London with French Connection.

frenchconnectioncover

London is one of my favorite cities- the street style, the hustle & bustle, the proper way of speaking english, the double-decker buses, the bright red phone booths, fish & chips, I mean, how could it not be a favorite?

So I was excited to find out I would be traveling to London with one of my favorite brands, French Connection. I’ve always loved everything that they’ve carried from clothing, shoes to accessories and even house ware. I always end up finding the cutest pieces that are versatile yet fun, like this white sweater I got a couple of months ago.

I did a lot of sightseeing, tons of picture taking and grubbed on too much fish & chips but I felt very British by the time we had to close out our trip which was great. The most exciting part about my trip was getting to hang with the French Connection team, checking out their new fall collection and getting to attend their A/W ’14 Campaign press preview launch party! It was all sorts of fun; with the theme being magic, rabbits, and one of London’s biggest magicians, Troy Von Scheibner.

Here’s a small diary of what my trip looked with French Connection! Hope you enjoy the photos as much as I enjoyed being there!

Special thank you to French Connection for having me! xo

Havaianas S/S ’14 Lookbook

COVER

This whole summer has been so much fun because I’ve been spending it with Havaianas! Excited to share that we have teamed up to shoot their S/S lookbook!

My team and I had so much fun shooting this look book because Havaianas are the quintessential item for my California laid-back style! Between the locations + fun styling, we had the best time collaborating with Havaianas. They’re definitely a staple in my closet!

Here are some of my favorite photos from our photoshoot. It’ll help show you how you can style Havaianas outside of the beach… yes! You can wear them anywhere!

You can read more about it and see the full look book on their site, here!

Thank you Havaianas for allowing me to have fun and be creative! Loved the look book!

Luisaviaroma / Style Lab 2.

Sharing my last look for the Luisaviaroma Firenze4Ever 9th edition Style Lab!

I got to the store a tad bit earlier than my call time (9:30 am) to have extra time to walk the floor and check out the racks and racks full of prints, silks, bold colors and crazy silhouettes. The options were endless and I found myself worried at times that I wouldn’t pick the “right” looks. Thankfully, every single piece hung at the store were beautifully made/designed- which made my styling options easier. Yes!

I definitely went BIG on this dress. It was completely studded and weighed probably more than me. It was heavy. It was beautiful. It was made for me to wear and prance around one of Florence’s most prettiest hotels, Villa Cora.

I added the boots to toughen up the look since I love having a bit of a contrast in my outfits. Glam meets tough for this one.

Hope you guys enjoy the last outfit to complete my Style Labe shoot with my good friends over at Luisaviaroma!

*Special thank you Luisaviaroma, Andrea, Camilla, Kelly, Maria Fernanda and everyone else who made this possible! xo styleluisa5.jpg_effectedluisaviaromaluisaviaromaluisaviaromaluisaviaromaluisaviaromaluisaviaromaluisaviaroma
