How was your weekend? We had a busy one and I always feel like weekends should be at least three days… Wouldn’t that be a lot more on the fair side?
On a different note, we cannot seem to be able to break up with summer here in LA-LA land. The temperatures today are hitting 101F!! So… I am not putting my sundresses away, just keeping a leather jacket close by in order to be armed with the right attire for hot mid-days, as well as cool mornings and evenings.
This week’s look is exactly as described above–my favorite new red & white floral dress from VIP.com, two-toned pumps, an all black purse, and a leather jacket. Combining the edginess of leather with the femininity of a floral print, bell sleeves and an A-line, makes for a balanced and chic outfit. I decided to stick to three primary colors – red, white and black. I believe each element of each piece speaks to the next–the white flowers of the dress cross over to the white body of the shoes. The black tips of the pumps loop back to the black bag and leather jacket adding to the cohesiveness of this outfit!
Unfortunately, this floral beauty is currently sold out, but I have linked a stand collar A-line floral dress, a red and black tie-neck A-line one and a blush lace V-neck A-line dress that would all look fab with a motto leather jacket and a pair of pumps on a sunny fall day.

Have a fab rest of your week!
Can you believe it is already September? This year is flying by so fast and before we know it Fall will be here! Despite the recent California heat wave, I have started prepping my wardrobe for the change of seasons and have lined up items to introduce you to.
For this week’s transitional look, I have partnered with VIP.com to present to you this sweet, A-line, yellow floral dress. Doesn’t it ooze feminine charm?! It captured my attention with it’s gentle floral pattern combining pinks, whites and greens on a lovely mustard-hued background, which allows the pattern to speak in their soft tones. The cut of the dress along with the ruffled, bow-tie sleeves only add to the ladylike character of this dress.
So what is it that makes this dress so suitable for the next few month:
- The mustard yellow color reminds me of the leaves changing color;
- The dress is lined and perfect for cooler days;
- It hits below the knee, which would make it suitable for early Fall days;
- This floral beauty would partner well with a denim or leather jacket.
I decided to pair my new VIP.com find with lace up sandals, round glasses, black panama hat and black leather bag to give it some boho flavor as I was going to brunch in an edgy neighborhood where most people wear interesting statement pieces! I see this dress as a versatile piece as I would switch out the lace-up sandals with black kitten heels and wear it to the office.

Hope your week has been going great and that you have some exciting plans for the upcoming weekend.
Since we are in the heat of summer and florals are huge during this season I wanted to introduce you to a floral midi dress with a twist, by METISU. I find this abstract pattern to be very artistic and inspiring. The flowers have a beautifully undefined shape and colors that flow from one flower to the other. The pops of brighter red and green stand out from the more muted earthy, tobacco tones and black background. This unusual color story gives you countless possibilities when it comes to accessories. I chose a blue Chanel bag and gold heels, but black, green, red or any neutral toned bag and shoes would also compliment this pretty dress very well.
The crew neck, midi length, and half-sleeve make this dress perfect for work, whereas the slim-fitting, elegant silhouette and side slid perfect it for “play”! I wore it in the office, followed by a performance at the Disney Concert Hall–it suited both occasions to the t!
This dress is excellent for summer as it is from a very light material. It also comes with a waist belt should you decide you desire additional definition in that area. It is also currently on sale for just $60, so hurry in and grab yours or show me what you chose from the wonderful METISU sale going on right now!
