crazy for layout - floral jeans
1. Paige Verdugo Ankle  in Flea Market Floral / 2. J.Crew Liberty Toothpick Jean in Tresco Floral / 3. Forever 21 Rose Print Skinny Jeans / 4.Gap 1969 Printed Legging Skimmer Jeans / 5. Hudson Krista Super Skinny Jeans (although not quite a traditional floral print, the pattern gave off more of an abstract flowery feel, which I thought was fresh and fun)
Floral denim has been around for a bit now, but it hasn’t seemed to go anywhere, which is fine by me. I love a good bold, flowery print and when paired with either a basic white v-neck or classic chambray button down, it’s the perfect go-to outfit for a sunny spring day.

Exciting news! Come join Kim from Eat.Sleep.Wear and I on December 6th, where we will be hosting a very fun event with Gap and InStyle at the 34th street location in Manhattan. It’s a perfect chance to say hello, (we’d love to see you!), sip on a cocktail, and do some serious Christmas shopping (take 30 percent off your purchase). Plus, one lucky reader will win a chance to be styled by me in a head-to-toe ensemble courtesy of Gap! To enter, leave a comment below – I will be choosing the winner a week from today, so stay tuned! xo

I wore this to a meeting with Echo (more to come on that soon!) and then to a client session uptown earlier this week. Monday threatened rain all day, but thankfully it never delivered. Regardless I was happy to be wearing these rain-friendly booties I scooped up at the Gap last year. They are super comfy and versatile, which is exactly what one needs when running around the city on a grey, overcast day. Hope you all are having a lovely week! xo

Finally, a peek into the Gap 1969 Design Studio, where the magic happens. I tried to capture all the greatness, but I don’t think these photos do it justice. It was so inspiring to walk into such a spacious and beautiful loft, full of such talented people, everyone so excited to talk about the brand and what they were working on.

I have to say I really loved all the pieces I saw for fall and can’t wait for my cute taupe skinny cords to arrive in the mail! Thank you again to Gap and Vogue for hosting this amazing opportunity. I had an incredible time. xoxo

P.S. Ann from the wonderful blog, Holier Than Now was on the trip as well (love her!) and did a fantastic job creating a great collage of the whole event as well as taking beautiful photographs inside the studio. Check them out here!

I arrived in LA a day early before everything took place, so I was lucky enough to indulge in some relaxation time at my luxurious accommodations, the Mondrian Los Angeles Hotel. I spent some much needed R&R at the pool and took a walk (!) down Sunset Boulevard to see what I could see. I have to admit it was a little strange to see so few people on the street after being very used to the hustle bustle of New York’s crowded sidewalks. But, I quickly adapted and soaked up the perfect sunny weather, did a little shopping and then met a good friend for dinner and drinks later that evening at the Hollywood Roosevelt. For those of you just joining us, this is what I wore.

Stay tuned for the final recap and photos from the Gap event, tomorrow! xoxo

Last week I was lucky enough to be flown out to Los Angeles as a part of the Vogue Blogger Network for a very fun meeting and event thrown by Gap. I took a million photos and met some amazing people, all of which I will share over the next couple days (still compiling!), but for now, here are some photos of what I wore to the event…

More to come on why I am in LA, but right now I just want to share that I am enjoying the west coast and am looking forward to a very fun event, which is taking place today! However, this is what I wore last night to drinks and dinner at the Hollywood Roosevelt. Amazing place, folks. I was a huge fan and definitely recommend you check it out the next time you are in LA! xoxo

My Dad took these photos back in December when it was actually warm enough to shoot without a coat on! He actually helped me pose and said I looked like I was right out of the 70s. I took that as a very big compliment and let him direct me to get the right “70s” look (glasses down on nose, stand with a slight slouch, give me a smirk etc.) however he thought best. Thanks for everything, Dad! xoxo
