The Last Summer Post

It's finally starting to get a little chilly in LA. Not proper midwest chilly, but just enough to pull off bare legs and a sweater. This post however, is not about that. This is about one of the last looks I shot before switching to semi-Fall mode. It's mainly about the top though. A flimsy piece of nothing I completely fell in love with. I think it was the simplicity of it all. Just some fabric held together by a couple of strings... and the way it moves when the wind catches it, that's pretty lovely too.

Since I've been gone for a zillion years, tomorrow I'm posting a little Instagram catch-up from my first half year in the sunny coast. Lots of palm trees and beach days involved.

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


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 ;)
