On Trend: Summer Staples


Sometimes my closet overwhelms me.

It’s organized by color, style, and season with shoes in boxes and pictures of each displayed neatly on the outside.  I have my accessories accessibly hanging cleanly and my sweaters folded like a department store on the shelves (for my favorite closet organizing tips visit here). And still, I stare at a closet full of clothes and get that feeling that I have nothing to wear.

Wear of the Week: White Pants and a Chunky Sweater

ImageI did it.

It was early October and overcast and was just begging to be worn: I busted out the chunky knit for the first time this season.Image

One of my most favorite things to wear, an oversized chunky sweater is classic and comforting with a hint of boho-chic.  It keeps you warm on a crisp day, is a great cover-up when you have had one too many holiday treats, and still looks effortlessly stylish.


When my mom and I saw this sweater at a quaint boutique last fall, we knew it was a must-have.  The bold colors make it a perfect match with dark denim, brown cords, and (obviously) white denim.  To add a bit of benevolence to our purchase, I bought my mom’s and she bought mine- charitable shopping at its finest.


What is one item you can’t wait to bring out for fall?

Wear of the Week: White Pants and Floral


During my travels, I love to bring home a trinket or two to remind me of my time there and the memories I created.  While most travel back with a coffee mug or a t-shirt that reflect the destination’s heritage, I, more often than not, travel back with clothes.

This is especially the case when I travel out of country.  Trends start sooner in other countries, especially in Europe, and I feel like I get to bring back a part of the future when I purchase clothes there.


On a trip to Madrid three years ago, I picked up this floral blouse and I have worn it every fall season since.  It is wrinkle-free so it travels really well and it looks great with both denim and leggings.


This is a great pairing to the white denim as it brings in fall colors to balance out the white bottoms.  I cinched it with a skinny belt to accentuate the waist since the tunic is more of a blousey fit.


What do you like to bring back as a souvenir when you travel?

Wear of the Week: Boom + Leather Vest


Although we live close to the coast in a laid back Southern California town, I frequently like to channel an urban vibe for my ensemble.  There is something uber chic about wearing all black, accenting with leather, and accessorizing with bold accessories and sequins.  It makes me feel I am in the bustling streets of NYC instead of 20 yards from the ocean in a quaint downtown.


This is exactly what I was going for in the final Wear of the Week look.  I layered the Boom sweatshirt with a vegan leather vest (one of the most versatile pieces I have in my closet for fall), red pants (they’re ba-a-a-ck), black leather boots and oversized hoop earrings.

Am I in Malibu or Manhattan?  You would never know.
