Timeless, iconic, always on trend—no I’m not talking about my personal style (wink, wink), I’m talking about stripes. Whether they’re vertical or horizontal, wide or narrow, stripes instantly transform any piece into a wardrobe classic. Though they’re obviously appropriate for any time of year, I especially love wearing stripes in the summer months when the nautical trend is having its time in the spotlight.
I’m not usually one to wear vibrant colors and prints, but when the weather starts warming up, I can’t help but gravitate towards the tropical pattern play that’s hanging in every store window. There’s just something about a summer floral that puts a smile on my face and makes me feel like I’m on vacation, even if I’m stuck in front of the computer at work.
As basic as this may sound, the thing I look forward to most on the weekends is brunch. I mean, I would pretty much live off of mimosas and eggs benedict if I was allowed. I’ve been to my fair share of brunch spots in Orange County and, don’t get me wrong, I’ve had some delicious meals. But last weekend’s experience was one that’ll be hard to top.
Although sometimes taboo, the old saying ‘opposites attract’ does ring true, especially in the fashion world. Things that aren’t technically supposed to go together oftentimes make the best combination. Ergo, lace and leather. Who doesn’t remember Britney’s infamous song off of her comeback album Circus? And even though Britney doesn’t alwaaays get it right (she’s been spotted on the worst dressed list just once or twice), this time, she was right on the money.
I recently traveled to Birmingham, Alabama for the 18th annual Sidewalk Film Festival. I absolutely loved being back in the South and exploring a new city for the first time. Our weekend consisted of watching amazing indie movies, eating delicious BBQ and attending event after event alongside fellow filmmakers. With our itinerary so jam-packed, versatility was key when it came to styling choices.
