Since we are in full swing for back to school season + I have been binge watching Gossip Girl I figured I would share a little Blair Waldorf outfit inspo (any Gossip Girl fans here?!) One of my favorite preppy looks i love to wear is styling houndstooth.
I am mixing and matching a two piece houndstooth set I got from SHEIN here – I used the top for this look to style with a simple black skater skirt. I love buying two piece sets because you get 3 different outfits out of it – one for the two piece matching look, one of the top styled with different bottoms and one with the bottoms matched with a different top.
I layered a chic cardigan over this houndstooth top which instantly gave me school girl Gossip Girl vibes…must have for anyone that loves to add some preppy style to their wardrobe. I also paired the houndstooth print with a simple black skater skirt to avoid mixing patterns – this skirt is from Amazon + one of my go to’s.
Fall is just around the corner and that means time to switch up your wardrobe! While I have been stocking up on tons of new fall favs (my full fall style guide is on the way), I really became obsessed with transitioning my bright summer pieces into fall. Case in point? This neon yellow SHEIN dress is perfect for summer adventures AND styled the right way, it is perfect for fall as well. A few key fall pieces like a moto jacket, black pumps + a classic CHANEL can transform any summer look into a fall favorite!
This yellow pleated SHEIN dress has become a favorite a mine for many reasons, mainly because it is an instant pop of color for your wardrobe! The pleated style is flattering on various body types + is chic enough for work or play. Over the summer wear it as is with wedges or sandals and for fall style it like I did here in NYC with a nice moto jacket + black patent leather pumps.
A key piece you need year round is a great moto jacket (honestly I am guilty of owning 10 haha…in various colors + at different price points) anyways, I am linking to two of my favorites below along with another one of my signature go-to’s, black patent leather pumps!
This shoot is from my most recent trip to NYC but I am already itching to go back. I truly love NYC…it will forever have my heart since it is my home born + raised.
While I love living in LA now (endless summer is kinda amazing) I miss the vibe in NYC, the hustle + bustle and when I dream in NYC I dream of living on the Upper East Side with a collection of Manolo Blahnik heels (very Carrie Bradshaw)…meanwhile in LA I dream of a house in Bel Air, a G Wagon + tons of Hermes haha the dream is different from city to city, what can I say.
What I miss most about NY is being able to wander during the day, people watch + get inspired for more fashion forward looks and see street style in real life. In LA you have to drive everywhere so the style you become accustomed to is what you see on Instagram rather than real life.
A classic piece I will wear forever no matter where I go? This black CHANEL flap bag. I love this bag so much since it is perfect for every occasion, well worth the investment let me tell ya.
Having total Beetlejuice vibes with this black striped dress today. I love a little black dress + what I love even more is a striped little black dress. I am currently in total holiday mode, BUT…before I begin sharing all my festive holiday season outfits, I have to share some more fall favorites like this chic dress from Skies Are Blue. What I love about this dress is that it is perfect for work or play + with a flattering fit, it’s great for date night too!
This is my twist on a little black dress because it is the little striped dress hehe 😛 You like what I did there? 😉
This dress is from Skies Are Blue, but I linked to some additional styles that are similar below – exciting news, this dress is actually big on me now since I have been loosing weight thanks to Jenny Craig!
I paired this dress with white boots (my fav trend this fall) + my trustee Chanel bag…you can never go wrong with a little Chanel.
I feel like white boots are just perfect for fall – they elevate your style + I find a bunch of affordable options above.
I hope ya’ll had a great weekend! My boo + I had a busy weekend shooting new looks + fun content for the blog, along with a little date night trip to the movies to see The Equalizer – which was AMAZING btw! Pretty convinced Denzel can do no wrong :p hehe
One of the things I love about summer is wearing light colors + layers. This Simply Be white eyelet dress combines my love for both. For some reason when I see a white eyelet dress, I instantly think Sunday brunch or a trip to the horse races or a trip to a polo match, very ‘sophisticated chic’. With that vision in mind, I had to pair this dress with simple black accessories. If you ask me, black + white is always a good idea…
I love this eyelet dress because it is chic enough for the office or a special occasion, but it also keeps you cool in the warm summer temps (especially in LA it has been like 100 degrees)!
It is one of my favorite dresses I have scored on Simply Be because it looks so expensive but retails for under $60! It also fits true to size which is always a plus.
You can never go wrong with a little black heel! These Steve Madden black ankle strap heels are one of my current go-to’s because they match with everything + with the chunky heel, are comfortable as well!
You can also never go wrong with a classic Chanel. When in doubt, add Chanel hehe 😉
