SWIM SEASON

Venice Beach, CA

IMG_9290_edit.jpg

Summer is just around the corner, which means it's time to talk about all things swimwear! And while some people may overindulge in shoes or hats, I am the person who buys more swim options than I can wear in a season. To kick things off, I am sharing a trendier, off-the-shoulder favorite from Revolve, and a more classic style from a newer brand called Hermoza. Both looks offer something different but the one thing they have in common? They're both flattering.

If you're looking for a style that doesn't show too much skin, Hermoza has an incredible selection of pretty prints and designs to choose from. It's a great company to check out if you're a bit more conservative in your beachwear but still want to look stylish. Oh, and the quality is impeccable! This timeless navy set is one that I'll be wearing a lot this summer (and every summer for the foreseeable future!)

Alternatively, this striped off-the-shoulder suit is one to add if you're looking for something a bit more unique. Not only does the top have a super flirty silhouette, but the ties on the waist and top give it an ultra-feminine feel. Oh and my favorite part? It includes a matching scrunchie! 

So, which style is your favorite?

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

Venice, CA

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. 

Jumpsuit: c/o Morning Lavender

Bar Stud Earrings: c/o Aurate

Circle Pendant Necklace: c/o Aurate

Sandals: ASOS

Hair Scarf: Vintage (similar)
