Keepin Cool In Lace

Outfit 1 Sorry it's been a hot sec since I've last posted, things have been super hectic on my side of the world. But wanting to keep you Fashionlainers in the loop with all things going on, today's post is bringing you (and me) back in action and with one of my favorite materials-- lace! Today's outfit was inspired by getting ready for a cute brunch. Wanting to dress up, stay cool (since it's so hot) and wear comfy shoes (because my feet were not feeling a heels kinda day), this breezy lace crop top along with this long royal blue skirt with slits (that I'm obsessed with) were perfect for the situation. Because who can't get enough of a crop top- long skirt combo?! Pairing them up with some cute white studded sandals and the perfect lace headband that tied in so well and looks like it was made for the top, brunch was definitely handled, Fashionlaine style.

Ballet Life

I always love playing a game of dress up, so whenever I get the chance to wear something cutesy, I get excited with all of the possibilities. I went to a cute day brunch over this weekend and needed to dress for the occasion. Sifting through my closet to find the perfect Saturday brunchy attire, I came across my American Apparel tutu skirt that I've barely had the chance to wear. Seizing the opportunity to play a mini ballerina for the day, I could live in this outfit forever.

Summer On The Go

In a time where the weather in LA has changed from rainy and foggy days to scorching nights where it's 85 degrees at 11 PM, you need some clothes in your closet that easily adjust to the rapid changing temperatures and welcome and embrace the summer. I always love to have quick pieces that I can grab easily for a day out-- no-brainers that will allow you to adjust to the forecast changes and make you fit in well with what's going on around you. I used to buy all my purchases with a requirement in my head of needing to know what I could pair that piece with, with items already in my closet. But over the past few years, my purchasing mentality has changed-- buying items that I love on their own, and then leaving it to me later on to work backwards and configure pieces that worked well together. This shirt from H&M as well as these pink/peach shorts from Forever 21 that I had bought both randomly in hopes of being able to pair with items in the future both turned out to be great options and perfectly matching together. Throwing in my essential neon jewelry into the mix to complete the summer on the go ensemble, no one would expect that this super simple styling and outfit was whipped together within seconds.
