Let’s all thank the ocean for a few things, shall we?

It makes us feel really really small. Which is always a good thing.
It can humble us with the crash of a wave, even the really small ones.
It can inspire us in so many ways, with such little effort.
…and it leaves us all salty, refreshed, and ready to dive in for more as much as possible.

So, when was the last time you spent some time in the big blue sea? Warning: The side effects will do your mind and body a whole bunch of good.

We are so lucky to live in a place where we have access to so many talented and creative designers. I love that I can constantly assemble outfits that consist of stunning pieces all from the different brands around us. It seems like every season various companies all design at least one piece I can’t live without. This outfit is a killer mixture full of all the best essentials. These skinny denim pants have a distressed look to them adding a little tough girl vibe to your look. They were perfectly paired with a graphic crop tank and an army vest that simply makes any outfit look combat ready. As we all know shoes are everything… I usually create a whole outfit based on a single pair of shoes! These white boots designed by the lovely Ascot Friday and the awesome Matisse ladies will be my year round wardrobe staple as well as my go-to boots for the upcoming festival season.
