You’d think after living in an ice state like Michigan and then experiencing a full year in California, this cooler weather in SoCal would be a breeze- but I’m weirded out! To be busting out pants instead of dresses and skirts is so strange, but I think it’s because the transition was so abrupt. Like, two weeks ago we were in triple digit weather and a week later it’s high 70s. But hey, as long as I’m away from actual snow, I’m good!

During the Rosewood Annual Tea Party, I met a woman named Lalaine who mentioned her and her husband have a wholesale shop in the heart of Fashion District in LA. We were in communication ever since and when I went down there to get to know their business and a possible partnership, I didn’t expect to hear their hearts and testimonies of their lives since they’ve been here in the States as immigrants from the Philippines. I was amazed.

Dominican Republic, 2009
In the next eight weeks, I’ll be collaborating with Harrison’s Fine Caribbean Jewelers by sharing my experiences in one of my favorite places in the world- the Dominican Republic! The DR holds dear to my heart for a number of reasons, a few of them being “firsts.” It was the first country I had my first missions trip abroad and the first place I dipped my feet into the fashion industry as a visual merchandise intern at Harrison’s.

At last, we are finally seeing full weeks of beautiful sunshine without the surprise of snow in the forecast (knock on wood). Bikers accessorized with leather, convertibles with their tops down, grills are dusted off, and a slew of grad parties, picnics, outdoor concerts, and road trips are already scheduled in for the coming months. Yep, summer is a’comin’! And ladies, what’s a summer without a good ol’ summer dress?
I love, love, love dresses with a basic silhouette like this because it’s so easy to get up and go with especially when its fabric is convenient and you don’t have to iron it. And while this dress clearly looks like it’s from the ’90s, bright colors with floral NEVER ceases to get me all giddy inside. Whether you’re a heels or sandals kinda girl or hair down or twisted in a quick bun, it’s so simple to look like you actually put in the effort, and let’s be honest, with this kind of weather, all we want is to be outside, right?!
Remember, summer does not have to equal immodesty! It’s humid and we get sweaty. I get it. But it is possible to still look hot when it’s HOT (hah). Take a look at Liz’s post from her blog Downtown Demure. She and 12 other modest fashion bloggers give their tips on how to look cool while staying cool when it’s the temperatures are anything but.
Have a great weekend!
