When in Rome (or in this case LA) dress the part! I may have changed that a bit, but you get the gist!
About two months ago I signed with LA Models, so these past two weeks I have been down in Los Angeles for castings and jobs!
First thing I did in LA was buying this hat from Goorin Bros! I'm not usually a hat person but with this heat and in awe of the style here in LA I gave in and bought this beaut!
What I love about this hat is that it's black and made of straw! The perfect combination to take you from spring to fall or day to night!
With the cool LA style in mind I grabbed my asos choker and my new lightweight black blouse from Urban outfitters. One aspect I over looked in preparation for my trip was the heat! Holy cow it's hot in LA, AND I just happened to arrive during a heat wave!
So light layers was a must for the past two weeks!
I can't rave enough about these suede Toms booties! I'm sure you've heard all about these babies but lemme tell you why I live (yes live) in mine!
First off, I would like to mention that I am 5'11 naturally, so you won't find me in heels on the reg. BUT, these 2 3/4 inch booties are the perfect height for everything from running errands to grabbing drinks!
Secondly they are the comfiest heels I have ever found! No joke, I've worn these all day and have never had a problem! Mind you, I wear heels for modeling all the time, so I know bad heels when I wear them lol!
Last, but not least, my lovely brown leather jacket! I've always loved black, its a clean look and never shows stains/dirt (I'm really clumsy)But I'm slowly moving on to softer shades for fall! Instead of black I'm leaning towards shades of brown, grey, and navy.
And this jacket is a steal! I was browsing around Nordstrom Rack looking for absolutely nothing when I hit the jackpot with this number! A Michael
Kors genuine leather motto jacket. Did I mention it comes in three other colors?! All for under $200!

Happy Thursday! I'm back again with a re-cap of our amazing trip to the Hamptons!
Thanks to the amazing Brittany Byrd (who planned the night) we all boarded an adorable catamaran in Montauk for our sunset cruise! Bundled up with our lobster rolls, white jeans, and rose we were ready to set sail.
As you can tell I was pretty pumped about my "nantucket red" Montauk hat that I bought a mere 30 minutes previous lol
I must say, spending time with family is one of the best ways to vacation and I can't thank the Byrd and Saeta family enough for such an incredibly trip!
So next year.....?
After some much needed down time in SF I'm finally all caught up from our trip to New York and the haze of traveling the past couple of months. So, needless to say the next couple of posts are going to be dedicated to the amazing memories from our trip!
As you all know, I LOVE shopping and I take every trip as an opportunity to find new pieces to add to my ever growing closet (Sorry Andrew)!
As expected, shopping in the Hamptons was as amazing as I thought it would be. Adorable little shops all lined up and down the streets.
My first stop, JCrew!
My favorite find at JCrew? This amazing blue and white striped, criss-cross dress! It caught my eye as I was wandering the store and I just couldn't leave it behind.
Hitting right at the knee, it's the perfect light summer dress for day or night.
Every outfit needs a key accessory and these tassel earrings are becoming my everything! Not only does white go with almost anything, but the long tassels add an elegance to this everyday addition. Better yet, they are only $33 and come in a plethora of colors!
(I bought them in turquoise too!)
And the BEST part about this dress?! The criss-cross straps unbutton so you can wear it as a halter or even straight down like a tank. I mean...who doesn't love options?!
