Goodbye Winter, Hello Tonal Layers!

Spring doesn’t last very long in LA. It’s usually not long after the seasons change before it practically feels like Summer, with 80 degree sweltering heat. I love this time of year though, when the mornings are still crisp and the nights are chilly. There’s something so cozy about it, but admittedly – it is a bit of a confusing time fashion-wise. My trick for surviving these in-between-season moments is to rely on easy layers that you can add or remove depending on the time of day. And lately, I’m having a lot fun using layers to experiment with tonal looks.

Tonal looks are created when you wear multiple pieces of similar color shades, but they don’t necessarily have to be exactly the same. The dark berry shade of my sweater and rust color of my dress are within the same family (red), but they’re still very different, making the look much more interesting. I added a warm accent to my look with this tan crossbody, which plays on the color of my dress. What do you think, would you wear this look? Shop below!

I’ve been using @Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting cream, which really hydrates in dry, hot weather like this. Swipe and check out my stories to see more (and don't miss Honor, my award-winning facialist, while you're at it 🤣) #FaceAnything #ad
  • Headbands... 👍 or 👎?
  • Can’t really caption my love for this little person. My heart grows bigger every day. Her dimpled smile, her cheeky giggle, her joy at discovering new things. Yes there’s less sleep, (and the juggle is real!) but being a Mummy is honestly the greatest job on earth. Who agrees with me? 🤹🏻‍♀️
  • Getting beach ready?? Watch the difference small tricks can make - like applying body shimmer and a super supportive swimsuit (the best I’ve EVER found and it’s on sale) - linked here http://liketk.it/2Cp9Q #liketkit @liketoknow.it
  • Summer party with @mytelltale - who’s lingerie is all about sensuality, instead of sexuality... Their message is female empowerment, which I love! What does sensuality mean to you? #mytelltale #sponsored
