My latest wardrobe essential is this boatneck sailor tee c/o MiH-Jeans. I never really thought I would like such a simple classic piece (I do tend to go over the top) but this has become the first thing I wear when when it comes out of the wash. I love the thickness of the cotton knit and how crisp and fresh it makes everything look.

For pops of color I accessorized with my MeChar Brigid clutch, Marc by Marc Jacobs pear necklace and classic Oakley Frogskins. My favorite worn-in jeans c/o GOLDSIGN and extra height c/o 80%20 shoes.
Strong shoulders don’t have to mean an 80’s power suit. This Catherine Malandrino watercolor blouse I have has these raw silk flower cap sleeves that are so feminine. I paired it with my dusty rose jeans c/o Neuw Denim to keep it soft. I am such a shortie that lately I have been taking to rolling all my jeans that are not super skin tight. I’m just really into showing some ankle. To even out my proportions (and to get as matchy-matchy as possible) I put on my army green, mesh flat-forms c/o 80%20 shoes.
Want texture on top? Try this Tory Burch style. I found these dusty rose Gap Jeans. But you should totally check out Neuw Denim for all their amazing washes. As for new 80%20 flatforms, these are so cool!
It’s no secret I am obsessed with the color combination of pink and orange and all it’s slight variations. (Check out those lips!) I look at these photos and still can’t believe I am in open toe shoes. This is such a spring-time look but it’s I suppose it is fall here in LA. It is just starting to get a little chillier. I see girls rocking fur coats and heavy coats but it seems ridiculous to me. Am I supposed to wear my major fall wardrobe and pretend it feels appropriate when the sun is warm and it is a pleasant 70 degrees?
I am a NYC girl afflicted with the condition of seasonal fashion confusion. SFC. That’s the technical term for it.

Once When I Was just a wee one I watched a lot Magnum PI with my Dad. He also had a mustache and wore Hawaiian shirts. I truly believe this is the main reason I have such an affinity towards a tropical print. Coupled with the fact that my baby years were spent on Venice Beach, CA and my tween to teens were on Hollywood Beach, FL; I know my way around a palm tree and a hibiscus flower.
I am embracing my inner LA girl. It’s October and I can’t believe I am wearing light peach silk vintage maxi slip. That would never happen in New York. It would be filthy from the walk to the subway. I channeled a 60’s bohemian Laurel Canyon vibe for the LA Market.
Sequined vest c/o Allsaints.
Vintage slip from Mom’s closet. Never worn once in NYC in 16 years. Shame.
Boots c/o 80%20.
Leopard Brigid clutch c/o Me Char.
Ring from Echo of the Dreamer. (Have you ever heard of a better name?)
Glitzy iphone case c/o Cellairis by DeBari.
Want a peek inside? My dear friend SK over at @bywayofbrooklyn grilled me on all things from sharing taxis to how to be the best fashion assistant.
Ps. I am wearing an Allsaints dress and 80%20 Shoes.
I have been searching for the perfect open weave sweater for sometime now. It was kismet when @LandsEndCanvas reached out and asked me to get inspired by their summer casuals. Here you have it, the juiciest coral sweater that I paired with my crazy cat lady skirt I found on Etsy. To keep it chic I layered on the vintage lucite necklace and platform 80%20s. As usual, I am working a modern granny vibe.
