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…

It seems as days and weeks are passing me more and more quickly. Oh but that’s life Kristina. I throughly do enjoy blogging and updating you all on my life. I need to get bette at my time management. I honestly am trying I am. I have been shooting a ton, editorial wise and the reason those can’t be published on my blog right away is because the photographers I am working with are making great strides to get it in published magazines. I find it very exciting that I have evolved from just a girl who has a blog,…

I saw Alt J perform back in December at KROQ Almost Acoustic Christmas and from then to now, my love for their music has multiplied. I find myself listening to them on repeat. If you haven’t heard of this English band, go ahead and take a listen. This song is called Hunger Of The Pine. Complete magic!

LA is literally the holy grail for bloggers. It’s like a mega spot for babes alike to walk down Melrose and take outfit of the day photos and finish it off with froyo (yes, frozen yogurt). I mean, how bad does a day like that sound? Well that was my day a few weekends ago with my new fashion babes. We had met each other last month at LA Fashion Week and instantly clicked when we both went into the same room for the chance for a photo opt. I mean, if you don’t take a #selfie in it or…

It’s all about those 70s vibes. I don’t normally wear color or watch sitcoms (hence the title post) however, this was a special occasion. I spotted this skirt almost immediately when walking into H&M and knew it was a match made in heaven. I have been stuck on the monochromatic trend and it has been hard to stray far from it, however kinda makes it easy when this 70s button up skirt is thrown into the mix. Can’t wait for more trends for the upcoming seasons.
