Falling Back on White

Sweater: Margaret O'Leary; Embellished Tee: Mom's Vintage, circa 1980s; White Jeans: United Colors of Benetton; Studded Flats: Steve Madden; Bag: Forever21: Bow: Forever21; Hoops & Sunnies: Nordstroms

I can't stand fashion rules, especially the no white after Labor Day rule. 
I love wearing white, so effortlessly chic. 
There are definitely ways to wear white throughout the year,
and here is a fall version!

Fall Layers

Floral Cut Out Dress: Forever21; Polka Dot Button Up: Madewell; Polka Dot Tights: H&M; Green Oxford Shoes: Banana Republic; Leather Hand Bag: Vintage Coach; Ring: Vintage; Leather Belt: Vintage
I love the warm weather that comes with the summer months, 
but I'm ready from some cooler fall weather, 
which means one thing: layers!
I love layering clothes
because it's so interesting to see the different kinds of textural combinations that you can create. 
The weather is (obviously) still beautiful in California, 
so there was no need to layer a jacket. 
Instead, I layered this floral cut out dress over my staple polka dot button up, 
finishing the look with a pair of polka dot tights. 
Can't wait for fall to officially hit...
I have so many jackets that are dying to get out of my closet!

Leo Forever


Army Green Coat: Margaret O'Leary; Leo Print Dress: Sway; Sandals: Steve Madden; Color Block Clutch: Madewell; Jewelry: Vintage

I cannot believe it's already mid September. Crazyyy. 
Just got this leo printed dress from Sway
and I'm in love with it. 
Leopard print is always a good staple to have on hand. 
A very special thanks to my sister,
 who took these pics.

Vintage Dots

Magenta Cardigan: Forever21; Polka Dot Blouse: Vintage; Geometric Shorts: BDG, Urban Outfitters; Leather Bag: Cole Haan; Shoes: Chucks; Navy Sunnies: Nordstroms 

My sister, who works in costume design, is visiting at the moment. 
She gave me this awesome vintage polka dot blouse from one of the sets. 
I love the collar on this blouse! The collar has an awesome shape. 
Once the fall season hits, it will look really great layered under a dress.

Anchoring Down the Mix & Match

Blouse: UK Style by French Connection, Sears; Anchor Pants: Forever21; Oxford Flats: Urban Outfitters; Necklace: Stella & Dot; Stone Bracelet: Vintage, Circa 1960s;  Sunnies: H&M; Bag: Vintage Coach
As I said in the last post, I'm obsessed with mixing prints. 
Sometimes it is fun to be a bit bold with it: 
color blocking or pairing obvious pattern combinations can be a bit bland at times. 
These anchor pants are such a great fit and the print is too cute. 
The color of the pant looks great against the green hues in the blouse. 
Also, I am absolutely in love with this vintage bracelet, which belonged to my great aunt. 
Each stone has beautiful details, which have been carved into the stone. 
When I walked out of the house, I thought this might have been too much, 
but after looking at these pictures, this might be one of my favorite looks yet.

Dots on Dots on Stripes

Polka Dot Cardigan; Polka Dot Blouse: Madewell; Striped Skirt: UK Style by French Connection, Sears;  Flats: Steve Madden, TJMaxx; Necklace: Forever 21
But really, I am kinda obsessed. 
This skirt is such a steal-- only twenty dollars!
I love the French Connection line at Sears, 
honestly one of my favorite places to find good quality and trendy clothing.
