Not Your Average Shirtdress

imageimageimageimageimageimage

There is something absolutely classic about a good shirtdress– you can dress it up or wear it casually and they flatter everyone. So when I found this one in a bright pattern on Etsy I fell in love! I can shy away from big patterns and colors just as much as the next person, but this dress made it easy to get just a tad bit out of my comfort zone. It’s become a go-to in my closet and a great update!

Hope you’re having a great Memorial Day! XO RA

There’s a shot of LA that’s in a ton of commercials lately– the LACMA light installation. I could not think of a better place to show you some of the most amazing shoes I own (and that’s saying a lot). The early morning light filters in slowly here–but it can still capture the shoes–even the security guards loved them.

It’s Monday–hope you have spectacular shoes to get you through the day!

The Best 3 Spring Flats Under $150

I love shoes. The only thing I think you need more of then heels? Flats. I’ll be honest–it has taken me a while to warm up to flats, nine times out of ten I will still pick a heel. However, as the years have passed there are times that nothing beats a good flat. My criteria? The flats must be stylish, comfortable, and able to be worn with a variety of outfits. I’d love to know–what are your fave flats?

First up these amazing HM sneakers. They’re comfy and have been my go-to from everything from leggings to t-shirt dresses to jeans and t-shirts. I also may or may not have bought an extra pair for football season.

Next: these Cole Haan Drivers. All the cool kids in my Jr High had Cole Haan loafers–but let me tell you that they weren’t this cool-these are the cool big sister of those loafers, done in suede and able to add a polish to just about anything. I’ve been wearing mine with jeans, shorts, and t-shirt dresses.

Lastly these expensive looking Halogen T-Straps. I saw a girlfriend wearing them at the gym and went home and ordered them. From black pants, black dresses, jeans, sweats–there hasn’t been an outfit I haven’t loved them with yet!

 

Happy Wednesday! xo RA

Is there anything more classic than a white button down and jeans? No. It can go anywhere–be dressed up or down. And here’s the great thing? You can have fun with it! I found this amazing little pink satin turban at one of my favorite stores in LA, Recess, and knew it would be amazing with anything–even jeans.

Hope you have an amazing Monday–with a little bit of fun! xo RA
