Another day of sun

Los Angeles, CA

After spending the last few days relaxing with my fam back in New Hampshire, it's back to LA (and back to work) today. It's always a bit tough to make a quick transition between the two coasts, but it's not all bad. Back in California the sun is out and I'm dreaming of my next getaway in this look. Between the rich red hue and puffy sleeves, this off-the-shoulder top is a step above the rest. They look best with high-waisted bottoms and my new white cropped leg jeans from AG Jeans are the perfect pair. I love the edgy step hems. These are the not-so-basic whites you need for summer. Ok now where can I escape to next?

The All-Season Staple

Beverly Hills, CA

There are very few pieces that you can wear in ANY season but when I find them, I tend to load my closet with them. While I may be a California girl, I spend quite a bit of time traveling back east throughout the year and I can still appreciate the importance of a cross-seasonal staple. So what are they? 

A great blazer that can take you from the office to the after-party.

Pleated trouser pants- they look great with a tucked in tank and also a cozy knit sweater.

A chic crossbody is a year-round accessory YES.

The chambray shirt is great with white shorts and skinnies but it is also a go-to layering piece during colder months. 

The LBD- must I really explain? Dates, dinner-parties, work, play- we need it for everything and one that really flatters.

The suede skirt is great on its own when it's warm, it takes on more of a mod vibe with tights and a leather jacket during colder months.  

When it comes to staple pieces, I say it's important to splurge a bit. That is why this gorgeous suede skirt from AG Jeans is a must-have. An investment you'll wear season, after season, it takes on a femme look here with a frilly tank and ruffled mules but can easily go edgy or classic when paired with different tops and accessories. I simply love it. Check out more of my cross-seasonal musts below!

BEND THE RULES

Los Angeles, CA

Some rules are meant to be broken, especially when it comes to style. That being said, when it's a matter of wearing white, I have always been a fan of donning it before Memorial Day. After all, why should it be a faux pas to rock it on May 29th yet totally acceptable on June 1st? Pure madness!

So when I received this crisp pair from AG Jeans the other day, I had to find a reason to wear them immediately. Besides being insanely comfy (like all of their styles) this pair takes your ripped skinnies to a whole new level with edgy step hems and an ultra high-waist. I can already see myself wearing these everywhere over the coming season and today, I paired them with a high-low top from SHEIN. As you guys know, I've always been a sucker for stripes but I love how this tank puts a unique spin (with a longer silhouette) on an age-old print.  The resulting look is fresh, playful and great for a busy spring day.

So what do you guys think? Is white before Memorial Day ok in your book?
