Over the weekend we headed out to the La Quinta Resort in the desert to celebrate our first anniversary. Neither one of us had ever been there and we were so impressed, it’s such a fun place that we can’t wait to go back to. A weekend just isn’t enough! Like I mentioned before, we wanted to pick a place with pretty much guaranteed sunshine and we had just that! If we had stayed near the beach we would not have been so lucky. #JuneGloom
Anyway… this tote was pretty much the first thing I packed and I will be using it so much this summer! It’s big enough to stash sun block, my kindle, a hair brush and so much more to take to the beach or pool. And just as chic to tote around resort style. This dress matched the spanish style of the resort perfectly… and was super comfortable after snacking all day.
Thanks for reading – have a great day!
Can you tell we’re headed somewhere warm? We didn’t want to risk being dissapointed by June Gloom so we picked a place with almost guaranteed sunshine. I can’t wait to get some sun in this bikini and wear this dress to dinner!
Are you in weekend countdown mode like I am?!
First off, how is it already June?! It’s so crazy to think that I’m getting married in less than two weeks now!
I told you I’d be living in rompers and espadrilles this summer. It’s just such a natural combo for me. This romper is another that’s just as easy to dress up as it is to dress down. I’m somewhere in the middle here, but swap my espadrilles for nude heels and lose the jacket and it would be the perfect look for a night out. Or, add flip flops and you’re even more casual and summer ready.

Hope you had a great weekend – thanks for stopping by!
We all know how important it is to have piece in our closet we can throw on any time something pops up and feel amazing. Staples that we grow to rely on that carry from year to year and season to season. To many, that item is a little black dress. While I do see the importance for an LBD I tend to gravitate more towards the lighter version, or as I call them LWD’s.
Like an LBD they are a blank canvas for you to style however your mood strikes. On this particular day we were experiencing a lot of wind and a little June Gloom (everyone in Southern California knows what I’m talking about) but I still wanted to feel beachy and summery. I jazzed up my white dress with blue accessories and my favorite rose gold iphone case, which helped me to warm up on this windy gloomy day.
I spent 4th of July in Orange County and it was so gloomy and cold it felt like June Gloom a month late. I was determined to wear my shorts but layered a sweater over my tank before going to a bbq at the beach. Luckily, even though the sun never really came out it warmed up enough to be comfortable in my layered patriotic outfit.
