Happy Tuesday! I’m so happy to say that life lately is pretty great! Last Wednesday was my last official day of work before summer break (teacher perks!) so I’ve been on cloud nine ever since! I kicked off my summer break with a weekend trip to Lake Tahoe for a girlfriend’s bachelorette, which was a complete and total blast! I can’t wait to stand by her side at her wedding in less than 3 weeks! Below is a glimpse of more of my life lately but, if I do say so myself, you should definitely follow along with me on my Instagram to really keep up this summer because I have a handful of great trips coming up and because I love Instagram Stories! Hope everyone’s week is off to a great start! xx
Enjoying a sunset glow with my best friend from college down in San Diego! I’m wearing this navy sweater that has the cutest side ties (more sizes here, also love this similar style), these boyfriend jeans (on sale! Last seen here and here), and Soludos. My girlfriend, Nora, is wearing her husband’s sweater!
We took lots of walks to soak in all the sunshine and see the adorable homes of San Diego. We also played lots and lots of tennis with our guys!
I headed back to San Diego (this time to Del Mar) for Memorial Day weekend. I wore a Tuckernuck dress from last year and my trusty Soludos again because they just never get old!
A snap of my sister, Sarah, and I basking in some Memorial Day weekend rays. P.S. you know my sister from here! I’m wearing an old J.Crew swimsuit from last year in the blue and green version of the liberty print… it is out this year in the red and pink version (top, bottom, one piece).
More Memorial Day weekend beach time in my Illesteva sunnies (similar, similar) and J.Crew gingham swimsuit top.
My family had a big lobster and rosé sunset feast one night with some friends so Sarah and I snapped a few quick photos! I’m wearing this polka dot top (also comes in solid colors) and Sarah is wearing this blue and white top.
Spotted: my Illesteva sunnies again (similar, similar)
Two little snaps of the Memorial Day BBQ my parents had for a bunch of our friends and family friends!
I attended a Mark D. Sikes luncheon for the Los Angeles Children’s Hospital! It was such a fun event as the crown looked like a sea of his MDS Stripes line. There was also a fashion show, book signing, raffle (I didn’t win!), and it was all for a great cause! Snag his Beautiful book here – it’s one of my coffee table musts!
I wore this navy and white stripe MDS Stripes dress (more sizes here, also available as a top) to the luncheon with a MDS Stripes scarf tied around my wrist and my scalloped Loeffler Randall wedges. My dress is a showstopper because it can be worn off the shoulder, one shoulder, or with a neck tie! My future sister-in-law, Ellie of Bling Wipes, worn this gorgeous MDS Stripes dress and my bestie, Allison, more this MDS Stripes skirt (it has a matching top too!).
The luncheon was held at the gorgeous restaurant, Fig & Olive.
With my girlfriend, Whitney, in Austin for our girlfriend, Jen’s, bachelorette! We did a biking drinking tour of Austin and stopped at the most fun bars! I’m wearing this J.Crew gingham dress that is technically a swimsuit coverup… it looks like it will be a little see-through but I worn it all day and was fine! My earrings are from last year but this pair of earrings is very similar.
We did a “Wig Party” for Jen’s bachelorette in Austin at Coco Coquette before heading out to some bars on Rainey Street. In case you can’t tell from the crazy wigs Allison and I picked, we had a ball! I highly recommend it for bachelorettes or birthday parties in Austin!
Peonies season is one of my favorite times on the year! Trader Joe’s always has the best selection or Whole Foods (Los Angeles tip: the Whole Foods in Brentwood on San Vicente has the best flower department!).
If you follow me on Instagram, then you’ve probably seen my Monday night tennis routine with Allison!
For our May Supper Club we went to Kato and had the most delicious pre-set menu that was actually affordable. We had our June Supper Club last week at Felix in Venice (oh my was it yummy!). More on my Supper Club here.
Edwin and I celebrated being engaged for one year (yes, we’re counting down until our wedding!) by going to dinner at the restaurant Edwin took me to the night we got engaged, Giorgio Baldi. I’m wearing this floral skirt (I snagged in when Tory had her big sale last month but it’s back on sale now! More sizes here) and a navy long sleeve tee.
A bunch of my girlfriends celebrated our friend, Whitney’s, birthday at Zinqué in Lido Marina Village. I’m wearing a Rebecca Taylor top from earlier this year (sold out now).
I flew to Phoenix for 24 hours to celebrate my friend Katherine (not pictured) at her baby shower at The Henry! I’m wearing a simple blouse (sold out – similar) and this skirt. My purse is sold out but I love this similar style.
My girlfriend, Abby, is moving back to New York so we celebrating with a friend dinner at Gracias Madre! P.S. you know Abby from here!
I headed to Lake Tahoe for one of my bestie’s bachelorette weekends! I’m wearing this swimsuit (on sale!) and these sunnies. I also love this similar one piece and this similar bikini – top, bottom.
Peonies in full bloom at my apartment! P.S. The painting in the background is from Well & Wonder. More on my art collection here.
Kiel James Patrick sent me the prettiest little nautical items for summer including this bow pearl bracelet and this knot necklace!
Have a great Tuesday!
How cute!! Happy summer break! Also I need the details on the ADORABLE pink shoes you wore to supper club!
Thanks so much Brooke! Ohhhh, they are J.Crew but they’ve been sold out for months 🙁
