Ray-Ban Sunglasses, J.Crew Shirt, ASOS Skirt, Steve Madden Sandals, Cambridge Satchel Co Bag, World Market Necklace

I just love summers and the colorful and vibrant colors you can wear before fall comes. This ASOS skirt just screams summer and it’s one of my favorite to throw on with a tee and pair of sandals!

And on another note, I changed the theme around on the site and gave it a little facelift – what do you think?

Berry Tart

Baked goods are always a favorite of mine to make. One I had never tempted before was a berry tart (since you need the special pan). So when I bought one that was on sale a year ago from Williams Sonoma, I was still hesitant to try it out because it just seemed so complicated. You know those beautiful berry tarts you see in bakeries that put everything else to shame! But I found this recipe on their website and decided I’d try it out. It was a little daunting to make the crust and then the filling. And then once it was finished, the through that came to mind was it was going to be one of those “it looks better than it tastes”. But it turned out to be absolutely delicious! The crust was perfect, the filling was sweet, and the fruit were the perfect addition!

Around Wine Country

Ray-Ban Sunnies, Old Navy Blouse, Marshalls Shorts, Jack Purcell for Converse Sneakers, Rebecca Minkoff Bag

While in wine country, it was so warm and sunny (compared to the cooler temps we experienced in San Francisco and Carmel). So I opted for a pair of fun striped shorts and a simple white blouse with comfortable sneakers since we would be walking around for a few hours. Needless to say, it was comfortable while being outside and inside while staying stylish. And on another note, I am embarrassed to say that these Jack Purcell for Converse are my first pair ever but they are my absolute favorite! They go with just about everything and now they are my go to pair for sneakers.

I’m kind of obsessed over pompom sandals for summer. They are so cute and fun compared to the ordinary summer sandal and I’ve already bought two pair. The pairs I recommend are the Steve Madden OMMAHA and the Chinese Laundry. They are great with shorts, summer dresser, or skirts. But I’m very tempted by the other four options above.

1. Sam Edelman Gretchen Flat Sandals ~ $130.00
2. Steve Madden Pompom Flat Sandal ~ $79.95
3. Schutz Patricia Flat Sandals ~ $190.00
4. Steve Madden OMMAHA ~ $69.95
5. Loeffler Randall Saskia ~ $250.00
6. Chinese Laundry Posh Beaded Flat Sandal ~ $79.95
