Threw it back to 2011, strolling through the city with my jean jacket, singing Hot Chelle Rae’s “Downtown Girl” because it’s just so catchy. There’s nothing I love more than putting on my go-to outfit and heading downtown for a coffee date or in this case, an impromptu photoshoot with my sister.

I find happiness in walking the streets of downtown and gazing aimlessly at the beautiful historic buildings. And words can’t explain how ecstatic I get when I see Christmas lights hanging from wall to wall.

My go-to outfit for these types of occasions is simple and hella comfy. I practically live in these MOTO Black Ripped Jamie Jeans from Topshop. They’re extremely comfortable. And the distressed knees add a grunge factor that I absolutely love. My top is a grey tank from Brandy Melville and we all know their clothing is pretty much made of clouds. Underneath my top, I wore a burnt yellow lace bralette from Me to We. I threw on my favorite Oversized Vintage Denim Jacket from Pacsun, just incase the weather got chilly. And to complete my outfit, I wore classic white Converses, which let’s be honest…shouldn’t even be considered white at this point.Processed with VSCO with a4 presetProcessed with VSCO with a4 presetProcessed with VSCO with a4 presetProcessed with VSCO with a4 preset

As a fashion blogger, I’m constantly on social media admiring celebrity fashion and taking inspirations from them. The best part is discovering that I can recreate my favorite celeb styles with pieces I already have in my closet, or at a cheaper price.

I stumbled upon this idea as I was scrolling through Instagram and noticed Olivia Holt’s style was very similar to my own. I quickly realized I could ‘steal’ her style by collecting a few items from my closet. The idea drove me to develop a new series on my blog called ‘Steal-eb Style’.

Olivia attended the grand opening of Perverse Sunglasses in L.A. wearing an olive green floor length skirt with a side slit and a dark green, deep-V strapped cropped top. She completed her outfit with simple black heels and gold earrings.

I tried to duplicate her outfit as best I could without changing too many pieces. I wore a similar black-strapped Me to We top from Pacsun, with an army green maxi skirt from Forever21. The skirt had buttons running down the skirt, so I unbuttoned a few to give the illusion of a slit. Instead of wearing heels, I opted for these Steve Madden strapped sandals for a casual, every-day look.

My second recreation was taken from an outfit Olivia wore at the Roxy Theatre. I stole this style, because I figured it would be the easiest for everyone to replicate.


dsc_0848dsc_0836This outfit incorporates very simple pieces that I’m sure every girl already has in their wardrobe, a white tee, LBD (little black dress) and white sneakers. I wore a soft & sexy tee from American Eagle. My LBD is from Forever21 and white sneakers are Vans Leather Sk8 High Tops. I topped off the entire outfit with a suede choker.

As a fashion blogger, I love discovering new and unique pieces to add to my outfits and I have to say Jord provides the perfect accessories. Jord is an amazing brand that specializes in one-of-a-kind, high quality wood watches.

Jord offer a couple different style options, as well as a wide variety of wood colors for both men & women. The watch featured in these photos is the ‘Frankie’ series in Koa & Ash. I am extremely happy with my choice, especially because it’s great for everyday wear.

This watch has been a staple in many of my summer outfits. I enjoy pairing the watch with neutral clothing for a more earthy feel. I recently wore it to a day date with family and friends in L.A. and got some wonderful comments.

Another way I like to style my Jord watch is with a denim jacket. I think the stitching on the jacket really compliments the color of the watch.

Jord wooden watches make unique gifts for that special someone in your life like a friend or family member. I guarentee they won’t be disappointed. 🙂

Summer is coming to an end, so now is the time to get in all your last minute summer travels. Sometimes, planning a trip to a tropical island or a foreign city isn’t ideal for a budget or convenience, but you can still have a wonderful vacation locally.

My family and I recently took a two day trip to Dana Point Beach for a staycation at the Monarch Beach Resort. Although, the location was thirty minutes from home, I still felt as if we were miles away. The resort had a gorgeous view of the ocean and included many activities on the premises. My favorite part of the trip was driving by their butterfly sanctuary. The beach was equally as beautiful as the butterflies.

For the duration of our short trip, I lived in this swim suit combo. My unique swim top is from Aerie from American Eagle. My simple black tied bathing suit bottoms are from OP. I used my absolute favorite top from TopShop as a cover up. The high slit on the side of this top make it even more summer appropriate and spices up an ordinary button up.

Summer may be ending, but I’m happy to have made so many memories. Stay wild, child. <3

This summer we took a family trip to Oahu, Hawaii and it was absolutely magical. I would have to say Hawaii is by far my favorite vacation spot. I am a sucker for tropical weather, beaches, fresh fruits, breathtaking views and spending the majority of my time in shorts, crop tops and my swim suit.

During our stay, I made great use of this beautiful fringe cardigan from The Mint Julep Boutique. Honestly, it was the perfect cardigan for this occasion. The fringe details instantly gave all my outfits a boho vibe and I loved it. This cardigan kept me cool during the day, but also added some warmth for the nights spent walking down the beach. It also worked very well as a swim suit cover up. Mint Julep’s Flawless Fringe Cardigan is so versatile, it has to be one of my must-haves for summer.

When on vacation with my family, we don’t like to waste time sitting around, and why would you when you’re on such a beautiful island? So, there wasn’t much time to get ready and that was okay, because this fringe cardigan made it easy to look put together without even trying. All I had to do was put on a pair of shorts, a crop top and finish it off with the cardigan and I was all set. Simple but cute outfits in a jiffy and I was ready to explore Oahu.
