white

Oh, hey guys. It's been a minute. Been super busy the past few weeks and haven't had time to shoot any posts. Here's a quick, simple one from my coffee date with Valentina a few days ago. A little white wall throwback action. Rain brought sweater weather (again) here in LA and I'm taking full advantage and rocking turtlenecks all day everyday. But being that it is southern California...I'll probably be back in a tank top and cutoffs by New Years.

With Christmas right around the corner and quite a bit of shopping left to do, my go-to ootd has become as simple and streamlined as possible. Surprise, surprise because that sounds soooooo weird. Kidding. Well I teamed up with online boutique Seldom Seen to create an easy holiday look. I decided to pair this little Wood Wood sweater dress with the Loeffler Randall "work tote." This bah just happens to be the perfect everyday tote to haul all my usual sh*t, (camera, wallet, sunnies, makeup & other miscellaneous etc etc.) Kept it comfy in the shoe department with my current favorite suede ankle booties. Follow the rest of the SS style series with Alyssa!

hot & cold

WTF, LA? This weather is all over the place. I tried to commit to sweaters and leather but I'm sick of ending up a sweaty mess by noon. The solution? A little lacey tank under leather. You still look put together if you take off the jacket and bonus points for zero sweat-stained pits. Score. Wear with slim fitting bf jeans and menswear inspired lace ups for cool girl vibes that will literally keep you cool.

Still searching for the perfect present for that one chick who's just too damn cool for anything at the mall? I GOT YOU. Here's a list of my holiday favorites to give and receive this year. Get on it & thank me later.

prep school

This rainy, overcast weather is making me lazy and unmotivated to dress myself in anything but massive sweaters, running tights and wool socks. Forced myself to throw a little somethin somethin together, while still maintaining most of the comfort level.This pullover sweatshirt looks less home-y and more private school kid, when layered over a little collared shirt. I love these ripped knee skinnies and think they're the perfect contrast to the preppy top action. That, and I also just really really love these jeans. #realtalk 

What's your favorite way to wear a pullover, without looking like a bum?

blackout

Wow. An all black look? How weird! Kidding. Not weird at all. I'm fully embracing my inner goth chick with the beautiful overcast weather this week. This weekend I paired my new Black Orchid Denim destroyed skinnies with a comfy wool knit and sneakers. Added my new Larsson & Jennings watch for a pop of gold blaaaang. Comfy but chic. Now excuse me while I try to undo the past four days with a Pressed Juicery cleanse. #FUN

navy, stripes & leather

Nbd just 80 degrees yesterday. I know, I know. I shouldn't be complaining while the rest of the country freezes but seriously? 80 at the end of November??!  Only in LA. Got a new little swing dress from Reformation appropriate for this heat. Super comfy and it'll (hopefully) be the perfect layer over sheer black tights if it ever cools down. Obvi added my favorite leather jacket for evening breezes. Will probably wear this dress tomorrow for Thanksgiving bc it's the ultimate food baby concealer. #realtalk
