CALIFORNIA DREAMIN' WITH AG


Being born and raised in Cali, I find myself constantly drawn to the feeling of an endless summer and California Dreamin'. Long days at the beach, palm trees, bright sunshine, blue skies and vintage cars... that is what my Cali-cool dreams are made of.

I recently partnered with AG on this look that exemplifies a relaxed, laid-back style, and includes my current denim obsession. The Tellis in 22 Years Melville is pretty much my ideal pair of jeans... soft, distressed, and with a vintage wash that is familiar yet modern at the same time. When paired with The Downey Striped Polo, it's an outfit that's ideal for any lazy day in Cali.

FULL BLOOM


Spring is fully here in LA, and everything is in full bloom after the massive rains we've seen. The skies are sunny, the foliage is flourishing... love it!

I recently spent a day in the sun with some friends, enjoying lunch outside followed by a fun event poolside. The perfect day to sport this floral shirt!

DOUBLE DENIM WITH BOOHOOMAN

No shame in the fact that I love to rock double denim. Voila! For this latest outing, I decided to mix it up a bit in terms of the shades and finishes. This pair of shredded up acid wash denim just screams 80's (an obvious plus for me) and the army green distressed denim jacket adds a dose of modern cool to the look. Bonus... both of these killer pieces are from boohooMAN!

What's your favorite way to sport double denim? Leave me a comment and let me know!

Zack Morris vibes all day every day! You know I'm never afraid to throw a bright pop of 90's influencer into a look, and this outfit kind of perfectly exemplifies that. From the gnarly shades to the printed tee, I threw on my favorite Vans to finish it off. Catch ya at The Max!

I'VE GOT MY WAYFARERS ON, BABY


As Don Henely put it ever so cooly in one of my favorite songs of all time, "Boys of Summer"... "You've got your hair slicked back and those Wayfarers on, baby."

Oh baby, but boy do Wayfarers ever add the ultimate dose of cool without any sort of try-hard to an outfit. These are authentic vintage Ray-Ban Wayfarers from wayyyy back... and are actually my mom's! She was generous enough to loan these to me for the shoot ;)

Plus, any outfit is instantly that much cooler when you throw on a leather jacket... duh.

90'S VIBES


The big 90's logo is definitely having a moment. As you know, I am always on board for anything that gives off 80's or 90's vibes, so when I spotted this Gap t-shirt I knew exactly how I'd style it. Light wash dad-style Levi's and my favorite slides. A super easy and effortless look.

DOUBLE THE DENIM


As I always say... double the denim, double the fun!

I am way overdue for some recent outfit shots, and between work, spending time with family and friends, and taking time for myself... apologies!

As a little backstory to this outfit, I unapologetically love the historically tacky combo of denim on denim. However, my love for this combo has recently evolved. As recent as a few years ago, I used to think that wearing double denim was only cool if you mixed up the washes. So, for example, wearing a dark wash denim shirt with a pair of light wash jeans. Now, I'm like... who cares! Give me some light wash jeans and a light wash shirt and I'm down.

IN LIVING COLOR



It's no secret that I am a fan of sporting big, bold colors, and this fun Valentino shirt from Mr. Porter ticks all the right boxes. A slightly retro cut pairs perfectly with the deconstructed tropical print.

I wore it with a pair of white skinny jeans and bright turquoise driving shoes - this look took me from weekend brunch to some shopping in Venice. Legit!
