Sunday in the Park

Dress Maje, Wedges Prada, Purse Vintage Chanel, Necklace c/o Stella & Dot, Sunnies from a random Boutique in SF ($25!)

Today was the ideal Sunday. Thomas and I started off our morning walking down to the ferry building for breakfast and to get some groceries. The weather was amazing all weekend, especially today. Since it was 75+ degrees, we decided to pack up a lunch, blanket and  some books on Italy and head to the park.  I was so nice to lay out in the sun with my best friend. We spent time drawing pictures of each other and then laughing at how horrible they were. We had bubblegum  blowing contests. We planned some “must see” destinations for our trip to Italy.  And then we got gelato! What did you do?!

A Staple Piece

Blazer J. Crew, Jumper c/o BCBGeneration, Booties ASOS (from last summer, similar style here), Necklaces c/o Stella & Dot (here and here), Bag Tory Burch

One of the most frequent questions I get asked is, “What are the staple items in your wardrobe?” While this can vary throughout each season, one thing that remains constant is a good blazer. The great thing about a blazer is that you can throw it over practically anything and instantly make it look more polished. Take, for example, this summer romper.  The back is completely open (which I love!), it’s short and has a floral pattern. When I put my navy blazer over it, it turns from a bohemian laid-back look to one more  suited for work/meetings/everyday/etc.  Happy Friday Everyone!

I first discovered Mara Hoffman through one of her swim suits that I saw pinned on Pinterest. The intricate pattern and detail instantly grabbed my attention and then immediately went on my wish list.  I love when I discover a new designer or line that instantly takes my mind on a  journey of where I would wear that item. I feel as if I would explore caves, swim in a tropical ocean and immerse myself in a culture I know nothing about while wearing these beautiful things. I tend to do this a lot with things I fall in love with. Please tell me I am not the only one that does this?!
