IT COULD ALL BE SO SIMPLE


Sometimes it's as simple as black and white, Birks and big sunnies. I've been seeing white skirts pop up everywhere lately and I'm so happy I scored this one last fall. When the weather gets chillier I'm going to start wearing it with a chunky black sweater and black loafers but I also won't shy away from Birks when the temps drop. They still look great with skinny jeans and a crisp white button down for Fall.

Currently In Kauai so pardon the short but sweet post. Stop by Wednesday for another chapter in "What I Wore" for Los Angeles Magazine. XO A

Denim Dress


Dashing to my friend and fellow blogger Shauna Miller's book signing Tuesday night at the Grove. Afterward we had a fun girl's dinner and came up with the admittedly genius phrase "Be down...or get out!" which basically sums up all the amazing girls I'm friends with.

I fell in love with this denim dress at Painted Bird a few weeks back when I was shopping for FYF but worried it skewed a little too mormon pre-school teacher, I couldn't resist wearing it anyway. As my nearest and dearest know I have always had a weakness for a denim dress and actually wore one to my first day of high school!

FYI I am cracking up in the photos below because I tripped, almost fell on my butt and apparently wear heels so infrequently I can barely walk in them. Yay adulthood!

**Buy the Penny Chic Book and find out why I am following rule #7. It's a great gift for any young woman on a budget!

GLAMP CHAMP


"If you love something set it free" as the old adage goes but when I love something whether it's clothes or a person I just want to hold on for dear life. These boots and high waist shorts have been some of my heavy hitters as of late and they were the perfect packing items for our trip to Big Bear over labor day weekend. Summer camp with my peeps was a ton of fun as usual. Enjoyed lazing around LA this weekend and celebrating all the Virgos in my life. So many birthdays so few Saturday nights. Also holy shiz have you guys watched Utopia on Fox?? It's some highly entertaining trash TV if I do say so myself.

TRANSITIONING


Floral dresses are a great transitional item because you can wear them with a black turtleneck or cropped sweater, tights and a denim or leather jacket and booties come fall. 




Here's a secret. I love vintage clothing. Vintage clothes are unique, good for the environment (reusing is a form of recycling) and you can find a perfect floral dress like this one for under 50 bucks. The thing that stops me from wearing a lot of vintage on the blog is that I know it's a bummer for you guys because you can't shop it. The very last thing I want to do is give my readers shopping blue balls. I hope one day to take all the amazing vintage pieces I've scored and recreate them in a new line, that's been one of my fantasies for awhile and hopefully it will become a reality soon. In the meantime I picked out a few great floral and affordable dresses for you, just click on the pictures above. x AC

GLAMPING ESSENTIALS

I just got back from the annual trip to Big Bear and now my friends and I have a fantasy of buying a summer camp to redesign and vacation at. I really love shopping and packing for specific occasions and events. I love the way it feels to have a few new items for every trip, it genuinely increases my enjoyment of the experience. Shallow? I don't think so. When you look good, you feel good and all it takes is a few new pieces.

TIED BACK


I'm sad that it's almost time to say bye to rompers and straw hats but I'm also getting excited for big scarves and the return of leather. I've seen some really great patent leather shoes out for fall at stores like Zara and I couldn't help working these from Shoemint into an end of summer outfit.

FYF FEST



I didn't actually end up wearing this outfit to FYF because I stepped outside and it was your quintessential L.A. hot-as-balls weather. Instead I wore a vintage dress which I'll feature later this week but I liked this outfit so decided to post it anyway. Clare V's mini sac is the perfect festival bag because it doesn't interfere with dance moves. These boots worked out pretty well too.
