Happy Thursday Babes! I have been super busy lately between getting everything ready for my upcoming trip to London + working on an exciting top secret project (don’t worry, I will reveal it soon hehe) my blog time has been slacking but I am getting back at it! I can’t believe summer is coming to a close – living in LA it makes it hard to realize a transition in seasons sometimes since the weather doesn’t change like good ‘ole NYC…what can I say, sometimes I miss the big apple! Luckily, today’s post reminds me a little of NYC because I am rocking a chic printed wrap dress from Leota New York! For some reason a classic wrap dress + pointed toe pumps is so ‘New York‘ to me. Maybe it reminds me of my corporate office days + being in the epicenter of the fashion world but I personally will always love playing dress up no matter what the occasion.
This Leota New York dress is beyond comfy + it is beyond flattering on various body types. It is fun, flirty yet professional + chic. Whether you are heading to the boardroom or a nice dinner, this dress paired with the perfect bag + heels is a total ‘must-have‘!
What I love about wrap dresses is how flattering they are. I have been up and down with my weight lately so the fact that it is tight on top and flows out makes it the perfect dress to ‘hide’ anything you may not want to accentuate 😉
The red in the dress was picked up with my red satchel from Miss Locker Bags (it retails for under $100 on Amazon). This bag I wore all over NYC as it has just the right amount of room to fit all of my essentials from my keys, to lipstick, to sunnies + more.
Classic white pumps are always a no brainer. I mean what is more chic than this?
Happy Monday ♥ Time for another busy week but I am actually excited about the weekend being over because it means we are that much closer to Thursday which is when my dad is flying out from NY to visit me! I am SO excited since this is going to be the first time he has seen me in LA since we road tripped here for my big move 2 years ago (it’s officially 2 years as of June 8th)! Crazy how time flies huh? Here’s to TWO years + many more successful years to come in LA LA Land! Anyways, my dad will finally see his little girl all grown up with her own place (and TWO walk in closets), settled in just fine. Maybe there will be a new ‘walk in’ closet for every year I am in LA…hopefully next year brings three haha I am sure I will accumulate plenty of more clothes + shoes by then :p
I spent the weekend trying to get my apartment in tip-top shape…I have never felt so domestic lol Between cleaning, laundry + cooking, I am officially ready to change my name to ‘Missy Stewart‘ haha move over Martha 😉
Besides hanging home I did a little shopping at one of my favorite stores to get the best ‘Looks For Less‘…Old Navy!
Happy Monday Ya’ll! ♥ I know I am not southern, but I kinda feel like if I were to live in the South I would be a total ‘Southern Belle‘ + I would be saying ‘ya’ll’ a lot…haha :p Anyways, time to get back to the everyday rise + grind after a relaxing Thanksgiving Day Weekend! ICYMI – today is CYBER MONDAY + that means some of the best online shopping deals (luckily I rounded up my picks the other day for Black Friday + a lot of the sales are similar for today as well)!
One site that is having killer deals today is Zaful.com…where I got this color block maxi dress from (perfect for fall, winter or year round depending how you style it). Zaful is currently having FREE SHIPPING world wide – no minimum purchase required, that means you can shop the styles you love + not worry about those pesky shipping costs. My dress is available in multiple colors + is under $20! See it here.
I seriously LOVE this dress + even though it is lightweight, I layered my favorite faux leather moto jacket over it to give it an edgy look making it perfect for work or play 🙂
Here are a couple of my current favorite moto jackets (both under $100)
I still can’t get enough of these mirrored sunnies (two similar options below)
My shoes are from De Blossom Collection, I love the comfortable platform design + the mixed tone hues that can be dressed up or down for work or a night out (I shot a cute holiday look with these babies over the weekend so stay tuned)!
My trusteeLouis Vuitton Speedy Bag has been with me since high school and has been a great signature piece to have for all occasions.
