Finally made it to California on the blog! The first day on the west coast could not have been more stereotypically perfect. Hot but not too hot and off to Malibu for the afternoon to relax and hang on a waterfront beach house with Revolve Clothing. First day back under the palm trees called for a very barely there crop top by AQ/AQ, which I have been waiting to wear with the perfect shorts. Enter pompoms and polkadots, to play up the structured crop. So happy to be by the beach again!

Florals are the most girly way to display your affection for Summer dressing. I am not usually an all out girly girl when it comes to dresses and florals but this Nicole Miller dress stole my heart! It looks like a two piece set, yet it is just two layers of the perfect amount of ruffles! Of course adding booties and a leather jacket to a girly look like this adds the perfect amount of edge to the look for some day time fun. Last week I rocked this dress on a trip to Minneapolis with Nicole Miller and my good friend Dylana (Colormenana) to take on the ever so popular All Star baseball game! It blew my mind how a single baseball game took over the entire city for the day and seeing the baseball wives and girlfriends dressed in Nicole Miller was obviously the girly and not so sporty highlight of the day of the day. We did also indulge in beer and not so healthy foods while watching the game later that day! More to come on that, so stay tuned!

Bikini by Volcom, Hat from Tillys

The heat of the Summer is in full effect and taking those steamy hot days to the beach and or a pool is a must. Hitting the beach on the east coast is not the first thing you think of when you are in a New York state of mind. But wait and think again! The east is full of perfect little spots and all that is missing is Palm Trees to complete the tropical holiday vibe. Dylana and I got spend the 4th of July weekend at a beach club in Connecticut. A spot where you can kind of totally forget that you are out east and not on a beach in the Bahamas. Sandy beaches and shades of blues surround the club and the water is an perfectly refreshing temperature. I love this Volcom bikini, it has everything I need a bikini to have, good fit, cute print and it stays on while pretending to be 10 years old hitting the slippy slide!

Top by Keepsake, Skirt by JoesJeans, Watch by Daniel Wellington, Sunnies by Fendi

White on white is the ultimate summer style combination, it brings out those sun kissed skin tones the a little blonder version of your hair and makes a strong I am in a light summer mood statement. A couple weekends ago Dylana and I had the ultimate suburbia experience at my cousins house in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. A place where white picket fences and sunsets with wide open neighborhood streets exist. It was so nice to escape the city for the weekend and trade sky scrapers for trees and open spaces. My weekend look is usually really casual, to me white on white falls under that category, and so does stacking just any bracelets that are lying around from the past week of jewelry layering. I love this Joes skirt it actually has layers of beautiful lace details, rather than matching it with the exact top (which I also own, shop here) I decided to go, with a slightly off matching combo. Hope you had a beautiful weekend.
