Simplified Intentions

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.

Just wrapped up my second week here at Helmut Lang and I couldn’t be more thrilled to be a part of this team. The office is filled with an abundance of black, white and minimalist outfits with plush angora knits with some great leather action under over sized and billowing tops and tees. These women truly know the meaning of style with edge, durability and practicality!

BOYFRIEND JEANS

With the boyfriend jean trend still going strong, I had to snag the slouchiest pair I could possibly find. My all time favorite is this pair in particular from Zara. Perfectly snug at the waist and thoroughly baggy at the thighs, I’m able to sport these bad boys with confidence…not giving a bystander an all access view on my unmentionables, if you know what I mean!  Working almost everyday makes you yearn for comfortable anythings and these are the cherry on top on completing my off-duty look.

FAUX FUR FRENZY

Zara Faux Leopard Coat / Zara Cropped Tee / UO Midi Skirt / Steve Madden Booties

Working in fast fashion, I see styles come and go in a matter of days… or so it seems. When a hot commodity comes through, I have to get my hands on it immediately; this particular item at hand was Zara’s faux fur leopard coat. Paired with a black cropped shirt and a knee length skirt, black on black allowed for the coat to transcend the basics and not to mention keeping cozy in this brisk LA weather change!

STREET CHIC

For Spring 2013, Baseball caps and black and white are everywhere! Sporting my black and white Zara heels & The Hundreds cap, I was able to rock a sporty- street chic ensemble in the heart of LA. Even more than keeping up with the current trends, I can always count on my worn-out black jeans, a thrifted top and a long coat to create a well-put together, simplistic look. Simple is key… I always say!
