Flower Chic: Vibrant Fall Centerpiece Idea

October 25

I love fall and winter flowers and for this centerpiece I was inspired by bold red anenomes with their black centers.

Coupled with fall maple leaves, bittersweet, black dahlias and chocolate cosmos, I love the rich saturated colors paired with the darker, moodier flowers.

To make this arrangement you will need:


-floral shears

-floral foam

-container, I used this one from Jamali Garden


1 bunch maple leaves

1 bunch black dahlias

3 strands of bittersweet

1 bunch chocolate cosmos

2 bunches orange dahlia

2 bunches red anenomes

1 bunch frizzy orange/red tulips

1 bunch black scabiosa

Begin by placing the bittersweet and maple leaves first to establish shape. Then add in your larger blooms at different heights. Remember to turn your centerpiece periodically so you end up with a good shape from every angle. Layer your smaller flowers into the arrangement and ta da! You have a beautiful fall centerpiece!

Shoesday: Dramatic Gold & Black Heels

January 20

If you’re following me on Instagram then you know what a whirlwind last week was for me, shooting 6 yes, SIX, editorials over 3 days. I’m enjoying a bit of calm after much activity, and I’m super obsessing over these stunning gold and black heels. I think I’d find an excuse to wear them with just about anything. Shop them: 1. Crystal Leaf Sandal by Giuseppe Zanotti 2. Strappy Sandal with Gold Leaves by Giuseppe Zanotti   3. Metallic Criss Cross Sandal by Prada 4. Tallow Sequined Snakeskin Sandal by Jimmy Choo

I recently discovered Candela, a clothing and shoe line inspired by the founder Gabrielle’s childhood growing up in a rustic ranch setting in Urguary. I love the mix of feminine lace tops, chunky, oversized sweaters, perfect flats and timeless riding boots. Shop my favorites here: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6



Fashionable: A Moto Jacket

November 03

Fall is officially upon us and I’m obsessed with this vegan moto jacket. Its pretty much goes with everything and adds a certain edge to any ensemble. I paired it with a low key blue button down, delicate gold necklace by Jill Michaels, wayfarers, ripped jeans, comfy mocs, and a ladylike beaded purse.

Fashionable: Fall Knits + A Leather Skirt

November 25

I love a good leather piece (especially when its a good faux version) and this skirt is the perfect staple for the “rough” Santa Barbara winter. I paired this flared leather skirt, available locally at Chapala & Parker, with a taupe and black turtleneck, hoop earrings, a cheetah clutch, and black oxford heels.

November 18

Who doesn’t love a good orchard and Apple Lane Farms in Solvang is among my favorite fall spots. It’s open to the public and you can pick your own apples (the BEST apples ever and stay tuned for an apple chip recipe I’ll be posting on Wednesday). For a nippy fall afternoon I’m loving this chunky sweater which I paired with a simple white T, classic black jeans, my staple Frye boots, gold chain bracelets, and a nude purse, cat eye tortoise shell sunnies all available locally in Santa Barbara at Chapala & Parker. I loved my Brigette- inspired hair and makeup that Jess Wilcox did! And the photos, well I’m pretty sure Lane Dittoe knocked it outta the park.

Fashionable: Polo Vibes

October 28

Chanel was right, a little black dress is seriously key piece in any stylish lady’s wardrobe. A couple of weeks ago I styled this dress with a chambray and a fedora for a day time look. This time, I styled this dress simply with an oversized sun hat and Frye boots. This would be perfect look for a cocktail party on a ranch or a casual morning at the Santa Barbara Polo Fields.
