Striped

imageimageimageimageimage

It’s hot. Case in point: my top, even though it had been pressed, wrinkled just by my going outside–so it’s over stated, but yes, hot. And all I want to wear are things that are as cool as possible. This combination is so light the heat is almost bearable, but the classic stripes, and pop of red on the shoes make me feel pulled together–and hot in the non-weather way!

Hope you’re managing to stay cool these last few days of summer! XO RA

Skirt, BCBG, old, similar here
Top: HM, similar here

Purse: Vintage

Jumpsuit Love

imageimageimageimageimage

I think it’s no secret that I have a thing for jumpsuits–who doesn’t when they can be this effortless and chic? Even more difficult is resisting this Mara Hoffman number–it’s linen so you stay cool, yet the embroidered stripes keep it from being anything but simple. I think it’s safe to say it’s love!

Hope you have a great start to the week! XO RA

Summer Swan Song

imageimageimageimage

I’ve been so focused on fall coming that I’ve completely ignored that summer is ending! Ok, not really-the heat is a big clue, but it’s been so easy to think about cooler weather and football (and is it me or does school start super early now?!?!?) that I’ve been pushing aside my sundresses in the hopes of fall wear. Not this weekend–I plan on enjoying the last of summer with swimsuits, sundresses, flip flops and shorts– in all their glory. What are you doing for the weekend?

Happy Friday! XO RA

Fashion Math

imageimageimageimageimage

 

It may come as no surprise to you that I love planning outfits-thinking what goes with what, keeping things for special occasions, planning days in advance. However–life happens, outfits don’t work, I get tired–and when that happens I like to have “go to”s that I know will work. Call them security blankets, call them safety nets–call them great outfits. Any jean, any button down, any shoe (seriously-heel, sandal, wedge)= magic. Any tee, any skirt, any heel= you will kill it. These combos save me and leave me feeling pulled together no matter what! I’d love to know–what are your “go to”s?

 

Happy Monday! XO RA

Details:

Tee: Clearly well loved vintage, also love this one
Pencil skirt: Zara
Shoes: Louboutin, old, similar here

Fall Feelings

imageimageimageimageimage

Did I mention I’m of the “if we build it, it will come” mentality when it comes to fall? Well, I am. And this week has me longing for cooler temps–and all of the fashion that comes with them. It did rain by my mom so I was inspired to put on this fall(ish) dress and booties. Because if we wear outfits like this enough, it will change to fall. Right?

Happy Friday! XO RA

Dress: Trade-Mark and on sale!
Booties: Jerome C Rousseau
Lipstick:Tom Ford

Fall Trends: Is Fringe a Thing We’re Doing?


 

imageimageimageimage

It’s a thing we’re doing.

I know, it’s hot and the last thing on your mind is what to wear this fall–you’re trying to get through today! However, fall is fast approaching, and I’m of the “if we build it, it will come” school of thought–so maybe if we all concentrate on fall trends it will get cooler? If nothing else we will be prepared!

Fringe has been on and off the shelves for the past few seasons, but take a look in any magazine or on any fall runway–this is the season to truly rock it. And here’s the thing–Fringe is fun and easy! It’s an instant statement piece, provides movement,  and most importantly is fun! This skirt I got on Etsy last season, the bags are vintage, and I plan on buying these Sam Edelman stunners. Shop below for some of my fave fringe picks!

And I’d love to know–are you planning on rocking this trend?
Happy Wednesday!

Dog Days

imageimageimageimage

 

We’re smack in the dog days of summer–I’m dreaming of fall clothes, but ya’ll it’s hot. Which can make outfit planning difficult, to say the least. To try and satisfy my longing for cooler weather, and the reality of the blazing heat I’ve been living in outfits like this–shorts and some sort of a jacket (preferably short sleeved) worn as a shirt. I love that it feels just so slightly safari (without the commitment to green and utility) and allows me to feel pulled together and chic–and most importantly, it lets me (somewhat) keep my cool.

Happy Monday! XO RA

Details:

Coat (worn as a shirt): Alice and Olivia
Shorts: Zara, old, similar here
Shoes: Schutz

If you’ve been following me on Instagram (@racheladelicia) you know that my sister and I have been on a road trip. We went from LA to TX, and I cannot tell you how beautiful the Southwest is, every day was a treat in terms of landscapes! And I couldn’t help but be inspired, the background was just too colorful! Many thanks to my sister for getting up early to take these pictures! And pro tip–even in the desert black tie works!
