Suit Yourself

01jumpsuit
Jumpsuit, romper, or basically any one-piece is my ultimate guilty pleasure in the summertime. It's the closest thing to pajamas without looking like I just rolled out of bed! Whether I am out running errands or having a picnic in the park, jumpsuit is my go-to! I love this black and white tribal print one I am wearing. I just slipped it on and paired it with some cute accessories... like these awesome zippered peep-toe sandals, fringed bucket bag, and wood framed sunnies... VoilĂ ! Easy, effortless, statement! Seriously, it doesn't get easier than this!

Photos to Patterns

One of the many awesome things about being a blogger is making connections and meeting new people. A couple months ago, I met Sara of Design Comb at a brunch event. Upon checking out her Instagram feed, I was immediately drawn to her style... fresh, clean, and slight quirky. When I got home that day I found myself scrolling through her blog page after page. It's not every day that you meet someone who shares similar aesthetics as yours AND also have two cats! Anyways, last week Sara and I collaborated on a creative project together where she turned a few of my San Francisco related photographs into patterns. They are seriously awesome and so much fun, check them out yourself...

Day 1 - Started off with sea lions! From Pier 39 to Santa Cruz to Monterey, sea lions are always hanging out soaking up some sun!

Fun in the Sun

03sunsmart
Poof! Just like that and April is gone! But May (my birthday month) is here and summer is just around the corner! With the weather getting warmer, chances are we will soon be spending more time in the sun. Just make sure you are being mindful about protecting your skin and body while soaking up loads of vitamin D!

1. Wear appropriate clothing to protect yourself from the harmful effects of the sun. Lighter colored clothing will deflect some of the sun’s rays to keep you cooler. Opt for a long tunic or maxi dress for more coverage. Grab a hat! Hats are great accessories and they make perfect protective gear!

2. Stay hydrated! A can of soda or a pincher of margarita might sound delicious but try to limit sugary drinks! Water is the best choice when it comes to staying hydrated. Not only does it quench your thirst, but it will also keep your energy levels up to prevent heat exhaustion. If you are feeling fancy, throw in your favorite citrus or berries and make some fruit-infused water!

3. Sunscreen! Sunscreen! Sunscreen! Wear it and then reapply it! I don't think sunburn or peely skin will ever be in style!

Peonies

02peonyromper-horizontal
Floral print is nothing new, obviously. But the flowers making up the print are usually roses or daisies. Peonies, despite its popularity, almost never makes it onto a piece of garment. I was thrilled when I saw this romper! The floral print looks like peonies! I also love the ultra feminine combination of pink and purple as well as the cute fluttered neckline and sleeves! I paired it with a cream bucket bag and these lovely bow strappy sandals. Hmm the more I look at it, the more they look like garden roses that resemble peonies... Oh well, that's good enough for me!

Pleated Wisteria

02cindyjohnny
Ok, I lied... the floral print isn't really wisteria, but the periwinkle color and the way they look remind me of it. Not to mention how wisteria also drapes in layers, much like the pleated layers on the dress! I don't typically wear blue of any kind so when I do I feel a little special. This dress by Cindy + Johnny is such a statement on its own that I paired it with some simple white accessories... a small chained purse and heeled mules. A simple and lovely look on an easy breezy Spring day!
