How was your weekend? If I’m honest, I’m lying in bed under the weather after one of our busiest weekends yet since moving to LA. Lots of fun projects and our first beach day of 2017, so no regrets. If you’re in need of some style inspiration for the week, wear camouflage! Here, I styled it with neutral grays  and a neutral bag. As a styling rule of thumb, treat camouflage like leopard. Don’t wear it head to toe, and compliment it with neutrals. Viola, weekday casual at its best.

Once a week we go on a day date which involves running errands to places like Home Depot and then rewarding ourselves with our new obsession: iced green boba tea. It’s sort of my new favorite date despite the extra long time spent staring at 2×4’s at Home Depot. Occasionally, I switch up this cute lace off the shoulder dress by wearing it as a tunic. I found it at Nordstrom Rack, which you gotta love as a go-to destination for affordable basics. They have a great selection and carry some of my favorite brands like rag + bone. You just have to shop fast because things sell out fast. And if you’ve followed me for a while, you know my favorite combination is rips, lace and nude sandals. Thankfully, I can always find at least one of those at the Rack. After all, you look best in what you FEEL like wearing.

Breezy light chiffon proves the best kind of ventilation for that dry desert air. And looking effortlessly chic? Well, that’s a bonus along with crazy wind blown hair. I paired the dress with a wrap heel that happens to go with everything. And yes, planning our next trip to the desert stat.

IMG_1464FullSizeRenderIt’s no secret I love all things denim. And denim that is frayed is, well, you know, a major bonus. This top has been sold out and now it is back in stock! Just wanted to let you know first. Now, back to getting ready for the Monday rush after a short getaway to Palm Springs. Which was a little crazy but well worth the adventure. What did you do this weekend, any adventures?  XO

Years ago, I borrowed my mom’s gorgeous traditional Portuguese embroidered vest from her closet. It was chic, bohemian, and super cool for its old time traditional flavor. Recently, I spotted this lacy embroidered crop top and it reminded me of that very vest from long ago. In fact, I totally feel like I’m channeling her seasoned taste and European heritage when I wear this piece. And what better time to wear it than festival season? Who’s going to Coachella? I’m not sure what spells music and desert air more than lace, cold shoulder and cropped. Don’t forget to stock up on extra long white jeans (because I almost always stain them), and round sunnies. Countdown to desert air and endless tunes starts NOW.

Cold Shoulder Stripe

by Shalice Noel

DSC_1825   DSC_1843   Ironically, even though the calendar says Spring, I’m all about the sweaters lately. Chunky, sleeveless, oversize, cropped, and yes, cold shoulder. I want them all. And thanks to El Niño, we actually have an excuse to wear one. Score! I love a sweater that works dressed down with my favorite beat up grey chucks and dressed up with my olive square toe sandals. Options are good. Also key is the demure shoulder slit and slightly oversize fit to balance over skinny jeans. So flattering. A perfect marriage of stripe and cold shoulder love. Bon weekend everyone X
