Weekend Gear

I love sweater dresses for all-day lounging purposes, and everything in between. It's a good casual piece for transitional weather before it starts to get way too cold and you need to live in pants (and maybe some leather and fur.) I'm also a major sneaker person and can sometimes live in them, since Converse pair with pretty much everything. These high tops are fun because

Au Naturel

Don't forget to give your body that extra love it always deserves--and especially when the weather starts to get cold! Skincare should be high on your radar to always stay hydrated, moisturized and glowing. The beauty world can be slightly overwhelming sometimes, as trends emerge quickly (charcoal, sheet masks!) and there's an endless amount to choose from. Here's a good

Keeping Cozy

By now, I'm sure everyone has flipped their wardrobes and dusted off the warmer winter pieces, in place of hiding our summer pieces. I've always had a thing for camel coats (maybe along with the rest of everyone else?), so I'm excited to bring this Pinko one out to play. Anyways, I'm always excited for sweater weather--until it actually gets freezing, because that's just no fun.

Mini Shades

All the Rage

Sunglasses have their phases too. One day, it's all about the reflective mirrored lens, the next it's oversized, and now we're riding back a few decades in time and going for all things micro. The touch of old school vintage is fun, though it may feel a bit intimidating to delve into this trend right away, since we're not used to having sunglasses just cover our eyeballs and not much else these days. Some are smaller than others,

Mini Belting

Fanny Pack 2.0

So, the belt bag is here and you might kind of need it. Hello, convenience! And everything else. Hands-free and ready to roam with a little bit of Gucci (or whatever) at the waist isn't the worst thing ever. It's a fun trend, and it makes you think twice about what "essentials" to pack for day to day living. Sometimes, only lip balm, a mini wallet, your phone and keys make the cut. Here are a few ways to wear it,

A new chapter…

I am usually a very private person and rarely speak about my family on social media but today marks a milestone for my family, and I couldn’t be happier :) 60 years ago, my grandpa -along with his 2 brothers- founded the French electrical concept store Darty.

Playing Dress Up

Or Not

How often do you throw on something incredibly playful and just leave the house feeling a little giddy because you're headed to a theme party and anything goes? I guess just every Halloween. Therefore, I was excited to have the ultimate excuse to purchase a bright blue faux fur jacket from Urban Outfitters. Though in reality, I can totally get away with wearing

All things SPF, etc.

Getting a glowing summer bronze is great and all, but let's do so with SPF infused products so we're getting some color while not damaging our skin. Whether it's straight SPF for the face to head to the beach, or one with a hint of color for daily life, there's a few options that

à la Zara

Since we already know Zara is basically the one stop shop for all seasons, there's no need to delve into too many specifics, but I did find this top, pants and bag there and had a really easy time getting dressed this morning! I also have this thing for straw bags, whether they're flea market or Etsy finds, or from any boutique, they're just such an easy

Rooftop Life

Rosé weather is here, which naturally means you are seeking a rooftop to lounge and sip it from. With a prolonged winter and practically no spring, let's just call this summer and start the rooftop rotation.  Gather your tinted SPF, shades, straw bag and chapstick, and head to the following places:

Hello, Red!

I found this top lingering around the endless world that is Topshop, and it was an instant moment of scored--you're mine. I love a good bright red, and this shade felt kind of perfect. Ruffles and red paired with some simple denim made for an easy day of summer hang outs. Might work in some white denim into the mix with this top again shortly. Anyways, good day

Instant Summer

3, 2, 1...

Go. There are a few things in life that scream instant summer (hello, crochet top and flamingo pool float), and it's kind of that time, so let's all get on board as we summon this so called sunshine. Whether you're strolling around your own city, having some pool time, or getting out of town, there's always need for a little summer dress, a cool pair of shades, and a

 The Summer Effect

Back in London and was definitely feeling all things green today. Mercedes Salazar always works wonders in the statement jewelry department, so any time I can get my hands on a funky pair, it's a no brainer. Then obviously Zara for anything needed for all seasons at all times, and I loved this simple little off the shoulder

Dessert Revelations

It's summer and ice cold everything should always be in arm's reach. Okay, maybe this leans more towards iced lattes and matcha frozen yogurts than pints of cookie dough ice cream, but we're getting somewhere. Hello, popsicles! Seriously, these are underrated and deserve to have some time to shine outside of a freezer

Wrap dresses & espadrilles

a la French

Espadrilles have the ability to instantly make any look appear vacation-ready. And wrap dresses have this ease about them; you can just throw them on and go with the flow. No fuss. And then there's the combo! The joy of pairing wrap dresses with espadrilles that truly indicates
