Whenever I like certain clothing items, I like to create a mood board around them to create a story and a feel that will help me when I’m trying to style myself.

One of the things I miss about home is the funny British sayings. Here at Free People I get a lot of people confused when things like “I’m just going to pop over”, “He’s full of beans”, “I had to scarper”, and “you’re off your trolley” slip out of my mouth.

This spring, utility and khaki are on our minds… that effortless, casual-cool look. We love the idea of teaming pretty tops with khaki bottoms like Victorian blouses or floral camis, and then adding some attitude boots. It creates a perfect balance of boy/girl and a perfect look to wear on those sunny spring days when all you want to do is be outside riding your bike, sitting in the park, or going on hikes.

The streets of LA smell like jasmine, it’s true! Every morning when we left The Chamberlain, our senses were woken by sweet flowering scents making us drift happily through the West Hollywood hills. The LA voyage was a research trip where our buyers seek vintage finds for inspiration for future trends.
