IN THE NUDE

Ive had such a fun experience collaborating with Nordstrom Rack! Recently I attended the 
private shop event at the new Brooklyn store! I was able be one of the first to hunt the racks and find some of my favorite designers for unbelievably low prices! Im typically drawn to classic pieces and high quality basics, so when I came across this perfect Vince tee and Alexander Wang silky shorts for 75% off, I truly felt like a genius, a shop genius!

UNISEX

I don't know what it is about shopping for basics in the men's department, but its something that my girl Crystal and I have been really loving lately. There's something about the relaxed, cool look of an a slightly oversized mens tee. While shopping for some basics we came across these sweat shorts at H&M. I roll them up a couple times and wear them low in the front for the prefect relaxed look. Pair them with some classic, good quality pieces for a casually tailored look. I never skimp on the accessories either... especially in the handbag and jewelry!

EMBELLISHED CLASSICS

Hi Everyone! Spring is definitely in full effect around here! I wake up to baby birds singing outside of my window everyday lately.... and to a new a baby bunny hopping around my living room! Yes, if you haven't seen via my Instagram, I recently adopted Bao a little friend. It was about time, and now he has a little buddy to keep him company. I can't believe how well they get along. It melts my heart. 
I love these new suede drawstring shorts and embellished denim jacket! Two classic designs with really cool twists, that make them super unique! I wore my new Angelic top, the perfect flowy option that everyone needs in their closet; and unique accessories like this new necklace and high top espadrilles! For me, is really all about the details and classic pieces. 
I hope everyone is ready for Easter! I know my bunnies are! xx alex

SUMMER LEATHER

Hi Everyone! Last month you may have seen I partnered up with Nordstrom Rack for a private shopping event with other fab bloggers in San Francisco! At the event, I picked up these classic Birkenstocks. You all know how much I love styling them! I was stoked when I came across them at NR, and for much less than I had seen them for anywhere else! 
Here is an everyday look that is very typical for me. 
Black, white, clean lines and a pop of color with my mini bag.
I feel like a genius when I score a designer item for a ridiculous price. Make sure to share your best @NordstromRack finds on instagram by tagging #shopgenius

HAPPY BIRTHDAY BAO!

It was Bao's birthday this past week, so we took him to the beach for a little picnic celebration, complete with a handmade party hat just for him! 
It shouldn't be a  surprise I had a party for him, you know im overly in love. 
He doesn't like to leave the house much, but I think the more we take him out, the more comfortable he's becoming with it. He can't be out for too long, as he seems to get a bit overwhelmed with all the commotion he isn't used to.; but because we only live a block from the beach, it's easy to hop on our beach cruisers with Bao in my basket, (made specially for pets) and get back quickly if we need to! 
He was definitely spoiled today. We treated him to all of his favorites! Corn tortilla, fresh corn, kale and a cookie made just for rabbits; though we only allowed a few bites of each.  We brought sandwiches along for ourselves which he managed to sneak bites from too...  
I hope he had a good time! He seemed to be enjoying himself! Though it may have just been the fact that we had all his favorite treats for him with little restriction. 
Happy Birthday little boy! xx
