W H I T E hot…F A L L..yup white is being worn after labor day and in fact I may be wearing white even more in fall than I did in summer…see the thing about living in LA is that the weather is amazing year round, so I don’t experience the same season changes as I would in NY…sure it gets cooler here but fall leaves…chilly temperatures and snow are not in my future. So why not embrace the amazing sunshine and brighten things up with this ‘up beat’ look (can you tell I was watching ‘How To Loose A Guy In 10 Days’?) 😉BTW besides loving this little white dress, today’s post has a few funny outtakes…because trust me every blogger has those ‘wtf’ photos in her camera roll that she wants to delete but keeps them to laugh at…hey if you can’t laugh at yourself…you should just saying :p
So my white dress is actually from Just Fab and is no longer available so below I am sharing a few of my favorite white dresses (all long sleeves — perfect for fall weather). I am a firm believer white is chic year round.
My shoes are also summer sandals that I fully intend on wearing into fall. They are by Vince Camuto and I was never one for the whole ‘gladiator‘ trend but when I got these and slipped them on I fell in L O V E…they are actually comfortable and they come in various colors (plus they are on sale now!)
I paired them with a bright ‘Pop Of Color‘ by means of this Hayden Harnett Havana Hobo 2.0…seriously is this bright yellow bag perfect or what? The perfect way to brighten up some Monday blues!
Isn’t the best feeling in the world when you are having a good hair day…you know, when your hair has the perfect amount of volume, bounce + shine and is actually able to last the whole day? Yea…well thanks to Amika hair care and pro tools…that day is everyday! I am always game for trying new products, especially if they promise me fab hair in under an hour that actually lasts all day (yup then you have me sold).
Shop White Cold Shoulder Tops
Amika sent me some awesome products that I am for sure in love with (heck the Perk Up dry shampoo they sent me I already ran out of because I am that obsessed with it :p). They actually sent me the perfect after product to dry shampoo…Dry Conditioner! This is the first time I ever heard of it but I totally love it and it smells delicious (is sniffing my hair periodically throughout the day awkward? haha) These products are perfect for me because I try not to wash my hair everyday A) So it prevents my hair from getting to flat + B) Because it’s actually not good to wash your hair everyday (I learned this back when I was a receptionist at a hair salon on Long Island during my college years).
When I use dry shampoo + dry conditioner a day after washing my hair, it gives my hair a little texture, making it ideal for when I want to curl my hair…which brings me to the next amazing Amika product I tested out, the Amika Switch Kit which comes with this awesome interchangeable curling wand that you can swap out the heads for a curling iron whenever you feel like…all the parts match with the swivel base and it is super easy to put together + take apart.
It actually took me a while (and my roommate’s help) to teach me how to use a curling wand haha I have always been traditionally a curling iron kind of gal for fear of burning my fingers, but it is actually pretty easy to do and quick once you get the hang of it. So it’s awesome that whichever way you are most comfortable, Amika provides an option most suiting for you and your hair!So I had to share this little outtake from this shoot…Ali told me to make a funny face, well here it is haha #LongHairDontCare duh 😉
Now after the curling process comes what you need to finish off the look and have your hairstyle hold all day…Amika’s Touchable Hairspray! It has great hold without that ‘crunchy,stiff‘ feeling some hair sprays give you.
