Fast-Forward Into Fall

Living in Los Angeles has been a dream of mine since I was a young girl, so actually building a life here can feel a little surreal at times. But every autumn, I find myself wishing I was back “home” in Northern California to revel in the beauty of the vineyard harvest and the substantial…

Easy Street Style

Top, Forever 21 (similar here); Skirt, Zara (on sale here and similar here); Shoes, Adidas Cloudfoam Advantage Sneaker; Jacket, Ashley; Sunglasses, Nordstrom BP; Bag, (similar here) I grew up in sneakers but never really considered them a stylish addition to an ensemble.

Posh Approved

Dress, Victoria Beckham for Target. Shoes, Charlotte Russe. Bag, Kate Spade (similar here). When I first heard Victoria Beckham designed a collection for Target, I nearly fainted. Although Baby Spice was my favorite of the Spice Girls, Posh (a.k.a. Victoria Beckham) was a close second. Beckham’s affordable line of fun women’s clothing at Target is a…

Winter Brights

Most of us have those colors in our wardrobe that we turn to endlessly. For me, it’s neutrals like navy, white, and the occasional black. Yet while those classic color staples serve a wardrobe well, they can get a little ho-hum when January rolls around. That’s why I love incorporating brights into my everyday wardrobe. Just…

An Italian Affair

A birthday dinner should always include three things: Great food, a memorable glass of wine, and the company of friends and family Blouse, Zara; Pants, Old Navy (here); Shoes, Report (here); Bag, Vintage. I celebrated my 22nd birthday this past week and was treated to a delightful dinner at director Francis Ford Coppola’s winery in Geyserville. Unlike…

Falling for Florals

Autumnal tones at my family’s ranch Blouse, Forever 21 (here); Jeans, Paige Denim; Hat, BDG Urban Outfitters (similar styles here, here and here) I love florals year-round and this blouse is moody enough to wear well into November.

City Romance

It should come as no surprise that the Griffith Observatory has been voted one of the ten most romantic places in Los Angeles. There’s something so classically romantic about ending a date up on the southern slope of Mount Hollywood. Perhaps its the breathtaking views both day and night, or that it brings to mind Rebel Without A Cause starring…

Kicking off Fall in Peep-Toes

In the past two weeks, it’s drizzled twice in L.A. While this excites the Northern California-raised me, the rain felt sticky and humid like a tropical vacation. I’m slowly implementing fall attire into my wardrobe in the hopes that the nights will get significantly chillier; however, it may be a while before the L.A. weather catches on.…
