Summer Fits with Abercrombie

posted on: Friday, June 16, 2017

 


When you think of Southern California living, images of beach, palm trees, and sun kissed skin probably float through your head. And, I don't blame you! Those are a few of the many reasons I have loved living and growing up in this corner of the world. One brand that has been tried and true to the endless summer vibe is Abercrombie and Fitch

Made in collaboration with Abercrombie, I want to talk about the summer pieces you'll be coveting this season.

Since I was a high schooler coveting every piece and begging my mother to buy me a logo tee, Abercrombie has managed to develop and change with the times while always remaining true to it's core aesthetic. 

I personally have been so impressed with Abercrombie's new arrivals as of late. Think elevated basics with flattering silhouettes. I am especially drawn to their dress selections. You may have caught me donning one in downtown LA recently on my Instagram

In addition to their dresses, I am also gushing over their tees and rompers. I love playing with the minimal look and adding my own spin. I plan to wear these pieces and adding statement earrings and belts to make it Little Black Boots approved. 

Below I've linked my current favorites from their collection (including my dream pair of swim bottoms that are on sale!!)

Would love to hear about what you think of Abercrombie's latest offerings in the comments below!



Sanuk Yoga Sling Sandals

posted on: Wednesday, May 24, 2017


I'll admit it...my shoe wall runneth over. But even with a very healthy selection I do see a pattern when it comes to what I actually don on my feet and what ends up collecting dust. Comfort and style go hand-in-hand for me. Why sacrifice one when you can have them both?

I've teamed up with Sanuk to introduce you to what has and will be my go-to sandal for this spring/summer season- the Sanuk Yoga Sling Sandal.  

YOU GUYS- I cannot stress how comfortable they are. The footbeds are made out of literal yoga mats. You feel like you are walking on clouds. Then you have the double stretch fabric that adds interest and an edge. 

I styled my Yoga Sling Sandals with my LA girl uniform- denim, a white tee, and leather jacket. The sandals would also look great with:

+ white relaxed fit jeans, white tee, straw bag
+ black denim shorts, gingham blouse, round sunnies
+ high waist floral skirt, knit crop top, straw hat

I love that Sanuk created a sandal that can be interpreted for so many lifestyles, terrains, and situations. From lunch meeting to shoots- this California girl was happy. Next I think a trip to the beach is necessary. 

Would love to hear your thoughts below on how you stay stylish and comfortable this season! 

Shoes: Sanuk
Tee: Betches
Skirt: Zara
Jacket: Rudsak
Bag: Tony Bianco


Sephora Fragrance Find: Nest Black Tulip

posted on: Friday, May 19, 2017


Every season I like to switch things up. Whether that's with my hair (hello short cut I love you), my wardrobe, or in this case- my scent!

One thing that remains the same is the fact that Sephora will always be my go-to for finding new fragrances. Ok I know what you're thinking...why? Finding a new scent can be tough so the trick is to shop somewhere that has the most variety but also doesn't leave you feeling overwhelmed. I love that Sephora carries all the iconic, big names we are familiar with but also houses a selection of cool, niche fragrances that have interesting stories behind them. You can weigh in on all your options and make the best decision before buying. I never suffer from fomo there. 

A fragrance that has been on my radar and I am so happy to finally  try is NEST Black Tulip. Think warm florals, black amber plums, and Japanese violet. Do I have your attention yet? So amazing!

What draws me to it is the perfect mix of sophistication, fun, and flirtiness. The fragrance is rich but not overwhelming which is major when choosing a scent for me. It's a seductive, warm, peppery fragrance so I could see myself wearing this during the evenings for a night out. I love having a warm floral as an option! 

NEST Black Tulip will definitely be tucked away in my purse or in my carry-on during trips all summer long. I love discovering new scents and honestly when you know...you know. This one is a keeper. 

I've linked 4 more lust-worthy picks below. Would love to hear about any fragrances you've fallen head over heels for in the comment section!

Current Favorite Dresses via Revolve

posted on: Sunday, April 30, 2017


Sunsets, quiet empty roads, and one of my all-time favorite dresses. I love this time of the year and feeling all kinds of "gone with the wind fabulous."

Speaking of feeling fabulous- do you ever try on a dress and instantly wish you had an impending social gathering of any type to wear it to? That's basically how I felt when I tried on this House of Harlow dress. So effortless, chic, and summer ready. I may wear it to my friend's baby shower but the cleavage square footage is questionable. Stay tuned haha. 

With all that said, I've listed my favorite dresses below that will make even the most anti-social member of the anti-social social club want to mix and mingle. Cause hunny, you're going to look SMOKING. 

P.S. Also included links to the Cult Gaia bag that I SWEAR looks good with every outfit, it's weird but in a totally amazing and I can't get enough of it way. 

I'm just going to say it...bag of the summer!
