the insta-cool life: Meet Olivia Lopez

This week we’re stoked to bring you interviews with five social media stars who just so happen to also be the stars of our BP. summer trend guide, the insta-cool life. We invited each one to nab her favorite BP. summer goodies, then style them with her own personal twist—with great results.

Today’s featured fave is Olivia Lopez, better known to her fans as @lustforlife (Instagram), globe-trotter, fashion plate and all-around girl crush. This L.A.-based fashion maven is one of the fashion world’s go-to girls when it comes to festival style, and she’s been featured in Teen Vogue, Vogue Japan, Vogue Spain, Nylon and about a zillion other cool magazines. We love her BP. Summer Essentials picks, mixing and matching unexpected styles that look effortlessly cool together.

How would you describe your style?
Classic with an edge, and always subject to where I am in the world.

What’s your trick for taking great Instagram photos?
Lighting and location are key components of a compelling Instagram photo. Choose places that are unique. Whether it’s a landmark, architectural site or a building that is beautifully decayed, exploring a new city or even a route you don’t usually take in your own neighborhood is always a great way to inspire and stay inspired.

Where would you wear this outfit?
I would wear this outfit en route to the airport with an oversized anorak and carry-on suitcase on tow, or grabbing coffee at Alfred’s on Melrose Place at home in L.A.

What are your tips for styling this outfit?
Sometimes the most minimal outfits make the strongest impact, so I would accessorize with dainty necklaces and a pair of nude sandals.

Please share one surprising fact about yourself.
I can’t deny a good cheese plate.

Summer Essentials, just snap a pic and tag it #nordstrombp. You just might find yourself on our in-store video wall, featured on the blog or showcased elsewhere in the BP. universe!
