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??

In December I moved to Silverlake after being a westside chick for the past four years. Moving to a new neighborhood means finding all new go-to spots. Lucking due to having friends on the Eastside to show me around (and an extremely walkable new hood) I've been able to find amazing spots for coffee, food, desserts, flowers and shopping. AG asked me to show how I'd style two different looks in two of my favorite go-to spots in my neighborhood. I live in denim so this was a no brainer. Click through to see my favorite spots and the looks I came up with.

Comfort and style is at the core of my personal dressing. Sneakers, along with the rise of "athleisure" dressing, have become a fundamental part of everyday style. When adidas reached out about putting my spin on styling the NMD shoe, I was all in. Although typically I like to dress sneakers up, I wanted to keep things authentic and give you a glimpse into my real off duty dressing. On days when I work from home (no castings/meetings/etc.) I love a good hoodie/sneaker combo. The NMD sneaker is super light and breathable which makes them the perfect pair heading into warmer weather. Since my schedule is different everyday, and errands inevitably come up last minute, I get dressed in the morning (even on "off" days) keeping in mind I might have to head across town for a coffee meeting or post office run. Silky luxe joggers, a comfy hoodie and color blocked sneakers look cool girl without even trying. How would you wear the NMD sneaker?

Sometimes it's just one of those days when you wear your tee backwards and a shirt dress as a jacket. There are no rules, so why the hell not?! Like the rest of the fashion world, blush is definitely having a moment and I'm all about it. But I don't fuck with just any shade of beige-y pink. Grandma nude nails have been my go-to for a minute. Not too nude, not too white, not too barbie pink. Blush. This tee from my favorite new brand Lacausa, is the ever-elusive shade of blush I've been searching for. It's perfect and can be worn backwards with a low back (like in these pics) or with a deep scoop front layered over a lacey cami or cute bralette. Even though it's warming up in LA, once the sun dips down you need a little somethin somethin to cover up. I opted for wearing this super soft lacausa shirtdress, open as a jacket. Paired with the coolest printed ankle booties for a little pop of edge and to lessen the norm core vibes. Hashtag spring ready
