A lightweight, printed kimono is definitely one of my favorite throw-on-and-go pieces for warm weather, and paired with an equally breezy tank dress, this one is summertime perfection. Elevate the look with platform wedges and a bold red handbag, and finish with bohemian gold jewelry. (And yes, I'm featuring this necklace
for the second time in about a week because I've become a little obsessed. I think my summer wardrobe needs
it, no?) Hope everyone's week is off to a great start! xoxo P.S. - Don't forget to enter the Havaianas Giveaway for your chance to win a pair of sandals, just in time for summer!
This weekend we spent an amazing couple of days camping up in Bishop, California. I had never been before, but the town itself was pretty cute, and the campgrounds and lakes just outside of town
were seriously beautiful. We had so much fun spending time with good friends around a fire, hanging out by the lake (pretending to fish), and spending the night in a tent (alternating between freezing at night and sweating through the mornings). It's rough coming back to the real world, but I can think of no better way to ease into the work week than with comfy boyfriend jeans and an easy bohemian blouse. Flat sandals, a standout bag and fun silver accessories (seriously loving this necklace) are the perfect cherries on top. Hope everyone else had an amazing weekend! xoxo P.S. - Don't forget to enter the Havaianas Giveaway!

Sometimes there's nothing like coming home after a long day and slipping into comfy sweats and flip flops and diving face-first in the direction of the couch. Although I think I'm breaking some sort of blogger oath by admitting it, for me, that's instant joy, and the sandal of choice for years has been Havaianas. They're available in tons of colors, and the squishy, molds-to-your-feet rubber is so comfortable and perfect for the beach. In the spirit of mini victories, Havaianas is giving away a pair of their Classic Sandals
to one lucky My Style Diaries reader. Enter below, (US residents only) and get ready to have a little instant joy of your own. Good luck! xoxo P.S. - If you're feeling lucky, check out the Havaianas #InstantJoy giveaway on Facebook, and upload your own instant joy moment via Instagram. (Ends at midnight tonight.)
So far, this week has been warm to say the least, and with highs this weekend in the 90's, I'm pretty sure that summer has officially arrived in Southern California. Growing up in Louisiana, jeans were always banned from rotation in the summer, but this wide-leg chambray version from Current/Elliott has me changing my mind. They are so soft and comfortable, and with a lightweight sleeveless blouse, overheating is a little less likely. A new favorite structured handbag and some old favorite bangles finished off the look. Hope everyone is having a great week!
Blame my love of playing dress-up as a kid (which actually never stopped), but I'm seriously drawn to this flapper-esque, totally impractical for my life by the beach, white fringe mini dress. Create the perfectly-impractical (but oh-so-chic) Friday night look by pairing the fun fringe number with this exaggerated tassel necklace
and bold, multi-print heels. Finish with a bright summer bag and more gold jewels. xoxo

This past weekend was one of the most jam-packed (and exhausting) we've had in a while, but it was so much fun. We celebrated a couple of birthdays with friends and got to attend the beautiful wedding
of one of my favorite couples. On Saturday, we spent a relaxing afternoon wine tasting in Temecula (a definite must if you're ever in the area). The weather was amazing, the wine was delicious, and the company of good friends made for the perfect way to spend a Saturday. How was your Memorial Day weekend? xoxo Oh, and P.S. - After mentioning my distraught over my lost watch in Friday's post, it was pretty much immediately found. Bonus points for the weekend.
Well kids, it's Friday, and not just any old Friday. It's the Friday before a three-day weekend, and I couldn't be happier about it. Cue the comfy-as-pajamas t-shirt dress and far played-out Zara necklace. (Listen, after over four years together, I've misplaced my favorite gold watch, and I'm a little out of sorts about it. I've become attached with a certain embroidered collar, and I'm not taking it off.) Anyways, I'm pretty excited about some kick-ass plans this weekend, including a little wine-tasting and wedding-going, and I hope you're stoked about your own long weekend. How will you be spending the next three glorious days?
I'm all about incorporating a little color into my wardrobe this summer, so I'm excited to team up with Crystal Light and Glam for the #FeeltheFlavor Instagram contest. This one is all about bringing flavors to life and finding colorful moments from the everyday inspired by the six new Crystal Light Liquid flavors - Strawberry Lemonade, Peach Bellini, Iced Tea, Pomtini, Blueberry Raspberry, and Mango Passionfruit. Whether you're inspired by style (your own or someone else's), decor, or entertainment, share your finds on Instagram with the hashtag #FeeltheFlavor for a chance to win one of four goody bags full of fun summer essentials. (See rules and enter here
.) The look above makes me think of Strawberry Lemonade, and this bold pink mini dress is probably the brightest thing I own. It's an oldie but goodie for sure. (Some would say I have a problem letting go of things in my closet, but when I pull out a dress I love that I haven't worn in years, it makes the clutter a little more worth it, no?) Since it isn't quite summer yet, I paired it with an easy denim jacket. Nude wedges, aviators, and a straw clutch completed the look.
What flavors in your closet, home, makeup bag or surroundings are currently inspiring you? xoxo

There's no better time than summer (or the verge of it at least) to play with bold colors, and I love the combination of these hot pink skirt-like shorts with a classic red bag. Keep the rest of the outfit neutral with a wear-with-everything ivory blouse and nude, barely-there heels. Finish with mixed flashes of silver and rose gold for a flirty, ladylike look that will take you from day to night in a flash. Hope everyone is having a fabulous week! xoxo P.S. - Now through Monday, May 27th, take an additional 40% off all sale items over atGorjana & Griffin. Plus, enjoy free ground shipping.

I've definitely had a thing for Zara shorts lately, and I have a feeling this little love affair is just getting started. Whether they're striped linen
, or silver sequins
, you really can't go wrong with a pair of statement shorts for summer. For an easy and chic warm weather look, pair roomy linen shorts with an ultra lightweight chambray shirt and add nude wedges. Finish with a crossbody bag and a few statement gems. What summer staples are currently on repeat in your wardrobe? xoxo
