A high-waisted skirt paired with a crop top is an easy outfit that always make me feel pulled together. There’s just something so lady-like about skirts like this one and love how I feel like I’m playing dress up, but as an adult!
I went a little nautical here with this red bag and Hermes scarf that I’ve had for years. I actually got at a vintage store shortly after I graduated college and moved to LA. I felt like I found gold and bought it and have treasured it since.

Thanks for stopping by – enjoy your day!
Two piece sets are the gift that keeps giving. You get two outfits in one! This one is especially cool because I have a weakness for blue and white stripes. I was organizing my closet last weekend and realized I have like 6 blue and white striped button downs. All different, of course. I mean, if loving blue and white stripes is wrong, I don’t wanna be right.
Because this top is a longer crop top it will mix well with so many things! I can already see myself wearing it with white shorts to the beach and maybe with some high-waited flares to work. If I can do at least two different looks with the top and two with the skirt – I can get five outfits out of this set. Money well spent.
Happy Thursday – thanks for reading!
Even though I live in Southern California I love wearing coats when I’m cold (when it’s below 65). This bright pink colorblocked number was a recent find that will go with so many things even though its so bold. I can’t wait to pair it with an LBD or a blush dress. I went with a nautical-ish look here and added a beanie… my fav (at the moment) accessory.
I know I shouldn’t pick favorites, but this was my favorite look from my Swimspot collab. It was also the first look we shot so I look the freshest.. haha! I adored everything about this mis-matched bikini and white terry cloth coverup. I am know to never match my bikini top to my bottom, but I do love to coordinate them. I can’t wait to wear this bikini all summer long!
Once the temps heat up I am always sucked back into the nautical trend. Although that traditionally means red, white and blue, I’ve partnered with the gorgeous Amy from Leopard and Lillies to bring you a new take on this fun trend.
Amy is an American living abroad in Dubai with her husband and cute dog… I always love seeing how chic she looks and living vicariously through her worldly travels. If you’re not familiar with her blog, make sure to check it out!
Can you believe I’m wearing this skort again?! Totally my spring/summer uniform this year and I’ll make no apologies for it. I paired it with this navy and white striped top and added a fun twist with this neon yellow sunflower necklace and bronze sandals. This makes me want to set sail but I settled for at least being boat-side.
