Stylish August Instagram Round Up

Who can believe today is the final day of August!? This month flew by and I can't believe I am leaving tomorrow to celebrate my bestie's wedding! It has been a while since I have done an Instagram round up so I thought I would share what's been happening in my crazy life lately! Don't forget if you aren't following me on Instagram, please follow me for all the behind scenes of my stylish life! Hope everyone is having a great Wednesday!

How is it already the end of the month!? This month flew by and summer is slowly coming to an end! With the end of the month only days away, its time to reveal August's Stylish Girl of the Month and while I try super hard to choose a new girl that I haven't chosen in the 5 years of doing this series, sometimes its impossible because my past picks continue to prove they are as stylish as ever. You all know I am a HUGE Pretty Little Liars fan and the fashion on that show seriously makes me drool each week. With the summer finale tonight I decided to revisit one stylish girl who continues to prove she is not going anywhere as a style icon. Lucy Hale is probably one of my favorite stylish actresses as she never misses a beat and dresses amazing every time she is ever seen. She knows exactly how to dress for her body type and is so in touch with fashion, I want to be bffs with her! Lucy is the natural pick for August's SGOTM, and this is why! Hope everyone is having a fantastic Tuesday so far!

Stylish Outfit: The Perfect Cowl Neck Dress

Dress: Leith via Nordstrom  // Leather Jacket: BP Nordstrom (similar) // Booties: Sam Edelman // Crossbody: Coach 

Happy Monday! I am actually excited about this week because it's only a three day week and then I am headed off to Maryland for my bestie's wedding! To kick off the week I am share yet another purchase of mine from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and this dress is so not what I would have purchased but happens to be probably the best purchase I have made in a long time. I love cowl necks, as seen here, and this cowl neck dress just fits me perfectly and is so comfortable I want to wear it like all day every day. The fabric is beyond soft. I love how you can pair this with cute booties and a leather jacket for a night out, or dress it down with cute wedges or sandals for the daytime. I am all over this dress for fall and I can't get enough of cowl necks! Hope everyone had a great weekend! Thanks to my sister for snapping these adorable photos!

Stylish Travel Must Haves

Travel Must Haves
1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6 // 7 // 8

I am traveling to Maryland next week for my besties wedding and as embarrassing as this sounds I think the last time I was on a plane was last labor day weekend 2015. (I am so busy travel has taken a major back seat and I've been traveling locally) I feel like I may have forgotten what traveling is like especially when I am traveling to the east coast, so its a full day thing! I plan on carrying on, so minimalism is going to be my new best friend, and if you know me, that's not going to be very easy. I decided to share my travel must haves and by the looks of my essentials you definitely don't think minimalism but these are all great items that you can bring, I sometimes don't bring all of them! What items are a must when you travel? Hope everyone is having a great week, we are almost to the weekend!

Stylish Fall 2016 Fashion Ad Campaigns

All Photos Credit: Stylecaster and

September is just around the corner which blows my mind honestly. This summer was so amazing and it is flying by way too fast. With September near that means it's time for new trends, fashion week and of course new fashion advertisements! Fall is expected to be an epic season and the fashion ad campaigns depict just that, simply epic. The best models, actors and singers are gracing some of the hottest brands ads and  I rounded up all my favorite ad campaigns from fall 2016 and you are going to be just as excited as I am! Hope everyone is having a fantastic Tuesday!

Stylish Outfit: The Perfect Transitional Romper

Romper: Nordstrom (identical version) // Booties: Sam Edelman // Purse: Michael Kors // Sunglasses: BP. Nordstrom // Watch: Marc by Marc Jacobs

This past weekend's weather really reminded me of why I live in California! It was beyond gorgeous and I wanted to spend the entire weekend outside, which I tried too! Anyway now that the weekend is over I can share this outfit that per usual I can't get enough of. I am continuing with sharing what I bought during the  Nordstrom Sale and this romper was the very first thing I bought during the sale and probably my favorite purchase. While it is sold out I have linked a ton of similar options below so don't fret! I am obsessed with rompers, but have really only worn them in the warmer months and this romper allows me to take it into the cooler months ahead. It's in the hot fall color of hunter green and has sleeves that can be worn down or up and a drop waist that really completes this look. This is the perfect transition romper for late summer into fall! Thanks to my sister for snapping these photos, hope everyone had a great weekend!

Stylish Office Decor: The Perfect Desk Lamp

1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6 // 7 // 8  

I hate admitting this but I have had my bedroom furniture with the exception of my bed and desk, since I was literally 12 years old.  This year I've decided that enough is enough and I have got to save up and buy myself new furniture. I am starting with my desk area and while I am keeping the current desk I have (for now at least) I am upgrading everything else. I just fully decluttered the desk with SugarPaper for Target's newest desk collection that I seriously cannot get enough of! I am so mad that I missed the actual desk in the collection but what I snagged is still amazing. When I bought my desk  originally I was really into the whole black and white thing (like everywhere in my house its so crazy to me looking back) and now all I want is white and simple, so these desk accessories are the perfect start. However, my desk lamp is black and flat out boring so it's time to find a new chic lamp that is  gold. I have ordered this one from Target and cannot wait to get it but I thought I would shop around and see if there were any other options that fit the bill (yes all are under $100). What room in your house is craving a makeover, I would love to hear suggestions and thoughts! Hope everyone is having a stylish week, we are almost to Friday!

Stylish Fall Trend Must Have: Bomber Jackets

1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6 // 7 // 8  

After having the world's worst Monday yesterday I came home to find my latest issue of People Style Watch and came across a trend that I have been seeing everywhere, bomber jackets! While the thought of jackets right now seems so horrible thanks to the heatwave LA can't seem to get out of. I've got my eye on fall though and while I will admit that at first glance this trend reminded me of the 80s but they're actually more structured and really make an outfit.  I saw a few during the Nordstrom Sale but I decided to shop some of my favorite stores and came across these bomber jackets that are perfect for fall! Hope everyone is having a great Tuesday!

Stylish Outfit: The Perfect Shirtdress

Dress: Wayf // Booties: Sam Edelman // Bag: Marshalls (similar) // Watch: Marc by Marc Jacobs

I'm finally back with a new outfit and can I just say, I am obsessed with this dress! Dresses are my thing lately, I prefer them over pants especially in this SoCal heat! This dress was one of my many purchases from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and two things I love about this dress, the color and the fabric. It's so soft and so lightweight its perfect for now and into fall with a great sweater and boots! I paired it with my favorite booties and completed the look with a skinny brown belt, and voila the perfect shirtdress! How amazing in this wall though? I am so mad at myself for not shooting in front of it sooner especially since its like legit across the street from my parents! It's the perfect backdrop! Thanks to my sister for snapping these photos. Hope everyone had an amazing weekend!

So until next time... Live Stylishly
