Vintage Eyelet for fall

Hi there! 

I am still hooked on the eyelet thing, and I find eyelet tops for fall very vintage inspired and boho as well as slightly preppy. I love this one I found on Etsy that has a turtleneck and a frilly cuffed sleeve and ties in the back. It’s a little folky as well! To modernize the look I styled it with a great skinny jean and an oldie but goodie over the knee riding boot and my little Ferragamo bag.  

I’ve also really been loving the bow scrunchie trend lately and since eyelet and lace are girly and vintage I also wore my Free People floral bow scrunchie in my hair to keep the look soft and girly:)  there’s so many ways to style this trend though, I’d even edge it up with a moto jacket or keep it comfy in a grandma oversized sweater or cardigan!

Hi there! 

Have you noticed eyelet and lace are having a major moment? I love this vintage girly look and in my photos above I showed how you can wear it on the beach or a night out! I would style the long sleeve top and skirt (both from my summer Hamptons obsession store: Loveshack Fancy) with an ankle bootie and leather jacket for fall, and just the way I did at the beach in Miami recently for warmer weather. The tank in those photos are from a small boutique in NYC!  White and brown are a fave neutral color palette of mine for fall, and I just got an eyelet long sleeve top with collar that I’m going to wear under my brown fringe suede jacket with jeans and brown suede booties!

Since my last post I’ve been busy settling into my new home in LA. I’m no longer based in NYC and am now in LA! It’s so crazy and definitely an adjustment but I am loving it so far. Thanks for bearing with me as I’ve been MIA getting settled and traveling for work. If you have any suggestions on what to see me in maybe a trend you’d like me to style please don’t hesitate to comment it on my IG or below on my blog here!

Hi there! 

Coming out of resort wear season and right into end of Spring / early Summer means sporting a cute sun dress. My favorite wardrobe staple sun dress is a white lacy number that you can accessorize with.  

In this look (my dress is Express so it was a steal) I pair my white lacy halter dress with my Mexico tan, a great nude wedge (I went with my Arezzo ones from Brazil recently)  with nude handmade clutch and a gold shell earring (both from a boutique in Brazil). I also paired a boho colorful robe (also a steal from Forever21!!) over the dress to add color and texture and a tropical vibe since I was vacationing at a resort in a Puerto Vallarta, and at night on the marina there can be a little breeze.

A close-up of the texture and color of the boho robe and my shell earrings paired with the halter dress.

A white dress for summer can transition from the beach to going out at night, and you can't go wrong with a neutral palette, it matches absolutely everything. Add on your accessories to style it your way and have a little more fun with it. The best part about a tan is you need little to no makeup because to me natural beauty is so much more beautiful than an overly done-up face. I do love to play with makeup, but a beachy look is effortlessly beautiful and it requires less maintenance. For example my new lip obsession is the Burts Bees tinted lipstick line. It moisturizes with just a hint of color and leaves your lips soft. That and a pair of sunnies (with plenty of sunscreen) is all you need on your face at the beach!

Happy Spring:)
