This past weekend I was crushing hard on the 70’s, I spent a majority of my weekend grooving out to Fleetwood Mac, and The Mammas and the Pappas while frolicking outside. Luckily for my slight 70’s addiction (or maybe not so slight) I’m pretty stocked on all of your flower child essentials, all perfect for a spring outfit.
To start off this vintage Forever 21 dress, (totally joking about the vintage part) was a recent rediscovery from my closet, I’ve had it for a few years and can’t seem to get enough of it. The fabric is light weight flowy and breathable all musts for a hot California day . It cinches in at the waist creating a very flattering shape the slightly oversized bell sleeves come down at and angle for optimum frolicking action. Is it me or is anyone else getting major dessert flower child vibes from the print?
I kept my accessories minimal opting for an oversized straw hat and wicker vintage clutch a match made in heaven. Of course I live in my Karen Walker Super Dupers year round they Shapes frames my face perfectly.
These Steve Madden espadrille wedges are a new addition to my closet, I now know why they are the shoe of the summer. I found mine at DSW for only $59.99 and let me tell you I’m running back for all the other shades, they are absolute perfection. The brown suede against the light rope scream summer and the strap make them easy to walk in all day long.
I’m sure this outfit this going to be on repeat, all summer long.
What is your current favorite outfit be sure to share in the comment below.

Like most people I look forward to the weekend all week long, I look can’t wait to putting together a cute outfit, cheek out a new cafe or just spending the day outdoors. my family came to visit and celebrate El Dia Del Nino (kids day) so we decided to pack up picnic and take advantage of the beautiful sunny day.
I have to say I feel really #blessed to have so many beautiful beaches, parks, and hiking trails near me (all perfect for a great Instashot ). We decided to head to one for our favorite spots, Lovers Point a cute little picnic area in Pacific Grove. We love that it has easy access to the beach but also has plenty of grassy areas to lay down a picnic blanket and enjoy the beautiful view. On sunny days, it’s absolutely mind blowing!
We spent a majority of our afternoon playing with the kids on the grass and running around. My nephew and son really enjoyed the sunny weather, we played freebie and enjoyed a delicious lunch with the sound of crashing waves behind us making the day even better.
I knew we would be running around a lot so I needed a very comfortable and flexible outfit. I opted for my new favorite off the shoulder striped top, paired with rolled up straight leg jeans and my lace-up nude sandals from Payless Shoes ( check out my Spring shoe essentials) it made for a light and airy spring outfit. On days that I need to be hands free my go to bag is my Kate Spade backpack it’s classic, and offers enough space that I can pack all of babies needs. Of course these days I try to capture every moment so I never leave the house with-out my camera.
After lunch we went down to Cannery Row, and did a little more walking around and popped into Ghirardelli for a cheeky late afternoon treat. I totally recommend the Presidio Passion Strawberry Sundae, it’s amazing!
It was a fantastic weekend, I’m already counting down the days until the next! I’d love to hear how you all spent your weekend, share it down below.
