If you love Denim as much as I do, you know the importance of finding that perfect denim jacket, pair of skinnies, or overalls. I am obsessed with all the denim we have seen both on the runway and the streets this summer. Throwing on a great piece of denim can complete a daytime look, as well as make a bold statement.

I’ve pulled my top picks for this summer–Check out my favs below!

The Best Taco You’ll Eat All Summer is Served on a Blue Plate

How much are you drooling right now? I know, me too–it just looks way too delicious. Blue Plate Taco’s food doesn’t only photograph beautifully, but it’s just as scrumptious as it looks. This chic restaurant is located right across from the ocean within The Shore Hotel. It is truly a gem amidst the many restaurants that Santa Monica has to offer. I have eaten at Blue Plate Taco three times (so far) and still dream of those fish tacos. Want to try it out for yourself? Check out their website and menu HERE.

High Lounge – The Rooftop Bar of Your Dreams

Since moving to Los Angeles, I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect bar. Well folks, here it is! High Lounge provides delicious cocktails, great food, a good vibe and a killer view of Venice Beach. I am all about ambiance and this place has the best yet. Whether you visit with just a few other friends or a larger party, High Lounge is the place to be. They tend to get very crowded on weekends, so make your reservation ahead of time! I recommend going around 7PM and watching the sunset–with drink in hand of course.  To visit their website click HERE. You’re welcome.

Flipping Out Over Menswear

Screen Shot 2014-07-14 at 10.10.12 PMTrampoline stars and menswear fashion–who would have thought that the two would go together. While browsing the countless make-up tutorials and latest fashion videos on YouTube, I came across the NOWNESS YouTube channel. NOWNESS is a blog that I frequently visit so I decided to check out their latest videos. I clicked on The Wall and what I saw next was unexpected and beautiful. In Dominick Sheldon’s directorial debut, The Wall, the trampolinist stars, Sean and Eric Kennedy, jump up to 22 feet in the air–all while sporting the latest menswear fashions. Stylist Stevie Dance drew inspiration from athletic performance gear and military styling. The wardrobe included looks from – 3.1 Phillip Lim, Duckie Brown, J.W. Anderson, Kenzo, Marc by Marc Jacobs, Richard Chai, Robert Geller, Tim Coppens, and Umit Benan.

The Wall is captivating, fashion forward, and artistically made. The video utilizes new media and “vlogging” in a cool and edgy way. It is an advertisement for the brands by nature, but it feels more like a short film that you want to watch over and over again. It is an innovative way to present product and may be a new way for a collection to be shown–check it out and I bet you’ll agree.
