Hats for Daze

I am a hat enthusiast no doubt. When I saw this beauty in Free People's August catalogue I did not even think twice about ordering it. It adds the perfect touch of South Western vibes pulling together any outfit. Fall is just around the corner and lucky for me this hat was just released in a burnt orange color. Scooooore.

WWD Magic Photo Diary

 The LA Showroom team!

Last week I had to opportunity to make the trip with the Free People wholesale team to work at WWD Magic Market Week. It was a great experience to say the least. The beautiful visual displays and upbeat atmosphere in our booth really reflected the Free People lifestyle. It was exciting to see everyone come together from all parts of the country to make this a successful year at Magic. I am so thankful to have learned so much from so many talented people. Hopefully one day I will achieve my dream of working at Home Office back on the East Coast!

Philosophy Resort 2014

(Images via

Due to the fact that my weekend has consisted of nothing but projects and homework it is no surprise that as a fashion student I have to spend hours upon hours doing research on As I was looking for inspiration via Resort 2014 collections I stumbled across Philosophy's collection. I about died. The delicate feminine take on a southwestern vibe is something I find innovative and awesome. I also love the touch of countryside chic with the overalls and bell sleeves.

Lets Make Some Magic!

Today I received the most exciting news! I have been invited to be a part of the Free People team heading to Magic Market Week in Las Vegas! I could not feel more fortunate. Having the opportunity to intern at the showroom alone is amazing but this is the icing on the cake. So on Monday I will be packing my bags and hopping a plane to attend and work at the Free People booth. This week will be full of packing, bubble wrapping, and steaming clothes but the end result will be an experience I'll remember forever.

Above are some photos from my "FP me" account featuring some of my favorite pieces from Free well as a few inspiring words for the week. Get. Busy.

Hazy Sunday Inspiration

(images via tumblr)

Upon my move to California over a year ago I had a very distorted idea of what summertime out here is really like. Sure it is beautiful once the clock strikes noon but first thing in the morning thanks to the marine layer, you awake to a chilly hazy gloom. It is the kind of weather that makes me wish I lived in the North West somewhere in the mountains. I could imagine waking up to gloomy beautiful mornings surrounded by mountains and lakes and a fresh cup of coffee. Anything beats this marine layer/smog/Los Angeles pollution.

Free People the August Catalogue

Free People is truly an amazing company that I will always hold close to my heart. Interning in their Los Angeles showroom since April is one of the most inspiring experiences I have ever had. I look forward to working each day and seeing the new samples for upcoming months outlining the rooms. I have been anxiously waiting for the August collection to arrive in stores and I could not be more thrilled with their latest catalogue. These are some of my favorite looks. Check them all out here!

Afternoon in Paris

A few months ago I took a trip to Paris and it forever changed me. The architecture, food, lifestyle, and fashion is so vastly different from what I am use to in America. It is amazing to see how much of the beautiful architecture is preserved. I was recently reminded of my trip thanks to Free People's last installment in the Roshambo short film series. It takes place in Paris and captures the mysterious vibe of the city perfectly. Watch it here.
