summer vibes

When it comes to summer styles, I think there is nothing more fitting than adding a little boho twist to your usual staples.  In my case, a little embroidery goes a long way in achieving that slightly western vibe.

the layered white shirt

borrowed borrowed1 borrowed4 borrowed3Lately, I’ve been infatuated with the bustier over white shirt look.  I’ve always been partial to it but could never find the perfect lace or leather bustier.  I might not be looking hard enough since I keep seeing great versions all over Instagram.  Since I haven’t quite found the one for me yet, I switched things up a bit and layered the white shirt with a bustier dress instead.

P.S. How gorgeous are these heels?  My sister recently went on a shoe binge and these are the results.  I had to steal them for a bit.  Can’t resist such gorgeous things!

I don’t know why but I fidget constantly at the theaters.  I can’t wear any pants because I tend to get so uncomfortable so I almost always go with a dress or a skirt on.  Comfort is key when watching an almost 3 hr movie such as The Wolf of Wall Street.

Otherwise, It was a weekend filled with lattes and plenty of beach time.  Of course I managed to squeeze a small shopping session in but since I’m gearing up for an upcoming NY trip, I decided to be good and just came away with a plain tee.  Can’t wait for another amazing weekend getaway!

I’m in LA again! And not surprisingly, it was gloomy once again so I’m super glad that I thought to bring my trusty leopard jacket with me.

What do you think of repeat outfits?  I’m a bit ashamed to admit that I constantly wear the same things, especially when I really like them!   Sometimes my sister has to beg me to stop wearing a particular shirt because its the only thing she sees me in for a week straight.  True story.

P.S. Enjoying a cold one at Father’s Office.  It’s a must stop for me whenever I’m in LA because its my favorite spot for an awesome burger and beers!

Summer Perfect

I’m so ready for summer! I had these blue Supergas in mind to wear with this outfit but didn’t get around to purchasing them yet. I don’t know why I can’t get around to spending money on those sneakers, especially since I had my eyes on them forever now. Regardless, after I purchased this headband, it just made more sense to pair the outfit with these brown loafers. I like how the subtle bits of orange on the headband hits off with the rich cognac leather.
