Turquoise

IMG_4674

Life lately has been a bit chaotic, however there has been one constant in my everyday wardrobe: turquoise. Lucky for me every turquoise piece I own was handed down to me by my Dad. Yep, the one and only Jim Ensign was quite the turquoise connoisseur in his heyday.
One of my favorite pieces to style is this MAJOR squash blossom necklace. According to Jim it is a, Zuni Peyote Water Bird. The Water Bird is a symbol of the renewal of life, rainy seasons, rivers, distant travel, distant vision + wisdom. If that is the case I’m not taking this bad boy off!

“Gray day. Everything is gray. I watch. But nothing moves today.”

-Dr. Seuss

Yesterday was Monday + quite gray. From the weather to my outfit, everything was gray.

Fall(ing) In Love With Plaid

First things first, please excuse my major stank face in all of these pictures! Despite my nasty facial expressions I swear to god Uncle Karl that my love for plaid is real + happening on a major scale for fall. From outerwear to underwear I can’t wait to style plaid from head-to-toe!

Nurse Kat

IMG_2261A trip to LA calls for a white midi dress…right? Regardless of the season I feel like white always works in LA. This dress was quite the conversation starter yesterday due to the fact that it could easily be mistaken for a lab coat/nurse uniform. Lucky for me I wore this dress to dinner with old friends where the jokes did not stop!
Now no look is complete in my book without my signature Karen Walker Betsy sunglasses in CRAZY tortoise.

This Is How I ‘Dress Normal’

IMG_2209A couple of years ago a co-worker told me that I dressed like it was Halloween everyday. I am pretty sure it was a dig, but I took it as a compliment. I have never been one to ‘Dress Normal,’ so I found it quite entertaining that just a couple months after I left Gap they launched the ‘Dress Normal’ campaign.
This look is nearly all Gap, even the baby Lil Wayne tee + I am pretty sure this is not where they were going with the ‘Dress Normal’ campaign! I do have to give to Gap though. I am a huge fan of these destroyed skinny jeans from the new collection + can not get enough of Banana’s new D’Orsay pump. What do you think of the new campaign? Will you be ‘normal’ this fall?
