I’m loving all of these one shoulder tops!  They are so fun and totally reminding me of the early 2000’s, but have obviously been around for a while!  This one runs big, so I would definitely size down.  The nice thing is that you can make it tighter with the bow on top, but I would still size down.  My jeans are crazy flattering, y’all!!  They fit so well, are high waisted and super slimming.  They don’t stretch out, which is awesome.  They were really long, so I cut mine off with scissors I have at home.  Nothing fancy haha!  If you do this, just make sure they’re even by laying them flat and pulling the legs tight from the top of the inseam all the way down to the ankles.  Then, you will have an even hem.  I’ve already washed them, and they frayed perfectly at the bottom.  They run TTS, but if you’re in between sizes, I would suggest sizing up.  My heels also run TTS, but again, size up if you’re in between sizes.

Cardigan: Trouvé | Bodysuit: Topshop | Denim: Topshop | Necklaces: Kendra Scott here and here | Belt: Gucci | Hoops: Halogen (only $35!) | Heels: Christian Louboutin; similar look for less here

[show_shopthepost_widget id=”2784299″]

This cardigan is the perfect weight for transitioning into fall, and I’m obsessed with the sleeve and shoulder detail!  I’m always cold indoors, so I would totally wear it now.  Such a great staple!  I would also wear it casually with jeans, a tee and sneakers, or you could make it more work appropriate with dress or black pants.

I found this new necklace combo last week and have hardly taken it off.  The bar pendant is my favorite!  The mother of pearl one is adjustable, so you can wear it at whatever length you want (love this feature!)

Fit Tips: My sweater runs large, you can size down.  The body suit runs TTS.  The jeans run small, I would size up 2 sizes in them.  The shoes run TTS, however if you have a wide foot, I would size up at least a half size.  Thank you so much for reading, and Happy Tuesday!  xoxo, Christian

Cutest Bell Sleeve Dress Flattering on Any Body Type!

leopard clutch steve madden landen heel

Dress: Eliza J | Necklace: Kendra Scott | Earrings: Halogen (only $35!) | Heels: Steve Madden (under $100!) | Clutch: Clare V (have used this a ton!) | Bracelets: David Yurman here and here | Lips (new fav combo!): Smashbox ‘Safe Word’ lip liner & ‘Do No Wrong’ Matte Lipstick | Michele Watch here and here

[show_shopthepost_widget id=”2780127″]

I love Eliza J dresses for several reasons!  1- They usually make them in regular sizes and petites, which I like so that I can get the petite and not have to worry about altering.  They fit perfectly right off the rack, which almost never happens bc I am 5’2″.  I would say that if you’re taller than 5’4″, I would recommend getting the regular size.  Secondly, the price point is usually around $100 or so, and these dresses are really well made for that price.  This one has thicker fabric and is lined, so that it doesn’t show everything that you don’t want it to show.  These 2 features are hard to find in dresses at that price point and usually cost much more!  Lastly, their dresses are flattering on most body types.  I love the v-neck on this one and that it’s not too clingy.  It has just the right amount of shape!  This dress would be perfect for work, Sunday best, or any type of cocktail or daytime event.  You could dress it up as much as you want or dress it down.  I dressed it up a little more with this statement necklace, heels and clutch.

Fit Tips: The dress runs TTS (I’m wearing a 0 petite for reference).  The heels run TTS, but if you’re in between sizes, I would recommend sizing up.  I’ve used this clutch a ton, so if you’re thinking about investing in it, I highly recommend it!

Navy Ruffle Tie Top & Denim: Fun for going out!

chelsea28 navy topshop ripped denim

Top: Chelsea28 | Bralette: Free People | Denim: Topshop | Shoes: Kristin Cavallari (so comfy!) | Earrings: Argento Vivo | Bag: Louis Vuitton; similar option here |

[show_shopthepost_widget id=”2778079″]

Cute going out tops are hard to find that aren’t too over the top, but are just the right amount of fun.  I paired it with loafers and more casual denim for an everyday look, but you could totally put on a the same bralette in black, carry a black bag, wear black pumps, and that’s how you take it from day to night.  I might even wear black rips instead of this lighter wash denim for a nighttime look.  Of course, you could wear a cami underneath if you felt too bare in the bralette.

Fit Tips: The top runs TTS (I’m wearing an XS), the bra is pretty generous (I’m wearing a small); the jeans run small.  I’m wearing a 26 (normally a 24 in denim).  My loafers are super comfy and run TTS.

Thank you so much for reading and Happy Thursday loves!  xoxo, Christian

LBD Perfect for Everyday!

Dress: Trouvé (also comes in burgundy!) | Shoes: Steve Madden | Denim Jacket: Express (under $100, love the hemline!) | Sunnies: Gucci | Necklaces: Lana & BaubleBar (under$50!)| Bag: Valentino (similar style) | Earrings: Argento Vivo

[show_shopthepost_widget id=”2773925″]

A good LBD can be hard to find, but this one is definitely a fab one!  I love that it’s cotton (so perfect for the summer heat), and that you can wear it dressed up or put on a pair of flat sandals for a more casual look.  The waist knot is great and hides exactly just what you want to hide.  I also like that it’s not too short, so it will work for some taller girls!  My jean jacket is always on major repeat, y’all I have worn this thing to death!  The hemline is so cute, and the fit is really nice.  Not too tight fitting, and the crop hits at the perfect spot.  Lastly, I can’t say enough about this BaubleBar necklace.  I’ve been mixing it with some of my nicer pieces, and I love the way it looks (it also looks gorgeous alone & not necessary to layer if you don’t want) You would never know it’s under $50!!

