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.

Beach to Street

Vacation Outfit Inspiration | @maevestier

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).

For The Love Of Jumpsuits

Pink Tibi Jumpsuit | @maevestier

Jumpsuit | Bag | Earrings c/o Baublebar | Shoes

What is it that makes me love jumpsuits so much? Is it just the fact that it's basically a dress but with pants? I'm not sure - but what I do know is that it can be a struggle to find one that works with my 5'9" frame. I can feel absolutely horrible in a poorly-fitting jumpsuit, but give me one with the perfect proportions and I feel like can take on the world.
This particular piece from Tibi really hits the nail on the head. It's not completely body-con top to bottom, but it also doesn't lack any definition. The ruffled hemline and waist-cinching tie sash make for very pretty details - and don't even get me started on that COLOR.

Head Over Heels

Patterned Midi Skirt | @maevestier

Top c/o Alice & Olivia | Skirt c/o & Other Stories | Bag | Shoes c/o M.Gemi (use code "MAEVES40" for $40 off!) | Earrings c/o Baublebar

At the end of July, I attended a little launch party for M.Gemi, an Italian shoe company I'd been stalking on Instagram for the past year. This is actually the exact top and skirt I wore to the event, and while I was there I discovered these gorgeous kitten heels: two-toned, comfortable, and with the chicest little bow detail. They work so well with this colorful patterned midi-skirt and ruffled top, but I also threw them on with ripped jeans to grab coffee yesterday morning and really loved the combination.
Thanks to M.Gemi, for offering my audience $40 off any purchase! Use the code "MAEVES40"
