Love-Its!

I haven’t done one of these in forever! Just a quick little look into my life and the things I’ve been loving recently.

State of Grace

IMG_2571I recently found myself with some free time during an afternoon in San Francisco. So, I did what any sensible style blogger would do—I acted like a tourist in my own city and took some blog pictured in one of my favorite areas of the city, Union Square. This is one of my go-to outfits during spring. I love this dress and how easy it is to dress up with accessories. Since it’s finally spring, I had to add some mint and lavender jewelry pieces! I toted around my favorite kate spade new york carry-all (perfect for days in the city when I need to bring a lot of things). I wore a pair of chic and comfortable snakeskin flats. The outfit comes together in simple, understated elegance— it puts me in a “State of Grace”.

Spring in the Desert

IMG_1094

I got this Free People dress as a Christmas gift and it instantly became one of my favorites. To start with it is a gorgeous shade of plum which remains versatile for most seasons. I also love the lace pattern, it makes the dress feel very feminine. The dress has an uneven hem line which invokes a more bohemian feel. My style tends to lean more to the preppy side of things, but I like dipping my toes into boho styles. This dress offers an easy way to do this, because it still remains very girlie and polished, yet it has very slight hints at hipster styles. One thing for certain is that I adore this dress and will continue to wear it until we reach summer.
