After a month of amazing adventures to the Grand Canyon, Bali, and New York, I am incandescently happy to be home to the mean streets of Venice, CA. And what afternoon would be complete with out romping around back alleys with pineapples, cowboy hats, and graffiti? Shot by my favorite buns at The Two Photography.

The days have been gloriously summer-like; not a trace of cold winter swells anywhere in Los Angeles. So naturally a bright white crochet-crop top and floral maxi skirt are the only way to go about a day of errands in Santa Monica. If you look closely, you could have thought these were taken in a quant little Italian town…..those ocean bluffs are just so magical.

In the back alleys of Venice, that’s where I feel most at home…with the climbing jasmine vines, the pastel painted fences, and the sweet smell of creativity. Changing in cars, running from angry neighbors, and recking havoc as only Venice girls can; that’s the kind of photo shoot that makes for an truly magical afternoon along the canals.
As always, shot by the one and only, thetwophotography.
That’s truly the golden hour.
Waking up for my trip to Palm desert was something like Christmas…with all the butterflies, expectation, and crazy nervous energy you get before opening a pile of presents. But instead of ripping the paper off of Christmas goodies, I got to drive to the desert with all the colors of the most glorious magenta and lemon colored sunrise, stopping in the middle of the desert for one of the most magical photo shoots ever, with the amazing girls from thetwophotography. Check out more of their beautiful work here!
This weekend, I’m styling a fashion tutorial photo shoot. Here’s a little sneak peak into one of the looks we’ll be styling….you guessed it, glitter on glitter goodness.
Fall in Southern California can be a tricky business. It’s the second week in November, and we are having a full flown Indian summer….the 80 degree beach days, bikini and boating adventures kind of Indian summer. So what’s a girl to wear, when all her fall coats and scarves make her sweat just thinking about them? The answer my dears, are maxi skirts. I have more maxi skirts in my closet then any other article (yes, even shoes). They are so easy to pair with a crop top, chunky sweater, or plunging neck line body suit. They are unbearably sexy, while being the most comfortable thing I can possibly think of wearing. To kick up the Fall punch, I love pairing a maxi with a cozy beanie.
After spending possibly the best weekend of my life, I thought it was appropriate to come back to earth with neutral shades of black and white. In homage to black cadillac limos and white sailboats, I put together this easy breezy outfit with pieces from some of my favorite places.
