Summer Ready Style Post by Guest Blogger, Leah.

With summer almost here, it’s about time to find a pair of denim cutoffs that you love and that fit you perfectly. I love these Element shorts because not only are they super flattering, but they have little unique flower details on the front.  I brought mine to the beach to slip on over my one piece. I’d also pair them with some converse high tops and a crop top – perfect for this crazy hot weather. When you’re always hopping from beach to beach like me, a fun pair of denim shorts is a necessity!

West Coastin’ | Encinitas A Series On Sand + Sun with Guest Blogger Leah.

When I saw the heat wave that was heading our way this week I immediately tried to plan a trip down south to enjoy it. Mid-week day trips are the best especially when the waves are epic and the air is 90 degrees. I spent a day down in Encinitas enjoying the waves, weather, and hippie vibes. Other than a bikini and board I packed my new favorite romper. It was perfect for slipping into after being in the water all day and fun to wear out while thrifting and eating lots of vegan food. Sometimes getting out even if for only a day makes the week that much better and easier to get through.

The Essentials Style Post by Guest Blogger, Leah.

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.

Overall Daze Style Post by Guest Blogger, Leah.

I love overalls, I could live and sleep in overalls. There is nothing better than when I find a pair of great overalls that look even better on me than they do hanging on the rack. It doesn’t matter which brand, where they came from, or how old they are, they just have to fit me like they were designed just for me. Not only are these overalls the perfect fit, but they are jungle print. If you know me, I do not wander far from loud, fun prints. So my favorite print combined with my deep love for overalls, makes for a match made in outfit heaven. The great thing about overalls is, unlike dresses and skirts, you can jump and run around in them. These overalls brought out my inner tomboy. I completed my laid back look with a matching backwards hat and dreams of climbing around a lush jungle. Tie on some converse and you’ll be back in grade school, only this time you’ll be cooler. If you really want to get a little wild, I sometimes pair these overalls with a leopard coat. While that may sound too wild for some, my excuse has been that both prints are “jungle theme” that counts for something right?
