What's good y'all!? For me, the answer is quite a bit. Lots of positive vibes goin' on in my world lately, which were amplified this past weekend when I spent a day near the beach. I say near because I was mainly hanging around the shops in Encinitas. On a whim, I walked down to the beach for the last time this summer. That's why I'm strolling on the beach in Frye boots like a crazy person but they're my sole mates (as always, pun intended) so I refused to take them off. While we're on the topic of emotional connections with inanimate objects, I must bring up this magical, embroidered elephant cap I've got on my head. Aprox. 5 years ago, I spotted a glorious hat identical to this one in a local antique shop. I remember thinking, "Woah this hat is super Clarissa Darling, must. have. it." Sadly and stupidly, I did not act on my impulse. Still dreaming about that hat two weeks later, I made a special trip to the antique shop to see if it was still there, only to find out that the store had closed down for good. I was heartbroken, scouring the web for the hat I regrettably turned down. My luck dried up for years until one day, by the grace of the fashion Gods, the little treasure showed up in my favorite resale store. It seemed as if it had been waiting for me after all this time. In an instant, I purchased the little fellow and ever since he's been my bestest hat friend. For an accessory, he and I have a ton in common. We enjoy long walks on the beach and completing cute outfits. Yup, pretty wild.
Meet my gorgeous lil' sis and photographer, Sam. She's a trooper for dealing with my nitpicky photo requests, so hats off to her!

Case on Point

After a couple years of rooting for team Android, I recently switch over to an Iphone, curious to see if it lived up to the massive hype. Part of me hates to admit it but I'm starting to understand the Iphone appeal. It's way easier to navigate, you can facetime with it, and there are lots more fun Iphone cases out there. OneLittleForest carries some of the coolest, most original phone cases I've come across. Inspired by nature, the designs stand out in a sea of boring, plain colored cases. What's even neater is that the cases are all handmade, which is a trait I always admire in a product. The awesome company mailed me a couple of my favorite ones to try out. Believe it or not, the cases are even more eye-catching in person, along with feeling sturdier than I expected. Plus, they make the perfect accessory for my boho looks. So case in point, my cases are on point.

A Sunday Smile

Once in a blue moon, I like to take a brief break from my boho looks to get in touch with my sophisticated, parisian side.  Black and white stripes reflect the French aesthetic better than any other print so what better opportunity to run in that direction than with this stripe, long-sleeve v-neck from Zeagoo?  Now, with stripes in the picture, it's reeeal easy to style this top stereotypically French à la a black beret. Nothing wrong with that of course, but I felt like opting for a big, black bow and a lace choker to give the ensemble a victorian flare. I used to wear lots of outfits similar to this one back in highschool. These days, my taste has only gotten more eclectic but it's fun to feel like French Fille struttin' the streets of Paris again. 

Not-so-conveniently, my necklace broke in the middle of this photoshoot. Not sure if it's possible to save this gem but I won't go down without a fight. If you guys ever see it in a future post, you'll know the operation was a success.
