I absolutely love pinstripes. I feel like they come across as super professional, or even masculine, and that’s my favorite thing about them. What might originally be thought of as an 80’s power-suit, can now be worn in a hip and modern way.

 

For my power suit, I looked no further than one of my favorite brands, Ganni. Their feminine sensibility brings the fun back to fashion, and this suit doesn’t disappoint. I paired my straight-leg trousers and blazer with a rolling stones tee, silver pumps and a box bag. My favorite thing about these Ganni pieces? You can wear them together as a suit, or as separates! Throw on the blazer with jeans and a tee or bodysuit, and the trousers would be pretty with a bright sweater, collared shirt, or lace blouse. The options are endless!

Pre-Fall Hodgepodge

Well, it’s still hot as hell down South, but every day I’m willing Fall to arrive. Regardless of if temperatures are obliging, I’m starting to make the seasonal transition with my wardrobe. That also means I’m starting to lust over a new batch of items. I’m talking turtlenecks, some earthy tones, and a little bit of comfy/cozy. This week’s Lust List is a hodgepodge. – but I love all of these items and am pulling the trigger on them one by one. Enjoy!

 

Aviator National Sweatshirt & Pants: Cozy and bright separates for those Fall. nights curled up on the couch. I’m such a fan of Aviator Nation and this pair. Doesn’t disappoint.

 

Commando Bodysuit: These Commando bodysuits are my absolute favorite. I have a racerback and sleeveless racerback, but its time to get one with sleeves for the cooler weather!

 

Chocolate Brown Mules: The most gorgeous shoes that will be so beautiful with plaids and other earth tones this Fall! And look at that shoe shape…so sexy!

 

Sandalwood Shower Gel: A light but warm scent that is actually amazing all-year-round.

 

Faux-Tie Necklace: A little bit of glitz and glam that will be great with jeans, a tee and a blazer, or a more dressed-up look.

 

Faux Shearling Slipper: Another pick for the comfy/cozy category. These feel so soft and warm, but won’t overheat your feet with the open toe. I particularly love this oyster color!

So Fresh & So Clean

For me, Summer means white. I love the way it looks on my skin, and it just feels so fresh and so clean.

 

Ever year when warm weather approaches, I go on a little spree and buy a couple of new white dresses for the season. This year, this dress was one of my first purchases, and I haven’t stopped wearing it since it hit my wardrobe. An easy, breezy dress from Zara, I loved the oversized fit, the pockets, and the ruffled asymmetric hem. I’ve worn this with my new pair of gladiators for an all-white look, as well as some heels to make this feel more elevated.  In this instance, I went casual with pops of blue in my accessories. I threw in my new Dior clutch as well as a lapis-lazuli necklace from Mejuri. This outfit is one that you’ll see me wear again and again!
