This dress is an old favorite of mine. It’s so versatile that I’ve worn it to many parties, weekend outings and even to work several times. In the spring when it’s still a bit chilly, I love layering a sweater over it so it looks like an eyelet mini.
I wore it to lunch in Newport Beach over the long weekend, then on the walk back we stopped to take some pictures by the boats. I loved the way by blue and turquoise outfit looked with the boat and water backdrop.
Happy Labor Day! Hope you’re enjoying your long (last) summer weekend. I’ve spent mine all over Southern California – from Malibu to south Orange County.
I’ve been eying collar necklaces for a few months now so when I spotted this one at h&m I knew I had to get it! It adds so much to even the simplest look, like what I’m wearing here. But it will also be fun to add to a dressier top or dress to finish it off.
I know lots of people think this is “technically” the last day to wear white jeans, but I think that’s a dated rule. I plan on wearing mine for at least another month but probably longer… and I’ll switch to winter white when it finally cools down here. continue reading
Target does it again!
I’d been pining over this Wildfox sweater all summer, so I was elated when I spotted a similar sweater at Target last week. For about a tenth of the price of the Wildfox version it has the same star-y look. It’s lightweight but provides the right amount warmth, which makes it the perfect transition piece when the air gets crisper. I threw it on with my lace shorts and floral headband for a beach party over the weekend. It definitely kept me comfortable once the sun went down. continue reading
I love all things nautical, especially striped tees. When I saw this image on pinterest I was quickly inspired to put my own spin on the look. I could not find the original source of the image, so if anyone knows please let me know.
This whole look is flawless, but I especially love the effortless turban and imagine she’s carelessly strolling the cobblestone streets of Italy.
No cobblestone streets here, but this is what I came up with.
