Phil and I are back in LA after our incredible baby moon in Maui and it already feels like it was all a dream. We’re so thankful for our time away where we were able to take a breath, recharge and enjoy as many beaches (and infinity pools!) as possible. Best yet was sharing our baby news with everyone while we were away and we cannot thank you all enough for your kind words. We can’t believe I’ll be six months pregnant next week (on Thursday to be exact–not that anyone is counting!) and we can’t believe how quickly time is flying when there is so much more left to do before baby comes!
Just before temperatures soared over 100 degrees in Los Angeles this week, I wore this all black ensemble. When in doubt, my go-to outfit is often always black–which isn’t always the best idea in the heat of summer. That said, I love dressing up black jeans with a black blazer, tank and heels year round because this look is so versatile and it never disappoints.
If you’ve been following along for a while, you’ll know that I love drawing fashion illustrations–especially of dresses. With every piece that I finish, I’ve always wished that I’d be able to take the project one step further–being able to construct my illustrations into garments I could actually wear. I was really excited to finally be able to do just that with today’s dress.
I was so excited to attend a friend’s wedding last weekend but I couldn’t figure out what to wear until the last minute. I breathed a huge sigh of relief when I happened upon the LA-based vintage boutique, The Way We Wore and scored this amazing 1950’s LBD. I had walked past this boutique many times before and although I had stopped to stare at the amazing vintage gowns in its window, until last week, I never actually had a chance to go inside.
I am so excited for Memorial Day weekend–is it Friday evening yet? This week has been really busy but it’s not going fast enough! Outfit-wise, I’ve been loving shades of nude recently. I would usually pair today’s skirt with a white tank but instead, the nude tank was calling my name because it felt a bit more unexpected.
