Tall Story Maxi Dress

Wal G maxi dress,Aldo sandals, World Market clutch, Threadsence crystal pendant

Meet Wal G -a fresh new label out of London. If you're an avid Fait Boum reader (thanks, by the way!), you've seen their bright summer hues before.

Who is the WalG customer?
"The WalG girl has an undeniable confidence which consistently translates through her wardrobe choices. She likes desirable silhouettes, edgy prints and classic comfort. With an admirable love for mixing dressed-up and dressed-down styles she maintains elegance in an effortless way."

This is a brand I can get behind. Peruse their online shop &you'll find perfectly tailored pieces that embody the ease of day-to-night chic. Pops of color in classic, flattering silhouettes; comfortable, quality fabrics and zippers; strappy cami dresses; floral jumpsuits.It's sometimes difficult for me to find a great fit because I'm so tall. The tie-back waist on this maxi hits me at the perfect spot, as do the hem and slit of the skirt. This is of no effort on my part, WalG just seems to have a brilliant design team.

I'm thrilled to partner up with their brand, to have the opportunity to share their aesthetic with all of you lovelies. Every girl needs a few exceptional wardrobe staples to build upon in her closet, classic pieces that can be layered upon as the seasons change. Somehow this vibrant green has me envisioning Christmas, looking forward to drinking good wine with good people at a few holiday parties; yet at the same time, it's the perfect fit for a summer lunch date.

San Diego Photo Diary

Vintage blouse, SheInside shorts, H&M tank, H&M sandals

Had a spontaneous little roadtrip down to San Diego to visit my girlfriends. The bustle of city life was a welcome change of pace. It's nice to be able to sneak away, stick my toes in the Pacific, and relax with my loves.

Brighter Than Sunshine

YA Los Angeles cage dress, Aldo gladiator sandals

It's been a nice, busy week. I had my first salon appointment in forever to get my hair touched up and chopped off. (By "chopped off," I'm only talking 3-4 inches - as you can see, not much change, but it feels so much lighter & healthier now. Good changes.) I always get great tips from my stylist, Melissa. She told me about the Wet Brush that I had a giveaway for, and that I wrote about in my article on Makeoverly.com back in June. This week's recommendations were the Perfecter Fusion Styler for loose blow-dry-look curls (it's a bit like a curling iron without the clamp, with a hairbrush design), and Moroccanoil Smooth, a blow dry styling lotion for all day smooth, frizz free hair, even in humidity. At the salon, they had a fantastic lounge-y station playing on Pandora radio. I had one of those "I used to love this song! Who sings it?!" moments. Aqualung. Not the Jethro Tull song, but the musician (aka Matt Hales). If you've never heard his work, do yourself a favor and check out his hit singles Brighter Than Sunshine and Strange & Beautiful. They are beautiful tracks, and were an anthem for my high school days. The entire album is brilliant, and for old time's sake it's on a heavy rotation at my house this week.

My mama had a birthday yesterday, so we had a little family dinner. These photos were taken before the night out. This dress is just about two years old, but the chartreuse color and the caged cut-out back are still very much in style. I always love a good cut-out piece that allows my tattoos to get a little sunshine. And let's be totally honest here: these shoes are over five years old. They're loose, and they're super loud when I walk on a hard surface, but I just can't bring myself to toss them out yet.

Do you have a favorite worn out pair of shoes or item of clothing that you've hung on to for so long? Or am I the only hoarder out there?

I'll be in San Diego all weekend, keep up with me on Instagram!
