Dolores Park Bow Ho Playground-1

My outfits are easily categorized as feminine and girly. However, sometimes in the summer I like to take a break from my typical dresses and wear carefree shorts. I love this pair because they are a soft material and have a clean front. This makes them super easy to dress up for a day out. I like to wear them with accessories like bracelets and headbands, just to maintain some of my classic girlie style. How have you been wearing shorts this summer?

Breakfast Quinoa

I love this breakfast quinoa recipe from Martha Stewart! It is healthy and uses simple, easy to find ingredients. I am usually not a huge fan of quinoa, but I love this breakfast rendition with blueberries, cinnamon, and a pinch of brown sugar.  I made a batch for my family and they loved it! I put extra toppings on our dining table so people could add more blueberries etc. The recipe is easy to follow and produces a great product. I believe this to be the perfect breakfast meal for summer when berries are in season and when simple cooking is a necessity. Comment bellow and tell me your favorite summer breakfast!

By Way of California

As a Bay Area girl, summer has always meant fog on the horizon and wind in my hair. It means sleepy mornings, North Faces in San Francisco and cold beachy towns. I love the look of the antique white dress for a cold summer. It hints at the season without being too obvious- a loud floral patterns would look out of place in the fog. Navy compliments the Pacific for days at the beach. I also love the look of this necklace. It has a natural look as if it was made from found objects. It provides a nice polished look without seeming too done-up.
