Over maternity leave, I went full Marie Kondo. I’ll blame it on the fourth trimester–a time when I was on a constant quest to find a sense of normalcy in my sleep deprived, laundry-heavy, baby snuggling days. One day while Sadie was napping, I felt such an urge to organize. I threw all of my clothes into one big heap on my bed and kept only the items that brought me the most joy. Everything else HAD to go and lets just say, I ended up donating a lot! With two pregnancies so close together, it felt liberating to finally clean out my closet to make room for new looks that actually fit.
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 know that Labor Day has come and gone but recently, whenever I reach in my closet to start putting together an outfit, the color white keeps calling my name. I’ve found myself layering all different shades of white over the last few weeks because I love how minimalistic and simple it looks. I know this breaks all of the classic fashion rules but since I live in LA, I’ve decided white works all year-round and we get a free pass.
Today’s outfit reminds me of something out of the show Miami Vice and I had a lot of fun wearing it. I styled the whole outfit around one of my favorite black and white tank tops of the moment that’s inspired by the Mean Girls quote, “you go Glen Coco.”
I am always looking for the perfect office-to-night looks and this blazer works perfectly because it’s so versatile. This fall, I’m loving neutrals–especially for the office. Today, I paired a bunch of neutrals together–from my favorite Jimmy Choo Abel Pumps to my gray office-appropriate crop-top and my little black wallet.
