What to Wear: LA Style Guide

Where to wear: Dinner at Gracias Madres followed by drinks at Melrose Umbrella Co. A few trips out to the west coast this summer meant channeling my inner California girl. I definitely didn't mind tapping into that Malibu Barbie vibe! Since I was out west for about two weeks I've rounded up all of my looks, a lot of which are on sale now!

What to Pack for 5 Days in the British Virgin Islands?

On said puddle jumper they not only weigh your luggage but you as well! And ...
