I love a good floral dress for spring and couldn’t resist this feminine boho one from my favorite Aussie brand; Zimmermann. I wore this one to a bridal event in Downtown LA that I attended the other week. You’ve seen me wear several Zimmermann dresses and jumpsuits over the years (like here, here and here) – I just can’t get enough of them! What makes them so special is the craftsmanship, detail, material, flattering cut, unique patterns and draping that hugs your curves in all the right places. Their pieces are a higher price point, but when I think about cost per wear and the quality (I’ve had some of their pieces for 4+ years and they still look brand new) I don’t feel that bad about spending a bit more! I’ve had this dress since 2015 and worn it countless times; to brunches, birthdays, events – I’ve even lent it to friends for their bridal showers! It’s a timeless piece – just like all of their pieces. Omg remember this dress?! It’s one of my faves! These pics make me miss the streets of Soho ;) Are you a Zimmermann fan? What’s your dream piece from their latest collection? This one’s mine! PS I included some similar looking Zimmerman-esque dresses below that are a fraction of the price!
I’ve been incorporating more and more all natural, organic beauty products into my routine and wanted to share a few of my favorites with you! I keep coming back to this facial oil by Indie Lee. It’s only $32 – a fraction of the price of other facial oils – and keeps my skin feeling so hydrated. Use it in the morning or at night – and even add it to your foundation for a boosting effect. This coconut body polish from Herbivore is a treat to use weekly in the shower. I rub it in circular motions all over – and particularly around my butt/thigh area which needs more attention! It wakes up my skin and leaves it feeling uber soft! I did a blog post with iluminage years ago – and still use their silk eye mask to this day. It’s often sold out on Nordstrom because it’s so effective and well made. I notice a huge difference when I forget to pack it on trips! You are what you eat – which is why I incorporate collagen powder into my smoothies everyday. Vital Proteins just came out with this collagen creamer which adds the yummiest flavor to smoothies and baked goods! I haven’t been as good about dry brushing as normal lately and I definitely notice my digestion and circulation are a bit off so I’ll be dry brushing when I return home for sure! Call me crazy for purchasing an almost $100 glass water bottle filled with pink crystals – but I love it and it looks pretty on my desk/wherever I bring it and helps me drink more water since I always have it with me! I have heard such good things about The Beauty Chef products and just bought her cookbook! I’m looking forward to trying out her wellness products – particularly her inner glow beauty powder and collagen! I’ve heard that most leading makeup brand setting powders are extremely carcinogenic so I’ve been searching for a better option for a while now. This one from Jane Iredale has great reviews so I am going to test it out and report back! This conditioner smells HEAVENLY – I wish it were a perfume. The girl who created it lives in Venice and is just the sweetest. The conditioner and sea spray are my favorite products from her line. I’ve been hearing a ton of buzz around the line RMS Beauty – and judging from the reviews – it seems like I need this lip + cheek duo! What are some of your favorite wellness beauty products? Do tell!
Happy Monday! I’ve never been much of a sneaker person, but since moving to LA, comfort has become my priority and I now live in my Nikes or simple tennis shoes like these. I can’t tell you how comfortable these Keds are – it’s like walking on a cloud – seriously! I wore Keds growing up with my school uniform and am happy to be revisiting these classic shoes again. This light pink pair also comes in white – which I couldn’t resist ordering as well. A few of you were asking about the other pair of white sneakers I bought on Abbot Kinney for my trip to Tokyo and they are from a french brand called Spring Court. I couldn’t find them online except through their site which I was shocked about since they really are the perfect white sneaker! These ones from Cole Haan are super similar though and I can attest that they are great quality and very comfy – my sister has them ;) One trend I’m excited to test out – is pairing sneakers with dresses and skirts. Maybe it’s not a “trend” but it’s a look I haven’t tried out and I’ve been seeing a ton of stylish women in Tokyo rock it. That’s the thing I love the most about traveling – observing how other people dress, eat, and live – and incorporating some of those things into my own lifestyle! PS I’m in Tokyo for the rest of the week so be sure to keep up with my trip here!
Every week, I look forward to going to the Venice Farmer’s Market. It’s become a tradition of mine to wake up on Friday mornings and fill my straw tote with fresh flowers and produce. There is something truly special about meeting with the farmers, chatting with them, connecting with them, and then bringing home the produce to cook with. It really is that farm to table experience. I notice SUCH a difference in the produce in terms of color, taste, and smell when I buy it at the Farmer’s Market versus the grocery store. The produce lasts twice as long and is so much more flavorful and fresh. Last Friday, I got up super early to head to the Market and wore this cute stripe jumpsuit that I ordered from Bloomingdales 100% Exclusive line; Aqua. I paired it with my new round straw tote and a summery hat. I’m all about easy, breezy cotton jumpsuits and midi dresses for spring and summer – and Bloomingdales (and their 100% Exclusives section) literally has the best assortment. I’m excited to wear this simple navy cotton jumpsuit next week when I get back from Japan, and this pretty stripe maxi dress too! Oh, and can we talk about this blazer with gold buttons that comes in light pink and cream?! NEED! Andddd it comes with matching trousers – how fab right?!
