Marina Recap: World Cup & Wedding Whirl

recap

Hopped off the plane from LAX with a dream and a leather jacket… and snatched a couple winks of sleep before waking up at the crack of dawn (9AM) before zooming straight to Stylehaüs! My business is my baby (sorry Ben) so no matter how much fun I’m having on a trip, returning home is a welcome relief. With all the exciting changes and projects looming in the upcoming months, there’s little time to loaf around. And I’m ok with that. Here are some highlights of last week’s whirlwind of friends and family!

Work Hard Play Hard Need Nap

After landing in NYC late the night before, I worked a full but super productive day at stylehaüs, then made it to xiv for my good friend Dean May’s birthday.

It was a classic Summer white party and I had an amazing time grooving in the DJ booth with Paul Oakenfold, a great artist and one of Ben’s good friends.

The spot was packed with gorgeous Hollywood types and everyone got super into sets from Oakenfold and the EC Twins.

I wore: a Cosabella bra, David Lerner white cotton tank top, white Superfine jeans, and Nike wedges.

I’ve got the blues… The leather jacket blues.

All #summer really means for us at @stylehausla is lighter colored leather

I wore: Topshop jeans, Rag & Bone booties, and two jackets from stylehaus. The blue and white floral print on the left is VEDA, and blue knitted leather jacket on the right is by Price Upon Request.

Blue Hat At Bar Marmont

Ben and I grabbed dinner and drinks at the ever-glam Bar Marmont for some much needed mushy couple time.

Hot Dog Before Julio

Ben and I watched the World Cup in style at our friend’s new place in the Hills. As much as I love tequila, I was loving those hot dogs more.

I wore: Benjamin J beige tank top, Topshop black jeans, and trusty Converse. 

USA USA USA YAY

Not to be superstitious, but I swear my photos are lucky. The shot was taken literally seconds before USA scored a crucial goal. How cute are Ben and his friend in their matching pink button ups? I was calling them the Pink Gents all day.

View From The Top

When I say a house is amazing, that house is freakin phenomenal. Here I am accompanied by Sarah making the most of a beautiful view before Sunset. Her white crochet dress is to die for.

PhotoBooth For Life

Photobooths are like amazing toys for adults. Like grown up legos. If we’re hanging out and I see a photobooth available, you know we’ll be taking some weird and wonderful pictures.

Stanford Stadium

6.30

After a wonderful week, Ben and I took a quick trip to Stanford for his sister’s wedding. In a stroke of brilliance that my bridezilla self may or may not slightly envy, his sister held her rehearsal dinner at Stanford Stadium, where she met her husband. I can’t even compete. But I’ll try.

I wore: Balenciaga suspender harem pants, Christian Dior Jazz shoes, Pierre Hardy purse, and vintage striped top. 

The Family Stone/Kusin

My future in-laws are a damn good-looking crowd. How dapper is Ben? The only one not thrilled is that baby, who looks ready for a nap .

Little Fashion: Style Comes in All Sizes

As we obsessed over photos of little fashionistas, we came across the Instagram account Fashion Kids. From there it was a black hole of mini gladiator sandals, beanies, sneakers and sunnies. To think fashion inspiration is coming from a well dressed three or five-year old is unbelievable but you know what….believe it! We think it’s safe to say that Suri Cruz started this whole kids of fashion trend and we fully support it. They may not be celebrity children, but they deserve the spotlight. Moms, you have done well and we salute you with this “mini” fashion tribute.

BEANIES

@miss_gabby_13@miss_gabby_13

Genesis and her little California style is keeping us on our A-game with beanie after beanie. If you’re not familiar, us Cali girls tend to rock this trend year round and this peanut sized hipster knows what style is all about.

FAUXHAWK/POMPADOUR

@gavinduh@gavinduh

It’s obvious that four-year old Gavin has some mini swagger with his denim on denim look but we are obsessing over the hair. Need we say more? Not really. He speaks for himself on YouTube.

MENSWEAR INSPIRED

@ewkak@ewkak

Three years old never looked so adorable, especially when it’s menswear inspired. Side zip skinny khakis and Converse inspired kicks caught our eye on this fashion trend of girls rocking it just like the boys. Three year old Michelle shows us grown ladies how it’s done.

SUSPENDERS

@marioyannis@marioyannis

Mario and his suspenders. Ugh…you are a site to see little man. Is it us or does he have a David Beckham/European style going on? Three years old has treated you well. We can’t wait to see year four. Check him out on Twitter @YanisMario.

VESTS

@_heatherrl@_heatherrl

Ev knows street style and there is no question about it. An oversized camo vest shows off a little bit of rocker and we are completely convinced. Little lady, you wear it well.

SUNNIES

@olkafiolka@olkafiolka

A five-year old who loves beau hudson? Umm yes please. Little Liam is a boy with style and we are feelin’ the “Bruno Mars if he wore aviators” vibe he has going on.

TOP KNOT

@hails_world@hails_world

Haileigh is taking over the world at four years old and with this look and a killer top knot, we can see how she’s doing just that. This little fashionista knows when to keep it sleek and when to let her hair down.
