Chambray + Lace with American Eagle, Who What Wear Collection at Target and Dr. Martens


I was so happy with how this summer photo shoot turned out! You'd never know the mosquitoes and humidity were at play in these photos. As for my outfit, chambray + lace ended up being the perfect fit for the park scenery and flowers.

My American Eagle chambray dress was super comfy, and I’m excited to mention that I saw more chambray dresses at the recent American Eagle holiday preview. I have very minimal white in my wardrobe, but this lace shell ($22.99) by Who What Wear Collection, exclusively at Target is the perfect layering piece. I also got it in black. If you haven’t checked it out yet, definitely go to target.com and check out the new Who What Wear fall collection. I already bought four fall pieces and plan on getting a few more for the upcoming season. Great quality and pricing, but the best part is that the XS is actually true to sizing, with more of a tailored fit. I get so disappointed by these designer collaborations having such a large, loose fit. I’m happy I can actually shop this collection!

The Dr. Martens Jemima Aunt Sally shoes ($120) in White are comfortable to walk in for miles. They run wide and big, so I definitely recommend sizing down or wearing with a shoe insert or socks. What I love about these chukka boots is that you can dress them up or down. I’ve worn my Black pair with jeggings for a previous Dr. Martens photo shoot, but they can also be worn with a skirt, shorts or leggings. I saw that these shoes now come in Silver which I love!


Thank you to Deepti Sheladia for doing a fabulous job on my makeup look – I love the copper/navy eye and bold pink lip. Thank you to Krystal Pratt for thinking of this hidden gem of a location to shoot at and capturing such natural shots and making it look and feel effortless. The photos in the mini flower field are some of my favorite ones that Krystal has ever shot of me!

American Eagle Outfitters / Aerie Summer 2017


It's the time of year when we anticipate those big summer clearance and back-to-school sales, and one of my stops for August shopping is definitely American Eagle Outfitters / Aerie. This season has a lot of cute pieces, including hi-neck sports bras, sports bras with a contrast lace back, crop tops, cutout dresses, cutout maxis, and denim midi shorts. For the beach or pool, there are also crochet swimsuits and crop bikini tops, woven fringe, oversized, and straw tote bags. Check out these looks from the American Eagle preview I went to a few months ago. I haven't shopped all these fun, on trend pieces just yet, but now's the perfect time to, with plenty of warm weather weeks left.
