Kicking it in Venice with Like to Know It!

It has been about six months since I joined the Like to Know it Family, and I couldn’t be more excited to be a part of the team. They have made shopping so simple for everyone, and with their newest screenshot technology shopping my looks plus thousands of other influencers couldn’t be easier.

Like to know it

Main Street in Venice is one of my favorite places, as it is filled with some of my favorite restaurants and shopping boutiques. When Like to Know it decided to do a fun pop up for their influencers and have a local artist do a fun mural, I had to stop by.

adidas gazelle sneakers

Of course, when I went it was so much fun to meet other women who work for the company and influencers that are also a part of the group. I definitely wanted to wear something that very much fit my personality, and so my favorite adidas gazelle sneakers were a go to.

Madewell tee

I also have been digging Madewell lately, which is J.Crew’s sister company. How cute is this Santa Cruz tee? I love that it has the year I was born on it, and that it really expresses my personality of my Cali roots. I simply threw on my favorite J.Crew bracelets to add some accessories.

J.Crew white denim

Besides my favorite sneakers, I have been living in my white denim from J.Crew. They are perfect with everything in the summer, and usually I put on a simple belt to add to the look. This one is also from J.Crew, but you can find a cool skinny belt anywhere! I couldn’t have had a more fun day with the team! Remember to sign up to Like to Know it, so you can continue to easily shop all of my looks!

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is Here!

It is that time of year again, and the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is about to begin. I have to say it is one of the best times of year for me. They have so many great pieces always, and usually I want them all. If you are a card holder you can already shop this event, but for the general population the sale starts on the 20th and you can get all kinds of amazing pre-fall pieces.

Cora Embroidered Minidress

One of my favorite lines is Free People, and this cute dress is perfect for the summer in Los Angeles. Come Fall, I will pair it with my favorite booties. Their pieces all have a fun boho feel to them, which is totally up my alley.

Panoma Print Pouch

I love pairing a fun dress with a clutch that is fun for summer. This one is available from Pixels. You can make your own on this site, and it is so much fun. Also, I layered bracelets for a fun twist. You can get all of these for under $25 each at Nordstrom.

Fun tassel earrings

I am totally obsessed with tassel earrings right now, and you can check out all of the fun ones that J.Crew has to offer. These are loud and colorful, which makes it more fun. When it comes to summer, I love to mix and match tons of colors for a festive feel.

'Sk8-Hi Slim' Sneaker

And now to my favorite red summer sneaks. I can’t seem to stop purchasing fun Vans this summer, and Nordstrom has a ton of cool ones. I don’t wear a ton of red, so I love putting it boldy on my feet!

Vacation All I Ever Wanted!

Well summer is here, and it is time to pack up and hit the road for some much needed vacation time. When it comes to packing, I am the first to say that I usually over pack, and wear hardly half of what’s in my suitcase. This past year, in traveling as much as I have, learning to cut back has been a must. Some of my best advice is to plan out outfits that can be mixed and matched. This way you keep your suitcase light (especially so you can purchase a few things)!

White denim jacket

One piece that is a really great buy is a white denim jacket. It goes with everything and can be dressed up or down. This one from J.Crew is just perfect. I can wear it on the plane, to dinner with a dress, and all throughout the trip layered over just about anything. Here I paired it with these totally fun and cute pineapple pants also from J.Crew. Again, my rule is to bring a light weight pant that is fun and colorful. I will wear these on the plane, to shop in the day, and even to throw on for a dinner at night with heels and a tank.

Denim top

Denim for days all ways around. How cute is this top from J.Crew as well? I love that it is denim, and has a cute little tie at the waist. It’s layered under my denim jacket for the day, and I’ll pair it in the evening with some flat sandals and a long maxi skirt to dress it up. I simply added a super fun rattan purse with pom pom details. I mean, this screams vacay, and is spot on trend wise.

Rattan purse with pom poms
Hello color! I am loving this off the shoulder top. Again, it can be paired with jean shorts, which are a must for me. These work all day everyday with almost everything. A fun top like this can work for a night out played up with accessories. It can also be paired down as I did here for a day of shopping the streets.

