A FEW ESSENTIAL ACCESSORIES ( AND A GIVEAWAY!)








TOP  ||  JEANS  ||  BAG (on sale today! different color but gorgeous   ||  SUNGLASSES c/o ZENNI LA  ||  BOOTS

When I put together an outfit, I never feel like it's finished until I add accessories. I didn't used to be much of an accessory girl, but once I realized how much of an impact they made on my outfit, I was converted.

I don't wear a ton of accessories, but the few that you'll pretty much never see me without are a watch, a handbag, and a great pair of sunglasses.

Zenni Optical recently released their new line of sunglasses inspired by the LA streets and fashion, and now they're some of my go-to glasses. They originally sold just prescription glasses, but I love how they've expanded to include fun framed sunglasses, but you can still fill those frames with your prescription glass. I've told you so many times before that I love basics with a little twist, and these tortoise shell frames have a subtle hexagon shape that I just adore.

The best part about Zenni? The price point is fantastic. And even better...they're giving away a pair to one lucky reader today, up to $150!

TO ENTER: 
- hop over to Zenni Optical's youtube video and watch the short clip they made about this collection. It's all about LA! Now leave a comment telling me your favorite place in California -- where you've been OR where you'd love to visit.

Giveaway is open to US readers only, and giveaway ends in one week on August 31st. Good luck!

THE OUTFIT THAT FEELS LIKE ME






TOP  (similar here)  ||  JEANS  ||  ANKLE BOOTS  ||  JACKET  ||  BAG 

Do you guys have outfits that just feel like you? I don't think there's just one of these kinds of outfits for everyone -- I have a lot of outfits that I put on that feel like me (like this one and this one). But I love putting something together that just feels right, you know?

I sometimes have a hard time pinpointing my own style, but consistent thing is basics with a little twist. My ankle boots are a classic style, but the cutouts make them special and unique. I love a good striped top, and this one has a tie up neckline that makes it stand out. I love a neutral bag with a fun tassel, or a pair of jeans with just enough distressing. They're just the little things that add personality and interest to an otherwise basic outfit!

4 PIECES YOU NEED FOR FALL










created in partnership with Zappos

August always brings Fall Fever for me. It's still super hot, but all of the sweaters and boots are hitting stores so I have it on the brain. So I'm starting to prep for those cooler months with pieces that transition well, and then work through Fall and into winter. 

These are four pieces you should have in your closet for Fall! 

1. Lightweight cardigan. This one is so insanely soft, and also warm but lightweight enough to wear in the evenings on a cool summer night, or on a crisp autumn afternoon. It's also great for traveling or layering! 

2. Light colored ankle boots. If you follow me on instagram, you'll see how obsessed I am with these ankle boots right now. A light colored pair is great for the end of summer, and the cutouts make them easy to wear even on warm days. They would also look amazing with shorts or a skirt (I wore them with a pencil skirt right hereduring the warm months before Fall.

3. Felt hat. A felt hat is a total Fall staple. I love how they instantly add texture and warmth to any outfit. This one is the perfect neutral color and is only $36!

4. Neutral crossbody bag. With all the rich textures and hues of Fall, I like to have a neutral bag that can go with everything. My bag size of choice is always a medium/small sized crossbody bag, and I'm in love with this one. The braided strap and tassels make it unique and fun while still being really neutral and simple. 

What are your must haves for Fall?
