Just a super quick post today with an outfit from a few weeks back. So into this overall trend right now— any one-piece you can just throw on and go is gold in my book.

Speaking of effortless dressing, I got an exclusive sneak peek at the Cuyana fall lookbook a few weeks back, and it's full of easy, everyday essentials in luxurious fall textures. Think silk, leather, and alpaca. The collection launches today, so take a look here, and check back soon for a collaboration!

Beautiful Things

My love affair with bralettes has long been documented on my blog— lace, cutouts, asymmetric straps, you name it, I probably have it. I remember Cosabella being one of the first lingerie brands to begin the bralette revolution, as I'm going to call it, and to make me start considering the bralette as an option outside of structured, padded bras. Now, I would say I wear bralettes about 80% of the time, and am thrilled to finally own some timeless Cosabella pieces! Their pieces are handmade in Italy using their signature stretch lace, and I already know they'll stand the test of time.

The sheer trench is my new closet obsession. I find them tricky to style, especially in white, but I absolutely love the double cape-like layer on the back of this one, which I think makes it more this-is-actually-outerwear and less I'm-wearing-a-sleep-robe. The weather is still warm enough to throw it over summer basics— I even wore it over my swimsuit to the beach during our trip down the coast the other weekend!

And this necklace! I've been all over the Dylanlex trend, as I'm sure many of you are. But with prices upward of $1000 (!), I had to resort to finding the best inspired piece. So far, this is the best one I've found on the market. (And just found this great one too for a bit more of an investment.) Not much of a silver-wearer these days after switching hardcore to gold-toned jewelry a couple of years ago, but I'm making an exception for this one!

A more obvious title for this post would have been "No White After Labor Day," but let's be honest, white on white is my fave combo all year long. Now let's talk about these One Teaspoon shorts— they're perfectly shredded, unbelievably soft, and effortlessly slouchy. I finally get what all the hype is over One Teaspoon denim. And all Aussie labels, for that matter. DailyLook has a great selection of some of my favorite Aussie brands, including CameoBless'ed are the Meek, Finders Keepers, and Keepsake to name just a few.

In other news, I spent the holiday weekend relaxing down the coast in Big Sur. I first made my way down there last year, and this time made sure to hit up this spot that I've been dying to see— did not disappoint!
