desert daze.

on a recent market trip to l.a. we stopped in the desert to go to joshua tree national park [this place is an absolute treasure x a must see x completely breathtaking].  we did a quick editorial shoot // capturing a captivating landscape + equally stunning products.  no, i'm not a self-proclaimed zen person or anything like that but i seriously wanted to lay down + "be one with the the world" [or something of the sort].  it was such a quiet x magical place.  i hope each of you can experience it one day.  below are a few of my favorite images from our shoot in the wild wild west . . .

night life.

one of the best things about fall is all of the new reasons to get dressed up. all of the holiday parties bring together friends + family + give you a reason to pull out your prettiest pieces and have a night out. enjoy chilly nights + warm memories with loved ones as the holidays approach

seasons.


fall. bar none, this is the season i love most. the time i catch myself taking pleasure in the smallest of tasks; brisk mornings taking the mail out x turning the heat on for the first time x craving the warmth of a fresh cup of coffee x snuggling ... this is the time i feel most alive.  and can we please discuss wardrobe?  the options that open up with autumn might just be the biggest pro... this is the b-e-s-t time to dress.  example > in this look i'm rocking as much texture as humanly possible; leather, wool, and [faux] fur.  it's a time to update your lipstick color, haircut +/- color [note: new BANGS].  take some time for yourself, look in the mirror with a little bit of extra care, and add something that makes you smile.  friends, life is short but sweet for certain.



a personal fave.  hope you love as much as i do:  “her pleasure in the walk must arise from the exercise and the day, from the view of the last smiles of the year upon the tawny leaves and withered hedges, and from repeating to herself some few of the thousand poetical descriptions extant of autumn--that season of peculiar and inexhaustible influence on the mind of taste and tenderness--that season which has drawn from every poet worthy of being read some attempt at description, or some lines of feeling.”  -- jane austen

living in leather.

you don't need a motorcycle + a james dean attitude to rock leather this season.  it's the perfect way to add edge to an otherwise feminine look.  this new dress style by veda is my new go-to, no doubt.
