Beverly Hills, CA


I’ve had a love affair with ruffles for as many seasons as I can remember. I should probably just credit my Mum for dressing me in those ruffle-bum bloomers in my younger years, but this season, my favorite frill seems to be on steroids! Every store is putting out their version of fall ruffles and I AM LOVING IT. From enlarged sleeves and hems to dresses with added drama, right now more is certainly more! And while we can all agree these bold details look glorious on the runway, it is not as easy to pull off that look in the office.

That’s why I’m taking a subtler approach today with a ruffled jumpsuit. Featuring an asymmetrical neckline and sweet button details, I think this black and white number is perfect for anyone who is wanting to dip their toe in the trend without (literally) knocking someone out with a structured design.

That being said, stay tuned for more frills coming from me soon!

Los Angeles, CA

After hectic week and a nightmare-ish move, I’ve finally found myself on a little vacation here in New England.  Surrounded by family, friends and Atlantic Ocean air, I must say, there’s no place like home in the summer. 

That being said, I’ve embraced a carefree, vacation state-of-mind with today’s look.  Inspired by the seventies, the iconic jumpsuit is back and better than ever! Reinvented with modern silhouettes and bold prints, there is a style for just about everybody to love.

Cozy and comfier than pajamas, the jumpsuit makes your life simple, while managing to add personality to your summer wardrobe.  With tons of styling options and designs, you can transition from dressy to daytime in a cinch—depending on the piece you choose.     

I’ve gone with a bold printed, wide-legged piece from H&M but I suggest that if this is your first jumpsuit, you go with a denim style.  Classic, yet totally on trend for the season, it is a bit easier to pull off.

Santa Monica, CA.


A couple of weeks ago I was lucky enough to shoot with the brilliant Leo Jaramillo, with hair and makeup by the equally talented Kristen Koskella.  Bright and early on a Saturday morning- I’m talking 7:30AM early- we all got together down at Leo’s place in Santa Monica to do a quick little shoot.  Busy with additional shoots later in the day, my old friends who I met working on a film a couple years ago, were kind enough to take time out of their busy weekends to shoot with me and catch up over some coffee and doughnuts (and even some cronuts too!)  Nothing wakes you up at 7 in the morning like a giant CRONUT! 

Leo is able to make even the simplest things look amazing, while capturing the essence of a moment or place.  From his charming green painted balcony a couple stories up, he is able to quickly take you to the neighborhood streets of Santa Monica: complete with tall palm tress, the quiet calm of the morning, and the serenity that life near the ocean immediately brings.  His apartment is only a couple of blocks away from my boyfriend’s childhood home, and over the past couple of years, spending lots of time there, I have come to find these streets to be incredibly peaceful; an escape from the city and a bit of a home away from home. 

I chose to show off my new favorite shades- these adorable and affordable retro round sunglasses from Forever21.  I adore them.  They complete todays retro inspired look!  And what’s not to love about this floral wide-legged jumpsuit from Urban Outfitters?  It’s honestly one of the most comfortable things I own and it’s effortlessly cool.
