Soar








I've shared a couple of photos on Instagram wearing this makeup look and had a few people ask me about my lipstick, including my mom & sister L.A. (who both thought I was trying to keep it a secret lol.) 

Before finding this color I had been on the hunt for a matte natural lipstick for the longest time but I didn't find anything I was in love with, until I stumbled upon "Soar" lipliner my MAC. This has been my go to lip color for about 6 months now. I was surprised that it was the perfect consistency to use alone all over my lips without drying them out. 


Before applying this lip liner I make sure to moisturize my lips with Burt's Bees Lip Balm. Then I line and fill them with Soar by MAC

Classic




When I’m looking to add a new piece to my wardrobe no matter the price, I keep in mind versatility. When I was younger shopping was purely based on price and trend. Curating a closet of staples and classics that I can reach for and know I will be comfortable wearing is a work in progress for me, but well worth it. 

This black jumpsuit is a perfect example of a closet classic. It is loosely structured and made from a comfortable fabric. I found this one for a great price, plus I knew I could wear it multiple ways and for various events. I've had it in my closet for a couple years already.




I've worn this jumpsuit with a pair of heels and a few accessories to dress it up for a night out. I took these outfit photos last year when I first bought this Jumpsuit to wear out to a few events for a sleek look. 

Recently, I wore it for a brunch date with one of my girlfriends. I cuffed the legs of this jumpsuit, threw on a denim jacket (another classic) and paired it with some espadrilles. It was a quick comfortable outfit with a laid back feel without sacrificing style.

Having something simple like this that you can dress up or down with heels, flats and other accessories is the epitome of pieces I try to have in my closet. A closet full of trendy things that you can only wear for a few months or only to one event is an empty closet in my eyes. 

What are some classics pieces in your wardrobe?

Huge thanks to: Jessica Whitehead for the photography of the Jumpsuit & heels outfit and one of my best friends Melody for capturing the casual look.

Gloom


Moto Jacket- Zara /Sweater-Vintage/Skirt- H&M/ Boots- Aldo

The small amount of rain and gloom we experienced in SoCal this past weekend has me missing the cooler Fall season. A combination of sweaters, moto jackets and boots are my pieces of choice and an outfit like this is most likely what you'd find me in.

A few months back I had the chance to shoot with a friend of mine Erich Chen- talented photographer,jet setting world traveler and such a fun guy to be around. So it was awesome catching up and having the opportunity to shoot with him. 

I posted a couple of sets from the session we had together in my previous posts that you may remember (Bigger Than Fear & If/Then.) I'm not sure why I haven't already, but I wanted to share another set from that session.
