{Emerald Dress | Pantone Color of The Year}

I’m sorry I haven’t been around all week, it was crazy busy with work and I am also hosting an event next Saturday in LA. It’s been taking up so much of my time, but it will well be worth it. I really can’t wait!

This post was inspired by a piece I picked up at the TopShop shopping preview at The Grove. I love the color and print of this body conscious dress. Emerald was announced as the color of the season by Pantone, so I was happy to pick up a piece to add to my wardrobe.

It is somewhat of a tight dress but it’s still conservative; long sleeve and crew neck. I definitely recommend it for all shapes and sizes – it’s a flattering piece. There are so many ways to style it but I’m always a fan of layering with vests – jean vests, fur vest, you name it. I picked up the jean vest from Loehmanns for $20 – total score since it’s Current / Elliot. My new boots were also a great purchase since it’s end of the season. I love Chloe and these are by their diffusion line, SEE by Chloe.

If you read my blog often you know I definitely do not take myself too seriously and I am really a goof! We had a little fun at the end of our shoot trying to perfect the ‘jump’ pose. HA. Sometimes you just have to be a little silly, you know?!

Wishing you all a lovely weekend. I have plans to lay on the beach with friends today and bask in the sun (yay!), then an amazing wedding event for bloggers and media at the Bel Air Bay Club, Los Angeles tomorrow. My amazing brother bought me Lakers ticket, so that will be tomorrow night – I can hardly wait! I haven’t been to a Lakers game since a little girl. Follow me on Instagram at @stylewaxpoetic or comment below so we can stay in touch. I’d love to get to know you too. XO

{Ladylike Fashion in Los Angeles}

Lately, I’ve been inspired to travel, and I’ve been inspired by living in this great city, Los Angeles. What I enjoy is on any random occasion, you can meet someone from across the world, living here in LA. Not too long ago I met a German man who was visiting for just a few days. He had the most amazing sense of style and accompanied us to a Angeleno party. He wore a bold pair of mustard Levis, a black shirt and black sports coat  – something not many men would be brave enough to wear.  His pants were the talk of the party and it was clear had a sense great of style.  Quite the gentleman, as well. Today, I met an Italian man, which was part of the inspiration for today’s post. We’re having coffee this week and it’s a good reason to dress up a little more, as they do in Italy, right?!

Often times in Los Angeles we dress very casual, as overall, we live in a laid back culture. I sometimes wish that wasn’t the case. Something I appreciate about Europe is the elegance they exude due to the way they dress. Think Parisian women, of course, but also, Italians. Every so often, it’s nice to feel like a lady, elegant, classy, and chic. This outfit is appropriate for work or a chic brunch with girlfriends. I’m not saying I’m getting ride of my beanies and leather jackets, or edgy fashion, that will always be a part of me, but sometimes it’s nice to switch it up.

I hope you all enjoyed the weather this weekend! If you weren’t in Los Angeles, come visit us soon – it’s usually 72 and Sunny!  Also, wish me luck on my coffee date? Eeek :)

xoxo, SWP
