Motif Jewelry X The Style Sauce

I recently collaborated with Motif jewelry to curate a special jewelry collection that I wanted all of you to love.  I carefully hand selected these pieces that I would personally want to buy, and wanted to present them to you all as a compilation of the favorite kind of accessories that I love to wear on a day-to-day basis. 

Really, this collection is about versatility, which always works best for the constantly busy woman these days. Our time is precious, and so are versatile jewelry pieces that can really bring an outfit together.  The idea of versatility is encapsulated in the "Link to Each" ring, which looks like two rings but is really one, the Treasure House necklace, and the Secret Choker necklace, which both look like two separate necklaces, as well. Half of the collection is rose gold (my favorite), and the other half is yellow gold. As a Californian, I made the collection based in two different types of gold because I am from the GOLDEN STATE, after all! What I love most about this collection is that it can be worn with jeans and a tee shirt (my LA uniform... of course), or something a little more glam like a blush fur vest and heels. 

I love that each and every piece is unique, yet simple and wearable. 

Check out the entire collection below and when you've found your favorites you can shop them all directly here. Make sure you grab the pieces that you like, though...  my shop comes down March 25th!

I'm so proud to share all of these with you as it's been one of my favorite projects that I've worked on so far. Check all of the collection out below, and I can't wait to see which ones you'll choose as your favorites! 

1) The Treasure House necklace:

--- Made to look like two necklaces, but it's really one. Layered to perfection without you have to wear two different pieces! I like anything that makes my life easier. I love the pearl and crystal detailing, and it looks great with a tee or something a little more dressed up. It's also 925 silver plated gold so won't irritate even the most sensitive skin (like mine!)

2) The Colby Cuff Bracelet:

-- The Colby Cuff Bracelet comes in gold, silver, or black. I love it for it's minimal lines and easy to close clasp. I hardly ever take mine off, an amazing every day piece that can go with almost any other of your favorite accessories.

3) The Pearls at Hand ring

--- This gorgeous ring with claw detailing and pearls looks great with The Treasure House necklace, because hello, pearls!  I love that it's a statement ring without being too much. It's also on sale! Grab one before they're gone.

4) The Secret Choker necklace

--- There has been nothing more trendy and of the moment lately than chokers! For this one I love that there is a dainty rose gold component that is wrapped with black suede-like fabric that creates a bow. Again, it looks like two necklaces which I LOVE! I guess I'm kind of lazy, but the less I have to do to get my jewelry on in the morning, the better... am I right?

5) The Swing in the Wind earrings

--- Admittedly, I don't wear enough earrings. That being said, when I see ones that I love I know I just HAVE to have them. These earrings are one of my favorites from the entire collection and a surefire compliment getter. Wear them with an off the shoulder dress this Spring for some serious va-va-voom. These are also silver plated with rose gold so they won't irritate your ears!

6) The Link to Each ring

--- I've saved the best for last. There's just something about this ring that is perfect for a little glitz in the right places. I hardly ever take it off since it came home with me. I find myself wearing it with a sweater and jeans, but also the first thing I reach for when I need to dress up a pantsuit or something more night time. Again with the two for one, it's one ring connected with a chain so it gives you the perfect stacked look as a midi and regular ring with the ease of having just one piece.

My L.A. Uniform: Chucks and Braids

These Commes Des Garcons Converse Chuck Taylors were a total pain in the butt to order, but I'm happy to say they're now all mine (and just as cute as I had hoped!) Had to pretty much jump through hoops to get these sneakers, but so glad that I waited it out and finally got them, even after a few order mishaps with Nordstrom (we won't get into that... )! They're definitely the perfect shoe for Coachella - comfortable, and I adore the cute little heart on the side that is smile-inducing. Can't wait to wear them to death this summer! I love new shoes always, but there's nothing like a new pair of Chucks, is there?

Clearly not dressed up in this post, but this is pretty much my uniform for a day-to-day L.A. casual look. I have to wear flats or comfortable booties for those days I'm running around or going from one meeting to the next to happy hour. Flannel is always classic so I threw it over this silk sleeveless tunic tank as a layering option, which we always need in California! I find myself wearing jeans all the time lately and this pair is one of my favorites from Genetic. What's your favorite denim brand right now?

Can't forget to mention my hair! I've been living in braids. It's my absolute favorite way for my hair to look cute when I have zero time to style it! What do you think of of the french braid trend? I've literally created a whole Pinterest board about hair and fashion, LOL! I'm obsessed! You can check it out here- I always want to hear new ideas if you have some good ones for chic hair styles!

I Love L.A. : A day in Silverlake
_MG_2565.jpg

Today I'm super excited to announce my newest column I've so appropriately called, "I Love L.A". Here's the deal: I've lived in Los Angeles for 10 years, and in that amount of time I've seen so much change about L.A., and also discovered some really cool sh*t, be that fashion, restaurants, music, events, whatever. I really wanted to start this topic of conversation on my blog because I feel like Los Angeles is really special, and there's a lot to talk about when it comes to the City of Angels that I want to share with all of you.

In the past year, there's been a huge shift in the fashion industry, with everyone from Tom Ford to Saint Laurent doing shows here. There's no question it promises to just get bigger and better. Besides the emerging fashion scene, one can't talk about L.A. without mentioning the restaurants, shopping, beaches, artists, music, and all around kick ass-ness of this city. Really looking forward to sharing with you guys some of my gems and discovering new ones along the way.

Now, back to today's post! To begin, we're kicking off in Silverlake. As you all know I'm a die hard Venetian, but when it comes to the East Side of Los Angeles, it's hard to find a pocket that's cuter than Silverlake. Some of it's charms include some of the most adorable tree lined streets in all of the city, and some of the best design shops and boutiques on the West Coast. 

La Mill coffee Silverlake The Style Sauce

To kick off the day we ventured to La Mill coffee- an L.A. staple for the past 19 years. For a coffee addict like me, this is THE SPOT to go to, given it has an extensive coffee menu and an equally delicious brunch menu to match. I opted for the healthy route- broccolini with poached eggs and a side of rosemary/parmesan breakfast potatoes, while my brunch partner, Brian, went for the Belgian waffles which he definitely did NOT regret. Both were equally good, and I'd recommend trying either option.

Our server at La Mill, Soren, was so nice and knowledgeable about everything while eating there! He had a thing or two to teach even the biggest coffee snob (me). Definitely ask for him next time you pop in for a bite or cappucino.

Obviously, we had to snap a couple of outfit photos while we were in town! Here I'm wearing a pair of self-made DIY fringed Levi's, vintage Malesherbes Louis Vuitton bag, white Kit + Ace washable silk kimono, Zara top (last spring), Sam Edelman "Trixie" buckle sandals, and my favorite neck tie du jour- a white bandana I bought for 5 bucks in Palm Springs.
