Cali Cool

Laidback Vibes
I am so fortunate to be living in Southern California.  To be able to wake up to sunshine 350 days of the year and enjoy summer weather in the winter, definitely puts a smile to my face.  I mean, who would complain?  This outfit has been pretty much my staple for the past month.  I have been a repeat offender…#guilty.  These are all timeless and basic staples I think every girl should have in her closet.  It’s easy to mix and match with other things, dress up or down.  For a day to night look, swap your sneakers for your favorite heeled bootie and throw on a bling statement necklace and BOOM … you are ready for a night out.   Happy Thursday!

About two weeks ago I had a random fun day with my sister at Old Town Pasadena. I love that area – shopping + good food, who could complain?  A food post will be coming shortly to give you a couple of good places to grub around the area.   I adore the architecture around Old Town as well.

The weather has been perfect here in California, warm enough to wear my denim shorts, but still cool enough to wear a light sweater.   I love how my sweater has holes on the shoulders too, it gives it just enough breeze to keep me cool.  The dolce vita wedges were a good find at this little boutique in San Francisco.  I actually own similar ones, but the wedge heel is a lot shorter.  Perfect shoe to wear with shorts and dresses.

The ombre sweater caught my eye right away, especially with its unique cut.  There’s something about the gradual fade from light to dark that intrigues me.  This can be a fun DIY with this sweater from target.  They have them in fun colors too!   All you need to do is cut some holes on the shoulders and you’re good to go!  Hope everyone is having a great week.


Sparkly Fun

Gold Cardigan: H&M + Shirt: Marc by Marc Jacobs + Pants: PacSun + Loafers: Topshop + Sunglasses: Thierry Lasry

This cardigan has been on repeat for awhile.  So fun and sparkly.  Plus, it could be easily dressed up over a cute dress and heels or dressed down with jeans and a tee.

TGIF everyone! I love casual Fridays at work. Soo happy this week is over too.  So ready for the weekend!
