Back to Reality

Downtown Los Angeles

Back in LA and back on the grind.

I started a new job and my office is downtown. It's a world away from the Westwood high rise that I'd come to know so well, but so far, I'm loving the change. So far, all I know is that I'm across the street from one of the best Italian restaurants in the city-- Bestia-- and I'm just a few blocks away from this spot called Pizzanista that serves $2 slices on Tuesdays. Surrounded by high-class pizza and pasta? What's not to love? The scene is refreshing, artistic and full of life. I can't wait to explore more!

This is my back to work look. It's great for any season and each piece is incredibly affordable, including the skirt that I found at H&M for just $12.99!

Show A Little Shoulder

Westwood, CA

The off-the-shoulder dress. No longer just a trend, this summery silhouette has become a wardrobe essential. It's flirty, fun and unlike last season's crop top its really easy to wear. So what more could you want in a dress? I say nothing. 

The polka-dotted number I chose to wear today from SHEIN is a standout. I love the cinched waist, silky feel and ruffled details. Oh and it's on SALE now! From gingham prints to beachy daytime styles, the off-the-shoulder dress is my pick for everything summer (day or night!)

Red, White & Bold

Los Angeles, CA

Time to pack your bags, turn on your out-of-office and head for the sun (and the fun!) It's a time for cookouts and clambakes. Fireworks and family picnics. It's that time of year again-Fourth of July! And this year, I'm heading out for a day of fun in Martha's Vineyard, MA with my family-- an island dotted with American flags, homemade ice cream shops and lobster stands. So instead of going bold in patriotic prints, I'm going for that classic, All-american look.

Happy 4th of July!
