Forage.




My first ever food post on the blog!! Ok, so as I mentioned I recently moved and I just got a new camera to document all my exploring. You may have to bear with me as I am just getting used to using this thing! Today I had lunch in Silverlake at this fantastic place called Forage, with my pattern maker Natalia. She recommended it and it was a fabulous suggestion. I have to admit it's a little intimidating at first- everyone in Silverlake is so effortlessly cool and I'm still getting the nerve to bust out this camera in public. After fumbling to turn it on and forgetting to take my lens cap off (duh) I managed to sneak a few pics.

I got the Roasted Salmon Bowl; Roasted Salmon, Brown Rice, Picked Scarlet Turnips and Garlic Kale. And these scrambled egg strip things and some amazing soy type sauce. So good. (I will get better with my describing words as I get used to this new food blogging thing. But for now good is what I've got) I almost opted out of the Turnips, because I wasn't sure if I even liked Turnips but they were the best part!! There are a lot of things to choose from cafeteria style or you can get made to order. Either way, it's all fresh, healthy and delish. 

We skimped on dessert but that Southern Lemon Pie looks pretty damn good doesn't it! Next time.

Get Over It.








Overalls: Volcom | Long Sleeve: Mint. | Bag: Aimee Kestenberg | Sandals: Reef.

I have to admit, I know this overall trend has been kickin' for a few seasons now but I don't think I've actually owned a pair since my Osh Kosh days. Saying that, I couldn't pass up these adorable railroad stripes! The tricky thing is the shirt to go under... hm... I decided to go with simple white. This long sleeve tee is from my line and has a fun pop of neon stitching, complimenting the kinda of washed out vintage vibe of the overalls. Also adding some fun color are these new sandals from Reef. Interesting choice? Seeing as these babies would normally be paired with a beachy maxi or classic shorts and tank combo I thought I would give them a chance with something unexpected. Hey, what can I say? I like to mix it up.

Wild N' Crazy Kids.





Shorts: Sanctuary | Sweater: BB Dakota | Sneakers: Nike | Bag: Lancaster Paris.

Shorts weather is upon us. This print reminds me of the Nickelodeon days, you know?! Nick na' nick nick na' nick nick nick... Love the subtle pops of color and they have the perfect amount of drape without being too flouncy. I paired them with this open back sweater. You know I'm a fan of open back stuff (Open back tanks from my line here and here) I just love how the front is so conservative and then BAM when you walk away. Something about open backs is always more sexy to me then low cut fronts. I think it's the element of surprise and maybe how most guys can't figure out sticky bras and what your wearing, or not wearing under there. Mysterious! Well, later Bra'

Tie Dye Dress: Mint. | Bangles: Rope The Moon | Hat: Similar here | Moccasins: Similar here

It's less then 7 days away! Have you got your outfits planned out yet?! No worries- we've got you covered. My first pick for Coachella is our Tiger Stripe Tie Dye Dress. Made in our signature tee shirt material this tea length dress (I love to style it by tying it in a knot on the side) is so perfect for pool-side parties, desert romping, and of course grooving to your favorite tunes. Pile up the bangles, add a felt hat and some moccasins and your good to go!!
