Although summer is in full effect here, it still gets pretty chilly by the beach once the sun goes down, so I live for easy cardigans that pair well with my summer wardrobe. I love the fringe trim of this navy version from Margaret O'Leary, and it's the perfect sundown topper for my favorite summer t-shirt dresses. I couldn't help myself from taking the turquoise / tan fringe / silver jewels road, and I'm loving the way the outfit moves. How would you wear this fringed cardi this summer?

I'm so happy that I got to spendFather's Day yesterday with my parents (especially my dad) who drove out to California from Louisiana. Our plans included good friends and family, margaritas, and really amazing Mexican food, so I thought a pair of loose-fitting, wide-leg pants was my best option. (And after my fair share of crab and shrimp enchiladas, I'm pretty sure these comfy pants were a good choice.) I scooped up this blouse from a local boutique and love how the dots mimic the dot-like horse print of the pants, and the faux ostrich clutch takes the print one step further. I finished the look with a new fun favorite: a red lip! (Nars Dragon Girl, as recommended by a few ladies in the know.) Hope everyone had an amazing weekend and an even better Father's Day!

As I mentioned yesterday, I spent the past couple of days in Seattle for a blogger panel with Nordstrom along with Devon, Sierra, and Mara. The trip was definitely short but sweet, and it was really great discussing style blogs with some of the fabulous folks at Nordstrom and Glam Media. After the panel, we headed to Nordstrom for a little shopping (obviously) where I purchased my first bold red lipstick, well, ever, thanks to a little prodding from Sierra and the lovely Brie from Nordstrom's PR team. (You can check out the post-red-lip shot here. You like?) Overall it was an amazing first time in Seattle, and although I didn't want to leave, it's nice to be home just in time for the weekend. Happy Friday, everyone!
Pictures just really don't do this city justice

Really beautiful happy hour at the Edgewater Hotel (If you ever have the chance, highly recommend a stay here.)
Post-manicure: short and nude, just like I like them
This week I'm spending a couple of days in Seattle for a blogger panel with Nordstrom and Glam Media. I'll be in really good company for the panel (with Mara, Devon, and Sierra), but yesterday I was on my own to explore Downtown Seattle. The city is really beautiful, and I've decided that I must come back when I can stay for a few nights. Above are a few Instagram shots from yesterday, and there are more to come (so follow along!). Hope everyone is having a great week!
There's something about retro-inspired pieces that just work so well for summer. I love a good chunky platform sandal paired with easy-fitting shorts and a printed blouse. Add a briefcase-like clutch and a leather watch for a slight menswear feel, and finish with an eclectic mix of jewels. Hope everyone is having a great week!
P.S. - I'm off to Seattle with Glam and Nordstrom today, so follow along on Instagram and Twitter for some fun snaps!

If you're like me, then there's a pretty good chance that old New Year's resolution is, um, long gone. Well, summer is here, and there's no better time to get with it, girl. (Lucky for me, I have Old Navy to remind me.) To help get your booty in motion, Old Navy is having a sweet sale on all of their looks-great but feels-even-better activewear. The compression capris (on sale for $17!) fit like a cozy little glove, and I'm newly obsessed with this slub-knit hoodie. These are just the type of pieces that could almost turn me into one of those people who lives in her yoga gear. Almost. But then, it is Orange County, so I'm pretty sure that's totally allowed. Have you guys tried Old Navy's selection of active gear?

As predicted, these silk shorts from Zara have been in high rotation since summer temperatures arrived. With a lack of any real plans this weekend (and some much-needed lazy time), I went a little more casual and paired the short shorts with a printed tank and vest combination. An old favorite pair of wedges and stacked bangles rounded out the look. Hope everyone had a great weekend!

One of my favorites in quite a while, I pulled this dress out of the box and immediately put it on. (Bonus: wrinkle-free.) I love the color combination of the blush and blue and the simple silhouette for summer. The slip underneath is ridiculously soft, and the lightweight chiffon overlay makes this one ideal for hot weather. This time I paired it with a long lariat necklace and matchy-matchy accessories, but next time I'm thinking I'll opt for suede booties and stacks of bangles. How would you wear it? Happy Friday, y'all!

A crisp, scalloped cotton skirt can really work wonders for your wardrobe full of "nothing to wear" during the summer. For a casual take, throw on a comfy tee and sandals and call it a day, but if you're looking to pull yourself together, pair the warm weather staple with a tank and printed blazer. Heeled sandals in a bold hue and sleek jewelry keep the look classic. How would you wear this skirt?

Summertime is romper season, and this printed ruffle one was definitely a favorite cheapie find last summer. Although I don't usually buy much navy, I couldn't pass up this adorable (and slightly random) bird print at a Las Vegas Forever 21. (Even more random than the bird print? Probably.) It's so easy paired with tan wedges and a basic belt. The bag is still a current favorite, and bare arms mean I can pile on the bangles without snagging sweater sleeves. Oh summer, it's been far too long.
