Lately On Instagram

Los Angeles, CA

TGIF!  Sorry I didn’t upload any traditional outfit posts this week!  As you can imagine, I’ve been dealing with a ton of behind the scenes paperwork and administrative stuff with my hacking/bank scam/identity theft saga.  I’m staying positive, meditating (my saving grace!), surrounding myself with friends and family, and just putting one foot in front of the other.

Thank you again from the bottom of my heart for your understanding and support during this time.

I wanted to share links to everything I wore this past week on Instagram since I received so many DMs about where each piece is from!  To be honest, I feel like I’ve been in a style rut for the past year figuring out how to transition my classic NYC wardrobe to my new, more casual, LA lifestyle and the 24/7 warm weather.  LA – and my new hometown Venice, is an insanely laid back surfing town. So the uniform around here is athleisure, boyfriend jeans, soft Ts or easy sundresses and flip flops.  Aka a total 180 from my past NYC uniform which was tailored and always put together lol!

I’m starting to really fine tune my wardrobe and have come up with a few casual outfit elements that combine my NYC closet and style with my LA one.  My one must have piece of the moment – to instantly pull together an outfit – is a BUTTON DOWN!  I love the look of a button down tied at the waist with a wide leg trouser.  You can dress this duo up with heels. Or pair it down with sandals and a bucket bag or straw tote. Furthermore, button downs in neutral colors are so versatile and can even be worn over dresses and tied or belted around the waist to cinch it.  Also, they look great tucked into skinny jeans with a thick brown leather belt.  Some of my favorite button downs are from Rails, Equipment, Madewell and Xirena. Enjoy your weekend!

    Your style is impeccable. You always know how to find the right balance between comfort and style. I would gladly sleep in any of these outfits and not worry about who would see me lol! I especially like that red tiered dress! Looks perfect for summer. I hope you have a great weekend and can maybe take a break from worrying about your identity theft problem! xx
