Why are palm trees so beautiful?! I am so obsessed with them.
I love them so much that I want a tattoo of one... 
I took these shots on a little weekend getaway to Palm Springs, and whenever I look at them it makes me happy. Maybe its the way they are so high up that nothing can touch them, or the way they sort of just sway in the wind and go with the flow, but whatever it is, these babes make me smile.
Going with the flow is something I am trying to work on right now, and the way these trees stay strong even in the midst of a storm is so beautiful.
Life is tough sometimes, but we can get through it.

P.S. Anybody still in summer mode? I so am.

sweater / shirt / necklace / bracelet

Happy Saturday! Just a simple, cozy style post for you all today! I really want to get into the "pastels during winter" trend this year, so I like the mix of lavender and grey with this look. It's simple and cozy, and that's pretty all I need!

Check out my social media links (if you want!)


(What an original title, I know)

So, I made an online store! Woohoo! Check it out for handmade, beach-inspired accessories and gently/never worn clothes straight from my closet. I will be adding more products shortly, but I hope you will give the store a visit in the meantime and let me know what you think!

Summer Don't Leave Me

So, I am well aware that it is technically fall, but I am still trying to hold on to summer. Right now as I type, it is currently partly cloudy and a bit chilly outside, and I am missing my sweet summer weather. I know I am extremely spoiled by beautiful California weather about 99% of the time, but let me be honest- fall/winter is not my favorite time of year. In a way I am (secretly) thankful for the colder weather because it makes me appreciate the warmth so much more. Buuuuutttttttt, I still love summer more than anything. ;) I will admit that I do love being cozy and sipping on a hot drink, but I am definitely not one of those people who loves pumpkin spice lattes and the rain - I actually despise the rain. 
Now, that was awfully negative wasn't it? haha There are things I do enjoy about fall/winter, I promise! I like the holidays, comfy layers, hot tea, yummy food, festive activities, and more things that I cannot think about at the moment. haha! With all of that being said, I am going to make the best of the cooler weather and still try to make it to the beach as much as I can! 

Leave me a comment below and let's chat!

Shades of Beige

hat // sweater // romper // boots

Happy Sunday! Just a quick style post for today! I already posted this look on Instagram, but I thought I would post it here with more outfit details! (all pieces are linked above) I love outfits that are made up of the same color family, but have different textures. This is the perfect outfit for California fall weather, which I absolutely love. Sunshine all the time- I think yes!

Style Recap

(you can find links to everything I'm wearing on my FPMe account!)

Happy wednesday :) While I sit at home anxiously awaiting the delivery of my new iphone 6, I thought I would share with you all some of my favorite looks I styled at work over the past few months! It's pretty cool that I get to play dress-up and pretend I'm a model at work. That being said, I think I would hate being an actual model as my profession. I wish you could see the outtakes of these photos....
I'll spare you ;)

Sundays are rad. 
(and so are these surf leggings from Salt Gypsy. I'm obsessed and want every pair.)
Yesterday my dad and I woke up before sunrise to hit the beach and surf before the water got too crowded. The whole time I was in the water I couldn't stop thinking about how totally blessed I am to live in California, where beach-going can be a regular thing pretty much all year round. After a few hours we met up with my sister in Santa Barbara for lunch and more beach time. It's fun having a family who is as beach-obsessed as I am :)
Not every sunday is like this, but the ones that are, are my favorite.

Hello Again

A little Instagram recap of my summer...
I'm back after a summer off of blogging! This summer was spent enjoying my favorite thing in the entire world- the beach. I decided to take the summer off from blogging, go on some adventures, and figure out the direction that I wanted to go with the site. I came to the conclusion that I do not want to be a "fashion blogger", which was my original intention for this blog when I started it about 3 years ago. I just want to blog about whatever I please, whether that be style, beauty, food, diy, faith, or my love of the beach! So, I hope you enjoy this little random space of mine because I love sharing life with you all!
