I’ve been doing a MAJ spring cleaning overhaul and just listed about half of my wardrobe on Poshmark. You can shop it all here. I’ve never done such a huge clean out and can’t tell you how good it feels. I have more space in my closet, am re-wearing pieces I haven’t worn in years and am inspired to freshen things up. I’ve been shopping at Forever21 and Madewell a ton lately and am seriously impressed with their selection. I love that I have zero shopping guilt when I purchase something from there because everything is sooooo reasonable!! It’s been fun infusing my style with a more West Coast, laid back vibe since my full time residence is now a beach town. Don’t get me wrong – I still love my heels, pencil skirts, blazers and trousers, but it’s nice to embrace my inner California girl when I’m home. One of my best girlfriends from NYC is coming to town this weekend and we are going to head up to Malibu and do the Malibu Wine Safari and then lunch at Soho House Malibu, which has become my new office/second home. If you work from home, you know how important it is to get out of the house – otherwise you go stir crazy! I plan on re-wearing this look for our outing but with these sandals. I get so many compliments on this white fringe kimono and no one can believe it’s Forever 21. It’s only $32 and is still in stock here!
I’ve been getting a ton of questions lately about where I got the leather jacket I wore all last week in NYC! It’s this one that I bought for the event I hosted with Banana Republic last year. It sold out a while ago but I am loving this one, this one and this one. I literally wear it ALL the time. My go-to spring date night outfit usually consists of a flowy midi dress and a leather jacket. This red Iro dress with a subtle floral print has been on serious repeat. If it’s a more casual date night I’ll wear my Sam Edelman sandals or mules – if it’s a dressier one I’ll slip on these Stuart Weitzman heels. My favorite way to end a date is with ice cream at Salt + Straw on Abbot Kinney! I can honestly say it’s the best ice cream I’ve ever had. And I’ve had a lot of ice cream over the years!!! (The Juice Bar in Nantucket is a close second.) Salt + Straw always has an amazing vegan flavor FYI. Now that I’m back in LA, I’m trying to get back on track with my food/fitness routine. Staying healthy while traveling is not my strong suit and I’ve been trying to find inspo from my dear friend Candice Kumai. I’m thinking of trying her cleanse next week – looks good right?!
Up until a few months ago, I didn’t really have a set skincare routine. I would sometimes use night cream, maybe dab a bit of eye cream on (if I remembered,) and rarely used SPF (eek I know!) One of my girlfriends who is a few years older than me, is religious about her skincare routine. She takes SUCH amazing care of her skin and it shows – she literally glows without makeup on. She thankfully taught me the importance of skin maintenance and introduced me to Nu Skin ageLOC Me; a device that is basically a “one stop shop” for all of your skincare needs. I don’t like to take hours to get ready and don’t want a million products laying all over my counter so this sleek device is perfect for me. I love how it comes with 3 serums that weave into one easy dose, a day moisturizer (with SPF woo!) and a night moisturizer. Each product is customized based on a simple skin assessment I took before ordering that measures my skin’s sun exposure, hydration, etc. The products are automatically refilled and delivered to my door each month. In the morning I simply click a button and my serum + day moisturizer gets dispensed into my hand, then I rub both on, serum first, then moisturizer, and then dash out the door – a simple, two-step process. In the evening, I click the same button and my serum + night moisturizer gets dispensed. Easy as that! When you think about the cost and counter space of all of those different serums, SPF and moisturizer combined – the initial upfront cost of the ageLOC Me is 100% worth it. You can learn more about ageLOC Me here and take your own custom skin assessment here.
TGIF! I had the best week in NYC and am now headed to a wedding in North Carolina! I had brunch at Two Hands (you can download my Travel App to see all of my favorite restaurants) with one of my girlfriends yesterday and she was asking me what my must have pieces were for summer. Immediately off the top of my head, I thought of what I packed for this trip…an LBD, a light silk trench (this one is under $30!), simple sandals, a bucket bag, an army jacket to layer, a white blazer, silk trousers, boyfriend jeans, a leather jacket, a neutral clutch, and a floral dress. All pieces are interchangeable aka ideal for traveling! Here are a few pieces I am loving for summer…I couldn’t resist ordering this jumpsuit. This lipgloss is the best – I use it everyday. These aviators are badass – trust me they look good on everyone – and they’re only $50. This is such a great natural clutch (under $40) and this dress is now available for pre-order – dreamy. I love a good coffee table book and Gray Malin inspires me so much. These sandals are the kind that you can walk around in all day long – so comfy – need! Have a wonderful weekend!
