eeee. i am so excited to be leaving for paris today! i’m getting ready to eat as much unpasterized butter as i can hold in my stomach and walk and drink and take lots of photos and clearly i’m thrilled. if you guys have any can’t miss spots in paris, let me know!
ok so while i usually wear black, it’s warm outside, so i’m ok wearing lighter colors. well, neutrals. the word color is a stretch, but this will do! here are some neutral faves to complete your summer wardrobe.
gauze dress / backpack / dress / linen tank / cuff / shorts / kimono / sandals
so like, spring is here. yeah yeah i suppose it’s been here, but it seems like the time we should stock up on summer stuff, right? ok. good. i’m glad we’re all in agreement on this. and most importantly… how cute is the swimsuit? it might look horrible on my larger chest but i am buying it anyway because yolo.
with the summer coming — i’m thinking all my clothes are too confining and tight and black. so if i’m buying clothes for the new season, i’m going to focus on loose and lightweight materials. you can kind of see that’s where my head is at with these picks.
as promised, i’m going to start doing semi regular roundups of my favorite items at forever 21!
i want to start this column by saying i am not associated with the store, i just have an addiction. i also want to say that i am aware that there are many options for shopping small, sustainably + ethically. but i enjoy F21 and that’s about it. this blog is about fun + pretty things. and not much more than that. real talk!
it’s wedding season! which means i start looking around obsessively at dresses, because i have a problem. once i wear a fancy dress, i don’t want to wear it ever again. this makes me sound so shallow or normal, but the time in between the time i wear a fancy dress to the next — i usually don’t really like it anymore. so i tend to buy inexpensive ones if i can.
here are some of my favorites, some casual + some more formal.
also, i have a question for you guys. you may or may not know i have a big thing for forever 21. i tried to cut it cold turkey, but i can’t seem to. i was thinking it could be fun to round up the good finds every so often – would you be into that? let me know.
i think it might be finally cooling down in LA, and not just for a few days but maybe for the whole winter! although i really love the weather here, last winter was pretty warm the entire season – and i really miss wearing sweaters and jackets. so now it’s time to daydream about what i’ll wear, when i can believe it’s actually cold.
while the wedding is TOMORROW — a lot of my excitement is building up for the honeymoon. in a few days, we’ll be sitting on the beach drinking margaritas and i cannot wait! the biggest problem with planning our trip is that i should have shopped for beach wear before the fall season started. i’ve been looking for a swimsuit in stores and it feels impossible.
we’re staying at two hotels and i’ll be instagramming away i’m sure. so follow me there and i’ll be back with a travel post when i’m home!
