It's still feeling quite summery here with rose-colored accessories, lace over cropped tops, and high waisted skirts. I don't think I've ever met a suede skirt I didn't like, but this one from Jennifer Kate might be the best yet. If I could I would hoard all the colors available because the waist, subtle scallop hemming and zipper make this one perfect. I'm looking to bring the skirt into fall (cannot come sooner) with a leather coat or snuggling it under a mock-neck, oversized knit. For now with the days consistently reaching over ninety degrees, I'll stick with my favorite, barely-there clothing articles from StyleSaint. It's a no-brainer, like ice cream in this weather.

Climbed down to the edge of a hill for a view of the sprawl right before catching dinner... sometimes the flatness of LA can feel a bit lackluster, but there's also something comforting about being able to see how far it spans when you're just a speck in the middle of it. It's a shame the sun is setting earlier and earlier as September progresses, but I can't say I'm not excited for my favorite season to come. As it is almost always a time of intense reflection for me, I'm welcoming it with open arms.

Upkeep

I get a lot of questions about how I maintain my brows and where I get them 'done' pretty often. Brows are huge (literally) right now and I'm so glad we've ditched the unnervingly thin eyebrows circa early 2000s. More on the filling and shading part, but since then I've let them grow into their natural shape/form. I've tried threading a couple of times for upkeep but I don't like the feeling and I'm rather lazy even making the trip. To save myself the money and time, I use this wondrous little thing from The Brow Gal. Not only is it precise, the scissors are compact and light and surprisingly easy to use- you can definitely maintain your shape and keep the tiny strays away as long as you don't mind using it often (I usually trim every other three days). In addition to convenience, this saves your eyebrow hairs from being over plucked, which is a good thing for the serious brow lover. Thought I'd share!

Made In America

Labor Day Weekend went down in quite a bit of Bud, denim, and sunshine. My girlfriend Trang and I spent the official last weekend of summer roving through the streets closed off for Made In America, enjoying the first-ever music festival held in DTLA. In an attempt to save my skin from tanning any more than it did while in Jamaica, I wore a pair of high-rise denim legging from AE on the first day and a pair of dark stretch overalls on the second day. Yeah, sounds kinda crazy with it being a 90-degree weekend but I was comfy and on-the-go, I hardly even noticed.

After sharing some of my styling tips for autumn to press/media at the festival, I was off to bask in the music. I know Kanye and Imagine Dragons were the big 'liners of MIA but I was mostly stoked to see Weezer. "Perfect Situation" = sent a wave of nostalgia over me.

Grabbed some shrimp and mushroom tacos from Guisados, which also just opened on Spring St., not too far from where MIA was held. PSA: if you're a fan of horchata, you have to have to have to get it at Guisados. (Side note, they also offer it with a splash of espresso!)

So happy to have wrapped up my festival-centric summer at MIA catching Capital Cities, Iggy Azalea, Kendrick, Imagine Dragons, Weezer, John Mayer and Kanye and meeting new people. My favorite moments had to have been Spence of Capital Cities absolutely killing it with the trumpet and John Mayer doing his thing, interchanging instruments- what a talented dude. Thanks AE!
