Floral Fate

Are you guys tired of seeing these bougainvillea yet? I hope not. There's more ;)
Funny thing about this AMAZING spot...Dawn and I were driving around LA trying to get to our next shot location which I think was Venice Beach. So we we're trying to figure out the right directions when I accidentally missed the exit to get onto the freeway. That's when we both spotted this floral, old car oasis. It was seriously as though we were looking at a scene from a magazine. It was too perfect to pass up so I quickly pulled over so we could get some shots in front of it all. I swear it was some type of floral fate! 
Wrap dresses are quickly filling up my closet. I love the shape and the feminine feel they have. They're perfect for dressing up with a low heel or sandal or for dressing down with a comfy sneaker. I guess I will have to transition to wrap maxi dresses as we get closer to fall!

Staud Two Piece on Venice Beach

Can I just be transported to Venice Beach please? It was so beautiful, warm, and the sun had the prettiest glow. Everything about it was magical! 

My friend/photographer Dawn and I made our way down the the lifeguards lookouts and I had been wanting to take photos at them. I didn't know if it was allowed or not because of all of the cones surrounding them. So I cautiously walked up to it and saw a couple of big, buff, tan lifeguards inside. I'm actually pretty shy at times so seeing them made me nervous! haha not to mention they were cute! But they saw us and told us that we could take photos on there. I was still too nervous to go up there! I didn't want to talk to the buff lifeguards and be so touristy taking photos! hahah So then Dawn told me she would buy me a margarita if I did, so she ended up convincing me haha.
I slowly walked up the ramp and the cutest one came out and started to pose with me and handed me his rescue can insisting that I pose with it too. He kept trying to give me ideas on poses and photos but I'm not trying to be mean...they were all terrible! haha
It doesn't seem to crazy but I was SO embarrassed and couldn't stop laughing about the whole situation. I guess you had to be there but every time I see these photos, it takes me back to that! hahah See below for more! haha

Alsoooo, have you guys heard of the label Staud before? I have been stalking them on instagram and drooling over their collections for quite awhile now. So of course I was super excited when I saw that they did a collaboration with Urban Outfitters. The pieces are to die for! I knew I had to get something! I ended up going with this set and it was the perfect summer piece especially for hanging around Venice beach.

Frank Body!

Scrubs have been my latest bath obsession! I love how they make your skin feel super soft and they smell great! This one from Frank Body has the best smell especially if you're a fellow coffee lover like me! It's so important in today's crazy world to just take a moment aside for yourself so why not take a bath with Frank Body? It's the perfect way for me to unwind just for a bit. You can also pair it with the body balm to really leave your skin extra soft!
If you guys didn't know, Frank Body is sold at Urban Outfitters, Ulta Beauty and online for the US! Go grab some and let me know what you think!

Stripes on Stripes

This set from Flair the Label just screams summer to me. It's the perfect set for going to the beach, getting drinks with friends or having dinner outside with your love...all the best summer things. I love how well it actually fit in with the desert scenery too. Typically stripes seem perfect for the coast but it was cool rocking them in the desert as well.
You guys definitely need to check out Flair the Label. They have so  many great pieces like this set and more. Also, did you see the tie back, I LOVE IT.

We stumbled upon this beautiful cactus lined fence on our way to check out the Pioneer motel. It was SO beautiful! I think living in the Northwest has given me a slight obsession with cactus because I didn't see them much growing up. They're always so interesting and cool to see in the wild! Even though I am a NW girl, the desert has a special place in my heart.

SIDE NOTE: It's been a busy month already and I have an exciting project coming up that I can't wait to share, make sure and follow me on Instagram to see!

The Most Magical Place on Earth

Ever since I went to Joshua Tree for the first time a couple of weeks ago, I can't get it out of my head. It's seriously one of those places you have to go to in order to understand all of the hype behind it. I loved the odd feeling of it as though you weren't on earth for a bit and the beautiful sunset the night before. It was just so relaxing and everything I had hoped it would be.

Unfortunately, we didn't have too much time to explore Joshua Tree National Park but we did get to see some highlights of the park including the Jumbo Rocks! It was so much fun exploring and hopping from rock to rock. There were lots of Joshua Trees in Las Vegas but none were like these!
This Madewell floral maxi dress was the perfect dress for the atmosphere. It felt as though I was a character in West World (my boyfriend and I just finished season 1). 

And a side note, this dress would be such a great transitional piece into fall as well...plussss it's on sale. GO GET IT!
