BETTER THAN A FLOWER GARDEN

LACMA

I went to New England this past weekend to celebrate Mother's Day with my family and while a weekend is a bit ambitious for a coast-to-coast trip, I was able to pack in a lot. One of the highlights was our visit to the Tower Hill Botanical Gardens. I went with my Mum and sister and none of us had ever been, so it was fun to try something new. There were wooded trails, outdoor art, and fields and fields of fresh flowers. Everything seemed to be blooming and as an LA lady who doesn't really get to explore seasons, it was nice to get into the spring spirit. 

Now if a garden tour is not exactly in your future, you can also swing into spring by upgrading your wardrobe. This chiffon beauty from Chicwish is the equivalent of buying yourself a fresh bouquet of flowers (that never dies). Not only does it have a wispy watercolor design, but the chiffon material and flowy fit make it flattering on just about every body type. In case this one isn't totally your style, I have linked more of my favorite floral maxi dresses below.

COMFY & CHIC

As much as I love dressing up for a night on the town or a dinner with friends, sometimes comfort is all I really want (especially after a long day of travel). I've learned that wearing a laid-back look doesn't mean you have to compromise on your personal style. In fact, casual doesn't actually have to be all that casual. 

Alas, this Morning Lavender jumpsuit proves that cozy and chic can be done! Paired with nude sandals, it's a throw-on-and-go type of outfit that works for day or night. Paired here with simple jewelry from my new Aurate curated jewelry box and a hair scarf, it's perfect the perfect look for an afternoon date.

VACATION VIBES

I don’t have any upcoming island escapes planned but this tiered dress has me feeling inspired to book one! With a flirty hemline and a pretty floral print, it’s the perfect dress to toss in your suitcase and wear to the pool AND the dinner party afterwards. I threw it on for drinks downtown a few weeks ago, when we had a bit of a heatwave here in LA, but I plan on wearing it on my TBD tropical trip (we’ll see if that happens!) as well. I paired it with some comfy heeled yellow sandals, a woven basket handbag and the cutest (most affordable) hair clip I own! And, vacation or not, I have a feeling you’ll be seeing a lot more of this number.
