black and tan

 It seems that after a summer of practically living in dresses and skirts, pants are finally maiking a much deserved appearance in my every day wear. I snagged these at the Shopbop.com sale and couldn't be happier with my find.

print mixing

With so much going on in the next few weeks, I've been running around town like crazy trying to get everything done before my next two trips.  This means I've been sporting a sort of uniform like the one above. A little bit of print mixing keeps the formula fresh.

Tomorrow I'll  be helping H&M celebrate the opening of their new Valencia Town Center store.
 As part of the celebration the first five customers in line to tweet/Instagram a selfie at me and H&M with the hashtag #hmlovesvalencia will win early access to the store along with a style consultation and a free head to toe outfit courtesy of H&M. And anyone who attends both this store opening and the store opening at Antelope Valley Mall on September 10th, can be entered to win a $1,000 H&M gift card.
Stores open at 12:00pm, hope to see you there!

pale pink


I wore this little number in Miami and again this week. I'm not a hit-it-and-quit-it kind of girl when it comes to my wardrobe.

endless summer

This was one of my favorite dresses of the summer. It has served me well.
We snapped these pics while cruising around Malibu this weekend, trying to soak up the last official days of summer. It's not like it's ever going to get much colder, but there is a definite shift in the city's mood as soon as September starts. Speaking of September, I'm once again getting ready to go to NYFW, but this time we booked one way tickets with the hopes of running away on a little East Coast road trip. Hopefully it will all come together.

sunday bites

I love watermelon more than any other fruit. I can eat it every day, and in fact I do eat it every day in the summer. I usually just cut it in half, grab a spoon, and go to town. 
This morning I decided to get a little fancy with my watermelon game and whipped up this honey grilled watermelon with a basil yogurt dipping suace. I did manage to snap a few pictures before devouring pretty much all of it. 

Ingredients:
1 seedless watermelon 
Orgnaic honey
Extra virgin olive oil
 1 cup Greek yogurt
Finely chopped fresh basil
Hazelnuts
Salt & pepper

Directions:
Pre-heat a grill or a grill pan on medium/high heat.
Slice the watermelon into triangles. Brush both sides of the watermelon slices with oil, salt/pepper, and drizzle with honey. Grill watermelon for 3 - 5 minutes on each side depending on how charred you'd like it.  Combine the Greek yogurt with basil and mix well. 
Once the watermelon is done you're ready to serve.
Arrange the watermelon slices and dipping sauce over some lush greenery ( I'm using clean plam leaves from my yard), sprinkle with fresh basil and hazelnuts.
Serve and enjoy!

Happy Sunday!
