4 Ways to Transition a Summer Dress into Fall

I live in Arizona and even though the seasons do change, we really don’t pack up our summer clothes and take out the winter clothes. It’s much more about layering different pieces in order to adapt to the weather changing. Check out this week’s video on how I transition a summer dress into fall using this season’s hottest trends:
  • Style 1: Pop of Color
  • Style 2: Sweatshirt & Felt Fedora
  • Style 3: Leopard & Heels
  • Style 4: Chambray & Motor Boots

Note to self: I really need to smile more in these style videos. Being the model is still taking some time to get use to.

I got the new J.Crew catalog in the mail the other day and couldn’t resist sharing my picks for Fall. They are hitting all the trends for the cooler weather: leather, leopard, camo and felt fedoras.

6 Ways to Wear a Maxi Skirt

There was a lot of interest on the original post I did for multi-ways to wear a maxi skirt, so I decided to get a little creative and turn it into a fun video for you all. I mentioned that this skirt is great when traveling light but not until I was putting together the outfits for the video did I realize how great it really is! You can create (at least) 6 completely different looks with just a handful of items.

On a side note, I feel like I’ve been MIA from the blog lately, but the plan is to get back on the bandwagon next week. Things have been extremely busy the last month, so I’m taking a break and ending work a little early today to head to LA to celebrate my 30th birthday with some of my favorites. I promise to come back refreshed and with a bunch of new content (and a little older…)! Happy Friday!

Maxi Skirts

I pretty much live in maxi shirts during the summer; they keep you looking stylish even in the heat. My go-to outfit is pairing it with a tank top and statement necklace. These skirts are so versatile, which make them a perfect piece when traveling light. Here are some other options on how to wear a maxi skirt for different occasions:

  1. BBQ/Summer Party: White tank & denim vest
  2. Date Night: Add a statement necklace
  3. Day of Shopping: Simple gray t-shirt & flip flops
  4. Office: Sleeveless dress shirt, belt & wedges
  5. Girls’ Night Out: Leather jacket & heels
  6. Traveling: Chambray shirt

Chambray Shirt

Chambray Shirt

I’ve gotten a lot of requests for more style features, so here you go!

I’m currently obsessing over the Chambray shirt. This All-American classic is a staple in my closet and can be mixed into any style. Go classic like Ashley Olsen did by just tucking it into black skinny jeans or more edgy by layering it underneath a vest and pairing it with chunky gold jewelry. I also love wearing this shirt as a jacket, its light weight and perfect for those summer nights.

Thank you pinterest for the hair inspiration this weekend.

1. Divide hair into 4 sections, separating the front from the back on either side.

2. Braid each section starting, 4 braids total. Note: the braid that will be across the top, start the braid higher up, closer to the roots. 

3. Pull the end of one braid to the beginning of the next braid, going in the same direction all around the head

4. Bobby pin the end of each braid into the start of the braid beside it. Be sure to hide those bobby pins so that it looks like one braid all the way around!!

Dating A Royal

It’s happens every couple of months, I get obsessed with a particular color and want to incorporate it into everything from my wardrobe to my home decor. Right now I can’t get enough of Cobalt Blue (probably influenced from the high I still have from the royal wedding and that my sister is studying abroad this summer in Greece). For a few weeks I have been searching for a blue dress within budget, yet to find one but Reese Witherspoon and Eva Mendes (both in Stella McCartney) and Emma Roberts (in Michael Kors) make stunning appearances in theirs. I was able to get a quick fix when I got a pedicure this weekend and found the OPI color Dating A Royal (immediately ran to the beauty supply store afterwards to make sure I had the color for home). While on my search for a dress, accessories are acting as a quick fix. I picked up the shoes below from H&M for only $34.95!
