Jeans & Heels


I've been all into tees & jeans these days. I love this effortless looks paired with heels and a clutch to dress it up a bit. I borrowed these adorable jeans from my friend Michelle of www.takeaim.nu. We always team up to shoot for each others blogs. Our favorite spot is to shoot on top of her roof with a killer view of downtown, incase you haven't noticed like every other look is there haha.

Go towards the light


Decided to try a pink washout dye for a fresh new summer look! It's been so so fun. But I'm a bit crazy about matching and my hair only seems to match black and white! My wardrobe has been quite limited because of it haha. In my life lately white is the new black! I went pretty dark this past winter and I'm ready to go towards the light again.

Classic contrast

Recently they had Rebecca Minkoff sample sale in LA, and man did I score! This jacket was originally $700 and I got it for 75, insane. I paired it with this little shift dress that also has leather contrast panels. They went together surprisingly well and make a classic yet funky look.

Boyfriend jeans > boyfriends


It seems finding a good pair of boyfriend jeans is almost harder than finding a boyfriend! They have to be the perfect amount of slouchy. Not too tight, not too loose. I went to tons of stores and tried on more pairs than I'd like to admit. Then a friend of mine recommended the gap, a store I never really venture into. But let me tell you their boyfriend jeans are on point! It's a style I think they have been doing long before the trend.

Now the other tricky thing about boyfriend jeans is how to wear them! A tight top seemed to look funny and so did an overly loose one. Here I went for a slightly loose basic v neck and dressed it up a bit with a fun bohemian kimono. With shoes I like to wear heels or at least a feminine flat to balance out this boyish look.

My apartment tour


I've been meaning to do a post on my apartment for awhile now! Please forgive the semi low resolution iphone pictures haha :). It's a little studio inside an adorable brick & pink building built in the 1930s.
This is my first time living solo. I'm a very social and extroverted type, so I wasn't sure I'd like it. But it's turned out to be SOOOO nice. I like to call it Dani's Bachelorette pad. I've been here for about a year now and I really love it.

The location is great. Just a couple blocks from me is Franklin Village where there's some awesome restaurants and bars. I'm walking distance from the main Hollywood area, and a 5 minuet drive to Los Feliz and Silverlake.

My decor is very "shabby chic". Lots of different & unique items, patterns, and pops of color. I simply love decorating. I got most of my furniture from the rose bowl flea or vintage shops. A majority of the artwork on my walls is by friends, relatives, and myself. The main things I was looking for while apartment hunting was wood floors and natural light. Those two factors are very important in creating a beautiful living space. My favorite thing about my studio is the view. You can see Downtown LA, Hollywood, and my palm lined street.

Hello Spring


What's more perfect for spring than a little floral frock?
I've been dreaming of beach days and dresses all week! For this post I'm bringing back some old favorites of mine, there's nothing like a classic that doesn't go out of style. I've had this Levi's jacket forever but I never get sick of it, perfect for adding a casual element to any outfit. This bag I bought years ago, The cognac color matches everything and the simple design makes it timeless.

Nude and Leopard

Since spring has started my need to wear black has definitely subsided. I've been loving these warm and neutral color palettes! I read somewhere recently that leopardprint was neutral, and I couldn't agree more matches with everything. Though spring has technically started it's still pretty cold in LA and I can't stop buying and cozy sweaters and dresses. This week in particular has actually been more chili than most of the winter!

Coach recently did a blogger campaign and sent me these shoes to try out. I haven't really worn Amy of their stuff for years except maybe a vintage bag, but I was pleasantly surprised with these shoes. They are super comfortable and really cute!
