So excited to finally share this, oh so Malibu'esque lookbook I shot a while back with my favorite newcomer brand Tasi Malibu. For this shoot we hit the PCH and drove up north to a little spot we like to call Reel Kick Ranch. Hanging with the chickens, exploring the castles, riding and feeding the horses is just a normal day in our friends life that lives on this stunning ranch life abode. This debut collection totally embodies the playful and free spirited colorful souls of the Malibu Beach coast line. The embroidered jackets and sweaters are so perfect for a day at the ranch and if you want to take it to the beach or on a road trip down or up the coast the flowing skirts and tanks are a perfect fit for your over night bag as well. Congrats Kimberly Bennet on a killer debut collection, can not wait to see whats next! Follow the Tasi Malibu instagram for a vibrant and fun peek into behind the scenes of this "one to watch".

Always being on the go, sometimes I feel like I just need to take a moment to breathe and take in the views and scenery in life. I am always so inspired by my surroundings and when on the West Coast I can't help but to take on the laid back lifestyle and incorporate it into my look that day. Effortless layering is key to the perfect cali vibe outfit, not just because after sunsets things cool down, but because it adds that certain edgy twist to your look. I am all about layering anything and everything, which is why I took this sheer Gentle Fawn blouse and paired it with their super cute laced dress. I love pairing patterns and pieces that are a little unexpected and different. I love taking something lacey and more dressy and pairing it with flats or booties to add the casual feel I like to go for. Whether it is from Beach to City or from Day to Night Gentle Fawn is such a perfect go to for west coast vibes in your closet this Fall. Layered it up babes! Photos by Mike Bishop

Confession time: I have never done a cardio run workout before, but after hearing how satisfying it is to just pound the pavement and work your breath, heart and body all at the same time, I had to try. But running first thing in the morning is a totally different start to my day. I am so not a morning person! I’ve always wondered if being on a runner’s high would totally change the entire course of my day. Would I be more productive? Would I feel healthier and happy all day? Only one way to find out!My alarm went off at 6:00 a.m. (painful!) and at that moment, I felt like this was a bad idea that was not happening. No way was I about to give up an hour of sleep to exercise. Along with the full-body tiredness came “that time of the month,” giving me the perfect excuse to stay in bed under the covers.
I pushed myself to get up and face the challenge ahead: A morning run along Mother’s Beach with my dog. Is this what they mean by a runner’s wall? Because I nailed it. Kidding.
My dog was unbelievably excited about the early morning activities. I, on the other hand, took a bit longer to find my groove. But once I did, I felt great. During and after my run, I felt empowered, excited and refreshed. Hello, runner’s high! Once I got home, however, I crashed. This was the opposite of what I was hoping for!

Denim days are knocking on our door, yes some leaves have fallen that means its almost fall. Denim becomes a regular go to for transition season to cooler weather and Levis is an obvious go to. The way I take on NYC in Fall is by slowly layering some heavier fabrics and longer sleeves into my outfit mixes. This Levis denim shirt is the perfect ingredient to my pre fall wardrobe. Ombre and denim, two things I can not get enough of. As the weather in the city cools down I would without doubt add a pair of Levis jeans to this look and make it a full on denim tuxedo. But for now I am dashing in between meetings and events and recovering from Fashion week in a comfortable #LiveinLevis look.
