You would never guess summer is coming to an end with these over 100 temps!  To combat the late summer heat I need a nice easy summer dress and this mark. Style Safari dress is perfect.  It features a fit and flare style thats not only flattering but keeps you cooler.  The blue, white, black and grey safari paisley print is super fun and fitting for late August.  The contrasting design at the waist defines while the piping gives a flattering illusion.

Red, white and blue is actually all happening in this dress but I amped up it’s late summer style with a red lip and white accents in addition to my leaf jewelry (mark., old).  I’m wearing the mark. All Butter Now Lip Treat in Fired Up for my red.

If you follow that “can’t wear white after Labor Day” rule you better get it in all now, because these white accents are white hot!  These mark. So Clear To Me lucite heels have been a summer staple in the world of alicia, along with this mark. Total Perfection bag.  (see here, here and here).

This safari style outfit definitely is perfect for late summer but I can see it transitioning into fall really well.  I would pair it with some black booties and a cute denim jacket!  Or even with a cardi and pumps for work, either way definitely a versatile dress!  Wear now and wear later style if you will.

Trending Tuesday – #whitehot

Ok ok so I know it’s a Wednesday but I figured what ev’s Trending Wednesday doesn’t have the same ring to it.  Anyways… if the world of Alicia was the internet #whitehot would totally be trending.  White is having a major moment but my problem is I don’t have many (barely any) good white pieces. Here’s a few #whitehot looks I’m loving and searching for.  So if you have some favorite #whitehot pieces, leave a comment and share!

On The Wishlist: mark. So White Now Necklace is the easiest way to wear white (without getting it dirty, which we all know is going to happen)

On The Hunt:  White jeans!  Please can someone find me white jeans that aren’t so tight they show the cellulite but not so big they don’t fit my 5′ frame.  And they need to be stretchy and lightweight to handle the hot Nor Cal weather.  UGH.  This is my unicorn.

LWD:  I have a few white dresses but none are exactly perfect (but these are close calls here here and here).  For the summer nothing is as effortlessly cool as a chill white dress.

Nailed It:  I guess for now what I can do is wear white nail polish.  This is instant gratification on my #whitehot fix.  Good thing I just got this new Julep polish in my May Maven Box that’s a creamy white (like the color of cream).
