One afternoon during our Mexican adventure, we drove into the incredibly charming town of Sayulita. Adorable cafes and heladerías lined the cobblestone streets, intermittently dotted with handicraft, textile and artwork shops. The town has a decorative heart theme, which of course ups their cuteness factor tenfold. Coincidentally, local folk textiles use pom-poms on purses and pillows, so my Angie Pom Clutch fit right in!

If you thought a pegged leg was only applicable to acid wash denim or overalls, it’s time to re-think your folding strategy. A simple peg leg fold turns summer beach pants into fall’s favorite harem pants. Pair your newly tapered pant with a pair of booties and a cropped jacket for the full effect.

Hola! I spent the last ten days surfing with my family in Mexico, in a beautiful area called Punta Mita. The town itself is pretty small, with an oceanfront main drag that includes a handful of restaurants and a tiny harbor that is home to about 20 ponga boats. There are several surf spots nearby, including pumping reef breaks and peeling point breaks. Because the surf was so plentiful, and September is off-season, we never ran into any crowds! The fish tacos were AMAZING, and the weather was gorgeous the entire trip, with clear skies and 90 degree turquoise waters. Viva México!

One of my wardrobe staples is a simple pair of denim cutoffs and a basic tee. I could put it on daily. But there are days where I crave that same staple feeling but with a little dash of crazy and daring. My new favorite wild combo consists of these tribal printed shorts and embellished crop top. I love mixing prints. Especially contrasting jungle ones! This combo is still a comfy pair of shorts and a perfect fit tee, but with a more adventurous attitude. I’ve been adding a denim jacket around my waist, carrying this fun neoprene clutch, and wearing some boots to complete this expressive look. Whether I’m climbing through a jungle in tropical paradise or tackling a day at work, this wild outfit will give you the necessary power to go at everything with a bang! Stay comfortable but don’t be afraid to get crazy with your basics and mix some prints!
