Happy weekend, you guys! I’m writing this from the plane cuz I’m on my way to Miami. It’s my bff’s bachelorette party, meaning that 8 of us are convening in Miami for some sun, drinks, and girl time. It’s kinda crazy to admit it, but this is my first bachelorette party and my first time visiting Miami… and I’ve never traveling with 7 other women before. Adventures all around! I’ve been mentally preparing myself by watching this. Juuuust kidding.
It’s really starting to get hot here! I couldn’t be more excited for the early preview of summer weather, but my wardrobe just isn’t prepared for all this sunshine yet. It’s time to unpack the cutoffs and find my new go-to maxi dress for the season. Pair with a cute pair of clogs and get picnic ready!
I’m a little obsessed with the gorgeous back of the Kimchi Blue Baby Bud Cap-Sleeve Maxi Dress from Urban Outfitters (pictured above). This rosebud print cap-sleeve beauty is lined, so no stickiness on super warm days and has the cutest lattice lace insets all over. Perfect for summer strolls or twirling in a field of wildflowers, you know, the usual.
See that image? Yeah, that’s kinda how I feel today, at the end of this long, long week.
I am so ready for a weekend, you guys. I’ve been struggling to keep up with everything: work, exercise, house projects, sleep, personal time. These next 2 days are totally welcome. Not that I’ll be taking off any time because… we’re hoping to launch a totally redesigned site next week! We’ve had this hot pink, modern look for about 3 years and it’s time to make a change. New layout, new logo, new colors… it’s gonna be GOOD. I’m planning to spend my weekend cleaning up old posts, re-categorizing things, and (hopefully) making this a way more functional, inspirational place for you. I say this without hyperbole: I cannot wait for you guys to see it!
When the summer sun is in full force, nothing feels nicer than pulling on a light, billowy peasant top. Made in a wide array of light-weight fabrics, interesting cuts and detailed embroidery, this piece is a staple in my modern-boho wardrobe.
You guys… I love denim. Like, really really love. Trends may come and go, but a good pair of jeans will always be there for you. This season there’s a lot of great denim options, but my favorite’s definitely got to be flared jeans. This figure-flattering style is straight out of the ’70s, slim through the waist and thighs with ankles that bell out. Continue reading “5 cool flared jeans”
Clogs are my go-to summer shoe. With sturdy wooden platforms in an array of colors and styles, this is one of the most versatile supporting characters in my wardrobe. They go with everything: denim skirts, overalls, and skinny jeans, just to name a few!
The Lotta Clog from Free People might be the perfect picnic shoe. It’s adjustable ankle strap and textured rubber soles make it super wearable, with that classic wooden heel and leather construction for a vintage inspired look. Pair with released hem jeans or a cotton summer dress for a sunny day look.
There’s something about this time of year that makes me want to totally change up my wardrobe. Maybe it’s because I’ve been wearing the same vintage flannel shirt and boyfriend jeans all winter? Anyways, it’s day 2 of the Shopbop Friends & Family Sale, which means I’m stocking up in a BIG way. Here are some of my favorite picks for the upcoming spring and summer.
I feel like these pieces totally merge my boho-meets-modern aesthetic in a way that’s fresh. It sort of looks like I’m eternally on a tropical vacation, huh? Maybe that’s the theme of my summer look this year…
