I’m a firm believer that basic doesn’t have to mean boring. Sometimes a comfy white tee is all you need and a subtle pop of color can go a long way. I also have a total weakness for anything leather…just can’t get enough of it these days!

    I love those shorts! the details with the quilting and the exposed zipper is amazing! Totally recognize that fountain too, I’ve missed SF ever since I moved down to LA almost two year ago now. =)

    Stay fab! <3

    I was wondering where that blazer was from? So cute!!! I saw a similar one at Zara but I like your Theory one much better! A white t-shirt rocks my world any day. So great seeing you at ACRE/SF! xo

    Thanks!! I got this one from Bergdorf’s in New York, but I have seen it at Nordstrom too! It is called the “Laura” blazer by Theory. :)

    So great seeing you too!! x

    I always love the simplicity of black and white–and you took it to another level! It totally has that rocker chick/glam vibe and it works. The chanel flats are fabulous!
