Lauren Ralph Lauren.

For years upon years I’ve been a fan of everything Ralph Lauren designs which is why I was beyond excited when asked to be a part of the Lauren Ralph Lauren Summer 2017 Collection Campaign!! As Always, all the pieces are timeless and sophisticated and can be worn easily from day to evening. As most may notice, I tend to stick mostly to neutrals and almost never wear the color red (or tomato in this case) but when I put this dress on I felt vibrant and seen! I love a good shift dress and this cutie, with it’s boat neck and embellished sleeves was exactly what my wardrobe needed! I mean, hello statement dress!! I decided to let it speak for itself by keeping the rest of the look neutral (cheetah print is a neutral for me!). Which brings me to the bag ….

I also love a good structured bag and this one does not disappoint! Keeping it classy as always this Lauren Ralph Lauren bag is the perfect accessory to almost any outfit. The creamy, textured leather and gold hardware moves this bag to the top of my list and has kept me carrying it since the moment I received it! Wanna shop for your own statement pieces?

Soaking Up The Sunshine :)

Ahh, soaking up this sunshine as often as I can! Even if it’s for a short amount of time, having a tote that’s already packed with all the beach essentials makes quick little outings like this one sooooooo much easier! I absolutely love this one from Target , obviously, as you’ve been seeing it constantly on LBR lately. I also love a good oversized beach towel! I picked this one up from TJ Maxx, but you can purchase it online here. As for my coverup, I found it at H&M a couple years ago, so I’ll leave a few options for you below. Happy shopping! ❤

Saturday was a good day to hang at Ocean Beach, watch some surfing, drink a couple margarita’s, and people watch! The weather was amazing and the beach was packed due to the Revolve Surf Series that was going on. O.B. is super cool. Kinda retro, a little hippie-ish and totally laid back … all perfect vibes for a sunny weekend ❤

I was gifted this for my birthday a couple months ago and I’m so in love with it! I’ll be featuring it more and more in upcoming posts! ❤

So, you’ve heard how I like to spend my weekends, how do you like to spend yours?? ❤

I have a deep love for Mid-Century Modern houses. So much so that whenever I find myself in the Point Loma neighborhood of San Diego, I always have to drive by this beauty!! Super retro with all the originals and landscaping that’s to die for! Located on a corner lot with uh-mazing views of the ocean and Sunset Cliffs, it’s by far my most favorite! I’ve heard Palm Springs hosts a walkable tour in the fall of all the Albert Frey houses including houses from the infamous “Rat Pack”. Does anyone have any insight on this? It would be awesome to see that kind of architecture and decor! I aspire to own my own Mid-Century one day but until then, I’ll just keep pining over this one ❤

Dress: Dex Black Oxford Dress or Bailey Dress or Zac Posen / Sandals: Forever 21 / Hat: Eugenia Kim (similar) / Bag: Merona Straw Tote (Target)

Special mornings consist of Reece and I bike riding through our adorable little beach town, looking at all the houses, chatting, and just enjoying each others company. It’s more likely than not at some point in time I’ll spot something I find interesting or fabulous and want to turn around a take a picture of it. I wasn’t exactly prepared to do a photoshoot on this particular morning however, when passing by this super rad VW Bus I instantly did a U-Turn and begged for my picture to be taken!

It’s so awesome to have a husband who’s always on the same page! Anyway, we stopped to take pictures and just as we were leaving a man asks if we’d like to see the inside .. uh, yea! And so he showed us all this VW Bus has to offer, told us stories of where its been (Recently Baja California) and how it’s been restored, even being featured on the cover of a well established California magazine! I think what I loved most about this meeting was seeing the joy and pride the owner has for his VW. It’s lovely to hear and as he told us these stories while I stared at this beauty I could only imagine the wild times he’s had traveling and living out of that bus. This man was older but his heart was so young. While standing in from of the apartment building he owns he said to Reece and I before we left, ” VW Buses keep me young, maybe one day when I grow up I’ll live in a house like a normal person, but until then I’m gonna keep hittin’ the road.” … And I just loved that ❤
