Navy Stripe Puff Sleeve Bardot Crop Top – River Island | Light Brown Paper Bag Waist Skirt – River Island | Bettina Mules – Charlotte Stone | Palm Springs Mini Backpack – Louis Vuitton
Sometimes you get the perfect combination of feminine with a masculine twist. I think this paper bag waist skirt from River Island fits the bill of adding a classic color to a more modern shape. I decided to offset the more masculine elements of the skirt with a really cool off shoulder puffy sleeve striped blouse (tucked in ever so slightly). I really love how the skirt hits so high on the waist so you can easily tuck in a blouse and create a dress like silhouette.

I’m so excited to be partnering with one of my favorite brands River Island! For the longest time I was so bummed out to find such incredible pieces but realizing that they were only UK based :(. BUT lucky us, there is now a US site! *Cue applause track. I picked up this adorable tee that reads “I love you forever” in French.

I had an amazing time at NYFW this year and although I hit the end leg of the week it was still an amazing time. The second day of shows and previews I was lucky enough to share with my French Connection US family. I wore this incredible look all via French Connection! This look was the perfect outfit to wear with the incredible weather we received that day.

Thanks so much to Lulus for sending me these pieces to post!
Ok, I don’t care what anyone says but these ruffled wrap dresses are EVERYTHING. Not only are they so flattering on but they definitely can accentuate a lot of different shapes! For myself being flat chested I have some trouble with the top portion but a cute bralette quickly solves that problem. This is the perfect dress that you can wear casually, to work, or even dress up for a wedding!
Cobain Pant Tan – I.AM.GIA | Mesh Panel Flame Top – Forever21 | Patent Leather Lace Up Heeled Boots – ASOS | Mini Basket Bucket Chestnut – Cafune |
Cooked up this new look (literally) on one of the hottest weeks in So Cal lately. I buckled down and finally got these amazing pants from I.AM.GIA that are the perfect mix of street style inspired with a feminine twist. They are perfectly high waisted and feature a flattering elastic hemline so you can wear them higher or lower on the leg. To create a really fun somewhat Jeremy Scott inspired look I threw on this mesh back flame crop top from Forever21.

So excited for getting back into the Fall swing of things shortly! Seeing Halloween decor popping up in stores and with plaid and camel tones peaking out of retailers it can’t some soon enough! I just received this gold ruffled satin crop top from Urban Outfitters and was excited to dress it up a bit with my Lacausa uniform trousers that hit perfectly at my waist.

Blogging definitely has it’s ups and downs. There are days where I’m so inspired and am loving what I’m wearing, and of course days where I have something in mind whether outfit based, location based or creative direction based that just doesn’t work out. Today was one of those days where I had a long day at work and had to be creative after the fact. The sun was setting (quickly) and it was one of those moments where no matter where I stood I felt like I wasn’t getting the kind of shot I was looking for.

I had the pleasure of working with ASOS to style a few Summer blouses for you guys to enjoy! I have been a shopper on ASOS for quite some time so it’s one of those OMG OMG OMG moments when you get an email from them with something like this. Still surprises me when I get to work with brands and companies I’ve been such fans of for so long. Ok, back to the clothes, I grabbed a few really feminine pieces for Summer that are easy to wear with shorts, skirts, pants. What I love most about these blouses are that they are lightweight and in turn, perfect for the warm months we are currently living through.

Our Second Nature is a recent clothing brand that I was introduced to and I have to say I’m not looking back anytime soon. I’m really loving their sleek styles, artistic prints and essential basics. I styled two more of their pieces (see my other look here)
BDG Relaxed Denim Trucker – Urban Outfitters | Tommy Jeans Tee – Urban Outfitters | White Denim Skirt – &Other Stories | Sunshine Aviator Sunglasses – Urban Outfitters | Folded Teardrop Stud Earrings – Soko | Clear Strappy Mules – Zara |
I’ve recently been attracted to matching denim sets but haven’t found the exact matching pair (it’s a lot harder than it looks). While this isn’t exactly a set, I was able to find two perfectly paired pieces with the same color stitching to create my own! The white denim jacket is from Urban Outfitters as part of their new BDG Denim launch. I decided to add some color into the mix with a vintage inspired Tommy Hilfiger tee (from Urban as well) and my favorite, and I mean FAVORITE clear strappy heeled mules from Zara.
