There's something about fringe and crochet that just makes me smile :) Maybe its the way it blows in the wind or how it drapes so effortlessly against the female form ... it screams rock and roll while soft enough to please the dippyest of hippies. In my world, there's never too much and never enough. Vests, bags, boots, sweaters ... the list goes on. Very rarely do I mix my fringe, but in this case, they didn't overpower each other.  And with add-on accessories like these stunning pieces from Bella Beach Jewels, I say you either go big or go home. Layer and stack until your heart says stop -- I couldn't help but go a little crazy with the accessorizing of these gorgeous ocean gems.

Music has always influenced my personal style, from the likes of Janice Joplin and Jimi Hendrix to Florence Welsh and Lily Allen, there's something magical about a performer's craving for self expression that I can totally relate to. Playing piano and guitar along with surfing and my blog are what keep me sane ... without my creative outlets I would be nothing.

I'm about to take off on such an exciting adventure tomorrow!! I'm off to Puerto Rico with my amazing photographer Chelsea Erwin, travel writer and photographer Shaun Devine, and a few more friends who I'm sure will make the trip an epic one for sure. Lots of gorgeousness to be reported soon enough! Keep checking back for updates. XX
