but first

Boy oh boy is indian summer kicking in right about now. This whole week I've been mostly staying indoors and if I do attempt to make it outside I've got an iced cold beverage glued to my hands. This time around I tried a local coffee shop in LA for the first time. Alfred's Coffee on Melrose is one of the cutest shops I've been to. I'm majorly obsessed with the visual's in their space and even more obsessed with their amazing iced lattes. I am a big fan of things that look good AND taste good. Two thumbs all the way up! I hope you all are staying nice and cool, I'm impatiently waiting for the start of fall..

peachy keen

I've always wanted a "naked dress," you know.. the one Carrie Bradshaw famously wears in Sex in the City. My prayers were answered when Jewel Toned sent me this blush colored mini. This is the dress that looks good on every figure! The ultimate curve hugging, shape forgiving, bodycon mini. I think a naked dress is just as essential as an LBD. When you get sick of your go-to LBD, why not try a naked dress to shake things up a bit? It's such a cool and unexpected choice. I love that it is casual enough to wear with sneakers yet dressy enough for a night out. I'll definitely be taking it for a spin for a night in the city. Soon.. very soon.

bright lights, big city

It's not very often that I shoot at night, hell, it's not very often that I even go out at night. I'm much more of a stay at home with Netflix and cuddle with a bowl of ice cream type of gal. But every so often I'll doll up and hit the city with my girlfriends, and it's always a good time. Last week I met with Ruby in Little Tokyo for some bar hopping to release some steam from a long work week. It was a nice warm summer night and we both showed up in bodycon dresses. Remember when I wore this dress in the daytime? All it takes is switching out the boots to a pair of black heels to transform it to the perfect night look. That's why I always say accessories are the perfect investment. Accessories make or break the outfit!
