instagrams flat lays x whowhatwear

I love shooting flat lays for The Versastyle Instagram - there's just something about creative arrangements shot from above (or at an angle) that get me all riled up. I've always prefer shooting objects over people so it's no wonder flat lays get me so inspired.

Apparently, WhoWhatWear also found my flat lays to be inspiring as they named one of my pictures 30 Best Instagram Flat Lays of The Week! I couldn't be more excited  - especially since my picture was the first one!


asilio x morning lavender x dr. martens


A few things I can't stop thinking about - all things Asilio, feminine pleated shorts, Dr. Martens and the last two things combined together. I got my Dr. Martens earlier this year right before Spring and the heat wave so they haven't gotten much love but since Fall is almost here (I know not quite yet but close enough to me) I started thinking about them again. I craved the idea of wearing them when feminine pieces like these pleated shorts from Morning Lavender. A bit unexpected but perfectly balanced in my world. I'm already plotting to wear these Docs with skirts and dresses... and of course plaid and 90s vibe outfits - as already seen on my instagram.

As for Asilio, you are going to be hearing a lot about this new Australian brand from me. Can't wait to show you more stunning pieces but right now focusing on this white top - it's kinda the most amazing basic-but-not top. Made of cozy faux suede and has a flattering silhouette with side details, it will go with everything - and I love pieces like that.

three of something | coastal jumper

I know it's not exactly fall yet but at the very moment the weather get a slight chill - even for just 10 minutes - I have the urge to throw on a chunky sweater. Three of Something totally has me this season with this amazing jumper (and I also have another chunky in black that I can't wait to live in!) Can we just get cozy already?

And this past weekend I saw one of my favorite babes Julia - the mastermind behind Avgvsta and she hooked it up with drinks and these amazing chain bracelets. Loving the chain links on the Joseph Argento and the ring/bracelet action on the Vincenzo Argento is unreal. Perfect for my arsenal of rings and things.

alexander wang | devere

Another Alexander Wang bag to add to my little collection. This Devere is an oldie but goodie and living proof a good bag will last. I found it at a price that was just too good to refuse - plus I need a small option for when I don't want to carry the world with me.

Wang has been pretty genius in the bag department - we all know that - and definitely think everyone needs at least one.

If you have seen my instagram, then you already know that I've obsessed with this zipped sweater. Haven't seen a sweater like this one before made super rad with the zippers unzipped for a peak of skin. It's kinda an instant change in vibe and oh so perfect for SoCal's not-really-chilly Fall season. Don't be surprised if you see this in another outfit...
