California Light

Often when people think of  California, images of bright, sunny beaches and palm trees towering over streets pop into their head. As iconic and inspiring as these CA traits might be, there's a side of the state that steals my heart faster than any other: The Wine Country. There's nothing like the sight of vineyards stretching for what seems like miles upon miles and the refined wineries neighboring them. It's the perfect blend of rural and luxury- a combo I wanted embody with this look. Staying true to the whole country feel, I went with this gorgeous prairie dress and cowboy boots. Also, I needed a bag for my vineyard exploration so I brought along this adorable Milanoo horse print bag. (The closest I'll get to traveling with a horse which I'm cool with.) At this point, the outfit needed a bit more chicness which called for some classic red lips and a red floppy sun hat to match. (along with a ridiculous amount of jewlery to Lexify it, of course.) ♥

Blind Faze

I like to think of this look as a babydoll take on 70's glam rock. You can call it "Bubblegum Glam Rock" if you're like me and enjoy classifying styles with ridiculous names. (And we can get it trending on tumblr- It'll be like the new pastel goth or something.) Tongue-in-cheek aside, I adore mixing spunky, retro looking pieces like this shag vest and wedge boots with sweet n' sassy details like these heart sunnies. What steals the show in this outfit, however, is this gorgeous Milanoo British-style romper. The print just screams vintage to me: I could so see it in a small boutique in London during the 70's. (I'm glad it's not though because the chances of me getting my hands on it would be waaay slimmer.)

Frame by Frame

Confession: I am completely hooked on palazzo pants- hook, line and sinker I tell ya! This isn't the first time I've declared my love for them on the blog but I thought I'd remind you guys since it's been quite sometime that I've featured them. To be real, I don't have much luck finding ones I like (they always seem to be a polyester- not the best material when it's 90 degrees out) so I only own a couple pairs. But I ain't giving up on my search. I'll own all the (preferably cotton like the beautiful Free People ones I'm wearing) palazzo pants one day and you best believe I'll pair them with crop tops too!
