the most important part of your wardrobe are the basic items, the pieces that you can wear almost every day, layered or paired with jeans, tucked into skirts, tied over dresses, with a pair of shorts, etc. you can’t build an outfit without them and even though they aren’t always the most fun thing to spend money on, they usually give you the most bang for your buck. one of my all time favorite places to buy great basics is everlane. i love their transparency and i also love their clothing. the designs are thoughtful, good fabrics, nice quality and colors. a few great looking staples that they currently have in stock below! – joanie

cotton popover shirt  $55 – very into these striped cotton button ups for summer, tied at the waist, over a swimsuit, with jeans, the options are endless!

black cami $68 – a cami is a great piece to add to your wardrobe, it’s perfect under a blazer during the day and then on it’s own in the evening. i love them tucked into full waisted 50’s style skirts.

silk shirt $98 – this has such a classic feeling, i love a slightly oversized silk button down, buttoned all the way to the top and tucked in or with a few buttons undone and a pretty lace bra peaking out.

utility jacket $78 – i heavily rotate between a utility type jacket like this and a denim jacket. they’re great day or night.

bodysuit $30 – if you haven’t tried a bodysuit, now is the time! they are the perfect layering piece as they don’t ride up. i love them with tighter fitting skirts as you don’t get that tucked in line.

oversized sweatshirt  $45 – i love slightly oversized sweatshirts. they give me the feeling of vintage Champion from the 70’s.

cotton cropped tee $15 – a little boxy and a little cropped. a great white tee to pair with high waisted denim.

french terry crew $38 – loving all the soft colors this crewneck sweatshirt comes in.

suede slingback  $155 – if you feels tuck between sandals and sneakers every day, throw these into the mix. ladylike and simple!



MorningStar Farms 4th of July party | designlovefest

i’m super excited to announce a summer long partnership with MorningStar Farms, we have planned out some really fun entertaining content and i can’t wait to share it with you! MorningStar Farms offers vegan and vegetarian options and we’re focusing on all of their burgers (check out all their products, here!) the whole campaign is built around the idea that we don’t need to label ourselves as a vegan or vegetarian to enjoy those types of products and that this summer everyone can make room on their grill for those options. i love the mentality and the openness it creates in the conversation of food, that it doesn’t have to be exclusively meat or veggie. it can be intimidating to label yourself as eating only one way but i love including more plant-based meals in my diet for health and the environment.

 polka dot jumpsuit $23

i did a survey at the beginning of the year asking you what you wanted to see more of in the styled column and one piece of feedback i got was more affordable options. some people commented that anything over $50 was totally out of reach for them and that it can be discouraging to see shopping round ups that have mostly $50 + items, which i totally understand. there are stores that have lower price points like Forever 21, H&M and Zara but they have such a big selection that it can seem totally unmanageable to go through and find the hidden gems. i want this column to be about the hidden gems and so the below round up is pieces that have all come from Forever 21.  i also wanted to say is that if you’re on a budget and not wanting to spend a lot of money on clothing i think that shopping consignment stores, ebay and places like depop can be a great solution. i do a lot of my shopping second hand as it’s better for your wallet and the environment and it can be overwhelming at first but overtime you’ll get used to what keywords to search for and if there is a favorite consignment store in town that you can visit. being in LA, we are spoiled for choice when it comes to these types of stores but once you start looking you’ll find that almost every city, big and small has a consignment store or two.

the reviews are really positive on this wide leg jumpsuit and i’m not surprised. it’s the perfect sophisticated shape and the button detail makes it look much more expensive. $33

pretty wrap front dress in a soft yellow. it’s short but the dress itself isn’t cut to be tight so i think those two balance each other out well. $45

this is very 90’s and very cute paired with sneakers. the length is short so may not work for everyone but i the dot print with the buttons is very sweet. $20

this floral print wrap dress would be a go-to all summer. i like that it’s in rayon which is a really light weight fabric and lays nicely against the body. $28

i like the low cut back mixed with the longer length on this pretty red number, it makes it really wearable all summer long to events like weddings, showers, etc. $23

the most colorful option i included but i think the multi-color works on this wrap dress because the silhouette is so simple. $20

this wrap dress is low cut so i’m thinking you’re either going to need tape or to pin it but it’s such a pretty romantic piece and i love the open shoulder look. also very 90’s but very of the moment right now.



i love switching up bookshelves and adding trinkets to them. it’s one of the simplest things to redecorate that can make a huge impact. plus, there’s something so fun about rearranging and adding pieces, and then seeing what works and what doesn’t. a few of my favorite things to include in a bookshelf are leaning framed art, handmade ceramics, and little plants. lately i’m really loving monochrome bookshelves with one main color throughout, like all white with a few pops of the same peachy pink. here’s some of my favorite bookshelf styling inspiration at the moment. what type of shelf styling do you love? – erika
