Summer Florals


On our days off D & i like to spend time doing "me" things but together. does that even make sense? he likes to skate at the park and i'll just bring along a book and sit and read while he goes and does his thing. watching him skate is fun but sometimes i feel like an uber creeper just watching him. there was a short time when i would bring my board and try to skate with him but the place we go to now has the roughest ground ever and i'm so afraid of tripping over a rock and breaking my arm or something. i'm definitely not as confident on that rough ass ground. we definitely need to find a new skate spot so i can join in on the fun but i mean, i'm in no hurry---i love spending this time reading. my goodreads goal for this year was 15 books so i could focus on my movie watching, but that hasn't proved to be as fruitful. but i still have til the end of the year to catch-up--we'll see!
dress: minkpink via threadsence, sweater: tulle, ankle boots: dolce vita (via macys), heartbeats necklace: erica weiner, glasses: derek cardigan via coastal.com, lip color: mirenesse lip bomb no. 4 via ipsy bag

Remember when i mentioned the weather was being really weird? It's still being super weird. I think it's living so close to the beach now that i feel very thrown off about the "summer" weather. i have spent most of my life living more inland in the SGV and every summer there is SCORCHING hot. so naturally i expected murderous heat this year and nothing yet. just weird humid stuff. today was windy and kind of chilly, hence this sweater. mreh, at least the weather's unpredictability keeps us on our toes!
i love this MINKPINK floral dress! my hair covers most of the top (sorry!) so you can't really see the sweetheart top but that's really my favorite part of this dress. also the fact that it's not too short and it's not long! just right. sometimes i wear it with my docs but that sort of makes it look reeeeallllyyy 90s so i tried something different today. haha.
...and what is any outfit of mine without my signature erica weiner piece, right? haha. here is probably my favorite Erica Weiner piece, the Heartbeats necklace. you can't really tell but it says "This Must Be the Place"---my favorite Talking Heads song. You can see a closer image of the writing here.

okay, leeds out! have a happy monday everyone!

    1. thanks jessica! i actually usually pair this dress with my heeled docs, but i felt like it needed to not be so 90s for once. i was feeling skeptical about these dolce vitas with it so thanks for the reassurance!

  4. hahah you are SUCH an erica fan-girl! and i love love love this outfit. the dress with the cardi and the booties looks amazing. perfect for that super weird weather. and i totally LOLed imagining you creeping on your bf while he's skating. it seems like a nice set up though- you each get to do your own thing but enjoy each other's presence :)
