I’m really not sure what could be better than a mod city in the desert. I’m still kind of in awe that it even exists. The bold lines of all of the mid century architecture made me want to wear my two tone DVF dress. The dress already has so much great texture with the leather top that I kept it super simple – no jewelry needed!

I’ve gotta say, I have a thing for citrus. When I saw these photographs by Julie Lee on Instagram (@julieskitchen), I was immediately in love.
Speaking of citrus, I recently bought this shirt. I knew it had to be mine as soon as I saw it. I’ve also been wanting to try this recipe. Looks good, huh?

I’m madly in love with the various prints and patterns that I’ve seen make a presence on the runways this past week. From Moroccan inspired prints to graphic patterns with edge, I’ve been drooling quite a bit. Here are my top picks:
J.Crew - I’ll take that sweatshirt and jacket right now please
Jonathan Simkhai - big glasses + fancy graphic tee + flared skirt = I want to wear this every day of my life
3.1 Phillip Lim - simple layers and smart color & pattern combo
Karen Walker - allow pattern and color to pop by surrounding it with neutrals
What have been some of your favorite collections?

Remember when I collaborated with Tien and Elsa of Say Hello Max for this post? Well, there’s more. So get ready.
My Look | Jacket: Urban Outfitters (similar here), Top: J.Crew (similar here), Skirt: Vintage (Tien’s Grandma’s), Sneakers: Isabel Marant (similar here), Earrings: Vintage, Necklace: Fallon
Tien’s Look | Turtleneck: StyleMint, Sweater: Madewell (similar here), Skirt: vintage, Shoes: Loeffler Randall, Bug Tattoos: Tattly
Tien styled me in two slightly different looks here. We joked that in the look without the jacket I was a politician. By adding the jacket and sneakers I fast forwarded about 50 years and gained a lot of attitude simultaneously.
Head over to Say Hello Max to see how I styled Tien!

I’ve gotta say, I’ve always wanted to get away with wearing a jumpsuit. Until a friend let me borrow this one for a recent party, I hadn’t been able to find one that was flattering. Not only was it crazy comfortable, but I loved that it was different than what I would typically wear.

In November, I got to visit my friends Jen and Jonnie at the Tattly office. I snagged a bunch for my own and by the end of Thanksgiving dinner, my family was covered in them.
And when I thought it couldn’t get any better, they now have friendship bracelet tattoos!

I recently bought sweatshirt #1 and realized just how awesome sweatshirts really are. Lately I’ve seen so many options that go above and beyond the typical hoodie, and they’re getting me pretty darn excited.

I was lucky enough to spend the end of 2012 in warm Florida with my family.
For 2013, my resolution is to make a better effort at keeping in touch with friends and family that I don’t get to see everyday. Life gets busy easily, but it’s so important!
My style resolution on the other hand, is just to buy better shoes. That one’s so deep, I know.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

I teamed up with the Say Hello Max ladies Tienlyn and Elsa for a California Christmas shoot, aka an excuse to get dressed up. We’ll take any excuse we can get, really.
We decided to style each other, so of course I had to have Tien drip in gold. Her top is vintage from the Alameda Flea Market (one of my favorite places), her skirt is Tinley Road, and her necklace is one of my all time favorite pieces by Bay Area jewelry designer Meagan Reelitz.
My favorite accessory for Tien’s look though was probably this gold soda can. You’re not dripping in gold until you’re holding a gold soda can.
Tien decided to style me in sequins and leather. I approved. The leather pants from Tart Collections are crazy comfortable. Definitely the way to dress up without feeling the pain, although I can’t say the same for the shoes.
