My current fave trend: Paperbag pants
This trend has been around for a few months now, but I hope it never goes away! Paperbag pants (and shorts) are seriously the comfiest and easiest to wear. No more belly donuts over low-cut jeans, or camel-toes of high-waists. Now women everywhere can enjoy a flattering high-cut, cinched waist with the looseness of pjs. Aahhhh... what dreams are made of.
The perfect summer OTS shirt dress
I'm officially obsessed with this Forever21 off-the-shoulder striped shirt dress - I've literally worn it all weekend. The great thing is that although it's a summer dress, it can easily be worn with a cute leather or jean jacket for cooler weather (as it's been around 60 degrees here in San Francisco).
Summer styles and sustainable fashion with Belvele
I'm sad to say that the concept of sustainable and ethical fashion is pretty new to me, but I jumped onboard as soon as I found out about it. We have to learn to be more intelligent consumers in all areas of our lives, and an easy way to start is fashion.
NYFW: Fashion with the Stylist LA
Choosing and finding outfits for NYFW can be stressful, so I was super excited to collaborate with the Stylist LA on some of my outfits! If you haven't heard of TSLA, they're an awesome outfit rental spot with locations in Los Angeles and San Francisco.
NYFW: Pink #Bossbabe Brunch
One of the simplest outfits I wore at NYFW was for a pink-themed #bossbabe brunch at While We Were Young. The night before, I went to a Sam Edelman event where they custom embroidered my jeans - I chose a cute, feminine rose patch and #bossbabe in pink handwriting.
Museum of Ice Cream, SF
Ya'll must know by now how much I love interactive art, so of course as soon as I heard that the Museum of Ice Cream was coming to SF, I knew I had to go there (duh!). MOIC LA didn't disappoint, and I had a feeling SF would be even better. And ... I was right! Here's a little peek into the experience.
The shirt dress and me
So yes, I know, the boyfriend-shirt-as-a-dress look is kind of a love-it or hate-it trend, and I wasn't sure which way I was swaying until I met this one. The Layla Boyfriend Shirt from Two Feathers is extremely comfortable, and the high-low cut ensures that, while sexy, you aren't accidentally showing off your bum.
My fave Fall OTS top
Life is a whirlwind lately, but in a good way. I started my own business in January and, I don't want to jinx it, but it's finally taking off. Owning your own business means sleepless nights, nonstop work, and constant stress because there's no one but you to do the work to make the business succeed.
Don't be afraid to fail (+ my fave summer OTS top)
The cool thing is, if I've learned anything in life, it's that there's never a reason to give up on your goals. Even if you fail at completing your goals for months, or years, or even decades, you can pick up at any time and JUST. DO. IT. Just do it. It's that easy (Nike got it right). It doesn't have to be perfect. It doesn't have to be anything other than what you can put out there. But just do it. Because what's worse than failing? Never even trying.
A romper for summer? Yes you can!
I've been a fan of rompers for a while, but I never thought I could pull of the trend - most rompers I tried on were too tight and too saggy in all the wrong places (saggy diaper butt anyone?). But then, I found it: the right-fit romper. It was definitely a hallelujah moment.
Why every woman needs a jumpsuit in her life
Jumpsuits are magical. A cute jumpsuit is literally the only piece of clothing you have to put on before walking out the door (though don't forget shoes!). You can accessorize a jumpsuit if you want, but you don't have to, and you'll still look put-together.
Allison in La La Land
I had the most amazing trip to LA a few weeks ago, and had the opportunity to shoot with some new bloggers, as well as one that I shot with previously in Palm Springs - Allison of www.butwhatshouldiwear.com. We had a ton of fun romping around Melrose Ave, and actually ended up finding a lot of the Palm Springs vibes in Los Angeles (not surprising, since we both love succulents).
