Thursday marked the summer solstice! Time for slip dresses, slide sandals, and gold jewelry. My summer wishlist consists of adding a few things to my wardrobe like this peach and white striped bikini, these uniquely shaped hoop earrings, and the these affordable rattan slides.
I don't know about you, but when the warm weather strikes, I aways feel a little uneasy about what to wear. I am all about jeans and layering, but that's not conducive to the heat. I want to be comfortable but pulled together, so I thought I would highlight a few of my summer staples at the moment.
Sunkissed skin. Warm evenings. Cold glass of Sancerre. Cool linen. Sweet buttery corn. Syrupy peaches. All things that signal that summer is here.
A little roundup of some carefully selected things I have been loving.
What does one wear for a day of wine tasting? I have dubbed this outfit my summer uniform, as it has been heavily on rotation. This versatile white linen shirt can be tied a few different ways, but would look great over a bathing suit as well. I have to mention these jeans by the brand AGOLDE that are aptly named the '90's jeans,' with a high waist and a loose, straight leg.
A round-up of picks for one of my favorite places in the world! Napa encompasses all that I love : food, wine, nature's beauty. Here the focus is not on the latest gluten or dairy free diet, but on ingredients (many which are grown mere feet away from where they are being served.)
Napa Valley here I come! As I am going for 3 days, a carry-on is do-able, and allows you to walk straight off the plane into the car, 60 minute drive, and you are that much closer to a glass of wine in hand. Here are a few of my packing tips and a simple weekend packing list.
Makeup trends come and go, but beautiful skin is timeless. I thought I would share my favorite products to get that dewy, glossy skin that looks healthy and natural. I do believe it all starts with taking care of the skin and I thought I would do a full post on my skin story over the years because at points it was a struggle.
Rounding up a few items in anticipation of warm days ahead. I love the color palette of ivories, faded denim, and earth tones like this burnt sienna bikini. Janessa Leone's latest hat collection may be her best one yet and I still have a thing for these sandals from last season.
In the spirit of warm weather days ahead, a little cocktail inspiration for you! I am not a big hard alcohol person, but lately I have been really enjoying a gin cocktail. This recipe is especially delicious because of the citrus and the honey and very easy to make.
A no-think, closet classic, and personal favorite as soon as summer strikes : the white shirt. It always looks good in a variety of situations like say a beach picnic with shorts or at a garden party with crisp white jeans. It one of my must-have pieces and I always like to add a version with the season.
