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
