I recently returned from a quick trip to LA and, although there were brief rainy and cloudy periods, I couldn't have been happier for a few days in the sunshine state. Despite that we here in Vancouver are expecting even more snow (what is happening!?), it was a nice reminder that nicer weather does exist and is on the not-so-distant horizon.
I've typically been more of a pared-down, basics kind of dresser but the summer colours of California & a more vibrant vibe have been calling my name. I purchased a Realisation Paris dress from Mine & Yours awhile back, a beautiful silk wrap dress in a fun daisy print, and took it with me to LA. It felt fantastic amidst the retro vibe of Los Angeles (I wish I'd been there in the 50's and 60's) and has inspired me to start thinking about my summer wardrobe.
We have a Naven x NBD sample pop in the store (here 'til Sunday) and the collection is filled with cheery hues and tons of prints to brighten up this grey and rainy day; swing by and check it out! I've included some inspiration photos that encapsulate my idea of California dreaming. The top photo is of me in my Realisation Paris dress, strolling along Melrose! Cheers xx.
