Traveling to Europe has been a dream of mine ever since I could remember, and this summer, I had the opportunity to finally go. When traveling in Europe, I wanted to visit all of the many tourist attractions without looking like a tourist (or looking lost for that matter). Meaning, no athleisure and sportswear but chic (and most importantly, comfy) flats, a blazer that takes me from day to night and the perfect black mini to style.
Working in downtown LA has it’s perks – for one, fantastic food options and most importantly, the beauty of the city architecture. Catch me on the corner of Grand and 6th rocking my favorite Citizens of Humanity Jumpsuit.
DTLA lovers, look no further than this hot spot that serves up brunch (+ other daily treats) AND yoga. Yes, it’s true. The Springs has a yoga studio and a wellness center in the back and a kitchen and juice bar in the front. Spacious and not to mention has free parking (which is a rarity anywhere in LA), this space is a gem and the perfect place to grab a book and take a breather in the midst of the bustling city.
As a resolution to travel more this year, I decided to make a quick trip to Seattle for the weekend. Seattle was beautiful and fulfilled every expectation and more and cannot wait to go back. Below are some of the places I visited, stayed and played. For a unique Seattle experience, I highly recommend visiting Sake Nomi and trying a sake flight, Capitol hill hangs at Unicorn (I insist you try the Unicorn Jizz speciality drink, it’s DELICIOUS) and fun and games at the Garage and Flatstick Pub.
It’s no surprise that apart from my general black and white go-to attire, I’m stocked up on the basic essentials. Vintage tee, moto jacket, worn in- denim and the perfect black boots, anyone? As we sift through our closets on the daily while repeatedly saying to ourselves “I have nothing to wear,” we forget that we can make a killer outfit even with pieces on repeat. And as part of my new year resolution: to simplify and destress whenever possible, this keeps to that promise and makes life a whole lot easier.

Traveling down PCH is one of my favorite things to do on a perfect Spring afternoon. From sunset to sundown, Newport Beach is such a beautiful sight to see.

Happy first day of Spring! To start this new season, I took a short trip down to SoHo to the Apartment by the Line in hopes to find some major interior design inspiration. Spring prompts us to not only do some spring cleaning in our homes and apartments but to do a bit of re-design to add a fresh new flavor to our surroundings.
Lusting over everything from their luxurious leather chairs with fur details to their clawfoot tub to their IMPECCABLE walk in closet with nothing but designer duds from Altuzarra, Oliver Peoples & Common Projects and more, it was truly every fashion-savvy girl’s dream.
The Apartment by the Line has most definitely become my favorite conceptual design space and I highly recommend stopping by for a visit if ever in the SoHo area.
On the 1st day of NYFW, I attended the ever so colorful Desigual show. A whirlwind of colors and prints floated down the runway to upbeat tunes on radiant, sprightly models. One model in particular stood out above the rest as she strutted down the runway with unfading confidence. As the new face of the Desigual Campaign, Chantelle Brown-Young who suffers from Vitiligo- a skin pigment disorder, redefined the standards of beauty and encompassing Desigual’s philosophy of “enjoying life and being happy.”
