Cropped Secrets

Crop Tanktop + White Jeans via @lucismorselsCroptops are all the rage these days. I think they're fun but baring my midriff isn't too appealing unless I'm poolside or on the beach. Boxy crop tops, however, are a major exception for me, and luckily, they're really popular this year.These boxy shirts are shorter, but not so short or so tight that you're really showing much skin. I like to think of them as a shirt designed to show my of my belt! Now I just have to remember to always wear a belt!

Fashion Friday: Summer Hats

It got warm in southern California this week! We didn't experience triple-degree days, but I wouldn't have to travel too far to feel the heat. With all this hot weather, we're heading to the beach with our friends and their fur children (dogs) tomorrow. On Sunday I'm heading up to northern California. So much to do this weekend amidst the fun. I've been a bit slow moving this week, so I'm hoping some sleep and relaxation will snap me out of it! My weekend already sounds too busy, doesn't it?

I've been a slow converts to hats. I love them, I'm adjusting to how they look on me and then what to do with my hair when I do decide to wear a hat. I usually prefer to throw on a hat with dry hair and a side braid or bun seems to work best for me! I can easily see myself in the floral scarf hat or the black and chevron straw hat, but the rest of these are so fun, I might need to start imagining myself in them as well.

Sweet + Spicy Grilled Cantaloupe

Sweet + Spicy Grilled Cantaloupe with smoked paprika & honey via @lucismorselsThe same day that we revamped our porch with succulents, we bought a small gas grill for our small outdoor area. Besides summertime cravings for bbq flavors, we wanted a grill to help mix up our dinner options and keep us eating in more often. And to be totally honest, I was excited about pushing some of the cooking off to my guy!
