As the weather warms up, so does my wardrobe, and I am loving all things TJD (The Jetset Diaries) these days.
I styled this white lace dress with a simple white lace choker [super steal found on Nastygal.com], and added pink lipstick and these rose gold shades [Linda Farrow] to throw a little color into the outfit. The lovely circus rose compliments of Visual Lyrics flowers didn’t hurt either…
Throw on a simple pair of nude wedges to keep the legs long and you’re good to go… welcome to warmer weather 🙂
I’m sure by now you’ve seen them everywhere… but I am in love with the spring “statement sleeve”. There’s something about the trend that brings out femininity and regality all at once. Truth be told, these sleeves just make me feel fancy… and who doesn’t love that?
All of this is why I made this blouse [Lovers & Friends LA (still available in select sizes), or try a similar low cost version here, here, or here] my outfit of choice to say goodbye to Southby with a little Sunday morning brunch on Rainey street (and a must-make-pitstop at the fashion blogger hotspot LiketoKnow.It mural).
Styled with a clean pair of white jeans [Paige Denim – available here] and a simple pendant to keep the blouse the focus. Topped the look off with this fun clutch [Kate Spade – now on sale on Kate Spadeand similar styles available to rent at Rent the Runway!] and clear lucite heels to elongate the leg.
Sad to say goodbye to this year’s SXSW, but can’t wait to sport more of these trendy sleeves as we head into spring!
As Southby week continues to rage on, so does the influx of people, events and of course, style selections.
Heading into SXSW music, I like to update my look by moving to an edgier, more “concert-goer” place, so I can properly mix and mingle with the music loving crowd that is *slightly* different than those that are here for Interactive.
I like to take a statement piece and throw it alongside some of my go to basics in order to quickly and easily look ready for the show.
For this outfit, I grabbed this statement bodysuit I snagged at the Nastygal sale (RIP OG Nastygal, but you can still shop their site under new ownership!), and paired it with a go to black maxi [mine is Lovers & Friends LA; similar styles available at Revolve here, here and for an even edgier look try here] and pair of black booties [Rebecca Minkoff – now on sale here]. I threw on my FAVORITE little black bag – the appropriately named Saint Laurent Blogger Bag in black (equally cute, but slightly more affordable black crossbody available here by Rebecca Minkoff).
When I shot, weather wasn’t permitting (thanks to Austin’s oh-so-predictable weather…), so I added the booties for warmth, but they can also add an edgy touch to a look by pairing them with a maxi. (Note that you want to be sure you’re proportions are still on and you’re showing the right amount of skin; I recommend a maxi with a slit like the one I’m wearing here). This look can be easily converted in warmer weather with a tank style bodysuit and gladiator flats.
You can pair the whole ensemble with a good black floppy hat (I just spent too much this month – standard me – and had no money leftover for the hat…)
Hope all you Austin visitors are enjoying Southby… now I’ve gotta get to the show myself… see ya next time.
