Orange is the new black. Here’s me getting out of my comfort zone and embracing the newest favorite color of the season. A huge thanks to Tobi for letting me rock this piece. Bright colors (actually, just all color in general) are completely new territory for me, but I’m a huge sucker for anything that screams, “statement, statement, STATEMENT!” Link for the skirt can be found here:http://tobi.to/dxQ.

Living for layers in the scorching streets of DTLA. Maybe it’s too early to shoot fall looks, but I’m tired of summer already. Can Fall come any sooner?!
On another note, I’ve been eyeing these Alexander Wang mules for a quite a while now, and was super bummed they ran out of stock at my local Nordstrom. Besides, they were way out of my “college girl + part-time job” budget. One day, I decided to visit The Rack on a whim, and bam…they they were, last one and a little over $100 PLUS an extra 25% off! But wait, it gets better! That plus my employee discount (yes, I work at Nordstrom) and a couple Nordstrom notes I stocked up on, and I got them for a whopping $70. Can a get an AMEN!?
There’s nothing I love more than a good B&W palette. Simple and chic, and it’s a relatively easy to pull off. I started off with an all black look: black lace bralette, black lace shorts, black boots, and a black wide brimmed hat, then added a couple white accent pieces to give the outfit more ‘POP.’ The boyfriend vest adds a great silhouette to the feminine lace pieces underneath it. I also tied my grid blazer around my waist to play off some “sophisticated yet grungy” elements into the mix. I’m all about neutrals and I guess lack of color? What I love about B&W is the longevity of each piece and its ability to work into every single outfit you own. It’s not new; everyone knows that black and white go with everything.

Shades of white and black took a massive takeover my wardrobe this summer. The basis of this outfit starts with an all white look. I’ve been loving the look of white-on-white lately because although black is sleek, to pull off an all white fit is bold, and adds a sense of freshness especially during the summer. With that, I guess it’s safe to say that you can save your next trip to the Hamptons; you don’t have to be invited to Diddy’s “All-white” party to pull the look off anymore. Like any same color-on-color combo (and I cannot stress this enough) texture is your best friend! Here I am wearing just a regular old cotton crop top over my newest closet baby, a neoprene skirt. Just to toughen the look up, I wore my trusty leather moto and tossed on my black leather backpack to accentuate more structure in the outfit. How do you do monochrome in the summer? Until next time, my summer lovers! Jacket & Skirt H&M/Top Dailylook/Shoes Zara/Backpack Thrifted
