Summer Wrap Tops

I'm ready to wave good-bye to summer and welcome fall soon with open arms. Before I let go of this sunny season, I must say that wrap tops were (and still going strong) such a huge hit across fashion retailers as it is undoubtedly the biggest trend this year. Cinching around the waist with a tie, it's easy to flatter the figure no matter what shape you are, and it creates such a beautiful silhouette. I love the different colors and prints that I've seen with wrap tops, and easily enough the striped style take home as a favorite for me. It's absolutely classic and screams summer with its nautical essence. It probably comes to no surprise that mixing this top with red accessories (or in my case a backdrop) is the perfect marriage to complete the look. 

What do you think of the wrap top this past summer, and did you ever add it to your collection?


Strapless H&M Jumpsuit

That's something so effortless and easy about wearing a jumpsuit. I've started to lean more towards this style than dresses as it's super functional and versatile. This pretty number is from H&M and flatters the waist simply with the added tie. 

Naturally, when I see stripes I instantly think nautical, so pairing the jumpsuit with a red clutch for that extra pop of color to elevate the theme was definitely my inspiration for this look. Although the strapless style has a bit of a formal vibe, it can be dressed casually for everyday style or for a get-together with friends for brunch. 

Hope you're enjoying your week so far!

Embroidered Jacket

As I was rummaging through old outfit shoots, I stumbled upon these looks that I shot earlier from this year. I remember how much I loved this embroidered jacket and initially thought I would not get much wear out of it since it's so different than anything I had ever own. Fast forward eight months later, this jacket has been worn at least 30x time already and is my most beloved piece I've purchased this year.
The oversized style yet intricate intricate details of the embroidery embellishments truly make it a one of a kind jacket, and the best part of this jacket is the price tag- I got it on sale for $50 at Topshop! 

What has been your favorite purchase this year?

Little Black Dress and Mustard Purse

I'm sure that you've heard the saying- "You can never own too much black", which I strongly stand by. My closet is pretty much doused in black everything- casual tops, blouses, jeans, dresses - you name it! However, what I truly lack in black is actually professional or appropriate styles for the workplace. I know it's probably the easiest thing to own since black is elegant and very sleek, but I've always struggled to find one that works well with my body type and isn't too boring. 

Meet this wonderfully tailored black dress by Zara! I ran into this gem a couple of months ago and love the simplicity of the style with the voluminous sleeves. It's a great length for work and can easily be transitioned for drinks with friends later in the evening as well. Always a win win combo when you find a dress that can do both. 

How do you like to wear your LBDs?
