Booties

Not going anywhere anytime soon. Booties are a staple in my shoe closet and I'm always looking for a new color or style to add to my collection. They are perfect to slip on whether you are wearing a dress, a romper, a pair of shorts or some jeans. Booties can be a casual look or will dress your outfit up. here are a few styles I've been looking at this week.

A few looks from Anthropologie, Nordstrom and rag & bone.

Leather Backpacks are EVERYWHERE. 

I have been lusting over leather backpacks since Spring and I finally snagged the perfect one from Rebecca Minkoff after much deliberation. Also after seeing tourists from all over the world come into my work and walking all around The Grove with these effortless, sleek, and rocker chic looks, I knew it was time to get my hands on one. 

Here are a few I think you'll like, even a few on sale for Nordstrom's infamous Anniversary Sale (my fave shopping event of the year!!)

Crop Tops

Showing a little skin for the summer, I like the way crop tops hug you just right and expose the right amount of sun kissed skin. It's been an unusually bizarre summer here in LA weather wise. From being too hot to handle during the day to chilly fall like weather at night.  Perfect to go from day to night and even add a slouchy sweater or jacket for those chilly nights. My favorite look has a wide strap and high neck.
