As I am writing this rainy blog post, I am lucky enough to be in sunny California! But back in New York it has been raining cats and dogs. On most rainy days, I always go towards fun prints and colors to lift my mood a bit. I decided to wear this matching top and skirt the other day to our friends surprise birthday party. It was the perfect look for the night!

This printed set is by (of course) Kling.  So many things that they make are right up my alley and I have shared so many of their designs on here! I paired this set with a heart bag from Boohoo and simple patient ankle strap flats to keep the look vintage looking. Luckily by the time I left for the night it had stopped raining and these shoes wouldn’t get ruined!

Sunny blog posts from Cali heading your way! I also started shooting footage for my very first Youtube video as well!

Typically I try to stick to solid colors since the socks draw so much attention,but occasionally patterns work too! When I got these flower socks, I knew I had to wear them with my Miu Miu loafers I thrifted recently. They were dying to be paired!

These flower patterned socks are from Bergieswhich is a super amazing sock site! I mean, seriously they have a million pairs of all different lengths and fabrics! I even got some thigh highs. When I got these, I knew I would want to wear them with loafers because that’s always my go-to shoe for socks. I decided to go with this bright red dress by Pepaloves and put a anchor sweater over it because it’s been a tad chilly lately! A perfect outfit for Memorial Day today!

I’ll be hanging out with some friends today having fun and I hope you get to be with friends or family today as well!

We had noticed this motel and didn’t realize it was apart of the museum at first. It turns out it was the motel Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated at and afterwards business went down and the motel went out of business. The city bought the motel and now it is literally attached to the museum. There’s so much history to learn there,but also because they still have the motel there it really takes you back to the horrific scene. It’s odd that my photos can look so cheery at a place where a terrible event occurred. I wanted to take a moment to state the history of what’s happened behind these photos. A great link to learn even more about Martin Luther King Jr. history is here. I can certainly say Memphis has a lot of history, both painful and joyful, which is something that made this trip extra special.

On a completely different note, how’s this gingham backpack with gingham sunnies combo? This is a new favorite look of mine (and not shockingly so, since it’s red, white, and blue!). I have a really hard time finding shorts I love but you GUYS I have gotten very lucky lately with so many! These ones are MissGuided and I really dig them. I think they can be worn in a very 50’s way (as I did here) but also Boho and modern. I wore an American Apparel denim shirt underneath with this Kling anchor sweater over it! Good for a 70 degree day.

I recently found these Mink Pink sunnies at Crossroads trading and had to have them! They are just too good and a perfect find! I’ve been wearing them a lot lately.

So sorry for the delay for a few days there with posting! My Aunt and cousin were in town and I was so busy spending time with them and having so much fun I got a little sidetrack! But I have lots of catching up to do!
