Since we’re heading into October, we’re transitioning into Fall!! But seriously, California does not get a fall … at least not until around Thanksgiving. At least in the Bay area, we get really late summers. August to September tend to be a tad hotter than June and July so I’ve still been rocking some of my summer pieces lately.
I got this lovely two piece dress from Love Verity. They have the cutest selection of dresses and two pieces that embody a romantic Californian vibe. Two pieces are so awesome because they can be worn together or apart (woohoo a two-in-one!!) I’m such a sucker for maxi pieces and this piece caught my eye for the high slit and tie top. Loving the whole set just because it’s so laid back and romantic, which is definitely my style in day time dresses. The best thing about top that tie like that is that is can be tied multiple ways. I tied this in a bow in the front, or I can wrap it around, or really any way I can creatively tie it! Although I styled it this way, with the tie creating a plunging neckline, I can wrap it so it covers up more. This piece is so versatile and can be worn for a day time picnic or even to a fancy event like a wedding. I have a bunch of floral dresses in my closet, but I think this is one of the cutest I collected this summer. Make sure to check out Love Verity for more flowy romantic pieces!
Many people know me for my whimsical, girly, and pastel-toned closet. It’s not a lie! I’m seriously attracted to anything pink and girly, but with the changing seasons, I feel a change of style coming along! It’s really funny how on Instagram, I posted 4 consecutively all black outfits (with no pink) and I got an overwhelming response with people noticing!
I love having my trendy and statement pieces in my closet, and I feel like I’ve been collecting so many beautiful pieces for a while now. With Fall coming up, I’m definitely going to work on styling more simple and basic piece that can be worn multiple ways. While still trying to embody my personal style, I love wearing pieces that are sleek to my body. I’ve already started looking at some simple pieces that still make a statement. I gave it a try by styling this outfit. It’s a really easy, but put together look, with some high waisted jeans and a straight cut bodysuit. This could’ve been styled with some white sneakers for a more casual look, but I think the ankle heels tie my look together. Plus, it’s definitely more my style to wear heels!
Outfit Details // These are my favorite jeans ever — From PacSun. And trust me, I don’t own that many jeans because they’re uncomfortable on me. But these ones fit me so perfectly, the waist (I’m a size 23) and the length (I’m 5 “1). I’m short so these actually cut perfectly on me, which is EXTREMELY difficult to find. My favorite place to denim shop is definitely PacSun, ASOS, and MissGuided, because they have a petite section! Wearing the bodysuit goes so well with the jeans for it’s high waist and fitted size. It’s from Motel Rocks. It has a super sexy surprise is in the back! It’s completely backless, but has just little straps as dainty detailing. Lastly, the jacket is from Tobi!
I’ve always be obsessed with statement dresses and this dress is definitely not an exception. I recently picked up this dress in white, which I loved for it’s light, airy, and ethereal vibes. (Check out my previous blog post!) When I saw this dress in this mustard yellow, I was skeptical at first since I rarely sport yellow to contrast my warm skin tone. I’ve had my eye on this dress for a while, so I thought I’d take a risk on this lacey romper dress for the summer. And thankfully, it worked out! I loved shooting this at Stanford’s Cactus Garden (really hard to find the first time) which goes perfectly with the golden yellow. This location is such a hidden gem, I totally felt like I was in the desert! Plus the sunsetting gave us the perfect light the show the sheen through the lace skirt.
