crazy for layout - floral jeans
1. Paige Verdugo Ankle  in Flea Market Floral / 2. J.Crew Liberty Toothpick Jean in Tresco Floral / 3. Forever 21 Rose Print Skinny Jeans / 4.Gap 1969 Printed Legging Skimmer Jeans / 5. Hudson Krista Super Skinny Jeans (although not quite a traditional floral print, the pattern gave off more of an abstract flowery feel, which I thought was fresh and fun)
Floral denim has been around for a bit now, but it hasn’t seemed to go anywhere, which is fine by me. I love a good bold, flowery print and when paired with either a basic white v-neck or classic chambray button down, it’s the perfect go-to outfit for a sunny spring day.

Lately I’m finding that I’m very into shirts and sweatshirts with cheeky words or sayings on them. Case in point – this particular sweater, which caught my eye while browsing online at F21 last week. I think there is something about the contrast of the heather gray and cherry-orange red together that I love, or maybe it’s the bold, uppercase lettering that seems to be yelling “RELAX!” to anyone walking by. Whatever it might be, I still dig it. xo

This is definitely an edgier look than what I usually post, (quite the opposite of yesterday’s post!) but what’s the point of fashion if you can’t have a little ( or a lot) of fun with it, right? :) Hope your Wednesday is off to a great start! xo

I haven’t worn this whimsical skirt since this post back in 2011, but thanks to Helena who spotted this adorable version at an Anthropologie in Palm Beach, I was reminded of how much I love my own tulle skirt I bought at H&M years ago. I had recently sent it home to live at my parent’s house since I didn’t seem to be wearing it much, but after pulling it out from way back in the closet, I happily styled it up and had my very own Carrie Bradshaw moment. xo

After the pouring rain we experienced in Santa Barbara the other day, I finally woke up to the sun shining and birds chirping. We took advantage of the weather by exploring UCSB’s campus where my Mom went to college back in the day, then I met up with a couple of good friends for lunch downtown. Later on, back at the ranch, the light was so pretty, and with the evenings staying lighter longer it was the perfect time to photograph my new floral shorts and printed top I found at F21. Aren’t the little sailboats cute? xo

I’ll be honest, I’m a bit of a country music girl at heart, which means I am a sucker for sappy love songs with a slight twang. What can I say, this type of music gives me serious nostalgia, because after all, I did grow up in the Pacific Northwest during the 90s listening to 94.1. For those of you from Seattle that know that station and liked it…’nuff said.

Anyway, on a fashion note, it’s safe to say I like the occasional worn-in cowboy boot or the perfect gingham shirt – styled either traditionally or quirkily. But, I find that I always end up mixing that type of item in with an unexpected piece, like a white and black tuxedo blazer and a girly dress, in this case. Personally, it’s more of a challenge and it brings that stereotypical item out of its comfort zone, making it just that more fun and interesting. I guess when it comes to fashion, I am all about juxtaposition and keeping things continually interesting…so here’s to more of that in the new year! xo

Black can be so difficult to photograph, especially black on black, but if you look closely at this skirt, you will notice that the front has a cool cut out, making it short in the front and long in the back. I found this little gem while I was in London, but it’s also available online and I just saw it in the stores this past week. Oh Zara, you’ve done it again…