Off the shoulder top

Well, it wouldn’t be vacation without the shoes. My goal is one pair for the plane, like these cool Vans that can be worn during the trip. Usually I bring a second fun pair of walking shoes, and my favorites for these colorful looks are a simple Superga from Nordstrom. I usually also pack a good wedge heel for the night and a simple flat that can go with everything. If I am going to be working out, I will switch out one pair of day sneakers for my running shoes!

Happy Feet Everywhere!

From old skool kicks to fun new finds, this past month I found myself rocking a little of both. This past year, I partnered up with Happy Socks, and let me tell you they will make your feet dance. They have such a fun assortment of socks and underwear that are not only cozy but make a statement when you wear them. I love the retro polka dot feel of the spring collection below, and so I found it fitting to break out my favorite checkered Vans for summer. This skate shoe has been around forever, and is still one of my favorites.

Happy socks and checkered Vans

Speaking of throwing it back, the Vans Sk8 hi-low sneaker in all white is also a favorite of mine. They are affordable, cool, and definitely make my look a little more cool. Adidas has also made such a fun comeback with their “originals” this past year, and I haven’t met a color I didn’t like! This taupe gazelle is off the chart. It is the absolute perfect color to go with everything in my wardrobe.

When it comes to new snekaers that have been dropped, the technology continues to grow for sneaker companies, and they are making it harder and harder to chose a pair! I found this new adidas Tubular in pink. They are blending the past with the future by redefining sportswear for the street, taking inspiration from an iconic 93 runner. The Nike City Knife 3 Flyknit Sneaker, actually is a foldable and packable sneaker, and let me tell you for traveling it speaks to me. The colors are so fly as well, I feel like super girl when I wear these.

A little bit of fun design plus all white sneakers were just another added bonus. These new Nike Air Huarache SE remind me of wearing denim on denim. They are trendy and fun, and litearally are also so comfortable. For me, when it comes to brunching, I love mixing a fun long skirt with a preppy pair of white sneakers. These Tretorn for J.Crew do just that. I also will pair them with all my fun Fourth of July looks coming up.

Everyday, Game Day

Take me out to the Ball Game and Brunch!

Well, it is that time of the year and Major League Baseball is back in full swing. Nothing beats going to a great ball game during the day in the summer. One of my favorite things to do, is have a hot dog, and enjoy the weather. Being born in Pittsburgh, the Pirates will always be my favorite team, but don’t get me wrong, I will go to any ball park and enjoy some baseball.

Besides baseball season, summer time calls for brunching in the city almost every weekend. I can never pass up a good mimosa and eggs benedict. From a baseball game to brunch, I have you covered this month!

Layered look for the ball game

When it comes to a game outside, I love to make sure that I have layers. This denim skirt is perfect for the weather and a simple tee is great with a jacket that you can layer around your waist. Always have a light jacket, as usually the weather will change or the sun goes down and the shade can make it cool.

Pirates hat for game day

Checker Vans

Comfy sneaks and a good hat are also a must. You will be walking all day, so make sure you have a good pair, and these checker Vans are so cool girl. Also, this hat from Topshop is not only cute for the game, but it has my Pirates logo so I am totally representing my team. The Rails is making the best coats. Not only is this perfect all summer long, but the print is fun and on trend.

Maxi skirt

Thanks to J.Crew this skirt and denim combo is one of my favorites. I am the biggest fan of a maxi skirt, and I love to pair it with a simple chambray top to keep it low key. This whole look will be on rotation, as you can definitely make this skirt a go to for a cocktail event as well.

Straw Hat

Straw hats make me smile in the summer! You can wear them to brunch, to the beach, travel with them, a totally must have piece. This one from Nordstrom is also under $50!

Tretorn white sneakers

Clutch and bangles

Sneakers with skirts are the new uniform, and these all white Tretorn’s are super cute and go with everything. I also love this cute clutch and bangle set from J.Crew as well. They are very summery and easy to throw with any look from day to night!

Cheer to baseball and brunch!
