Black Linen Wrap Dress & Ark Bag

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

DVF Gingham Dress

Diane Von Furstenberg Spring/Summer 2015

When I think of Diane Von Furstenberg, the second thing that immediately comes to mind are exquisite wrap dresses. Thanks to Diane, the wrap dress became extremely popular in the mid 70’s. Over four decades later, and it’s still an all time favorite style of women across the globe. This particular wrap dress with it’s gingham print and green floral pattern is one of my favorite DVF wrap dresses of all time. I absolutely love the contrast between the clashing prints and colors. I feel this color palette is a bit masculine but is beautifully juxtaposed by the ultra feminine wrap style and the singular side ruffle detail. This dress not only moves beautifully, it also has a fluidity to it despite the clash of prints and colors; that is the genius of Diane Von Furstenberg.

Wrap dresses are quite versatile and definitely a wardrobe staple. They can easily be dressed down with sandals for casual outings or dressed up with closed-toe pumps for a more conservative and elegant occasion. Jersey fabric is the most flattering to this dress style. It creates wonderful movement and is flattering on every body type. Patterned wrap dresses are really fun to accessorize. Get this DVF gingham wrap dress on sale (50% off!) while you can, it won’t last!

P.s. DFV dresses run a whole size small in my opinion. I’ve always ordered a size up for the perfect fit. I’m normally a 10 but I’m wearing a 12 in this dress.

Inspired to keep things light and natural I thought this gorgeous Etro dress was just perfect thing. My hair was (surprisingly) working with me on this particular morning so I just quickly curled the ends of my hair and let it be.
