Black Linen Wrap Dress & Ark Bag

Dress | Shoes (similare here, here, & here) | Bag | Earrings (similar) | Lipstick

Ok friends, I have a few things to share with you all today. First, we shot this look a couple of months ago, but I’m just now getting around to posting it. I absolutely love this dress, and it’s under $100! It’s the perfect blend of rayon and linen. Which means the fabric has a good weight to it and it drapes beautifully. I love a good wrap dress but what sold me on this one were the pockets! Dresses with pockets are just the best, don’t you think? Anyway, this dress comes in 5 different colors; one option is a beautiful, light gingham print. I love the drop shoulder and the midi length. The cut and style are elegant enough to wear it to a more formal event, like dinner. But the fabric and drape make it more casual when paired with flat sandals and casual accessories, like a crossbody bag and a fun, long necklace. I’m so excited for fall weather, but I don’t think it will be arriving here in las vegas any time soon. So this is a good transition piece until then.

On another note, if you follow me on Instagram, you’ll see that my interview on the DM Show Podcast is now live! It was my first podcast ever, and I was so nervous to record! I think it went well overall. Anyway, I linked it in my Instagram stories, but you can also listen to it on Apple Podcasts for free here. We spoke about veganism, vegan lifestyles, vegan babies, vegan fashion and beauty, and a there’s a bit about my personal life. Please go listen to it and let me know what you think!

Also, as you can see, I’ve been adding other types of post besides fashion and beauty. I plan to start sharing more inspirational content with you all. I want to share all the things that inspire me to create a beautiful, happy, fulfilled life, that will help make the world a better place. There’s so much that I have planned and I’m beyond excited to share it all with you. I want to give back. I want to serve others. I want to do work that inspires and uplifts others. If you follow me on Instagram and you read those posts, you’ve seen a little glimpse of that in my latest sponsored post. I’m also working on covering more vegan, cruelty-free brands that are stylish and ethical. So watch out for that and make sure to subscribe to my newsletter so that you don’t miss anything. I’ll have some exclusive content on there including giveaways for subscribers only. Btw, newsletters only go out once every month.

Ok, that’s it for today. Hope you all have a beautiful Wednesday! Thank you to each and every one of you for following along, it means the world to me. 🙂 <3

It’s been nearly 7 weeks since my baby was born. At times, it feels like it’s been much longer but conversely, time seems to be flying by. My wardrobe didn’t really change after birth, I’m still living in James Perse dresses. I got these Calvin Klein sandals a few months ago, I had completely forgotten about them. They’re now on sale for under $50! Diaper changing, spit up wiping, and baby’s laundry tend to eclipse the day, leaving little to no time for putting together outfits. I have several other items I’m really excited to shoot (if I ever find the time, lol).

Every woman should know about James Perse dresses, whether pregnant or not. While James Perse dresses are not maternity dresses, they are so incredibly soft, comfortable, and stretchy; making them the perfect pregnancy dresses. When I found out I was pregnant I really thought I was going to have to buy a whole set of maternity clothes. Luckily, I already had several James Perse dresses so I’ve literally only purchased 4 items of maternity clothes- 3 pairs of maternity leggings and 1 pair of maternity jeans from Target- that’s all.

I first discovered James Perse dresses when I worked for them at Ceasar’s Palace. I became an immediate fan of the label. That man really knows his fabrics. He creates the most luxurious, soft, stretchy, cotton fabrics you will ever wear. The dresses are flattering on all shapes and sizes whether you’re a size 0 or a size 14. We would constantly have pregnant women in the store shopping. Many of them would say they never bothered buying maternity clothes because they always wore James Perse and the clothes would fit perfectly pre-pregnancy, during, and after; that thought always stuck in my head. Another reason I absolutely love these dresses is their versatility; they can go from day to night with a simple change of shoes and accessories.

Tea Length Button Down Dress

Tea length is one of my favorite dress styles. It’s a very feminine cut. However, in this particular dress the femininity is downplayed by the racerback style, loose waist, and slit front pockets making this dress perfect for everyday wear. Tea length dresses are quite flattering for women with wide hips. The slight cinch at the waist, the racer back straps, and the long vertical row of buttons creates an elongated silhouette making you appear taller and thinner. I especially love this style when made of rayon. The fabric is cool —perfect for warm temperatures— has great movement and drapes the body beautifully.

Dolce and Gabbana Hoop Earrings

When I spotted the earrings in today’s post, they instantly reminded me a Dolce & Gabbana ad. They look like they could be family heirlooms but they most definitely are not. I found them at Nordstrom Rack, which as I’ve shared before, has a fantastic selection of jewelry. The Dolce & Gabbana-like feel of these earrings made me think of Italy and of the cool, sexy style Italian women wear so effortlessly. So I opted for this little black dress with a wide Elizabethan-type neckline.
