I hope you all had a fantastic weekend, it’s crazy that March is almost over! I wore this great fit and flare dress over the weekend. I bought it from Anthropologie a few years ago and wore it to my college graduation! I actually forgot how cute this dress is on- such a great print and shape. I’ll have to start wearing it more often, especially now that it’s warmer!
Do you ever forget about certain items in your closet? How do you re-wear older pieces in your closet like they are new?
Happy Monday Everyone! Over the weekend, I purchased a new pair of Ray Bans- how perfect are they for Spring & Summer?!? We are loving that the weather is getting warmer!
I love this cotton black dress- I’ve had it for years. It is such a great piece that I can either dress up or dress down. I added this great bandana I purchased from Madewell. It’s such a great thing to add to an outfit for edge or on my purse as an accessory. I really like the camo and bandana together- brings some edge to a typical LBD!
The transition from Winter to Spring has been quite fast here in California! It is going to be almost 75 degrees this weekend! We don’t know about you, but we aren’t ready to give up our Winter style yet. Here is how we both (yes we both own the exact same outfit) like to throw in a little new Spring with our Winter favorites.
It is all really around the striped shift dress. You all know we love a good stripe! Even though you can wear this piece all year round, we are feeling it is very Spring forward right now. Mix in a utility jacket, which is also great all year round, and you have little coverage for the cold nights. I wear this utility jacket with so many different outfits- it is a staple for any wardrobe. Check out the ones at Aritzia for a variety of options.
Literally IT WAS SO HOT YESTERDAY!! San Jose was in the triple digits- which is incredibly hot for us here in Northern CA. When it gets this warm (which it rarely does happen) we really like to wear dresses- they’re so simple and easy! I love this one I found at Hautelook last month from WOW Couture which is so Missoni esque. I love the fit and flare shape coupled with a fun zig/ zag print. It makes for such a perfect summer dress. I’ve worn it for a date night and it worked great!
In addition to dresses, we love to wear wedges in the Summer. We’re not quite sure if it’s their comfortability or their simplicity but wedges are absolutely our go-to shoe for warmer weather. I’ve raved about these Dolce Vita wedges before- I love the strapped shape and the tassel detail- also, how perfect is the color and the material?!?! They are some of my favorite shoes of all time.
Lately Lauren and I have been really into easy casual looks- maybe its the warmer weather or maybe we will just always be California Cool at heart. I found this maxi dress when I was in LA last month and honestly I can not stop wearing it! The patterned detail on the skirt is so boho & coupled with the cut out black top its super chic and fun to wear. It’s also light and airy which is absolutely perfect for being casual.
I also found this necklace when I was in LA as well- while I was on Abbot Kinney I found Roya De Rose in a pop up shop. She has the most incredible hand made pieces. I can not say enough about them- seriously, click the link below and you will not be disappointed. She goes to a lot of events (at festivals etc), so be sure to check to see if she’s near your city soon!
Hi All! Did you guys have a good first day of Summer yesterday?? I hope you all celebrated with a great margarita or by the beach/ pool, I know I did. I just got back from an amazing trip to LA last week. Every Summer my Aunts, my Mom and my Cousin all go on an annual girls trip. We’ve been to so amazing places (Miami, New York, Chicago, LA) I feel so fortunate! I’m so lucky that we get to spend time together traveling every Summer- I have such great memories! One of my favorite things we did in LA (besides eat and shop) was seeing a taping of The Voice- are you guys fans of the show?!? I’m so in love with Adam and Blake. It was an incredible experience… I highly recommend going if you’re in the area. We got our tickets through 1iota– they were the best-the staff was so fun and nice! They also have tickets in NY as well for some late night shows- check them out!
Right now, I am currently in Healdsburg- my parents have some property up here. We’ve lucked out because the weather has just been perfect. It’s the place I love to go to when I need to relax, which I needed considering I start Summer school tomorrow- ew. Anyways, I’m totally loving this Madewell hat I bought last month. It was on sale and its just so perfect for shading my face during the Summer!
Lauren and I really love these vests as well. Regardless of the season, layering is so crucial and this vest is perfect for layering in Summer and will be perfect for the Fall. We’re also loving long gold jewelry right now- I mean what outfit doesn’t look good with some gold. These booties are the absolute best color and texture-I typically love to pair them with really feminine pieces but they look equally good with causal wear as well. Check out Sam Edelman for more fun booties, I think one of the best places to look would be at Nordstrom.
Luna loves it up here just as much as I do… so much to explore! Have an amazing week everyone! P.S. does anyone have a good watermelon margarita recipe?!? I recently had one and am totally obsessed 🙂
Happy Memorial Day weekend to you all!!! We could not be more excited to have a long weekend- does anyone have fun plans for the day off?? For us, Memorial Day marks the beginning of Summer- can we just say FINALLY. Summer has to be our favorite season- great weather, great vacations and of course great casual wear.
In California, short-shorts and crop tops are essentially a Summer staple look- no, seriously we can’t scroll through our Instagram feed without seeing 99.9% of girls in high-waisted shorts and crop tops. While we love this carefree look, sometimes it can become too redundant. In order to avoid this, we are loving certain easy breezy accessories such as Kimonos.
Kimonos are absolutely perfect for Summer because they instantly make you feel like a boho princess- they are super light and usually have the perfect amount of fringe. The kimono Danielle is wearing below is a great cover-up for that really harsh Summer sun and you won’t feel overheated (um and it’s totally adorable and not to mention comfortable)!! Danielle first bought it when she went to Stagecoach a few weeks ago and still loves incorporating it into her everyday wear. Pair a Kimono with your typical shorts and crop top, a great hat and of course loads of accessories and you’ll feel like you’ve completely upgraded your usual Summer wear.
We are absolutely loving Kimonos for Summer weather- they are perfect for a day at the beach, when you’re on vacation or when you’re at your favorite summer concert!
Again, Happy Memorial Day everyone! Have a fabulous and safe weekend!!
