Scarlet Starlet

Dress c/o Scarlet Clothing 

I hope everyone is having a wonderful start to their summer! My sincerest apologies for the lag in updating - I can't even begin to tell you guys how busy these past few weeks have been. I know I already mentioned that in my previous post, but things somehow managed to get even crazier than that haha. I'll delve into the details in a later post, but for now I'll just say that I'm so happy to finally get this blog up and running again! I've definitely missed it, and I also have lots of cute new looks to show you guys. 

The first is this stunner of a dress right here. The wise Karl Lagerfeld once said that you can never be over or underdressed with a little black dress, and I for one couldn't agree any more with that statement. I'm such a huge fan of the LBD that I literally did a speech for a communications class once praising the iconic garment and emphasizing why it's a wardrobe staple. Education, people!

This piece is from Scarlet Clothing, an ultra cute boutique that I recently got introduced to and have since fallen madly in love with. A lot of their stuff is perfect for summer, a few of my favorites being these two dresses (1, 2), this romper, this off-the-shoulder crop top and these jeans. Make sure to check out their equally fabulous Instagram as well - @scarletclothing!

There's a vast assortment of ways in which you can style an LBD. For this look, I stayed true to my everyday style by maintaining my favorite casual-yet-chic balance. My signature ankle strap heels, a blush purse and some glitzy gold accessories served as the perfect complements to this piece, while the cutout in the back gave it an unexpected edge. And although you probably can't tell by the photos alone, the material of the dress is refreshingly light! LA is in a pretty aggressive heatwave right now, so being able to rock something in black while also not feeling like I'm about to melt is a huge plus. Lastly, an easy style tip that I did for this piece was cinch it at the waist with a black belt so that it was more form fitting and slightly shorter.

This dress is just one of the many that I've gotten my hands on in the past few weeks, so stay tuned for more. And to all my fellow SoCal fashionistas out there powering through this heat wave - stay cool!
