Knee High Boots

Dress: Reformation [Similar] // Socks: Nordstrom [Similar] // Boots: Gucci // Earring: BaubleBar [Similar] // Bracelet: Library, BaubleBar [Similar], Gorjana [Similar]

There’s nothing I like more about fall than the clothing. LA has surprisingly been getting colder in the past couple weeks to the point where it’s appropriate to layer. During the day it’s still fairly warm out so I can get away with a dress like this Reformation one. At night it cools down drastically to the point of needing a sweater, or even a light jacket. I’m absolutely loving knee high boots for the fall. They’re perfect to throw on with a dress, or even a pair of jeans. This outfit is my current go-to for fall in LA, and also my way of channeling my inner Kylie Jenner.

Teal Dress

Last week my coworker and I went to a BCBG warehouse sale in Downtown LA. There were so many fun dresses and this was one of the items I got. I’m absolutely obsessed with this dress. It’s so flowy and fun for the summer heat here in LA. I’m also currently in LOVE with my new Dior ‘So Real’ sunglasses. They seriously are the coolest sunnies I own, and were definitely worth the splurge. I love throwing on a dress and cute slip-ons for a pulled together look whether you’re going to work, a date or dinner with friends.

Floral and Leather

I’m normally not the type of girl to rock a crazy pattern. However, lately I’ve really been enjoying dressing in some patterns to spice things up. I’ve been loving this dress I got at a Show Me Your Mumu sample sale a few months back. Not only was it a steal, but it’s also super cute! I love wearing this outfit on a night out with my friends. It’s the perfect mix of casual yet chic.

White Out

white outone // two // three // four // five // six

As soon as it starts to get warm outside, my color palette changes from pretty much black to white. I’ve literally been only buying white off the shoulder shirts for the past two months, so I decided to branch out and look at some dresses. These are my top six picks for white summer dresses. I love these options because they can be dressed down for a casual day or dressed up for a night out.

Spring Sleepwear

spring sleepwearIt wasn’t until recently that I started caring about what I’m wearing to bed. Usually I just throw on an oversized Penn State t-shirt and a pair of sweatpants and call it a day. More recently, as the weather is starting to warm up (although not so much in LA) I’ve been looking for more comfortable yet chic spring sleepwear. Here are some of my top picks that I am currently coveting.

1. Eberjay Pajama Set ($110)
2. Eberjay Pajama Shorts ($50)
3. Skin Robe ($170)
4. Equipment Silk Pajama Set ($390)
5. Heidi Klum Intimates Pajama Set ($100)

Collective Passions Collab!

I’ve known Annie for most of my life. She’s my best friend Catherine’s big sister, and she also used to be my babysitter. I’ve always looked up to Annie as a sort of big sister to me because I’m an only child (ya know, only child syndrome). I was so excited when she started a blog called Collective Passions. It’s such a beautiful site and is inspiring to see how it has been growing. Annie contacted me the other week and asked if I wanted to do a collab with her featuring Chloe and Isabel jewelry. I obviously was so thrilled I had to say yes! Not only am I obsessed with this new necklace, I’m even more excited about how the post turned out. Check out my featured post on her blog here!

PS: Shout out to my friend Briggy for taking these pictures of me on our way to brunch!

It’s my birthday! I’m turning 24, and that makes me one year away from being a quarter of a century old. CRAZY. As I’m wrapping up my week, I’m starting to pack for a girls trip to Vegas. We leave tomorrow to celebrate my birthday, and I can’t wait! I know for sure I will be taking these Quay sunglasses with me because I’m OBSESSED, like Mariah Carey would say. They come in both black and gold, and I almost want to go back and purchase the black one as well. To be honest, this whole outfit will probably be in my suitcase. It’s the perfect day time outfit whether you’re lounging around the house or going out to brunch (or even to celebrate a birthday!).

Pink Floral

There’s something about hot pink that just instantly puts a smile on my face. That being said, when I found out there was a giant pink wall on Melrose, I just had to take a trip. Victoria, our friend Becca and I went for an impromptu photo shoot last weekend (see Vic’s post here!). Melrose is definitely one of my favorite streets in LA. Not only is it known for the 90210 spin-off, it’s also an amazing place for shopping and food. If you’re ever in the LA area definitely go check out this iconic spot at the Paul Smith store on Melrose.
