Cheery Cherries

 {Vintage skirt via Guvnor's Vintage, J.Crew necklace, Madewell tank, shoes, and bag}

Hello again! Six months later and I'm a college graduate, living in Brooklyn, and working at J.Crew. 

The weather in New York is sweltering, so lately I've been reaching for easy, fun, swingy things to wear. I picked up this skirt at a vintage shop around the corner from my apartment (too close for comfort, knowing my addiction). I couldn't resist the summery print and vibrant colors.

My apartment for the summer. I'm absolutely smitten with it.

Denim and Stars

{vintage dress and Levi's jacket via Melrose Trading Post, Madewell boots, Coach bag}

The weather has been positively summery in Los Angeles as of late, so I capitalized on the opportunity to wear this breezy outfit to Venice for lunch and later to the beach. You know those items in your closet that you don't know how you ever lived without? This vintage jean jacket is one of them. I picked it up at the flea market a couple weeks ago, and have been living in it ever since. The same goes for these boots- they've been my footwear staple since the temperatures dropped, but I love that I'll be able to wear them year round as well. The dress was also a fun find...I love the smattering of stars. 

Sidenote: I'm now managing social media for an outstanding men's fashion start up called The Black Tux. Follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram (@theblacktux), if you please.

Shades of Blue

I recently picked up these booties, and I have to say, I'm very in love with them. I adore the classic Chelsea boot shape modernized by the cobalt paneling. Inspired by that vibrant hue, I paired the boots with a deep blue dress (worn as a skirt) and one of my favorite navy sweaters.

Colorful Prep

Around the time of year when it gets cool enough to wear layers, I find myself drawn to preppier, classic looks. Case in point: this outfit combines red jeans, stripes, and a blazer. During the fall and winter, I love to combat dreary days with colorful pieces.

Sunday Brunch

{Madewell sweater, Madewell skirt, Madewell boots, Madewell sunglasses, J.Crew necklace, Trina Turk bag}

Took these photos while out on a brunch adventure last Sunday. I finally made the journey to Gjelina, and I'm so glad I did. The food was fantastic, and so was the people-watching. A weekend brunch is one of my favorite occasions to get a little glamorous--with nothing on the agenda besides a decadent feast, it just feels right. 

Happy Thanksgiving!

Los Angeles Moments

A few shots that illustrate my ongoing love affair with Los Angeles...
{The scene inside Mohawk General Store, a fantastic shop in the heart of Silverlake. Don't you wish Breathless was always playing in the background of daily life?}

{Crushing hard on round sunglasses.}

{Really wish I needed these.}

{Useful reminder.}

{How much happier we would probably all be if all our buildings looked like this...}

{Venice, CA}

{One of my favorite sandwich shops in the city. If you ever stop by, don't miss the donuts either.}

{Beach day in November.}

{One of the most beautiful sunsets I have ever seen.}

Have a lovely weekend!

First Days of Fall

Here in Los Angeles, temperatures are finally starting to drop. (And by drop, I mean that lows are nearing the 60s.) I can finally wear more than one layer and not feel like I'm going to melt.

I love the chance to play with Americana-inspired colors, so I paired this poppy red blazer with my wear-anywhere chambray dress for class the other day. I'll be honest, I was looking for a fun way to wear my new favorite shoes. These beauties mix so many of my favorite things: a tomboy loafer, tassels, a splash of red, and classic camel. The best part? They just went on sale.

We'll see if the fall temperatures are here to's supposed to be back in the high 80s by the weekend.
