Bohemian Picnic
























With summer just around the corner it is time to pull your oversized tunics and bohemian accessories out of your closet. I recently designed (decor and florals) and modeled in a free people inspired styled shoot. We wanted to do something eclectic yet rustic with horses and beautiful light. The shoot was taken at my families country property and event venue, Devine Ranch. My pretty ponies Norman and Shorty had fun playing in the tall grass. And all of the girls enjoyed wearing dresses and accessories from Free People. I hope you enjoy.

Devoted to Denim






{Eileen Fisher Jacket, Lucky Brand Blouse, Citizens of Humanity Jeans, Rag & Bone Boots, Urban Outfitters Hat, Michael Kors Watch, and Michael Kors Clutch}


A great pair of denim jeans is like a girls best friend. My personal favorite are these dark wash stretch from Citizens of Humanity. They seem to just slip right on and become my second skin, plus they go with a lot of things. This is the type of outfit that I wear on a daily basis. A good hat to cover up the lack of time spent styling my hair, lots of denim, and Rag & Bone. It is a great look for traveling, lunch dates, or casual fridays at work.

The 2014 Academy Awards last night was hilariously entertaining thanks to Ellen DeGeneres. The fashion on the red carpet was great as well. I loved the deep navy blue on Amy Adams, the sincerity and goofiness that always accompanies Jennifer Lawrence and appearance of my favorite couple expecting parents Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis.

Dempsey Malibu Living

Watch this video for more details

Architectural Digest did a beautiful cover story on Patrick Dempsey's modern yet naturally cozy Malibu home. The home was originally designed in 1968 by Frank Gehry as an artists studio residence. When the Dempsey family moved into their new home they called upon Scott Schrader to rework his magic on the homes acreage. I love the elements that Schrader put in: a big outdoor kitchen/dining area, farm to table garden, and room for the Dempsey's animals. For the decor Dempsey worked with designer Estee Stanely, who had done their last home. Estee's work is great because she has the ability to create livable art. She turned this modern loft home into a cozy space with the use of antiques, natural fibers, and playful accessories.

Natural Beauty

Jennifer Lawrence is such a natural beauty and Dior shows the world this in her new campaign for the fashion house. I love to see women who are confident without all of that makeup. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle and applying minimal natural makeup is the best way to look radiant in my opinion. Here are the steps I take to gain this Jennifer Lawrence fresh faced look:

1. Start with a light BB Cream like my favorite from Bobbi Brown 

2. Use a lighter shade of concealer for contouring

3. Apply mineral face powder with a large brush for light coverage

4. Use neutral toned eye shadow with a light shimmer being sure not to go to dark 

5. Big eyebrows are in so let then grow a little bit then use this Dior pencil to enhance their shape

6. Pink hues on the lips are the best for this look and I love Chanel Rouge Coco LipShine in Evasion

NYFW F/W 14


Long sleeves on short skirted dresses are a great way to keep the look from being to sexy while also showing off your figure. The detailing on the Vera Wang is incredibly beautiful and the sheerness is very sexy. I liked the Michael Kors belted dress. It was fun and reminded me of modern wild west saloon attire. The 1920's flapper trend was still evident in many collections and I loved the little number by Jenny Packham. You may not see Princess Kate in this dress but I would wear it in a heart beat.  


The Ralph Lauren show was my favorite this year. Both dresses I picked out above are to die for. The long sleeve slate grey is perfect for a classy sophisticated look. And I would say to keep an eye out for the blush pink cape dress on the red carpet. The Kaufmanfranco show was also amazing and I thought the ripped silver devil of a gown that walk down the runway was pure creative genius.

NYFW F/W 14


Loving these bold but feminine looks from NYFW. The softness of the pink and sheer white combines with black for a naturally gorgeous juxtaposition. And who wouldn't love the show shopper of a Zac Posen gown… you will be seeing that one on the red carpet.  


Big cozy sweaters, tall boots, and button down jackets are perfect for the winter storms that are ragging outside. Although it may only be raining in California compared to New York's snow storm I would wear all three of these outfits… plus I love a large tote.
