SANTA MONICA

January 30, 2015


Good morning and happy almost weekend, Everyone! Whenever I get restless ( and with Fashion Week approaching fast, I've been getting restless quite a bit lately ), feel tired, uninspired or under the weather, Emil and I head straight to Santa Monica, get a cup of tea or coffee and just sit on the beach staring at the ocean. You know, they say there are three things you can look at forever, burning fire, water and starry sky... Well, staring at the ever-changing Pacific ocean tends to do the trick for me. A few hours at the beach, and I feel like a new person! Bight-eyed, bushy-tailed and ready for action! :) 

What about you guys, is there a place you go to recharge? 

NEW IN :: DYLANLEX FALKOR

January 28, 2015


Good morning, Everyone! How is your week going so far?

I wanted to take this opportunity to share a few images of what is possibly my most favorite piece of jewelry of all time, i.e. the out-of-this-world amazing DYLANLEX Falkor necklace

It arrived last week, and as soon as I got it, I started roaming through my closet trying to find something absolutely perfect to pair it with only to realize that it really didn't matter what I wore, the necklace made any outfit look spectacular! Chic, edgy and oh-so-very-modern, I still marvel at it's ability to transform a basic tee and jean look into something entirely sophisticated and polished! Oh, and how I love the way it pairs with crisp button downs and leather jackets, in fact, I have a feeling thanks to this marvel-of-a-necklace that'll be my new uniform from now on! Hope you guys don't mind:)

BARELY PINSTRIPES

January 26, 2015


Good morning, Everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! 

Honestly, I can't believe it was cold and rainy just 2 weeks ago, but there you have, LA weather is that unpredictable and sometimes Summer begins in January:) Not that I am not happy about that! I love the warmth and the sunshine! Yet, I don't feel like I am quite ready to put away my Winter wardrobe just yet, but I suppose at some point in time it becomes increasingly difficult to ignore the the fact that it's 82 degrees outside and everyone is in shorts:) 

PLAID IN SAN LUIS OBISPO

January 24, 2015


Good morning, Everyone! Hope you are all enjoying your weekend! 

I wanted to say a quick hello and share a few pics Emil and I took in San Luis Obispo on the way back from San Simeon. As I have mentioned in the past, Emil and I love taking these mini driving trips along California coast line. 

Since normally,  it takes about 4 - 5 hours to get to San Simeon and I am the biggest baby in the world and become pretty restless after spending even 2 hours in the car, we always make a few stops along the way. A coffee and a quick walk in Santa Barbara, lunch in San Luis Obispo ( an incredibly charming town, by the way ) not only breaks up the monotony of driving but also gives us a chance to explore a few wonderful coastal towns. For example, this time around, we spent a few hours walking around San Luis Obispo and I have to say, it's one of my new favorite places ever! So, if you ever decide to make this trip, I definitely recommend making a stop. Oh, and you have to check out Scout Coffee on Garden Street! Best coffee I ever had, hands down! :) 

MALIBU CASUAL & PROENZA SCHOULER BUCKET BAG

January 21, 2015


Good morning, Everyone! Hope your week is going great! 

This is yet another one of my outfits comprised entirely of new and old favorites. Most you've met before, some more than others:) Yep, I'm talking about the Isabel Marant boots I've been wearing religiously. But honestly, I am obsessed!!! Not only do I love they way they look, they also happen to be really comfortable, which makes it even more difficult to wear anything else. 


RUN AWAY WITH ME

January 19, 2015


Good morning, Everyone! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend! 

Since I've been getting quite a few reader emails asking about my fitness routine, I decided to take this opportunity to talk to you a little bit about what it is that I normally do to stay in shape. 

First and foremost, I prefer to exercise outside because when it comes to working out, scenery is very important to me. Looking at the same four walls at the gym makes my workouts feel like a chore, but being outdoors, always makes working out feel fresh and new. 

PLEATED PINK

January 17, 2015

Good morning, Everyone! How is your weekend going so far? 

Ok, so I'll be the first to admit that wearing sandals smack in the middle of winter is a bit insane! In fact, when I think about January appropriate footwear, sandals are pretty much the last thing that come to mind:) Yet, I find myself in this particular dilemma every year. That very familiar place where things I feel I should be wearing in Winter and things I actually can wear, given that it's about 80 degrees outside, don't exactly match. Sure, I've been trying to keep up the pretense that it's still Winter in LA by layering and wearing boots with pretty much everything, but as temperatures continue to soar, I am faced with the inevitable. Sandal weather is here:) 

Not that I am complaining about this! I'll take all the warmth and sun I can get! Maybe I am not quite ready to give up on cozy coats, sweaters and boots just yet...
