Romper: Tularosa | Bag: Chanel | Shoes: Dolce Vita

I’m celebrating the Fourth of July with some white & blue stripes in the form of this little summer romper by Tularosa.

I am loving the brand Tularosa right now, with so many cute rompers and dresses with very boho vibes and perfect for warm days like this one in Capitola, where I shot with photographer Jenna Alcala. Needless to say, this romper will be on repeat this summer.

I’ve been wearing these Dolce Vita block heels with everything. They also come in black. I love that these heels can pair so easily with different pieces and instantly add a bit of chic. I added a bit more blue with my Chanel Denim Boy bag because it is America’s birthday after all :)

I’ll be watching the fireworks from afar in Cabo. Trip details and sandy photos coming soon…

20150624_Ariana__1686_originalTee: 35mm | Shorts: Rag & Bone | Bus: Georgia

just love that the little seaside town of Capitola, with its colorful houses and boho vibes, is close enough for a quick day trip to soak in the sun and salty air.

It was a gorgeous day on the coast and plenty warm enough to rock a pair of my favorite shorts (boyfriend fit) by Rag & Bone. This ‘Left Coast’ tee, I paired here, is from Planet Blue and made by 35mm clothing.

While on my little coastal excursion, I had the opportunity to shoot with an amazing photographer named Jenna Alcala. I had the best time exploring the town’s little gems with Jenna. One of which is Georgia, a.ka. the ‘Booth Bus‘; a photo booth in a bus! I was so excited to find that Jenna & her husband own Georgia and this boho beauty can be rented for events/parties! How awesome is that?!

Stay tuned for more to come from my beach day in Capitola…

With Independence Day less than a week away, I’m feeling fashionably patriotic.

This nautical white dress from Aritzia with its rope belt, is the perfect flowy white summer dress to bring in the Fourth of July.

I completed this look with these Chanel espadrilles and this navy & white striped Weekender tote by Brandy Melville. Navy & white is my favorite combination for summertime and perfect for land or sea :)

I’ve added a few of my favorite weekenders below that would be perfect for any adventure!

It’s no secret that I love almost anything lace, but I’m beginning to notice I may also have a thing for blue and white stripes lately. Maybe it’s the slightly Parisian, slightly nautical elements, but it just looks so summery and chic, especially with lace, making this dress by Greylin absolutely perfect. Pairing this dress with my Chanel gold wallet on a chain and Stuart Weitzman nude sandals (heels) can add to the femininity and sophistication of this look.

First stop is Buds Stop in the Marina, where I love picking up fresh flowers. It’s always so fun to create your own arrangement. Then it was on to birthday fun and libations in my new dress :)

This little summer dress by Club Monaco is the perfect attire for a beautiful Sunday out and about. You can’t ever have enough white summer dresses. Nothing says summer like a little white dress and they are so flattering against a summer tan.

I love the girly fit of this dress. I am having major dress envy at Club Monaco, which had so many great summer dress options right now. I paired by Schutz sandals with this little number for my Sunday best and my Prada bag as well because I just love the way this shade of blue looks against white :)
