It should be illegal to complain about the weather when you live in Southern California, but if I'm allowed one gripe, it would be the lack of warm nights. It's not that they don't ever happen, but even in the summer the evenings can get brisk once the sun sets. There is one place, though, just two hours away, that's notorious for its balmy nights, and that's Palm Springs. I was out in the desert last weekend for Coachella, and was reminded just how nice the warm...

Romper: H&M, Shoes: French Connection, Necklace: Madewell, Bracelet: Giles & Brother, Purse: Similar here & here As much as I love the color red, it has never flattered my complexion. I'll sneak in the occasional red nail polish or red lip, but that's usually as far as it goes. So I've been trying to incorporate some options that fall close on the spectrum, like burgundy, blush, or in this case, burnt orange. These shades tend to complement more skin tones, and because they're more muted, they can be worn casually without making a bold statement. The warm hue makes this romper perfect for summer, and, with a jacket...

Line & Dot Romper, Brandy Melville Crossbody Bag (similar here), ShoeMint Heels (on sale!), Madewell Tracecraft Bangles, Lancome Lipstick in "Lucky Kiss" I spotted this outfit a few weeks back and fell in love. The skirt alone had me sold, but I was even happier to discover that it was a romper, which meant no need to worry about shopping for a top to match. The bright, bold print couldn't be better suited for summer, and the asymmetrical cut makes it all the more unique. I opted for a dressier look this time by adding heels for a night out to...

Crochet Lace Romper with this Camellia Lace Bralette underneath, Ray-Ban Aviator Sunglasses, Madewell Tracecraft Bangles + Madewell Glider Bangle, L’Oreal Nail Polish in “Tangerine Crush” New York weather is funny this time of year. One minute you're convinced it's summer, only to be hit with a surprise thunderstorm seconds later. I experienced this first-hand last week after getting caught in the middle of a few unexpected downpours. And to make matters worse, I had packed nothing but sandals, quickly killing any shot I may have had at passing for a New Yorker. Fortunately, the clouds soon parted ways, allowing for the most ideal visit to Central Park. The weather couldn't...

Romper, Brandy Melville Crossbody Purse (similar here), Giles & Brother Cuff (similar here) The number of rompers I've been sporting lately has me wondering if I belong in the '70's, but with summer on the horizon, I couldn't bear to pass on this one. It reminded me of a more affordable version of this one that I'd been eyeing for several months, so I snatched it up the moment I spotted it. The ruffled edges and soft, weightless material remind me of pajamas. But this look is perfectly acceptable for wearing in public, so I plan to do a whole lot of just...
