I have another exciting piece of news for you, right now I'm working on another amazing GIVEWAWAY which will begin in a little less than 2 weeks. So, stay tuned for more details:)

As you can see, I continue to obsess over my new woven leather flats, this time I decided to pair them with yet another one of my current favorites, a silk Eastern inspired print dress from Winter Kate. What do I love about it so much? Um, ... everything! The colors, print, fabric and style all come together to create a perfect summer dress. Dress it up or down, it's really one of those uber versatile items I love so much! Have a feeling this one is definitely going to be in constant rotation!

Back to my favorite bold color palette! Not that it's been long since I wore bright colors, but it feels like lately I am wearing a lot more black and soft hues than usual. Really, today's outfit started from these strappy bright yellow sandals. I've been looking for a pair of flat sandals just like these for a while now. My poor feet deserve a break from the sky-high heels I normally like to wear. Well, so glad I found these, not only are they super comfortable, they are absolutely gorgeous! Love the combination of braided leather straps and bright sunny yellow.

Black chiffon maxi dress with side cutouts via Flirtcatalog | Going Platinum embellished flats via Caroline Cree | House of Harlow etched stack cuff & pyramid wrap ring, Low Luv horse bit and coin bracelet via GlamhouseSEPHORA OPI nailpolish in "Iris I Was Thinner"

Perfect day, perfect place, perfect dress.... I think if I could spend the rest of my life on the beach, I would. Nothing I love more than the sound of the waves and sand between my toes... Oh, and watching surfers ride the waves! Always wanted to learn, but haven't yet, oh well, perhaps some day...

Since Emil and I had dinner plans, I took a break from my usual beach uniform - shorts, flip-flops, a spaghetti-strapped top and a pair of oversized sunnies. California sun is not joke:) Instead I opted for this flowy chiffon dress and a pair of metallic flats. Dressing up a bit is appropriate, um... always!

Signature stretch color skinny jeans in 'Surf the Web" via Bebe | White Evil Eye scarf via Otrera | Zara Heels | Zadig & Voltaire small shala daim bagSando silk blouse - similar here & here | House of Harlow etched stack cuff  & pyramid wrap ring via Glamhouse | ASOS spike stretch bracelet

Perfect pair of skinny denim is not so easy to find. Too short, too low or so high-waisted, I feel like I'm a few inches shy of wearing overalls - there are so many ways skinny jeans can go wrong! Which is why I love these jeans so much. Made from  incredibly soft cotton, they feel and fit like a dream! Added bonus, they come in a variety of perfect Summer hues, this cobalt probably being my favorite one. Although, I am crushing on the yellow ones as well....

If you visit my blog regularly, you know, for me it's all about color. I love to pair vibrant yet complimentary shades, like this blue and peach. To balance this bright pairing, I kept my accessories pretty neutral and opted for a pair of soft blush rose-gold strappy heels and a pale rose suede bag with matching rose gold scull turn-lock. Oh, and I am also completely crazy about this scarf at the moment, so I pretty much wear it with everything. How sweet are the tiny evil eye charms on the corners! What can I say, it's all in the details...
