Stone Row stylin

Leather, vintage inspired tees, black and white...sounds right up my alley, right?? I was stoked when Volcom, in partnership with Refinery 29, asked me to style out a look from their new Ston
e Row collection. I paired the collections little shorts with the "Broke En" tee (aka the best faux-vintage tee ever) and layered the super rad leather jacket on top to add a little edge. Kept the rest simple with high top sneakers, no jewelry and bedhead. The perfect anti-summer, summer outfit. Shop the collection here and tell me what your favorite pieces are!

#rimaroma part due

Oh hey, remember when I went to Rome last month? Here's another outfit post from my trip. We just happened to visit during a (relatively) cooler week and missed the super hot temps. Low to mid 80's all week meant I could get away with a denim jacket during the day. I loved this little dress from Aritzia as it fit loose throughout the body, keeping me cool. Both literally and figuratively. Paired with my sparkly Isabel Marant sneakers for major euro-tourist vibes. Can't wait to go back!

sunny with a side of leather

I'm all about day to night dressing. And by "day to night," I mean wearing the exact same outfit and throwing on a leather jacket. Who has time to go home and change?? LA summers are all about super hot days and (relatively) chilly evenings. The solution? Wear a light-weight tank during the day and keep a leather jacket in your trunk for dinner/drinks/night adventures. You'll stay just warm enough and look hella cool after the sun goes down.

denim kind of fourth

Although the fourth of July has never really been a holiday I get into, I definitely had a great weekend. Fireworks, summer nights & BBQ? You can't go wrong. I kept it simple and opted to stick to my favorite, denim, instead of embracing the red & whites. Side note. How did I miss the Madewell denim train?? These are my new favorite jeans. That's seriously saying something considering the amount of skinnies I currently have folded in my closet (32!?!) Also picked up these little heeled sandals while I was in the store and have been wearing them everyday since. Super comfy to wear all day while adding the right amount of "chic-ness" to an otherwise casual outfit.

so it's summer

Although I think I've expressed my distaste for summer dressing let me repeat myself. I actually hate dressing for summer. I feel most comfortable in skinny jeans, sweaters and ankle boots. Black on black on black is kind of my style mantra. Although I'll usually take a little sweat action if it means I can wear my favorite pieces, this becomes a bit of an issue when it feels like mid 90's in the sun and jeans just aren't an option. I know these little denim skirts are v trendy right now but I couldn't help myself. Its super cute and was only fifty bucks. I figured, if I can't wear skinny jeans, at least I can sneak denim into my summer wardrobe in the form of a mini skirt that just happens to be the perfect rise to pair with cropped tops.

#rimaroma

As you've seen from my instagram posts, I'm in Italy this week! Thankfully the mild weather this trip has allowed me to pretty much stick to my usual year-round basics; denim & silk. Although I said I'd never do it, I bought a pair of all black leather Birkenstocks while stopping in Toronto for a few nights late last week. I've got to say, they're kind of the comfiest shoes ever and I've worn them almost everyday here. This afternoon we wandered around and almost got caught in the late afternoon down pour. I'll be sad when we leave Saturday but know that I'll visit again. Arrivederci!

denim summer

I need to start wearing more dresses. They're an easy, no-fuss, one and done. This little denim number by Sam & Lavi, via my new friends at zebraclub.com, is the perfect summer staple. Denim & a looser, bf fit makes it a great day to night option that looks just as cool with sneakers as it does with heeled ankle booties. Maybe I'll actually enjoy dressing for summer this year....maybe

Forever Faded in hemp denim

When my friend Rachel told me that the hemp denim company she's been working with released a limited run denim jacket I jumped at the chance to check it out. Hemp/organic cotton blend, this jacket is the perfect wash and mid-weight denim. Perfect for summer evenings in LA thrown over a little tank and skinnies. You already know I'm already a huge denim chick but make it sustainable too?? Sold.

denim days

I love a good Canadian tuxedo. Maybe because I am from Toronto but most likely because it's easy and looks hella cool. Rails is one of my favorite button down brands because every piece is super soft, especially this denim shirt. Although I'd normally pair this top with black skinnies (booooring, I know) I decided to get with the summer season and wear my trusty levis cutoffs. I found this vintage pair a while back in a pile of random sh*t at a yard sale. They fit a little big but I'm into it as it feels much more "cool-girl" than the levis booty shorts I'm starting to see again. Sun's out doesn't always have to mean buns out....
