I started this outfit with the stripe pants and top being the base. I couldn’t help but add a contrasting shade of blue to tie in my denim. It’s easy to be afraid of adding too much but sometimes more is better.

One of the hardest things to get rid of for fall is the breezy summer dresses. I completely understand! Especially since it’s so humid here it’s kind of hard to imagine wearing a sweater or boots. So instead of layering up I decided to do a fall colored palette for my makeup.  It switches the typical natural summer look with something a little more bold and smoldering.

I can’t believe it’s almost the end of September… Fall starts on the 22nd and I couldn’t be more excited. It’s always a later start for me since I live in the south… the humidity always overtakes my love for Fall fashion.

I’ve been seeing a lot of slip dresses. I found this Betsey Johnson one while thrifting and I loved the pattern.. Feminine and bold. I wanted to contrast the bright yellow with cobalt blue shoes. When I go matchy matchy with an outfit I usually bring in a complimentary color to calm it down.

I’ve been madly thrifting and collecting new pieces. I found this dress and handbag while at an estate sale in Little Rock. The lady who owned it had a fabulous collection and impeccable taste. I even found some furniture pieces while I was there.

Here’s one of the other pieces I found at the same sale.. I love the back detail of the chair. I’m thinking If I can get a beautiful velvet to pull some color out of the back I can fix up the seat with it. I’m not sure the age of the chair or anything so if anyone knows I’d love to hear what the age is. P.s…sorry for the messy room.. I just snapped this picture really quick.

Have a great week! 🙂

It’s been so rainy here in Arkansas lately. It’s always an awkward time in between hot humid days and rain because you never know what to wear. 

I opted for black denim shorts and top to make it a little breezier and paired it with a longer trench. This kind of look can really show off your legs and is a fun casual outfit. Obviously I had to add a pop of color with my bold heels to dress it up a bit. 

What’s your go-to outfit for hot rainy days? 

Have a great rest of the week! Rain or shine. 💛

This style of drop waist dress is reminiscent of the 1920s. I wanted to keep the romantic feel but offset it with chunky bohemian jewelry.  Don’t be afraid to layer because you can always take off what doesn’t work. It’s better to play with your look – it will help you find YOUR personal style and not what’s on trend. 

I found these Manolo Blahnik heels while thrifting in California this past week for $2.95!! They were a perfect fit for this look. I can’t wait to use them for fall!
