Hello NOVEMBER ♥ With Halloween over, Thanksgiving and Christmas are right around the corner! That means it’s time to begin holiday shopping + gift guides (stay tuned)! The funny thing about living in LA is that you can’t really differentiate seasons because it is always sunny + warm all the time…with that said it makes it the perfect time to style some of your summer favorites well into fall with the right shoes + accessories.
I am always one to wear white after Labor Day but especially easy pieces like this dress that can be easily transitioned by adding a floppy hat + booties! I call that a win!!
I love this dress because it is just so easy to throw on + it is comfy. Dress it up, dress it down, either way it is a piece you should add to your wardrobe. I linked to similar styles below.
A fall staple of mine has always been a great floppy hat. I have this style in maroon, black + tan and it is a great piece to incorporate into your look (especially if you are having a bad hair day hehe).
I am obsessed with these booties! They are beyond comfy and they are great for daytime wear or for a night out look since they have a mid-high heel and a peep toe style.
Fun Fact: This Louis Vuitton Speedy Bag was one of my first large designer bags I got when I was younger. The classic style will always be in trend + is a great fall handbag for work or play.
Another busy week is in full swing – naturally I am bracing myself by relaxing and watching Vanderpump Rules…my secret (well now not so secret) addiction :p Sometimes when things get hectic, it’s important to take a deep breath, take a moment + take care of yourself (one of my goals / things I have learned since turning 25 last month…#HelloMarch)! Anyways…one of the things that always makes me happy is sharing some new outfits with you all and today’s look is no exception.
I headed to shoot this look at the ever so famous ‘Pink Wall‘ (which has become a well known phrase across the country BTW…I use the term ‘pink wall’ when referring to an insta-worthy spot for marketing initiatives haha). Usually there is a line and a wait to shoot in front of this famous wall on Melrose (in fact…there are now signs + security trying to stop people from shooting in front of it period during the day).
I decided to shoot a little chambray number that is perfect for winter into spring in LA!
These tan peep toe booties are a staple for spring (that will also last ya till the fall). They are comfortable because of the chunky heel and they match with absolutely everything!! That’s why I love neutral colors.
Happy Monday! So it may not feel like fall yet in LA (I was literally sweating when shooting outfits yesterday haha — so of course I cooled down with some ice cream — more of that on SnapChat – MissyOnMadison :p)
Anyways, even though the weather doesn’t quite feel like fall, this outfit sure does! I teamed up with my favorite ShopTheMint.com to share a new fall look + a fun G I V E A W A Y! ($50 Gift Card anyone?)This look includes all of my favorite fall essentials! The Chambray Shirt Dress aka my favorite dress to be wearing this fall. It can be dressed up or down and I love how simple it is so it’s time to pile on the accessories!I paired the dress with this chic Maroon Floppy Hat (because my love for floppy hats is serious this season obv). I also am obsessed with this Paisley Scarf (also from Shop The Mint).
ShopTheMint.com has everything you can and will need for fall…I kind of want to shop some more right now…I may have a slight problem…oops :p
I am also obsessed with these Go Jane booties. With the chunky heel and the lace up details, they are ideal for fall adventures.
I also paired this look with pink aviators — my new alternative to the blue ones I have been wearing all summer long.
I may love to dress up and wear heels, skirts + cute dresses but you know what…I think it’s time for a little break (I mean why not right?). Although I will always be a girly girl at heart, sometimes it’s fun to dress comfy and casual, so when Cotton Hood offered to send me a few hoodies to try I said umm Y E S! And boy am I glad that I did!! Ok, now I know it’s easy to think ‘hey it’s just a hoodie what’s so special’ well let me tell ya, it is the comfiest, softest hoodie I have ever owned…now that is a H U G E statement!This Cotton Hood zip up comes in various colors and is only $19.95! Quality for a great price…that’s always a W I N in my book! I feel like I am wrapped in a snuggly blanket every time I wear it…which is pretty much all the time after a long day of work or in the morning as I am doing my makeup in the mirror :pI styled this hoodie with some of my every day favorites — white denim shorts + a vintage gray tee. They are the perfect pieces to style with anything and my pink hoodie adds that little ‘Pop Of Color‘ I always desire with any ensemble 🙂
BTW how awesome is this shot…looks like I was having a #GoodHairDay woo!!
My accessories are also pieces that can be worn year round and are perfect to transition from warm to cool weather (even though I haven’t yet experienced that in LA).
It’s just days away…Mother’s Day! So the other day I shared a few gift ideas to make your mom smile…no matter what she is into, and today I share what to wear for Mother’s Day brunch, lunch or dinner (why Mother’s Day always centers around a springy meal I don’t know, but I do know 9 times out of 10 a white dress is appropriate!)
I just wore this white dress a week ago on the blog (#SorryNotSorry) but I honestly can’t get enough of it AND it is perfect for any spring special occasion. To really make it pop…I incorporated hints of neon because nothing brightens up a special day likes bright yellow and lime hues right?
