Indian Summer Meets Pre-Fall

Summer is coming to an end, and we’re ready for jackets, boots and fall colors. But, with temperatures still high, finding ways to incorporate a fall feel into heat friendly clothes can be a task. See how we styled two pieces, a romper and a maxi, that could easily be worn in the summer, for a more fall look.


Rompers aren’t just meant for the summer. Styling them with a pair of boots and a leather jacket makes them feel appropriate for fall, but still cool enough for warmer weather.


A touch of leather does wonders to make an outfit feel more fall transitional. A fringe bag, in a warm, sandy beige is exactly what this dress needs.


High boots and peep toe booties in suede scream fall. Throwing either of those bad boys on with your summery dresses or rompers warm those looks right up!

I Dream of Top Knots

When you’re a crazy busy woman like me (which, let’s be honest, you all are too) sometimes I just don’t have time to do my hair. But, that doesn’t mean that I don’t want it to look cute and for me to look put together.

Top knots are the way to go. They’re the perfect way to pull together a look and best part, they’re so darn easy to do.

Here are some of my favorites from over the years. Loving the half up top knot, because I get head aches when I wear all of my hair up.

They’re so easy to do, depending on the style you want to go for…

You can gather all of your hair on top of your head and twist your hair down and around for a more polished look.

Scoop the small portion of hair at the crown of your head and twist and wrap down or pull it through and puff it out for two different styles.

You can also go for the rats nest look and ball all your hair up and wrap your hair tie around it all. Sometimes fastening some fly aways with bobby pins is necessary in this case.

Here are some awesome pics from pinterest to further inspire your top knot dreams .



Golden Hour

The air is crisp (at least for Californians).

I grew up in snowy Ohio so this kind of weather actually feels pretty perfect.

Throw a faux fur on over a pair of jeans and boots and its the perfect combination of fashion and fall.

Comfy Cozys’


I can’t just wear regular old sweatpants when I’m feeling like a bum.

I have to wear something that I’m feeling cute in while still be comfy.

These pants are the perfect solution. Love Me Lace Bells available now.

Also any basic tee from Free People because they are sooo soft. We love the Keep Me Tee.

Street Style- Venice

I just love wandering the streets of Venice.

Such cool houses live on the tree lined streets of this perfectly grungy beach town.

Pin Frenzy

I was in a pin frenzy today.

Summer is upon us and I figured we could all use a little inspo.

These were my top pics.

  Pretty much every color, kind and type. It is everything!

My go to brands are:

 Bite (available at Sephora)– So moisturizing that it feels like you’re wearing chapstick! This stuff is all natural. They even claim healthy enough to eat! To make it better, they name their lipsticks after wines. Could it get any better?

Kat Von D— The famously tattooed artist has created a full line of cosmetics, but her lipsticks are the true stars of the line. The colors are bold and lasting.

Nars— Can’t really get enough of any of their cosmetic line (their bronzers and blushes are pricey, but well worth it). I’m in love with the Matte Lip Pencils.

I know it probably sounds funny, but I just love the stuff. There is something about wearing fabulous undergarments that just puts a little extra pep in my step. And we can’t forget about sleepwear. Nighties, matching top and shorts sets, etc. I just could shop till I drop!

For me it’s pretty much Kevin Murphy all the way. I have a friend that works for the Australian Stylist and business owner and she’s the one that got me hooked. I use the Luxury Wash and Rinse set, which is for coarse, color-treated hair (like mine). My favorite two products are the Shimmer.Shine which repairs hair and makes it gorgeously shiny! (If gorgeously isn’t a word, then I’m making it one!) And the Hair.Resort.Spray which gives those beachy waves that all us gals love!

I’m definitely a girly girl, as you can probably tell by reading this post. One thing I do indulge in, that is of the utmost girly are mani-pedis. Every 2 weeks like clockwork. I honestly don’t feel right without them. Always gel for my mani. I don’t really see the point of regular polish. I make jewels for a living, so I need my nails to be tough to withstand the wear and tear. And pedis just because no one wants to see how gross my feet can get without them!
