Everytime I can get my hands on a pair of cool sneakers, count me in. Just got these awesome Vans x Madewell paisley slip-ons yesterday and I couldn’t be more excited.

I mean, I’m a huge fan of Madewell. I’m a huge fan of Vans. It was a no brainer that these would be my ultimate summer sneakers! Duh!

I’m imagining cool silky culottes with a tank and these babies, or maybe, a denim dress?Stay tuned to see how I style them.

Layered Up.

Another look from my lovely trip to Paris! On this day, we decided to visit the Basilica of the Sacred Heart of Paris which is in the highest point of the city! It was a little journey to get there, but it was well worth the hills and all the walking once we got to the top because the view was incredible. The town which is called, Montmartre, was one of my favorite towns to visit on this trip. It was a charming little town filled with restaurants cafes and so many people just hanging out.

I got the goosebumps a couple of times because it felt a bit surreal to know that a few of my favorite artists like, Picasso, Monet, Van Gogh and Mondrian (to name a few), worked out of their studios in Montmartre! So cool! It definitely felt like a little town full of artists. Highly recommend taking a little day trip to Montmartre!

The weather turned out to be quite nice this day but I still layered up a bit just in case it got chilly during the evening. I scored this awesome Maje leather jacket in Paris at their Maje discounted stores.. ugh, wish they had those in the states! I paired it with my all-time favorite fanny back (i know, i know… you’re thinking fanny pack? really?) … well YES! I love them and they are completely convenient when you’re traveling, I swear. Especially when you’re sightseeing, the last thing I want to worry about it is lugging around a huge handbag! That’s not fun.

Anyway, hope you guys enjoy this layered look! Remember to keep it simple with basics!

Oh and thank you guys for cheering me on about my last post. I will keep going strong thanks to you guys! xxx

Orange Love.

Bonjour! Taking you back to last month when I went to Paris and had the best time of my life! Seems like so long ago and I feel a bit weird posting these photos but I still have several photos from Paris to share with you so lets start with this cozy and bold look.

Since we stayed at our close friends Betty (which btw, she just relaunched her new site today!! yay!) and Mathieu’s flat, it was like closet paradise because Betty has the most insane closet filled with vintage, designer, unique pieces, sneakers, handbags, etc! I didn’t pack that many coats for Paris so I was fortunate to raid Betty’s closet! Eeek!

I immediately went for this amazing bright orange faux fur coat because I knew I wanted to stand out against the Eiffel Tower. It kept me warm and I felt uber cool in it too. Nothing seemed more perfect than spending time with my close friends IN Paris and wearing an awesome faux fur coat that stood out! I took a box of macarons to see the Eiffel Tower because well… it was fitting.

Make sure to check back in everyday this week for a new look and new photos! I’m finally back in LA and in the groove of things so I won’t go days without blogging anymore! It’s been hard because of my traveling and I’ll also be honest… I’ve been feeling really uninspired with blogging. It’s been hard to get excited about posting, not sure the real reason behind it but I guess it was just a little slump I was going through. I feel refreshed again and ready to go especially after attending the rStyle conference in Dallas this past weekend! So be ready!  Thanks for sticking around, it means the world!
