Winter is officially here, and for many of us that means that our skin begins to take in the dry and brutal cold weather. With the heat indoors, that can suck the life out of anyone’s routine. I have three different work trips coming up, on top of doing NBA All-Star, which means that taking extra care at night is crucial to keep me glowing. Also, I tend to hibernate a bit when I am working like this, so also staying comfy for me is key in cute sweats, like these ones from Sundry. What I love about them, is that they look just as cute with these Nike kicks to run a few errands around town as well!
In the morning, I always start off with my coffee, while doing some reading and using the coolest and inexpensive tool, the Hansderma Ice Roller. I simply roll it over my face and neck to instantly tighten and depuff my skin. I also sleep at night with my humidifier from Amazon. It is the perfect tool to keep hydrated. Also, I drink at least two liters of water a day in the winter, I know it can be hard, but pick up a fun Swell Bottle which makes water seem so much cooler.
As for my skincare routine, I use ReVive Skincare and Malin + Goetz. Both of these lines can be found at Nordstrom. I always suggest seeing your favorite skincare specialist to walk you through the best products for your skin. I tend to not use my Glycolic pads more then once a week during the winter and focus on a once a week mask that is more hydrating!
Wow, this past week has been a whirlwind. I have been so lucky to team up with Hiptique on a fun project, Sneakerlab, Nice Kicks, and Nike! I feel like I was all over running to events, but through it all, I am realizing how blessed and fun it is to work in a field that I absolutely love. I also got to catch up with shop owner Jeremy Moore of Eighty Five Eighty Six to chat top trends.
The week started shooting a project with Hiptique, and these sequins pants are so fun for fall. If I am not wearing sneakers, the cool girl loafer trend is definitely my style as well. How cute are these from Sam Edelman?
Of course we shot most of the looks in this fun sweatshirt from Sundry and these camo joggers from Cami NYC. I have been living in these, and I simply paired them with my favorite Nike Air Max kicks.
The following day we shot at Eighty Five Eighty Six with Jeremy Moore. He actually got me into this Fila leggings for fall, and I love literally wearing them with the matching crop top and Jordans.
Thursday night and Friday it was all about Nice Kicks x Sneakerlab, and the Vogue x Nice Kicks event.
Both events were so fun, and seeing the Jordan that Anna Wintour did with Vogue was so cool!
How can it be that fall is just around the corner? Football season is already here, the NBA is gearing up for training camp, baseball is in full swing, and yep the weather is beginning to drop. For me, that means new sneakers in fall colors and patterns, cute crop sweatshirts with jeans and shorts, and long sleeve easy t-shirts on camera. I love this sweatshirt from one of my new favorite stores Laced by Southbay. It looks super cute with a cool pair of pants for a night out as well!
I am already feeling the fall colors in kicks, and these Medicine Ball Air Jordan’s and Red Champion sneakers both feel seasonal. I always throw on my Rastaclat bracelets with them to add a little fun punch. Also, how cool is this basketball bag from designer Andrea Bergart? Her designs sell out quick so make sure to keep up with her site to get your own!
We all know that mixing prints is big for me, and these cute pants from Sundry clothing available at Hiptique go perfectly with these super cute Nike Air Max kicks. These are their Beach Camo sneakers, and anything in a camouflage print for this season is huge. Also the high-waisted pant is here to stay, so make sure to try them! When the weather drops more, I will pair this cute Veronica Beard tee with denim jacket.
I have also quickly found a new favorite store in Texas. Their owner is just fabulous, and he gets all the best sneaker drops in, and along with it is creating his own line. Loving this cute long sleeve tee. Nothing is cooler then mixing a bit of neon with a tie dye print. Make sure to head over to Centre 214 for all things streetwear!
I know, it has been awhile since I have thrown up a blog post, and how I miss writing. Things have been so hectic, that I have yet to sit down for any chunks of time. I am so excited to tell you that I am cranking out the YouTube videos the next month, so stay tuned for all kinds of cool content. That being said, my sneaker game is continuing to grow, and right now, there are so many that I am lusting after for summer. Here are my favorites, and the fun ways to pair them!
I am minorly obsessed with middie all white clean kicks. These Nike pair are perfect with just about anything, but I love pairing them with a cool silk pantsuit like this one from Rebecca Taylor available at Hiptique!
When it comes to denim dresses, I love something that is a little bit flirty, like this piece from McGuire available at Nordstrom. When pairing it with shoes for summer, I added a fun touch with some cool camo vans that are always going to be fun all year long.
When it comes to jumpsuits, I live in them all summer as well, and this 1901 khaki piece is super cute and fun with any shoe. I cranked it up a notch with some cool Yeezy black on black 500’s.
These are my first pair, and I hope to continue to collect them each season. Stay tuned, more great sneakers and videos are coming your way, and a reminder to follow me on the Like to Know it App, to shop all of these looks.
Summer is here, and what I love about California is that you can wear denim all year around. I tend to live in denim shorts with a sweater, or cute white jeans with a fun top. There are so many new trends that I always tell people, stick to what you like. For me, that is a fun fray at the bottom of a jean, a cool utility looking pair, and of course denim shorts. Whatever you like to wear, dress them up or down with a fun heel or some cool sneakers.
The overall trend is back, and yes I know not everyone loves them, but if you want to do something different try this trend. This pair is from McGuire Denim, and are sexy and playful at the same time. I paired it with my favorite swimsuit from Solid and Striped, because that trend is also going strong. Last, these cute kicks from The Greats Brand, are not only fun but super funky too.
You can make white denim, like these from Mcguire work with about everything as well! The fray on the bottom makes them unique, and a simple button up and hat keep it light and summery.
We all know I love my animal print, and these shoes from Steve Madden are so dang cute.
A most certain for me, is high waist denim short. These work with a swimsuit, a sweater, and a cool blouse. The weather is so perfect in the summer to wear them all the time!
Sundry clothing in one of my favorites, and they have branched out into cool pants too. I love that these feel very utility but girly at the same time. I paired them with my new Arkyn adidas kicks, and a cool Ivy Park crop top from Nordstrom.
No matter what your style is, make sure to pick up the denim that you love and suits your personal style!
