"I like to keep things relaxed, especially when I'm running errands or having an adventure with my son, Wells. Relaxed denim is a good base (comfortable but still cool) and perfect for pairing with happy prints and a quilted jacket."

"Don't get me wrong—Re/Done jeans are great as is, but you could wear the combination of a tailored blazer and a Bottega bag with just about anything and look fabulous. It’s a power combo that’ll get you through meetings, long work days, dinners, and beyond."

Stripes + Baggy Distressed Denim

"I like taking baggy, distressed denim in a preppy direction. Mix in an oversized striped shirt and some loafers or mules. It's one of my uniform looks I go to over and over." 

Florals + Two-Tone Denim

"Denim can be a great neutral, like a clean canvas for grounding bold prints. I fell in love with this quilted Clare V shirt-jacket because of its genius-level print mixing." 

Exaggerated Silhouettes + Distressed Denim

"I've never been afraid of volume—it's such a dramatic way to express your style. This season's exaggerated toppers are by far my favourite trend, especially when done to perfection like this Alexander McQueen army denim jacket. Pair it back to more denim (hello, denim on denim, another favourite trend this season) and wear it with a preppy loafer."

Embellishment + High-Waisted Denim

"The best way to make a dressy top feel effortless? Wear it with denim. I love taking a piece, like this tweed-and-pearl gem from Huishan Zhang, and wearing it with high-waisted denim to break things up. The mix of something over-the-top with something really casual keeps it interesting."

"There are some things that are eternally cool, like checker prints. They've been cool since '70s surf culture took root, and I think they'll always stay cool. Clare V makes the perfect checkered fanny pack, which is a must now that I've got my other accessories: puppies!"
