Congratulations to my friend Timree on her brand new studio opening in Newport Beach! Timree does amazing still life and portrait paintings, custom art, dishes, ornaments, (you name it) and has an arsenal of celebrity cliental.

I haven't seen some of her family since I was 7 years old. It was a great time to catch up and celebrate dreams coming true!

Here I had some fun with a some minor photo retouching. Can you tell spot the differences in the photos below?

Stay True

Not a GAP ad, but I couldn't help doing a little play on this little gap toothed beauty Lindsey Wixon, (a look made popular by Madonna and Vogue cover models like Lara Stone). Maybe she could do a campaign for them! The GAP wanting to revamp their logo into a more modern look realized what a mistake they had made by trying to change without truly understanding the current market and their customer's loyalty to who the GAP customer is.

It is amazing, but not too shocking that avid GAP fans did not like the change to a more modern logo. Banana Republic was able to cross over, but why not GAP? I think because the GAP customer wants consistency of the basics, comfortable, affordable and middle of the road on trend ready to wear. So I guess if you have a gapped tooth grin, maybe a cleft inyour chin or specialize in basic casual wear, stick to who you are and what you know. Lesson learned, GAP is keeping its original and iconic blue square.

Pale and Red for Winter

Proves to be great for photos- love the red POP against the pale skin canvas. However, you will not see me rocking this though I love it due to the year round tan I've been so blessed with!

Tis the season to put start putting away 101 pairs of flip flops and start finding your flats. I LOVE J.Crew ballerina flats year round but especially for fall. Stylish, comfortable, and amazing quality.

A Salut to Facial Hair

Indeed, if I were a man, I would grow the most amazing mustache this month in honor of Movember and to top it off I would rock TOMS special editions.

Patiently Waiting for Fall

Words I never thought would come out of my mouth since I LIVE for Summer and warm weather. However, my recent purchase of Cole Haan boots and toothpick wale stretch cords have me signing a different tune. Every morning I keep waiting for it to be cold enough on a day I am running late and can just pull on my boots, a tee shirt and run out the door. Right now I'm super into loose comfortable tees and side braids; perhaps I'm just channeling my inner equestrian self. I found this Avon vintage gold leaf on Etsy that I just fell in love with!

Prints and Crepe

Loving crepe fabrics, sun washed silk and prints: geometric and floral still going strong; exposed zippers too!

Head Case

I spent what seemed an unnecessary amount of time fidgeting with the shape of this headband until I arrived at the below. I am happy enough to go to bed. Tomorrow I tackle more accessories and 12 more styles. Wish me luck!

California Coastal

CC is not just a style, but truly a lifestyle. Inspired by my friend LoLo and her shared stories of her parent's coastal decorated home and weekend duffy jaunts in the harbor here I am channeling sunshine and sea breeze. OK fine actually I was more so being lazy and wanted something easy to throw on, run errands and could easily slip in and out of at the beach sice I was going surfing later.

Surprisingly, LoLo woke up with the same wardrobe vision and obviously color palette. Effortless, timeless, carefree and ready to make new Yelp review experiences.

Features: Cardigan: J.Crew, Romper: Roxy, Wedges: Steven by Steve Madden, watch: Michael Kors, sunglasses: Quiksilver

Ruffles & Frills

Tutus are not just for ballet. I'm loving them for everyday wear and dress up as well. This young fashion plate is a girl after my my own ballet shoes.

Also loving tutus by Kaiya Eve

Garden Party

So I finally got off Rent the Runway's wait list and found an amazing dress. Funny how it looks so similar to the print I chose for my Garden Party dress. I couldn't resist posting them both!

Perfectly Patent

I never tire of patent leather and in the midst of wedding season I found myself looking for an addition to the shoe collection. One can never have too many patent leather pumps. Loving the classic nude pump to elongate the legs as well as the variation of gladiator styles. Here are some of my favorites without diving into luxury price points.

Franco Sarto: $89

Your Color is Calling

Summer is here and it wants COLOR. Bright colors, neons, and vibrant color are happening now. Pop your color with a printed day dress and nude heels. For a more casual look pair with strappy flats or shoe with a thicker heel.

Reinvent Yourself

"Stay Current", a reminder I hear consistently from mentors, industry professionals and society. And what is current now is bringing back the old classics. While vintage may have never truly gone away, it has resurfaced everywhere and will stay strong particularly while the sun is still shinning. So whether you're dusting off an old pair or searching for new ones, don't forget to grab your shades as you head out the door!

Time Flies

It truly does- I woke up this morning thinking about my week and realized the meetings and due dates for items on Thursday....oh wait it IS Thursday! Oh well one day closer to Friday makes me smile! Keep track of your day and add some bling to your look with an oversized watch.

Hump Day

Yay, we've made it! Despite the craze and panic in our lives, I'm sure a Memorial Day weekend reminder is more than welcomed. Looking forward to the long weekend, aren't you?! Stock up on sunscreen and don't forget your stars and STRIPES!

Spring Envy

Cynthia Vincent wedge platforms: beautiful, comfortable and out of my budget, but she knows this which is why she has launched an affordable footwear line at Target. For $29.99 I will wait for the back orders to fill. That's right, while the weather is not, these shoes are so hot stores can't keep them in stock!

Break Through June Gloom

There are few signs of May grey and June gloom in sunny Southern California, particularly Cardiff where Blake Lively and surf legendary icon Rob Machado shot Vogue's cover story.

Longing for Summer

V-Neck knit dress layered with a long scoop pocket cardigan sweater paired with ankle boots is the perfect statement during the transition between Spring and Summer. Pair with long layered necklaces or bracelets; mix and match.
