Summer Wish List

Shirt - American Vintage Store (similar here), White Lace Skirt - Lipsy London ($22 version here!), Strappy Nude Heels, Beige Clutch - Bottica (similar style here), Cat Eye Sunglasses  (these by Guess are a steal!)

This outfit embodies all of my favorite aspects of summer.  Crisp white skirt, strappy nude heels that look amazing against a glowing tan, a flowy blouse in a vibrant green hue and minimal accessories to top the look. With a limited budget,  I am very particular about the kinds of clothes I buy. I ask myself, do they fit right? Can I wear it with other pieces in my closet? Will it still look good in a couple years?  If the answer is yes and the price fits--then I go for it!  There is no need to spend a fortune to look your best--you just gotta keep your eye out for the good stuff. Do you have any shopping tips? I'd love to know :)

California Casual

 Shirt - Target,  Skirt- Zara (similar here), Shoes - Lulu's (similar here)
I'm baaack! Like for real though-- and I thought I would get things started again with an easy going, fuss free outfit that is perfect for any occasion.  Picnic date? check. Family barbecue? Check.  Shopping day with the girls followed by a dinner at one of those LA hipster cafes that are way overpriced? Check and check.  Told ya, I got you covered.  Oh and even though you can't tell from the pictures, I'm SO excited about my Roots School Bag that I finally ordered! Isn't she a beauty? The softest, butteriest (is that a word?) leather I've ever felt and it works with a ton of different outfits. I talked about this bag and its level of perfectness here and now I finally have it! Anything you guys have been lusting over this summer?
