I personally do nottt enjoy shooting, and I’m not just saying that to seem “relatable”. It’s not that I hate it as much as its just not the favorite part of my job. I love putting the outfits together and I love how they come out and being able to express myself this way but for some reason I dread shooting. I think it mainly has to do with the fact that I HATE getting ready (also why I’ve gotten into styling) butttt I do have to say when I have a beer in hand and am obsessed with my photographer you can’t help but enjoy it….
With all the attention on the mom jean it only makes sense for there to be a “dad jean” counterpart. And if I’ve ever seen a pair that properly fit the bill it’s these guys. Perfectly pleated, a nice earthy tone, the cuff, the light fabric, everything reminds me of my cute dad in the early part of my life. Before he made decent money and found a liking for nice, custom made things….
A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to be invited on my fam vacay. I say that because I don’t know how old is too old to keep getting invited on these… Anyway every 5 years my dad has to take a 3 month sabbatical for work. Last time we did the whole Paris, Positiono, Almafi Coast, Rome thing before I headed to South Africa for the rest of the summer (most magical summer of my life)….
Inbetween trips and exciting events to document, most of my days are spent at my house in front of my computer. Leaving only to take the mush out on a walk. For reference, I average about 3,000 steps these days if I don’t go on a run. I get easily distracted so I have to have days dedicated to sitting my ass down for computer work with no meetings, events, or plans to steer my attention….
If you follow any bloggers on insta I’m sure you’ve heard today is the start of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. This sale is better than most because the items go on sale at the beginning of the season instead of the end. It’s the perfect opportunity to be thinking ahead and get some deals for the upcoming seasons. I’ll be updating this all month long so keep checking back. XOXO
FYI: right now the sale is only open to Nordstrom card holders so if you don’t have one, get one, or wait until it’s open to everyone on July 21st….
Ya gotta love a good white one piece. So simple and chic. And idk about you but swimsuits are my favorite things to accessorize so I appreciate having somewhat of a blank canvas. I love a funky scarf/sunglass combo so when I don’t have to deal with opposing prints it makes my job way easier. Plus you can throw on your jean shorts and you’ve got an outfit for post beach activities….
Ok call me a freak for taking my dog everywhere I go but trust me you would too considering. When I leave her for a long amount of time she’s a complete dick to me when I get back. She gets really stand off-ish and “forgets” she’s potty trained for a few days. I’m already dreading her drama when I get back from Europe this summer. She basically does anything she can think of to make sure I pay for leaving her behind….
They painted the infamous “pink wall” rainbow for pride month and even though I swore I’d never take a pic in front of the actual most basic thing in LA, I figured this was a good enough excuse . ANYTHING FOR CONTENT. Wait, What? Anyway, I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again, I LOVE WILDFOX’S BODYSUITS. And now they’ve switched it up a bit with this one….
Have I mentioned how much I love these posts? It’s my own little Facebook album of my trips, outfit details included. It’s a way to give you guys a peak into the non-manicured side of my vacations that aren’t always quite insta worthy. Plus they’re so fun for me to look back on; It’s my little diary. This particular one is dedicated to the blogger bachelorette for my good friend Amanda….
Say hello to my current favorite jeans in all the land. They’re AG’s famous ‘Phoebe‘ fit but in this distressed two-tone wash. If you’re not familiar with the Phoebe I suggest you try on a pair next time you have access. I go down a size for a tighter fit but they perfectly cuff your butt and are nice and high waisted; Basically my only criteria for jeans….
