seventies inspo

Am I the only one completely freaked out that we’re already talking about Labor Day plans and the State Fair and fall things?! Where has summer gone? This look I’m sharing with you today is the first “transition” look I’ve posted this season! This blouse is lightweight and still works for the Texas heat, but you could also pair it with skinny jeans and OTK boots when the temps cool off.

Pair it with a suede skirt or tuck it into black high-waisted pants and it would be perfect for the office. But, it also looks great with flare jeans like I wore it here, or cut off denim shorts!

the oversized shirt

oversized-shirts oversized-shirts oversized-shirts oversized-shirts oversized-shirtsPrior to finding this oversized button-down shirt, my go-to outfit this summer has always been a simple off-the-shoulder dress and sandals. This shirt though has quickly been a game-changer for me!

I regularly throw it on with cut-offs to run errands, or wore it with white skinny jeans to a lunch I went to recently. It’s perfect for dressing up or down and will also transition perfectly into the Fall months!

when to choose quality over quantity

Happy Friday eve ya’ll! So by now you probably know me well enough to know I am all about a deal, and saving money. I’ve always wanted to be a Chanel purse, Prada sunglasses type of girl, but that’s just not me. Maybe in my next life, but for now, I strive to be on trend and feel my best, without breaking the bank.

Early on this summer I was on the hunt for white jeans. I tried on (no joke) at least 7 pair that were all around the $50 price range. I hated every single one. They didn’t fit right, or they were too ripped, or they were super thin and I knew I wouldn’t get more than 10 wears out of them.

I slightly felt like the heavens opened up when I tried on this pair of white jeans though. They are definitely more than what I usually spend on jeans, but the fit was perfect, the material felt like real quality, and I knew I’d be wearing them for summers to come.

And this top – let’s talk for a minute about Bella Dahl. I’m sure you’ve seen some of Lo’s posts about them – but we are both obsessed. The top I’m wearing here isn’t your typical denim top. Because it’s from Bella Dahl, the quality is truly amazing, and you would not believe how soft it is. BD is known for creating ultra-soft women’s essentials, with outstanding quality. Each and every item is hand-dyed, treated and quality controlled in Los Angeles, using only the finest materials.

Also, I got this entire look (top, jeans, and birks) from St. Bernard Sports! A few years back I always thought of this store when I needed new snowboarding gear or a Patagonia fleece. However, it has quickly become my one-stop-shop for anything and everything. They carry high end fashion lines, sporting goods, LAFCO candles, and literally anything your heart could desire. Make sure you check out my instagram to see how you could win a $100 giftcard to their store!

denim dress: all day everyday

The amount of times I’ve worn this denim dress in the past few weeks is borderline embarrassing. But, no shame. I love how this dress is perfect for running errands, Sunday brunch, or date night. Dress it up with wedges or go for the Cali cool look with slides. I’m obsessed!

denim + tassels

Two things in the fashion world I have a difficult time ever saying no to: a denim dress, and anything involving neon pink. I bought this dress + scarf on separate occasions but actually love them together! This scarf is super lightweight and goes with way more than I thought it would!

Here’s the great thing about denim dresses: you can wear them everywhere. They can be office-appropriate or “Saturday at the park”-appropriate. They are perfect for traveling, great to wear to a wedding shower. I think every girl needs one in her wardrobe!
