CURRENTLY CRAVING

Looks I Love

The above look is made up of a bunch of items I’ve had my eye on for a while.  I think that all of the pieces together make up a perfect day-to-night look.  The Denim Jacket (now on sale!) helps to dress down the outfit for work and then the look can easily become more dressy for an evening out when you take off the jean jacket to wear the dress as is.  I am loving the mix-and-matched gold accessories because each piece has a lot of character. I also have my eye on these beautiful Blush Pumps because they are so versatile and classic.  Last but not least, the red Essie Nail Polish and Mac Lipstick really help to punch up this black ensemble.

SUMMER SCARF + BIRKS

Scarf

During the hot summer months in Los Angeles, it’s tough to add as many layers as I would like to my outfits.  Over the past few years, I’ve found a solution: I’ve become totally obsessed with scarves–to the point where my closet is full of them and I can never have enough.  I picked this comfy linen scarf out today as my layering piece and based the rest of my outfit around it.  From there, I decided to keep my outfit simple–comfy black linen shorts, a black tank and Birkenstocks (I can’t get enough of these sandals this season). I wrapped my giant scarf around my neck twice before tying the two ends in a knot to create an “infinity” scarf look.

DIKOKORE DESIGNS

I was very humbled when Heather Schultz, the Co-Founder of an amazing jewelry company called Dikokore Designs, reached out to me to collaborate with her on today’s blog post.  Heather and her boyfriend, Juan, founded Dikokore Designs– a company that is committed to the financial, educational and social empowerment of women and girls in Dikokore, Benin.  Heather was recently stationed in Dikokore with the Peace Corps and she was so inspired by the women there that she decided to create this charitable business to meld her love for fashion with her passion for helping others.