Thank you so much for reading and Happy Tuesday babes!  xoxo, Christian

Slouchy Sweater & The Best Denim!

nordstrom prada frame denim

Top: Free People | Denim: FRAME | Bralette: Free People | Earrings: BaubleBar (so fun and only $36!) | Bracelets: Kate Spade here and here | Sunnies: Prada | Shoes: Christian Louboutin get  a similar look for less here | Bag: Clare V (have used this so much!) 

[show_shopthepost_widget id=”2772125″]

All of these slouchy sweaters are getting me in the mood for fall!  They’re so cozy and comfy, and they really have me in the mood for some cooler weather.  I’m planning a couple trips up north soon, and I really hope it will be chilly.  Ha!  Wearing your sweater off the shoulder is the perfect way to transition it into fall with all of these fun bralettes.  I love that you can still be comfy cozy with this look, but a little sexy too.  Another trend I’m totally on board with is high waisted denim.  My all time FAV denim is now doing a ton of high waisted styles.  Frame Denim has been my go to for the past several years, and they still don’t disappoint.  The fit is on point for many different body types, and they have just the right amount of stretch, but don’t bag out on you.  If you haven’t tried them, you definitely should!

Lastly, I’ve really been into all of these blush nudes that are out now.  They look fab paired back to white in the summer, but also look just as great with black.  I love the contrast and also love wearing them with rose gold jewelry.  The fringe earrings, and the pop of leopard add the perfect amount of fun to this chic look!

Fit Tips: My sweater is oversized, and I would recommend sizing down if you don’t want it to look so big.  I’m wearing an XS.  The jeans run TTS and don’t stretch out.  My shoes also run TTS, however if you have wide feet or are in between sizes, definitely size up.  I’m a size 6 and I have a 36 in these.

[show_shopthepost_widget id=”2769979″]

I love easy pieces that I call pull out of my closet, put on, and be out the door.  This dress is one of them!  I love the choker detail on the collar and I’m obsessed with the cascading ruffle on the bell sleeve.  I grabbed my favorite hoop by Argento Vivo, a fun but comfortable bootie and this outfit was done.  So easy!  These hoops  have been my go to for the past year–I also have them in silver and wear non-stop!  My booties are super comfy!  They might be on back order, but take my advice, they are worth the wait and the sale price!  They run TTS.

Other fit tips: My dress also runs TTS, however it is on the shorter side and more of a junior cut.  I am 5″2′ and I’m wearing an XS for reference.

Floral Shorts + OTK Boots On Sale 40% off!

Top: Wayf | Vest: Trouvé | Shorts: Leith | Boots: Stuart Weitzman 40% off!! | Cuff: Kendra Scott | Gucci Sunglasses | Necklace: BaubleBar (under $50!) | Bag: Céline ‘Micro’ Luggage; similar look for less here 

[show_shopthepost_widget id=”2767337″]

This vest is such a staple piece for fall!  Let me clarify that you don’t have to wear it with shorts.  It would look great with skinny jeans or flares, depending on your height.  I would transition it into fall with skinnies only bc I’m petite and flares can be overwhelming on my body, but I like wearing them with more fitted tops.

I also looovvvee bringing out all of my shades of red and burgundy when fall starts approaching.  Give me all the red lips during this time!!  I thought the pop of red in these floral shorts were the perfect transition piece, especially since it’s still so hot out down here in Florida.  I recently wore them with sandals, and it was super cute!

Fit Tips: Size down in the vest (I’m wearing an xxs), size up in the Wayf top if you’re in between sizes.  The boots run TTS and are so comfy!  I’ve had mine for years and still love them!  The shorts run TTS, but size up if you’re in between.  Happy Tuesday loves!  xoxo, Christian

I got my first taste of cooler weather in Seattle this week, and it really got me in the mood for fall!  I was out there for a quick 2 day trip for our Season/Shift Designer Event.  It was hands down one of the coolest things I’ve experience while working at Nordstrom.  The event was basically a preview of what’s to come for fall from all of the big designers like Chanel, Givenchy, Gucci,  Stella McCartney, Saint Laurent, just to name a few.  The cutest cocktails were flying and models were workin it!  Another highlight of my trip was spending time in our flagship store, which is 5 levels, just FYI.  They just re-modeled the store and it was oh so cool!  Super modern with all the bells and whistles.  I definitely felt like I was in New York.  I was also able to connect with some friends that I used to work with.  That is one of the things I love most about my job–my co-workers.  I’ve met some of the most amazing people along the way, and if you stay with the company long enough, you run into old friends all the time.  It really is like a family!

I feel so full of fashion inspiration from my trip that I want to buy sooooo many new things for fall.  Ha!  One thing on my list was this leather skirt.  For under $100, it’s such a great price!  The leather is really soft and buttery, and I love the color, and since the cooler tones are really in style right now, I thought it would be the perfect addition to my wardrobe.  I thought it was perfect paired back to this ruffle top just to add the right amount of girly to this more edgy look.  Another trend to be on the lookout for is this style bootie paired back to dresses and skirts with bare legs.  It’s the perfect look for transitioning into fall!  Lastly, you can’t go wrong with this statement necklace made of draping gold chains.  It looks SO nice for under $50, and I’ve worn mine a ton!!

I love this jacket for fall for several reasons! 1) It stays pretty warm in Florida for a while, but I’m always cold.  This jacket is lightweight and perfect for layering!  2) I’m obsessed with olive green.  It looks great on just about everyone and is a gorgeous neutral for fall, while adding in some color to your wardrobe.  3) The draping is really pretty.  It honestly looks so designer for this price!  4) I love the functioning pockets!
