Vintage Pop-Up


♫ Fleetwood Mac- Gypsy ♫ 


Hey lovelies!

I hope you guys had a great weekend!
I didn't have much planned but somehow I ended up running into a Vintage Pop-Up event this past Saturday going on around Long Beach. One of my favorite boutiques called Prism Boutique was having a major vintage pop-up sale I definitely spotted so many amazing things!

Afterwards we ended up heading downtown to fuel up on caffeine at Recreational Coffee before going thrifting at Retro Row. 
If you've never been to Retro Row I highly suggest going! If you're all about thrifting and just love vintage one-of-a-kind finds then you will love this street filled with quirky vintage shops. 
I have been coming to retro row since I can remember and I always find some gems!
I bought two pieces which I'll show later on the blog :)


Vintage Levi's !!


Prism Boutique, LOVE LOVE their interior decor and overall aesthetic! 
They carry some of the best brands too! :)


This linen dress was one of my favorite finds!

Good vibes and good jams


Beautiful handmade ceramics

That Golden Light


♫ The Belle Game- Spirit ♫ 


Wearing:

Vintage dress
Poshmark bag
Zara sandals
Steve Madden sunnies

Although it's still super warm out it makes for the best golden hour pictures!
I love golden hour, there is a certain warm golden light around that time of the day that I just love. 
I swear you can almost feel the warmth through these pictures from the leftover heat of the day, it was maybe around 6pm and it still felt like 90 degrees outside!

I opted for one my fave LBD that I've had for years, it has a cute open back detail and criss-cross diamond stitching along the hems. It's so versatile, timeless and breathable, love it!
I paired it with these simple tan Zara sandals and my rattan bag.  I don't usually like to overdo an outfit especially when it's too hot outside. I kept the makeup natural, wore minimal dainty jewelry, and let my hair do its thing (with help from ouai wave spray). 

What do you guys think of the look?

I hope you guys enjoyed your weekend!

Road Trippin' Through Santa Cruz


♫ Digitalism- Shangri-La ♫ 


Hey guys!
Here are the last set of pictures from my road trip last weekend. After spending time in San Francisco and Muir Woods we drove down to Santa Cruz, it was my first time but it had been on my bucket list for a while and I finally got to tick it off!

The Santa Cruz boardwalk felt like a summer fair, think of the LA or OC fair but by the beach! I absolutely loved the vibe and the overall atmosphere, it was a bit crowded but personally I liked it  better than the Santa Monica Pier. It was crowded but not too packed with tourists like SM usually is year round. 

We had such a great time out there! My favorite were the colorful gondola rides above the boardwalk, they definitely made it look more quirky and fun! Can't wait to go back soon someday and explore more of Santa Cruz.

Have you guys ever been?










One of the things I love about road trips: Fruit barns, fruit stands, and farmer's market along the side of the road. We bought some organic strawberries, avocados, peaches, and kettle corn. 


Dreamy view on the way back home!

I hope you guys enjoyed my pictures :)
