For this weeks The Staple, we are focusing on all cool cross body bags! I’m a bag kinda girl, big time!, so I try to have an array of different style bags for my collection. It’s the one thing that I really do obsess over and try to save up money for. I usually lean towards big bags to dump my whole life in them, but I have about 5 great cross body bags that always save me when I want to be on the-go! Cross body bags are my ideal kinda bag because if you’re a busy girl like me, always running around, carrying a bunch of things, traveling, then you need a hands-free bag to help facilitate your day. Crossbody bags are perfect for that!

I try to always get neutral colors so that it’s more versatile so I stick to black, brown, cream and salmon colors! Find your perfect cross body bag and have fun shopping hands-free of a bag!

Summer Lovin’.

shopsjcover SUMMER. I love summer. Sadly, it’s almost coming to an end and while we still have blue skies, sunshine, palm trees and frozen popsicles, what better way to end summer than by wearing one of our cute SJ tees from our S/S collection! Was going through my photos and came across these different ones from our look book and made me reminisce about the beginning of summer. From beach dates to bike rides under palm trees to the beginning process of designing this collection, it has been one heck of a summer. Now all I have are awesome memories with loved ones, photos and one of my favorite collections that we’ve designed to date. Take a bit of summer with you with one of our tees to remind you what this summer was like for you especially because it’s almost over. Shop some of our faves tees here… Plus, the first 100 orders, will receive a cute little gift!! xo shopsj.jpg_effected shopsj4.jpg_effected shopsj10 shopsj6.jpg_effected  shopsj11shopsj14.jpg_effectedshopsj13shopsj15.jpg_effected

London Girl.

Taking you back a few weeks back when I was visiting London with the lovely French Connection team.

This was my first time experiencing nice weather in London, it was hot & sunny, so I was ecstatic to wear short shorts and floral tops to explore the city- the kinda look I’m used to wearing because of LA. I usually overpack because you never know but was extremely proud of myself for packing rather light on this trip.  It was too light that I forgot to pack an extra pair of shorts. I figured that whatever I forgot to pack, I can always just buy, especially when it’s a big city like London because the shopping is insanely good. That was a good reason to do a little shopping. We hit up Oxford Street, Carnaby Street, Regent Street, Kings Road and Notting Hill. Definitely picked up so great buys!
