This look is a version of my summer uniform. When I’m not in a breezy sundress, I love a great pair of printed shorts. It’s been 90 degrees this week in LA, so I can’t imagine wearing much else lately!
Since the busy print becomes the focal point of the outfit, I typically pair colorful shorts with a simple nude or metallic sandal for daytime. For this look, a white leather jacket and pumps add a bit of dressiness that help transition the style to evening. I’ve had these Tibi shorts for years, but each summer the colorful ikat-inspired print is always back in style, go figure! There are plenty of colorful short options this season – I’m also loving these, these and these.
What is your summer staple?

I hosted my shopping and cocktail event at Theory here in LA last week and had a wonderful time. Thank you to everyone who came to celebrate the Spring/Summer collection, and to the sweet team at Theory!
I wore a white Theyskens’ Theory leather crop top – you may recognize it from some past outfits. Paired with a black pencil skirt and my Theory pumps, the look was super sleek and minimalistic yet still party appropriate. I loved how perfectly the leather panels on my skirt matched the top. As much as I love bright color, sometimes you just can’t go wrong in black and white.
Check out the rest of the event photos in my Facebook page album. Have a great weekend -I’ll be spending mine outside in this gorgeous 80 degree weather!

I wore this look to the rewardStyle conference in Dallas a couple weekends ago. The conference was so fun and informative – bloggers, brand representatives, and the rewardStyle team all met to discuss our new projects and plans. Of course, it wouldn’t be any kind of blogger convention without the most stylish outfits, plenty of cocktail hours and macaron displays. I loved hanging out with my favorite girls – Kat, Julia, Kristin, Bethany, Ashley, Jena, Devon and Mara (check out their blogs, they are all amazing!)
For the conference panels, I wanted my look to be casual and summery, but my Theory blazer (a constant spring staple in my closet) added a bit of professionalism. My secret to fitted printed pants: tuck a leotard underneath them. Oh, and do you recognize these Schutz shoes from my last post? Get used to them – I can’t seem to wear anything else lately!
I loved Dallas – parts of the city actually reminded me of LA. Hopefully I’ll come back to explore the city, since most of the conference was spent in the Zaza Hotel, where I stayed with Kat and Kristin. If you’re ever visiting Dallas, I totally recommend this hotel. The decor is a chic mix of art-deco and jewel tones, and the Zaza Pool is an Old Hollywood-esque lounge spot sponsored by Veuve Clicquot that turns into a DJ’ed party zone when the sun drops.

I’ve been wearing shorts nonstop recently – the LA weather has been so beautiful this week. I wore this look for an afternoon of shopping on Melrose Avenue, and it’s a great example of a high-low pairing between inexpensive pieces and pricier accessories. I saw these palm tree shorts in the window at Forever21 and thought they were adorable, especially for hot summer days (and you probably know by now how much I love a good print!) Paired with my “Made in California” tee, how much more west coast does it get?
True to my overdressed nature, the look wasn’t complete without some glamorous accessories. I added lace-up heels, a wide-brimmed hat and one of my favorite Miu Miu bags. I’ve probably worn these shoes every other day since I bought them two weeks ago – They’re so comfortable, and I love how the edgy studs add a bit of attitude to the pale pink ballerina laces. What do you think of this look?
I can’t wait to host my event at Theory tonight – I hope to see some of you there!
