sir, I object!

Welcoming the most perfect denim pencil skirt in my life from Objects Without Meaning. Now I can successfully parade around in matching denim jacket and skirt fully canadian-tuxed out. Long weekend ahead of me. Lots to shoot and going to feel really french tomorrow at a film festival where my friend will be accepting an award for being rad and talented. More about that, tomorrow on my Instagram.

masculine chic living

July 18, 2014

First off, I am insanely overwhelmed by the YouTube welcome and am crazy shocked and how many of you have been following me for years accounting the old days when I vlogged with Teddy. Like shocked! Excited doesn't even come close to how I'm feeling about this journey - but don't worry, my blog will always be here x

Anyway, I wanted to leave the weekend with a little moodboard as I am in the process of trying to get my place looking less girly and more masculine. More homey, less stark.

YouTube newcomer

July 16, 2014

Guys, I'm shaking with excitement with my YouTube launch, but I'm going to be very transparent going forth in this post.

The past year I've definitely, and maybe discernibly, lost my interest in blogging. Things seemed stale, and the pressure to look a certain way to be relevant turned me off. I don’t want to sound ungrateful; this has all been an undeniably fruitful experience. But in the face of subjecting myself to criticism and praise, I no longer wanted to feel the detrimental effects of public approval. Since I’m being transparent, this affected me – a lot. Talking to other bloggers, I learned I wasn’t in this alone. So I knew I had to detach.

During the transition of my figuring myself out, I stopped formulating outfits, donated and sold a lot of clothes and accessories, wore less makeup, freed my mind of criticism and just like that, I no longer felt consumed by my blog. This unhealthy habit I've formed stemmed from my innocent love of creating and documenting.

So I picked up a camera and started recording myself. No photoshop, no pretty outfits, just me reminding myself every day to be true to myself and my friends. Now going back on a year’s worth of footage, I can watch myself grow tremendously personally, romantically, professionally, and creatively. I seriously can’t wait to share that all with you.

I hope my candidness about the industry serves as a reminder to everyone starting blogging or has been blogging for a long time to stay true to themselves.. Don’t be swayed by what’s popular and don’t buy into hype. Grow as much as you possibly can, because once I stopped comparing, I found myself growing.

Without further ado, my channel trailer:

backyard basics

July 15, 2014

Guys, I am launching something I've been working on for a year now. Tomorrow. Or Friday. I'm not sure yet because I'm so nervous!!! But prepare for great news this week.

Anyway, filling in space with an outfit post taken slightly candidly in my backyard while my friend was in awe of the light and colors out there. Totally never crossed my mind as a place to sit and chat.

Since the beginning of this year, I've pretty much narrowed out a majority of my clothes into a small closet with basics. Meaning, I don't wear anything other than some skirts, white shirts, and a handful of favorite dresses and pants. Anddd I'm so much happier with that decision.




Gant white shirt. Isabel Marant denim skirt. H&M oxford mules.

wishful wednesday: under $100 sale

July 2, 2014

This is one of my favorite times in the year. BBQ, cuddling, bare skin, and sales. Lots of them.
California natives like myself prefer to stock up on all clearances summer/spring rather than fall/winter. Why? Because it makes sense for our habitats and it's way cuter. Well, I scoured the web so you don't have to. My already impaired vision is suffering, so please, be happy I did this because I would be stoked if someone curated a list like this for me.
