The old saying goes…’No White After Labor Day‘…but I am pretty sure in this day + age, fashion rules no longer apply, am I right? 😉 Well if you ask me, I will ALWAYS opt to wear white year round, well after Labor Day!
Whether you opt for a little white dress like me or white jeans or a white sweater or hey maybe even white boots, I find all white everything to be so chic no matter what the season or occasion. Classic white will never be ‘in’ or ‘out’ of style + that is why I have more white in my wardrobe than black even haha :p One of my current white dress favorites? This off the shoulder piece from SheIn. It is comfy, stylish + is flattering on every figure!
White is such an easy color to style multiple ways + in my opinion is just as flattering as black. Adding a little white to your wardrobe really polishes up your outfits and helps make them crisp, clean + chic. I always find white to be classy since it just makes you feel like endless summer hehe This off the shoulder dress in particular is perfect for any occasion and you can even style it well into fall with a cardigan or blazer and some boots!
Since I shot this look last month during some hot 90 degree weather in Venice CA, it only seemed right I style it with my go to summer must-haves. This Cult Gaia Ark Bag has been a summer staple two years in a row now + paired with a simple Gucci belt + nude ankle strap heels, it really pulls the perfect look together.
Do you believe in wearing White After Labor Day? ♥
I don’t know about you but I will be hanging by the pool, BBQing, heading to Universal Studios, visiting the Warner Brothers backlot, checking out a Dodgers Game AND shopping some amazing Labor Day Weekend Sales! Ok Ok, it may seem like I have a lot going on this weekend BUT I have a good reason, my dad is in town visiting so we had to go ALL out haha It is the first time he is checking out my new place, meeting my boyfriend + it’s his second time in LA when I actually have time to show him around + check out some fun places.
In between playing hostess + tour guide, I will be stocking up on some great fall favorites, summer clearance deals + more during these awesome Labor Day Weekend Sales! From steals on outerwear to chic shoes for less to awesome home essentials deals, I am rounding up the best for less below!
Fall is just around the corner + while I love stocking up on my fall favorites, I also love styling my summer picks well into fall. My current obsessions? A little leopard paired with a cropped sweater like I did here! While I wore this Pink Blush leopard skirt during the summer with camisoles or bodysuits, it is perfect to transition to fall with a chic sweater like I did here.
These pieces are great to style a variety of ways + are total fall must-haves (plus you can style them for warmer weather as well as cooler weather)
Now for the pretty little details…I have been lusting after these Hermes sandals for months now + I finally took the plunge and got them. So happy I did! They are beyond comfy, match with everything + will never go out of style.
The best part of this ensemble? The bag! I have been eyeing up this Louis Vuitton backpack for a while now so when I saw it on Bag, Borrow or Steal, I knew I had to have it! What I love about this bag is how the size is equivalent to a normal handbag but has the chic, edgy style of a backpack! Bag, Borrow or Steal gives you two options…you can BUY (they are one of my top spots to find designer bags for less that are authenticated by their team of experts + are typically in AMAZING condition) OR you can BORROW.
So here’s the scoop on how to BORROW. You just search their BORROW tab, find your dream bag whether it be for a shoot, a special occasion or just because…follow the instructions and then you can borrow 1 bag a month for a certain rate – giving you the luxury handbag experience for less with no commitment of keeping the bag you are styling (perfect for the gal that is always testing out new trends + changing up their style)!
Fall is just around the corner + Back To School season is in full swing so time to round up some fun go-to bags for fall 2019…my current favorite style? Backpacks! Normally I’m not a backpack kind of gal but now more + more brands and designers are making stylish backpack options so I am rounding up some of my favorite backpack options here so you can head back to school or get ready for fall in style!
Does this dress make me look like a flamingo? hehe :p ICYMI the latest Instagram pose that all the gals are doing is a little something called the ‘Flamingo‘ (no joke it’s a real pose see HERE hehe). Anyways between rocking this stylish flamingo print dress to rockin’ this flamingo pose, I am never wanting summer to end. Honestly this IG pose craze is pretty great since it helps make you look sleek + tall…just like a flamingo haha get it? 😉
Since summer is coming to an end I wanted to get my last licks of summer in by sharing my flamingo look. This cute dress instantly makes me want to head on vacation (in fact we are planning our next getaway now…we are thinking Hawaii! Watchya think?) This dress is actually on MEGA sale from Red Dress Boutique (one of my major favorites as you may know by now haha I do hauls of their great styles basically weekly honestly) so I highly encourage you to shop it + snag it for 50% off!
Ever have one of those really amazing hair days + just feel on top of the world? This shoot day was definitely one of them! Ever since I began my Jenny Craig journey a year ago, my confidence has been through the roof and then a good hair or makeup day is an added bonus. It is crazy to think this time last year I was 60 pounds heavier and look at me now hehe :p
