While I was looking through the “What’s New” pages of Net-a-Porter (somewhat of a morning ritual for me) I found this amazing IRO Ralene lace up dress. It was calling for a mood board, so I went to work creating this Weekend Whimsical look.
This Weekend Whimsical post features transitional items from summer to fall. As you can see there is a little suede and some long sleeves, yet there is still a light and breezy summer vibe.
Have a great weekend and make sure you get the brunch you deserve!
Good morning friends! Today I am dressing up a casual off the shoulder denim romper with some white Christian Louboutin pumps and a hand painted Christine Joy Teodoro silk scarf.
I love how on trend and easy to wear this Vero Moda Off the shoulder denim romper is. You could honestly wear it with converse or heels like I did! A romper is a less obvious way to rock the off the shoulder situation that is going on in fashion right now. Personally, I’ve always been an off the shoulder fan. It’s sexy, but not too sexy (I’m never into that).
This Christine Joy Teodoro hand painted silk scarf is even prettier in person. I love the idea of wearing an item that isn’t mass product and crafted with love and passion. I am always in favor of supporting artist….especially when their items are awesome! This CJT scarf would make a perfect/personalized gift for a loved one who likes fashion, but already has everything. A thoughtful gift is ALWAYS received well.
Two of my summer makeup go to items have been my Urban Decay naked skin weightless foundation (a little goes a lounge way) and my Aveda Indian Sunset collection. Both items transition well into Fall. Just look at that Indian Sunset lipstick above…it screams warm weather and fall leaves.
Have a lovely weekends cause it’s almost FRIYAY!
Happy Friday Friends! Whoot Whoot! Today I am collaborating with Ettika + Revolve to share an incredibly chic choker at an affordable price point.

I am completely honored (I know that sounds dramatic) to be collaborating with two websites that I shop regularly. Revolve and Ettika are both modern bohemian clothing and accessory companies for the sexy, cali, festival, beach goer girl. Wow, that is a lot of adjectives! This Etikka Role Player choker is such a great piece to incoorperate into a wardrobe in need of a trendy update. I tend to go trendier with accessories rather than clothing. It seems to be more economical.
Another way to dress like the cool kids is to find yourself a good pair of overalls. Whether on the beach in Cabo or over a black body suit in NYC, I have been wearing these Wildfox Chloe overalls gifted to me via Recycled Consign and Design for the last two years. I love them! Be sure to check out Recycled Consign and Design’s other great items by clicking the link above.
I topped this casual boho look off with Qupid’s haven slide sandals, an ASOS bowler hat and an ASOS skinny scarf. Qupid has so many affordable/chic shoe options for a girl on a budget. Last but not least, I almost always find really cool accessories that amplify any outfit on ASOS.com.
Have a beautiful weekend my friends!
I am so fortunate to be collaborating with a brand I so fully respect. Accessorizing with Wolford is something I do regularly regardless of a collaboration or not. They are hands down the best hosiery brand.
I was first introduced to Wolford while shopping around the streets of Florence. It was a magical fall night in Italy, but with fall comes unpredictable weather. I was wearing a fantastic gray Isabel Marant dress and in desperate need of something to keep my chicken legs warm. Ten years ago my legs were literally skin and bone…then I found pilates (whoot whoot). To calm my goose bump situation, I walked into the local Wolford shop and the rest is history. Wolford’s textiles not only flatter a woman’s body, but they don’t easily snag or run. They may be a little pricier than your normal tights or hosiery, but due to their high quality you won’t be buying them nearly as often.
As most of you know the backpack trend has been on fire for the last several years. I am fortunate to be able to travel quite a bit for work and pleasure. Because of this I’ve noticed lots of peeps traveling with a wide variety of cool backpacks. Not only chic black backpacks, but different colors, fabrics and sizes. I really like this white leather Rian Sotho Mod backpack (comes in two other colors) because the color goes with everything yet still stands out. The size of this Rian backpack is perfect for travel and daily use….not too big and not too small.
Lastly, I am working with a new sunglass subscription company called Ditto. It’s the COOLEST concept!! Starting at $24.00 a month, you can have designer eyewear on rotation. If you’re like me, you’re a sucker for designer lenses…and it’s not always easy to cough up the $250-$1000 per pair. With a Ditto subscritption you can swap out so many different designer sunglass options as many times as you’d like. For example, I chose these Prada black frame sunnies for my trip to Europe. They were the prefect holiday pair, with no strings attached. Now I will be trading them in for something more summery. Even COOLER, Ditto has patented try on technology, so you know what the sunnies will look like on your face before you choose the perfect pair.

Hello lovely people! It’s that time again…..time to freshen up your wardrobe with hot summer whites.
Nasty Gal Andrea Cold Shoulder Top (similar style)
Purefourhundred is a a luxury lifestyle brand that specializes in design, real estate and events. My friends and founders of Purefourhundred Kristina Pluta and Brett Bluth and their team of professionals are excellent at bringing their clients the cream of the crop. Whether it’s glamorous events, beautiful homes or interior design, they have got you covered. For a beautiful night out, be sure to check out their awesome events.
I am crazy about this all white Nasty Gal look. The craftsmanship is beautiful and it’s beyond versatile. I have worn it casually, dressed up with heels or even as a swimsuit coverup. It’s a triple threat and so low maintenance. There is nothing more refreshing than slipping on hot summer whites as the temperatures rise.
Have a fantastic holiday weekend!
