This is sort of an edgy sweet look, great for lunch or dinner on the weekend :) Of course the skirt can be dressed much more conservatively but I felt it would be fun to mix with a slightly sheer top.

Yesterday I went to San Francicsco for the Etsy Indie Emporium. It was a lot smaller than my friends and I expected and about zero food vendors! So we ended up at the Treasure Island Flea Market which was awesome. You can see bits and clips of my day on snapchat: hapatimee :)

I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend!!

I've had mixed feelings about my lighter hair but I must say it fits my boho/western looks rather well. I absolutely love suede booties as I feel they are the only shoes that can give you height but still look casual. I am also now on Snapchat (again - though I can't login to my original account) - username is "hapatimee"! 

Sad Tomorrowland was a total flop in my opinion and Mad Max was a bit too much. I still need to see the Avengers, Age of Adaline and can't wait for Jurassic Park! 

Have a lovely day!

Viva La Vida

This is my last post from Mallorca! Wearing head to toe Charlotte Russe. I thought this look was perfect for the beachy weather we had and couldn't resist walking along the coastline. The water was pretty cold but the air was so nice and warm. These pants are super duper comfortable and I have a feeling I'm going to be wearing this top a lot!!

Spring Fever

I've recently stumbled upon this amazing site called Shop Your Way which allows anyone to become a personal shopper! The way I look at their system, it is a real win - win. All you have to do is join the Shop Your Way community and acquire "clients" anyway you want - friends, family, social media, etc. They'll of course want to become your client once they realize you can help them save time and money even while the service is free. You suggest your favorites, introduce great deals and share any further knowledge you can! You win every time they make a purchase because you get commission! They "the clients" win because shopping earns them points which they can use to reduce the cost of their next purchase.

Dynamite Romper, Pietro NYC Bag, Dolce Vita Henlie Heels, Michael Kors Watch, Bebe Earrings, True Religion Jacket 

This gorgeous Dynamite romper is so comfy and chic! The teal color and silky material are synonymous with the warm nights of summer and floral terraces. I did however bring a jacket along since my boyfriend and I went out for dinner and the temps still drop in the evening here in Northern Cali. I unintentionally matched my shoes to my bag and was actually delighted when I noticed. 

I'm excited to let you know that Dynamite is holding an amazing giveaway! The first prize winner will get a new dress every month for a year, in addition to a $1000 Dynamite shopping spree and gets to guest post on the DYN Blog. Make sure you enter on Chictopia.com HERE!!! 

Have a beautiful day!

Morning Light

A lot of fun little contradictions going on with this Morning Light Fit and Flare dress from Haute74... like tweed and crochet? Longer, tapered hemline but open back and side boob action?  It's like mixing the office with summer... aka sitting on a hotel balcony in Hawaii while working on my laptop with a beautiful ocean view. (Note: I had the straps altered to be shorter/tighter for my size 34A chest.)

I am LOVING all of the sweet ripe fruits in season right now. Yesterday I bought organic fuji apples, strawberries, blueberries, nectarines, navel oranges, peaches and raspberries. Next I need to focus on my veggie shopping but for now I'm super happy eating fruit all day!

*BTW I did not further lighten my hair. Something about the lighting made me look way blonder!!*

Happy Wednesday!

Spring Stripes

I'm sorry I haven't been posting very much this month! It's always hard to keep up with the posts when I'm travelling but I also got sick as soon as I got back a few days ago. I was in complete denial but found I didn't have the will to do anything more than lay in bed and blow my nose. I'm finally feeling so much better (really great in fact) after a couple of 10 hour sleep filled nights (ah bliss). Did you know your body can only produce antibodies during your deepest sleep? [source] So ideally every time you catch a cold or are about to, just go snuggle up in your blankets and close those blinds for as long as you can manage!

This is just an easy spring/summer casual chic look. I just got this gorgeous Tory Burch bag (on sale now!!!) and want to wear it with everything. It has a beautiful texture to it and the cream color goes with more of my closet than I originally expected. Also a tip for denim shorts: if you want to wear longer, looser shorts like these without looking frumpy, heels are your best bet. It is always about balance and so if you are not interested in wearing heels, and shorts shorter than this are too scary - my advice is to opt for skirts and skinny jeans.

Have a lovely day!

Days Go By

We were so lucky this beach was literally right outside our window. It was emptiest in the evenings right before the sun set though I'm not sure why as the warm sun felt like a soft blanket and the waves seemed calmer...

I really love this Del Maar suit as the fun Latino-Australian print is both a unique and feminine blend of colors and prints. The extra flutter material under the bust is such a nice touch and created a flirtier silhouette. The Brazilian bottom had the perfect amount of coverage too.

One of the things that amazed me in Spain is how many people have their dogs off leash. Not just that they trust their dogs to stay close, but that the dogs do! Everywhere we went there was a cute little dog trailing along with the owner not too far away.

Have an amazing day!
