From Coast to Coast







(By Corpus sweater and skirt, Posso x Volcom swimsuit top, Sienna Ray handbag (special code to shop 25% off entire purchase: "SiennaRaySummer"), 80%20 shoes)

I am enjoying being home on the west coast way too much right now! I love NY but you can beat the weather here. It's brilliant right now and all I want to do is be outdoors by the water. Surprising I know, considering I'm terribly pale and look like I've lived in a twilight setting or something compared to everyone else on the beach with their bronzed bods and sprayed-on tans! So yeah, there's me. I've got my pink striped sweater SUN PROTECTION SUN PROTECTION over my favorite little Posso x Volcom bikini top. It's got a retro feel to it and comes with the cutest super high waisted bottom (not pictured hehe). It totally reminds me of something my mom used to wear here in Santa Monica when she was just a hot young babe! This sunny, clear day left me sooo lazeballs that I nearly fell asleep on the grass along Ocean Ave. It felt pretty good.

A Love Story..... Sorta

IMG_5704-2IMG_5714-2
After drooling over these pumps for several months and realizing that I drooled too long and my size had sold out everywhere, I was a tad bit sad until I found them sitting pretty in a boutique in Miami (see twitpic here of me wearing it.) At first I thought I was hallucinating. I was sunburnt and suffering a heatstroke due to falling asleep on the rooftop pool thanks to having too much fun the previous day. Once I realized that these were in fact the Isabel Marant pumps that I've been lusting after and the last pair which were my size I felt like my sunburn disappeared. Thanks to my lovely Wesley Mason, I brought these back to California with me and now they are sitting pretty on my desk. Unfortunately, I'm still quite burnt so I haven't actually worn them out yet.
The second picture is my current jewelry tray of my favorite pieces that I've been wearing all the time which includes necklaces from Anarchy Street, bracelets from Bimba & Lola, Low Luv, CC Skye, and a random jewelry place I found awhile back.

Batty Natty







(80%20 shoes, White + Warren tee, We Are Rubbish shorts, Bally bag)

Photos by Raych of That's Chic

I had to call this post "Batty Natty" because that was the title of the folder these images were on, sent by the amazing Raych of That's Chic! She was in NYC for work and so of course we had to get together! During her stay, we went out with friends for an evening dinner, but then the weather turned on us and it started raining like crazy. The thunder and lightning actually created an awesome view from her hotel windows, which overlooked all of Manhattan! Us dorky girls had a night in, watched comfort television like The Cosby Show, all while getting tipsy on our wine. She is the funniest girl I know and I'm so happy we get to got together on the east coast! We snapped these photos by Cooper Square in the East Village, where we stumbled upon this awesome looking doorstep. It was an old building and the black paint was chipping off, but it definitely had that classic New York charm. I always feel like wearing stripes now, it is such a New York thing! The shoes are perfect for when I need to wear heels in the city. With the thick sole, they feel like sneakers! Now that I look at these pictures, I can see why Raych labeled me as BATTY NATTY! Welcome to the dark side :)

When Colors Call My Name

01
(Anarchy Street Necklace, Ani Chain Tank, Bimba & Lola Starfish Cuff, Zara Orange Pleated Skirt, Joe's Jeans Brenda Wedges, Botkier Bag Coming Soon)

I'm currently suffering a too much sun attack illness because I fell asleep on the rooftop pool of my hotel on my last day. I've been feeling dizzy ever since I got back and have been sleeping nonstop. Can't believe I'm feeling sick after coming back from paradise. These pictures were taken before the sun attack and I've learned the importance of SPF. I swear, I put on SPF 30 but apparently it's not enough for the strong Miami sun. Gotta get my hands on SPF 70!
Hope you guys have a lovely week!!

Swimfan






(Volcom swimsuit and skirt, Little Darlings Hawaii necklaces)

Here I am at my home in California, by the pool, rocking a few of my favorite new Volcom pieces. I flew back to LA this week to continue my work with Volcom. I just shot the Spring '12 campaign yesterday and am currently designing pieces for the Fall 2012 collective. I'm super excited! I'm focusing on key pieces like skirts, dresses, and tops! It's a totally new experience, but the whole design process seems to be coming naturally for me. How crazy is it, to get to wear my own clothes?! Right now I am rocking the Posso x Volcom one piece swimsuit designed by none other than Marylouise Pels and Vanessa Giovacchini, the stylish DJ duo! I'm obsessed with their swimwear designs this season. This one has a very sexy low back. I love this for an afternoon by the pool with nothing but a sheer black skirt and some of my favorite seashell jewels straight from Hawaii.

In Miami

(Anarchy Street Necklace and Top, Urban Outfitters High Waisted Shorts, Jeffrey Campbell Ford Platforms c/o Need Supply, Botkier Bag coming soon)

Photos by the one and only Donatella

On Wednesday, I jetted out to Miami to shoot with Monica Botkier from Botkier for Vogue Eyewear CFDA City Collection. Monica designed a pair of sunglasses inspired by the city Miami which will be sold at Sunglass Hut later this year, so we toured around her favorite spots and really experienced the Miami life.
Can't wait to share with you guys more from this trip!

Travel Staples


(Vintage blouse and hat, SOLD Design Lab pants, Velvetine Paris bag, Cole Haan sandals)

Whenever I travel, I always throw a classic vintage white button down in my suitcase. It's my must-have and looks good with pretty much everything. Another travel staple? One of my vintage hats. I've been living in this brown one. Works wonders too when I don't feel like putting on makeup or doing my hair :) I feel a bit like Indiana Jones meets Jane Goodall meets "I'm goin on a safari ride in the desert." I love it! And I'm all for the classic black skinny, but this faux leather pair adds a cool edge to this look. What easy pieces are in your carry-on suitcase?

Photographed by Altamira on Crosby Street

I've always gone to Altamira: Modelsoffduty.com to take inspiration from the gorgeous candid photos of top fashion models as they strolled the dreamy streets of NYC showcasing their own personal style. I was an avid reader way before I started my blog and so it's crazy that now I am also featured on photographer Craig's website! He shot me in the heart of Soho, on beautiful Crosby Street, just off Broadway. I was in the middle of castings and was sporting my new favorite rust colored shorts along with a dotted blouse and cargo jacket. I've never been one of those models in a black tank and skinny jeans. It's way more fun to get dressed while playing with proportions and colors!
