Summer Feels


♫ Zella Day- Man on the Moon ♫ 


Wearing:

RoseGal floral printed kimono
Lee's vintage denim shorts
Thrifted straw bag
Zara sandals
Anneise hair barrette
UO sunnies 

It's been feeling like summer these last couple of days, we randomly had like 90 degree weather this past weekend so I finally got a chance to wear my usual summer uniform which is usually a lightweight top, denim shorts, sandals, and a straw bag. 
For that extra boho touch I added this RoseGal printed kimono which I just received. I absolutely love the navy color, the print, and the lightweight fabric which can be worn all summer long with dresses or over a bathing suit too! It automatically makes any basic outfit stand out and it looks cute opened or tied in a knot, like I did here, for more of chic yet casual look. What do you guys think?

Hope you guys enjoy your day! :)

Under the Jacaranda Tree


♫ Mesita- All Out in the Open ♫ 


Wearing:

Haute Couture jacket
Thrifted tee and belt
J Brand Jeans
Sam Edelman sandals
Marloe tote bag
UO sunnies

One of my favorite things about May are these lovely Jacaranda trees blooming everywhere! It's a lovely sight really. Although this was a random parking lot it still had this super cute baby Jacaranda tree and of course I had to snap some pics with it haha. After all that winter rain you just can't help but notice all the beautiful flowers and trees blooming everywhere...nothing compared to last year!

It's been a pretty busy and stressful week but I'm so glad the weekend is finally here! I don't have much planned this weekend other than maybe going to LA with friends but other than that just planning to lounge around and catch up with family :)

Any fun weekend plans for you guys?





Happy weekend!

Abbot Kinney Vibes


♫ Matt Costa- Good Times ♫ 


Wearing:

 Shein fringe kimono
Crossroads Trading Co top
Anneise rope necklace
UO sunnies
F21 lounge pants
Madewell sandals
Thrifted straw bag


Although overrated I still love playing tourist in Abbot Kinney. This is probably one of my favorite spots to chill at whenever I'm in Venice Beach, I just love exploring all the little hidden gems and art street murals around Abbot Kinney. There is so much art, diversity, and some of the best restaurants, concept stores, and cafes around there. You may even be lucky and bump into a couple celebs or bloggers while there, I always happen to recognize someone or spot some fashion bloggers since I guess it's always "happening" in Abbot Kinney haha. 

Some of my favorite stops in Abbot Kinney are BURRO, Gjelina, The Butcher's Daughter, Tumbleweed and Dandelion, Shuhari Matcha Cafe, and a bunch of other concept stores! It's so hard not to get lost in my own little world while window shopping and browsing through all the cute shops there!
Which ones are your fave?


My fave Tumbleweed and Dandelion interior decor shop!

Can I just move in here?!...loved the whole beach cottage rustic-chic vibes!


I found myself illustrated on a card in Urbanic Paper Boutique haha ...my sister pointed it out right away!

Santa Barbara Day Trip


♫ Alex Ebert- Broken Record ♫ 


Santa Barbara is one those perfect dreamy getaway spots for the weekend but in this case we went for a day trip and it was more than we needed. This city will always be one of my favorites because it has that cute small town feel and lazy beach town vibe! I love all the surrounding nature too from the open hills, flower fields, ranches, to the beach. It's a perfect escape to get away from all the city craze from LA, I love how laid-back it is out there and how there is always plenty to do and see.

One of my favorite spots in SB is of course State Street, which is pretty much the downtown of SB and a strip filled with restaurants, boutiques, cafes, and a bunch of other stores.  I love all the hidden streets and the beautiful Spanish style architecture almost everywhere you go, you're bound to see mosaics and tiles anywhere which I love! One of my other fave spots is the Santa Barbara Mission and of course we couldn't go out there without stopping by McConnell's Ice Cream, it's a MUST guys, I always stop there whenever I'm in Santa Barbara...that good! I know there are already some locations in LA but it originated in SB and it just tastes better out there too haha! I didn't get to snap pics of my ice cream (Coconut/toffee/almond flavor) since I devoured it within seconds!

Hope you all had a lovely weekend and Mother's Day!
More pictures coming your way :)




My nephew, Lukas, driving us around :P

Sista, Sista
