3 Ways to Wear It: Plaid Shirts

With the return of school and fall creeping around the corner, plaid shirts are once again making a comeback. I think we can all agree that plaid shirts are a must-have for everyday wear because they can be worn countless ways with almost every style. So today I am showing you guys how to style one plaid shirt three different ways.

1. The first way I styled my plaid shirt is the good ol’ tie around the waist. This is definitely the easiest way to incorporate plaid into your look, and it adds a laid-back vibe to your outfit.


 2. The second way is a bit more on the preppy side. I started by throwing a simple grey sweater over my plaid shirt. I dressed up the outfit with a pavé statement necklace and some lace-up booties.


 3. The third, and final, way I styled my plaid button up is by far my fave, and that’s to just layer, layer, LAYER. I paired my shirt with a breezy olive dress and a denim vest for a girly twist on a somewhat rustic look.


So the next time you’re in a fashion rut and just can’t find something to wear, throw on a plaid shirt and put your own unique twist on the classic clothing piece.

Isabella Rose Taylor at NYFW

One of our favorite new fashion designers, Isabella Rose Taylor, just survived her first runway show at New York Fashion Week! Lucky for everyone, she kept a video diary to share with her fans:

Want to learn more about IRT? You know you do.

I’m starting a new series called Sporty in September to show you guys how to style sporty outfits.  For my first look I thought we would start with a very basic outfit.

I kept the outfit monochromatic to highlight my green snapback. To add a little girly flavor—but still keep it edgy—I went with a darker lip color. (Rebel by M·A·C)

Do you like the idea of having monthly series posts? LMK in the comments!

OOTD: Farmers Market

Hello, hello! Sadly school has begun, which means homework, studying and lots of stress. To take away school stress, I took a trip to a local farmers market.

There’s something so relaxing and comforting about the farmers market. Maybe it’s the fresh flowers, the delicious smell of croissants, or the juicy samples of peaches and strawberries. Nevertheless, going to the Farmers market has become one of my favorite Saturday Morning activities.

For a farmers market OOTD, I decided to wear something comfy yet stylish (always the perfect combo). So I kept it casual with a pair of boyfriend jeans and paisley printed tank. I slipped on some metallic sandals and was ready to go!


As you can see, coffee was a must to start the day!

I went light on the accessories with a dainty necklace and brown satchel.


I’d love to hear where y’all go to escape on Saturday Mornings!

It’s one of the best times during your high school experience, and what we look forward to at the beginning of every school year: Homecoming. Now that you ladies have gone through hundreds of dresses and maybe even hundreds of dollars to ensure that your night is perfect, it’s time to think about what your date will wear. Some may argue that it’s more difficult for ladies to get ready for formal events, but us gentlemen don’t fall too far behind. It’s tough for us, too.

Nordstrom Homecoming for Him

Let’s break down a homecoming look that anyone’s date will look like a king in:

Whether your date is a traditionalist or a guy who thinks outside the box, this look is fantastic. I paired a classic slim-fit black blazer with comfortable Topman Skinny Fit Trousers, then added a pop of color with a vibrant purple dress shirt. For guys who like to keep things more low-key, a white dress shirt would look just as sharp.

To finish off, I opted for a silver watch and a Ted Baker bow tie. A colorful bow tie definitely separates you from everyone else in the room and really solidifies your individuality.


For a stylish twist on the classic tuxedo, leather sleeves and lapels take things to the next level. I chose a cream-colored shirt and my favorite python dress shoes to complete the look.


You don’t always have to conform to society or play by the rules: The best part about fashion is there aren’t any rules!

Enjoy your homecoming!

Shopping for the perfect homecoming look for can be quite stressful. I mean do you go for a more glam look? Or what about an edgy urban feel? But wait, there is also something to love about simple elegance… The possibilities are endless! Well, have no fear because I’ve put together three different looks that will hopefully help with all that dress stress.

1. White Hot
This stunning white dress is the epitome of elegance. Paired with a  crystal clutch, some simple diamond studs, and classic nude pumps you’ll be radiating chic sophistication all night long.

Even though what you wear to homecoming may seem like the most important thing ever, it’s really all about the memories you make. So don’t forget to laugh a lot, dance endlessly and enjoy every second of the the night.

Friday Dance Party

Happy Friday! This video has been out for over a month, but we just got around to watching it and HOLY SMOKES LOOK AT THAT GUY DANCE.

P.S. The dancer’s name is Phillip Chbeeb (a.k.a. PacMan), and he’s all over the internet right now. He was on season 5 of  “So You Think You Can Dance.” We feel a little dumb for arriving so late to this party, but we’re glad we finally got here.

Friday Night Lights

As many of you may know football season has just begun and on Friday, September 5th, my school played our arch rivals. It was a close game and my school just barely won in the last 15 seconds of the game ending with 24-17! I want to share this exciting experience with you guys so here are some photos from the game.




Did I mention that I’m a flyer?

 Hey y’all! Fall is still plenty hot in SoCal, and to beat the heat there is nothing better than a cool dress. Today I styled one of my favorite dresses three different ways:

1. Easy Does It


Here is the most effortless look. Just the dress, some leather boots, a black crossbody bag and few accessories. I absolutely love this dress. The bright, pool-blue color and the daisy cutouts are perfect for the brilliant days of late summer.



2. The Cold Shoulder


I switched up the look with an airy white cold-shoulder top. I love the delicacy and simplicity of this top. At a petite height of 4’11″, this is one of those “too short as a dress but too long as a top” kinda situations. So wearing it over this dress was the perfect solution!


3. Get Cozy

Ok, so you know that weird transition period between summer and fall? (Like right now?) It’s still hot, but the leaves are getting darker and now you can wear those deep fall colors that you’ve been longing for. My third look is for that “Indian summer” time. Here I wore the same dress, but now with a cozy maroon sweater. If you’re still chilly (which is highly unlikely here in the valley), you can add a warm scarf.

Today we’re taking it back to some comfortable roots with an essential plaid shirt. If you don’t have one (or more) of these in your closet, read up:

heroplaid shirt | $38

Why we love it:

It’s classic. Think about it: Have plaid shirts ever not been cute? This is the type of shirt that girls like us have been wearing for decades.

It’s comfy. This baby is 100% cotton. The soft fabric combined with the cute and easy fit makes this shirt your go-to for everyday comfort.

It’s a little bit country. We can’t help but channel a little Wild West spirit in these plaid shirts. But the beauty of plaid is you can style it however you want. You can go country, preppy, punk or anywhere in between.

And it comes in more colors!
