Hanging Out at LACMA

Today I wanted to share with you an easy, cool outfit that's perfect for days when you want to dress comfortably, but need a little polish.

I spent the day at LACMA Mogging away, and this was just the thing to wear for a day spent writing and doodling on the museum lawn - a fashion blogger's off-duty look, if you will.

Starting with my favorite jeans at the moment - my Alexander Wang X Denim  - I paired them with this great indigo pocket tee from Wallace & Barnes at JCrew. Because of the relaxed silhouette, I paired it with some great Cole Haan oxfords and a full arm party, to keep it feeling refined and not sloppy.

I love days that I get to spend at the museum or art gallery. It's so important to get out in the world and see the interesting and exciting work other artists are doing - it keeps me inspired. What sort of places do you all go to feel inspired and get some work done at the same time? I'd love to know, especially if they're here in LA. Always on the hunt for things to do! Let me know in the comments below, and I'll be sure to check it out.

SPRING LOOKBOOK

Hey guys! Thought I'd share with you all a little something my boyfriend Nicholas and I shot last week. I've always wanted to challenge myself to create a number of looks from just a few key pieces, so here it is.

20 Pieces. 10 Looks. 10 different occasions to wear them to.

The key to success here was using clean, simple, classic pieces - what I'm referring to as #thenewclassics - to create some really great looks. I used a mix of high-end and casual brands (and even snuck in a few of my own designs) to create accessible looks for any occasion you may have this spring. 

Let me know how I did in the comments below - and share with me if you've ever done anything similar. I'd love to check it out.
