Styling Challenge: the Tiered, Drape Dress

Dress, Necklace, Shoes, Clutch

Every once in a while I order something online that is completely out of my comfort zone, a challenge. During ShopBop’s recent 30% off sale items I pulled the trigger on this tiered, drape dress that was on clearance. I typically don’t go for such loose fitting clothing, nor do I gravitate towards blousier tops, but I took a chance and have quite a bit of fun thinking about how I am going to style it. Above are just a few items i’m wishing were in my closet to accompany this piece.

I’ll be sure to give you all updates on how it looks/fits soon! Have a great weekend xo

Styling Your Boyfriend’s Sweater


J Brand high rise jeans, Lacoste men’s pullover (very similar), Hunter “Huntress” wellies, Prada sunglasses, J.Crew bracelet

When you’re inside doing laundry all day for yourself, and you run out to dinner, you wear your boyfriend’s clothes. Or at least I do. This was the exact scenario yesterday and the result was a really adorable grungy style with some girly touches that I loved. Much to my boyfriend’s dismay.


One note I wanted to make is that Cesar typically wears a L or XL in men’s clothing, making his garments at least 2 sizes too big on me. To keep the fabric at bay and make some shape I opted for my high waisted jeans and tucked the front end in. This kept it from looking like a big square hanging on my frame.



The back didn’t hang too low or cut across my widest part, which was another key. I also added some girly details like this sparkly bracelet and red lips.



I actually really love this style and am looking into more oversized, albeit women’s, sweaters to continue styling like this. What are your thoughts? Yay? Nay?

Denim on Denim on Denim


Gap jacket (ancient, similar here), J.Crew chambray, Paige jeans, Ann Taylor flats, H&M necklace (old, similar), Prada sunglasses

Denim on denim… on denim! Crazy, I know. I had an urge a few weeks back to wear all of these pieces and decided to make a few tweaks in order to wear them together, in a flattering way. I opted for straight leg jeans (in lieu of skinny or flare) to keep proportions even on the botton and buttoned the two front buttons of the jacket for shape.



Apologies for wearing these sunglasses in literally every post. I’m so obsessed! They are so perfect worn with everything that I can’t seem to let them go.



For added interest with this outfit I rolled my sleeves and added a bold gold necklace to draw the eye upward. I opted for basic makeup but a bold lip to keep the attention up top.



In other news, i’m thinking of selling a few pieces from my wardrobe including these flats. Would anyone be interested in purchasing? I want to gauge what you all think before I post them on Pose or sell them here. Let me know in the comments below!

Morning in Sag Harbor, Hamptons Style


Nordstrom skirt (similar), J.Crew shirt (unique collared version here), Sam Edelman sandals, Prada sunglasses

This last weekend couldn’t have been more perfect. Cesar and I flew to New York to celebrate my brother’s wedding and had an absolutely amazing time. The venue was beautiful, held in South Hampton and the weather couldn’t have been more wonderful. On Friday morning we had a few hours to kill so we took a little drive to the nearby town of Sag Harbor. Filled with quaint shops and beautiful waterfronts, we loved exploring and strolling down the street.

It was hot that day so I wore my most simple skirt and nautical t-shirt to take in the sites. My trusty Sam Edelman sandals provided breathability and support for the walk.





In the most adorable general store we found Sag Harbor made soda! Orange being my favorite, we had to pick one up. Complete with a straw and story from the shop owner.


With my brother’s permission, I will be posting some Instagram photos to tide you all over until the official wedding ones are released. It was such a beautiful wedding and I can’t wait to share!
