It’s about the time to go a little boho. Coachella is around the corner, summer is approaching and the sun and fresh air is making us feel adventurous and free. This post is inspired by style icons The Olsen Twins who perfected boho vibes to a tee!
Ready for spring?!
When I lived in New York City my favorite time of year was when the seasons changed from winter to spring. There’s no way to describe it, but everyone becomes overwhelmed with a simultaneous smile and it’s really amazing to see.
Here in LA, the change in temperature is not as drastic. We often have summer days in winter, but we’re still captivated by all the beauty spring has to offer. These LA gardens make me happy and when I’m here I feel an overwhelming peace.
It’s time for spring fashion. I love wearing beautiful flowy dresses and gorgeous pastels. The dress I’m wearing is a new purchase from Zara kids – can you believe it? I’m 5’4 so if you’re my size, you’ll probably fit too!
With the time changing last week and the weather feeling like summer in Los Angeles, there’s been a lot of talk about spring fashion. I think it’s a unanimous feeling to love spring, I mean, how can you not? The flowers are in blow and we’re seeing color that we haven’t for months. The sun is shining and inevitably, there are smiles on peoples faces. All of this, changes the way we dress – the colors, the temperature and our mood. We gravitate towards color and softer pastels. I’ll be talking a lot about spring trends but today’s post, I’m talking about spring bags.
It’s something I can definitely improve on – having the perfect spring bag for every occasion or every outfit. I’m gravitating towards softer hues (like this backpack for instance) for my spring bags, which will go with mostly everything because they’re neutrals. Also, I’m letting you all in a little secret! Nordstrom Rack has the most amazing designer bags for a really realistic price. Don’t get me wrong, I love investing in a good bag time and again like this Alexander Wang, but it’s still TOTALLY possible to buy amazing designer quality bags for less then $100 or $200 at Nordys. The bags are all linked on the image, so click-click directly to purchase. Which is your favorite? XX
One of my favorite new trends in fashion is lace…
Lace: it’s feminine and sweet and it’s an easy way to incorporate something delicate into your look. Lace popping up all over the internet in street style and it’s being used in completely unexpected ways. Like for example, a lace skirt with runners? Totally different and absolutely works. A lace skirt with a casual sweatshirt? Maybe my favorite so far. Check out some of my favorites on my Lace Inspiration Pinterest Board.

In every girl’s closet there should be a handful of cozy knit sweaters in neutrals and a variety of ripped jeans..
I hope you’re all having an amazing weekend. I’ve been in New York for the past couple days but lately back in Los Angeles I’ve been stocking up on my knits. I swear, I’d wear cozy sweater and ripped jeans everyday if I could – it’s the simplest, chicest look and gives off a laid back “I’m not trying” vibe.
Today’s edit is perfect for winter, because I love a good winter white. I’m also becoming more and more into silver, rather than gold elements. The two together, winter white and silver, just make me over the moon.
1 // White Loose Turtle Neck Sweater – the easiest outfit this time of year is a good knit sweater, jeans (rips preferably) and a pair of cute flats. Winter white is always a chic option. I don’t think it’s necessary to pay hundreds of dollars on knits, so I’m including this amazing option for only $30. The loose turtlenecks adds an element of chic + coziness at the same time.
2 // Necklace in Crystal - I’m sure you’ve sent these necklaces everywhere but often they range in the hundreds. This one is reasonably priced. I love the edginess of this and I love how it comes to a point at the bottom. I wear this statement necklace often, which is similar, but I really am coveting this one as well.
3 // Vita Fede Silver Bracelet – this is a great investment piece that you can throw on over a watch or layer with other bracelets. We all need a selection of great accessories because we know the low end jewelry doesn’t last.
4 // Ladies Rolex Datejust – I love a good watch and I especially love a good men’s watch for women. The pink is super chic and perfect for Valentine’s Day! More new and used rolex options check out Swiss-Wrist.com.
5 // White Jeans with Rips – jeans are tough. Just when you feel like you have too many, you want more. Do you understand my struggle? If it were up to me, every girl would own a pair of ripped jeans in blue, white and black. They are a vital part of our closet and perfectly paired with a good knit for an easy weekend outfit. Done and done.
6 // Lunch Pail Bag – Forever21 is just on point lately. This bag is definitely a ripoff (sorry!) but for $20 I can mess with this. Coveting it in both colors to pair it with loose pants and an oversized sweater.
7 // Silver Pumps – only $32 dollars if you hurry! Wear them with any winter white look.
8 //Faux Patent Leather Flats – just purchased these yesterday and I’m in love. Only $22.90 – enjoy!
Over-the-knee boots are everything! They look amazing over jeans with a sweater or my favorite look: wearing them with sweater dress. While I do adore the Stewart Weitzman boots I’m seeing on everyone, is it worth $800 dollars? I’ll let you decided. I’ve included an amazing option from Guess (on sale now) that I’m purchasing today. They have a lot of amazing markdowns right now. I love the color grey but I’m definitely in the market for a black pair, too.
Fashion Tip: if you’re going to buy over the knee boots, ensure they are form fitting to your leg and not too bunchy. That lends for a sleeker look overall.

Everyone’s on their fitness plan this time of year so I was excited when Sears reached out to me to partner on their amazing active-wear. Yes, we all gained a couple extra this winter, so we should take comfort in knowing that everyone’s in the same boat, BUT unfortunately we don’t. We’re our worst critics – you and I both know this. So if you don’t have motivation already, buy it, and it will come.
Working out shouldn’t be a chore; it should be something enjoyable. So start with a good outfit to make you feel great. I picked both Everlast pants and the sports bra from Sears – they have a great selection of basics. I always like to add a pop of color with my runners and mesh is my new favorite addition when finding a good workout outfit. I love that it breathes and it’s lightweight for hot days. The Everlast sports bra is super comfortable with a little extra support, which is great for us that are part of the itty bitty titty club. (Sadly, one of the first things to go when we lose weight! ugh)
Lastly, when finding a good routine for working out, just like any other goal in life, make sure it’s attainable so you’re setup for success. I love to dance, so I’ve been starting to go to Hip-hop classes. I also love nature so hiking is my other favorite workout. Chloe and I love Runyan – great people watching. But do what feels right for you, even if it’s a walk with girlfriends. Grab a coffee and have fun walking for 45 minutes catching up about life. You’ll save the calories of happy hour and still get some good girl time in. You’ll probably forget you’re working out, too.
