Spent last weekend with some of my favorite ladies exploring one of my favorite cities with bebe! The first day we settled into our room at the Clift Hotel and then headed out for he night. Our first stop was at The Painted Ladies to check out the iconic scenery and candy painted houses. Right after we headed to dinner where I ate my weight in oysters and the vino was a-flowin!

Day two we hit the ground running. I've been to San Francisco a million and one times but that day we went to Sausalito, a town I've never been to before! Had lunch on the water and couldn't head back into the city without checking out the Golden Gate Bridge. 

The temperatures in SF were much warmer than usual (hello heat wave), but this outfit still carried me from day to night. Just add leather jacket*

This is the outfit I wore for the final day. We had an amazing brunch set up by the lovely ladies at bebe. I am not a fan of changing multiple times a day so lucky me this look took me from eggs benedict to airport security line. 

Always have so much fun visiting San Francisco. For such a small city it manages to reveal more parts of it that I haven't seen before. Definitely will be back for more. Maybe dumplings this time. 

Thanks bebe x Foray for an amazing weekend!

Matisse Footwear: Caty Boot

I loved these boots so much that welp, needed them in another color! The Caty Boot unknowingly became my boot of the season.  I wore the black version pouncing around the Polo Fields every day of Coachella. I was worried the ankle part would being irritating AF but thankfully my ankles were spared. 

I don't veer away from my little black boots often, because frankly I'm intimidated. Much like white pants, white shoes give me pause. For me, I find wearing these boots with shorts help in not making my legs look short- the ultimate goal. 

Also plan on pairing them with blush pink and black slip dresses. And chokers. Duh. May need them in another color...just kidding...or am I?

Never Fully Dressed: Camel Duster

Ok, this coat. Let's talk about it. It's great! The end.

Just kidding. But really, to call it my go-to would be the understatement of the century. For me, living in LA doesn't necessitate heavy outerwear but it does get chilly. Cue this amazing duster from Never Fully Dressed

A piece like this can take an ordinary outfit to the next level. Long layers scream CHIC. If you ever want to add some drama to your look try a duster like this or even a mid-length vest. Added drama points when you walk and appear to be dawning a cape.

I love the entire vibe of Never Fully Dressed so definitely give them look!

Summer Basics: Moussy Denim

Discovering new denim brands to me feels like hitting the lottery. Ok that's dramatic, but maybe like when you find a twenty dollar bill in your back pocket or wallet you had no idea about. Fun!

This brand is called Moussy and it's straight out of Japan so you know it's gotta be good. I have a couple pairs and am already impatiently waiting for their fall collection to come out. I'm loving the simple ease of this outfit. There's not a whole lot going on but it just shows that if you have the right key pieces you don't need much to make it sing. If you want to amp it up, just add a leather jacket or neutral colored trench with your favorite shade of liquid matte lipstick. 

Sometimes less is really more. 

Since I'm always on the hunt for amazing denim, please comment below if you have any secrets you'd like to share!

Puerto Vallarta: Modeliste Magazine x Shot by G

I can't believe my trip to Mexico with Modeliste Magazine was already a month ago! These are one half of the photos I shot for the mag on the mean streets of Puerto Vallarta. Such a beautiful city with beyond incredible sights and friendly people. I couldn't say thank you enough to everyone and their hospitality.

Now that the fog has settled, and the dust is cleared, I can now share how absolutely chaotic April was for me! I had tons of highs and some pretty low lows. I definitely work on myself every single day to improve parts of my personality I don't particularly like. One being handling stress and disappointment. My biggest inspirations in that department are my parents. Whenever I need a reality check or comfort I usually turn to them because they've lived through it all. They provide me with a better outlook on things aka that everything will be OK. They are so tough and never let a misstep deter their life or bring them down. Sometimes I wonder how I am their child?! haha

But bottom line is that life is beautiful and I am grateful for so many things. I am looking forward to the next several months where I hope to be traveling my face off. I'm excited to see more new places and fill up more pages in my passport. 

And as Drake would say-

Bodysuit Favorites

posted on: Sunday, May 1, 2016

I'm trying to pinpoint the moment when I fell in love with bodysuits again and I think it was this past NYFW. I wore an amazing one from GUESS. They are just so darn practical under denim. Even though they can be a bit of a pain when it comes to going to the lady's room, the overall benefits outweigh the little inconveniences! 

I hate fussy clothes and am terrible at periodically checking to make sure everything is in it's right spot, so it's no surprise that I end up looking like a bit of a mess sometimes if I don't take the right precautions. Bodysuits keep everything where they need to be. High and tight!

The one I am wearing in these photos is the Xenia by Privacy Please. The perfect little piece for spring that says "Hey I'm sexy, but also sweet."

Clearly I'm obsessed so I wanted to share with you some of my favorite bodysuits at the moment. Check out my picks below and join my brigade! 

Puerto Vallarta: Modeliste Magazine

posted on: Wednesday, April 27, 2016

A couple weeks ago I ventured south of the border with my babes Racquel Natasha, Jessi Malay, and Modiste Magazine. We spent four days at the amazing Villa Premiere Boutique Hotel in Puerto Vallarta. Picturesque doesn't even begin to describe it. 

From the moment I arrived it was top notch service. I was greeted with a glass of champagne and then proceeded to pick out what type of pillow I wanted plus the fragrance for my room. To make matters even more grand I indulged in a welcome back massage...I MEAN.

Some of you may have caught my room tour on Snapchat (username: LILBLACKBOOTS!) which was filled with pure joy. Everything from the chilled bottle of champagne waiting for me to    balcony and beach front views was everything. Every night I came back to more chocolate and drinks for two. Which brings me to the hilarious point that I constantly felt like I was on a romantic getaway but unfortunately was...alone. Haha. The first night I came back to a bubble bath covered in rose petals. YOU GUYS. Where's my boyfriend when I needed him?! But don't worry, I slipped into that bath and had a romantic night watching the O.J. show. 

I think my favorite part of the trip would have to be the dinner on the beach at La Palapa. Literally the most delicious meal I've had in a while. Let's just say every plate was cleared. 

Without skipping a beat we all hopped on a plane back to California to jump straight into Coachella. Needless to say it was an intense week. Stay tuned for my Coachella recap coming real soon including details about all the outfits I wore that weekend!
