DARK FLORALS

ZARA SHIRT AND JACKET, CULT OF INDIVIDUALITY SHORTS, TIBI SANDALS [SIMILAR HERE AND HERE], GIVENCHY TOTE [SIMILAR HERE AND HERE], PHOTOS BY MELANEE SHALE

The head-to-toe black look will never get old for me, but sometimes I do feel a little morbid donning such hues in the middle of summer. In my defense though, we've been experiencing a fair share of July gloom so a Matrix-like black trench coat is completely justifiable. A silk shirt with white floral print and strappy black sandals for seasonal balance.

CAMOUFLAGED


A airy, breezy tank dress was the perfect dress to change into after a hike that left me hot and sweaty. Designed as part of a collab between UO and Della, a women-owned, women-run, LA-based business that works directly with communities in West Africa. I love that everything is handcrafted, which makes it all the more special. Definitely check out the collection, you won't feel so guilty for shopping when you know it helps a greater cause. Happy Friday! xo

STAR SPANGLED


While brunching with my girl Sarah, (whom I don't see often enough), we planned a spontaneous road trip up the California coast right then and there with travel accommodations and all. I think our separate anxiety got the best of us. Destination? Big Sur. On the itinerary? Nothing in particular, yet we somehow managed to wear ourselves out every single day. Being that it was July 4th, stripes, stars and donning red/white/blue was the only way to dress. More details on the trip to come! xo
