I’m loving these balmy Summer evenings!  As much as I am looking forward to chunky sweaters and booties I love being able to wear shorts and heels for a night out!  With a top as bright as this one from Topshop I decided to keep the rest of the look very neutral.  I also seem to be addicted to this versatile cognac bag from Neiman’s, it’s a great travel piece and transitions so easily from day to night!  What is your go to Summer night out look?

PS – Thanks to one of my photo obsessed girlfriends for helping out with photos!

This Dex Clothing dress is one of my most favorite finds lately.  I was browsing the racks at Crimson Boutique at The Riviera and came across this little gem.  I loved the simplicity of the cut, the great embroidered detail and the back (that sadly wasn’t photographed).  I’m already dreaming of this with booties and a moto jacket in the Fall….

PS – I apologize for the grainy photo quality, the day got away from us and it was dark before photos were taken!

I just love a simple and timeless look.  A great jean jacket, simple white tank, and black maxi are a few of my wardrobe staples.  In anticipation of Fall’s cooler weather I threw this look together for an afternoon of lunch and a random stop for some dipped ice cream….totally not on my diet but worth the splurge!

I am getting a little excited for Fall and the clothes that come with cooler weather….boots, chuncky sweaters, and of course, flannel!  I wore this look to dinner the other night and all of a sudden I felt like I was back in college, living in Abercrobmie, American Eagle, and Hollister.  While my early 20s are happily behind me the love of this all American staple remains!

A few years ago while working for a boutique I bought this black Michael Stars convertible skirt (plus my sandals and Gucci glasses).  I love the idea of a piece that can be worn multiple ways, especially if I’m spending some money on it.  I have worn this maxi countless times as a skirt but had yet to try it as a dress.  The length was a bit weird for me originally but by belting in and giving the top a little billowy effect it fixed the awkward length and gave the dress some definition.  While this exact skirt is no longer available Michael Stars always has a few convertible options available.  You can shop the current collection HERE.  I seriously love how easy this piece is especially to when packing for a long weekend.  It takes up little to no space, doesn’t wrinkle, and can be dressed up or down…perfection!

Dollstreet Doll: (adj) A woman who is confident, intelligent, glamorous, fun, classy, can laugh at herself, sexy, sweet, a little on the wild side, nostalgic, up for anything!

I am beyond excited to finally share the photos from a recent shoot I was fortunate enough to be a part of!  With a strong following for her custom made, vintage inspired aprons Dollstreet designer and founder, Lindsay Moen, set out to launch a line of retro playsuits and pin up inspired swimwear.

Pulling inspiration from the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s Lindsay felt that Palm Springs was an ideal location to shoot her “Keys to Paradise” campaign and official launch.  With her classic red Mercedes, Cherry Pie, playing a starring role Lindsay, a former Seattle Seahawks cheerleader, and her dolls shot 4 looks ranging from festival ready suits paired with cutoff shorts and bold jewelry in the desert to glam skirts, crop tops, and playsuits at the gorgeous Ingleside Inn.

I personally am obsessed with Lindsay’s use of bright colors, unique designs (fringe, criss-cross tops, ruffles) and creativity (old band tees make fab monokinis)!  I can’t wait to get my hands on one of her custom designs soon!

All orders for bikinis, monokinis, and play suits are custom and an official website is still forthcoming but in the meantime there is no shortage of fabulousness on the Dollstreet Instagram!

Summer Breeze Makes Me Feel Fine…

Happy Monday!  It has been a hectic few days for me between traveling with family, planning an end of Summer trip, and keeping up on work! My crazy schedule will finally start to slow down in the next week and I might actually be able to squeeze a hair appointment in!  

My roots are a little out of control at this point, hence, the Panama hat!  As a girl who used to get highlights ever 3-4 weeks this year long stretch without color has me cringing every time I see my roots!  Although the color is not my favorite I have to admit my hair is sooooo much healthier lately!  Not only have I been laying off the harsh hair color, I have also limited my heat styling and use a coconut oil & vitamin E treatment a few times a week which are really helping me get the length I want!

I adore a girly look any day of the week!  This white dress is a favorite of mine that has been hiding in my closet for a bit and I finally decided that it deserved to be worn again!  I love the back detail (Alice + Olivia always provides a little special something) and the Marilyn Monroe-esque style of the dress.  Instead of playing safe with the wide navy blue belt it came with I opted to mix it up with a little animal print and love the look!

Alice + Olivia has some adorable dresses for a great price point at Neiman Marcus Last Call that I can’t get enough of.  Be sure to check them out HERE and remember, each store has a different selection of great styles!

I’m a sucker for a great transition piece that can be worn causally or dressed up for a meeting.  This particular blouse is a few years old but remains one of my faves thanks to it’s lightweight, super soft fabric.  It was a staple in my work wardrobe for quite sometime and I now favor it with flowy skirts, cut off shorts, and skinny jeans.

This particular blouse is from Express and they have SO MANY adorable options that will easily transition from the warm months into those cooler Fall days!

PS – Thanks to one of my best girlfriends for playing photographer for me!photo 1 photo 2
