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.

Holiday Joy.

I’m excited to team up with American Eagle for the second time, (the first time was for their back to school campaign last year which included a commercial!). This time, I’ve team up with them to share my favorite ae holiday picks + style a look for a holiday get together!

I love pairing different textures all at once and since party month is here, what better way than to add a little holiday fun than with sequin, tweed & faux fur. Nothings beats sequins!

Totally diggin’ this chic-muted palette btw… what are you wearing to your next holiday party/get together? Share!

Summer Wishlist.


Summer Wishlist: Neutrals by jujubaby28 featuring a bikini swimwear


Since summer is one of my favorite seasons- aside from fall- I thought putting a summer wish list 
for you guys on Polyore would be both fun and helpful ( helpful for those of you who have asked me 
“what should I pack for vacation?” or “what should I buy for summer”…etc. )
I know the whole neon/bright color thing was extremely on trend this season, but for me, I think
buying earthtones/warm/neutral colors will benefit you down the line more than buying trendy pieces
with bold/neon colors. For one, it’s easier to mix and match with your existing wardrobe
and two, it looks more effortless. 


Tips: 
-Buy a chambray/denim button up to wear over your bathing suit instead of a cover-up….
Tie a knot for a fun, sexy look with cut off shorts! Try this one, or this one.
- A two piece strapless bathing suit will get you an even tan and motivate you to work on that tummy! 
A pretty floral print is always a go-to for me because you can mix it with a solid
 bottom or vice versa. Try this floral suit or this one.
-  A Panama hat is such a key item for summer! It’s refreshing and makes all your summer looks
 look thamuch more put together; wear it with your bathing suit or with your day outfit! 
Try this one here or this one.
- Strappy leather sandals are perfect for all summer wear- skinnys, dresses, shorts, skirts. 
Relax your feet for summer! 
Try these or these.
- Simple jewelry; stacked up thin rings and leather collars are perfect for layering. 


What does your summer wish list look like?
