Popping in to say hi on this rare Saturday blog post! I just finished editing my latest video (the last one was in AUGUST!!!!) on my new computer and I couldn’t wait to share it with you. Up until now, I’d been editing my videos on my old Macbook Pro and over the summer it got to the point that it was so clogged up with stuff it had a hard time running – yes, yes I know, I probably shouldn’t have relied on a laptop to do video editing, but that thing was a beast!
Today I’m sharing three ways to style the Lularoe Julia Dress! I was recently introduced to Lularoe by a good friend and former colleague. I love how the brand’s main objective is to help women look and feel their best. I can totally get behind that because, helloooo, that’s what I’m trying to do over here, too (insert raising hand emoji)!
The Lularoe Julia Dress has quickly become a favorite of mine and has been on heavy rotation in my closet for the past few weeks. It’s a form-fitting, midi-length dress with 3/4 length sleeves and it’s seriously one of the most comfortable pieces that I own. One of my favorite parts of the dress is how easily you can transform it into an entirely different outfit with just a few simple tweaks of your accessories.
California may be my current home, but Maine will always be home home. Mainers are unfussy in their style, preferring function over fashion and classic pieces that will stand the test of time. My style has always been casual and has remained true to my Mainer roots.
Today, I’ve teamed up with Old Navy to share an outfit that is inspired by my home state of Maine!
I’m so thrilled to finally be able to rock summer outfits! LOL JK, the weather in SF is colder this month than it was in February and I actually wore TWO jackets to work yesterday. So until San Francisco decides to make up its mind on the weather, I’ll be dreaming of sunnier skies and updating my wardrobe with these five summer trends to try!
The biggest sunglass trend this summer is, of course, mirrored lenses. Combine reflective lenses with a rose gold tint and I. can’t. get. enough! I picked up a pair at H&M recently that I’m so enamored with, but this flat-lens pair from Ray Ban is to die for.
I’ve been loving these cute little slogan tees from Whistles and I can’t wait to add one to my summer wardrobe! It’ll look so fresh tucked into a high-waisted button up denim skirt for a casual afternoon date.
Off-the-shoulder Bardot tops like this one from Topshop are beyond adorable. I’d happily wear one every day this summer with a pair of shredded cutoffs and sandals! You’ll be seeing me in this outfit a lot this summer. ;)
You really can’t go wrong with sheer, peek-a-boo fabric for any occasion this summer! You can dress it down with just a simple tank top underneath, or take it up a notch with a bold color or pattern and a high-waisted skirt for a night out on the town with the girls! I really love this one from ASOS (on sale!). It’s a fashion staple that’s here to stay this summer.
Ummm, how cute is this sporty, retro one-piece from Private Party?! I love the Baywatch vibes and I can’t wait for warmer weather to segue into lazy days spent by the pool or at the beach.
What are some trends you’re excited to try this summer?
In honor of the third official day of summer, I’m busting out my favorite looks for summer in this brand new Summer Lookbook video! Even though it doesn’t get scorching in SF, out in the East Bay it’s been heating up. I’m excited to peel off the layers, put away the jackets, sweaters, and scarves, and unearth my summer clothes at last! One of my favorite things to do is mix pieces from summers past with some new threads.
Featuring an off-the-shoulder top paired with flare jeans that somehow seem retro and current at the same time, a blush eyelet dress with some unexpected kicks, and a denim-on-denim outfit that gives a wink to another decade. Here’s to many lazy summer days and nights to come!
Summer is finally here and I couldn’t be more excited! I’m looking forward to long days, camping trips with friends, impromptu road trips to the beach, and eating veggies fresh from the grill. Summertime… and the livin’ is easy.
In the past few years, I’ve developed into quite the hat aficionado. I love throwing on a jaunty chapeau and a cool pair of sunnies for a look that’s as practical as it is stylish. This pair of Illesteva sunglasses and Janessa Leoné hat make the perfect duo for a balmy summer day.
To finish the look, a casual, striped Nili Lotan tank and my favorite high-waisted jeans from ASOS, complete with ripped knees and an extremely high rise that nips in at the waist just so. After slipping into these jeans, I’m not sure I’ll ever go back to anything else.
