Little Red Romper
The Style Sauce// Genevieve Liebscher urban outfitters red romper street style Venice Beach

It's officially Summer in Venice Beach, which means it's hot and everyone is hitting the beaches. While I love Summer the most, it's sometimes hard to find things that are comfortable in the warm weather but still pulled together. What I've noticed is that I usually reach for a romper like the one I'm wearing here. I must have at least 20 rompers. They're flattering in that they accentuate the waist. They're easy because you only need to pull on the one piece and you're done- no fussing with separates! They're comfortable and will keep you cool in even the warmest of weather, especially when they're strappy and open-backed like this one is. Lastly, you can almost always dress them up or down! On the weekends, I live in a romper like this one. During the day I'll pair with a cute sandal, and by night I'll wear a heeled bootie for dinner and drinks with friends. Needless to say, rompers and Summer go together like peas and carrots. (Yes- that was Forrest Gump reference)

This particular little red number happens to also be on sale at Urban Outfitters, and an absolute steal at just $40! Pair with a pair of round sunnies and a little brown bootie and you'll be set for any Sunday Funday during warmer months.

Check this one out, and shop some of my other favorite onesies below for all of your Summer-ing by the beach.

Rose Quartz

Pantone's colors for 2016, Serenity and Rose Quartz are everywhere right now, and I've certainly found my favorite in Rose Quartz. Whether it's hats, dresses, or bags (like the one I've featured here from Flat Iron) I just keep reaching for the color pink! Pink is always tricky to wear, it can look much too frilly or gaudy if not styled correctly. I find that I usually like to anchor pink with black, or a dark grey. (I did this also in a post from last year, Think Pink.) It's a great way to have masculine and feminine colors meet each other. Think James Dean meets Barbie, ha! For this outfit I also am sporting my new favorite Page boy hat that I can't help but wear all of the time. While I still love my fedoras, it's a fresh silhouette of hat that has open a whole new realm of possibilities of outfits. I love the unexpected edge it gives even a t-shirt and jeans look.

I also find it looks great with a turtleneck or mock neck a la Kate Moss (below)

 

...Or as I've styled it in these photos here! For this series, I also did an alternate version with no hat and a pair of lace up heels I've been living in since I got them on sale at Nordstrom.

For the shoot, I met with Jasmine Ayala in Beverly Hills. She did an amazing job of capturing the gorgeous aesthetic of the Rodeo Drive area at twilight. Of course, I couldn't resist doing some shopping while we were there too! Let me know what you think of the look, and tell me how you're wearing Rose Quartz this year, too!

Autumn in New York

There's a reason there's so many songs written about it. Fall in New York is indescribable. I already knew New York was my favorite city, but this time around being there during October really made me fall in love (no pun intended ;)) I'm not sure if it's the incredible food and coffee, the briskness in the air, the orange and yellow leaves, football and baseball on TV, or a combination of all of these things, but New York is absolutely amazing in Autumn. When we took the photos in this post I had literally walked all over the city- roughly 10 miles- exploring different burroughs by foot. While downtown Soho/ Tribeca/ Nolita area is my favorite, we ended our day in Central Park after walking up the High Line (definitely something all visitors to NYC should do!). Us Southern Californians have a shortage of leaves changing color and it was worth the trip up town to see.  By the end of the day I was physically exhausted but mentally exhilarated, an affect that this city just always seems to have on you. Actually, I am so stricken and in love with New York that I plan to move there within the next year, so that's something I'm really looking forward to! 

As for what I'm wearing in this post, when I was preparing myself for a day turned to night in New York, layers were the answer. It was pretty mild during the day but got cool at night. I had flat boots on to walk the city but changed into the heeled Sam Edelman ones you see here to meet friends for drinks that evening. It's the kind of thing that's very Uptown meets Downtown depending on the shoe you have on and maybe the amount of eyeliner, ha. Also, this cape/poncho/whateveryouwanttocallit- it's from last Fall, but such a classic and I'm still seeing them all over for this year's shopping. I love feeling like I can wear pieces like this year after year and still be fashion forward and put together. It's a great feeling when you don't have to throw away a favorite from last year, isn't it? I'm putting some similar ones in the shop gallery below if any of you are looking for something similar to purchase now. I'd highly recommend a piece like this especially in a tartan or plaid which is so timeless and classic. 

What are some of your places to go and shop in New York? I would love to hear for next time I'm in the Big Apple.  I could go on and on about New York's fashion and my favorite places there,  but I'll save that until I actually make the move from West Coast to East- stay tuned ;)
