The Joys Of Summer

1024 683 Melissa Mayer

What do you think of when you think of summer? We think of lighter schedules, more downtime, longer days, sweet memories, and relaxed vibes. The joys of summer are like no other- simple, fun, and relaxing. Growing up, summer is greatly looked forward to in anticipation as a break from school and basically a season-long vacation.

As an adult, summer is different, but we still have that lighthearted-summer-feeling in our hearts. Even though work continues throughout the week, summer nights are a special thing. When people are in summer mode, they are definitely in the mood to hang out more, which makes us think of summer as a season of socializing- how fun!

There is nothing like the feeling of summer sunshine on your skin; it is refreshing and warming to the soul! Let’s hold on to the childhood memories of fresh squeezed lemonade, running in the sprinkler, and eating chunks of watermelon as we build new summer memories as adults; ones that include late nights with friends, beach escapes, dining al fresco and so much more. xx

May Mood

Our May mood when it comes to style is all about shades of white- ivory, cream, and everything in between. With summer around the corner, the fresh, light, and carefree color is calling our name. An all-white outfit is so versatile and the pieces on their own can easily be mixed and matched with other items in your wardrobe. Traveling this summer? Timeless pieces in white are the way to go- light sweaters, white denim, bone color leather slides, etc. Scroll down for links to the items below.

Spring Style Mood

1024 683 Melissa Mayer

Spring can be a tricky time of year with rainy days and cooler-than-expected temperatures, especially on the East Coast! However, once the sun is out, temps warm up, and summer is on the horizon, our spring style mood definitely heats up. Lo is loving two-piece sets (see below) + sunnies that make a statement. Wide leg crops, embellished sandals, and the modern Americana palette of red, white, and blue totally have her heart. For me, I am loving the classic combination of black + white as always, plus denim skirts, the bold color of red, easy sundresses, and two-piece sets as well. Lo and I are both fans of fedoras and wide brim hats, so we will definitely be reaching for those as we continue spring and go into summer. Bonus, hats also help with sun protection, so wearing one is a definite win-win. For more tips on staying safe in the sun, read this.

Ragdoll LA

1024 683 Lauren Kennedy

I am just going to lay it all out there – I live for sweats, cozy tees, and oversized sweatshirts. My parents literally had to limit my sweat pant purchases growing up because I seemed to fall in love with every pair I saw. Even to this day, when I walk through our front door, I am in comfy clothes faster than anything, with a candle lit and a cup of Sakara tea by my side. With all of this said, my excitement when relaxing ensembles were deemed appropriate for public appearance was on another level.

I love when random decisions turn into the best realizations. My parents were in town last month, and we ran into Kreation on 3rd Street for a juice and popped into a store called Ragdoll. My mom and I were immediately lost in the effortless essentials – the vintage sweatshirts, the most perfect puffy sweaters, and the casual tees. The lovely founder and designer, Lisa Larson, came out for a quick visit, which made me feel even more appreciation for the brand.

I have so much respect for family owned businesses, and I love Lisa’s story and how she describes her brand : “Just like me, Ragdoll is a mix of European chic and slouchy Los Angeles lifestyle. From LA I like the very casual way you dress, and from Europe I love the aesthetic and colors. I’m a Ragdoll. I like to dressy classy with a touch of sexy, vintage, and rock ‘n’ roll.”

I couldn’t help but leave the store with two sweatsuits; the blush pink sweatshirt and track pants might be my favorite, and I couldn’t leave without the classic black sweats and coordinating pullover. They are perfect for travel days, running errands around bustling LA, and they are oh so perfect for a cozy night in lounging on the couch with takeout food watching This Is Us.



Best Pair of Black Denim Under $100

800 468 Melissa Mayer

Black denim is always in constant rotation for me. I love how a pair of black skinnies can be dressed up or down and styled so many different ways. I am so confident in these jeans (c/o) that I have deemed them the best pair of black denim under $100. They fit like a dream, are so comfortable, have the perfectly placed knee slits, are ankle length, and can be worn with all shoe types from sneaks to heels. Abercrombie is the company responsible for making these amazing jeans and the price point is truly incredible. Check them out if you are in the market for a new pair of black denim and below is style inspo! xo
