Summer in Winter.

summerinwinter7

I’ve always said that no matter where my next adventure is, LA always feels like home. One of the main reasons why I don’t see myself (although I’m completely open to the idea of living in Paris/Barcelona/New York! Heck yes!) living anywhere else is partly because LA has, hands down, the best weather. Right now, it feels like summer in winter and I’m not mad at that.

Sometimes I want to experience real fall or winter where I can dress accordingly and layer up, but at the end of the day I much rather be in a striped tee, bare legs and sandals.

Since it’s been feeling a lot like summer on my side, I’ve been on a flower and fruit craze. I sit outside my office in this cute wooden chair x table combo, take in the rays, eat fruit and work the day away! It’s the easiest way to get inspired.

Yesterday was the perfect example of that. How you you work and stay inspired during the winter?

I always have fresh flowers in the office; a trip to the farmer’s market or flower mart is one of my favorite things to do once or twice a week!

Strawberries are my favorite fruit… smoothies, desserts, or just by themselves. Nom.

Classic 2.55

CLASSICCOVER

I’ve always said less is more and when all fails, you can’t ever, ever go wrong with a crisp white button up shirt. It’s classic!

I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect white button up, but was always out of luck. Recently, I came across this inexpensive one which had everything I was looking for: boxy fit, oversized, no pocket, and long length. Can we say major score?

A white button up shirt is on my top 10 staple items you need in your wardrobe! (I gotta give you guys my list… will work on that post soon!)

I wanted a classic look so pairing it with ripped skinny jeans, a touch of leopard and an iconic 2.55, completed the look.classic11.jpg_effectedclassic12.jpg_effected classic9.jpg_effected classic6.jpg_effected classic1.jpg_effectedclassic5.jpg_effected classic8.jpg_effectedclassic2.jpg_effected
