Even though I was born and raised on the East Coast in Orlando (407 represent!), I’ve always been a West Coast girl at heart. There’s just something about the California lifestyle that intrigued me from a young age—the endless summer days, palm trees everywhere, rock coastlines—not to mention the style and trends that come with it.
A classic accessory that’s making a total comeback, pearls are being featured in a big way for the upcoming fall season. However, they’re no longer the ones you once wore while channeling Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Teamed with rhinestones and studs on sandals, jeans, jackets and more, pearls have become the embellishment of choice for pretty much everything.
Soon enough, America will be celebrating its 241st birthday, and might I say, does she look good. Since the Fourth of July holiday (unfortunately) falls on a Tuesday this year, most of us will probably be celebrating the weekend before, which is THIS WEEKEND believe it or not.
Summer is officially here, which means it’s time to give your favorite black bag a rest and opt for something a little more vacation inspired. Straw, raffia, wicker, ratan—basket bags are definitely the ‘it’ style of the season, designed with everything from rainbow pom poms to cute phrases.
Last weekend, I had the opportunity to visit one of Los Angeles’s most sought-after summer attractions: the Museum of Ice Cream. In case it hasn’t been filling up your Instagram feed like it has mine, the pop-up museum is a converted warehouse in downtown’s Arts District with the most photo-worthy art installations, activities and, of course, ICE CREAM.
If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you might remember my post last summer (the first-ever post on Sartorially OC!) about the season’s pineapple trend. Well, to no one’s surprise, the ‘food as fashion’ trend is back this year, but with a twist. Citrus has been taking over the style scene with lemons (thank you, Beyoncé) owning the spotlight as the summer’s fruit of choice.
