snow day at big bear mountain

Is it just me, or does something feel a little different in mountain towns? I feel like they exist in some sort of parallel universe – one where people don’t live except for the winter months, where only three movies show at once and for a limited run of two weeks, and where your biggest shopping trips […]

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 + 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 […]
