Sometimes...a body con dress happens. Although I'm pretty sure this is a Fire on the Head first, my love for pairing oversized tops with a skinny bottom is nothing new. I've never been into body con dresses (surprise, surprise) but this simple ribbed tank one is kinda perfect. Not too short and not too tight. Although I don't normally wear a bra anyway, this dress keeps everything supported. Including the booty. Threw this super cool (and cozy as f*ck) knit on top to ease into the idea of wearing something tight. Who would've thought...body con on this blog?!? I'm ok with it.

I'm a denim girl, through and through. Be it in the form of a jacket, shirt, pant, baseball hat(it exists and I own it) or bralette; I'll take it all. When AG jeans asked me to style my favorite pieces from Alexa Chung's latest collection I was like oh you mean my style/hair/life inspo? That Alexa Chung? Plus denim? Hell yes. I choose to pair these cool, cropped straight leg jeans with a jacket in the same shade. Broke up the denim-onepiece look with this cool hunter green knit tee and tied it at the waist to show a little skin. Sexin up a canadian tux and what have you. Am I Alexa Chung now or what

I had the pleasure of working with Who What Wear and fellow blogger chickies, Gracie & Rachel last month on a project in partnership with OG denim giant, Levi's®. We each had a chance to show our different personal style while showing our unique take on three different pairs of jeans. Click through to see my looks and check out the whole story here and read some of my denim styling tips.

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!

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!

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.

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.

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.

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!
