Hitting the open road!

A classic convertible deserves an equally timeless outfit, like a striped t-shirt and blue jeans.

A road trip is never complete without some indulgences. Cheeseburger and fries? Don’t mind if I do!

Dinosaurs in the desert! These roadside attractions are just too wonderfully weird not to adore, plus they make perfect Instagram material.

Between the lush palm trees and the jagged desert mountains, Palm Springs has the coolest look. Plus, it’s the perfect quick getaway from Los Angeles.

I never go anywhere without an oversized pair of sunglasses, preferably in classic black.

My ideal travel look: a vintage concert t-shirt and a fun pair of jeans, like these bright blue skinnies.

After a long drive, nothing is better than lounging in comfortable jeans with a magazine. (The iced coffee doesn’t hurt, either.)

Ankle-length jeans are my favourite, because they work with just about every type of shoe.

The best part of a road trip: you can pack as much as you want.

Light-wash jeans are perfect for spring and work with all my favourite lightweight jackets.

Everything’s better with ice cream, don’t you think?

On Kerr: Western Denim Shirt in Light Sky ($168); High Waist Ankle Skinny in Indigo Twill ($189)

In honour of Ms. Monroe, I mixed all-American staples—a denim shirt and blue jeans—with a hint of old-Hollywood, via a bright red bag.

Between the sunshine, palm trees, and bright buildings, this is my kind of town.

Until next time Palm Springs!

Every woman should own a pair of dark-wash jeans, which can easily go from day to night with a shoe switch.

We love the way the bright blue hue of this slimming style really pops against a neutral top.

Light-wash jeans offer a stylish nod to the ‘90s.

Western Denim Shirt in Light Sky ($168)

A denim button-up in a barely-there wash feels so fresh for spring. Dress it up with a statement necklace.

High Waist Ankle Skinny in Indigo Twill ($189)

Thanks to a high-waisted fit and ankle-grazing hem, these skinnies guarantee a flattering fit.

Classic Denim Jacket in Bright Light Broken Twill ($265)

When the weather starts warming up, swap your winter coat for a perfectly worn-in jean jacket. The lightweight layer works over everything from relaxed blouses to a breezy dress.
