Wearing: gold statement earrings / Chanel lipstick / white lace dress (under $100!!) / white tank top (under dress for coverage) / white tennis shorts (under dress for coverage) / blue and gold bead bracelet stack / gold and turquoise cuff / white watch / Chanel fall nail polish / Chloe bag / espadrilles (old, similar pair under $100 here)

I left my He(art) in San Francisco. Ah, this conjures up visions of Tony Bennett belting out our city’s unofficial theme song. It also conjures up a modern-day vision of’s heart in a circle logo; which you might be familiar with from Instagram.

The summer of 2017 has been the summer of likes; Instagram likes that is. The team has been traveling around the country installing pop-up wall’s in all of our major cities. These pop-up walls last about one month, and offer a colorful background for taking photos worthy of all the likes on Instagram. Like it? Ha! I love it!

In case you are reading this and wondering what in the world is, it is an app where you can shop your favorite outfits, products, beauty products, home, products etc. from enabled photos found on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and Pinterest. If you screenshot a photo bearing the logo in the bottom right-hand corner, the photo and product details will appear in your app with shoppable links. You can learn more about it from this post I wrote in April.

The San Francisco wall was officially launched on August 16, 2017. To celebrate, Dawn from Fashion Should Be Fun and I went up to the city for meetings, lunch, and of course, photos in front of the wall! The San Francisco He(art) wall features so many pretty colors; but I have to admit I am in love with the portion bearing blue and green tones. Isn’t it fabulous!

You too can take your Instagram worthy photo in front of the wall; but hurry! It will only be there until September 16, 2017. The wall is located on the Palmer’s SF building on the  corner of Fillmore and Clay. Since it is in the Fillmore shopping district, you can combine your wall visit with lunch or brunch; and some serious shopping! Love! Or should I say; Like!

So I have rambled on about this fabulous wall, but can we change gears for a minute and chat about this dress?! In anticipation of the wall, I purchased this white dress so that I would not clash with the color palette; which was still a secret when I was shopping for a wall-worthy ensemble!

I was thrilled to find this dress. It is under $100 and turned out to be extremely comfortable. What threw me for a loop was when a woman walking on Fillmore street stopped to tell me how much she liked my dress! This does not happen often, so when it does, I know I need to re-wear the dress as often as possible!

If you are looking for a little white dress, which can be a fabulous go-to piece in your closet, this one is under $100; so you can’t go wrong! Plus, my Mom accused me of spending $400+ on it, so it looks like it cost much more then it did. I am not sure she believed me when I told her the price! haha

The dress is a little sheer, so I wore white tennis shorts and a white tank top underneath to make sure everything was covered. Worked like a charm!

Day to night outfit idea for summer into fall

day to night outfit ideaday into evening outfit ideaday into evening outfit ideaday into evening outfit ideaday to night handbagday to night outfit idea

day to night outfit idea: white and silver dangle earrings / Chanel lipstick / black one shoulder ruffle top (only $44!!)  / YSL fall nail polish / Chloe handbag / black and silver watch / black and silver striped palazzo pants / slate blue pumps (color sold out, avl in black, silver, pewter or light blue with 1″ heel))

Oh the humidity! We have been “enjoying” weather in the nineties over the past few days, and yesterday, the humidity was mid-west level. I had to stop and look around, just to make sure I was home and not on vacation in the middle of the country! I’m so glad I had this day to night outfit idea to wear now; which is perfect for transitioning from summer into fall.

These palazzo pants are under $20, and they are SO COMFORTABLE! They flow like a skirt, but offer the comfort of pants. Love that! They were perfect for meeting my friend Dawn for lunch at Santana Row, and also for going out to dinner with my husband later that night. Perfect day to night outfit idea for a hot summer night!

Quick shout-out for Sino at Santana Row; it is where Dawn and I enjoyed lunch. If you are local to the Bay Area, be sure to check out their dim sum. It is so good! I have eaten there multiple times, and every time I go the food is absolutely delicious. Love!

Now that I have YSL’s Studio 54 themed nail polish collection for fall, I felt inspired to add some sparkle to a day to night outfit which was lightweight enough to wear now, and well into the fall season. I just love the sparkling silver stripes on these palazzo pants, they are so festive and fun!

These pants also look chic with a slouchy tee and mules for a more casual, urban-relaxed look. I look forward to wearing them for the rest of the summer season; and well into the fall season!

Thanks for stopping by!

Ruffle top under 20

wearing: rose quartz and gold dangle earrings c/o BaubleBar (love these, current fav!!) / Chanel summer lipstick / blue and white striped ruffle top (under $15!!) / wide leg raw hem jeans / Cult Gaia bag (in stock!) / Essie summer nail polish c/o / brown and silver leather watch / silver mules (fall 2017 under $75 and super comfy!!)

Can we dub this the “Summer of Ruffles?” I am pretty sure I own more ruffle and tiered tops right now then I have owned in all of the years I have lived on this planet combined. That’s a lot of ruffles!

The ruffle trend may have turned out to be my favorite trend of the summer 2017 season. I just love it! Ruffles are so lighthearted, playful, and downright fun! This top is turning out to be a great casual outfit game changer. Instead of a tee, I can thrown on this top and look instantly on trend! Love that! Plus, it is under $15. Love that more! haha

Like the white ruffle top I wore earlier in the season, this blue and white striped top can be worn off of both shoulders, or just off one shoulder. It is always nice to have versatility in a top.

Which summer trend have you found yourself stocking your closet with?
