It’s been a hot week here in LA but somehow I couldn’t resist putting on my new leopard jogger pants with this baggy anorak jacket.  Aren’t the two so nice together? Baggy joggers are perfect for those hot days when you don’t want to put on heavy denim (or shave your legs…) am I right?! It’s definitely a nice option for me, ha : )

Anorak jackets are nice layering pieces and this khaki one is perfectly versatile – a great go-to piece.

Last week I went to an event hosted by Gorjana jewelry and was gifted this beautiful Mila Cuff.  Is is a collaboration with blogger Happily Grey  - they did such a great job! It’s sleek and a good layering piece.  Check out more of their collab pieces on the Gorjana site!

No news here – all black has always been a great option in my book.  I tried keeping things fresh by dressing down this awesome basket weave, asymmetrical skirt.  I love the fit and texture it adds to the outfit and asymmetric lines are always flattering on the legs!

These boots from Windsor are super comfortable and the best part – they slip on! Kind of funny how that 1-minute time saver can make all the difference : )

Some Insta-moments:

Last Friday I got to hang with Jenn Penn.  She is a youtuber and was so sweet to be around.  After giving her a tour of LOVE NAIL TREE, we went to Zinc Cafe and visited the Quay Eyeware HQ.  Aren’t these minty sunglasses so cute?!

One of my favorite new skin care lines is Visage De Layla.  I’ve been getting to know Layla over the last few months and I love the products so much! I’ll be sharing more on them in the next few days…

Last night was a wonderful experience… I attended a dinner hosted by Darling Magazine and The Giving Keys.  The night was full of yummy food and amazing conversation amongst women that are taking aim and believing in themselves and being honest with their struggles.  I love both of these companies and last night really just sealed the deal for me : )

MAXI DRESS + BIRKS

A super casual outfit in this oversized maxi dress and slip-on birks! During the summer it always seems that the less you try for an outfit, the better they turn out : ) It’s the careless-cool vibes that I’m all about.

This beautiful leather clutch is by Ian Kafoury and handmade in Portland.  The stitching, the finish of the leather, the smell, the quality… this is a timeless piece and I love knowing that it was special made by Ian, the designer. He just started his business a few months ago and it’s an honor to own a piece and share it with you here.

I had a total pleasure of hanging with famous Vine girl, Brittany Furlan, at the LOVE NAIL TREE warehaas.  She is a big fan of our clothing line and was so cool to hang out with.  I laughed for about an hour straight : )
