Was going to title this post "goth weekend" but then realized that's applicable basically every single weekend. Wore my favorite black pieces and found a semi-grungey alley with Adria. Hey, at least my sunglasses are blue. Not a total goth/emo child.

live in levis

Classic with a twist. Like coca cola in a glass bottle with a turquoise bendy straw. Did I lose you? Levis. A classic denim company with reinvented styles. I was super excited when asked to be apart of the Lookbook x Levis #liveinlevis collab. After heading to the Levis store in Santa Monica and trying on lots of styles, I decided on these high-rise, grey skinnies. I styled the jeans with a cutoff sweatshirt and laced ankle boots for an unintentionally (wink wink) monochromatic look. Check out the post on Lookbook here. This is how I #liveinlevis

romp around

Literally squeezing every last playsuit look in before sweater-leather season hits. I may have actually come around to summer dressing this year, even if it was mostly *surprise* black. I underestimated how nice wearing something simple and skimpy, like this romper, would be. Added some (poser) tough girl vibes with my bad a** YSL boots and cinched the waist with a studded belt. Wait. August is almost over? Please hold on while I fake cry because it's almost fall. *million emoji heart eyes*

my last goodbye / Adria for Cake Mag

My little sister, Adria, is a mega babe. Obvi. A few weeks ago I dressed her up in pieces by some of my favorite Aussie labels, told her to shake it out and snapped away. See the story on Cake-Mag, and out takes on my photography & styling blog

shades of cool

Gimmie a white walled studio, a rack full of Jaggar pieces and some late afternoon light and I'm like a kid in a candy store. Played around in the studio with photographer Valentina, aka Tuna Boon, last week and finally had time to edit them. Of course the looks were centered around my daily uniform of denim, black and blue. Simple and authentically me.

weekend vibes

Clearly I've been super into overalls of all varieties. My current go-to is this little pinafore dress by Res Denim. It's the perfect weekend staple and looks equally cool over a tee, tank, bikini or baggy sweater. Although tempted to wear my birks, I paired the look with leather high tops to avoid farm girl vibes. Happy Saturday!

pew pew

Then...THESE boots happened. Oh, it's summer you say? Don't care. Excuse me while I retire my entire shoe collection. Game. Over.

back to school

American Eagle asked me to style their overalls in a cool back to school look. Wearing head to toe AE, I paired the denim with a preppy sweater, beanie and some birks. Check it out on the American Eagle blog here

omg, like, sooo LA

Woah. No sneakers? Clearly a monumental moment post. Also I'm wearing a dress... and a hat. Holy sh*t guys, I've gone all LA-chick for this one. Wearing my fav little swing tee dress and amazing hat by The Fifth Label for an easy, breezy summer goth look. Don't get too excited though, more converse rockin' posts coming up.

shades of cool

August. When it's too hot outside for anything but barely there camis but then you're left freezing while waiting for your venti iced (dirty) chai tea latte. I've gotten into the habit of always having a jacket option with me after one too many brunch adventures turned into freeze-your-a**-off, late night outings. Here I paired an amazing Finders Keepers cami with white baggy shorts. Super easy, looks hella cool girl and might actually keep you from breaking a sweat. Threw on my trusty denim jacket as a layering option and comfy new balance sneakers to keep it casual. This is LA after all.
