Midsummer Mariana

This flowy white dress from Voloshin makes me feel like a Grecian princess or character in a Shakespearean play. It’s one of the few items I own that’s helped me endure the heat wave we’ve been having. I’ve worn this dress out a few times and have gotten compliments every single time. It’s so simple and classy.

I’ve worn this necklace before and it’s one of my favorite gifts I’ve ever been given. My aunt gave it to me for my high school graduation. It’s engraved with an Eleanor Roosevelt quote: “The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.” One of the students who spoke at the graduation used that exact quote in her speech and I remember thinking to myself, “Wow, what a beautiful quote.” Little did I know that my aunt gave me a necklace engraved with that very quote!

I’d been eyeing these Leah Alexandra Halo Circle Ear Jackets ever since I saw them featured on Caitlin’s December Favorites video and treated myself to them after they went on sale a few weeks ago. They’re really hard to put in, but I love the way they look so much I don’t care.

9 Books On My Summer Reading List

9 Books On My Summer Reading List

As a child, my favorite activity was reading. I could easily whizz through 3+ books in a week depending on how long and captivating they were. My suitcase would be filled with books to read on vacation and I’d often find myself at the bookstore wherever we were traveling buying more books after I’d read through everything I’d brought with me.

As an adult, I get far less time to read than I’d like. (I actually listen to podcasts and audiobooks more than ever these days to passively multitask.) In the summer season, life slows down a little and I always try to carve out a bit more time to read. To me, the place where you read matters just as much as the book you’re reading.

My ideal reading location is on the beach with a cold drink by my side. I collaborated with Health-Ade Kombucha to share with you a few books that are on my 2018 summer reading list. Click here to read the blog post.

9 Books On My Summer Reading List

I wrote this list before I found out the author who wrote The Devil Wears Prada wrote another book about Emily’s—Miranda Priestly’s assistant—life after Runway Magazine. It’s called When Life Gives You Lululemons and I’m definitely adding it to my list!

Have you read any books this summer? If so, what have you read? If not, what books are on your reading list? Where is your favorite reading location?

Cold May

I never thought I’d be wearing a turtleneck in May, but this is the coldest May I’ve ever experienced since moving to California 10 years ago. It’s kind of ironic because I bought a bunch of wintry items during end-of-season sales and I get to wear them all now instead of waiting until next year. Muahahaha. I keep wishing for warm weather, but know that I’ll probably be over it in 2.5 days. At least it’s staying light out super late. These photos were taken close to 8 pm (whaaat?!).

I’ve been very into necklaces with tiny pendants and I love this pearl necklace from AUrate even more in person than online. It’s such a good everyday necklace that goes with a wide variety of outfits.

I’m super lazy and don’t like to have to buckle in straps or tie shoelaces, so I know these Mohinders slides are going to be a go-to this summer.
