CARRY ON

KTR_0221

Moving in our new place in Los Angeles was a tremendously awesome step. First of all, that meant we could finally give up on living in between two hotel rooms or air bnb’s. It also meat we could finally unpack our suitcases. For good! What a relief, you guys can’t even imagine. So, these last couple of days have kind of been about settling in and somehow finding some comfort in this big empty space. Adult life, here we are! It feels so strange to think that my first appartement is in Beverly Hills, so far away from my family and from what I’ve grown up with. Instead of everything I could have expected, I ended up surrounded by all these palm trees and this overwhelming Hollywood vibe that I used to only see in movies and TV shows. And well, it does it feel kind of crazy.

There are so many things to think about when you move in your first appartement. First of all, getting your paper work in order. And I am really, really… really bad at that kind of stuff. If there’s anything that I truly suck at in this world, it’s anything administrative. I always do everything last minute when it comes to office work. Even if it’s a question of paying one tiny bill or calling an insurance company, I’ll wait until the very last second to do it… But now that I am by myself, like a grown up, in my own place, I guess I don’t really have the choice anymore. Gotta get responsible. On the other hand, because we’ve still been kept so busy with work, we barely found time to furnish our place. Result is, it is pretty much empty. The only thing that somehow makes it look like someone’s actually living there is the big queen size bed in the middle of the bedroom. That’s pretty much it.

With that being said, our trips did kick off a couple of days ago. Even though we enjoyed a little break from travelling in L.A to get settled in, we are back on a crazy hazy whirl of trips planned for the next couple of weeks. And I honestly am so unbelievably excited. I have to say, I am so used to it at this point that I do miss it when I stay in one place for too long. I just can’t help it. I am writing this article from my hotel in Oxford, England, where’ve been invited to hold a speech in front of the University’s Students and I am seriously dying. I’m scared, happy, nervous and excited all at once. Also confused on how sick and insane it is that we actually got invited when I haven’t even graduated college. But it turns out, such as the other guests they had, rappers, actors, models, you don’t always need to follow a path to write a great story. You can create your own.

The images I am sharing with you today have been shot in L.A a few days ago as we were still crashing at the Standard hotel on Sunset Boulevard. A great place with a wonderful scenery and always really cool people hanging around. I remember it being so sunny and beautiful that day, which meant perfect occasion to be perfectly casual with a little spice of color and fun. I am always on the search for new bags and lately have been wearing a lot of red ones. The wonderful Rachna Malakni launched her bag company in Dubai called Native and this is one of the pieces from her stunning collection. I love how timeless, classic, so stylish and fashionable it looks. The texture of the leather is gorgeous and really enjoy how the golden logo sits on it. It was the perfect bag to carry around that day, adding a little pop of something extra special to this sunny afternoon.

where is you star necklace from?! i love it so much!

I like it how you combine neutral colors with a colorful purse. I also love doing this and a purse, especially when it is as pretty as yours made by Native, can change a complete outfit! Very nice!

Amazing bag and perfect pair of leather shorts! Good luck with all of the travels and it will be so nice for you to come back home to LA!

Love the little touch of snakeskin! It really sticks out against the red <3

xo kristen

Congratulations for the speech at the Oxford University and Good Luck! This outfit is absolutely amazing, it’s simple, casual and you look stunning, like always. Adore these leather shorts, they have a very original design and the style is so rock, the mix with the basic top is just perfect. These sandals are so cool, not my style but you know how to wear them to make them fabulous. The bag is super chic and the color is really beautiful. Great photos

It must be so exciting to finally have your own place and I guess it makes all of your work in LA much easier :)
I’m always pretty organized when it comes to administrative stuff,I don’t particularly like it,so the sooner I’m done with it, the better .)
Your outfit is super nice and I love that bag,it’s adorable.

It’s so cool that you can move to LA. But I can imagine how weird it’s feels to go so far away from home, for me it was a huge step to move 500 km away form my old home and in comparison to LA that’s nothing! And by the way I love your bag and the outfit!

Such a perfect casual outfit! And so in love with the red bag as the perfect eye-catcher for the look! <3

I seriously relate to this article so much. I’ve essentially been living out of a suitcase since I lost my apartment to my ex-boyfriend in 2013. I’ve only just now – two days ago! – finally moved to England and rented a place of my own. Moving my own things in and knowing that I won’t have to lug around suitcases anymore has brought me to tears. <3

Félicitations pour votre emménagement !! En effet, c’est un grand pas dans la vie d’adulte, et vous allez vite vous rendre compte qu’avec ça vient effectivement tout ce qui est papiers administratives. C’est le moins glamour de la chose, mais ça prouve qu’on est plus dans la phase “enfant qui dépend de ses parents”. C’est à la fois super flippant et super excitant ! Mais je ne m’inquiète pas pour vous qui avez affaire à un monde d’adulte depuis bien longtemps !

J’aurais beaucoup aimé pouvoir vous croiser au détour de tous vos voyages européens (français notamment… Paris, Cannes…).

J’adore les photos et ta tenue. Bravo au photographe !

What stunning photos- you look gorgeous!!

I am so jealous!!! I live in London and I really wanted to go see the speech in Oxford but I am in the middle of my exams so I can’t travel :( I hope I will be able to watch on periscope… and I wish you the best of luck with your speech! :))

Amazing, this outfit is really cool, your bag is amazing!!

That is so strange (in a nice way) reading how you’re getting situated in a city that I have been situated in nearly all my life. I like reading about your adventures in Los Angeles, and how excited you are about it! I hope your apartment is amazing, just like the Native purse, haha. Such a cool concept to have the buckle off-center.

And congrats on the apartment girl! While mine is probably a fraction of the size of yours, I moved into my very own one here in the middle of Paris. Not bad, a first apartment in Paris! And I’m far from home as well, ironically, I left LA a year ago :)

Congrats on all of your success!

Love the pictures but it’s too bad they look like they have been really too retouched.
You have no skin texture and it’s just not natural at all.

That’s a pity cause I’m sure you’re really beautiful without that !

Anyway, love the look and the way you match this basical look with chic accessories and hair style.

Your makeup is always so perfect. Flawless!
