Berry Layers




As much as we do not want to admit or even think about, fall is right around the corner.  However, the beauty of the transitional period of weather is the fabulous mixed you can do with your summer and fall wardrobe to put together an eclectic look.  A summer maxi layered with a plain black tank and a jean vest is the perfect look that can be transitioned from 75 degree weather to 60 degree weather since the layers are so relaxed and effortless.  The introduction of berry colors such as Essie Plumberry and the gorgeous Clarin’s lipstick shade in Aubergine.  The studded Michael Kors cross body and the ECHO Black Studded wedges make the perfect statement for the “almost-fall” look, along with gold accessories such as GUESS’s Chase gold-tine watch pictured above.

How are you mixing your summer and fall pieces?




Party Dress

This weekend we celebrated my big brother’s 30th birthday party.  He is not 30 yet, but will be on Wednesday.  It made me think, oh how time flies by!

Knot Your Average Top

I have always loved floral prints and when I found this sheer top that knotted on the bottom, I had to have it.  it was $15 at Pac Sun, where I also scored a 50% off bathing suit (joys of buying your bathing suit in July!).  I paired it with these comfy black shorts from Banana Republic and some wedges. 


Striped Maxi

As the last weekend before August, I am trying to cherish the last few days of the hot days and flowy clothing before fall comes.  This week, I rocked a diagonally striped tangerine maxi with nude wedges and a straw beach bag along with Burberry sunglasses. I found the fedora at Target for only $11.  My puppy Zoey of course wore her white rhinestone collar.

The Colors of Summer

Summer is all about feeling fresh & colorful.  A few changes I made this summer were cutting my hair (see below) and changing up my nail polish pretty much every other day just because I can!
