beat the heat

Sweet summertime was slipping from our fingertips until the west coast got a MAJOR heat wave. The solution? As little clothing as possible, of course!

9th & Elm is this incredible site that hosts time sensitive flash sales for adorable and affordable handmade and independent designs! I snagged this Art of Wear skirt for under $50, the perfect statement skirt for me! I paired it with a simple crop top and my favorite nude strappy sandals. Accessorized by the sun in my face, as always!

the perfect printed sundress

A simple summer dress for a perfect summer day. My friend Crystal and I were driving home from a long (but incredible) trip to Big Sur and we stopped in a little Dutch town called Solvang. We walked around, bought fudge, ate meatballs, and fed ostriches. 

It was blistering hot and a lightweight dress was the only way to go! Plus, who wouldn't want to wear something with pom-poms on it?

it's still summertime

I don't think summer ever truly ends here in Southern California, but we pretend that winter is a real thing here and bundle up anyway. Since it's still hitting the 90 degree temps here regularly, I'm still dressing like it's summertime... and I don't plan on packing up my summer style anytime soon.

Light flowing layers allow some relief from the September heat while my hat and sunnies block the sun. Are you still wearing your summer wardrobe?
