Red heads: Don't stay away from red. This strong hue not only graces your locks, but it should look fabulous on you, too! I found this sweet top when I was in Paris in September and I can't stop wearing it. Bonus: Pair it with cheetah shoes to top off a wear-to-work outfit.
Welcome to the #cmpinkpalace.
I love the local stores in my hometown of Santa Cruz, and Cameron Marks has long been one of my favorites. This modern outpost for fashion forward apparel and wares just had a re-model and the result is perfection. Dubbed the "Pink Palace," the new store on the Westside of town boasts the hot color-of-the-moment: a pretty blush shade that sweeps the walls. It's accented with pops of mustard in the dressing room curtains, and blue and yellow poufs.
What else is new? Besides getting an aesthetic makeover, the clothing has never been better. With lines like Ulla Johnson, Rachel Comey, Citizens of Humanity, and No. 6, among others, the store is seeing a surge of out-of-town visitors who are willing to make the trek to Surf City to shop in the beautifully curated brick and mortar location, helmed by owner Vanessa Ambrose.
But if you live out of the area, simply hop online at cameronmarks.com and shop from the web store for all the same beautiful finds.
This past summer I went on a road trip through Oregon. On my adventure, I had a chance to stop by one of my new, favorite boutiques: Orn Hansen. Owned by husband and wife couple Rob Roda and Rodellee Bas, their "general store" offers a beautiful array of Americana-inspired items.
Rodellee's other store (online only) recently caught my eye. Adored Vintage is a place to buy one-of-a-kind vintage items. Instead of scouring boutiques, thrift stores, and even flea markets looking for gems, Rodellee brings them right to you at Adored Vintage. Everything at her shop is absolute perfection. From a stunning kimono to a retro cape to dresses like they used to make them.
Check out the full collection of her beautiful finds at adoredvintage.com.
These beautiful shoes are on my Christmas wish list. (I'll report back if Santa brings them to my doorstep.)
I've been eyeing this striking, slightly heeled pair from Nisolo for quite a while now. After spotting them on a friend's feet and finding them being sold at Jade in Santa Cruz, I started crushing on them.
At $215 they are an investment but not an outrageous one. These are the type of shoes that will last for many years to come.
A sophisticated blend between booties and clogs, they will seamlessly go with anything.
