When the lovin starts and the lights go down…
It’s been a lazy Sunday. One of those days where I don’t leave home, lounge in my favorite sweater and listen to Fleetwood Mac. Looking through these photos with my mom’s vintage leather vest from the 70′s makes me want to jump back in time to see a young Stevie Nicks twirl on stage singing Rhiannon. Lace flares, cropped florals and a wide brim hats lets me at least pretend I was a 70′s child. These simple jewels from Amy Friend add the perfect touch to this easy boho rocker look. Her designs have just the right balance of statement and classic. I absolutely love the delicate oxidized metals that she uses!
Red Rocks & Gypsy Musings.
I’m always amazed at what is beyond the strip in Las Vegas. When I perform for weeks at a time in this city of neons and sin I always forget that just outside the casino walls are majestic stretches of red rocks and joshua trees. If I lived here full time I would get lost in the peaks and valleys of this western wilderness. Looking at these photos just gives me more incentive to spend a month in a retro RV, making a photo journal of my western nomadic adventures. Continue reading
Casey Jones you better watch your speed.
I totally feel like I just raided my mom’s closet in the 70′s. Oversized glasses and high waisted bells and skirts grace a majority of her photos from her twenties. So it’s only fitting that most of this ensemble is truly vintage. The most amazing cropped magenta sweater from Sadie Deluxe Vintage, vintage wooden bangles and one of my favorite scores from the Aspen Goodwill…a hand-beaded “St. John of Aspen” belt. High-waisted bells are getting more wear than anything else in my closet this season and I can’t think of a more perfect bag to rock with this outfit, a Wayuu Mochilla bag from The Buena Onda.

Pumpkin spiced flower power.
Nothing tastes more like fall than a pumpkin spice latte. Seriously. I used to live off of this decadent drink in college at 7 am before classes, after I finished my bartending shift at 4 am. Thankfully there’s no more bartending, but unthankfully no more pumpkin spice lattes. (Please start making vegan pumpkin spice, Starbucks!!) I’ve found my substitutions…bougie elixirs from Whole Foods or my new favorite Brazil nut-date-kale-spinach-romaine-sea salt-vanilla bean from Cold Pressed Juicery. My past midwest self would be making fun of my current LA self for my $10 self-indulgent, unnecessary but oh-so-amazing juice-gasms. But honestly nothing comes close to that spicy clove, nutmeg, cinnamon pumpkin coffee that reminds me of my favorite fall months in college. These amazing and absolutely adorable pumpkin spice colored boot skirts, crafted by the talented artist of Blue Jeans and Roses, pay homage to my forgotten flavors of autumn.
Bells & boots.
Tunics, bells, boots, belts…all you need for fall in California. I can’t get enough of printed bells and this killer print comes from the online bohemian boutique, Of A Muse. Everything in their shop is fit for a muse, and if you’re not, it just might turn you into one. This tunic, tank, bells and bangles are all handpicked items from this gypsy soul boutique. Perfectly paired with a gorgeous tiered necklace from Chloe + Isabel, I could literally live in this outfit! Continue reading
