BEACH DAYS

There is nothing better than a Saturday spent at the beach.

One of the best perks of living in California is being close to the beach.  Surprisingly enough, I don’t make it to the beach all that often because it’s pretty much an hour away after you factor in traffic, but when I do they are always the best days!  There is nothing like relaxing on the sand and getting your feet wet in the vast ocean waves.  I have a lot of suits and cover-ups in in my closet, but the best are always the ones that bring a sense of luxe and elegance to the shore.  I love this floor-length black and white one because it’s versatile enough to romp around at the beach and then to get some skinny spicy margs at a nearby watering hole, especially with a little dose of bling on my feet!  Shop the look here:

Some of you may have followed along on Instagram last week as I hosted a super fun event we called a Candy Crafternoon at my friend Andrea’s boutique in Beverly Hills, A.Sweet Boutique (they are giving my readers 25% off!  Use the code ASWEETPSW when you shop the site!)  She sells a mix of contemporary fashion and fashionable candy so we came up with the idea of throwing a shindig for a few of our closest gals to design their own look out of candy and wrappers!  It was so much fun!  We dined on the most delicious cake from Duff’s Cakemix and some sweet sips from Club W.  Shop my summer party look below:

Who doesn’t love a classes white on white ensemble?  There is nothing that says summer to me more, especially when you add a pop of color through your accessories.  I love these lace-up teal heals and try to wear them whenever I can because they make a sexy statement, even when you’re grabbing a cup of joe!  The neutral boyfriend sweater and leather clutch were the perfect necessities to top off the look on a gloomy LA day.  I also busted out my chic new rose gold choker – in love!  Shop the look below:

WATCH: 1on1 WITH PHOTOGRAPHER GRAY MALIN

I started this series because too many people in my life I felt were inspirational with life stories untold.  I am so happy to be surrounded by people who are following their dreams and doing what they love on a daily basis and really making things happen for themselves, which brings me to my new guest, Gray Malin!  I have been fortunate enough to call Gray a friend for a year or two now, but I have also remained a steadfast fan of his work – he is a famous photographer who documents all of his amazing travels.  From the Prada Marfa photographs, to my favorites in Capri, and his recent Antarctica shots – he is certainly one of a kind.  Make sure to shop his work on MaisonGray.com and OneKingsLane.com.

My favorite piece of advice from Gray: “Make sure to knock because the door isn’t going to open on it’s own” in reference to asking for help in following your dreams!

I love a classic preppy look for date night because well, my husband is a sucker for the preppy look!  The skirt is obviously a statement-maker so I paired it with a low key tank since our weather has been super warm and these versatile new heeled sandals.  I thought I would add the bling for an extra dose of sophistication.  Shop the look:

BETTER THAN BLUE

Some days you feel better than others and when I feel great I tend to dress more casual.  Ironic, I know.

After a super fun shoot on Friday (more details coming soon), I was in for a great weekend!  I felt confident, accomplished and relaxed.  I was ready to chill out and that’s exactly what I did!  I let myself off the hook of work for a few days, played with my puppy, spent time with my husband and have been catching up on one of my new favorite shows, Homeland (that we have been admittedly binge watching the past week!) and it sure feels nice!  With a little boost of confidence comes the urge to dress chic, but casual at the same time.  I wore this comfortable, effortless look on Saturday night to a fun BBQ at a dear friend’s house.  Get the details below:

Whether you are headed to a winter or summer wedding, a hot date night or even a fun day with the girls shopping, look for a versatile dress like this one to take you through the year.  With the quick change up of accessories and shoes this can go from day to night.  I originally thought of this dress as perfect for a black-tie wedding so I paired it with my chicest pair of heels, a statement bracelet and studded leather clutch, but it will go great with your hair up in a pony and in flat sandals too – even over a swimsuit if you are going somewhere chic after the beach!  The versatility lies within the material and the cut.  Shop the look below:

When you need a ladylike look for lunch for the girls or a few meetings, try a midi skirt while the temps are blazing out.  Pair it with heels and a button-down top like a did for ultimate sophistication or a tee and flats for a day at the office.  You’ll even get wear out of this one during the fall with a chic cropped sweater.  I wore this around LA and felt elegant and chic.  Shop the look below:
