Go The Blazer Way

[Chelsae Anne | Photographer]

If you only buy ten one new piece this season, it should be a blazer.

Per usual, I purchased this blazer from Neiman Marcus on impulse for New York Fashion Week. Why? Because to me blazers are like the magic piece in your wardrobe that will instantly pull together any outfit. Not only do they come in a multitude of styles, but it’s functionality is undeniable – you will get so many miles out of a blazer! I.E. the perfect item(s) to stuff pack in your overweight suitcase for Fashion Week.

If there’s one thing that stirs up excitement and frenzy in my bank account the fashion community, it’s when a major designer collaborates with a department store to create a limited-edition capsule collection…

Happy Wednesday everyone!

As we speak, I’m en-route to NYC for Fashion Week and could not be more excited to share a ton of great outfits this year, many of which were inspired by bold colors, feminine silhouettes and the late 80’s slash early 90’s. Fashion Week is a time where you are supposed to “play up” your style so I figured, why not push the envelope and go for it. So, stay tuned for a lot of exciting looks this week!

Look of the Day: Black Dress

DRESS, GUCCI WEDGES: (c/o) Neiman Marcus/BAG: old – similar here and here/SCARF: old – similar here/EARRINGS: vintage Chanel

Fact: Black never goes out of style. Everyone knows this. Fact: Though simple, a black dress can be flattering and perfect for almost every occasion. I mean, if there’s a single color that’s unanimously loved, it’s always black. And a woman’s closet is not complete without black… and more specifically a black dress.

And cue today’s look of the day!

Overall, I love them…

OVERALLS, MULES, BUCKET BAG, SCARF, EARRINGS: (c/o) Express/OPTIONAL: White blouse

Three years ago, when I first started my blog, I took a vow that I would never feature overalls on The Style Bungalow. And look at me now.

I don’t know why I was so strongly opposed to wearing overalls when I used to wear jumpsuits all the time? Perhaps it was because overalls reminded me of my awkward middle school years and being teased? Or perhaps it’s because I look much younger than I actually am (we’ll save that topic for another day) and the thought of wearing overalls always felt… adolescent… to me?

Who knows?

Hello, hello! Happy Thursday everyone!

I CAN’T believe we’re less than two weeks away from fashion’s biggest week of the year – New York Fashion Week! I’ve spent the past 48 hours planning like a mad woman. Shopping. Organizing. Making appointments. Booking tickets. You name it. It takes an insane amount of organization to make NYFW look effortless – but I wouldn’t have it any other way!

So get ready! I plan to debut lots and LOTS of new outfits. Most of which, will be carefully curated by yours truly – think, lots of bold colors (I’ve been drawing so much inspiration from color lately), stripes, feminine skirts and dresses and vintage jewelry.

Lightweight Jacket

JACKET, CAP SLEEVE TOP, SHORTS, SANDALS, EARRINGS: (c/o) Ann Taylor/BAG: old – from flea market!/WATCH: (c/o) Michele Watches

As summer winds down and the weather starts to cool, a lightweight jacket is a must to navigating breezy nights on the beach with friends and the approaching new season…

Wait. Who am I kidding? I live in Florida – it’s bound to be scorching hot for another two more months. Aye… * sigh *

SO for those who live outside of Florida, today’s post is for you. If there’s one lightweight outerwear style you should consider now, it’s this one from Ann Taylor.

Self-Worth it

[Chelsae Anne | Photographer]

DRESS: Self-Portrait/BAG: Gucci – similar here, here and here/SANDALS: Gucci/EARRINGS: vintage Chanel/HAT: similar here

I must admit, today’s outfit was a bit of an “impulse” buy. As I was scrolling through Nordstrom for outfits to feature during the Takeover, I saw this dress by Self-Portrait and without hesitation clicked, “add to shopping bag.” Why? Because every time I wear a Self-Portrait dress, I not only feel feminine and beautiful, but so impressed with the quality. Therefore, making the dress 100% worth it.

(Heads up, this dress runs small – I’m wearing an XS and it fits me perfectly but I’m also very petite. If you’re worried about sizing, I suggest ordering a size up or ordering two/returning one. Nordstrom has a fantastic return policy!)

Felt so me…

DRESS: Caroline Constas – here and here/SANDALS: here, here, similar here and here/BASKET: (c/o) Linderoth Designs in Palm Beach – love this one and this one too!/EARRINGS: J.Crew – similar here

What. A. Week.

It started with my Liketoknow.it takeover! I knew it would be an incredible opportunity to show 2.5 million followers everything Palm Beach has to offer as well as my style so I went ALL OUT and shared 10 brand new outfits that I felt would resonate with many styles, budgets and body types. Yes, it was a TON of hard work but so worth it. Shout out to my photographer, @ChelsaeAnne, for staying up all night the day before the takeover to edit those pictures! Girl, you’re amazing.

Within days, I gained thousands of new followers from all over the world. And next thing you know, my IG hit 100k. Immediately, my boyfriend (who doesn’t have an IG lol), friends and family sent text messages congratulating me. It felt amazing. A real milestone…

More midis, please!

SWEATER, MIDI SKIRT, GUCCI SANDALS: Nordstrom/GUCCI BAG: love this one here, here and here/WATCH: (c/o) Michele Watches/EARRINGS: vintage Chanel

Heavy in rotation for the past few years since starting my blog, midi skirts have become one of my all-time favorite closet staples. I have like ten. Maybe twenty? #ThisIsANoJudgementZone They’re fresh and feminine. Demure and proper. And like a hunter in the wild, I can spot them a mile away at department stores, just like I did with this designer version from ALC. #attack
