Remember last week when I was talking about what I was going to wear to a wedding? Well I finally decided on this blue lace midi dress. It might look familiar because I also have it in red and white. It’s such a sweet dress and I love wearing it in every color. The lace detailing is so pretty and this color is absolutely perfect for a summer wedding.
In the summer my style turns as low maintenance as possible. I try to heat style my hair less, wear less makeup and pretty much simplify everything. My outfits basically consist of a single piece whether it’s a dress or romper, sandals and a pair of sunglasses. Of course I’ll add a denim jacket or sweater at night if I need the extra warmth – like I did in yesterday’s post. But I wanted to share some of my favorite pieces that make up my summer outfit recipe.
I’m such a sucker for palm printed anything. I have dresses, tops, pillows and even a roll of wall paper that’s sat in my house for months waiting to be hung. I know it’s a trendy print but I love it because it reminds me of summer and Palm Springs – my favorite things.
I wore this dress to dinner on my birthday Friday. It’s such a fun swingy dress that’s perfect for summer because it literally does not wrinkle. You can just throw it in your weekend tote and go… or tuck it away in a suitcase for a trip and not worry about bringing your steamer. Because let’s be honest, no one wants to steam anything on a hot summer day. Am I right?!
We are so excited to have a big backyard but since we’ve moved in it’s been a work in progress. We have all kinds of visions and ideas on how to transform the space… a big thing for us is outdoor living. Because we’re in southern California we have pretty good weather all year round and want to be able to really enjoy that. We’re taking ideas from our favorite place The Parker Palm Springsand trying to make them our own. I keep finding things I want to add, or find more affordable versions of so I’m pulling them all out for some #backyardgoals.
Hope you have a great Monday – thanks for reading!
I think every girl needs a fierce birthday outfit so I’m busting out this little red number today for mine! It’s fabulous and makes me feel like the salsa dancer emoji – AKA – perfect for my bday. We’re celebrating tonight at my favorite sushi spot, right on the water.
I thought about wearing this dress to a wedding this weekend, then I remembered my best friend Shelby once told me she thought it was inappropriate to wear red to a wedding. Something about upstaging the bride, and no one wants to do that! I’ve always just steered clear of the obvious; whites, ivories, nudes or even light blushes. So keeping that in mind… I decided to go a safer color route, thanks Shel!
