With June gloom in full effect here in LA, you have no choice but to layer up. The mornings here are very deceitful if you base how you get dressed on the way it looks outside in the morning. So to play it cool and take on all the temperatures throughout the day you need to layer up the right right way.
This month I took a trip of a life time to Phuket, Thailand to visit my brother who has been currently living there for over a year. Being the 1st time traveling outside of the States, I was beyond excited! There was so much to see and do that I filled every day that I was there with activities. Along with taking photos of breathtaking viewpoints I filmed video clips of my journey through Thailand. I visited Phang Nga Bay, Kho Phi Phi and most of Phuket from Patong to Rawai. I felt like I was kicking it in screen savers the whole time. Pictures cannot describe how beautiful this place is in person. I can’t wait to visit South East Asia again and explore more!

When styling outfits basics are a key essential! Starting out with a great fitting pair of jeans. One of my favorite things about denim is that you can wear it anywhere, dress them up or down. I like my denim in solid washes and I prefer the leg to be skinny. My new favorite pair of skinny jeans are “casey” by True Religion jeans because they are the perfect length and fit for my body. When picking out jeans I like to make sure there is at least 6% stretch in my jeans because I like my jeans to be able to move with my body. Too much stretch isn’t good either. Another reason why I love these True Religion jeans is because they don’t stretch out! They only stretch to your body but don’t lose its shape and become baggy like others.
When in doubt a white tee is the perfect top to pair with your jeans no matter what wash they may be. The perfect tee is another essential item to have a part of your wardrobe. Because I’m busty I prefer V-neck tees over crew necks but I wear them both.
The third key piece when styling your jeans is a classic leather moto jacket. Today I’m going for a more neutral pallet. So I’ve paired my white tee with a beige leather jacket. With these key pieces my jeans are perfectly styled. From this foundation I can layer on jewelry or keep it simple with a few rings and a watch. To add another element to my look, layering is the best way to go. I choose to layer a sleeveless long vest underneath my jacket. Staying within the same color pallet this vest instantly dresses up my look. Read more…
Now working full time as a e-commerce assistant stylist I find myself having to re-work my wardrobe. I don’t wear heels as much anymore and I’m finally caving into owning a lot more pairs of sneakers than I could ever imagine. It’s kinda fun shopping for sneakers and finding new ways to work in my wardrobe.
