I've become more obsessed with finding staple "bottoms" rather than staple tops lately and these pants are a prime example of what I'd call, a summer staple piece. One thing that I've also consistently noticed is that these pants have never failed to transform my outfit to a more classy look, even if the purpose is unintended. Worn with a blouse for work, a tank for a night out, and even with a simple white cotton-tee for a casual summer day, these pants seem to have that magical ability to boost any outfit to simple sophistication.
LOS GATOS WITH RED STRIPES BOUTIQUE
My favorite all-time season has always been summer. There's something about the Cali heat mixed with easy summer dressing, outdoor hobbies, an increase in melatonin and longer days that has always attracted me to summer. I especially love summer though for the variability of outfits I get to wear ranging from dresses, shorts, skirts... basically anything that shows legs haha.
For those around my area (the bay area, California) me and a few other local bloggers teamed up with Red Stripes Boutique to showcase a "Summer Essentials" event over at Los Gatos Bar & Grill this Saturday, June 22, 2013 from 4-6PM.
Come by and say hi, I'd love to meet you! :) (more details below)
I bought these kids sized overalls last summer at H&M (mistakingly found them in the adults room fitting room rack- first worn here) and at that time had no idea how trending overalls would be in 2013. I used to love wearing overalls as a kid, and every time I slip into these I always become reminiscent of my past childhood. I was a pretty adventurous and troublesome kid growing up, and I can't help but become eager to get a bit rambunctious every time I have these on. I think it's safe to say, these overalls will only come out on weekends.
ON A HOT SUMMER DAY
Sometimes I have the most difficult time figuring out what to wear under sheer clothes. Camis can take away from the "sheer" vibe by blending in too much, while bralettes are only appropriate in certain occasions. While I'm still attempting to figure out the perfect balanced undertone piece, I figured this crochet bralette would be forgiving to wear especially in the hot summer heat. This weekend, was one of the most relaxing weekends I've had in months and the heat definitely made it easy for me to "get away" for having a much needed lazy weekend.
IN SILKY PRINTS
I seriously can't believe it's been more than a whole month since I've last blogged. May has been a crazy month for me with grad school finals, work, a trip to Vegas and also LA. Although the lack of sleep has been creeping up on me, it's hard to complain about sleepless nights when your days are full of worthwhile and meaningful adventures. I'm a firm believer of working hard while living life to your full potential and once heard a quote "everyday do something that will inch you towards a better tomorrow". Living life to this motto daily has caused some great things to unfold in life. Anyone else have daily quotes they aspire to live by?
