Not so mellow yellow

I've never been one to shy away from color. Sure, black and neutrals are always safe but something about this neon green/yellow always catches my eye. Lately, I've noticed an increase of this happy color in my closet and this jacket has become my go to piece when I want a bold pop of color perfect for Summer! What are your favorite go to Summer colors this season?

Beach day

{ ANGL dress // Zara sandals {sale!} // Random fedora hat // Balenciaga handbag // Free People lace bralette // Gorjana Bar Necklace // Etsy Turquoise long Druzy Necklace c/o Moose & Niguel// Cuffs: Martha Calvo, David Yurman, Charriol}

With an upcoming anniversary trip quickly approaching, I've been on the hunt to find effortless airy dresses, jumpers and kaftans to throw on every day to make our transition from bed to breakfast a piece of cake.  When I spotted this dress I was hesitant at first if I would get good use out of it, but the cut and style was exactly what I had in mind and it came in my favorite colors, black and white. I snagged both and I'm glad I did.  The easy flow and cut of the dress makes it ideal for a vacation, the T-cut back, revealing a hint of midriff was just the look I was going for, and it was perfect for the beautiful weather this past weekend.  Summer is here, check; ends of hair lightened, check; airy fun dress, check; now, here's to hoping I find that perfect jumper, any suggestions?

P.S.- Be sure to check back on the blog this week for an upcoming Fourth of July giveaway featuring the Sea Green Druzy necklace I'm wearing above from Moose & Niguel, perfect for laying with other long necklaces this Summer! Details on how to enter will be revealed later this week. xx

Unintentionally { Patriotic }

{ Michael Kors Sunnies  //  Zara Blazer // AG Jeans {similar} // Valentino heels // Equipment tank // Vintage Chanel bag // Saint Laurent ring // Alexis Bittar necklace}
This red blazer has become a staple in my closet. It's one of those items that go really well with everything; great for an added pop of color, dressed up with black skinnies or with jeans and a tank as I did today for my casual business meeting.  For some odd reason, I'm not your average blue jeans type gal. Jeans in general just aren't my thing.  I've always felt restricted and confined; until I met these AG Jeans. 100% the most comfortable jeans I own {which is A LOT!}, side note: also the reason they've been on repeat. They're not too high or low and they have just enough stretch to be comfortable but not lose their shape after a couple wears. Do any of you guys have a favorite brand of jeans that you can't live without? Please let us know below since we're always looking for the perfect pair of jeans...so far, this is the closest I've come!

Abstract

{ F21 blazer & jogging trousers // Zara Tank {available in stores} // Zara Sandals // Loeffler Randal Satchel // Michael Kors watch // Stella McCartney sunnies // OPI's Tasmanian Devil Made Me Do It nail polish }
I've been living in various "jogging trousers" as of late and I can't get enough.  Easy to dress up or down without that "trying too hard" vibe and when styled correctly, looks fresh and "nouveau." Don't get me wrong, the look of classic jeans or skinny jeans will forever be around, but it's been nice to switch it up a bit with this unpredictable June Gloom {feels like it's December around here}.  Looking forward to the Summer Solstice this weekend and turning the page to a new season, and of course that little whispering reminder in my ear... vacationnnnn...

White // on // white
with Leopard

{Chloe sunnies // Jeans {similar style here}, blouse and vest, Zara // Louboutin Heels // Jerome Dreyfuss Bag // J.Crew Neon necklace, leopard bracelet & pave chain bracelet // Revlon Orange Flip Lipstick }
There's something so fresh about an {almost} all white ensemble with a few pops of color here and there. Naturally, this Jerome Dreyfuss bag stole the show.  Its vibrant leopard stands out among the white and light blue, making this an ideal summer uniform that I could get used to. Keep the same head to toe look with light/white hues and play around with skirts, shorts, skorts, and some sneak peeks of vibrant colors. Ta-da!

Blue skies

{ Wish Blouse // Topshop Skirt {similar style here} // Louboutin Pigalle heels // Dior sunnies // J.Crew belt // Vintage Clutch  // Martha Calvo cuffs }
Last weekend, while visiting Gabrielle in Santa Barbara, we  decided on an impromptu ladies brunch at this new boutique hotel she had mentioned called El Encanto. On our way there we drove past this bluff with such a breathtaking view of the ocean that we just had to stop and snap a few shots. It was a perfect 78 degrees and the color and style of this skirt paired with the offset of the neutral crochet top felt just right for the occasion. The skater style skirts and dresses have really become a staple in my wardrobe since they accentuate the waist yet are flattering and feminine. If you guys are ever in Santa Barbara, you absolutely must get drinks or have a bite at our new favorite spot! You can check out El Encanto here.

A tropical affair

{Zara Skort // Elizabeth & James blouse {old} // Nine West heels // Balenciaga handbag // Chloe sunnies // BCBG cuff // NARS Red Square matte lip}
There are a slew of reasons why I don't have a love affair with classic shorts.  The above pictured "skort" is reason number 1. I think the last time skorts were popular was probably the early 90's {OG 90210, anyone?}, and I'm not sure why they ever went out of style. Easy enough to move and sit freely but still chic and practical. Everything about the architectural lines, the flattering shape and the overall silhouette...they was such an instant winner, I purchased them in all 3 colors. Skorts are definitely making a comeback this season, and you should probably hop on the bandwagon. Just sayin...

Desert Dreams


{Tank, B-jewel // shorts, Santee Alley score // Hat, Minnetonka for Free People // Booties, Mossimo Supply Co // Necklace, Alexis Bittar // Balenciaga handbag; Jewelry: Martha Calvo bracelets; YSL ring }
This past Memorial Day weekend's weather was absolutely beautiful and quite the perfect opportunity to debut the new shorts I scored at Santee Alley in Downtown LA. I hadn't been there in years but a friend insisted that we go because she recently found some cute and inexpensive items down there. It's hard to justify spending a ton of money on such trendy items like these shorts, which I've seen sold for six times the price at Planet Blue and LF stores, so I was thrilled when I came across them. The key to shopping and editing your wardrobe is knowing when to splurge on investment items and when not to. Personally, I tend to invest in classic pieces and items I will wear for many years to come. The booties are another inexpensive find at none other than Target! The shorts and booties combo was quite the perfect pairing and I know I'm going to get a ton of use out of both of them this summer.
