ICYMI the biggest trend right now is tie dye! I am all for it – reminds me of my middle school years where I rocked lots of tie dye pants haha Embracing this trend the best way I know how by rounding up my favorite apparel, accessories + more so you can embrace the tie dye trend just like me!
Looking to step out + make a statement? Then this is the look for you! I wore this gorgeous black tulle gown from Red Dress Boutique while I was in NYC last month to shoot on the breathtaking Brooklyn Bridge. When I shot this gown everyone asked if I was getting ready for the holiday season early + then when I posted a sneak peak of it on my instastories I got lots of questions about the dress as a piece to wear to winter weddings! It’s a chic style that makes a statement + can be worn for so many different occasions, especially with the holiday season + winter wedding season in full swing!
I absolutely love this gorgeous dress for so many reasons. It makes me feel like a princess the moment I put it on, it is actually comfortable when wearing it for long periods of time + it makes a bold statement in a classy way. I am always up for a little tulle whenever possible + this dress definitely didn’t disappoint.
Because this is such a beautiful special occasion dress, to wear it in a more casual way, I styled it with a simple black moto jacket, nude Stuart Weitzman heels + classic Chanel bag. Anytime I am trying to take a dressy piece + dress it down I add a moto jacket. It can give any outfit an edgy look instantly, plus it allows you to wear special occasion pieces more often.
I love the pretty detailing of this dress, from the tulle bottom to the beaded top, it is perfect for wedding season or winter events.
I can’t remember where I bought this moto jacket so I linked to some similar styles below – definitely worth the investment since you will get years of wear out of it.
As for shoes + bag, I kept them simple so I can let the dress take center stage. I love this black Chanel Flap Bag since it is a classic + will match with everything you wear forever + ever.
Ya’ll I am so excited to be back in LA after a hectic week in NYC! While I love the Big Apple, I was so busy I didn’t even have a moment to rest, blog or handle just about anything other than the tasks at hand so being back home is a great feeling BUT while I was in NYC I did shoot some amazing content including this pretty in pink look from REVOLVE!
As you know, I love a good Pop Of Colorso when I spotted this Lovers + Friends Dress from REVOLVE I instantly fell in love with it + knew I needed to have it! I headed down to SOHO + while I didn’t do a lot of shopping I did do a lot of photo taking haha The bright design of the dress paired perfectly with the chic cobblestone streets of SOHO.
I love the color pink, it just brightens up an entire look, makes me smile + most importantly makes me feel good. Life’s too short to not embrace + love who you are, what you are wearing + how you are feeling. This past shoot in NYC made me fall in love with the city again + also made me reminisce on how far I’ve come from the young gal attending college + interning in NYC.
It’s always good to see where you came from to help you envision where you are going!
I’m off to NYC today for a week filled of work, photoshoots, seeing friends + family and of course spending some time at my favorite spots in the Big Apple! Whether I am in NY to visit family, have meetings or shoot new content, I always love being back in the city that never sleeps, my true home. I’ve been living in LA for over 5 years now but it stills feels like just yesterday that I was living and working in New York where I was born + raised. I will forever have a NY personality (I am totally impatient, loud, I hustle + I don’t take no for an answer haha) and when I first moved to LA my east coast personality definitely took people by storm.
I am a firm believer that if you can make it in NY you can make it anywhere + that my NY roots contributed to the success I’ve been having even here in LA. NY is a city that allows you to dream, allows you to be who you want to be, achieve your goals + experience new things each and everyday. I learned so many key life skills and career skills from my time in NY + each time I return back I reminisce about my early years in my career, my college years + how far I’ve come…
One of the many things I love about NY is that you can truly be as fun + crazy as you want to be. I love mixing feminine vibes with uptown chic styles, my ultimate style icon being Carrie Bradshaw (as if that weren’t already obvious haha :p) I always wanted to get some fun photos with the famous yellow NYC cabs so last time I was in the city I did this shoot + all of my SATC vibes came to life!
I actually bought this skirt + bodysuit in multiple colors so I mix and match the pieces all the time. These pieces are great to dress up with heels or even make them casual with a moto jacket and sneakers.
I kept my shoes and bag classic. I love this black Chanel Flap Bag + bring it with me everywhere I go – especially NYC for business meetings or nice dinners. My heels are classic black patent leather pumps, a pair every gal should have for work + play.
I also pulled the look together with one of my signature Gucci belts, this pearl one which pairs perfectly with the feminine details of the tulle skirt.
Now I am off to the Big Apple…have a great weekend ya’ll!
I didn’t think it would be possible to combine some of my summer favorites into fall but…I did it. I love wearing pastel hues year round (dark colors aren’t really my thing…they have their time and place don’t get me wrong but right now…I am loving some lighter colors to embrace the fall season so here we are! I am loving this dress from Red Dress boutique and ladies you must get it! It comes in a variety of colors and it fits pretty true to size – plus you can style it a variety of ways season to season.
I styled this dress with a white Gucci belt. I searched high + low for this beauty and finally scored it from MyTheresa! I discovered MyTheresa and instantly fell in love because there is FREE shipping and NO TAX since they are based in UK.
I also tied the look together with the trendy hairband of the moment…pearl ones! I stocked up on these ones from Amazon + they are great to style with any look so I bought them in every color to mix and match.
I am OBSESSED with this floral Gucci bag. I scored it on major discount and have been wearing it ever since. It’s a great size and with the pop of floral it makes it a great bag to make a statement with whatever look you are wearing. In terms of an investment, this bag is definitely worth it since it is sturdy and amazing quality!
