All The Festival Fashion From The STS Blue X StyleCon

STS Blue X Stylecon Unicorn

I love parties and denim (seriously who doesn’t?). So, I was thrilled to attend the STS Blue X StyleCon festival season kickoff event at the Hotel Indigo in Downtown Los Angeles last week. If you’ve been following my Instagram, you’ve probably seen some of the photos from the party. I know it's been borderline thirsty, but were so many pretty backgrounds, how could I not? (I. CAN’T. HELP. LOVING. ALL. THE. PRETTY. BACKGROUNDS)

STS Blue X Stylecon Step and Repeat

While parties are fun, can we pause and talk seriously for like half a second? To be honest, I have a little confession. I find jean shopping just about as much fun as waiting in line to pee at Starbucks. (Not just the line, but when you actually get to the bathroom, it's always a nightmare.) But STS Blue jeans fit me so perfectly, jean shopping drama is a thing of the past. OVER IT! This is because their denim stretches to fit my body (and yours) perfectly. Also, I’m not the tallest person and so I normally have to get everything hemmed, but not STS. The only person I know who doesn’t like STS Blue is my tailor, who may be sending out a search party for me as you read this because I haven't seen her in forever.

Denim For Days

STS has so many cute things like these Emma Distressed Skinny jeans in Optic White. Break the rules and don’t wait for Memorial Day to wear this color.  Wear them now! Like this second.

STS also has lots of denim shorts. These have the same signature stretch as the pants do and they make your butt look it should be on the cover of a magazine. This season, I’m all about wearing the black Rose Bowl Distressed Denim Shorts.

I also live in their denim jackets. I just got the Alexis Ruffle Oversize Boyfriend Jacket for spring, which I had customized to make extra special. What a great gift idea or maybe for your sorority.

I also have the Avery Boyfriend Jacket, which is a little less girly. It's also super comfortable. Sometimes, I’ll wear it with a sweatshirt and leggings to go to Pilates. But not spin. Obviously...

Next Level Festival Chic

Ten Sixity Sherman and Madison and Berkely

I was so excited to meet the team from sister labels Madison & Berkely and Ten Sixty Sherman. If you need anything you would describe as festival chic or even festival fabulous, these brands will be your new best friends. Check my Instagram tomorrow (or maybe now depending on when you are reading this) to see a few of my favorite pieces.

Don't Forget Accessories

Gretchen Christine was another sponsor of the party. Designed by Real Housewife, Gretchen Rossi (who, not to brag but I’ve met her IRL and she is super nice) designs these beautiful vegan leather handbags. She also has an awesome vegan nail polish collab with Twila True.

There were so many other fab brands involved with the event including Indi, H2R0se, Billion Dollar Brows, Suja Kumbuca, Neocell, Jet Suite X, and Heroes Beauty.

And Extra Karma Points...

But the purpose of the event wasn't just about fashion or Coachella. It also benefitted Shannon Elizabeth’s Animal Avengers organization. If you want to help them out on the regular, you can round up the pennies from your credit card purchases using the Coin Up app. 

***Special thanks to Speechless Dresses for the romper I wore to this event.

F-it Fridays: Everyone Loves A Denim Jacket

denim-1550266_1280.jpg

If there is one universal piece of clothing that everyone needs, especially for fall, and legit flatters all body types, its the denim jacket. They are always on trend, comfortable and there are very few things they don’t work with. I even wear mine with activewear instead of a sweatshirt sometimes (for post-Pilates, not post-spin). Here are a few of my faves right now. Don't forget to f-it because it's Friday, buy yourself a treat for making it through the week.

J.Crew's Denim Jacket in Newton Wash  is a happy medium between light and dark denim. Classically styled with well-curated details like these copper buttons, you can't really go wrong.

If you like a classic cut, but a stretch fabric, this DG2 by Diane Gilman Virtual Stretch Classic Denim Jacket checks all of the boxes. It's also affordable enough that if you drink too much at happy hour and leave it somewhere, you won't hate yourself in the morning. But, the person who steals it from you will be one stylish jerk.

If you can't decide between light and dark denim, why be forced to choose? Helmut Lang's Mixed Jean Jacket takes ombre to a new level and looks like it was designed to be an Instagram post.

Trucker style denim jackets are bigger than semis this year.  I'm loving this one from BP by Nordstrom. Just don't accessorize with a trucker hat. That would be taking it too far.

If plain denim just won't do, check out this absolutely adorable patchwork jacket from BLANKNYC at Revolve

BB Dakota's MIA Denim Jacket has a faux fur collar for those slightly windy fall days. Because the collar is detachable, it's like getting two jackets in one!

F-It Fridays: Your Weekly Dose of Retail Therapy (Casual AF to Causal Chic Edition)

I know I’ve written a lot about rompers and it’s because I’m obsessed with them. I thought for this F-it Friday, I’d share one of my favorite new ones with you and how to create an entire outfit around it. You know, taking the romper from I- romped-around-until-4-in-the-moring-and-just-woke-up-so-I’m-casual-AF to Casual Chic.

So, I am not normally an American Eagle shopper. In fact, I can’t even tell you where one is. But, I was half asleep and very likely drunk on Instagram when I saw this one someone’s post. I wish I could remember whose account it was, but I don’t. I had to have it. Luckily, I didn’t even have to get out of bed to grab a credit card and buy it (which probably wasn’t going to happen anyway) because it turns out AE takes Paypal. Yay! It’s been one of my favorite pieces ever since. And it’s currently on sale

Here are some ideas to dress up and accessorize this romper or any romper.

I love a classic Jack Rogers Sandal or if you need a little height, a wedge

Throw on a jean jacket, especially if you are wearing a romper at night. I love this one from Madewell. Everyone should have a classic jean jacket in their wardrobe. If you don’t have one, I can’t imagine how you stay warm on breezy summer nights or when some annoying person blasts the AC. 

Add a fun with a tote like this one from Draper James. I love this straw bag for summer. It’s causal, but put together. Because it’s roomy and more importantly lined, you can actually put things in it that aren’t your wallet, keys and half a lip gloss. I would even use it as a carry-on bag for a beach vacay. 

Consider a tassel fob to look extra put together. Nothing says, “I actually care about details,” more than this tiny accessory.

Because rompers are causal, a little jewelry will let others know you didn’t just roll out of bed, even if you did. I like a turquoise necklace for the summer, particularly this Judith Ripka Baguette Doublet Pendant Necklace

Always have a bangle on your wrist. Kate Spade’s Feather Bangle coordinates well.

Have a great weekend! And don’t forget, F-it, it’s Friday, so buy yourself a present for getting through the week!
