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).

The yellow one-piece

You guys, I found the CUTEST little one-piece swimsuit, and it's only $15.99!! I've been searching for the perfect one-piece - most I've found are too high in the front or the back, or cut too low around the hips, or show through too much. But not this one.

Comfort + Style with Clarks at Macys

Ok babes, let's get real: I've never owned a pair of pumps. Why? I always just figured that if I was going to wear heels and be uncomfortable, I'd go BIG. And if I wanted to be comfortable, I'd go flat.

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.

The LTK wall in SF

Remember when the LIKEtoKNOW.it wall was in SF? No? That’s because it way back in late August (and it’s already gone). Went and loved it, but failed to post about it… until now!

Winter florals: My fave trend this season

Ya'll already know I love floral prints, and they were so in for Fall. So I figured... why not keep it going into winter?

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.

And the rose goes to... this jumpsuit

I was instantly drawn to this jumpsuit. I mean, love-at-first-sight style. Like, it would've gotten the first impression rose if it was a contestant on the Bachelorette.

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.
