With one festival weekend below my belt, I'm back in LA and already missing the desert heat! Here is a look that I wore this past weekend by Levi's Made & Crafted. The line focuses on elevated, constructed denim staples that translate to a chic, California feel. I especially love this two piece crop top and culottes set because the fabric is sturdy, yet so stretchy and comfortable!

Camilla

OutfitKelsey White1 Comment

Any piece of clothing that communicates escapism speaks to me, and Camilla just does that. As the Australian based designer says,

Each Camilla piece is infused with story: the destination and adventure are yours to fill with vibrant colour, digital print, bohemian detailing and intricate craftsmanship.”

The intricate beaded detail on this jacket is the perfect outfit addition to a simple base. I’m really loving the unexpected splash of color incorporating this jacket into a street style look.

On another note – is anyone else obsessing over waist belts over coats this winter? It’s definitely at the top of my trend list. You can check out Camilla's new collection HERE and start plotting your next escape!

 

GNO Approved

OutfitKelsey WhiteComment

Dressing for a winter night out can feel especially stale at times living in Southern California.  Kaitlynn Carter and I decided to have a little fun and shoot the ultimate GNO outfit based on our personal style.

For my look, I paired a Guns N Roses tee + leather pants with a feminine furred pumps to give an unexpected masculine/feminine twist. Kait styled her Stone Cold Fox red maxi dress with a Child of Wild embroidered choker and black ankle boots. When we're in need of a GNO, we head to some of our fav local spots in LA:

1. Delilah for a swanky 1920's dinner + drinks spot 

Drink: The Spicy Siena (reposado, fresno chili, lime, agave, cilantro)

 2. Jones Hollywood for a cozy, old school rock n' roll setting

Drink: The Hendrix (pear basil margarita with herradura silver tequila cointreau, fresh lime juice, fresh pear juice, basil leaves)

 3. Tower Bar for a low key, seductive vibe

Drink: Tower Smash (tequila, fresh basil, hand squeezed lemon, fresh ginger)

Can you tell I like T E Q U I L A? 

My entire look is from Elyse Walker, my absolute favorite store to splurge at in the Pacific Palisades. You can shop these looks + similar styles with the links below. #TGIT! Now time for a cocktail....

Korakia, Palm Springs

Lifestyle, Outfit, TravelLindsey Cavanaugh1 Comment

A quick getaway with bebe and Foray Collective. 

A couple weeks ago, I was able to escape for a dreamy Palm Springs getaway hosted by Foray Collective and bebe. @blankitinerary @pamhetlinger @walkinwonderland @sophieelkus were there too which was great. PS has always been a favored impromptu destination of mine, and I love getting to know new girls from the industry—especially when they are extremely cool and smart.

We stayed at the Korakia Pensione which felt like a Moroccan paradise and had cute, intimate bungalow cottages. The whole space was unique and gorgeous—even the hotel’s fountain had rose petals floating in it. Everything was sooo peaceful and quiet. Since I manage Influencer Marketing at Foray, I actually coordinated the trip and luckily it turned out really well!

Day one I wore my favorite bebe outfit of the weekend, this off-the-shoulder black top. We relaxed at the pool all day and followed that up with in-room massages. Heaven! Happy hour was spent sipping champagne in the hotel’s courtyard where I finally got to meet (the super sweet) Pam and Sheryl. After HH, we headed to Workshop for a three-hour communal dinner with endless laughs...and drinks. Post dinner all the girls headed back to the pool for a night swim + more wine. So much fun!

Before leaving the next day, we attended the bebe brunch at the courtyard and had the BEST avocado toast (even better than what I’ve had in LA). It was farm-to-table food and you could really taste the freshness.

I could do this weekend over and over again. ‘Til next time, Palm Springs!

You GUESSed it

OutfitLindsey Cavanaugh1 Comment

GUESS is making a major comeback.  What come to mind when think of GUESS? 90's supermodels in denim, bodycon dresses? I have to say I wasn't sure that GUESS suited my style until I went into their Santa Monica store this past week. I was surprised by how many of their pieces I loved - this versatile camel trench and ribbed knit sweater dress together are the perfect weekend outfit with sneakers. Guess is B A C K and better than ever.#LoveGUESS
