Strapless summer

This cute tank was a hand-me down and I decided to pair it with some wide jeans and sneakers. Perfect for warm summer days and cold A/C office hours.

casual gray tshirt dressed for work

A simple gray tshirt is so effortless but can still look really dressy if you pair it with some nicer items. I found this super soft gray shirt at target the other day. I went with a larger size than normal for a looser fit.

Boho Friday Hair

Sometimes I have an amazing hair day. I saw this tutorial on pinterest and this morning I gave it a try. I did not tuck my hair as neatly as the instructions suggest but I think it turned out great. I got a lot of compliments on it and the guys at work said I look like a female version of tupac.

Navy Maxi

I got a new maxi dress at the Gap this week. Since it's been in the 90's (30's C) here this week I love how flowy and comfortable it is. My photographer, aka husband, match his eyes to the trees.

neon and new shoes

A little neon adds a lot of sunshine to any outfit. I found my highlighter yellow scarf at the Gap. Sometimes I get lucky while shopping. The scarf was hanging with the regular priced scarfs but it was only priced $1.97! I picked it for the color and was blown away by the price. So it got to come home with me. I also picked up these booties at Nordstrom. I've been eyeing them for a while and since they never dropped in price I decided to buy them anyways.

Shine Bright

It was poring down rain this morning so I decided to be my own sunshine. I found this Vans sweater at Goodwill, a local secondhand store. The sweater is painted with a rose gold color that shines beautifully in the light.

Superman Shoes

There is very minimal mixing and matching with dresses which makes them perfect when I do not know what to wear. I paired my dress with my new shoes from Steve Madden. I love the metal swoops on the top. They look like the letter S, as in superman, splendid, superb, shoes!

Happy Easter

I celebrated Easter in a bunny bun with some friends in my beloved summer dress. I paired my sweet dress with a cropped leather jacket to toughen up the little girl look. The warm California sun is now warm enough to skip the jacket unless I'm inside in the A/C. Needless to say I go through a lot of sunscreen living here. My sensitive Viking skin doesn't really handle the sun that well.
