Good morning friends, I’m currently writing this post in beautiful Denver, Colorado as I’m sure you’ve seen by now through Instagram. It’s gorgeous here and perfect sweatshirt weather especially in this lighter lace up piece by David Lerner. I’m sure you’ve seen a lot of the lace up trend popping up, but out of all the styles out there, this by far is my favorite and softest that I own.
Spring has sprung and I always keep it casual which is why David Lerner’s pieces are right up my alley. No frills, just a touch of luxury that turns casual wear into something really special.
P.S @twelfthknight and I leave on Tuesday back to SF, I intend on wearing this sweatshirt to the airport because it’s the perfect way to keep warm! See you back in the Bay.
Walking through SF’s Ferry Plaza one morning, I overheard one of the restaurant workers outside belting out Otis Redding’s classic and that song stuck with me all week. Spring feels like it’s arrived in the Bay Area and I’m fully welcoming it, so I grabbed a pastry and coffee at Blue Bottle and met Julia for a morning stroll along the water.
We have plans, let me tell ya. I think we’re still jazzed from our NY trip. She’s insanely motivated as a shooter and we both want to help see each other’s goals through. Grateful for our working relationship that’s turning into friendship.
SF Spring weather usually requires a jacket, so this thrifted denim piece I got for $6 in Denver last year is something you’ll be seeing more of. By the way….I’ll be in Denver with @twelfthknight last week of this month, so come with me as I eat my way through and thrift some more :D
Spring is my favorite time of year in the Bay Area. You’ll be seeing a lot of new looks, bigger campaigns, new hair, and more travel. Wishing you a wonderful week ahead!
I met Emilyanne the first full day in Denver and I’m terribly grateful I got to shoot with her. Emily shoots not only the beautiful bloggers of Denver, but also is a wedding and portrait photographer serving cities nationwide. We shot 3 looks in 45minutes just in time to see the sun go down. As you can see, there’s still a little bit of snow. I also saw many wild rabbits hopping through the valley :D
Thank you Emily for showing me a little bit of Colorado, a scenic view I would’ve never found on my own!
Good morning everyone, I’ve been in LA for a little bit and have now gotten back to posting. Can I just say how nice it is when everyone leaves to Coachella and those in LA have no traffic for 3 days? It’s great :D Anyhoo, I digress. With the weather heating up now, I’m sharing these brilliant laser cut out heels by Loucos Santos, thanks to online retailer Sole of Brasil. Sole of Brasil is home to established Brazilian shoe designers at affordable prices, based in the south bay of LA. It’s a one stop shop.
I shot this before I left for LA, but with the weather as it is, I think they’d be paired nicely with a denim skirt or a maxi dress. I think it’s time I start trading in my jeans for skirts, my sneakers for sandals, and Sole of Brasil can help me do just the thing.

They say behind every great man is a great woman, but in House of Cards, a step ahead of every great man is an impeccably dressed Claire Underwood. I’m talking about power looks. Memorable, feminine, but strong pieces down to the heels can make you walk, talk, and stand with purpose you might not even know you had.
Claire’s a bad bitch, quite possibly too bad for her own good, but hey that’s entertainment. I’d know, I’ve been in the industry for a decade, which I should mention is changing rather rapidly for me. I’ll post more about the turn my career has taken in the next weeks to come, but until then hang tight as I come to terms with the changes :)
Channeling my favorite Underwood, I pulled together this rather simple power look and instantly I was fired up.
Huge thanks to Erich Chen for this set, for our first shoot together I couldn’t be happier.
There’s a saying out there that I firmly believe in: “No pants are the best pants.” It’s so true. Now don’t get me wrong, I love my J Brands, but if I could wear joggers every day then I would. Comfort is everything. Take these BCBGeneration pants for example. They’re a high waisted billowy chiffon pant with a daring slit that gives Angelina Jolie’s leg on that Oscars red carpet a run for her money. Sorry Angie ;)
