With every summer comes the classic denim short. Always lived in. Always a little rough around the edges. Always with stories to tell. Like that time we hit the road to Palm Springs and trekked through the windy mountains just to get the shot. No trip to the West Coast is complete without denim. A classic blue pair of denim shorts gives me the freedom to style it anyway I like. With 7 For All Mankind, Dylana and I created our own stories on the road, shot here for Who What Wear.
We went with 3 top summer trends: Retro, All Americana, and Western.
It’s so hard finding the perfect blue jean that has that vintage feel. No added stretch, just love. Meet the Phoebe by AG Jeans. A cropped frayed hem, high waist, and total butt-hugging perfection. I’ve got 2 more days in LA and I’m savoring every moment back in my hometown. Dy and I are actually headed to the AG factory to see how some of our favorite jeans are made. I love getting an inside peek on the process. The washes, the cuts, and design. It’s always such a unique learning experience. Really good denim is part of my California-girl DNA. We grew up in denim-on-denim, vintage Wranglers, and full-on flares from Limited Too with leopard stripes down the side. We were the tomboys off of Wilshire Blvd. Them jeans though.

Remember the denim suits Britney and Justin wore at the American Music Awards over 15 years ago? I’m kind of obsessed with it. This is my own take on 90’s denim. Jocelyn just launch J. Military, and I became obsessed with her denim and cargo. Embellished with dozens of safety pins, but of course glamorized with a touch of fur. Badass indeed. You know me, I love things that are weird and unexpected. Things that aren’t always so pretty and put-together, but rather interesting and tell a story. Complete the look with a glittering lip and call it a day. The one by Bite Beauty is a must-have.

When I find a good pair of jeans, I live in them. Meet the La Vie jeans by Rebecca Taylor jeans you guys have all been asking about. They sure do hug your curves perfectly that all you want to do is dance in them and shake your bum. Lately, I’ve been going super Old Hollywood. Sunglasses almost as cool as Kurt Cobain’s and a leather wrap vest made by my best friend Sabrina SL. She sure is talented and also makes the jewelry I wear by hand. This vest is meant to be worn every which way. With a rock tee underneath, or a turtleneck come fall. Grab one while she is still making them! Each stitch unique and different. This is kind of my go-to look on the weekends. Now adios…babe has a long weekend off!
