Office Style :: The Girls of SXSW

For the first post in our new series on “Office Style,” we didn’t have to look far for inspiration…just a few blocks away actually. We headed to the SXSW Headquarters in Central Austin (across the street from Whole Foods’ corporate offices, making this quite possibly the coolest creative intersection in Austin) to catch up with […]

My Life, Styled :: Breakfast In Bed

With my due date just five weeks away and all of my styling jobs wrapped, I’m starting to take it a little easier and enjoy these last few weeks while this little one is still in my belly. (From what I hear, a whole lot is about to change when she makes her debut!)  I’ve […]

Double Take :: The Chambray Shirt

In my work as a stylist, I am always trying to come up with new ways to wear classic pieces. So, we are launching a new column to explore just that. We have deemed it Double Take, and each month, we will ask two people with totally different approaches to dressing to share how they […]

My Life, Styled :: Winter Pastels

Remember this time last year when neon was all the rage?  Well, it’s time to trade in those bright Cambridge satchels for something a little softer.  Pastels were seen floating down the spring runways of Burberry, Jason Wu, and Prabal Gurung, and just because spring hasn’t yet sprung, doesn’t mean you can’t begin incorporating them into your wardrobe […]

My Life, Styled :: The Griffith Observatory

Some days just beg you to get outdoors, don’t they?  We’ve been having an unusually warm winter here, and it has a lot of people complaining about the record high temps during what are supposed to be the chillier months. But honestly: we live in Southern California… winter is not part of the deal. Personally, I’m […]

My Life, Styled :: Shopping Silver Lake

With just 11 weeks until this little girl’s due date, January is shaping up to be a busy month! Between styling projects, blog shoots, and working on this little one’s nursery, it feels like I’m constantly out shopping these days. While malls can be a super convenient one-stop shop, I’ve been challenging myself to explore […]

My Life, Styled :: New Year’s Eve

Confession: I know it’s supposed to be over-rated and the like, but I’d like to just say that New Year’s Eve is one of my favorite holidays! For one, it’s characterized by champagne, sequins, and just about anything sparkly, so what’s not to love about that? Not to mention, I have a real, inexplicable fondness […]

My Life, Styled :: Out & About in Fall

I don’t know what the weather’s been like where you are, but here in LA the past couple of weeks have been all over the map! We were in the 90’s one day last week and then two days later down in the 40’s… how is a girl supposed to dress appropriately?! It’s certainly been […]

My Life, Styled :: A Sweet Treat

Thanksgiving is just over three weeks away, but here in LA things have been generally warm and sunny. I can’t complain, though, right? Generally warm and sunny weather is what you sign up for when you move here. Regardless, I have been trying to find ways to incorporate a little bit of fall into my […]

My Life, Styled :: Headed for Fall

Though I’ve been praying for cooler temperatures and changing leaves, I’m also fully aware of the inexplicable irony that six months from now I will surely be counting down the days to warm summer weather and long summer nights… why is it that we’re always ready for the next season? In LA, we’ve been greeted […]

My Life, Styled :: Day Off at Vista Theatre

As I am sitting here staring down my to do list and typing this post, I can’t help by daydream about a much needed day off!  September has been chock full of super fun styling projects and blog collaborations, and I’ve been going non-stop these days! Not to mention, this growing bump seems to be depleting some […]

My Life, Styled :: A Stylist’s Office

Happy September, friends! I hope this month is off to a great start for you all!  Has anyone been following what’s happening at Fashion Week in NYC? I have been working non-stop these last couple of weeks and I sadly ended up having to postpone my trip until October… so instead of fashion shows and […]

My Life, Styled :: Modern & Feminine

Did anyone watch the VMAs this weekend? Even more than scoping out the red carpet looks, I love to see what the artists wear to perform. I loved the whole concept of Katy Perry in the boxing ring and her back up dancers in stylized sweatshirts and sweatpants, complete with faux sweat, of course. And […]

My Life, Styled :: Beverly Hills Brunch

One of the perks of living in LA is the multitude of swanky hotels perfect for brunching, lunching and meeting up with friends. You can do a pool day at The Roosevelt or dinner at PaliHotel, but my personal favorite is the Sunday Jazz Brunch at The Polo Lounge at the Beverly Hills Hotel. My […]

My Life, Styled :: Patriotic Prints

Happy (almost) Fourth of July!  If you were following along last year, you might remember me waxing poetic about my great love for this most patriotic of holidays.  It’s such a stress-free, no fuss holiday… and any celebration that requires meals on the grill, adult beverages and the great outdoors is fine by me! We are in […]

My Life, Styled :: Traveling Abroad

So far, I’d have to say this summer has been pretty dreamy. I hired Blair, the first member to join our editorial team at The Effortless Chic, back in April and it was one of the best things I’ve ever done! Meanwhile, my husband Aaron has been enjoying a much-needed hiatus from his crazy production […]

My Life, Styled :: To The Beach and Beyond

When it comes to the perfect summer day, it’s hard to beat the calm and relaxation of a day at the beach…am I right?  Now that summer is in full swing, I’m constantly looking for a reason to bury my toes in the sandy shore, and this little afternoon at Zuma Beach was just what […]
