Hi there! 

Isn’t Cinque Terre stunning? Take me back! I wore this gorgeous free people set out to dinner that is right on trend as a two piece and with a ruffle skirt and top. It’s called the “Petal Set” and I got it on sale! Check it out on Free People’s website. I styled it with my Sam Edelman gorgeous bow tie mustard heels from last year, and messy wavy beach hair since we were on the Italian coast and I was feeling mermaid hair! 

Happy Summer and happy summer outfits (my fave time to pick out clothes).

Seeing Stars & Ruffles

Hi there!

I hope everyone is having a great holiday long weekend or at least a day off:). I celebrated at the beach today (see my stories) and took a lot of time off in June to be with my family in Connecticut.  

This is one of my favorite looks right now: the tie back on this gorgeous Celestial collection from Spell Designs (this is the Celestial Mini Dress) is my favorite along with the pleated skirt and ruffle collar. I paired it with my fave Free People star ankle boots and an oldie but goodie Chanel. I’ll be wearing this look into fall because the star pattern and color are so much fun, and I can wear it with a blazer or moto jacket when it gets colder.  

Spell Designs’ boho looks always get it right for me, which makes them one of my all time fave brands. Also I’ve only had one issue with making an exchange because of sizing and their customer service team couldn’t be more accommodating and a dream to work with.  Even though they are an Aussie brand they have a US online store and are carried at many boutiques as well.

On a weekend getaway to my friend's PA lakehouse in my custom The Ave Los Angeles skull & rose chucks, new Express striped ruffle asymmetrical mini skirt,  Free People top, new Vigoss grey suede moto jacket by and my new YSL black medium Kate chain strap purse! 

Hi there!

I think I've already spoken about how much I love this style aesthetic but to reiterate: girly meets rock and roll is my absolute fave! This fall we are seeing ruffles stripes and moto jackets everywhere so naturally I had to style the trends!  

I styled my new Vigoss grey suede moto jacket (by from Nordstrom) with an older cream Free People top, and a new Express asymmetrical striped ruffled mini skirt. I finished the look with my custom chucks from a great store in Los Angeles, CA called The Ave. They are skull and rose Day of the Dead print with graffiti lettered "Lina" on one shoe tongue and "Ballerina" on the other. I love these high tops so much. I also wore my brand new Yves Saint Laurent black medium Kate chain strap bag that I'm just in love with. I love the black on black detail making this a classic yet edgy purse.  

Now that it's cooling down a bit in New York it's fun to layer on the moto jacket and scarf or blazer. Next week I'll highlight the blazer must have for fall!
