Little Black Bag- Every Day Ease with Lo & Sons

New bag. New hair. New me. But really, why does changing out my every day purse give me a little extra boost of motivation? Over the years, I have cycled through different brands and types of ‘everyday bags’. Most, eventually, fall flat on my criteria. High quality, lots of practical storage and chic design. When Lo & Sons asked me to try their Pearl Crossbody, I truly did not expect to use it everyday. Since arrival on my doorstep, I take this bag with me everywhere I go. Errands, coffee meetings, date nights. The Pearl might be the most versatile bag in my collection. 
The functionality is seamless with my busy lifestyle. There's plenty of room for my wallet, camera, and phone. I could easily see myself bringing this on a cross-country flight or long distance travels. 
The leather is so soft, and the texture reminds me of something vintage.  I love how you can change the strap to wear across my chest, or to be a large clutch. 
I've worn it with a baggy tee and jeans or a romantic sundress. Lately, I've been pairing down my closet to have only include pieces I very much love. My Lo & Sons bag, definitely gets a spot.

Spring Cleaning: Why I Cut My Hair

Longer days. Tan skin. Persistent sunshine. Finally, spring is blooming in Los Angeles. Whenever there's a change in seasons, I feel an urge to shift. Whether its in the way I structure my schedule. Or in the clothes I tend to wear. There's something inside me that wants whats the follow the change that's naturally happening around me. 
I have been itching to chop my hair for months. Pulling inspiration from classic cinematic stars, and modern instagram muses. Long hair never felt like me. I have tried to grow my hair out many times, but it never suits me. I looked in the mirror recently, and it felt off. Like the powerful, cool, dynamic woman I see on the inside didn't connect with what I wanted on the outside. It's funny how a pair of scissors, and a trusted hairstylist can change how you feel about yourself. 
There's always something rebellious about short hair. Fighting the feminized norm, of billowing Repunzel locks. I feel my most confident when I straddle the lines between traditional feminine and masculine. I cannot wait to slick my choppy cut and wear tailored men's button downs. There is a lightness to my look, and feels so freeing. You can just see more of me. And I absolutely love it.
