Nothing ushers in summer more than a sea of flirty, floral ruffle dresses. The more interesting the floral, the better the dress, and I am in love with this oversized, yellow stargazer print dress. Inspired by Dolce & Gahanna, this stunner has all the right homages to the Italian brand, like the sweetheart, bustier style top and full, voluminous skirt trimmed with ruffles. The upper half of the silhouette says ’50s… but the bottom half is all things current, AKA midi length and covered in cascading ruffles.

Sure, this floral beauty would stand just fine on it’s own. But I like a pop of the unexpected. So, layer a cheeky tee underneath, exposing quirky touches like these little ladybugs and bees that are peeking out from the shoulders. There’s something fun about laid back elegance. I adore taking uber girlie pieces and pairing them with sneakers and basics. Selecting monogrammed kicks is the only option for this dressed up meets down outfit. Plus, a decadent gold necklace and an overly upscale bag add whimsy touches. xx



60s and Stripes
















All about them stripes! Especially when done in a unique, cool way. This top by Elliatt took everything I knew about stripes and flipped it upside down. I love how the spacing between the lines varies, almost playing tricks on the eye.

And, can we talk about the asymmetry? From one side, it looks like a long tunic dress, and from the other, a standard high neck top. I’ve never seen anything like it before and I got giddy with joy the second I laid eyes on it. I played up the 60s with everything else — what do you think? X

The Sweetest Floral Midi


























“And at the end of the day, your feet should be dirty, your hair messy, and your eyes sparkling.” My mantra, always.

Whether it’s squeezing in a last minute hike or vintage shopping in Silverlake, I’ve been trying to squeeze out every last drop of summer. And, nothing feels more seasonally appropriate than a delicate floral midi dress.

Oasis Fashion has some beautiful pieces for a great price, and I was lucky enough to snag this soft nude floral dress. There’s something about a pleated skirt that makes a girl want to twirl–and what better location to do that than in front of this picturesque green gate in the Hollywood Hills. You can get the same one right here! I went simple with the styling and chose nude strappy sandals that my dad bought for me and a light blue Clove and Revel bag. I adore the way the blue looks against the floral pattern, almost like the sky.

Flower Girl
























There’s something about a pretty maxi dress that makes me feel like the most luxurious gal in the world. Perhaps it’s the flowy fabric and the ability to lounge gracefully on a chaise lounge… the ultimate “Elie Saab for Breakfast” moment. My friend Kasia came up with that phrase, and we use it to describe this scenario of someone who wears a gorgeous couture dress to eat breakfast in, because they can. The idea of wearing something so incredibly luxe and ridiculous and gorgeous, while eating yogurt and berries and coffee, because why not. 

While this dress isn’t couture–it’s by Line and Dot–it evokes a similar vibe. That feeling of being utterly glamorous. The color is sweet, and the floral appliqué neckline really takes it to the next level. You might recognize this dress because I wore it in Napa, but I styled it totally different this time around. I went with a raw edge straw hat. black lace-up shoes and a choker to add a gritty pretty feel to the look.

What do you think? I couldn’t find this same dress on Shopstyle, but but a few other gorgeous options below. XX

Bomber Jacket Swag

Wearing a bomber jacket instantly makes me feel like a rockstar. There is something undeniably cool and collegiate about sporting a bomber, even if it wasn’t received as a sports or study accolade. I got this one a few years back at Forever 21 because it has an “M” for McNamara on it. That’s another thing I adore – a monogram! Anything with my initial(s) on it and I’m sold.

I’ve been itching for new styling tricks, so today I decided to try clasping only the top snap, and leaving the rest of the buttons on the jacket undone. I don’t know why, but I like how it looks snug around the neck and flares out to form a triangle.

The base of this outfit is casual, and one that I’ve been living in as of late: black silk All Saints shorts and a holey tee. This is my favorite tee I own. It’s from the H&M x Isabel Marant collection and I am so mad I only have one. I would have bought them all had I know how amazing they are. 

Without the scarf, this look is rather androgynous. But the scarf adds just the right dose of femininity. I’ve put together a great gallery below with some of my favorite pieces, including the gorgeous Saint Laurent bomber of my dreams. xx
