Find Me At The Flea Style Post by Guest Blogger, Leah.

Not very many things motivate me enough to get out of bed early on a Sunday morning, in fact I think the flea market is the only event I’m all for waking up early on the weekend. This past weekend I wandered around the Long Beach antique market in search for unique pieces to add to my home and wardrobe. I fall in love each time with everything from old worn top hats to mid century furniture. The market is a great way to spend a summer day – but be careful because it is also a very easy and fun way to spend lots of money! The sun always seems to beat down on the crowds as they meander through the aisles, so I wore a hat and kimono to keep the sun off. A simple pair of denim shorts, tank, and sandals made me stay both comfortable and stylish as I walked around. With an outfit as trendy and eclectic as the setting, and a variety of vintage goods, quirky treasures, it was impossible to not have a good time. So next Sunday wake up early and I promise you that the flea market will not disappoint!

Ready for the 4th Style Post by Guest Blogger, Leah.

As soon as the 4th of July comes around I am always too busy at the beach, buying fireworks, and finding a way to stop by every fun party happening in that one day, that the choosing of my outfit is pushed back until the night before. I am always a bit disappointed afterwards, wishing I would’ve put more style into my fourth outfit. This year I was determined to get a head start on my 4th of July getup and pick clothes that are not only stars and stripes, but can be worn for all the summer adventures to come soon after.

Pants On Fire Style Post by Guest Blogger, Leah.

Tie Dye Pants
We’ve all been caught buying exercise pants with no intent to actually exert any energy while wearing them. I’ll go all day wearing my yoga pants because they are comfortable, but can’t even remember the last time I stepped into a yoga studio, sad I know! Maybe it’s just me, but I find myself shopping in the exercise section for cute pants that I can wear out and be comfortable in all day. Well instead of continuing this habit and feeling guilty at the end of the day as if I am not letting my exercise pants live to their full potential – I can buy cute gypsy pants like these. Comfy and cool go together and these pants make life a lot easier. You can wear them with running shoes or pair them with awesome high tops. So save the yoga pants for outings that end with “namaste” and invest in a stylish pair of gypsy pants for your comfy days this summer!

Endless Prints Style Post by Guest Blogger, Leah.

As I’ve gotten to peek into all the summer collections headed our way, it’s obvious that we all are embracing prints a little more this season. From animal prints that remind you of African safaris, to vintage Hawaiian prints and colors that make you wish you had a mango and coconut in hand, there’s a print for everyone. And if fun prints don’t make you happy, then pom pom shorts will… but the combo of these two screams salty hair, sand everywhere, and no worries or a care. I wore mine with a crop top and a simple necklace. They are a perfect summer staple and a good pair of shorts to own and mix in with all the denim cutoffs I will be wearing this summer. Pom pom shorts and happy prints make me smile.
