Even if you’re not away at the beach, you can still channel your favorite exotic destination with some leafy prints. This isn’t your typical floral – it’s got personality! Not only are the prints hot, but so are the silhouettes they’re available in. I adore this green & black foliage print from Zara with a 50s/60s voluminous vibe. They are having a huge summer sale so it’s a great chance to stock up.

I paired it with accessories in various shades of green. You don’t have to be matchy match with your colors. If it’s in the same color family, it goes and the different hues add interest. I simply adore this statement necklace I got from J.Crew. It’s got two of my favorite shades – blush and mint. And I got it for a deep discount at $55 down from $138. Shopping tip: If you are ever at the Grove in LA, they have the best deals that I’ve found from J.Crew. Plus, much of their cold weather stuff is usually discounted way earlier than in the Midwest/East coast.

I topped off my look with a leather jacket I got from TopShop. Well, it’s leather-like. But it looks so close to the real thing. At $100, I finally have a leather jacket I can throw on without having to spend hundreds of dollars. If you’ve been dying for the leather look, but can’t afford the real thing, definitely try this one out!

It was another wonderful day shooting with the fabulous Taylor of Kalhu Photography. The cut of my dress immediately reminded me of the one Sandy wore in Grease on her date with Danny. Paired with the leather jacket, I knew a diner would be the perfect spot to shoot. So Taylor suggested we head downtown to the City Diner. Right next to the Fox Theatre, it’s a great spot for a late night bite after the show.
