Sandy Season

July 13, 2015

Santa Monica, CA

Life at the beach is like one long vacation. While it’s a quick commute to my busy work world, this sleepy town is definitely becoming my new oasis. 

Refreshing and calm, ocean air and big beach waves have a way of reminding us that the world is so much bigger and more beautiful than we often remember. I love the constant reminder.

Between afternoon bike rides and naps in the sand, it’s an easy place to find happiness. Yesterday, I met up with a big group of neighbors and friends and we walked along Palisades Park to an outdoor brunch spot on Main Street.  I chose to wear this comfy striped maxi from Forever 21 with a sunhat, tribal necklace and my new Lauren Hope bracelet.  I love mixing standout jewelry pieces with a more basic canvas.  It allows for the accessories to really shine.  Because I knew we were going to be doing a bit of walking, I wore my comfy Kayla Sandals from Restricted Shoes. Perfect for an afternoon stroll, they pair well with just about everything in my summer wardrobe, adding a sunny burst of color to today’s look. 

Oh and don’t forget! Restricted Shoes is offering you guys 25% off sitewide for all full-priced items. Just use the code WK25.  Valid through July 31.

Work Mode

Today I'm slipping from weekend-to-work mode with my new button-up skirt.

Remember this piece from Friday's post?  Perfectly casual when paired with an airy blouse and denim jacket, it feels oh so polished today. I chose to team it with  a statement necklace from Rocksbox and collared jersey tank.  The neutral shades blend well, keeping my look office-ready and simplistic. So it's  official, I'm in love with this skirt and I'll be living in it this season.

Neutrals Are the New Black

Sometimes less really is more.

For a refreshing spring feel, reintroduce yourself light colors and neutral shades.  Today, I’ve decided to trade in my traditional LBD for this breezy slip dress from Ruche.  Delicate and feminine, it’s a flirty alternative to basic date night looks. Don’t you love the pretty pleats and ruffled neckline?

I think it pairs best with classic designs and colors so I chose to style it with nude ankle strap pumps, a pastel bracelet and an antique-feel necklace.
