For the past year I've been pretty adamant about keeping a steady work out regimen. Beyond endorphins and feeling great, working out has helped me manage a steady schedule for life in general. Like traveling and eating well, working out has become one of my main contributors of sheer happiness. I'll share some of my work outs in a separate post, but while we're on the topic...

As you've seen from this post, I teamed up with QTEE.com to create two exclusive t-shirt designs. Both styles focus on the things that make me happy, the first on New York and LA, and the second one, seen in the photos above, are of the three things that I really just enjoy (and the three things that happen to pop up on my Instagram feed the most). Like exercise, coffee, peonies, and macarons provide me with a feeling of sheer happiness. The smell of coffee roasting, the look and beauty of peonies, and the taste of a decadent macaron... mm. I coupled all this with my favorite muscle tee cut, which is what I'm wearing above. I absolutely love working out in this muscle tee from QTEE, it's the most airy and freeing- perfect for exercise (especially on a hot day). Don't forget, QTEE also allows you to customize your t-shirt- get yours here!

Ah, kind of went MIA for a bit here! Sorry 'bout that. Last week was spent in NYC for a shoot with Joe Fresh and Vogue (can't wait to share with you guys the video), and the days before/after the trip I'd felt a little under the weather. Back in LA and in good shape now, and I couldn't feel better in cropped ruffly tops and tiered shorts. I'm all over things that are fluttery and lightweight, in all colors (and by all colors I mean white, black, navy blue, beige, etc), the easy, thin layers that make this heat much more bearable. I'd been on this top for a while now, but it took on a different look when paired with this tiered short, which splits up the top interestingly.

P.S. if you haven't noticed, I'm reincorporating songs on my blog and added a playlist to the right of this section. Every week I'll be rotating five songs I'm listening to on Soundcloud. Hope you guys enjoy!

Although usually a leather kinda girl, lately I've been gravitating towards suede accents. There's something about the texture that makes it the appropriate spring/summer accessory- suede has a gentler appearance in comparison to leather. It has that understated, easy-going chic, which is perfect for warmer days when dressing should feel more effortless I suppose. In the photos above, I added a little bit (or a lot) of suede for outerwear to balance the fringe knit and denim, and used a suede belt and boots in the same tonal family (taupes, camel and grays are my favorite colors for suede pieces) to wrap it all together.
