Edgy meets Romantic

Ruffles and ripped up denim? Yes please! Pairing romantic with edgy pieces is a little more unexpected. While they may seem like opposites- they attract.

I’ve been on a budget lately and have been LOVING all of the pieces I have found. While I tend to buy more premium denim, I found the most perfect, high-wasited pair at Forever 21. And they’re only $29. They fit like a dream.

Because of the edginess, I toned it down with a romantic ruffled cold shoulder blouse, also from Forever 21. The light pink color and chiffon fabric is perfect for summer, and I am also a huge fan of the ruffle cuffs.

I think pumps pair perfectly with this outfit. Mine are old from Zara, but I’ve linked a similar pair here.

My fringe earrings are on sale now at Saks Off 5th for $14! They are also lightweight and go with everything,

Finally, my go-to bag for everything is this one by Vince. I have been getting into all things brown lately–and I literally carry this bag with everything. I found this at my local Saks Off 5th, but linked a similar one here from Nordstrom that’s under $50!

Happy summer shopping and styling!

Fall Transition

   
    
   
I can already taste the pumpkin spiced lattes, hear the crowd cheer of a football game, and feel the cool crisp breeze….ok so I’m dreaming a little bit…

But fall really is right the corner! It’s the time where we ditch the bright summer colors for rich earth tones and replace the sandals with booties. It’s FALL Y’ALL!

This outfit is mostly items I already had in my closet, since most fall styles are just now hitting the stores (plus it’s SO hot here in Florida that I wouldn’t be caught dead in cashmere right now…even for a blog post! 😝).

My white blazer is from Zara. Yes, you can wear a white blazer year round! To me it’s the perfect transition piece. Find a similar one here.

I paired it with faux leather shorts from Free People from many seasons ago (buy similar here), a silk tank by Rory Beca (new and available at LaLa Couture-call to order), and heels by Schutz

The leopard foldover clutch by Clare V is one of my favorite purchases for fall…it’s super roomy without being oversized. Last but certainly not least, my all time favorite go-to accessory is by none other than my favorite accessory designer Ted Rossi. You can special order the leather talon cuff from LaLa Couture Boutique-it comes in a variety of colors and styles. Call 954-712-1100.

Stay tuned to the blog and my instagram (@lala_styled) for more fall picks, how to style them and where to purchase. 

XOXO,

Faux Fur Fix

Faux fur…I own way too many pieces of it for a Florida girl. Coats, vests, stoles…you name it…I’ve got it. You could call it a borderline obsession. People up North might poke a little fun at us Southerners; we wear our faux fur when the mercury drops below 70.

No brand makes tops quite like Rails LA. Known for their soft, comfortable fabric, Rails really hits the mark on the classic button-down. I love the print mixing on the rolled cuff of the sleeve. I chose a cranberry colored plaid for this outfit; I love anything burgundy for fall!

Leather pants are a huge trend this season, but if you can’t afford leather, opt for a coated denim. It’s a similar style with an easier price point. These amazing stiletto skinnies are by Current/Elliott. Trend alert: look for a pair that has zip detail on the bottom.

To complete the look, I added a neutral Rebecca Minkoff bag (my absolute FAVORITE bag of the moment), navy panama hat, stiletto heels, Chloe sunnies and a gorgeous Ted Rossi cuff.

Here’s to a fashionable fall y’all!

Sweet as a Peach

Colored shorts are a staple for the warm weather here in Florida. I love this color peach; it reminds me of sherbert! I paired it with a pretty floral/lace cami by Ark N Co and my favorite white blazer from Zara.

I actually styled this with two different handbags. I love the Rebecca Minkoff clutch for a dressier occasion.

The oversized hobo is a better option for a more casual/daytime look. My heels are by Sam Edelman (obsessing over anything with an ankle strap right now.)

I loved shooting in this outfit!

All styles are available at my store, with the exception of the blazer, which is sold at out Zara. I found a similar one here at Asos.
