Easy change up!

IMG_7717I was doing some Spring cleaning and found an old t-shirt that I used to love.  It had shrunk a lot and kind of grunged down so I was ready to toss it when all of the sudden an idea came to me.  Why not re-invent something I already have?  I started snipping and studding and ended up with an awesome new tank top that is now my new favorite!  It was super easy and I did it in less than 15 minutes.  Here’s how.

IMG_7700(I chopped in a rounded “V” to avoid making too low of a cut top)

IMG_7704(Next to chop was the sleeves.  I followed close to the sleeve line in front to make sure there’s no unintentional side boob going on.)

IMG_7531There is something so fun about mixing masculine and feminine pieces.  I picked up this jacket from, surprise surprise, Forever21 for some upcoming trips and I absolutely love it.  Since the weather has been so unpredictable, I wanted a jacket that I could wear in any weather.  This jacket has the right amount of pockets for all the things I grab running out the door in the early hours of the morning heading to work and it has a hood in case the rain starts falling unexpectedly.

I can’t explain what it is about horses…

IMG_7378There’s something about these animals that is unbelievable.  They can be high strung, stubborn and strong but what most people fail to see is the completely submissive, gentle, and compassionate side.  Horses are simply freedom embodied in a muscular shell.  I’ve been around them my entire life and you couldn’t force me to shake them.  Needless to say I also love to photograph them 🙂

Spidey was a great model to shoot some photos of.  Whether I’m riding or just hanging out at the barn I love horses and who knows, maybe Chelsea and I will even do another horse fashion shoot soon.  She’s a pro with the horses and the photos always come out so interesting.

All of the lights ❤

IMG_7593

The biggest news in San Francisco as of lately has been the lighting ceremony that took place on Tuesday night on the Bay Bridge.  This holds a special place in my heart because this is the bridge I drive across all the time and I think it’s extremely beautiful.  They have been testing the lights all week and in the beautiful weather we have had, the bridge was nothing less than magnificent.  It’s currently the world’s largest LED structure with 25,000 LED lights individually programmed by Leo Villareal.  For two years these beautiful, luminous lights will shine for you.  Don’t miss out on a huge part of history right here in our own city.

work outfitRunning out the door can be nerve wrecking on a workday, did I forget something at home?! Am I wearing the right color belt? Did I remember my walking shoes? Where’s my underwear?! Ok, that doesn’t really happen but here is a cute go-to work outfit to inspire you.

My backpack obsession!

IMG_7497I’ve been looking for a bag bigger than a purse for traveling on weekends and that I could carry my lunch and wallet to work with.  When I saw this amazing Brandy Melville backpack, I couldn’t resist and I’ve worn it every day since.  I carry it to work, I pack my gym clothes in it, and keep it packed for overnights with my frover.

IMG_7509(Steve Madden booties, Forever 21 key shirt, Urban Outfitters hat, Roxy shorts, and Nordstrom BP sunglasses)

IMG_7529(The shirt also has small shoulder pads which I love, it’s so old school but new school)

IMG_7516(I also loved the zipper down the back of this shirt)

Unfortunately, they sold out of this bag really fast but you can find more of their cute bags here.  Shoulder pads and backpacks used to be “old school”…
