CAMOUFLAGED


A airy, breezy tank dress was the perfect dress to change into after a hike that left me hot and sweaty. Designed as part of a collab between UO and Della, a women-owned, women-run, LA-based business that works directly with communities in West Africa. I love that everything is handcrafted, which makes it all the more special. Definitely check out the collection, you won't feel so guilty for shopping when you know it helps a greater cause. Happy Friday! xo

STAR SPANGLED


While brunching with my girl Sarah, (whom I don't see often enough), we planned a spontaneous road trip up the California coast right then and there with travel accommodations and all. I think our separate anxiety got the best of us. Destination? Big Sur. On the itinerary? Nothing in particular, yet we somehow managed to wear ourselves out every single day. Being that it was July 4th, stripes, stars and donning red/white/blue was the only way to dress. More details on the trip to come! xo

ON THE GO


With what seems like longer days and more sunlight, it's inevitable to not be out and about all day & night. If you follow me on Instagram, you would've seen me lugging this giant black tote around town. I'm finally unveiling the mystery of its contents... my essentials to get me from a long day at the office to late afternoon shenanigans around town to dinner with friends. 

A smaller purse lives within the large tote for evenings out. A pair of flats and heels because the day usually starts with one and ends with the other. Face powder, lipstick, dry shampoo and perfume for touch ups. Bracelets to dress up any look. A chocolate bar and Bottled Starbucks® Iced Coffee for an instant burst of energy. 

Bottled Starbucks® Iced Coffee beverages are the perfect blend of premium Starbucks coffee and 2 percent milk. Available in four delicious offerings: Coffee + Milk, Low Calorie Coffee + Milk, Vanilla, and Caramel, Bottled Starbucks® Iced Coffee ready-to-drink beverages are the perfect on-the-go refreshment to get you through the daily commute, big projects such as spring cleaning, or an exciting road trip with friends. Look for it at major grocery and convenience stores, available nationwide.

SUMMER SANDALS


My go-to sandals of the season when I'm looking for extra height minus the discomfort of heels. Plus, the skin tone hue elongates the legs & who doesn't want that? The bad news... these sandals are from a couple seasons ago... I know, such a tease right?
