The Denim Jumpsuit I'm Bringing With Me Into Fall

Claudia Di Capua

Jumpsuit: Reformation / Belt: Gucci / Large Pendant Necklace: Maje / Heels: Stuart Weitzman / Sunglasses: Ray-Ban

The Look

I know the weather is starting to get a little more sporadic, but I wanted to get one last warm weather look in. It’s worth noting that this jumpsuit will be joining me as I saunter into fall because it looks great layered over a fitted top as well. I love a piece that I can use for multiple seasons!

I went into Reformation looking to return a pair of jeans, but inevitably ended up exchanging them for something else (this jumpsuit). I’m very happy I did, because the denim is so soft and is quite flexible. The fact that it feels that way while also looking structured and shapes is amazing. The waist really pulls me in and the vertical zipper helps to give my short torso some length!I can’t wait to wear this with a sleeveless mock neck top, black leather jacket and heeled ankle boots (I haven’t thought about this at all).

Accessories like the the Gucci belt gives this already vintage looking jumpsuit a kick back to the 70’s. I love I how it pulls the waist in and adds a pop of gold. Not to mention, It helps to bring a bit of focus to the Gold Zodiac Maje necklace I found in Barcelona along with the smaller pendant. A simple Stuart Weitzman block heeled sandal was added to keep it simple and classic. These shoes will literally never get old.

5 Pieces of Advice from the Who What Wear Panel

Claudia Di Capua

Pants: Who What WearSweater: Who What WearBoots: Steve Madden

The Look

Just to give a little context, I attended a panel hosted by Who What Wear where we heard from bloggers like Marianna Hewitt and Wendy of Wendy's Lookbook as well as entrepreneurs such as one of the founders of Bauble Bar. At the end we were able to pull a few pieces from the gifting suite, which is how this look came to be! Although, snagging these items was a miracle because once they let us select pieces, it was like race horses out of the gates!

I chose these pieces because I feel that they would work perfectly together as well as on there own. While this sweater is normally fitted, I went up in size to get the looser fit. I thought to myself "pick items that you'll have a use for (but also hurry up or everything will be gone haha)." The rich striped glitter detail makes this sweater perfect for the holiday season! the gold stands out so well and is overall very festive. 

I love how these pants combine old and new. They incorporate that 80's look while also keeping the cut modern. The belt helps to cinch in the waist and the length looks great rolled up as well. I paired them with a pair of super fitted lace up ankle boots. Boots that hug the ankle closely have always been my preference and look great underneath a wider trouser leg. I linked all of these items above, which are sold at Target. Get them in time for your holiday parties - I know I'll be wearing these items to a few events!

5 Pieces of Advice from the Event

We heard from some amazing speakers including Marianna Hewitt, Wendy Nguyen (Wendy's Lookbook) and Daniella Yacobovsky of Bauble Bar with moderation by Rachel Zeilic! They all offered up some awesome advice, so I figured I'd share a few notes that stood out to me:

1. From Marianna on tips- If you're not following her second account Blog With Me, you need to! She shares everyday tips about how to grow as a blogger and provides a different approach to a lot of the dilemmas we face as bloggers. Check it out here!

2. From Wendy on Instagram Algorithm - With our beloved Instagram acting all crazy with algorithm changes, I made it a point to ask Wendy how she has been dealing with these changes. She went on to explain that this is impacting everyone big and small, so it's important to stay current with what type of content the algorithm favors. Instagram is starting to favor video and Instagram stories, so rather than posting something to Snapchat, maybe add that video to you Insta story next time!

3. From Daniella on working with brands - Hearing from Daniella was super helpful seeing as she is on the opposite side of the table as bloggers. She is the brand looking to work with

influencer. One piece of advice that really resonated was work with brands that you already love and wear. Bauble Bar only works with influencers that already wear the product allowing for natural content creation. If you are having trouble finding collaborations, invest in pieces from brands you love and make sure to tag them in all of your content. Maybe even reach out with examples of content featuring their items!

4. From Marianna and Wendy on equipment - Be smart about how you spend your money on new equipment! Don't get me (or them) wrong, it's SO important to reinvest in yourself, but make sure you are doing it in a cost efficient way. Both Marianna and Wendy had plenty of stories about how many cameras and lenses they went through as they were coming up, but they both concluded that it is way smarter to rent equipment first, see what works for you and then make purchases based on that. Also, it is 20% about the camera/equipment and 80% about knowing how to change the settings in the camera and editing skills! 

5. From Daniella, Marianna and Wendy on getting paid - When you're working your way up the blogging ladder, it's difficult to know when to ask for payment for your content creation. All three touched on how it's important to narrow down what brands you truly love and want to work for. Even if you aren't getting paid, but yoou get to work with a brand you love, it may be worth it to help build out your portfolio. You want to build relationships with these brands so you can do more than one MEANINGFUL campaign. Make sure you aren't money driven starting off and place value on the relationships over the payment.

Jacquard Blazer For Miami Swim Week

Claudia Di Capua

Top: LF (similar here) / Blazer: Free PeopleShorts: Lord & TaylorHeels: Stuart Weitzman / Sunglasses: Ray-BanBody Chain: Brandy Melville (similar here and here)

The Look

Miami - specifically South Beach - calls for bold colors to match the art deco buildings and overall vibe of the area. The energy is high, so naturally, my look had to keep up! I can’t begin to tell you how happy I was to accidentally come across a blazer like this. I’ve always been into the boyfriend blazer fit, but find it difficult to track down a quality fit, color or print. My interpretation of the this pinkversion is that inspiration was drawn from Asian silhouettes such as the kimono in terms of print and fit. The blazer hangs so perfectly and the movement doesn’t get better! Well done Free People. 

I love the idea of mixing smaller fitted pieces with oversized flowy pieces like this blazer, which is why I went with a white LF crop top and linen shorts that I found at Lord & Taylor. The large criss cross detailon the top does wonders for the midsection. This upside down V-shaped illusion that it gives right above the belly button is super slimming! I find this to be especially true when wearing it with a high waisted bottom. My only recommendation when wearing shorts with a large blazer like this is make sure the shorts meet the length of the blazer, or at least be somewhere close to it. Keeps the look classy!

Taking full advantage of me being tanner than normal this summer and sporting a lot more gold jewelry than usual. I Have been playing around with body jewelry and layering much more as of late. I didn’t want to spend a huge amount of money I was experimenting with, so I went for a cheap body chain from Brandy Melville. Now that I know, I’m obsessed, I may invest in a higher quality one. I truly think that small details like a gold body chain hanging out of the bottom of a crop top like this can enhance an outfit. It definitely added that Miami vibe and an ounce of glam to the look!

Finally, sandals are the map of summer shoes, especially this Stuart Weitzman style. It was the perfect shoe to pull the look together will helping to give all the glory to my blazer! they were the perfect wing woman support for this look. Let e know your thoughts in the comments below!
