So yeah, I'm pretty much ready for fall. I've mentioned before that come mid-August I'm completely over summer weather and thoroughly looking forward light layers and autumnal colors. But as a Californian, I also know that Indian summer is just around the corner thus delaying that desire even more.

Nonetheless, there's no harm in slowly acquiring some pre-fall pieces and let me just say that H&M has an amazing assortment to choose from so be sure to check it out!


Nothing to Wear Weekends

Let's face it. We've all had those days of looking at closet full of clothes, yet have nothing to wear. I think it's assumed that as a blogger, especially a style blogger, you have a wardrobe full of clothes, new options to choose from everyday. And for some, that may be true. But certainly not for me.

I have one adjustable garment rack that I keep about 8-10 new pieces on and a closet that holds my entire wardrobe, shoes and bags included. Additionally, I'm a firm believer in cleaning out my closet bi-monthly to avoid collecting things I've never worn or don't plan on wearing.                     -Some, i.e. my mom, could argue that I do it too often thus resulting in this spiel.-

Nonetheless, this particular day was one of those days when my hair wasn't done, it was practically 100 degrees out and I just couldn't be bothered. So I grabbed my trusty Zara cropped t-shirt that I've had for about 3 years now, an H&M skirt I scored on sale last season and my Wrap Life head wrap because again, I couldn't be bothered. 

All in all, just when you think you have nothing to wear, get yourself together and create something to wear. Xx

Summer Dressing in C H L O E

Dress: n/a but loving this this + this option! Sandals. // Also in pink. // Sunnies. Clutch: vintage. Hat // similar style under $50! //

It goes without saying that I'm having a mini moment with dresses. It's currently the peak of summer heat here in the Bay -90 to be exact as I write this- and per usual, I'm sure the heat will continue well into August  -and even into September- thanks to Indian Summer.

I scored this dress for $25 about a month ago and kept it in my closet for the perfect summer day and well, today was the day. It's no longer available but I've linked a few similar styles I think you'll love that's not only perfect for the remainder of this summer, but summers to come. 

Enjoy + thanks for stopping by! Xx

A Little Gucci. || A Little Gingham.

Back to work after a 4 day weekend and I'm already asking myself, "Is it Friday yet?" I FINALLY got around to wearing my Who What Wear x Target dress -which is sadly sold out- and I gotta say, it's probably one of the best pieces I've purchased this summer. Perfectly on trend yet still classy, I created a little waist w/ my Gucci Marmont belt and tied the one that came w/ the dress around my bag for a little added interest.

H A P P Y  H U M P D A Y !

|| Ruffles for the Win ||

I won't even spend a ton of time talking about how much I'm loving the ruffle trend. -See how I styled one of my favorite tops here!- And though the trend nothing new, we are seeing a ton of fresh takes on this super girly detail be it in tops and skirts and even on the hem of jeans and pants!

-I just scored these on clearance for $16!-

Nonetheless I don't plan on getting too many more pieces because, overkill, I am pretty obsessed with the few pieces I do have that I'm sure will take me through summer and right into fall! Xx -C.
