Sweatpants that look like jeans? Just wrong....EXCEPT (yes, there's an execption) when Rag & Bone do denim sweatpants. I know what you're thinking, "umm has this chick completely lost it? Sweatpants? Really?!" Trust me on this one. Even Aimee Song is about that denim-sweats-life. Super extra bonus points: they look just as fab with a pair of ankle booties for brunch as they did in bed the a few hours before. Yes, yes and more yes.

Oh. My favorite velvet dress from Reformation, again?? Yes, yes and more yes. Got a chance to run around and shoot with cool kid, Isaac Zoller, before New Years and just got pics back.  Boom! I love shooting with film, especially in perfect pre-sunset California light.

Long weekends call for slouchy sweaters, messy hair and lots of sleep. This past holiday weekend I LIVED in my knit paneled hoodie by Bella Luxx. It's currently the most loved item in my closet. The sleeves, hood and center panel are made of super soft knit jersey which makes it purrrrfect for lounging around and cat naps. PS it just so happens to be on sale right meow.....nudge nudge, wink wink.

Ummmm so am I the only one who just discovered Urban Outfitters' insane beauty/body offerings?! Tons of small unique brands and products mixed in with beauty big dogs like stila, duwop & elf. Random bath ish you didn't even know you needed (eye coal & pretty boy swag soap) AND most products are under thirty bucks?! What, what?! Yaaaasssss. Wish I had seen this when I was scrambling for xmas gifts last month. Buh bye, Sephora! Go check it right meow. You're welcome.

Was able to shoot a little collab with super cool LA photographer babe, Kayla Varley, over the holidays. Styled by me and shot behind Kayla's Hollywood apartment. 30 minutes, some hair whips, a quick alley change and this is what we got.

It's already mid January which means sweater weather is quickly coming to a close. *sobs hysterically* Soaking up the last bits of deliciously chilly, overcast weather  I wore my go-to Res Denim skinnies and brand new pullover raglan by Bella Luxx. Super soft and comfy, it's also light enough for the breezy spring and summer nights to come. Kept it super casual in a my trusty white converse and air-dried hair. Happy Monday!

Completely and totally head over heels for these booties. I normally hate flowers, both IRL and as a pattern, but for some reason the subdued hues and ankle bootie form of Miista's "Ivy" just does it for me. They'd be perfect with a pair of ripped skinnies, an oversized white tee and a pair of classic wayfarers. B-day wish list numero uno.

Weirdly warm weather calls for comfy layers, ripped skinnies and ankle booties. Since it feels like spring time, I layered this pretty embroidered cami from American Eagle underneath my new favorite Sol Angeles pullover. I love the delicately ruffled hem peeking out under the casual sweater. Been super into ripped denim (been LIVING in that All Saints pair) so a lighter washed pair are just the thing for mixing up my typically goth-like styling. Finished off with the perfect new pair of brown ankle booties by Dolce Vita I picked up in Miami. If only my spring semester classes were as easy as dressing for this weather....

I do not want to start the Spring semester on Monday. I repeat. DO. NOT. So instead of focusing on the ridiculous amount of stress and tears sure to come, here are some pics from my adventures over the past week in LA. Lots of coffee, not a lot of sleep, crazy beautiful sunsets, a sweet new lil haircut, brunch on brunch on brunch, photo shoots and variations on the same outfit five days in a row. Not mad at my first week of 2014.

outfit posts from the week coming soon
