It’s seems when I have the most going on something is bound to happen. Last Thursday I had a sore throat and refused to let myself rest because I had a ton to get done last weekend. Now more than a week later I am suffering from the consequences of not allowing my body to get the rest it needed. On a brighter note, thanks so much for 8k on YouTube. I feel incredibly lucky and blessed to all the people who watch my videos and take the time to comment. It truly means the world to me. I have…

My underline obsession with hats has grown tremendously. I originally started to throw a hat on my head back in Winter simply because I was lazy to style my hair or more or less brush it. Now it seems that I have a hat on my head every single day of the week. This one in particular I had a strong connection with it a few years back, bought it on a whim from Zara for probably no more than $20 bucks. I needed a hat because I was going to be traveling around Europe and didn’t want the blazing…

As of recently I have taken a strong interest in cement walls and shadows. This might not be a new “theme” in the blogging world, but for me it’s new and stronger than ever. My girl Frankie and I were strolling on Melrose, you know where are the cool spots be at, and when I saw this cement wall with soft shadows, I knew I had to be photographed there. You see, style blogging isn’t really about what you’re wearing so much, it’s more about the story and the essence you’re giving out. For a few months now I have…

This week was filled with new adventures and in those new adventures I had realized, I don’t know L.A like I should. I had realized in that moment that I haven’t really allowed myself to be free and discover new places. I have lived in Los Angeles my entire life and I feel like I haven’t embraced it fully as I possibly could. If you don’t know, I plan to move to Paris, I know somewhat crazy. Who just gets up and move to a new country. Well, its my plan, *hoping I can work out the visa situation* and nothing…

Since the start of the year I have been spending most of my time in Downtown. I have never been in the city so much in my life. I live about 20 miles from Downtown Los Angeles and recently had made the decision to up route my life..in a year.. to Paris, France. If all goes accordingly that is. Since I am not one to usually embrace LA and all it has to offer, I have decided to try and make a more conscious effort to explore more of LA or even California for that matter. Going to try new…

Cannot get enough of wearing black and white. One might say, “okay Kristina, enough we’ve seen that done already”, however for me, it’s my color choice at the moment. Would it be possible for a gal like me to be able to only wear all black or all white outfits for this up coming season? Oh sure the temps will be insane this summer, so all white it is? Oh and let’s not forget about the all black outfit for those summer nights. I do try to expand my style and am constantly looking up inspiration that I can gravitate…

One of my favorite quotes is “not all those who wonder are lost.” I really feel like I relate to this expression especially so, since I got the traveling buy almost three years ago. I currently dream of moving to another country and allowing myself to get lost. I find it incredibly rewarding when traveling to a completely different culture and accepting it for my own. Traveling to new countries that I have never been before and embracing the cultures as my own has turned into my greatest passion of all. Recently I had gotten my dream job in Downtown LA…

A week full of mini adventures stuck on the side of the highway and trying new things. Last weekend I went shooting with my now friend and photographer Madeline Northway and modeled along side Model Trevor West. We wanted to tell a story of a whimsical love story in the country side. What little can anyone tell from the behind the scenes is that we were in Calabasas that has well groomed lawns and gated communities.

Is it western or is it femme? I love mixing these two styles together. As I mentioned in my previous post how much I am loving the western-esk feel to all my outfit choices at the moment, today is no different. Saw this two piece set from Catherine Fulmer Collection, talk about love at first sight. Pairing something so clearly femme and soft with jewelry accents that are clearly so western is a match made in heaven for me.

Understanding what style is to me, is something that I am constantly exploring. When someone asks me what is my style, it usually starts with “at the moment it is..” and follows with, whichever trend or style I am feeling at the moment. Style represents who you are and how you might be feeling at that moment in time. Style is a huge part of my life, and throughout the years it has grow tremendously and continues to do so. However style isn’t just a one way street, there are many different avenues to take with style and how I…
