HOW TO STYLE VINTAGE POLKA DOTS

TGIF! Finally posting after a few weeks of madness on our end that has precluded me from being able to do it all. I had to surrender and take a tiny break from writing which was so not easy!  Naiya had pink eye, Phil had the flu, then both of our families came to town.  It’s been a few weeks of craziness but I think we’re finally going to be able to come up from air this weekend. Sharing the latest and greatest with you today: a vintage-inspired look I’ve been living in. Absolutely in love with this polkadot top with an oversized bow. Sharing all of the details below.

MADEWELL COLLABORATION YOU CAN’T MISS

Happy Monday! We spent the weekend celebrating Phil’s birthday with our little family. This year was so much more fun than last year because we don’t feel as insanely sleep deprived as we did with a newborn! I remember that simply keeping our eyes open last year to sing ‘happy birthday’ felt like the biggest task. This year, we had a lot more energy and I loved being able to focus on my hubby who has become the most amazing dad. Excited to jump into a new week in one of my favorite fall dresses. Sharing where to snag it, a collaboration you can’t miss and how I styled the look below.

BOYFRIEND BAND TEE

Topping off the week with a comfy casual look that I borrowed from Phil’s closet.  When this Foo Fighters band tee shrunk just a tad in the dryer, Phil said that I could wear it.  I have now “borrowed” it for a few weeks and it’s become one of my go to looks–especially on weekends.  Since this tee was one of Phil’s favorites, it’s perfectly worn in and soft and I’ve already styled it in a number of different ways.  

JARDIN

I love finding little pockets of Los Angeles that make me feel like I’ve traveled far away.  I pass this beautiful home on my morning runs everyday that looks like a French Chateau. Its walls are covered in ivory and there are beautiful gardens surrounding it.  My outfit today was inspired by this backdrop.
