home for the holidays

Being with family this Christmas has been so good for my soul. With a hectic few months of holiday celebrations and traveling, slowing down for a few days was very much needed. I only get to see my mom and sister a couple of times a year, so it’s always really special. My mama always decorates […]

american blue jeans and diner coffee

You know what’s better than finding that perfect pair of jeans? Nothing. Ok, that might be a slight exaggeration, but you understand if you know how difficult it is to find well fitting denim. So now, imagine how stoked I was to finally squeeze into these hand-me-down Levi’s.

denim daze in texas

We usually spend Thanksgiving in Southern California, as we always travel back to Texas for the Christmas holiday. But this year we decided to visit my husband’s hometown of McAllen – a small Texas town near the border of Mexico. It’s a vast change from the hustle of such a big city as LA, so […]

denim + tacos

Two of my forever loves. I love wearing denim every way – high-rise jeans, chambray tops, button down dresses, patched jackets, and jumpsuits (just to name a few). It’s classic but with some laid back fun mixed in for good measure. Pair that with the most adorable taco shop in downtown LA (p.s. I think tacos get a bad […]

what i wore : pizza and bowling

I’m by no means a fashion expert, but that doesn’t mean I don’t like to have fun with it and experiment from time to time. Friday night we went out with friends for pizza and bowling, so I put together this outfit to wear. Like I mentioned here, I’m practicing taking self portraits when I […]
