style story: dress with jeans

dressandpantsI’ve been wearing this dress on the regular, to meetings, to the pool, on lunch dates, and to the huntington gardens. So basically everywhere, and to get even more wear out of it, when there’s a bit of a chill in the air, I’ve been throwing a pair of jeans on underneath. I didn’t think I was the jeans under a dress kind of girl but turns out I am… and I’m kinda into it.

style story: off the shoulder

spring pastels // off the shoulder top // sarah sherman samuel Summer is a coming and off-the-shoulder tops have reached the mass market, like reached and exploded all over it. You might remember when I bought this same top in blush last year for our Mexico trip, and while I was browsing around Topshop recently I came across it in this gorgeous shade of citrus/yellow/green and I just went ahead and got it again. I couldn’t help myself, I still love the structure of it and the silhouette (they also now have it in Salmon, Orange, Light Blue, and Ivory).

I met up with Heather Kincaid, who is the talent behind these photos, in West Hollywood and you would never know this bougainvillea and cactus are just in some random alley we found on our way to a juice bar. Kind of a perfect compliment to the summery pastels.

Now for the serious talk…. Are you pro off-the-shoulder or anti?

Here’s what I’m wearing on those rare days that I do leave the house at night.

my (bump) style: winter whites at 29 weeks

winter whites // bump style // smitten studioI wore this dress for Thanksgiving dinner, a daring move since food tends to miss my mouth lately and land smack dab on the belly, but it made it through the entire day unscathed. It also made for a very comfortable stint on the sofa while recovering from the turkey coma, turns out sweater dresses are all good by me.
