Skinny Jeans: A Black and White Story with Mott & Bow

Hey Merbabes!   I am coming to you live from L.A., Los Angeles is one of my favorite places in the world and I am so excited to soak up the sunshine and good vibes for the next two weeks.  Although these snaps were taken in Chicago, I took this exact outfit with me to L.A. and I know it will be on repeat this season.  This black and white look is perfect for a cool, summer day or eating dinner on your favorite patio.

Father Daughter Diaries with Hammer Made

 Hey Merbabe, just a friendly reminder that Father's Day is just around the corner, as in this Sunday.  Father's day gift guides have never been much assistance in picking out the perfect Father's Day gift for Dan.  It is always the same old toolbox (no), weird tech gadget (no), or sports jersey (no, never ever),  my dad is way cooler than all of those things.

This year, I partnered up with Hammer Made to create my own Father's Day Gift Guide for the Cool Dad.

NYLON x Sanrio: Hello Kitty Bomber

Hey Merbabes!  The collaboration of my dreams was just released and I was lucky enough to get my hands on some of it.  Hello Kitty has been my main girl since I can remember. I had a Hello Kitty TV in my room, an HK toaster, every single book, stuffed kitty, pencil, notebook, and toy you could imagine.  I could have opened my own chain of Sanrio stores with all the goods I had.  I am a little sad that my life is not as full of Sanrio as it used to be, that being said this collection came at a perfect time. 

Nylon and Sanrio collaborated to create the ultimate cool girl collection featuring your favorite Sanrio babes.  This collection was so much fun to style, but my favorite piece has to be the Hello Kitty Bomber Jacket.

Date Yourself: Become a More Confident You

Hey Merbabes!  Today we are chatting about something that has always come as second nature to me, but I have learned does not come so easy for many people, and that is spending time alone.  Growing up as an only child being alone never meant being lonely, honestly it meant that I didn't have to deal with anyone else.  I could play whatever games I wanted, dress up in the prettiest dress, and never have to share my toys.  That being said, I have always loved being alone, it has alway been something I look forward to and cherish.

 I often get complimented on my "confidence" and yes I am a very confident person but it is less "confidence" and more comfort.  I am completely comfortable with myself, and I know that all stems from my ability to be alone.   I am sharing with you three of my favorite ways to spend some alone time, or as I like to call it "date yourself".

Please Drink Responsibly: Sporty Summer Fit

Hey Merbabes!  The weekend is here and I've got the formula for a sassy and sporty summer look.  I am not usually one to rock a fitted mini dress, not my vibe BUT when I saw this dress it seriously spoke to me.  It is pink, sporty, and serves up major sporty-spice sass.  This piece will keep you feeling like a 90s supermodel all summer long.
