crochet mini

Finally, a beach day! My first one of the year actually. Kind of ironic because I literally live 15 minutes away from the beach but I guess when you're that close, you kind of almost forget that it's there. That is until you are bored one Saturday afternoon and it is a nice sunny day out. So my roommate and I threw on our favorite summer dresses and headed over to Santa Monica for some fun in the sun.

Currently my favorite pins: Wishcandy coconut oil pin, Zero Gravity Palm tree pin, Emo Night hot dog pin

I've always wanted a crochet dress but never found the perfect one. They were always too sheer, or too lumpy, or too big, or too small.. that is until I laid my eyes on this one from Zara. Knit to perfection and fits like a glove. I fell in love with it the moment I spotted it from across the store. The beach is the perfect setting for a little crochet mini dress. So summery, so light, and so airy. It's been a long time since I fell this hard for a clothing item.

disco days

This is what I call a modern disco look. No lamé here, just a cute polkadot midi and some metallic sandals is what I wore for an ode to disco. And of course a leather jacket, ALWAYS a leather jacket.

I spotted these beauties on Asos and knew I had to have it. They look similar to the Gucci cross strap sandals but for a fraction of the cost. Unfortunately they sold out, but fear not. Zara also makes a similar version here.

Hope you all had a fantastic weekend! Mine was busy but very productive. I had a lovely day date with my sister and we got our mother's day shopping done. I can't wait to have some family time next weekend. I'm avoiding going out to an overly crowded restaurant this year and will be planning an in-home brunch for my mom. Lots of planning to do, lot of hours on pintrest awaits.

all tied up

Draped and laced up, two major elements I love at the moment. Thank you Light in the box for sending me this super soft draped top. It's such an easy piece to throw on and fits perfectly in my predominately black wardrobe. The criss cross detail at the front is an interesting twist (pun intended) and adds a surprise element.

I used to wear these Ann Demeulemeester heels often a few years back. I moved to a few different apartments and had them packed up and thought I lost them for a while, which I was pretty sad about. Then the other day when I visited my parents, I saw them sitting in my mom's shoe shelf and I was elated! I have no idea how she got a hold of them, but no questions were asked. I was just so happy to be runited with my babies. Expect to see a lot more of these bad boys again in the future.
