I’m breaking away from the stereotypical hues for fall. Reds, oranges, and neutrals are gorgeous and so perfectly autumnal, but I’m really loving jewel tones this season. I’m dreaming of sapphire blues, amethyst purples, and emerald greens - and I love that I get a vibrant combination from this ruffled, long-sleeve midi dress.
Music festivals are the best excuse to play around with your style and go a little extra. Elaborate braided hairdos with glitter spray? Rhinestones glued to your face? Bring it on.
For the Made In America festival with Abercrombie this month, I put together two looks based on some of my favorite bohemian trends. And of course, I couldn’t resist bringing back my pink ombre hair for the weekend.
LOOK ONE : LAYERS, PATTERNS, & BIG JEWELRY
I love the patches and ruffles and overall pattern of this Abercrombie dress, but wanted to add a casual layer, which I achieved by tying my denim jacket around the waist. Adding two large silver necklaces layered on top of each other made the outfit feel perfectly festival-ready.
LOOK TWO: FLORALS, LACE, & LOTS OF MOVEMENT
I went for a more casual look on the second day of the festival, choosing high-waisted vintage-inspired denim shorts and a lace cami. My favorite piece was this sheer floral kimono, which was perfectly boho and floaty. Dancing around the festival with this flowing around me was so fun!
Thank you to Abercrombie for the wonderful festival experience!

When it comes to snapping content for the blog, I make every effort to be as organized as possible - but even the best plans don’t always work out. While I was in San Francisco earlier this month, I had planned to shoot this outfit over at the Palace of Fine Arts Theater - a really pretty structure in the Marina District. When I arrived to meet the photographer, we realized that the entire area where we were going to shoot was closed off for a TV show that was filming. We shot a few photos from across the pond, but we ended up getting the majority of the shots you see here just by wandering through the nearby neighborhoods. The Theater area being closed off may have been a blessing in disguise, since we ended up finding the cutest SF homes with flower-covered facades when we were forced to shoot elsewhere.

The first hints of fall are in the air and that means I’m just about ready to jet off somewhere warmer (ha!). For those please-don’t-let-summer-end getaways, I’m loving Pitusa’s line of beach-to-street attire. The concept is pretty perfect for packing light: toss one of their dresses on over your swimwear and you can seamlessly go from lounging on the beach to exploring whatever city you’re in. Grab dinner at a cute restaurant in town - no one will think you’re wearing a cover-up. Their Eve ruffle dress with the deep-V back is a personal favorite (and something I think would be perfect to wear either as a guest to a destination wedding OR for new brides on their honeymoon).
I'd like to introduce one of the most flattering outfits I've ever worn.
I'll follow up with that by saying that I'll never wear something I don't feel totally comfortable in - but this cute little denim (!!!) set by Clayton takes flattering co-ords to a whoooole other level. And while I'm currently wearing this all-white ensemble before Labor Day, let's just say that I'll be breaking some rules during the last few warm weeks of September. This set is too cute to stop wearing after Labor Day!
