Hey lovelies!

Happy Weekend!

This past week was one of the busiest everrrr, I swear haha... so many deadlines and projects!

But I'm so glad it's finally the weekend! I've been so inspired by fall colors lately that I created a few Polyvore sets, the looks are transitional from summer to fall, but as you guys noticed the color scheme is pretty much all inspired by fall. These looks are ideal for the SoCal weather since it doesn't cool down until around November but it's still great to incorporate some fall inspired looks and colors to get into the fall spirit.

Some of the transitional pieces include: slip dresses, tees, light-washed jeans, and cut-offs. These can all easily be worn in the beginning of fall with lighter sweaters/jackets and boots for those chilly mornings and evenings.

October is when it officially feels like fall though, there are pumpkin spice lattes in just about every coffee shop, everything is pretty much pumpkin-flavored, pumpkin patches, crunchy leaves, Halloween decorations, and how can I forget all those Hocus Pocus memes seen all over social media haha....I love it!
Even if it's 90 degrees in the middle of the day,  you can still a notice a slight change outside especially during those crisp mornings, there is also the color changing of the leaves and this certain distinct warm light during golden hour, which I love.

Which look do you see yourself in? :)

Indian Summer Feels

Hey guys!

I hope you all had a lovely weekend!
Here is one of the vintage dresses I bought during my thrifting day out last weekend! I was looking everywhere for a similar 90's mid length dress with buttons down the front, this one only has two buttons, but the overall style was too good to pass up. 
The tiny daisy print on this washed out green color makes it even more feminine and classic. 

I've been a fan of Christy Dawn dresses for a long time and this one reminded me of their dresses but for a wayyy more affordable price :) I love how versatile it is, I mean it's perfect for any time of the year!
I can't wait to style it with tights, ankle boots, and sweaters once the weather cools down. 

What do you guys think of the look?

My Kind of Evening

♫ ODESZA ft. Leon Bridges- Across the Room ♫ 

Hey guys!

Yesterday night I took some time off from a busy day and hung out around downtown Long Beach, we had dinner at one my favorite spots: Bo-Beau Kitchen + Roof Tap, I love the rooftop of this restaurant because you get some pretty rad views of the city! Bo-Beau is known for their delicious brussels sprouts so of course we indulged in those and french fries with garlic aioli sauce...oh so yummy! You can never go wrong with these brussels sprouts so I highly recommend this place if you're in the area.

After dinner we headed to East Village Arts District and stumbled upon a cool interior design store which was filled with a bunch of beautiful healing crystals and stones! I'm not really sure if crystals and stones actually work when it comes to healing and impacting our "well-being" but I do love them  especially, amethyst and rose quartz, they're just so beautiful to have around for decor. 

After killing time strolling around East Village we headed to a watercolor and wine night hosted by Make Collectives  and watercolor artist Jessica Weymouth. Jessica is truly a talented watercolor artist, if you check out her IG or website you will see why...I love how she focuses mostly on nature. She paints everything from orcas, quartz and stones, succulents, space-theme, and even cute quotes!
We had such a great time sippin' on some wine while getting creative,  Make Collectives is another of my favorite shops in East Village because of the variety they carry from women's and men's clothing, vinyl, candles, accessories, stationery, and so much more! They usually have different fun workshops like these every month!
 Feel free to check them out here.
These are definitely my kind of evenings, such a perfect way to end the day!

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
