Currently Obsessed

{Joie Sunday Vintage Croc-Embossed Tote}

I scored this leather tote bag from the Joie sample sale for under $50 (originally $355!)
It is the perfect carry-on for my upcoming trip to the Florida Keys - 1 month until vacation!

Bye Studio, Hello Townhouse

{Hermosa Beach Pier}

My boyfriend Greg and I are moving into a townhouse in the Hermosa Beach/Redondo Beach area this weekend! 
As excited as I am for a bigger place, I will miss my studio. It was my first apartment that was all my own (for about 6 months) and it taught me independence. Now with Greg in LA and our little Zoey kitty, my family needs more space - a 2 bedroom townhouse to be exact! I can't wait to decorate the new apartment. I'll be sharing decor photos so stay tuned!

Must Have: Crop Tops



One of the biggest trends for the summer is the crop top and it's continuing into Resort 2014.
These midriff baring shirts come in everything from solids to prints, crochet details and cut-outs.
Outfit them this season with high-waisted skirts or denim cut-offs. See a few of my favorites below.
