Maybe I’m a little late to the game but bodysuits are my new obsession. They’re right up there with easy boyfriend tees, so I’m stocking up on them at the moment. Nothing sexier than throwing a fitted white bodysuit like this one with cute jean this summer. Studded sandals during the day, lace up heels at night. No brainer. My uniform this season!
I’m in the middle of revamping my entire wardrobe, and I’m building it back up with basics. I’m obsessed with basics – cotton tees, jeans, simple dresses, bodysuits… I could fill my closet with just those 4 things, in a million different neutral colors. The trick is learning how to style basics without being blah. That’s why I love this denim dress by Calvin Klein. It’s a staple button up shirt dress, but the color of the denim is unexpected, making it a little more elevated than your average denim dress for summer. I styled it with black accessories, to add a little contrast and edginess, but I love that you could also wear this to the beach with casual sandals. Going to be living in this during summer for sure!
Hello earthlings! Summer is just a week or so away, but you certainly wouldn’t know that in LA these days. It’s been taking the whole “May Grey” and “June Gloom” thing super seriously, and I’m ready for some serious sunshine ASAP so that I can get my Malibu beach days going. In the meantime, it’s been a good excuse for me to wear some of my warmer, transitional pieces, like this oh-so-comfy olive sweatshirt from ASOS. I made it a little more summery and not-at-the-gym appropriate with bright white accents. This white denim skirt makes the denim skirt trend a little more modern and less 90s. Plus you can’t go wrong with a studded bag and Adidas Superstars! I’m always a summer denim fan but I love this white update.
My name is Emily and I’m addicted to mom jeans. This newly discovered addiction happened when I decided to buy an updated version of my favorite pair of ASOS jeans (black high waisted with ripped knees), but in a lighter wash and wayyy higher rise. It’s so funny that the once heinous trend of the 80’s and 90’s that our moms wore to showcase their butts in the most unflattering of ways (visions of pancakes evoked here) has now become super sexy and modern for the ladies of today. Is it just that our butts are more perky these days (thank you, squats), or are the jeans themselves just cut in a more curve-friendly way? I don’t know, but I’m into it. I don’t think there was a single day last week that I didn’t wear these bad boys, and with this look I decided to go for a casual-yet-not-so-casual day to night feel. I cannot recommend investing in this style enough – trust me, your bum will thank you.
This look is pretty different for me. It’s sort of.. I want to say.. preppy? In a weird way? I don’t know, something about the nautical stripes paired with the camel makes it feel super classic and traditional to me (which totally isn’t my usual look, but I’m digging it). I guess you can’t always live in skin tight black outfits, right?
I’m also giving this keychain pom pom thing a try. Love that this one is kind of edgy – black with silver hardware makes it feel not so girly to me. I rarely go for tailored pieces like this blazer but as I get older I’m starting to understand the importance of investing in staples. When you get in a weird style mood and want to change it up, you can on a whim. Voila!
