All Saints Lois Blazer - I recently purchased a sleeveless blazer from Forever 21 and it has quickly become a closet staple. I wear it so much I’m thinking of taking the plunge on this lovely All Saints version. You can wear it with skinny jeans, cut-off shorts and dresses – the options are honestly endless. Dress it up or dress it down, it seriously works for any and every occasion!
3.1 Phillip Lim Scout Small Drawstring Lux Crossbody in Black – Now that CK is working at 3.1 Phillip Lim I’ve definitely got their handbags on my mind like all the time. I can’t wait to add one to my collection and am seriously considering the cross body in black. It looks like it’s the perfect size to tote around all day long, and the black and gold make it oh so classically chic.
Topshop Slouchy Pocket Tee – A light gray slouchy long sleeve shirt or sweater is an absolute Summer must. Layer it over a tank and rock it with a pair of cut-offs for the perfect, effortlessly chic nighttime look. I absolutely love wearing a neutral sweater, denim and a bold pair of shoes.
All Saints Patch Casey Jeans – Skinny distressed jeans will always be a go-to piece for me. Whether it’s Summer or Winter, denim like this will make it into your weekly denim rotation.
Carrera 57mm Sunglasses – Yellow and clear shades. Totally Summer.
All Saints Revell Lowe White Shorts - White shorts go with pretty much any and every top in my closet, so I’m pretty sure it’ll be the same dealio for you as well. Dress them up with strappy Zara sandals, or down with some Nike Dunks. Whatever you do, you’ll always look uber California Dreamin’.
Asos Open Stone Bangle – The most perfect delicate bracelet. Use it to layer into an arm party or rock it all by its dainty self.
All Saints Manifest Boot in Gray - Seriously such an amazing pair of shoes. I tried them on and I want them so bad. Now, I know I had pretty much sworn off new platforms in a previous post, but after writing it I realized I think boots will still be an exception. If the platform is hidden enough I’ll make it work into my French lady chic wardrobe. I just know that if I get these boots they will be the ultimate year-round staple!

These Zara shoes have become an instant favorite and closet staple. The delicate heel and neutral t-strap make it a perfect shoe for pretty much any occasion. Or maybe it’s just me rationalizing that they work for every occasion so that I can wear them all the time! Either way, they’re in heavy rotation.
If you know me and have been reading my blog, you know that I am a shoe girl. I think about shoes a lot and lately I’ve been thinking that I may need to break-up with my long time boyfriend – the platform heel. There are so many things I love about the platform. They’re comfortable, they make me really tall and they’re easy to dance in. But…there comes a time in a ladies life when we have to grow up and realize that the French women are oh so chic in their tees, skinny jeans and delicate stilettos. I will never ever be the dainty French woman I aspire to be in my clunky chunky platform heels (well, that and the fact that I don’t live in France and I’m not French, but whatevs). So for now and the near future, platform heels won’t be entering my heart of shoes.
It’s time for another installment of Pinterest Productivity! Pinterest Productivity all started when I began to realize that I was pinning hundreds and hundreds of pins, and wasn’t doing anything with them. I mean, they’re lovely to look at, but what’s the point if I’m not going to put them to use. So in an effort to increase my productivity I decided to blog about pins I’d take from the screen and into real life.
This installment of Pinterest Productivity includes three Summer recipes I’m itching to try. The grilled chicken and corn salad, Parmesan Baked Tomatoes and Salmon Cakes are on my must make next week list. Once I make these lovelies, I’ll make sure to post them on Instagram and on the blog for your viewing pleasure.
Now, I challenge you to breathe life into three of your favorite Pinterest Pins!
Red Heels Zara (old) | Brandy Melville Sweater | Silky Urban Outfitters Shorts
I wore these shorts and red platform heels in Las Vegas last weekend and boy, oh boy did I make a great decision. These shoes are incredibly comfortable and the shorts made dancing so much better. If you’re heading out for a night on the town, I definitely recommend a pair of black shorts.

Not sure how the weather has been in your neck of the woods, but for us in Southern California it was been nothing but HOT, HOT, HOT! I’ve been slowly putting away my winter wares, but after this weekend I think they’re all going to the back of the closet for a very long time. So long faux fur, thigh high boots and knit sweaters – until we meet again!
Not so long to my faux leather leggings. I already decided I’m wearing those into Summer, I don’t care what anyone says about that. It’s happening.
When I started writing this post yesterday I thought I’d be sharing photos that have inspired recent changes in my style, but then I clicked through an Emerson Fry photo from my Pinterest board and the post took on a life of it’s own. I’ve come across Emerson Fry on many blogs that I absolutely adore, but it wasn’t until yesterday that I realized just how incredibly amazing their pieces are. As I started to click through and view each and every look and piece, I was absolutely mesmerized by their incredibly chic and classic aesthetic. What I love about Emerson Fry is that their pieces are great together or integrated with pieces already in your wardrobe. You can add in some wide leg jeans to lend a more boho look or a leather jacket for an edgy touch, the options are really quite unlimited.
I dare you to check out their clothes and not become absolutely obsessed with saving up to pick up a few pieces for Spring and Summer.
Side note: I’ve recently completely re-thought my approach to my closet. I want my closet to be a place I want to shop. Instead of storing clothes, I want to feel like I’m entering my favorite boutique each and every morning of my life. Now, I know this is going to take sometime, but I’m quite excited to start building an exceptionally curated collection. I’ve been selling many, many of my previous purchases to local thrift stores and on Poshmark, because to be honest for a long time I would buy pretty much everything that caught me eye. That time of my life is over, and I’m more focused on purchasing pieces I want to wear every single day of my life!
