    Visiting Descanso Gardens

    DRESS: Betsy Johnson  |  SANDALS: Walmart  |  SUNGLASSES: Glik’s  |  BACKPACK: Sole Society           If you live in or are visiting Southern California you may want to check out one of the many botanical gardens that are here.  This weekend I visited Descanso Gardens for the first time.  It’s located in La Canada Flintridge, North of Los Angeles.  It’s $15 per person to enter and parking is free.  It’s a large garden that is divided up into separate spaces, depending on the type of plant.  It’s very similar to most botanical gardens that I have been to.  They also have a lot of art installations and…

    Kinda Khaki Pants

    PANTS: Target  |  SWEATER: Moon & Madison  |  SNEAKERS: Puma  |  SUNGLASSES: Glik’s  |  BAG: Coach           I honestly didn’t like these pants when I first saw them.  I am not a fan of khaki pants in general.  These are more of a fashion-forward style, though.  Also, they are a darker color.  They are more brown than khaki.  In the photos they look kind of orange, but they aren’t really.  I needed new pants that aren’t jeans because I lost a bit of weight and my pants are baggy.  It has been bothering me.  I went shopping this past weekend and I literally could not find…

    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…

    4th of July Weekend at Sherman Library and Gardens

    TOP: Primark:  |  SHORTS: Abound  |  SHOES: Loeffler Randall  |  EARRINGS: Primark           I am finally getting around to uploading a post about 4th of July 2021.  It’s been almost a week but late is better than never.  This year I had a bit of a laid back holiday.  We went for a hike at Rancho Palos Verdes and got poke on Saturday.  Sunday (4th of July) we went to the beach in the morning and came home and had an early dinner (turkey burgers).  Then in the evening we went for another hike at one of our favorite spots.  It’s up high so we were…

    First Day of Summer at Kenneth Hahn Park

      TOP: Thrifted (Acemi)  |  JEANS: H&M  |  SNEAKERS: Target  |  BACKPACK: Ted Baker London  |  SUNGLASSES: Zero UV (similar)           Today my husband, puppy, and I went back to the Kenneth Hahn State Recreation Area to hike some of the trails.  Last time we went there we did everything else.  Check out my first post if you want to know what else there is to do.  We thought it would be a fun thing to do on the first day of summer.  It’s not warm enough to go to the beach.  It was pretty crowded because of Father’s Day but it was still super fun.  I wore this top that I thrifted.  I picked…
