I spotted this jacket at Calypso and immediately fell in love with it. The luxurious velvet and embellishment was exactly what I needed to add into my already overly eclectic wardrobe. It's a bit Jimi Hendrix, with an exotic touch. I paired it with an equally crazy pant by Just Cavalli. Print on print. Far out.

I've got more for you from chilly SWEDEN. Stockholm was always a MUST-SEE destination on my travel list. The fashion. The food. The music. It's just an incredibly beautiful city. A small city that felt huge. It wasn't until after days of taking public transportation, I realized I could have walked the whole town. I'd definitely do Stockholm Fashion Week again and again! From getting splashed on at Cheap Monday's show, discovering places that I can't even pronounce, to the violins and the drums harmonizing on the runway, it was refreshing and inspiring. The girls and boys wear black...minimal but in the best way. The streets clean and beautiful.
As you know, I was with my Swed's over at VideofyMe documenting our wild adventures through my smartphone. See more candid videos here.

The rest of my SOLUDOS Fall '14 campaign shoot is here! I've quickly started transitioning my Soludos esparadrilles for those chillier fall days. Not to mention, fell in love with their classic sneaker collection. I warmed up my suede smoking slippers with a lace sock, quilted mini skirt, and leather jacket. The pop of oxblood red just what I need against my dark fall wardrobe. Who said esparadrilles were only for the beach?
Then, there's the colorblock sneaker. Navy and oxblood red. They're so simple and so chic, you can honestly wear them with everything. They totally dressed down this voluminous white dress perfectly. So good that I also own them in Herringbone Black.
// Featuring SOLUDOS Suede Smoking Slippers in oxblood red + SOLUDOS Sandshoe Sneaker in Colorblock and Herringbone Black //
Also featuring: Rebecca Taylor quilted skirt, VEDA black jacket and navy jacket, KISUA white dress, Cutler & Gross sunglasses.

Can you believe some of these shots were from Coachella? So much captured and unpublished. Looking back, I realized I've totally skipped over these perfect summer moments. Stacking on the jewels, wearing my bikini as a top, getting the dusty desert sand on my boots. I'm so happy I'll be in LA for work this week. A little beach and sun won't hurt! And who knows, maybe I'll be slipping into another pair of shorts, even in October.

The golden leaves are certainly getting me in the knee-high boot mood! But honestly, styling tall boots definitely requires experimenting with layers and proportions. With the Sorel Slimboot, I decided to tuck in my boyfriend jeans, and keep the rest simple. A white tank, a plaid long coat, and very FRENCH black skinny scarf.

It's so exciting getting to celebrate the launch of ICON50 in honor of the 50 year anniversary of the FORD Mustang! Every time I think of the Mustang, I think of my Dad in the 70's, blasting "Mustang Sally" with the top down, and I think of those endless roadtrips with friends, cruising up and down the coast of California. My hometown.
I got a chance to take a peek of the new 2015 Mustang at the launch of ICON50, and it is absolutely gorgeous. I couldn't wait to get in it! Put the pedal to the metal. It feels extra luxurious, yet still has the down-to-earth, COOL vibe I feel when I think of the classic Mustang.
This year, Ford is celebrating Mustang's influence on POP CULTURE through ICON50. – from being in the movies, to making its way into our playlists. The campaign will inspire America's way of adventuring and unite the all-new pony car with cultural experts from Hard Rock Hotels and Casinos, Zagat, ESPN The Magazine and Mashable to discover the next wave of cultural drivers. They will also create a cultural road map to encourage Americans to get behind the wheel and explore.
A new survey commissioned by Ford as part of ICON50 found that 42 perfect of Americans can’t remember the last time they tried something new, suggesting they may have lost their sense of adventure. So what do I have on my mind for my next adventures? Driving to the woods of Long Island with friends for a spur-of-the-moment photo shoot. Pit-stops in Nashville to listen to my favorite band, and run around in cowboy boots during festival season. Coasting through Times Square to see the flashing lights, the moving pictures, our favorite movie stars. Hours on the highway just to get to the nearest In-n-Out burger. The opportunities and destinations are endless. Being on the road is one of the greatest things in my life. Being an LA native, I spent A LOT of my childhood in the car. Going places, seeing things. The anticipation and the excitement. But like my dad always said on our yearly family trips to Vegas: "The road is better than the inn." It's true. Cherish the journey.

There's a new accessory on my vanity that I throw on nearly everyday. That is: the watch. They're iconic. KARL LAGERFELD has perfected the art of the watch in beautiful golds, blacks, and silvers. Giving them a fresh, modern take. Here, you'll find my 3 favorite watches. Each piece a highlight in my look. Against a metallic, black/white palette, they really shine.
There's something I love about this oversized watch. Because it's large and heavy, it has that menswear feel. I paired it with a boyish ensemble with a feminine flair. A metallic silver tuxedo tunic and distressed black boyfriend jeans. I love a bare back, neutral look with a stand-out accessory. This KARL LAGERFELD Gold plated and Stainless steel watch screams edgy luxury.

This watch is a piece I can wear every single day. It's so versatile. Glamourous, but still low-key. The beauty lies in it's details. The brown textured lizard leather strap and rose-gold pave glitz dial. Even more beautiful up close. This day, I was right on schedule in a full IVORY look. Oversized hat, silk shift dress, and gold accessories. I like having a clean slate. This look felt fresh. Especially jumping into the brand new season!

Then, there is this extra sleek design to go with all the black in my wardrobe. It's black pave glitz dial and studded bracelet detailing makes it the ultimate downtown NYC girl's watch. Allowing me to jump from meeting to meeting, and not lose sight of time! I paired it with a simple black maxi, strappy bralette, and leather bomber jacket. Minimal. Sometimes it really is the details that matter.
