Happy Friday! Just one week left until Halloween. Are you ready?
A while back, when Clare was still blogging [sheds tear], Clare did a Frida Kahlo-inspired makeup and hair look. Little did you guys know that I was actually the one doing all the hair and makeup for that look. She got a lot of feedback from girls wanting to know how she does her brows, so we thought it would be help to do a Beauty How-To: Brows Edition.
When I visited the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, I spotted stylish guys and gals everywhere. One of my favorite ways to find style inspo is through street style, so I decided to snap a few of the favorite outfits I saw.
I adore the matching round sunnies this couple wore. Because it’s still quite warm in L.A., some are still rocking summery looks. But her white midi skirt is a perfect for the fall transition. His plain grey tee and black skinnies complemented her sailor stripes nicely.
These stylish girls capture the laid back style of L.A. perfectly. I adore the striped tee and scalloped shorts combo, as well as the simple sleeveless tank blouse everyday skinnies.
These two also complemented each other. They kept it simple with neutral colors, but added visual interest with eye-catching patterns. Black-and-white is always classic and it adds a bit of edge. His Panama hat was the cherry on top.

Whoops! Halloween is just around the corner and you’ve yet to find a costume. It happens to the best of us! No need to worry, though, because I’ve put together four super-cute, easy and inexpensive (what better combination?) Halloween costumes for you guys.
1. I’m a mouse…duh.
My first look is definitely the easiest to make, and is a fun twist on a basic animal costume. I just used some red cardboard and white paint to create the Beanie Baby logo and tied it around my neck.
2. This recreation of Russell from Disney’s “Up” is most likely what I’ll be wearing on Halloween. Between the badges and balloons, this costume is so stinkin’ cute I can hardly stand it!
3. “Breakfast at Tiffanys,” anyone? Audrey Hepburn is the definition of all things classy and elegant. Almost everything I’m wearing I found in my closet, making this look extremely affordable.
4. I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream! I made this entire costume myself and decided to incorporate my dog, Olive, into the look. Isn’t she sweet?
Hope you all have an amazing Halloween full of fun, friends, and lots and lots of candy!
My friends Clare, Michaela and I shot a lookbook for transitional fall clothing for you guys! Take a look:
If you are interested in our outfits, stay tuned because each look will be featured in a separate post in the near future.
This weekend I headed over to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA). Whether I’m traveling back to the eighteen hundreds looking at historical costumes, or wandering through halls filled with modern art, I always leave the museum feeling inspired.
To show a simple daytime outfit, I thought I’d share my OOTD from my recent visit to the art Museum. For a modern look I paired an army green silk top with a leather mini skirt. Leather is possibly one of my favorite trends right now.
The adorable backpack trend is growing on me too! This teeny tiny black backpack was easy and convenient while walking through the museum.
To finish off the simple look I added some chain accessories, black booties, and little black socks.
Stay tuned for my next post: Street style shots of stylish art lovers at the museum!
Hey, Chicagoland friends and DC-Metro friends! Starting tomorrow, you can check out a FREE screening of this kick-ass documentary about kick-ass women doing awesome things.
Chicagoland: October 20 (that’s tomorrow)-October 24
D.C.-Metro area: October 27-31
Five funny, smart women drive 7,000 miles from Los Angeles to New York in 30 days, meeting and interviewing positive and powerful women leaders across a variety of lifestyles and industries. To name a few:
- • Astronaut
- • Mathematician
- • Pilot
- • Professional Athlete
- • Chef
- • Architect
- • Social Entrepreneur/Founder of Girls on the Run
- • The First Female Four-Star Admiral in the U.S. Navy
- • Miss USA 2012
Along the way, they share their insights about how women define their success, what it takes to be a woman in a position of power, and valuable advice on how to improve the female role in the workplace. They also turn the cameras on themselves, capturing their transformational journey and letting us get to know them as artists, as professionals and as people.
Sounds amazing, right? If you’re interested, learn more about the filmmakers and the project, and maybe you can bring the film to your school or town!
It’s finally starting to cool down here in SoCal which means it’s time to bust out the layers. Sweaters on scarves on dresses on tights—the list goes on and on, and the possibilities are endless.
Dresses are easily my favorite type of clothing, so I’m always looking for ways to wear them all year round. This plum cardi and adorable Army vest complemented my breezy cream dress perfectly.
This floral print scarf adds a fun pop of color, while my Alex and Ani bracelets and antique hand chain add a more boho feel to the outfit.
Like Amber, I have been completely obsessed with boot socks lately.
I’ve struggled to find a way to wear this floral tunic for the longest time, but when I threw this black sweater over it looked so effortlessly cute. Success!
My burgundy (oxblood/maroon/wine/deep red) jeans (how many names does one color really need!? haha) and grey suede booties went flawlessly with the outfit.
I finished off this look with my new favorite watch. Can we just take a minute to admire the amazing sparkliness of it? I’M IN LOVE!
How are you layering up for fall?
Happy Friday! If you had to pick between a roller skating video and a cannibalism video (you know, for Halloween), which would you choose?
Yeah, we couldn’t decide, either. You’re welcome.
Fall is a time for unpredictable weather: One minute it’s cold and damp, the next you’re sweating and pulling off your layers as fast as you can. On those perfect, warm days when I want to look cute and enjoy the sun while it lasts (Oregon is notorious for our rainy weather), my go-to outfit is simple: comfy, casual bottoms with a cute blouse.
These pants are my new favorites. Since they are made out of stretch denim, they’re super comfy. And the dark wash guarantees that I’ll be wearing them with all my fall and winter outfits.
The cutout back is my favorite thing about this shirt. Unfortunately it isn’t available in most stores right now because everyone is focused on fall sweaters. But come springtime you should be able to find a ton of cutout tanks all over the place.
