Dress It Up or Down

Most of the time, I am the person at the holiday parties that is way overdressed. I can’t help that I love clothes and dressing up! Life of an aspiring fashionista… For this year’s holiday party, I decided to mix it up a bit – dress it up on top, but dress it down on the bottom, or what my Grandma likes to call it “a fancy top with raggedy jeans!” haha. I obviously had to “shoulder” my jacket (tip: if all else fails, shoulder it), rock the shades, strap on the studded heels, and flash off my favorite Tannery LA bag to add a little bit more steeze to the outfit :)

Sending out this inspo to all the darlings stuck in the cold this week! It’s still sunny in LA, and we wouldn’t have it any other way! With Thanksgiving around the corner, it seems like it’s only a matter of time before we stash our cut-off shorts and start nomming on the pumpkin pie. I’m lovin’ this look because it features two pieces that I knowww I’ll be wearing all winter long: body chains (YES) & kimonos (think paired over a long sleeve, under a leather jacket, or with denim tied in!).

• The emerald dress can be paired with a blazer for work, then stripped down to expose the open back for cocktails and a night out on the town! A great outfit for a top knot bun too!
• The boxy, hot pink dress would be easy to slip on for work, and since the look is very bold, all you’ll need to complete the outfit are simple black heels! In the evening, ditch the work bag for a cute patterned clutch!

• The long sleeved lavender dress is perfect for both summer and fall/winter. The light and refreshing palette can be great during a cool summer’s day, complemented with bold jewelry and wedges. When fall rolls around, you could easily pair the dress up with tights/leggings and boots!

• The patterned pencil skirt and crop top are perfect for a day date/event, and paired perfectly with a dainty drop down necklace, heels/flats, and clutch.

Street Style: Fall Dresses

You may recognize this beautiful babe because, wellllllp, who wouldn’t? She’s fabulous and stylish… and she’s one of our very best friends!

She showed up like this for breakfast with the girls, making effortless look unachievable. Either way, this chica is Fall-ready wearing subdued, earthy tones and neutral wedges. The busy pattern and colors of her dress get all the attention, which is why we LOVE the way she kept her accessories and makeup simple! Skinny belt, single watch, & middle part? Check, check, check!

Street Style: Fringed Floral Frock

We ran into this adorable chica at brunch and couldn’t get enough of her outfit! She was dressed in a fringed frock that paired extremely well with her booties! We especially loved the way she left her socks exposed!

Throw on some John Lennon inspired shades, and you’re ready to rock. LOVE IT! <3

Weekend Wardrobe: Nordstrom, Forever 21, Neo 39

I know, I know, I am a little late with the weekend wardrobe update! Better late than never, right? On Sunday, my girlfriends and I had a celebratory brunch for a friend who is leaving for Med School!! Due to the hot summer weather, I thought I would keep it cool and classy with a flowy floral dress. I didn’t want to accessorize too much because the dress already draws so much attention with its vibrant colors. Also, I decided to go with shorter heels to give the outfit a more casual/daytime look. How are you staying cool, yet fashionable during these hot summer days? Share with us!

Greetings from beautiful Spain!! This weekend, I opted for a simple chambray / floral skirt combo. This look is super comfortable, airy, and protects your shoulders from the sun when exploring a new city! I threw on a sequined cloth necklace for a little extra glam, and put my hair in a messy braid to avoid frizz from the nearby ocean breezes. I even wore my skirt backwards (gasp) for an edgier, zipper-in-front look. Simple, fun, and perfect for travel!
