Post Labor Day Whites

I for one love getting into themes, especially when it involves my full wardrobe attention and focus. So as the old saying goes "you can't wear white after Labor Day", you sure can bet that I was trying to pack in every white on white on white themed outfit I could before this past weekend was up. But to be honest, once Labor Day passes, I kind of let that old saying go and wear whatever I want... which will probably include a head to toe white outfit (throw in a beanie or a fur vest to make it more wintery). And really, why shouldn't you? As my favorite self-created personal motto goes "be what you want, wear what you want." And that definitely includes wearing some white in the winter. And as Drake's famous saying goes #YOLO.

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.

Polka Dot Swoons

You know when there's that article of clothing you're practically obsessed with that you do one of two things to? Either A) you wear it like every other second because somehow that shirt or skirt is the only thing you suddenly have in your closet and is the only thing that goes with everything you own. Or B) you keep saving it because it's so perfect that you don't want to just pair it with any old combo and are waiting for the right moment(s) to debut it. Well for today, point B is definitely what has been going on with my obsession with this polka dotted number from one of my all-time fave brands, Crowned Bird. Such a cute, whimsical and fun pattern, cut, and look, I always have so many places that I want to wear out this top to, yet none seem perfect enough for the occasion.  Pairing it up today with a Viento ear cuff and cutesy white skater skirt and heels, there's no way one doesn't swoon over these polka dots.
