AJ Wears :: A Yellow Spotted Skirt

I wore a lot of ruffled skirts in my early 20s. And then I completely forgot about them until earlier this summer, when they suddenly resurfaced and came back into my life. Now I want to wear them every day, because they’re all cute and flirty and look really nice with a cropped tee.

AJ Wears :: A Grid Print Jumpsuit

Hello, it's hot outside now. Which means I face a daily struggle getting dressed for work. I want to look cute, but I don't want anything to touch my body. Okay, what I *really* want is to stay home and work in my pajamas, let's be real. 

Honestly, I should be utilizing services like Rent the Runway more often during the summer. They did a "Rent One, Get Two Free" (ROGTF? There's no ring to that) special recently so I rented a dress, skirt, and this jumpsuit for a few summery outfits. Because when you feel like wearing nothing, you might as well wear something completely the opposite.

AJ Wears :: A Merlot Sheath

A few weeks ago, I attended a fashion show event featuring Lafayette 148. It was still hot at that point, but FELT like it should be fall, so I rented this adorable wine-colored sheath to wear to the event. I love a fashion show, even more so one where they serve champagne for lunch. By the end of the runway show I didn't even feel my Spanx anymore! 

Dress, Likely via Rent the Runway (similar from Likely // similar for less!!).
Heels, Valentino (look for less from Charlotte Russe).
Bag, Balenciaga (similar from Rebecca Minkoff // similar from Express).
Earrings, Stella & Dot (exact).

And what kind of blogger would I be if I didn't share a few shots from the show? Here are some blurry, somewhat visible runway photos.

Love the looks of awe on these VIP ladies. I get it, I love pleats too.
