MADEWELL FALL 2014

Madewell has been a serious favorite for a few years now -- especially to stock up on staples for the fall season. Their newer denim line is killer and fits like a GLOVE. I've purchased two pairs of the high-waisted skinny jeans in the past month and am ready to head back for a third, especially since they're giving you $20 off when you donate an old pair! I've got some fun things in the works with them but for now, I'll leave you with my favorite looks from their fall catalog.

FOR YOUR LISTENING ENJOYMENT // WILLOW SMITH COVERS KING KRULE

I've been meaning to post this for a while but lately posts sit in my head for weeks at a time and usually fizzle away thanks to my 6.5 month old sidekick. This post, however, I couldn't let fizzle. I don't really know who Willow Smith is aside from Will & Jada's daughter (Are they scientologists? Secretly gay? Did Willow sing that 'whip my hair back and forth' song? Too lazy/tired to Google. Side note digressions as I write this at midnight, delirious from lack of sleep.) This cover is really good. I love when people cover songs and either put their own spin on them or make a pretty big departure from their own genre. If my digression above is correct and Willow is the 'whip my hair back and forth' Smith, this rules even more. Check out this great write-up on Oyster Mag and hear the original King Krule version & press play on Willow's below.

MINI DUDE STYLE // FALL 2014 AT CREWCUTS

Being a new mom with a little dude, I've always got my eye out for style mini dude duds -- they can be hard to come by. Though it's nowhere near as hard as it used to be, it's still tough to find cute stuff without cheesy sayings and cartoons printed all over them. Of course, J. Crew has mastered the combination of classically stylish with a hip edge. This is seen not just in the adults section, but for the kids as well. For us San Diegans, shopping J. Crew mini just got even easier with the new Crewcuts opening up at The Forum in Carlsbad. There's a fun opening party for the new J. Crew tonight with snacks by A Miho Experience, cocktails by PTY Bar, all served in the prettiest glassware by my girl, Hostess Haven. In honor of this new addition, I've rounded up a few of my fall faves for dudes from Crewcuts. Make sure to check out the invite below for the opening party and while you're there, snap a photo with the hashtag #crewcuts and J. Crew will donate a book to a classroom in need. Can't make it to the party? Snap a photo and use the hashtag anyway to get those donations rolling!

FOR YOUR LISTENING ENJOYMENT // ZELLA DAY

Gram & I got invited to the Cleobella Fall Preview in Malibu yesterday to check out the gorgeous new looks, feast on Balinese-inspired snacks, drink Suja Juice & coconut-filled beverages and hang with some beautiful boho babes.  They also had the adorable & sweet Zella Day play an acoustic set on the rooftop deck, overlooking the ocean.  Not too shabby, right?  Gram was pretty smitten with her and I loved her beautiful voice & vibe.  Check out her tour schedule here and some of her tunes below.  Perfect weekend beach vibes!

JENNY LEWIS // JUST ONE OF THE GUYS

I've had a girl crush on Jenny Lewis since The Wizard & Troop Beverly Hills.  When she started her career as a musician, it was basically a given that I would love her just as much in that role.  Cut to all these years later and she released a music video to promote her new album, Voyager.  It's a stroke of genius in my opinion... obviously.  First of all, that Lisa Frank-inspired suit (similar blazer: Ascot + Hart's Tatum jacket) and guitar is amazing.  Second, I have a sneaking suspicion that she reached out to two of Hollywood's most hated-on ladies, Anne Hathaway & Kristen Stewart (exhibit a, exhibit b), to star in the video to help bring them back into the hearts of all the women (every woman on the internet) who love to hate them.  Maybe they're just her friends but that's my conspiracy theory anyway.  That's obviously not the point of the video.  It's clearly about the expectations women face as they age that men don't have to (um hello babies) all wrapped up in a rainbow-filled, glittery package.  I'll take it.
