Wow, it's been awhile since I've done an outfit post around here, I need to get those blogging muscles back in actions. Before I head back to school in due time, I have been a busy bee by working on a plethora of content to roll out over the next month or so. If I happen to go radio silent at all (which is 100% going to happen), odds are I'm piled up to my head in school work. Aha, oh help. In other news, I've developed quite a crush on cherries lately, both sartorially and gastronomically. This new Reál top is simply sealing the deal and kissing the lips on this love affair. 

Before you go, many of you ask what size I wear in Reál... I normally wear a medium in the tops/dresses, but then bring them to the tailor to get them taken in here and there. However, I'd recommend sizing up if you are in-between sizes.

Wearing: Réalisation Par blouse, Vintage Levi's, Chanel ballet flats, Brandy Melville denim jacket (in-store only)

4th in Newport, Photo Diary

As you can tell from the title of this post, I'm veerryy behind in digital content. After the fourth, I went right to Texas, then home, then California, then Massachusetts, and now finally I am back home... before I head to Boston on Thursday. Ooof. 

Alas, here we are. Unlike previous weekend jaunts to Newport, which often involve a jamming sailing schedule, this one infolved a fair amount of beaching, surfing, and luxuriating-whilst drinking some Del's. Enjoy this photo diary and I'll be back soon to share my favorites from the month of July and begin working through my California content.

Endless Possibilities

The middle of July often brings along a summer style rut where all of those linen dresses and lace tops purchased back in May, become dull and blah. Thus, we must hit the style refresh button in order to spice things up. One of my favorite summer tricks is the scarf-as-a-shirt. Depending on the area size of your respectable scarf, options can be endless. In my case, I prefer the updated tube top.... plenty of shoulders and back to show off in the late summer sun. Try it on the beach or for dinner. Endless summer equals endless possibilities. 

Wearing: Hermes silk scarf (check TheRealReal), Aritzia skirt, Castañer espadrilles (Matches is my favorite place for them), Ray-Ban shades

WKND TRIP MIXTAPE

You, me, and another 40 million Americans are going to be hitting the road, rails, and tarmacs this weekend in honor of the best holiday weekend ever. Drumroll please.... the 4th of July!!! *cue the fireworks*

If you are also a music junkie, a la yours truly, or simply appreciate some enjoyable bops when you are in transit, I've got you covered. 

In the music motherland, aka Spotify, I've put together a playlist that will take you straight from the passenger seat to the beach. And once you have arrived at your sweet destination, switch over to my other playlist, dubbed "out here on the isle", for a glorious 22 hours and 17 minutes of sweet summatime jamming. 

As for me, I'll be heading up to Newport, Rhode Island for a big ole dosage of happy (constitutional and rightfully patriotic) American fun. 


OUT HERE ON THE ISLE

Thank You Nancy

I would be lying if I didn't admit that this look was completely, no-doubt-about-it, inspired by The Parent Trap... the 90s version of course. It's a hybrid of the twins' matching yellow looks and the Ralph Lauren button down looks. Thank you, Nancy Meyers for the plethora of sartorial inspiration. Please make another movie, so I can continue this journey.

Sidenote, yellow is the color of my dreams right now, hence this look. Faded yellow looks particularly charming with bright, firetruck red. Throws you for a loop of color confusion. It just works. 

Wearing: J.Crew linen button-down, Levi's vintage denim, Hunza G x Pandora Sykes bikini, and Ray-Ban shades
