Easy Breezy



dress; Brandy Melville / shoes; Donald & Lisa Signature

I'm not gonna lie, for the past week and a half  I've pretty much been rotating between 3 Brandy Melville dresses. They're perfect for days when you just want to throw something on and go. One of my favorite things about summer; everything should be easy breezy. Same goes for makeup! I've been keeping it light with just a bit of blush, skipping eyeshadow & adding pops of color on the lips.

Modern Design








The newest addition to my jewelry collection is this faceted wide tungsten ring by Modern Design. I love how chic and simple this design is & the facets create a pretty light reflecting effect that creates a subtle sparkle! When the modern design team explained that all their designs are manufactured in "comfort fit" I was a little curious how it could be, until I tried it on. The inside shank of the ring is rounded off creating a smooth feeling for your finger and no pinch! It's so comfortable I could sleep with it on. Head this way and check out their product.

mag pi
















mag·pie  

/ˈmagˌpī/
Noun
  1. A long-tailed crow with boldly marked plumage and a raucous voice. Five genera and several species include the black-and-white black-bil...
  2. Used in similes or comparisons to refer to a person who collects things, esp. things of little value, or a person who chatters idly.

I had a chance to visit a friends new store Mag Pi in Studio City & words can't describe how inspiring it was! Vintage home goods restored, Wall art, African baubles, sandals made in Greece, stunning coffee table books, tapestry printed towels, chic cozy cashmeres, handmade espadrilles, and wicker totes. Every piece was full of culture and had a story. The price points are also amazing. I love the fact that you can walk in with 10 dollars and be able to find something special. If you are looking for a gift, something unique for your home or even a special something for yourself I highly recommend stopping by!

White Wash




Top & Shorts; Zara / Shoes & bag; Donald & Lisa Signature / Tassle Bracelet & Necklace; Henri Bendel / Wrap Bracelet; Chan luu 

An all white ensemble & minimal makeup makes a perfect backdrop to some of my favorite accessories. I'm captivated by delicate baubles and I really don't mind when it comes to mixing golds and silvers. These Donald & Lisa Signature monk straps are one of my own designs. Clean white wash soles mixed with exotic python prints secure a spot on my list of top 5 spring staples.

I'm so excited to finally post my NYC photodiary. Although the trip mostly consisted of work it made all the difference to pause for a bit each day, take in the fresh Manhattan air and the gorgeous Central Park view our office has to offer. It's the little things that make the best memories. For more photos from my trip follow my instagram
