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 am so excited to be on vacation! I have had a whirlwind of a year so taking time to relax, unwind + disconnect has been much needed. My boyfriend + I are away in Florida to celebrate my birthday + our anniversary so to get in a tropical state of mind I wanted to share some of my favorite tropical print dresses that I will be rocking on my trip!
These photos were taken before I started Jenny Craig – crazy what a difference this program has made in my life…I have lost over 40 pounds + truly feel so much better than I did when I was shooting these images 😉
Anyways, I can’t remember exactly where I got this tropical print dress but I found a few similar styles I am linking to below:
The first few days back at the office after a long holiday weekend are always tough…that’s why I had to take a mini blog break the past few days since I needed to A) Open all of my Black Friday + Cyber Monday packages (which was a TON) hehe + B) Catch up on some sweat sessions after a turkey filled weekend! Funny enough, it doesn’t feel like winter time here in LA…it was actually like 85 degrees on Thanksgiving + I have been melting ever since. So what is a gal to do when she wants to rock some of her favorite cozy fall styles without the bitter cold weather? Style them with a skirt, duh!
Tobi.com has become my go-to for key pieces to add to your wardrobe over the past few months. From cozy sweaters like this cowl neck one to nude booties I will be rocking all season long…Tobi has everything I need to transition from fall to winter + any temperatures (from warm LA to cold London…these pieces will be life savers).
If you ask me, a cozy cowl neck sweater is always a good idea. Whether you style it with jeans, leggings or a skirt like I did here, they are bound to keep you looking chic while keeping you warm + toasty as well.
I opted to style it with a faux leather skirt since LA is too warm for pants at the moment haha So a skirt it is!
P.S. this outfit is great for family gatherings as well!
My sunnies are from Diff Eyewear – I am truly obsessed with their sunnies because they look like Raybans but at half the price! Plus, they work with a bunch of influencers + celebrities to create capsule collections that are too stylish to pass up. These ones come in various colors and are under $100!
On Tuesday’s I wear pink or maybe it’s just anytime I am at Peggy Porschen in London hehe ♥
I am sure you saw this little pink slice of heaven all over my Instagram story when I was in London last month (if you missed it, don’t worry – this post is pink filled to the max + will make you want to hop on a plane to London right now!) Before I headed off to London I made a thourough list of all the places I wanted to visit AND a list of all the places I wanted to shoot new outfit photos at…a place that made it to the top of both lists? Yep, you guessed it, Peggy Porschen, the home of the cutest insta photo spot + delicious treats (which naturally I had to try in between shots) + a great place to people watch as passerby’s looked at me like a looney for taking endless photos of my white tweed jacket with faux fur trim while my photographer was stopping traffic to get the ‘insta worthy shot‘ lol The things we do for the blog + social media #TheStruggleIsReal :p
I am BEYOND obsessed with this girly look: 1) because it involves my brand new Chanel I purchased in Paris the day before AND 2) it includes pink, tweed + faux fur…what else does a fashion obsessed gal need in life? Am I right? 😉
The jacket makes such a statement and matched perfectly with the feminine design of the cafe along with my pink skater skirt. I broke up the light colors with hints of black from my bodysuit, shoes + bag.
I loved wearing this bodysuit with skirts around London since it doesn’t ride up, sucks everything in haha and it is really comfy no matter what you style it with. I was always terrified of bodysuits (the thought of having to take it off to go to the bathroom scared me haha) but I got over it + I am SO glad I did.
In between snapping photos, my photographer and I had to try some yummy treats that Peggy Porschen is well known for. One of their signature cupcakes is this beauty below (sorry guys but I can’t remember the name of it for the life of me but I assure ya it was delicious).
Fun Fact: I am not a coffee drinker, so anytime I have coffee in a photo, it was purchased for that sole purpose…the photo 😉 haha That was the case with this cup that had to be snapped because who doesn’t love lips in their coffee?!
My shoes + bag are timeless classics. Black never goes out of style…neither does Chanel or a chic pair of heels…this outfit happens to have both!
These black ankle strap heels are currently on sale at Nordstrom + are a MUST HAVE for every wardrobe. Mix + match them with any look you are going for no matter how dressy or casual…they literally go with everything.
Ready to sip on a ‘lip’ covered latte at this pink cafe? Me too! London here I come…well in another month (December can’t come soon enough) ♥
Happy M O N D A Y loves ♥ I hope you all had a great weekend! I finally got to catch up with my bestie who I haven’t seen in forever + naturally what did we choose to do? Take outfit pictures lol…We get a bit crazy on Sundays, what can I say hehe 😉 Isn’t it funny the things you choose to do with your bestie? For some reason Samie + I find it fun to either A) Relax in Palm Springs (which is where we are off to this weekend to celebrate her birthday!) or B) Take outfit pictures, occasionally another option happens C) Outfit pictures in Palm Springs haha A combination of both!
Whether it’s exploring new walls in DTLA or heading out to Palm Springs for a colorful door crawl, Samie + I bond over outfits, photography + our obsession for getting that perfect ‘money shot’ (which in our world means, the pic you will post on Instagram haha). Yesterday was one of those outfit filled days + that’s when I got to sport my new floral kimono from Tobi.com!
This lightweight kimono is perfect to layer over a chiffon camisole to beat the summer heat in LA! Whether you are heading to brunch with girlfriends, dinner with your boo or even the office, this floral kimono instantly adds a little extra something to an ordinary outfit. I opted to pair this kimono with a blush camisole + white skinny jeans for Sunday Funday brunch with Samie.
You can snag this kimono now from Tobi.com for 50% Off!! You know I LOVE a good sale + lucky for me, Tobi has great deals all the time…meaning I can snag stylish pieces at an affordable price point!
I love this little Louis Vuitton Toiletry Pouch but to wear as a clutch! It fits all my essentials + matches with everything, making it a great bag to wear for any occasion.
I also have a slight obsession with ankle strap heels, so it comes as no surprise that I have them in white (I also have them in nude, black, leopard print, pink, yellow + green haha) :p
