Now that it’s officially fall I’ve been wearing booties and hats more regularly – they’re such an easy final touch that really pulls a look together. These jeans may be the most comfortable pair I now own thanks to AG Jeans – they’re literally the perfect stretchy fit, slightly distressed wash and I love the ankle cut (I’m a little over 5’6 and I usually have to roll my jeans to fit smoothly into booties). I’ve been wearing these Dolce Vitabooties with everything from pants to dresses and the taupe color is so versatile. If you’ve seen me in the last week I’ve likely been in some version of this outfit – its foolproof! Hope you have a wonderful weekend.
I’m usually not one to wear black on black, but this off the shoulder top and pleated skirt is a feminine combo that I love for transitioning into fall. Torn by Ronny Kobo has a several skirt options I’ll be pairing with oversized sweaters and boots as soon as this LA heat wave settles down.
I bought these lace up sandals as my pre-NYFW splurge and have been wearing them with lots of skater skirts and shift dresses. I also love these Sam Edelman alternatives at a great price point if you’re not looking to spend too much on a lace-up shoe. Hope you have a great week!
Hope you had a fun and safe labor day weekend! I spent mine celebrating the end of a great summer with friends and getting some sun. Since it’s officially September I’m anxious to start adding in some fall pieces to my mix, but LA temps are still in the 70s and 80s. A cropped cashmere sweater adds some autumn energy but fits in with my boyfriend denim and fedora hat. I wear my lace-up sandals constantly lately (also loving the mesh look and price point of this pair).
I’m headed to NYC this morning – stay tuned for fashion week looks!
This week is one of the busiest of the fashion year: New York fashion week begins! I leave for the city tomorrow and couldn’t be more excited for the shows, events and more than anything, seeing my good friends in the industry.
Preparing for NYFW is a process – aside from scheduling the week, pulling together outfits is its own beast. I tend to keep my hair and makeup simple during the day and add on more for night events. Loose waves last a couple days and are easily refreshable with some dry shampoo and texture spray. I was lucky enough to have some help from Joico while getting my hair ready for NYFW, and a visit with Joico’s celebrity colorist Denis de Souza. Here are my best tips!
1) Clear Gloss – Stop by your salon and ask for a “clear gloss” over your color. This will give your hair a fresh look, avoid fading, and seal the hair cuticles, which adds tons of shine. It’s an easy way to refresh your hair without coloring it.
2) Go Sulfate-Free – You never know what your hotel will provide in the shampoo department, so come prepared. Using a sulfate-free shampoo prevents your color from fading. Use travel-size bottles to take shampoo and conditioner – for blondes, I recommend Joico’s Color Ensure Sulfate-Free Shampoo and Conditioner.
3) Blow it Out – Bring a travel-size blow-out creme with you to replicate a salon-quality blowout. This protects against heat damage and repels dirt, leaving your hair shinier and cleaner for longer.
