spring steps

West Hollywood, CA


It’s cold, it’s hot—the weather changes so much this time of year that it's impossible to know if you need duck boots or sandals when you step outside. And as we near the cusp of spring (yay!) I think it's a good time to pull out those transitional pieces that will carry you through both seasons (no matter the weather).

Working as a fashion editor for many years, I lived in heels but nowadays, I've found that an outfit can be just as stylish with a pair of comfy boots or sneakers. The Hattie Sneaker by Vionic proves that it's totally possible to be comfortable and look put together in a pair of kicks. In fact, Vionic designs all of their shoes with supportive technology so that you don't ever have to suffer through a day of painful walking again! And because I live on-the-go, I really need a pair of shoes that will keep up with the many steps I take a day (and not leave me with blistered feet). I love pairing these with blazers, dresses and maxi skirts for a bit of contrast.

Oh and can we talk about these jeans for just a second? Are they pants? Are they shorts? Doesn't matter. I'm comfortable, warm, and still able to feel a little breeze on the ankles. 

Spring, I'm ready for ya!

The Spring Midi Skirt

Everyone’s favorite winter staple is stepping its way into spring.

Remember that midi skirt I wore back in January while hiking the hills of San Francisco? Well it’s making a comeback here today.

Bouncy, fun and oh so feminine it’s perfect for a daytime brunch or in my case here, a dinner downtown.  There is something so inherently fun about wearing this skirt. Skipping along the city streets, I actually began to forget all about how far I was walking or the fact that I had forgotten to bring a coat.  It’s the perfect alternative to your traditional evening get-up.

So go ahead, get girly and try out the cross-seasonal midi.

Neutrals Are the New Black

Sometimes less really is more.

For a refreshing spring feel, reintroduce yourself light colors and neutral shades.  Today, I’ve decided to trade in my traditional LBD for this breezy slip dress from Ruche.  Delicate and feminine, it’s a flirty alternative to basic date night looks. Don’t you love the pretty pleats and ruffled neckline?

I think it pairs best with classic designs and colors so I chose to style it with nude ankle strap pumps, a pastel bracelet and an antique-feel necklace.
