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.
Since moving out to Los Angeles, I’ve increasingly become a fan of wearing all white all year round–even after Labor Day. It’s so warm here and I think white is sleek and classic–it would be such a shame to tuck my whites away for half of the year.
I’ve always been enamored by Old Hollywood-inspired looks and when I saw this striped tee for just $9.90 at Zara a few weeks back, I was excited to add another piece of vintage inspiration into my wardrobe. It reminds me of something Audrey Hepburn would have worn in a movie like Roman Holiday and I like its comfy, roomy cut.
Our amazing wedding photographer surprised me with one of the most thoughtful gifts a recent bride and new wife could ever ask for: a personalized gold locket with our favorite wedding photo on the outside and engagement photo on the inside. When I opened this necklace for the first time, it brought me right back to the happiest day of our lives and I couldn’t wait to wear it.
