So Knotty. (Get it? Like Naughty? That's for you, Betsy)

Do you guys remember back in grade school when the cool thing to do was to take your t-shirt, loop it through the neck and pull down for that ever-so-sexy 4th grade crop tee look? If you didn't do this, then you weren't nearly slutty enough on the playground. But maybe you opted for the side knot that left a little more to the imagination? Very classy of you. I really did love a good knotted t-shirt back in the day. This was mainly because I made it a personal goal to show my midriff every single day from 6th grade to 12th grade. Mission accomplished. (My personal apologies to Mr. Wheat).

Well now that cropped tees are back and midriffs are everywhere again, I've also seen a sudden uprising of the knotted look. Needless to say, I'm mega pumped. V-neck tees, loose tanks, long skirts, heck anything with a little extra fabric can now be made into a '90s flashback with the twist of a simple knot. Today I'm sporting a knotted printed v-neck, I'm thinking about wearing a knotted skirt tomorrow.. Heck, maybe I'll knot something for every day of the week! I'm crazy!

Take your inspiration from these knotty ladies. Wink.

Oh and I threw in this awkward 90s photo of the knot to remind you of how great it looked back in the day. Sexy, no?


Send me to Australia

Recently I have taken a liking to everything Australian. No seriously, they have my favorite fashion blogs, favorite up-and-coming designers, favorite...kangaroos? You get the point though, for some reason the Aussies can do no wrong when it comes to fashion. One of our Australian lines- KAHLO- blows my mind on a daily basis. And the designer is one of the cutest, most friendly girls you will ever meet! So Australians are fashionable, pretty and nice?? So unfair!

Long story short, I came across an Australian blog called Harper and Harley, and I was immediately obsessed. She is adorbs and everything she posts is right up my style alley!

So this is my ode to Australia with pics from Harper and Harley blog.


Work Wear

So one great thing about working in the fashion industry (at least the LA fashion industry, no clue about those crazy New Yorkers) is the laid back work fashion. My fashion "wardrobe" if you can even call it that usually consists of jean shorts, whatever shirt I grab from my closet and a pair of boots or flats. Sometimes I'll mix it up with a dress or jean here or there, but seriously, I dress the same for work as I would to make a quick run to the store. It's pretty awesome. But like everything in my life, I start looking at the grass being greener on the other side. Now I'm kind of sad that I can't get all glammed up on a daily basis. But seriously, going casual is so much easier, I know. I know. However, below are some looks that I would rock if I wasn't lazy and/or was forced to dress nicer for work.

On a different note, who's excited for Bachelor Pad tonight? Should I be embarrassed about how much I like this show? Probably, but I hear there is going to be a crazy fight involving Kasey (he's a lunatic), Jake and even Melissa (she's straight nuts, too). So exciting.

Hope you had a good Monday!
