NYFW: Settling In At Dream Hotel For The Week

Day 1 in the whirlwind of Fashion Week. Today I got to my new home, Dream Hotel. It lives up to its name and not to mention, the neighborhood is perfect for a stroll. Here's a peek into the first day along with one of my outfits:

Can't wait to share more from the week soon!

Back to the 90s with Express

Hello June... and almost bye June! This month has already flown by. Earlier this week I took a little break and visited my friends in Seattle (who normally live down the street from me), and we decided to venture into Lake Cushman where Bethany's family has a cabin at the lake. It's one of the most beautiful places I've ever seen– also, it's the type of place that feels the most home for me. The lake... the mountains... the views. Every moment was a breath of fresh air– to get away from a busy city and just be. It was nice to disconnect from the world and be present with where we were.

We've teamed up with Express to share this little adventure and bring back some good 90s trends in clothing. Not to mention, I'm a 90's rock/alternative fanatic and always will be. It's where my own music is inspired from, so the lifestyle and nostalgia was something so fun to capture. Take a look at some of the pieces we styled below:
 

Lately I've been living in body suits since they're the perfect thing to throw on under anything. Express has a ton of different styles for bodysuits too, which have been fun to mix and match. Also, can never go wrong with an oversized plaid shirt, ever. 

We unintentionally matched, but I love the similarities and pieces we leaned towards. Bethany is wearing an olive bomber, black choker, and a seamless top. I've got my camo jacket with patches, red bodysuit, and black skinnies.

Camo, how I've missed thee! I can remember so many different phases of loving different styles of camo. Right now I'm loving the oversized look with some fun patches thrown on. 

This fun ride was brought by our friend, Ben Schuyler. He's a true explorer and it was so fun to see his 'home' on the road and spend time in it by the lake. 

Hope you enjoyed this mini getaway and don't forget to subscribe to the Youtube channel for more weekly updates, vlogs, music, and more.

Road Trip Getaway with LOFT

Photo May 21, 4 19 00 PM.jpg

Happy Monday! This weekend was nonstop with my friend, Bethany as we adventured around desert roads and mountains. We got a head start celebrating her birthday week with friends in town, long brunches, and get togethers. But as usual, our favorite activity is to explore and adventure around new places. We get so excited about finding new things and even learning more about each other through those trips. Some of our best conversations have happened throughout them– and other times, the funniest. 

We got to venture out with LOFT, giving us the perfect pieces to display through out our road trip. They've been such an effortless addition to the outing we were craving. I always love a romper that can be timeless and this black romper did the trick. With the minimal ruffles on the front and the simplicity of the style, there's so much room to accessorize. My second outfit was equally another favorite with a simple button down and a flared short with ripped edges. I can't wait to layer them with other pieces throughout the summer. For outfit details, see below.

Escape to the Mountains

Since living in LA, it's been few and far between getting to do the usual escaping but my friend Bethany and I got to find this incredible spot where we'll definitely be going more often. We're both used to sceneries like this– with her being from Seattle and me spending a good portion of my time in Northern California. (See some past adventures here: Big Four Ice Caves, Mount Tamalpais, Tennessee Trail)

Before we both moved to LA, we'd always meet in landscapes that looked like another world and it's what felt like home for the both of us. Getting to explore and be in awe of what we'd find, we realized how much we missed that when we took this little trip. Capturing moments like this mean so much to us and this was a sweet way to revisit that and continue to build those same adventures in the midst of being in a busy city like LA.

Hope you enjoyed! Here's some of our favorite go-to pieces below:
