FAVORITE FACE OILS + WHATS ON MY SHELF



Truth be told, this wasn't the post I intended on writing. I was planning on just sharing my current favorite face oils, but once I put these shelves up and started shooting, it only seemed fair to tell you about my current favorites and what I keep on my vanity for near daily use.

NYC



One of my favorite things about NYFW is that it's always a chance for me to try out new styles. And since I'm usually the girl in denim, it felt all too appropriate to try my hand (leg?) at styling trousers instead. There's just something so chic about them, but with this cropped cut they still feel fun and not too serious. My other favorite thing about NYFW? Getting to break out my fall wardrobe.

MY UNIFORM



My uniform, especially on casual days is pretty straightforward. Chances are, if you follow me on Instagram, you probably already know what it is. High waist jeans and a simple tee of some kind. Sometimes vintage, sometimes new, almost always with mules - but always the same combo of the two. And while it's not an especially original or groundbreaking uniform, when it's done right it can look just as fashionable as a fussy dress and heels.

Finding the right jeans and the right tee can be tricky, given how many places there are out there. Endless vintage shops online, and pretty much every major denim company has their version of the modern "mom jeans". So below I've compiled a list of my favorite sources for both. Scroll down to see.

AUTUMN BREEZE



Wrap dresses have a special place in my heart (and my wardrobe) because they are just about the easiest thing to throw on. When combined with a plunging neckline they make for a chic look for date night or a day trip. I've been slowly growing my collection of these silky numbers, and one of my favorite shops for an effortless dress is Realisation Par - shot by @photobyvincent.

MY SKIN JOURNEY WITH SKII

 

A few weeks ago, I showed you guys a sneak peek at a product I added to my skin care regimen. And now, after using it daily, I feel ready to share the full story with you - because really, it takes time to see how a product can help transform the look and feel of your skin. It's the SK-II Facial Treatment Essence, which feels like water when it goes onto your skin, but does so much more.

Summer is an especially busy time for me. It means more photoshoots, more travel, more auditions, more first impressions, really. And with all of those big moments coming one after the other, I wanted to really pay attention to my skin and what it needs. That's why I started the #OneBottleAwayFrom Journey.

ALASKA PHOTO DIARY



Last weekend, Eric and I took an impromptu trip to Alaska. We found a great flight deal, knew we wanted to get away from the LA heat, and packed our bags for a 3 day weekend. Instead of my usual Photo Diary where I take you day by day through our trip, for this one I decided to just list out the important pieces of info you might need if you're planning your own Alaska vacation. Where to stay, where to eat, what to see, and a few examples of how I packed. Scroll down for the full story!

FALL KNITWEAR WITH MARGARET O'LEARY



Alaska is called "the last frontier", and in many ways it's a true description. So much of the land feels untouched and beautiful in its isolation. I had traveled to Alaska once before, almost a decade ago, and have spent the years since dreaming of returning. It may be summer in LA, but up in Alaska there's already a chill in the air, hinting at the approaching cold. I packed up some of my favorite Margaret O'Leary knitwear to shoot along the coastline while exploring, so scroll down to see the photos.
