I’m sure you’ve heard from so many people that this amazing Shopbop sale is happening now!

You can get 20% off any orders under $500 OR 25% off orders of $500 or more! This includes full priced items and sale items! I am shopping on it right now so I suggest you take a look too! But before you do that, here are some of my picks! I’m definitely looking to purchase things for the Fall and Winter so this would be a great chance to do that!

 

T-shirt and Slip Dress

I have been a big fan of wearing a simple t-shirt under a simple slip dress. It can’t get anymore easy than this! Sometimes, I feel like a slip dress may be too revealing for the occasion and a sweater or cardigan is still a little too heavy. SO putting a t-shirt underneath gives me the right amount of coverage without making me too warm! 🙂

This day was especially hot but we attended an ice cream themed day at Smorgasburg so I had plenty of ice cream to keep me cool. Although I do remember having sweat trickle down my back most of the day….is that too much information?

Black Romper

I never wear rompers because I sometimes find that they don’t fit me properly and they make it slightly difficult to use the potty. Have you noticed that you pretty much have to take the entire thing off in order to use the restroom? I’m not sure if there’s a secret or trick to using the restroom in a romper that I don’t know or something?

I received this one as a gift and it really made me feel so relaxed and comfortable on a scorching hot day! The off shoulder details are super pretty and the lightweight material made it so cool and perfect for the weather. I love that I felt like I was in PJs the entire day, so I’m thinking I might need more rompers to add to my closet!

FIRST VIDEO!!! August 2017 Lookbook

I made my first ever Lookbook video on Youtube and I’m so excited to share it with you guys! I’ve always just posted pictures of my outfits on blog posts and decided to take it a step further by creating videos. I feel like this is a great way to showcase the outfits better and kind of bring them to life. Personally, I love watching Lookbook videos so that I could see how the pieces are worn and move. It’s also a great way for you to take a peek into my life and what I do when I’m out and about in LA! 🙂

Pink Kimono and Heeled Mules

Kimonos have been all the rage lately and I’ve kind of always had this one in my closet that I’d throw on every once in a while if I want something light. The long line kimonos are trending right now but there are times when I want a shorter/regular cut. This one in particular is a silky soft finish in a light pink.

I threw it over my usual white t-shirt and jeans uniform and paired it with my light grey heeled mules. This is why I love wearing a simple t-shirt and jeans all the time, because when I throw on different accessories, it can completely change up the entire look of the outfit.

I spent the day just having brunch at Bread Lounge and then heading over to the American Tea Room in the Arts District for some yummy matcha tea! Nothing beats a relaxing Sunday morning out!

Runa Teas

Everyone that knows me knows that I love teas! I’m not much of a coffee drinker but get me a refreshing tea or chai, and I’m all set! Runa Tea is a great refreshing option and I love the story behind their company. Runa teas and energy drinks are all natural, so they are naturally sweetened and caffeinated. They are made of guayusa leaves, which come from the Amazonian forest and tended to by Kichwa farmers, who are the indigenous people of the Amazon. The teas not only protect and preserve the Amazon rainforest, but also provide support for independent farmers. Guayusa leaves need the shade from the hardwood trees in the Amazonian rainforest, so in order for it to thrive, the Amazonian rainforest has to thrive as well.

It comes in a few different flavors and are very smooth with a subtle hint of sweetness, which is perfect for my palette. I don’t like overly sweet drinks, so this works out perfectly for me! My fiance tried out one of the energy drinks because he works night shifts sometimes and he was raving about it! He said it was really tasty and definitely gave him a boost of energy for work.

Thanks Runa for sponsoring this post! 🙂

Wedding Guest Outfit

I’ve attended about 4 weddings already and have a couple more to go this year! Each wedding is different and it’s good to know what type of venue it’s going to be at, the terrain, etc so that you know what to wear. Here is an outfit I wore to a wedding that was located pretty much in a nature park (forest) and then the reception was at a restaurant. Because we were both outdoors and indoors, I made sure to dress appropriately for both. I got this dress from Missguided and paired it with ankle strap heels but the heels were thicker, making it easy for me walk around and DANCE!

I’ve come to love midi dresses because they look very put together and sophisticated. I like the way they fall on me and I don’t have to worry too much about the dress being too short.

Summer Maxi Dresses

Maxi dresses are perfect for hot Summer days because it’s something you could just throw on and walk out the door! I love it because it’s like I’m wearing PJs or a mumu out and it’s perfectly fine! It can be difficult for petite girls like me, but like I’ve mentioned before, I actually just buy ‘midi’ dresses and they make perfect maxi dresses for me! I come in at a whopping 4’11” so I’m on the shorter end of the petite spectrum. You are considered petite if you are 5’3″ and under. For my height, I find that midi dresses generally fall right at my ankles, so they are maxi dresses for me! If you are a little taller than I am, it could run slightly higher for you. This is where you should know your measurements and pay attention to the length in the product description.

I particularly like this one because it has really cute pocket details and the color is this gorgeous dusty pink mauve. I’ll probably find some more ‘maxi’ dresses for myself to wear this summer, so below are some that I’m thinking of! 🙂
