lace midi dress

Towards the end of each season I get utterly sick of everything in my closet. I start to feel like throwing on dress after dress is the lazy option when really I’m just taking advantage of easy pieces and bare legs. And, without fail, I’ll end up at an H&M to pick up a few fast-fashion pieces to tide me over — despite the number of times I tell myself to “buy less, buy better.” Sometimes a girl just needs a really inexpensive lace midi dress, you know?

on the run

Rent the Runway is plain genius. So is Clover Canyon — I mean, those prints! On neoprene! I can’t get enough of this dress I wore to Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s On The Run concert last weekend. The entire show was incredible, of course, and I’ll use any excuse to get glammed up! Beauty-wise, I’ve been keeping it pretty simple lately with a new foundation that just might be my Holy Grail (not an intentional Jay-Z reference). Starting now I have to put myself on a shopping diet following some car issues this week and resenting the fact that tires took precedence over my wish list here. Luckily I already have a dress reserved for my next event and a queue lined up for Rent the Runway’s newest subscription service, Unlimited, which is literally Netflix for clothing and accessories — totally counts as saving!

super skinny jeans

If you’re like me, finding the perfect pair of jeans is a never-ending task. My latest discovery came when I partnered with Abercrombie & Fitch and rediscovered why I would spring for their coveted denim in my middle to high school days. If anything, I’m even more impressed with the newer styles! My (admittedly too-large) denim collection has been full of dark-wash pairs for the past couple of years and I’d been on the hunt for the perfect light wash pair with just the right amount of distressing. I’m wearing the Alyssa Super Skinny jeans here and the fit is quite literally the best ever — high rise, comfortable amount of stretch, cropped right at the ankle, and I’m sure you know about those flattering back pockets. Just in time for a fall wardrobe refresh, Abercrombie & Fitch jeans will be only $35 starting today through August 2nd!
