    The Huntington Library and Gardens

      DRESS: Blu Pepper  |  BOOTS: Circus by Sam Edelman  |  SUNGLASSES: Glik’s           Today I went to the Huntington Library and Gardens for a late birthday celebration.  I was planning to go on my birthday weekend but it was closed for some reason.  We went to Big Bear instead.  I still wanted to go to the botanical gardens because I went a year ago and loved it.  I have been wanting to return ever since.  I’m sure you know by now I am a huge garden lover and this one is massive.  If you like gardens too, you should check it out.      …

    5 Reasons to Love Midi Dresses

    DRESS: Sim & Sam  |  BAG: Topshop  |  SANDALS: Shade & Shore  |  SUNGLASSES: Glik’s  |  NECKLACE: Sugarfix by Baublebar           1.  Midi dresses are super easy to wear. Like all dresses, they are one item of clothing that you don’t necessarily have to worry about styling and matching with other things.  You just slip it on and go.  Since they are longer they are so easy to wear because you don’t have to be as careful about it blowing up.             2.  You can always dress them up and style them in different ways.  They are really fun to layer.  I…

    Day Trip to Big Bear Lake

    SWEATER: T.J.Maxx  |  JEANS: H&M  |  SHOES: Puma  |  BAG: Coach           My birthday was this past weekend and I went to Big Bear for the day on Saturday.   I wanted to celebrate and see some fall leaves, since LA obviously doesn’t have many.  I think we have gone to Big Bear in the fall every year since living here.  I really miss changing leaves.  I can’t say I’m a fan of southern California autumns.  I chose to go to Big Bear because I didn’t want to go too late and miss the peak leaf time (which we kind of missed anyway).  I was planning…

    Loungewear Sweater Set

    SWEATER SET: Anthropologie  |  BAG: Coach  |  SUNGLASSES: Glik’s           I got this sweater set a few months ago and love it so much.  It’s the first loungewear set that I have ever owned.  It’s from Anthropologie.  They had a pink and yellow one that I wanted so badly but it sold out before I could get my hands on it.  What I love about this set is the mixed prints.  It’s just so unique.  I also love that it’s made of sweater fabric because it makes if feel more wearable and less pajama-esque.  I can wear each piece individually, paired with something else and it…

    Tiered Midi Dress

    DRESS: T.J. Maxx  |  BAG: Coach  |  SUNGLASSES: Glik’s  |  SHOES: Lulu’s           I have always had a love/hate relationship with midi dresses.  I like how they look on other people and think they are comfortable but have never really felt confident wearing them.  I think it’s because i’m on shorter side (5’2″) and they cut me in a strange spot.  I also have larger calves and I feel like they accentuate that.  I’ve recently realized that I like midi dresses that are on the longer side.  They hit somewhere between the upper calf and ankle.  This one isn’t necessarily the length that is my favorite.…

    2 Days in San Francisco

          Over Labor Day weekend my husband, dog, and I took a road trip from L.A. to San Francisco.  We hadn’t been back since moving to California.  If you don’t know, it’s about a 6-7 hour drive. I’ve been several times but this was only my husband’s second time, so we wanted to make the most of it.  And we did.  We accomplished so much in the span of a 3 day weekend.  If you want to see previous posts, I will link them HERE and HERE.  I’m going to talk about all of the things we were able to do, in case you are planning a trip.…

    iPhone SE Test Photos

    DRESS: Urban Outfitters  |   SANDALS: Target  |   BAG: Coach           Happy Sunday! This weekend I stopped by the Korean Bell of Friendship in LA and wanted to test out the camera on my new phone.  I got the newer iPhone SE on Saturday.  I previously had the first SE but it was starting to act up and already had the screen replaced.  I really needed an upgrade because I had that phone for over 5 years.  There are many reasons why I chose to go with the SE but I’m not going to go into all of them.  I am pretty happy with how…

    What to Wear This Summer for Hot Weather

    TOP: Target  |   SHORTS: Target  |  HEADBAND: Nordstrom Rack  |  EARRINGS: Primark  |  BAG: H&M            Since the weather here in California has gotten much hotter, I have been trying to find new outfit combos that look cool and allow me to stay cool.  I found this top a few months ago at Target.  What really attracted me was the color.  This seafoam color is my absolute, all-time favorite color.  I also love that it is shirred and has the tie straps.  I’ve been really loving shirring lately, like I said in another post.  I feel like I should have gotten one size larger perhaps,…

    Camping in Sequoia National Forest

              This past weekend I went camping in Sequoia National Forest.  We (my husband and I) stayed at Quaking Aspen Campground.  We hadn’t been to that campground before but I highly recommend it. It was really nice for a national property campground.  Normally they are pretty minimal.  This one doesn’t have showers but it was still really nice.  We visited Sequoia National Park a few years ago and I had been wanting to go camping somewhere.  Since the National Forest allows dogs on trails we decided to go there.  Normally National Parks don’t allow dogs on trails but National Forests usually do.  I love the feel…

    Denim Skort Romper

    ROMPER: Sincerely Jules (T.J. Maxx)  |  BAG: T.J. Maxx  |  HEADBAND: Nordstrom Rack  |   NECKLACE: Local Eclectic  |  SANDALS: Sand & Sun           If you need an easy summer outfit rompers are always the way to go.  Obviously, they have been around for the longest time but I have kind of forgotten about them.  They aren’t as popular anymore but I still love them.  They are just so convenient and easy.  Rompers are as cute as dresses but easier to move around and actually do things in.  This one is a skort romper so it’s even better!  I found it at T.J. Maxx last weekend.…
