COMFY BLUES



Being comfortable is always my number one priority, especially on the weekends. My weekends are spent on-the-go, whether it'd be meeting up with friends for a bite (okay, many bites) or running tedious errands around town. I was feeling a bit under the weather on this particular day and my trick for those "blah" days is to wear comfortable clothing, but accessorize with killer pieces so I don't look the way I feel. 

Thanks to Maurice's for introducing me to their denim jeggings. I'm always down to give new denim brands a test drive and even more excited when I actually love the product. These have quickly become my go-to pair of comfy denim jeans. My favorite part? They have a great amount of stretch to avoid those "I-gotta-unbutton-my-pants-because-I-ate-too-much" moments - which I experience all too often.

LEAF PRINT

TOPSHOP DRESS, ZARA SANDALS [SIMILAR HERE AND HERE], PROENZA SCHOULER 'PS11' BAG

Once in a while, I'll take a departure from the norm and venture towards something that's unexpected of me. I instantly fell in love with the print and silhouette of this dress and it ended up being perfect number to wear to an outdoor brunch with the girls. I'm still a little surprised to see this hanging in my closet, in a sea of solids and darker colors, but maybe it's the start of a new era or maybe it was just an impulse purchase.

SURPLUS JACKET


There's a good 2 months left of summer weather in LA, but I've already started stocking up on jackets and coats in anticipation for my favorite season. It's hard not to when my favorite stores are basically shoving it in my closet. Maybe it's FOMO (fear of missing out) or in this case - FOSO (fear of selling out)... Yes, the fear is real. At any rate, my new surplus jacket from Urban Outfitters is lightweight enough to fit in for summer dressing, but I can't wait to style it with layers once the temperatures drop. Happy Monday! xo

LIVE IN LEVI’S®

 
I’d like to think of myself as a denim connoisseur – my closet breathes it. My style would be best described as laidback, casual and chic, all inspired by the west coast lifestyle. Denim plays a huge role in that and I find myself wearing it in some capacity almost every single day – jeans, shorts, jackets, etc. 


My love affair with jeans started back in junior high with my first name brand pair, made by Levi’s®. I remember that moment vividly as it also happened to be the first time I was allowed to go to the mall with friends (sans parental supervision). You can only imagine how ecstatic I was to feel like a grown up at age 12. The flare leg style (they were all the rage back then) that I tried on fit to perfection, unlike any other jeans I had previously owned. As cliché as it may sound, I literally Live in Levi’s® and wore them to shreds.


My style has gone through many transformations since my junior high days, from my tomboy days to strictly wearing earthtones, and everything in between. The one thing that remained constant during my self-discovery period was a great-fitting pair of Levi’s®. Nowadays, my personal style skews towards simple, but my work & social schedule is as hectic as ever. I can always count on my Levi’s® Skinny Jeans no matter what. The beauty of denim is that it serves as a blank canvas and makes getting dressed in the mornings and transitioning into the evening easy and effortless. The possibilities are endless; pairing my Levi’s with a tshirt, blazer, and heels to the office, a loose-tank and sandals to run errands or a flowy blouse and heels for dinner.
