The Bright Side

West Hollywood, CA

Spring is in the air! And I'm dressing accordingly. 

I grabbed this gorgeous yellow tank at LOFT last weekend and between the lace detailing and marigold hue, it's quickly becoming a favorite. I paired it with some skinnies and my brand new metallic mules. A major step up from your basic flat, the mule is a must-have this season.  You couldn't ask for a better blend of style and comfort... am I right? Backless and bold, there are SO many versions to choose from (including velvet, fur and jacquard). I love the metallic rose gold, which will you pick?

Comfy, stylish and perfectly professional-- trouser pants really have it all! They’re undeniably feminine and about as classic as the beloved Annie Hall.  While it wasn’t exactly easy for me to make the transition from my go-to skinnies to the newer, silkier cuts that have made their way onto the scene, I feel like I’ve finally figured out how to make them my own.

These high-waisted maroon trousers are from Forever 21’s Contemporary line. They’re silky soft and pleated, which makes for a really flattering silhouette. I paired them with a flowy lilac top because I think the colors balance really nicely. What I love most about these pants, however, is the cropped ankles. It really shows off a great pair of shoes and helps to elongate your legs. With that in mind, I chose to wear these stunning new Coach sandals. They are a great ivory color so they pair well with just about everything.

I love this breezy, sophisticated look for spring.  How do you guys like to style your favorite pair of trousers? 

This lookout is located just a few blocks from my office. It’s a great little escape that we frequent from time to time.  There are baseball fields, hiking trails, dog parks and running paths but mostly we go there for the views. It’s really breathtaking and this week, I needed a refreshing break. I love this shoot because Danny, my coworker, (and incredibly talented photographer) was able to capture exactly how we were feeling.  Sometimes to stay grounded, all you need is a little bit of air.

Girly Style, All Grown Up

April 27, 2015

For a spring look that’s ultra-femme, try working a swishy tulle midi skirt into your wardrobe.  Set aside for dance recitals and Carrie Bradshaw highlight reels, this grown-up tutu skirt is making a serious comeback this season and while it’s not the easiest number to pull off, I’m going to show you just what you need to make it work. 

Because it’s already so girly,  try pairing  it with a more basic, textured top like this slouchy chambray Cloth & Stone button-up I found at Marshalls. For finishing touches, I’d stay away from delicate, floral or whimsical pieces.  You’ll notice I went with chunkier booties instead of pointy-toed flats and a bold statement necklace instead of dainty layering necklaces.  It creates contrast and allows you to achieve a more polished, adult feel. 

That being said, with a piece this lovely,  it's impossible not to end up with a look that’s perfectly ladylike.
