozy cardigan over it + some booties!
I will be styling this Cult Gaia Bag well into fall because honestly, why not. Isn’t it super cute to wear year round?
My cork ankle strap heels have been my go-to since last fall. They are comfortable, match with everything + are a staple for every fashionista!
Even though it is only a 4 day work week, this week has been jam packed, making me crave summer pool days + BBQ hehe :p Since I am still in a summer state-of-mind I decided to share a fun look back at one of my easy breezy summer looks (pre-weight loss) that I will wear well into the fall. Whoever said you can’t wear white after Labor Day has it all wrong if you ask me hehe :p
I have always loved wearing white year round. While I know black makes you appear slimmer + is easier to style, I find white to be crisp, clean + classy (unless you are messy from time to time like me haha then it’s not always a classy moment).
I love a simple white dress + I lived in this one from Shop Dress Up all season long. While this dress is no longer available on their site, I linked to some similar ruffle white dresses below!
Because I love white on white on white, I had to style this White Beachwood Handbag from Miss Lola with my look. I love this bag because it fits the Cult Gaia trend but retails for a fraction of the price (under $100).
I am beyond obsessed with these black espadrille wedges from Shop The Mint. You can style these wedges with jeans, dresses, skirts + more well into the fall (plus they are SUPER comfortable).
If you aren’t a wedge person, I highly recommend you reconsider 😉 Comfort + height in one shoe?! Count me in!
I am keeping today’s post short + sweet + straight to the point…White After Labor Day is most certainly a ‘thing‘!
I hope ya’ll had a great weekend! ICYMI – I did a fun shopping guide post yesterday rounding up some of my favorite sunnies to rock year round (the best trends, various price points + more). I also spent the weekend shooting some new looks I will be rocking well into fall…like this bright number from Simply Be! Pairing yellow + black gave me instant bumble bee vibes, and honestly? I am ALL about it!
I always love a fun pop of color so when I found this dress retailing for under $60 I knew I had to have it. First off, it fits like a glove + the color makes it a great statement look for any occasion. Whether you are heading out for date night or you are off to some back to back meetings, this dress is a great way to brighten up your wardrobe!
I paired it with a Gucci belt to add a little dimension + show off my waist. This Gucci belt was a great investment I made recently since it matches with everything, is affordable when it comes to designer accessories + it is high quality leather.
My bag is my go-to classic Chanel. I bought it in Paris and haven’t found it in the US but linked to a similar style here.
I love this bag + this was well worth the investment. You will never regret a Chanel. They retain value + are always in style.
When it comes to my heels, black ankle strap heels are a must-have for every gal’s wardrobe. Style them up or down, either way, they are a signature piece for everyone.
Love my hair? It’s thanks to my new amazing hair extensions from Hair Dreams! I am working on a full post all about them, so stay tuned ;p
