What to Wear: 4th of July

4th of July III

1. Poolside/Beach

4th of July

2.   Special Event/Restaurant

4th of July II

3. BBQ

Hey Guys!

4th of July is just around the corner and I created a few outfits inspired by independence day! I love this holiday, it's a time to get together with friends and family, have a BBQ,  and just have a good time while enjoying the fireworks. I created three ideal looks that can actually be worn anywhere for this day. They're basic chic outfits with pops of blue and red, I kept the red minimal since I'm not a huge fan of red too much haha, pops of red are okay though! For 4th of July, I usually try to stick to casual looks and usually finish them off with patriotic colors, stripes, and accessories. This year I think I'm going with an outfit similar to #3. I'm planning to stay by the beach and have a BBQ with friends/ family, can't wait! Which is your favorite look?

Hope you guys enjoy your 4th of July!

 Here are some quickie snaps from this past Friday strolling around my old neighborhood in LBC. I love this boho/artsy neighborhood you will surely find random cute cafes and shops hidden in between houses and artsy walls in the most random-est places. It might be a little hipster but it's imperfect and super artsy which is why I love it!
 I checked out Summer and Music (SAM) festival yesterday and got to snap a few pics with one of my fave musicians/artist, Devendra Banhart! Stay tuned for that post! :)

Heatwave...welcome summer!

Cooling off with cucumber infused h2o

Hey loves!

Here's a quickie recap of this past weekend, it was pretty chill since I spent it mostly catching up with family at the park and lounging around at home with my cute pup.  We've been having a heatwave here in SoCal so staying cool with great tunes and iced infused h2o is the way to go!

Hope you all enjoyed your weekend, more pictures coming your way!
