September is here but the heat is a blazing! In fact, here in LA it’s the hottest it’s been all summer long (nearly 100 every single day!). In effort to not melt, the beach and a pool are a must along with iced cold beverages on repeat.

Because it’s simply too hot to wear just about anything except for cute little dresses, I recently went on a dress/romper buying bender at Urban Outfitters with one simple rule: everything must be under $70. After all, fall is upon us….

From cute little floral numbers to bohemian breezy dresses, I found a handful of darling pieces that fit the bill and have been living in them to keep cool. Here are some of my favorites:

1. Lucca Couture Floral Chiffon Long-Sleeve Romper
2. Cooperative Layered Dress
3. Kimchi Blue Scarlett Fit + Flare Dress
4. Urban Renewal Remade Plain Jane Open Back Romper
5. Honey Punch Knot-Front T-Shirt Dress
6. Kimchi Blue Cutwork Tropical Sun Dress

Plus here are more great dresses for under $70:

Bandanas & Tassels

Two of my current go-to’s to add a little snazz to an outfit are a bandana around my neck (I know this has been everywhere but I was a late adopter, what can I say?!) and anything with tassels. They just give a boring outfit a little more ummphhhh. You know what I mean?

What are your umphhhh go-to’s?

Wearing H&M sweatshirt, H&M skirt, Saint Laurent Fringed Small Bucket Bag, Jimmy Choo Marlin boots & Ray-Ban Classic Wayfarer’s XL

AG Fall Denim

AG Fall Denim AG Fall Denim AG Fall Denim
I don’t know about you but I’m starting to get the fall itch. I feel ready for apple picking, pumpkin patches, autumn florals, warm drinks by the fireplace and most of all, fall clothing. I recently got my hands on AG’s fall denim collection and haven’t been able to take off this vintage inspired pair since. I love how extremely high waisted they are – it’s the perfect cut to be paired with cozy crop sweaters and half tuck long sleeves. Plus, they’re so versatile – I can bop around in them all day while working on lifestyle shoots for the blog then dress them up to host a dinner party at night.

Also on my denim wish list: wide legs.What denim are you looking forward to this fall?

I’m wearing: AG Sophia 4 Years Twilight Shredded, AG Rowan Blouse True Black, H&M belt and Balenciaga boots

Mornings are an important part of my day. I like to wake up early and wake up slow then fill the early hours with things that make me feel good: a cuddle session, hot water with lemon, a short walk, nutrient packed smoothies and an extra hot shower which is where I set my intentions (Pharrell and Paul McCartney do the same). What does that mean? Simply put, it’s like mapping out my thoughts and and actions for the day.

I’m not the only one who prioritizes a hot shower. Herbal Essences recently did a ‘Shower Power Survey’ and they found that nine out of 10 American women agree that taking time to enjoy their morning shower transforms the rest of their day AND that it is one of the few times during the day where they get to truly “escape.” Furthermore, 65% of American women think skipping a shower would have a worse impact on their day than skipping breakfast. They discovered that after an enjoyable shower experience 69% of women feel relaxed, 56% feel prepared for the day, 52% feel happy and 50% feel attractive.

Because the shower experience is such an important part of my day, the products I use are too. So, when Herbal Essences challenged me use their Wild Naturals shampoo/conditioner over the course of one week I was game. I had used Herbal Essences products in the past and loved how rejuvenating and energizing they made me feel.
