Happy 2015 everyone! I thought I’d start the year off with one scene from an editorial I shot with Jose Villa for at Flutter Mag. As part of our Glamping story, published in the spring issue, I art directed this fun scene of the models playing a game of cards. We picked a spot just across from the cabins at El Capitan Canyon and I styled the scene with a cute deck of cards and a carafe of Foley rose wine with strawberries and raspberries for color. I pulled wardrobe from Bonita and Dressed/Ready and was going for a casual, elegant camping vibe. There’s tons more pretty from this shoot so stay tuned!
Winters are, well, I wouldn’t say rough here in Santa Barbara, and I find a light weight cable knit sweater is essential for those (slightly) brisk winter days. I paired the sweater with a modern pendant necklace by Jill Michael, slouchy booties, and distressed jeans. Of course, the piece to resistance, is this fringe purse I found while out shopping at Chapala and Parker. I love the playfulness of fringe and the tooled scallop pattern I’m semi-obsessed with. What are your essentials for a Santa Barbara winter?
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.
Santa Barbara is certainly scarf country, it never gets quite cold enough for a coat, so my winter uniform consists of great sweaters that go with everything (hello black and white) and lots of scarfs. This one, from Chapala and Parker, is a cozy infinity style. I paired it with classic aged jeans, a gray T, wood bangles, a grey clutch, and houndstooth toms.
