June gloom is in full effect,  but I’m not letting it stop me from wearing flirty summer dresses. Blue is the hue of the season, and I’m working it into my wardrobe with this printed powder blue dress.

A Venice beach day calls for an easy dress I can slip on and look polished. Currently (aka always) I’m into styling sweet pieces with items that have a bit more edge, so I added on a tiny string choker and a raw edge straw hat to made the outfit feel less prim and proper. Fact: this little string choker one served as the draw string closer to a fancy shoe bag, but it’s now living a second life as a key piece of jewelry currently in my rotation… after all, I’m all about a simple DIY at the end of the day.  read more

Romantic Victorian Ruffles

I’m not sure if I’ve ever felt more… glamorous. I saw this dress and it instantly took my breath away. I’ve always been a sucker for anything lace. Add on a high low hemline, tassels, a ruffle neck, and lace-up detailing down the front and I’m basically dead. The Jetset Diaries knows how to make a good dress, that’s for sure.

I wanted to channel a Victorian feel, playing off the gorgeous, dramatic bib neck, so I decided to go with a structured, panel blazer. Something about the sharp blazer against the bohemian dress felt fresh and exciting to me. read more

8 Date Night Outfits

Just in time for Valentines Day! I’ve rounded up my favorite date night looks from casual to glam. And of course, I had to include a few cheeky nods to the holiday with pretty reds and pinks.

LOOK 1: Casual

The look above is ideal for a casual date — like brunch, a movie, or drinks! Red and pink look so playful together, and what better day to wear them than Valentines Day! Try a silk red blouse and a printed skirt, then temper the look with a black vest and chunky, block heels.

Black Magic

romwe 3

The thing I love about fashion is that you can use clothes to transform into just about anyone. I typically have a repertoire of things I usually wear: blazers, button ups, trousers and neck scarves – but sometimes, it’s fun to dress outside of the box. I’ve always said that I’m a “moody” dresser and I let my attitude, feelings, and spirit dictate my attire. Today, I guess I was feeling like … a vintage magician? 

I saw this dress on Romwe’s website – which you can shop right here – and I knew I had to have it! I’m always drawn to anything blue/navy, and I was totally feeling the vintage mauve print. I also love the fit! Bell sleeves are super on-trend with the ’70s and I think the skater skirt silhouette is pretty flattering. read more
