the strapless dress

j.crew strapless dress

Last summer, it was all about the one-shoulder dress. This season both shoulders come out to play! The strapless dress, formerly reserved for nighttime festivities, are more than ever sunshine-ready, particularly these from J.Crew, Lisa Marie Fernandez, The Reformation, Tory Burch, and 1901.

A t-shirt that's sophisticated enough to whiz through a business meeting is a t-shirt I'd employ full-time! Another benefit: it works extremely well off duty. Made of soft cotton, embellished with puff sleeves and lace trim, it rings in at less than $100. Nice job! You can find it here.

basket bag 2.0

basket bag trend

Last summer's basket bag trend weathered the winter and is now springing up in fresh and desirable iterations. In case there's any confusion: straw is as versatile as leather, as Alexa Chung proves in these snaps. I love these just-out, standout totes from Cult Gaia, Arnaz, Loeffler Randall, Giselle, Miu Miu, Asos, and Nordstrom.

 

sonoma style


Last weekend my husband and I ventured to Sonoma County, where we glamped in a decked-out Airstream, trekked in a Redwood forest, dipped our toes in the Russian River, and sipped lots (and lots) of fine wine. The variable weather--toasty days, chilly nights--called for a carry-on packed with everything from a bikini to a down jacket!  Somehow, I managed to get it all right, starting with the Doen dress, above, which I wore, post-forest hike to lunch at Stumptown, plus these perfectly stretchy, day-to-night Mother jeans, this floral winery-worthy H&M blouse, and these ready-for-action Isabel Marant sneakers. Other standout pieces suitable for Sonoma: this one-shouldered Ulla Johnson top, this cozy Vanessa Bruno (throw it over everything) cardigan, and this made-for-layering army jacket by The Great.

doen do


You've heard me sing their praises before but it turns out I'm far done on Doen! The cult LA-brand just set up a pop-up shop in Brentwood, and not surprisingly, everything is almost already sold out. (The store will be open through 4/18.) When I popped in earlier this week, I tried on the above cardigan--perfectly chunky, with the rare ability to top practically anything--but, alas, it was sold out in my size. Thankfully, I found one here. Other dreamy pieces I'd like to snap up: this floral maxi, this wrap dress, and this ruffled blouse.

spring stockpiling


When my car thermometer hit 95 degrees yesterday I thought it must surely be broken. But it wasn't! Forget spring--it feels like summer in LA! Thanks to Shopbop's Sale Event of the Season (20% off orders under $500; 25% off $500+), we can put some more sunshine into our warm weather wardrobe right now, via flirty dresses like the ones above by Lisa Marie Fernandez (the pink one can be found here), plus these lovelies by Zimmermann, Valencia & Vine, Ganni, and Veronica Beard. Also super desirable: this jumpsuit by Faithfull The Brand, this eye-catching blouse by Warm, these striped Loeffler Randall slides, and this Likely fun woven bag. Check out all the offerings here.

travel companions


My crazy wanderlust has me winging it to places both near and far (Sonoma! Cabo! Antigua!) in the next few weeks. And for these travels, I'll be packing this new stylish yet immensely practical (under $100!) Longchamp makeup bag that doubles as a wear-everywhere clutch. Also coming me with across various time zones: this indestructible yet sleek-looking Away suitcase, recommended by a jet-setting friend (it can be hand-painted monogrammed, Goyard style, or embellished with these cute letter stickers); this super hydrating, glow-inducing True Botanicals Nutrient Mist (I'm obsessed with this stuff!), and these miracle-working, post-flight bloat-reducing probiotics by The Nue Co.
