mucho mango

 

 

My sis and I have honed the science of borrowing clothes from each other, but, I must admit,  she is better at borrowing pieces from me more often. In order to mitigate this, I think I need to point her in Mango's direction, so she can load up on the above fringed jacket (instead of pinching my Max Mara), the faux leather cargo pants, and the wear-over-everything trench coat, so we can make things a little more equal!

This fringed sweater is seeing me through this cool and cloudy string.

puffer perfect


 

Can't believe we're blowing into puffer season, but at least we have unbelievably good options to choose from. This year it's all about a luxe leather one, pictured above, but my favorites are faux (i.e., refreshingly affordable at under $200) and hail from The Gap (60% off!), Avec Les Filles and Mango, below.

 


 

costa palmas

 

Coco and I escaped to Costa Palmas, Mexico, this past week, where we mixed business (shooting our next Ouiwant campaigns) and pleasure (bobbing in the bath-like Sea of Cortez). Tranquil and secluded, the new 1000-acre beautifully-designed beachfront resort is surrounded by organic orchards and farms, an 18-hole golf course, and desolate stretches of white sand. It's been a while since I've taken a decadent vacation (thank you, Covid-19), so I felt even more grateful for the luxuries of room service, sunset swims, and fluffed pillows before bed. Plus, Costa Palmas takes luxe to another level: Every detail from the poolside bar pillows to the beach club bathroom tiles to its in-room ice bucket is uniquely resplendent and masterfully thought-out. Coco and I could barely take two steps without whipping out our phones to take pictures. If you go, which I highly recommend you do ASAP, make sure to check out the stunning spa (the tiled pools and sumptuous relaxation area), The Nursery's delicious farm-to-table dining, and every breathtakingly beautiful nook and cranny of Milos. Of course, we did all we could to meet these vibrant surroundings with our own exuberant prints, stand out suits, and layers and layers of blingy and bright Jenna Blake Jewelry, pictured here. We snapped up a good amount of paradise-ready clothes from Permanent Vacation (like the Warm Clothing blouse and Lisa Marie Fernandez), and supplemented with Zimmerman, La Double J, and Mayle's newest collection of feminine skirts, tops and dresses (also here). Suits we sourced from La Double J (also here on sale), Eres and Anjuna. Keep a lookout for an upcoming Ouiwant x Jenna Blake post featuring all of our Costa Palmas style!










pull over

 

The pull-on pant trend comes just in the nick (of holiday-feasting) time! I love how they can be chic--and comfy as can be! Key to styling them is teaming them with more sophisticated-leaning pieces, like a tailored blazer and luxe knits. These versions from Vince, Co, The Row, and H&M are both flattering and forgiving.

This week gets off to an auspicious start, thanks to Net-A-Porter's highly-anticipated Friends and Family Sale, teeming with the most stylish fall pieces. Among my favorites: Ulla Johnson's gorgeous knits, above and below, these Joseph wide-legged leather trousers, this Nanushka ribbed knit bodysuit, this investment Givenchy, these faux leather Frankie Shop shorts, these light-wash Re/Done jeans, these See By Chloe booties, , and this Ganni wear-with-everything jacket. Soooo much more to see here!

 


 

friday night lights

 


I had my first dinner out at Nobu in Malibu in months last night--and the scene was quintessentially Nobu in Malibu: Cindy Crawford held court on the seaside deck, people glumly waited for a table, and paparazzi parked outside. Not only did I relish the baked crab rolls and artichoke salad, but also catching up with my girl friends, who shared a few tasty nuggets with me, like the provenance of the cute (Bottega-like) clutch for $34, below, (thank you, Molly!), the miracle-working, skin-transforming power of Sarah Chapman's overnight facial (here too), must-read books (The Vanishing Half, The Guest List, The End of Her) and the outfit-making $40 chain-link necklace, above. I shared some of my own treats, too, which I will offer to you: this amazing new-to-me line of sexy yet supportive sports bras that are around $38, these And Other Stories butt-flattering jeans, this standout fringed Cinq a Sept blazer, and these Missoni-spirited leggings. Happy weekend, all!

Just a colorful reminder that exceptionally cute, light-up-your-day kind of dresses, like the Sea New York patchwork dress, above, and the Warm floral print, below, are up for last-day discount grabs at Shopbop! Other super pretty pick-me-ups: this leopard-print Sister Jane, this Lost + Wander shoulder-tie dress, and this faux-leather Staud. Shop it all here!

 


 

staud x new balance

 

 

In the event you missed out on Staud x New Balance's newest (and already sold-out) sneakers, pictured above, I did find an equally compelling substitute in the men's section, in multiple color options, no less! My faves are the white and silver and navy and red.

my sister's sparkle

 

 

One of the best things about traveling to NYC last week with my sis was having 24/7 access to her bag of baubles--specifically one pair of hoops that--shhhhhh!--I might still be wearing now, back in L.A. They look a lot like the golden goodies, above, so versatile yet not at all basic, plus very reasonably priced. Then there's the gold cuff and the pinkie ring, below, which she gave to me for my birthday! Everyone thought it was by Brent Neale, but it was actually a vintage find. Other sparkles she had on hand (for me!) looked like this chunky chain link bracelet, these bangles and this cool tangled choker!
