Meow.

Last week, we moved into our new office, insert happy emojis here. It almost feels like a fresh new start and vibe which I can’t help but feel re-energized from because I have some exciting things planned for the blog + brand.

One of my easy breezy looks from last week consisted of classic pieces to get me through a day of meetings, moving things/furniture around the office and walking the new neighborhood in hopes of getting acquainted with new coffee shops, restaurants and shops. These flats came in handy!

A nice silky button up blouse always does the trick to get me through a long day. I splurged a bit on these cat flats that have been all over the internet because well, who doesn’t need them in their wardrobe?

Levi’s and Chanel always go hand in hand. I know, it totally looks like summer in LA by the way I’m dressed but I’m trying to take advantage of the heat because the temperature is slowly cooling down. Fall makes me happy, but not really, because I love the warmer weather!

Never Stop Dreaming.

neverstopdreaming

NEVER STOP DREAMING. yes, that’s what I always preach, but it’s true. No matter what you want to do with your life or how big or small your dream is, never stop dreaming + believing.

My goal for this blog and for the product we make is to always inspire you to follow your dreams. It’s something we tend to put in the back of our minds because sometimes we are too scared to go out and do what we want.

From my experience, I’ve learned to put myself out there and do things I’ve always dreamt of. The worst that could happen is 1 of a couple things: 1) I fail, but what is success without failure? 2)  It’s not what I thought it would be, but then I can just come up with a plan B. or 3) I keep trying and trying until what I’ve always dreamt of feels right. I’d rather know I attempted to follow my dreams and work towards it than always wonder, “what if?.”

Anyway, now onto the fashuuuun! Here, I bring you one of those tees that get you feeling inspired. Our new ‘Never Stop Dreaming‘ tee is a tee I had in mind to help motivate all of us to keep our dreams alive!

We shot this in the desert for our lookbook and it was one of my favorite tees + looks! Check out the tee plus many other new styles, HERE!

Hope you enjoy! x

Boot Season!

CHLOÉ Studded Susanna boots

So since fall is here, it’s finally time to pull out your favorite boots and layer up- yay!! I got too excited for it that I packed of one of my favorite pairs to San Diego to try and get in the spirit. Unfortunately, the weather in Los Angeles is still beaming at close to 100 degrees making it very difficult and not fun, to enjoy the fall season. Tear, tear. (Side note: I get many comments/emails regarding posting more “fall/winter” looks for you guys experiencing the real colder weather for inspiration…but it makes it very difficult for me to when it feels like a sauna outside, it’s unbearable! I promise as soon as the temperature drops, I’ll post more fall/winter looks on the blog!)

Even though it still feels like the beginning of summer here in LA, I’m not letting it stop me from preparing for when the temperature cools down enough to wear chunky knits, scarfs, coats and of course boots. I’ve learned to not fall into the whole trend scene when it comes to certain pieces, but as I get older, it really is more about quality over quantity. Before I would just buy, buy, buy and wasn’t really concern about the quality, so I obviously just had a bunch of stuff that really wasn’t worth it. Now, I really scout for the perfect piece, bag, jacket, jewelry, or boots. I really do save money to splurge on the ‘right’ item because I know in the long run, I’ll have it for years to come.

But, I do know some of us can’t splurge because of other priorities, which is completely fine, but I think it’s all about being a smart shopper. Look for deals online, buy on sites like ebay for that designer item you’ve been eyeing, keep track of sales, but most importantly, whatever you buy whether its expensive or not, make sure you’re buying it because it’s a piece that will complement your wardrobe for years to come not just for a couple of months. Always think of quality over quantity, no matter the price.

I splurged a little… well, more like I got lucky, with these Chloé Susanna boots last year when I scored them for almost half the price on a sale! YES! I love the studded details and buckle straps that give it a tough look but the color makes it a bit more feminine and easier to transition from fall to spring. Eventhough the weather is still not fall appropriate, I’m making a wishlist of boots that I’m considering to splurge on for when it finally arrives in LA. I’m thinking a pair of knee-high boots to wear with  flowy dresses with chunky knits or black, buckle strap boots to replace my Balenciaga ones!

Any boots you guys are eyeing for this season or any classic ones? Share! I always want to know what other people are into!

Here are some cool options, both new and classic:
