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?!

Studded Details

Tank Zara, Skirt Zara, Sandals Zara, Sunnies Ray Ban, Necklace c/o Stella & Dot

We took these photos last weekend when we were back in Stockton for my bridal shower & a grad party. It’s funny, the weather difference between San Francisco  and Stockton. It’s only about an hour and fifteen minute drive between the two, but while one city is 90+ the other is below 60.  I find that a maxi skirt is great for almost any occasion over the summer. They are light and breezy, but easy to layer and stay warm on cool nights. I like to add  sweatshirts over my maxi skirts or dresses to give them a dressed down, laid-back look  if necessary.
