Spring 2019 Rainbow Trends

It’s been freezing here in L.A—I’m talking 30’s and 40’s, hats and gloves kind of cold. Then throw in the days of endless rain and the sunnier months ahead can’t come soon enough. To get into the spring spirit, I’ve been shopping for transitional pieces and eyeing the upcoming summer trends. One thing I keep noticing over and over again are a variation of stripes in pastel, neon and bold hues. This rainbow trend was brought to the forefront last spring but now even more designers like Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Valentino, Zuhair Murad, Viktor & Rolf, Matty Bovan, and Loewe have showcased it in theirRead More →

Statement leather jacket

I purchased this corduroy Opening Ceremony Varsity Jacket last year and it sat in my closet because, one it was too warm to wear in L.A., and two I was waiting to plan the perfect outfit. Yes, it was a bit pricey and I rarely splurge on “trends”; usually when I indulge it’s on things I’ll be able to wear for seasons to come. But this navy bomber jacket stood out, and I had to have it. The sleeves are made of leather, and the shell is a soft corduroy—which takes me back to Friday night football games. I love the vintage-inspired strategically placed patchesRead More →

New York style winter coat

One of the things I love about New York in the winter time is the chance to wear (and purchase) warmer clothing. I look forward to a break from the typical warm L.A. weather and an opportunity to switch up my style. Before I took off for the East Coast, I was searching for the quintessential winter coat. I went to several stores and placed multiple online orders in a variety of styles and ended up returning them all. On the day before I left, my last hope arrived—an oversized plaid double breasted wool coat from Tommy Hilfiger. I paused in front of my mirrorRead More →

NYC Street Style

When I was packing for my trip to New York City I planned out all of my outfits ahead of time rather than just throwing pieces into my suitcase. Since there would be a lot of walking involved I needed something comfortable to explore the city in. I purchased these studded Ash biker boots back in 2011 and they were my go-to shoe during the winter. It had been a couple years since I last wore them so I was excited to put them on again. Going for an edgy NYC street style look I paired them with faux leather leggings, a deconstructed denim jacketRead More →

Every year once I’m finished with my holiday shopping I create my Christmas wish list to make it easier on my friends and family.

From clothing, to jewelry, to items for my apartment. These are the top 20 gifts I’m asking for this Christmas. Doheny Blouse Sanctuary $89 This reminds me of something Blair Waldorf would wear.

Nothing thrills me more than a change in season because it means going shopping for new clothing and accessories and changing up my wardrobe based on the upcoming trends. As we slowly approach our last days of summer, I have begun compiling a list of fashion pieces I must have this season.

Trip to Puerto Vallarta

I recently wrote an article about how to plan a spur-of-the-moment trip, which was based on preparing for my trip to Puerto Vallarta. I spent 9 days in Mexico, so you as you can imagine, I did and saw a lot of amazing things. I had so many trip-of-a-lifetime experiences, from dining on a deserted island, to exploring a brightly colored beach town, to tasting amazing cuisine–every second of this trip was a memorable one. I wondered how I would be able to include everything in one blog post so I decided to write about my trip highlights along with some history of this amazingRead More →
