Cami-sold

Julianne Samantha Camisole, Topshop Strappy V-Neck Cami, Anthropologie Laced Silk Cami

     I'm sold on wearing camisoles as outerwear. The strappy tanks are supposed to be worn to bed, but I'm all for wearing the feminine pieces during the day. Think of it as a sexier version of the daytime pajama trend from a couple seasons ago. 
     Unsure how to style a cami? For the last few days of warm summer weather, look to Rosie Huntington-Whiteley for inspiration. Incorporate a light pink camisole into a monochrome look by pairing it with coordinating trousers and pumps. Once the cooler Fall weather kicks in, a silky cami would look adorable styled with a cozy cashmere sweater, skinny jeans, and leather boots

     Packing for college has been exciting, scary and everything in-betweenWhile I may get confused over Twin XL bedding and mini fridges, the only thing I'm certain about packing is my clothing staples. From the perfect scoop neck tee and pair of skinny jeans to classic accessories like ballet flats and tortoise shell sunglasses, I know these pieces will be staples in my new wardrobe at Barnard.

The Golden Afternoon

Topshop Peplum Cami & Scalloped Skirt, Tibi Simona Jaquard Top & Skirt

     The harmonizing flowers in Disney's Alice in Wonderland, from the red rose to the lazy daisy, have enchanted me since childhood. In the movie, the blooms in tune think that Alice is a flower herself, mistaking her legs for stems and petticoat for petals. This got me thinking about how I'd style my own blossoming outfit. To get a flower power look, I'd sport a pastel green skirt to resemble a stem and a peplum top to mimic petals.

The Butterfly Effect

Red Valentino Skirt, Isabel Marant Skinny Jeans, Jennifer Zeuner Earrings & Necklace

     Visiting a magical butterfly garden on my trip to Santa Barbara reminded me how fond I am of the fluttering creatures.What I love even more than the insects themselves is their beautiful depiction in Damien Hirst's artwork. For years Hirst has made an array of butterfly paintings, from simple colored canvases to busy kaleidoscope pieces.
     In addition to art, butterflies are seen often in fashion, from printed fabrics to simple embroideries to dainty jewelry charms. They add girly, fantastical elements to any outfit, and are absolutely perfect for summer!

P.S. If you ever dine at Cecconi's in West Hollywood, be sure to peek into their private room… They have a stunning, heart-shaped butterfly painting by Hirst!

The New Classic


     I'm ecstatic to team up with Warby Parker to announce the launch of their new line! Named after the morning star that comes out after sunset and before sunrise, the Beacon Collection is a series of specs inspired by late night adventures that last until sunrise. One would think that frames meant to be worn 24/7 would look super classic, however these shades are far from that. Each pair has a unique silhouette. For example, the oversized frames and angled brow of the Nancy (my personal fave) make the sunglasses more distinctive than a typical round frame. I absolutely love the idea of wearing an unexpected shape day-to-day to redefine classic eyewear.
