When I get hooked on something in fashion I really get hooked. We’ve all been there, little black booties, slides, and now culottes are taking over my wardrobe…in a good way. I couldn’t resist picking up something from the Reformation sale and these pants were seriously calling my name. Culottes really are the perfect pant to wear with flats or heels. I would recommend wearing them with a more fitted blouse to really give off that 70s flare vibe. There’s something about printed pants that really draw me in, most likely because I have such a monochromatic top collection that I know I will find plenty of items to match them with. But really, checkout the sale and get yourself some duds; you’ll not only look good but you’ll feel good knowing all products are made with the earth in mind. Happy Shopping!
You know you’ve grown up in style when you finally purchase more than one pair of shoes per season (previously limited to: one pair of sandals for summer, one pair of boots for winter/fall, and a pair of torn to shreds tennis shoes). I have accumulated quite the collection of footwear over the past few months and I must say I now feel closer to Carrie Bradshaw than ever before. Something I’ve found a real passion for is finding shoes that flatter my ankles. (I really do have a strange concept of areas on my body I find flattering). There’s something about slenderizing them that makes them look great in #fwis or #sotd photos. All of my Instagram friends can understand.
Shoes with a nice dip beneath the ankle, pointed toe, and a tighter fit to them look great with minis & cropped skinnies. On the flip side adding a little strappy goodness to your ankles doesn’t kill their vibe either (if your as obsessed with the Isabel Marant sandals above as I am). Happy shopping!

I was on a serious hunt for these gladiator sandals and I must say they didn’t disappoint. I am in love with the lace up and laser cut details. I kept my detail minimalistic with the lace on my skirt and simple gold jewelry. There’s nothing like a clean white outfit in the summer!

I really enjoy a good bottom now and again and these culottes are no exception. I might hem them a little higher so they will be easier to wear with flats but for now I think the heels and crop top offset the wide leg bottom quite nicely. These will be the perfect summer pant for a nice evening out for dinner or drinks don’t you think? Also don’t forget to check out the Zara sale because it’s ridiculously good right now.
I’m so happy to finally have my sister back home in SoCal so on one of our weekend adventures we stopped by Savers one of her favorite thrifting destinations. I couldn’t believe when I found this perfect white dress. I’m a sucker for anything resembling the neckline of this piece which I find is one of the more flattering fits for my body type. The lace up back detailing sold me at the end of the day and you really can’t beat a $10 steal such as this. Another reason I picked it up was the resemblance to one of my favorite brands Reformation. There’s something about the dresses simplicity mixed with it’s new age details that makes it so desirable when paired with nude strappy heels and a wide brimmed hat.
P.S. If you haven’t already seen via Instagram I have a new puppy in my life! Meet Kirby the Frenchie who has made many a cameo in my outfit post photos. Happy Monday!

My latest fashion obsession is the shirt dress maxi. Something about it’s lightweight cotton with the not so flirty hemline makes me think a little less risky business and a whole lot more class. Whether it’s short, quarter, or long sleeve you just can’t go wrong with something as easy to throw on as this. A summer staple for the masses.

I’m a little obsessed with classic 50s style inspired by favorites like Audrey Hepburn and Lauren Bacall (whom according to an online quiz is my classic actress counterpart). ModCloth has always been my favorite site for classic vintage inspired dresses and accessories. I paired this cute baby doll dress with white heeled loafers, cambridge satchel in red and a simple leather bound wrist watch. Classic simplicity is my favorite way to dress, I wish there was an excuse to dress like this everyday. Oh not to mention my new French Bulldog puppy would really complete my look walking down the streets of New York City ready for brunch!

The back detailing on this dress speaks for itself. Simple sophistication with a punch of fun loving in the print. I’m a huge fan of dresses and tops with high necklines and skinny straps as it tends to flatter my body type. What I like most about the Isla Maxi Dress by Cleobella is it’s functionality to transition from day to night. Pairing with sandals and a jean jacket for the beach and throwing on heels and a gold armband for a night out makes it a no brainer. Not to mention I love the feeling (and confidence) of wearing something with a dramatic back, tends to turn some heads.
I’m also obsessed with these shoes if you hadn’t noticed (Instagram followers would know). I had contemplated getting the Steve Madden version of these peep toe booties but the price point just wasn’t fit for the time, not to mention I’m so picky with heels I never know if I should make the investment or if I’ll still end up wearing my Zara slides everyday. These were well worth the money spent. The leather is flexible and soft making them a lot more comfortable than I imagined, only downside is when your breaking them in you get a little discomfort on the top of your big toes. #justsayin

There is something about wide leg trousers that have an incredible mix of class and comfort. These H&M pair are no exception. I chose to wear them high waisted with an off shoulder crop top to mix a more structured top with a free flowing bottom. Not only are these comfortable but they give a really great silhouette, the price also doesn’t hurt the wallet too much either ($19 hollah!).

Been obsessing over these Friend of Mine Suzie Blue overalls for quite some time. After stalking them online I finally made my decision to go with the white pair after Urban Outfitters threw them on sale. I grabbed a size 2 and they have an amazing fit compared to the pair of shorteralls I picked up at the flea market (very roomy in the leg). Can’t wait to wear these over summer with some fun printed cropped tops. Today I paired them with my new Madewell button up, Topshop HYDRATE pool sliders and Cleobella Leena Backpack. Side note regarding the backpack, the shape is incredible, and the pocket can be taken off and interchanged giving you the ability to switch up your bag AND an extra clutch for those evenings out.
