Been pretending it's fall in LA and miiiight be trying to layer already. I should name this post "when your boyfriend is your style 'spo." He's been rocking docs recently so I decided I was going to try a pair as well. Although the chunkiness takes some getting used to, they are seriously the comfiest boots ever. Yes they look hella punk when paired with leather and a band tee BUT I'm most stoked to wear them with skirts and dresses. I also recently styled them in a teen vogue-esque party editorial to tomboy up a ballet pink pleated skirt and was super stoked on how it added instant cool to an otherwise girly look. I'm gonna go ahead and say these boots are a fall must have.

I'm happy to be working with Madison as their blogger for August! I curated my picks from the stores new arrivals into my own little mini shop. Think cool girl staples: leather, striped tees, cool black dresses, ankle boots and chain cross body bags. An edgy take on minimalism that's right up my alley. Lots of black and white with hardware detailing. I'm super happy with how the project turned out! Shop my pop up on the site and/or check out my window display (that I designed with the Madison team) and shop IRL at their 3rd street location. Click through to see some of my favorite pieces!
AG asked my sister Adria and I to give our spin on their new indigo capsule collection. Think: minimal meets indigo magic. The entire line is perfect for mixing and matching, easily dressed up or down and most importantly...comfy af. I'm super into all things denim and indigo and jumped at the chance to shoot something fun with my sis. I chose to shoot the looks against a rad tie dye backdrop I found and styled looks based on how we'd wear the pieces IRL. I'm super stoked on how they turned out. Click through to see more & shop the collection. Let me know what you think!!

Oh hey guys. It's been a while. Finally shot something though and it's hella summery. Spent the past holiday weekend in Laguna Niguel and headed down to the beach one evening to catch the sunset and take some photos. Although I'm all for itty bitty skimpy bikinis, sometimes it's nice to mix it up and go for a little more coverage. Enter: the cutest high waisted bikini bottom and matching top by giejo. Ugh. It's perfect. I love high rise jeans but always feel like the bikini versions are too girly and frilly. This one is the sporty - cool girl version and the top can double as a cute bralette under summery tops. 10/10 in my book, what do you guys think?

Hacked off hems (DIY'd) and little chain bags: these are few of my favorite things. For the longest time I hated little cross body bags. I couldn't see a point in carrying a bag that couldn't fit my camera and an outfit change. Over the past year or so I found a new appreciation for little leather zip ups (I carry my saint laurent mini duffle almost daily.) They're the best for evening activities because let's be real: no one at the bar likes getting bumped by someones massive tote. Also on a side note: 98% of my denim now has a raw hem. The easiest DIY ever - literally cut the bottom hem off at the desired point (few inches up for a cute crop) and through them in the wash. Viola! Your old skinnies has some new tattered flare.

Summer weather is inevitable. Although I'm not switching to little tank dresses and short short just yet, I am taking into account the warmer months ahead while shopping. I bought this little button up tee blouse from All Saints last summer and have to admit that it's one of the most worn tops in my closet since then. The roomier fit let's you keep things breezy May through September with minimal sweat stains. I also love that it can easily be dressed down for daytime or zooshed up for dinner.

While I skipped the whole wide-leg flare denim trend over the past year...I thought I'd give the boot cut (mini flare) a go and was pleasantly surprised. I'll never give up my skinny jeans but these are a fun alternative and look rad paired with a heel. I cut the hem and washed them because I love the look of well worn denim and felt a finished hemline with this style looks a little too "cutesy." It needed a little edge to be more rock & roll and less Kate Middleton. Ya feel? Paired them with my favorite striped tee and this rad blue leather biker for a pop of unexpected color. What do you think? Would you rock cropped bootcut jeans??
