Abbot Kinney.

With my friend Lacie in town I finally had the opportunity to explore the super cool shopping destination in Venice, Abbot Kinney. A compilation of both men's and women's clothing and shoe shops, gift boutiques, home good stores and vegetarian eateries for the hipster in all of us. We took a couple hours popping in and out of shops such as Junk Food and Nightcap, trying on beautiful clothes to end our adventures taking in the rad ambiance of the TOMS shoes Roasting Co. I definitely need to find time to keep exploring but so far that's my favorite spot; half coffee shop, half lounge, part eye-wear and shoe pop-up shop. AND it's dog friendly, my kind of place.

OC Adventuring.

Sometimes it's fun to get to explore your own backyard. My best friend has been visiting from Ohio the past four days (hence my blogging absence) and it's been very refreshing to explore Orange County without the stress and commitments of everyday life. Make sure you always find the time to take a step back and enjoy your surroundings.

Softest Stripes.

I'm not sure I'll ever wear any other pants again, these are the comfiest bottoms I've ever had on my body. And what's better they can be dressed from day to night, yoga to the beach, cocktails to dinner: so versatile, so perfect, endless possibilities.

Wear it Now // Wear it Later: Wildfox Polo Club Raglan

This time of year is always perplexing for shopping, for most our summer wardrobes are full-filled so buying more beachy pieces just seems irresponsible. But, it's still scorching hot out so we aren't quite ready for all the fall layers hitting shelves. The key is finding pieces you can wear both now, AND later, making them good investments for multiple seasons.  

I've made up some looks to help inspire you featuring some of my favorite pieces from local boutique Blue Eyed Girl: all of these items are available in their stores: this week featuring the Wildfox Couture Polo Club Cozy Raglan
