I’m sorry I fell off the blogosphere but with summer ending, my final semester of graduate school beginning and starting my traineeship and seeing clients, blogging has taken a back seat. But today, I felt inspired thanks to Shoedazzle sending me these gorgeous oxblood pumps with embellished details.
The weather here in Los Angeles is still sunny and bright but I am feeling the fall color palette already, hence my wine based outfit. I apologize for the not so create images, but I didn’t have time to scour a location and thankfully my mother was a doll today taking my pictures.
I am such a sucker for high-waisted shorts and pumps together. I think it just adds a little bit of edge to such a chic sheek combo. Naturally, a pop of color has been a staple for me lately and these pink shorts have been one of my favorite pieces in my wardrobe for the past few months. I was happy to finally snap a quick pick on my iphone wearing them, so i apologize for the very below average pictures!
I’m not going to be one of those bloggers and make posts about Fall quickly approaching, because to be honest, it’s still 89 degrees here in California and to be perfectly frank, I’m not going to smother myself in cashmere and pretend I’m actually wearing Fall attire just to blog about it. So, in the meantime, I hope you all enjoy my summery outfits still because I am surely still enjoying the summer weather!
I’m looking forward to a lot of new projects coming and brand partnerships, so tune in for a big shift with my posts and a lot more fun!

Today’s outfit was inspired by the seventies with a little rock n’ roll. I love to mix up bohemian prints with leather and edgy details which is why the booties I’m wearing worked perfectly for this look. I’ve never really found a pair of black booties that I had to have, but these Shoedazzle ones just shouted at me. This blazer’s print truly inspires me so much, it has a nice bohemian feel but also a unique ethnic feel which is why I love it so much.
I tried something a little different today: palazzo pants. Normally I always feel like a clown when I wear them, but something about the print of these intrigued me. I figured, why not. I paired the pants with a turtleneck crop top because I feel it added a little bit of a vintage feel.

I’m such a sucker for color. When I received this skirt and top I originally wanted to wear it as separates but then I put them together and fell in love with the boldness of it. It’s definitely a very bold outfit for me, but it was so much fun to shoot this look. I’m starting to think my love for all black is fading…just a little.
Summer is almost over so I’ve found myself leaning toward fall fabrics, like leather. This leather skirt has been in my closet waiting for me to wear it again. The only reason I don’t wear it too often is because the boyfriend hates it. I’m so in love with the crop top/pencil skirt trend, I just had to do it for today’s post!
I don’t typically go for rompers, but I couldn’t the resist the flower power of this one! I love the girly print and paired this romper with some nude heels that had a little personality to add some edge. I can’t believe it’s almost August and that it’s almost Fall! I hope you’re all having an amazing day <3.
I’m still on the hunt for the perfect LWD (Little White Dress) but I’m completely in love with ivory. Until I can lay out and get some color too, Ivory gives my complexion a little color, so I’m not too sad I haven’t come across my LWD yet. I love the simplicity of the tunic and it’s one of the most comfortable items I own. It’s light and easy and can be worn with a basic ballet flat, or a fun lace up bootie like the one’s in today’s post.
Oh, and want to hear something amazing? I’M DONE WITH SCHOOL TODAY! Well…I have to go kick my psychopharmacology final at 3 pm first, but then…a whole month off- from school. I started work this month at the counseling center and I’m looking forward to finishing my training and seeing some clients. Once I start, the mini dresses and crop tops might be scarce on the blog! But don’t you worry, I’ll still add some edge to my more polished looks. In the meantime, I’m going to post as much as I can.
