Retro Watercolor


Have you ever gone shopping and crushed so hard on something you wanted to wear it right out of the store? Well, that's exactly what happened when I saw this d.RA dress. I'll admit to having way too many cute little floral dresses already, but I just couldn't resist a summery watercolor take on my favorite print. Even better that it comes in a flattering retro shape and has the slightest hint of shimmer. I was so smitten I ditched the outfit I intended to shoot and captured my newest find instead. In the future, I plan on toughening it up with docs and a leather jacket and once the temp drops, layer it under a chunky sweater with riding boots. Oh, the possibilities...

Seafoam Green

TS_DesertDweller_10

Normally I try to spend my wardrobe budget wisely, saving for quintessential pieces I'll be able to wear for a long time or wardrobe staples like a perfectly slouchy white tee. When I received a Forever 21 gift card a while back, it was the perfect opportunity to have a little fun and try some novelty pieces instead. I ended up with a baggy fringe sweater, a bomber jacket with roses embroidered on the back and this beaded seafoam green dress I had yet to wear.

I finally broke it out for an afternoon of cocktails and food by the beach. Slip dresses have long been my go-to for an easy throw on and be out of the door look, but I like how the beading on the front makes this piece extra special. When you're petite wearing one big block of color can swallow your frame, so I added an acid-wash chambray shirt to help break it up and to define my waist. It was also nice to have an extra layer to throw on for a walk on the beach afterwards - that ocean breeze can get super chilly once the sun begins to set. As for the shoes, you can never go wrong with a basic nude sandal. These are obviously crazy easy to walk and look great with most color combos.

PS. I have a super fun colab coming up to help make this summer your most gorgeous one yet! Stay tuned ;)

Schoolgirl Vibes

TS_SchoolGirl_07

Hey guys, hope you all had a great weekend! I had guests staying over for LA Pride and they brought me along to experience the festivities for the first time. My favorite part was the parade, it was heart-warming to see so many people come together to celebrate love and acceptance. Other than that I was a total hermit, mostly staying home binge watching season 2 of Orange is the New Black - can you even blame me? As for this black and white look, I like that it's simple but still a little sassy thanks to the relaxed tie waist blouse and flouncy skirt. I added the white sandals to keep things basic and modern. I think it would also look great with white Birkenstocks for a more sporty vibe. I love my prints for summer, but there's nothing like b&w to hit the refresh button.

♥, T
