(Sweatshirt: Sam&Lavi, Shorts: Christian Lacroix, Shoes: Sam Edelman, Hat: Hatattack)
Today is the last day of my collaboration with SINGER22. It has been a fun run – getting to play around with all the pieces, styling, photoshoots, trying on tons of shoes. I had the best time here and learned so much. My next big step is my collection, which I am more than excited to share with everyone. I can’t wait to see my readers wearing some of my pieces. The collection should officially be done by end of November, and you will be the first to hear where it can all be purchased. It’s a mix of so many things, 20 styles, that can transition into all seasons. This sweatshirt was one of the first pieces I bought at SINGER22. I normally am not a comfy sweatpant/sweatshirt kind of girl – but this one was too cute not to have. I paired it with a vintage pair of Christian Lacroix jeans that eventually, over time, morphed into jean shorts. The hat was a gift from hat attack back when I collaborated with White and Warren, and the shoes are the Sam Edelman copy of the Balenciaga booties Mary Kate Olsen ran around in last year.

(Dress: Vintage, Shoes: ACNE)
Very simple outfit but also not. This dress is a vintage piece that my sister gave to me – I can’t get over the colors, the cut, and the 70′s feel to it. It truly is a work of art, as are these ACNE wedges. I got these wedges over Christmas break last year on sale. I was in love the moment I laid my eyes on them. I love the texture and the design of the shoe – they are so unique and I will probably never get sick of them. I can’t wait to head over to the showroom today to check out some more of my samples – check twitter for updates!

I was so excited when Arrojo Salon invited me to be pampered for a mini photoshoot for the 10th anniversary of their salon. I had the best time. I walked in and was greeted by the team who made me feel beyond comfortable. I sat down with the hair stylist who helped me decide what I wanted to do with my hair. I chose to do a trim with a little bit of layering (boring, I know). I also decided to do a conditioning hair treatment before. They applied a mask and I sat under one of those 1950′s dryers. After that was rinsed out, I went and sat down with Martine who cut my hair and totally understood the meaning of “not too short, please!!!” After Martine dried my hair – I went over to the make up station where they gave me a mini make-over and I met the owner Nick. At the end of the day, we shot the final look – which I’ll be able to reveal September 7th at the event. It was such an awesome experience and I felt so lucky to be apart of it!

(Dress: Graham and Spencer, Sweater: Boyfriends, Knee highs: SockTheory, Shoes: Topshop, Hat: Topshop, Bag: Bottega Veneta)
Getting back into fall mode, took out some of my staple fall pieces. My classic black booties and hat from Topshop, and the perfect must-have black slip from Graham and Spencer. It’s the most fantastic layering piece. I could throw anything over it and it always shows the right amount of itself on the bottom. SockTheory has been a personal favorite website of mine that I discovered when I first started blogging. Everything is SO affordable and they have all the tights, knee highs, socks, that you could imagine.
