How To: Creative Instagram Photography

Instagram is a whole different world from what it was before. If we jumped on the bandwagon originally, we may have 2.9 million followers too. In the mean while, users are searching for inspiration.

Here are some steps to amping up your IG game through photography:

- Keep it creative. Pose your OOTD's in front of a berserk wall and show off what you're up to.

- Do you have a hobby? Find different angles of your hobby. My hobby is finding new locations in the cities that I am visiting. I want people to see the real beauty in their backyard.

- Stay original and wear what makes you happy. Don't let a price point get in your way. Check Pinterest for inspiration on what to wear all over the world and DIY! I photograph everything I see, creativity is everywhere. xx

Hold Your Tongue

We're talking sneakers & anything in the world of the flat shoe. Over the course of the last few months, my car has become my second home. Which means I'm always on the run. Anyone that is on the run, including mothers, free-lancers, gym junkies and in my world, stylists need a collective of sneakers and comfortable flats to keep our worlds moving.

I'm not one to sacrifice a look with an awful pair of shoes. I will hurt the sides of my feet, my heels and my toes to make sure I look fool proof the entire day. There is only so much that is available to you, especially in a crowded mall where you find nothing but sparkly floors made of syrup and goo. You need to find something strong, neutral, and not overly out of your budget. Here are my top picks on what shoes to wear that will go hand in hand with your blazers for meetings and fluffy sweaters for the weekend picnic without the need to detach your feet at the end of the day.

Layers Layers Layers

Between Santa Cruz and Los Angeles, I can tell you a sweet jacket makes all the difference for my style. I love wearing jackets, coats and layers. It's so unbelievably hot in LA that its rare when you get to wear any layering at all. I've always been this way (excluding high-school years of phasing out the crazy) And in my obsolete opinion, these 'chiffon trench coats' are perfect! It covers and it's breezy enough to wear all day. Unless you're bucket wet sweating.
