Thought this was sweet.

Favorite Video- GoPro Puppies

I absolutely loved this. And then I found this video, which just completed the cuteness. And this (dramatic) video. Seriously you guys, just search YouTube for “puppies chasing GoPro”. You won’t be disappointed.

This post made me want to take a trip exclusively to find the best ice cream places. My stomach would be happy, but my clothes? Not so much.

Fashion Friday- Lace, Crochet and More

Happy Friday!

It’s about a billion degrees around here (translation: like 95). For some odd reason, my brain blocked out the fact that September (or even October) in California does not equal cool fall weather, and I was actually surprised that it’s been so darn hot. So, if you’re in the same boat as us, and standing outside means baking, ignore any Fashion Friday choices that seem like fall clothing. Just look back at this post at a future date and enjoy them then 🙂

A unique take on the kimono.

Dearest Wish Lace Top

This would look adorable with shorts now, and with jeans and a blazer later.

Asha Boots

It’s hard to tell from the picture, but these are actually burgundy.

Chevron Lace Top

There’s something about this top that I absolutely love. It’s a bit pricey for a t-shirt, but it’s so cute!

 Eastcastle Street Embroidered Blouse

So pretty and delicate.

 

Knit Maxi Dress

So this is neither lace or crochet, but I liked it, so I included it anyways. Just like the burgundy boots.

 Crochet Tee

I like the unexpected lace on the sides of a basic shirt.

 Lace/Mesh Headband

I’ve been really into headbands recently and this one is so pretty.

Fashion Friday- How to Wear It

I did something a bit different for today’s Fashion Friday- I chose a handful of pieces, and linked to different outfits that are great inspirations for using similar items. All of the clothing pieces that I chose are very versatile and can be used in a ton of different ways.

Below each picture, there are three links leading to different outfit inspirations, so make sure that you click on all of the links (in pink or blue). Hope you have a great weekend!

Ready to Recline Top

Ways to wear it: Casual, Eclectic, Feminine

A striped t-shirt is a great staple that can be used in a ton of different outfits. I love to wear mine with jeans, skirts and shorts.

Black Jeggings

Ways to wear it: With Chambray, Military, Bright

For the longest time, I didn’t own a pair of black jeans because I always thought that I’d have trouble pairing them with the right shirts. Don’t ask me why. I finally got a pair of black jeans a while back, and I absolutely love them. And they do go with everything by the way 😉

Oversized Knit Cardigan

Ways to wear it: Casual, FancyCreative Layering

My mom has a “grandpa sweater” that she found in the men’s section of Target. I love to borrow it because it’s a perfect, thickly knit cardigan that is so cozy. I really love these sweaters from Forever 21- especially this olive green one.

Train Station Homecoming Flat

Ways to wear it: All Kinds of Inspiration, Relaxed, Cute

Oxfords are just the best. Often, they end up looking a bit fancier than sneakers, and some (like this Modcloth pair) have fun details and embellishments.

Lifelong Romantic Top

Ways to wear it: Simple, Casual, Neutral

You might not expect a fancy, lace top like this to be a good closet staple, but as I explored, I found a ton of cute ways to style similar tops.

Records Before Breakfast Skirt

Ways to wear it: Fancy, Layers, Cozy

I love skirts like this- especially in solid colors that are easily worn with printed shirts.

Classic Chambray Shirt

Ways to wear it: Colorful, Feminine, Layered

I couldn’t leave a chambray shirt off this post. Denim shirts are the perfect simple button-down or light-weight jacket over dresses.

Fanatics MLB Baseball Hat Outfit Challenge

Hey all!

Fanatics is an awesome company that sells all kinds of clothing for fans of basically all sports- football, basketball, Nascar, hockey, soccer, the Olympics, college sports, and, of course, baseball! The best part about Fanatics is that they are the perfect place to start if you’re wanting a great game-day outfit. When building cute game-day style, it can be hard to find a large selection of clothes from your favorite team, so it was a pleasant surprise to see the huge variety of designs that Fanatics carries- there’s truly something for everyone!

Because of their great selection of products, I decided to design a great game-day outfit based around a MLB baseball hat that I picked from their website. I was super excited to design an outfit based around a baseball cap! Even though we don’t watch a whole lot of baseball around here, I absolutely love heading down to PetCo Park in San Diego to watch a Padre’s game once in a while. The atmosphere at PetCo Park is so cool- it’s right in the middle of downtown San Diego, and there are so many fun things to do around there. Another great thing about PetCo is the food- they have such amazing food choices, which just adds to the general fun of a baseball game 🙂

Fanatics Baseball Hat Outfit Challenge

San Diego Padre’s New Era Hat//Basta Lace-up Boots//Sweeter Than Honey Sweater//Super-skinny Jean//Make a Movement Earrings//Mila Festival Bag

I could totally see myself wearing this outfit to a baseball game- it’s so comfy and cute. Fanatics has a huge variety of baseball hats for whichever team is your favorite- I chose a super cool, two-tone flat-bill Padre’s hat, and built a perfect outfit around that.

I had such a fun time designing my game-day outfit and hope that you enjoyed the finished product! Make sure to check out Fanatics– especially their amazing selection of baseball hats!

Hope you all have a great Monday!

Fashion Friday- Made for Adventure

Happy Friday! Despite how much I love dresses and skirts, I also really love easy clothes- jeans, flannels, sweat-shirts, that kind of thing. So that’s what I chose for this week’s Fashion Friday- comfy clothing that I love. Enjoy!

Foggy Shore Long-Sleeve
237938569
In case you hadn’t already figured this out, I have a thing for flannels. They are seriously the best. A great place to get a cheap flannel is in the men’s section of thrift stores- a men’s small is a good fit and so comfortable. This flannel from Tilly’s is adorable though- I saw it in person, and it’s perfect.
Klettersack

This little company from Colorado makes some amazing backpacks and other outdoor gear- their stuff is a bit pricey, but so very cool.
National Parks Pass Top

Classic Denim Joggers

I bought these comfy jeans from Forever21 a couple of weeks ago. They feel a bit like Aladdin’s pants 😉 so cute and unusual.
Loly in the Sky- Caroline

There’s something about these quirky oxfords that I absolutely love- I smile every time I see them.

Anorak Jacket

This jacket is nearly identical to my favorite jacket that I bought from Tilly’s last fall. It’s a great basic piece and is a perfect weight for our mild California winters.
