I live in San Diego where it’s basically summer all year round. But there has been a slight increase in temperatures recently which has given me license to start wearing all things summer! Today I’m sharing my summer fashion favorites (and a lipstick).
This weekend was full of good food, friends, and sunshine. What’s not to love?
We kicked things off on Friday evening with dinner at Karl Strauss Brewery. We were joined by several of our work friends, their spouses, and their babies. When craft beer and delicious appetizers are involved, you know I’m a happy lady.
I cook brussels sprouts at home a lot. But this app inspired me to step up my game! These roasted sprouts were topped with a bit of feta cheese and a balsamic glaze. They were a great compliment to my glass of Red Trolley Ale.
Saturday morning was slightly stressful. I had to get my blood drawn, but only a couple labs in San Diego were open. The first one I went to wasn’t open, even though the website said otherwise, so I had to drive to another location half an hour away. After an hour-long wait I got the blood drawn. Needless to say, I was a little fried after that. But a trip to the farmers market made it all better!
I love this shirt Matt recently got! Very “Don Draper at a resort” type of vibe.
After perusing the stalls we opted for some sandwiches and wraps for lunch. The Lip Smacking Eats stand also made a delicious tropical lemonade! It really made me feel like summer is here.
I love how different the stalls are at the market near our place. One man sells various pickled veg and tapanades that remind me so much of the vendors in Paris. Another woman, who happened to be from London, had an entire stand filled with cakes and pastries. I couldn’t resist a peach cobbler scone. I controlled myself to one but after enjoying it later, I really wished I’d nabbed at least three!
There’s something about the transition between seasons that makes fashion exciting! You get to pick and choose items from the season you’re in and the one you’re heading towards — creating fresh looks with items you thought you were done with.
Today I wanted to share a few looks I’ve been wearing a lot recently as we say goodbye to spring and hello to summer.
The latest shoe trend to hit the streets is something every fashionista can be enthusiastic about: sneakers! Pull those Adidas, Nikes, Reeboks and Pumas out of your closets, ladies, because they aren’t just for the gym anymore; sneakers just got a serious makeover. Here’s the scoop on this spring’s sneak attack!
Why Should We Embrace The Sneaker Trend?
Above and beyond the fact that they’re trendy, wearing sneakers gives our tootsies the reprieve they need. Sneakers seamlessly marry style with comfort.
Who Can Wear Them?
Uh, hello…everyone! And we mean that in the literal sense: every age, body shape, and style of fashionista can find a pair of sneakers that fits into her wardrobe.
Are you a girly girl? Try a pair of bright sneakers with a tulle skirt!
Although we’d like to say “everywhere,” the reality is that sneakers are still considered inappropriate for many office environments. Be sure to check with your place of employment before wearing sneakers for a full day of work. You CAN, however, wear them for a stylish commute!
And otherwise, the options are endless.
