Ultimate L.A. girl Whitney Port is dishing with us on festival feels, workout routines and smoothie recipes...

Whitney Port knows a thing or two about living well. This fashion designer and style icon might have a million titles under her belt, but being busy doesn’t keep her from being balanced. By knowing when to hit the gym and when to hit the pinot, or when to stay in and when to step out, Whitney has mastered the concept of moderation without ever compromising her (obsession-worthy) style.

As our April Guest Editor, Whitney is dishing with us on living well while in L.A. (where the staying in/going out ratio is crucial) and handling the frenzy of festival season without losing her cool.

After years of appearing on screens of all sizes, Whitney now crushes it as the creative head of her own namesake fashion line. Each collection’s custom prints and modern pieces are nods to the laid back femininity and savvy chic that Whitney has become so well-loved for.

To kick off our month with Whitney, we’re spenidng the morning inside her sweet California abode talking smoothies, cycling and everything else that keeps her grounded, happy and in good spirits. Join us all month long, as we chat festival season survival, Instagram feels, and the best places to eat in LA!
