What’s a long weekend without some sun, shorts, and cute, comfy sandals?  I was going for the LA laid-back style with this outfit.  Fitting, since I lounged all day at our friend’s pool party in Orange County over Memorial Day weekend.  The day could not have been more gorgeous: palm trees swaying, margarita in hand (our friend rented a margarita machine, genius!), sun shining with a hint of a breeze…the warm afternoon flew by like a blur.  The best part was meeting the newest addition to our friends’ family, baby Caden.  He is such a cutie pie and I could not stop pinching his cheeks!


Adorable baby Caden!

Red, White, and Blue in Sausalito



Shirt: Levi’s Workwear Shirt (also seen in this post) / Shorts: J. Crew / Sandals: TOMS / Bag: Coach

Last Saturday, I had brunch with my close college friends in Sausalito, a picturesque city surrounded by hills, the bay, and quaint restaurants and cafes.   We went to Le Garage, a French Bistro near the heart of Sausalito and as someone I know said, “the best brunch this side of Paris!”.  As one of several people at the table who ordered the duck confit, I have to say this was one of the more gourmet brunches I’ve had in recent memory.  While waiting for our reservation, the docked houseboats and water were the perfect backdrop for some quick photos.  I highly recommend heading over to Marin County and visiting Sausalito if you get a chance!

Beach Vacation

Marc by Marc Jacobs twist jewelry / Metal ring / Matthew Williamson / Summer fedora
I’m heading off to Mexico tomorrow for the next few days!  It’s an impromptu getaway
(read: we literally bought the tickets earlier this week).  The only items on my wishlist
are plenty of pool time and tropical drinks with umbrellas.  Not asking too much, right?
Hope this outfit inspires you to jump on a beach vacation for yourself! Thanks for reading!
