Some snapshots taken over the last month around Palm Springs & Palm Desert.

Who doesn't love a little micro-sculpting to the derriere, legs, and midsection? DL 1961 Premium Denim delivers just that in their new 4-way stretch denim, the instasculpt. I'm wearing the DLPRO modal stretch which uses less energy, dye, and water. The fabric is also fifty percent more absorbent which keeps you cooler in the summer months. Layered them with a simple tank and throwback birks that I owned in every color/style in high school. Even the super birki red clogs — was a bonafide junkie for sure.

Feedback on this bralette on instagram (note that it was laid out flat on a table):

"Who's boobs are this small?" 

"I think that's made for a doll or barbie." 

"What is that, a bra for ants?"

"I'm so confused, like, how do you even wear that? It looks like a napkin." 

"Can we get a pic of how it fits? Need to see this."

Well, I've at least solved the latter of the five, I hope? Oh, and my boobs are this small, boom! How good is my instagram feed? A very reliable source of laughter — never disappoints (if you can take things with a grain of salt, that is). 

Enjoy the weekend! xo

Best sheets, hands down, are Pure Beech. Ecologically friendly, sustainable, and contain no pesticides or toxic substances. Alternate between their jersey knit and sateen sets.
Sold at Bed Bath & Beyond. 

Spring party pants from last year fresh in from the dry cleaners.

What's always in my (mini) bag? Sunglasses (prada wired-rimmed aviators shown), EOS lip balm, and Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupte in creamy neutral beige. Love to keep my lips hydrated throughout the day with EOS. Also makes a great base before applying lipstick.

Update to my choker collection with this anarchy necklace from Vanessa Mooney.

Isabel Marant iconic Carol sandals from last spring coming back into the rotation.

Perfect Isabel Marant Mia lace bralette for spring layering. 

Fell in love with Molton Brown London's japanese orange scent when I stayed at The Parker in Palm Springs. 

 Tatcha cleansing oil has been my go-to for the last few months. Removes even the most difficult waterproof make-up with ease. 

I've recently been turned onto this genius cream from Algenist. It provides a suppleness that helps soften the lines around my eyes. 

Super hydrating and very affordable hand cream from EOS. Use morning and evening to prevent hands from drying and cracking. Layer under socks in the winter months at night. 

My Mum recently turned my onto StriVectin's intensive concentrate. Haven't noticed a wrinkle reduction but it has lightened hyper-pigmentation spots.

The hype is true! Clarin's intense bronze self tanning tint is definitely the best. Receive compliments on how natural my tan looks.

I use Dr. Denese's hydroshield on days that my skin is feeling extremely dry. Great after a beach/pool day.

Happy spring! xo

Cami - Clover Canyon, Shorts - Rails, Clutch - Givenchy, Sandals - Celine)

Hello spring! Or summer if you're in Southern California — record breaking high today of ninety-five plus. Inspired to break out of my bubble and head to the beach here in a few. Onto my look — have never really been a floral girl but these shorts from Rails have pretty much converted me. Wore them with a perfect neoprene cami from Clover Canyon and recycled sandals and accessories. xo

(Sunglasses - Karen Walker, Adrianna Maxi Dress - DVF, Bag - Chanel, Shoes - Converse)

For part two of my collaboration with DVF, I chose to style her Adrianna maxi dress. Have been smitten ever since Karlie donned it on the spring 2014 runway. A major fan of its versatility — can be dressed up with sandals or relaxed with converse. Chose the latter with the inspiration being Coachella. So if you see a chick in this look, it's me. Come say hey!
