classics


Striped mockneck top, Missguided. Blue high rise skinny pants, Gap. Silver metallic flats, Forever 21. Pink tasseled crossbody purse, Zara. Teardrop stud earrings and watch, Kate Spade.

I guess I've been loving stripes a little too much lately; this is the third outfit in a row I'm posting that features stripes! Can you blame me? The print is just so wearable and timeless. Jeans and a striped tee can be a boring combo sometimes (though I would say these are more of a chino pant than a jean), but some fun silver flats keep the look fresh...fizzle.

scallops and stripes


A striped tee is one of the simplest things but the classic Parisian vibe is always so chic. They can easily feel a bit boring though, so I made sure to style it with some fun, light pieces: my cute little new pink crossbody from Zara and some scallop-hemmed denim shorts. And since we are officially heading into spring today, I wore some woven sandal booties! So great for festival season, too. I'm also really into this sweet lilacish-pink polish right now: Essie's French Affair.

spring forward


Striped two-piece set, Boohoo. Collin camera bag, Rebecca Minkoff. Straw floppy hat, Urban Outfitters.

With the extra hour of sunshine this past weekend, my boyfriend and I decided to hit the beach and headed out to Malibu Lagoon (which is right next to one of my favorite restaurants, Malibu Farm). Though it's not technically spring yet, it certainly feels like it here in Los Angeles. It's still a bit too chilly for laying out in a bikini, but the weather was perfect for flying our kite. The last time we tried to fly it, there wasn't enough wind which led to a lot of frustration. But this day was a breeze. Literally ;). I decided to go for a nautical vibe and wore a striped two-piece from Boohoo. I'm totally over rompers and how difficult they are to use the restroom in. If given a choice, always go with the two-piece!

gray day


I'll skip any allusions to 50 Shades. I'm only wearing two here. Still, it's a pretty gloomy color palette by my standards so I had to wear a bright bag. It's kinda like the sunshine coming out after the rain, ya know? The resulting look is rather schoolgirlish but I don't mind owning it because I was always teased for being a schoolgirl growing up. Anyways, there is nothing schoolgirlish about the cutout on that top!

print mix


A printed coat can be a statement all on its own but I decided to add a little more interest by pairing it with another print. This floral skort is such a fun piece from Missguided. I wasn't sure how I felt about skorts when they first experienced a resurgence last season; the Zara envelope one in particular that was knocked off so much felt super played out. Missguided has a ton of skorts, some of which are constructed a little more uniquely. These are more like shorts but with some fun flaps added on, and super flattering in my opinion. Even better is the fact that I got it on sale! Speaking of which, Missguided is having another big sale with an extra 40% off marked prices (use code 'EXTRA40')! I already picked up a couple of things I can't wait to show off soon.

White sleeveless button up, Nasty Gal. Floral-printed skort, Missguided (sold out, similar here). Black and white plaid coat, Sheinside. Tote bag, MICHAEL Michael Kors. Red d'Orsay flats, Chinese Laundry.

creme fraiche


A color palette of creams and nudes is always one of my favorite looks. It's so easy, and no matter what the pieces, the result is so chic, right? I've been seeing more and more people wearing pastel tones in the winter time, and it's one of my favorite trends. Makes a lot of sense, because pastels look so nice against a snowy backdrop (although we don't get any of that nonsense here unfortunately). I really love how the yellow strap from my Rebecca Minkoff camera bag lends a bright touch of color.
