Itching for Summer

The weather in Los Angeles lately has been just warm enough to have me dreaming of summer. I’m not pulling out all of my sundresses just yet, but you can bet I’ve been trolling my favorite online shops and daydreaming about dressing for warmer days.

One of the things I love most, most, most about summer is eating outside. Mr. Lovely and I have a standing lunch date every Friday, and pretty soon we’ll be able to eat al fresco in our shorts and sandals. I’m so anxious for it I found myself putting together some summery looks that will be just perfect for that first hot day.

Summer Outfit


Sunnies. Earrings. Top. Pink bracelet. White bracelet. Clutch. Shorts. Sandals. Nail polish.

Summer always brings out my inner hippie, so I’m all about the cutoff shorts. These are maybe a little more distressed than I’d usually wear but wouldn’t they be so comfy after a day at the beach? I also love to stack on the friendship bracelets during the summer — it’s a serious arm party. I love the thin knotted cord combined with touches of gold.

So what’s the weather where you are?! Is it still full-out winter, or do you see spring and summer starting to head your way? Are you as antsy to pull out your sandals as I am? xoxo

  1. DUDE I am so over winter. It’s only getting to mid-40 right now which is fine. Can’t be too hot for Marathon Monday!!! But as soon as I can put on sandals I am THERE. Disney vacation in May can’t come soon enough and I have my eye on a pair of heart-shaped sunnies for poolside adornment.

      Heart shaped sunnies are perfection.

    It’s been sunny this week, but it rained all last weekend. I’m so happy that the days are longer and brighter now. Summer always seems to bring out my hippie side, too! Cute selections! 🙂

      Yes! The longer days totally lift my spirits too.

  3. I am so jealous, Chicago weather has been such a tease – sunny one day and freezing the next! I can’t wait until outdoor dining is a regular thing!
