Transitional Beauty Picks for Summer-to-Fall Self Care

As of this past weekend, Summer is unofficially over—and it definitely feels like a change of seasons in the air! The mornings are cool and cloudy, and the afternoons are punctuated by the honking of geese on their flight south. While I’m sure that we’ll see at least one more heat wave here in LA, […]

My Fave Workout Clothes to Keep Your Summer Fitness Routine Fresh!

Whenever Ivan and I are faced with a healthy vs. indulgent choice, we ask each other: “What would Hot Vegas Couple do?” It’s our running inside joke that began years ago, on our first ever trip to Vegas together, when we were sitting poolside and couldn’t help but notice a husband and wife making a […]

Heatwave-Worthy Straw Hats for Summer

When it comes to hats, I fall staunchly in the camp of, “They always look better on other people than on me”. But with summer here to stay (and another heat wave predicted for Southern California this week!), comfort trumps ego and breezy straw hats becomes de rigeur. The sun around here is no joke, and a […]

My Keep-Cool Summer Beauty Essentials

You guys, summer got real over the weekend. It was 114 degrees here in LA, our power went out meaning no A/C, and we spent Saturday night at a motel just so we could get some sleep! But even before this first big heat wave hit, I was starting to feel the effect of the hot, […]

Found: The Perfect Suede Jacket for Summer

Last night Ivan and I had one of those terrible before-bed arguments that leaves you feeling too worked up to sleep. The subject? Air conditioning, and the fact that we don’t have it. We’ve been incredibly fortunate to have only cool days so far this year, but I can feel the heat waves looming and […]

When I think back to the Spring of 2018, this outfit and variations on it will be the sartorial image that most comes to mind. There’s something so appealing about the flowy, wide-leg pant silhouette that we’ve been seeing in recent seasons. It’s utterly wearable and forgiving, making it easy to feel chic and put-together […]

Transitional Spring Style: Oversized Trench + White Column Dress

It feels funny still to be writing about transitional spring style in May, but this year’s wonky weather patterns have left most of us still reaching for our jackets and coats! I’m never mad about an excuse to build my look around a key piece of outerwear, and this season’s oversized trench coat trend is […]

Transitional Spring Style: How to Wear Black + White Polka Dots

There’s no question that when it comes to patterns, polka dots are my absolute favorite. (Okay, leopard’s up there too, but animal spots are basically nature’s polka dots, right?) Think about it. Polka dots are an all-too-rare instance of everything to everyone: bold repeating shapes for the modernist, timeless panache for the classicist, and loads […]

Transitional Spring Style: The Lightweight Trench Coat

Lately, some of my most-referenced fashion inspiration comes not from the latest street style pins to make the rounds but from photos of my mom in the late 70’s and early 80’s. Not only was she a total babe (my parents’ love story is the ultimate science-nerd-gets-the-secretly-brilliant-cheerleader tale), but she had an air of understated […]

6 Weeks of Winter Style: The Lightweight Plaid Coat

Well, it’s mid-March, and it’s still a regular chill-fest here in Southern California! I’m loving it—I’m in no rush to get to those 100 degree days we have in the Summer—and I’m thrilled that my outerwear collection is seeing some regular action. This is the second-to-last in my winter style posts, but it wouldn’t take much […]

6 Weeks of Winter Style: The Boxy Cropped Jacket

Phew, that groundhog was not messing around when he predicted six more weeks of winter! When I shot six weeks of cold weather outfits at the end of January, I was worried that in four weeks’ time they’d no longer feel relevant. Yet given that we find ourselves experiencing icy blasts more suited to November than […]

6 More Weeks of Winter Style: The Polka Dot Statement Coat

Whelp, it’s official. I’ve been struck down by this winter’s latest scourge, the strange flu-cold-whatever that’s been making the rounds. Though currently on day 5 of bedrest with no improvement in sight, I’m doing my best to stay upbeat on my steady diet of tea and toast and Twitter. It’s all about perspective, after all, […]
