Vest is a great transition piece for fall. It extends life of our beloved summer clothes, keeps us warm without adding bulk.

As you can see from today’s featured four looks of Olivia Palermo, a neutral hip-length fur vest is so versatile, you can throw it over a shirt, sweater or jacket, team it with sexy pencil skirt, tough leather leggings, glamorous silk pants or casual jeans for various occasions.

With the hot Friends & Family events going on among beloved online boutiques like Shopbop and Saks Fifth Avenue, no better time than now to stock up on some fashion staples for our fall wardrobe!

Back to Basics: Timeless White Blazer (Part V)

Today’s featured item is the most requested one in our “Back to Basics” series: the white blazer. There is no need to say more about how essential it is, so let’s go directly to our “style class”.

As a basic and staple piece, there are countless ways to wear a white blazer (check out related post here & here, you can always search “white blazer” at my home page for more inspirations), today I want to share with you two of my favorites this season:

First one is an all-white look from Laura Whitmore. Head-to-toe white is right on trend now, and I love how she used black accessories to play with the black/white trend as well, resulting a fresh, modern, high-impact ensemble.

Like we shared here, for simple color palette like this, details really matters: her artful layering necklaces add a whimsical & luxe touch, sheer blouse and pointy-toe pumps infuse sexiness, while distressed jeans grounding the polished vibe.

Esther Adams’s retro chic pairing is definitely what I would wear now since the whole fashion world is turning back for inspirations. High-waisted wide-leg jeans teamed with platforms are leg-elongating. Striped top and vintage looking brown crossbody bag enhance the overall retro vibe. Choose a cropped blazer if you are not as tall as Esther Adams.

Both looks are great for women of any age (for 40s and above, change Laura Whitmore’s distressed jeans to a basic white one or straight leg version for a more polished look). Also, for those of you who want to add some cheerful spring color, these are very similar outfits featured on Miranda Kerr & Rosie Huntington-Whiteley for you!

Summer Vacation Packing Essentials

Being “trapped” in my pregnancy, I didn’t even realize that vacation season is right around the corner! Thank dear reader & friend Joanie for reminding me to write an entry about getaway essentials and packing tips.

Going to college thousands of miles away from home, busy vacation plans and moving to a foreign country to start my life formed my habit of packing light. The key is planning your outfits ahead according to your travel plan, choosing items that can be mixed and matched with each other, using accessories to spice up or transform a look.

For a summer vacation, I love ethereal, light weight pieces with exotic details and natural fabric. Below are my vacation packing essentials from clothing to accessories to beauty products, hope can give you some inspiration for your coming vacation! The best part about all the pieces I picked below: they can go with each other easily and stylishly, and they are ageless–I can picture myself wearing the same outfits in my 30s and 40s.

For clothing, as I mentioned earlier, the key to packing light is making sure every piece can be mixed and matched without sacrifice style. Below I have five pieces (except swimwear) for six different outfits:

Denim cutoffs can be worn with the light weight sweater or crisp white blouse for city sightseeing, shopping, or brunch. Pair the tops with a trendy green side-stripe silk pants, you get two stylish night-out outfits, they are also comfy enough on the plane. As for the printed maxi dress, wear it as a beach cover-up, with white blouse for a fresh day-time look, or with the sweater when the weather gets chilly, and the list goes on…

Summer Vacation Packing Essentials,beauty essentials, fashion essentials, summer getaway must haves, bright printed swimwear, bikini, lightweight striped sweater, open knit sweater, denim shorts, denim cut offs, printed maxi dress, silk light weight blouse, sheer blouse, white button down shirt, side stripe silk pants, lose fitted pants, silk pants, Body GloveBody Glove - Smoothies Baby Love Triangle Top,  Siwy Camilla Cutoff Shorts, Equipment Signature Blouse ,  JOSA tulum Houston Cover Up Dress,  Loft Textural Tie Back Sweater,  Tibi Spectator Track Pant,   helenhou, helen hou, the art of accessorizing, accessoriseart, celebrity style,   street style, lookbook, model off-duty,red carpet looks,red carpet looks for less,   fashion, style, outfits, fashion guru, style guru, fashion stylist, what to wear,   fashion expert, blogger, style blog, fashion blog,look of the day, celebrity   look,celebrity outfit,designer shoes, designer cloth,designer handbag,

  1. Body Glove top & Carve Designs bottom (I also got the top in blue and red, with both sides bottom, I have six different bikini looks with these four pieces)
  2. Siwy shorts (great style here; For those of you in your 40s and want something less distressed, this pair is a great option)
  3. Equipment signature blouse (similar on sale here; wear with shorts, pants or dress, or simply as beach cover-up)
  4. JOSA cover up dress (similar print here & here)
  5. Loft sweater (a light weight sweater is my vacation must-have, great for unpredictable weather, can be easily mixed with others, also is a great beach cover-up)
  6. Tibi silk pant (comfy to wear on the plane, stylish during the vacation, versatile to be dressed up or down; now 20% off with code SPRINGBASICS) 

For accessories, below are my must-haves: a pair of comfortable sandals for walking around, stylish sunglasses that can provide full protection against all UV rays; a straw hat that can protect our skin, also are great for bad hair days; a trusty scarf to keep us warm whenever needed; a vibrant tote that is roomy, easy to carry around and can brighten up our outfit; a stylish clutch for night out and a statement jewelry piece to add just the right amount of glamour. And all of them go perfectly with the 6 to 7 outfits we planned above.

  1. Sam Edelman sandals (comfy to walk in; the snake-skin print and glitter heel also make it great for night; also I always take my trusty ballet flats with me)
  2. J.Crew hat (25% off with code SPINGBEST)
  3. Reiss chain bracelet
  4. BCBG Max Azriz clutch
  5. Karen Walker the number one sunglasses (also adore the rounded shape here)
  6. Chan Luu scarf
  7. MICHAEL Michael Kors travel tote (also here)

Beauty products can easily take up too much precious luggage space. My solution is taking those are multi functional: Beauty elixir that can double as serum, Argan oil that can be used on skin, hair and nails, sunscreen that is for both face and body, cream with five-in-one formula… Of course, choose small bottles when traveling.
