Happy Friday everyone!! My family and I are finally back from our week long summer vacation.
We had a fantastic time in Wisconsin and Minnesota. My husband's nephew just got married. To witness this moment was a bit strange. Because I've known him since he was in grade school. He was even the ring bearer at our wedding. But we are beyond happy for him and his bride. Ayden also got to celebrate his birthday with grandma and grandpa. Lucky kid!
The other part of our trip... We met my nephew for the very first time. He's going to be turning one in a couple of weeks and is just the cutest little guy. It's been forever since we've had a baby in the family. Those long lashes and chubby cheeks... I have a ton of photos to last a year. We also spent time with my family in Minnesota where Ayden had another birthday party. He got to hang out with his cousins and my parents cooked up all of our favorite meals. It was great!
I promised myself no work while on vacation--which is why this style inspiration is being posted now. A bit impromptu. We were in downtown LA for a design meeting and decided to capture these shots.
My outfit: I feel like I've been in stripes so much this summer. I don't think you can ever go wrong with navy and white. I went with a denim jacket for a classic combo. D'Orsay flats are such a great daytime option--chic and business at the same time. Unlike traditional flats, they seem to move with you and won't get too tight throughout the day. Again, I went with gold and silver accessories and a white bag to finish the look.
