blazers + pj shirts

We're getting into the dog days of summer and I just can't wait for Fall. So yes, I'm in transition mode. Outerwear with shorts. In this case, blazers. I can always go for a good blazer and I'm really excited about this one from Blessed are the Meek. I love the shape of it - straight and slightly oversized - like you stole if from your boyfriend but better. It's got a satin collar too for a little tux vibe. This one is gonna be on repeat. 

And the trend of pj button up shirts is just something I can't get away from no matter how hard I try. I love the bit of piping trim to give a classic shirt a new feel.

koi restaurant

Summer roll
Koi crispy rice topped with spicy tuna
fresh uni
She's so LA roll - yes there's gold flakes on it!
Peppercorn filet mignon toban yaki
Rangers Valley Waygu carpaccio

I'm always in the mood for sushi. If I could have it for breakfast, I totally would.  From authentic styles to modern takes, I'm all in and will totally try anything. Good thing Los Angeles has so much to offer when it comes to sushi and one of the innovative options is Koi. It's right on La Cienega in the middle of everything so there's always stars there too. David Spade was in the corner booth the night my boyfriend and I had a little dinner date. Ok, it wasn't really little. We never go little. Always go big. 

We ordered some rolls including the new Summer roll (I believe that's what it was called. Things started to get fuzzy...), the She's so LA roll which had gold flakes on it, fresh uni,  Koi crispy rice topped with spicy tuna, Peppercorn filet mignon toban yaki and Rangers Valley Waygu carpaccio. All the rolls were amazing and the uni was just so perfect I almost didn't want to share. 

But my absolute favorites - shockingly - was the peppercorn filet mignon and the wagyu carpaccio. The filet mignon was cooked so perfectly and sat in just the most perfect mountain of shishito potato mash. I honestly just couldn't stop eating it. It was perfectly cooked at medium rare and so flavorful and tender. The carpaccio was also just so flavorful and finished with sesame seeds - my fave. 

There was still a couple things we didn't get to try so I can't wait to go back for more! There's also locations in Las Vegas, New York, Bangkok and Abu Dhabi!

finders keepers | wanderer white slip dress

I've been on the hunt for a white slip dress for awhile. I wear my black one faithfully as an easy go-to dress and I think this white one from Finders Keepers will be another effortless option - especially with sneakers. I love midi dresses for this exact reason - effortless and totally at it's best dressed down with sneakers. Which means, I'm comfortable all day without looking like a bum. Win. 

And I to confess. I've been loving blushy tones - hence the jacket.

8th Story | chic whites

When summer hits, I always gravitate towards whites. I'm sure I'm not the only one. Wearing whites is definitely cooler - and by that I mean temperature-wise ;)  - which allows me to layer some pieces for a cool silhouette. I love the idea of layering a vest with a long sleeve V-neck and shorts. It's got some of my favorite proportions - long vs short, long sleeves with V-necks. This vest has some serious fun potential and possibilities of wearing as a dress.

david lerner | lace up dress

Who doesn't love lace up details lately? It's one of my favorite detailings to a top or dress currently. Just adds a sexy factor but in an effortless way. Totally makes this otherwise simple dress completely rad.

ADAY | like a boss sweater

Two of my favorite things combined - high neck and scuba-like materials. This top is a minimalist x sporty chic fan's dream come true. I love the silhouette and the simple details. Clean seam lines and a mesh-back panel. See - dream come true.

david lerner new york | off the shoulder sweatshirt

Been obsessing lately over off the shoulder tops and found just the perfect one from David Lerner. Love the draped look and the soft material - which works so well on mild spring days especially paired with a skirt. Basically the most ideal balance. 
It also though works effortlessly with my uniform tendencies of ripped denim jeans or leathery pants. Versatility is always key for me.

tobi maxi skirt

This sneaker kick has me revisiting style combinations that I swore by as a teenager. Sounds super weird but I actually never wore jeans in high school. But I did wear a lot of long skirts with bomber jackets so basically this outfit. So excited to find this maxi skirt on Tobi - slightly draped with high slit. The long lean lines combined with a puffy bomber jacket makes for perfect contrast.
