Last month, I visited the Warby Parker store in Venice to pick out a new pair of glasses. My old pair had broke so I decided it was the perfect opportunity to try out a new brand of eyewear. I’ve seen Warby Parker online for a while. They’ve got that hipster look going on that I love so much. Warby Parker is within my budget and has a brick and mortar location within walking distance of my apartment, so it only made sense for me to try it out.
As a book lover (who doesn’t read nearly enough), I love that the stores are made to look like bookstores. It makes the idea of picking out glasses more fun. It felt less medical.
I ended up going with the Wilkie glasses in Greystone and I love them.
I thought it would be fun to post some of my favorite summer outfits. I feel very ME in each of these outfits. They remind me of what I used to like wearing as a kid. I’ve always liked combining ~girly~ clothes with practical and comfortable choices like sneakers and hats. I’ve actually worn each of these outfits recently, so I named them after what was happening at the time.

Hey guys! After reshooting pretty much all the photos I had on Poshmark, I feel ready to share it on here.
I’m trying to downsize and make a little extra cash, so I figured putting clothes on Poshmark would be a good way to go. It turns out that’s it’s also a lot of fun! I like scrolling through my feed and seeing what other people are posting.
My closet is definitely feminine and a little flirty. Think Zoey Deschanel style, with a retail worker budget. You’ll find dresses, skirts, tops, bottoms, jewelry and accessories. I’ll be adding new items soon, so if it seems like your style, be sure to check back!

I haven’t been taking many pictures with my camera or phone lately, but I really need to do that. So this month instead of sharing photos from Instagram, they’re all from when my guy and I went to a pumpkin patch. That signals the start of fall to me.

My boyfriend recently went from a contract position at his job to being a permanent employee. We’ve been hoping for this for a while and he’s been working hard to make it happen. Naturally, we had to celebrate. On Saturday, we went back to our college, Cal Poly Pomona, for its annual Pumpkin Festival. Then we headed over to one of our favorite date night hangouts, the city of Claremont. It’s a college town, unlike Pomona. You see, Pomona has one college and it’s mostly a commuter school. Claremont has three colleges within walking distance of many shops. It’s nickname “The city of trees and PHDs” rings true.
We ended up going to a Spanish restaurant in town and ordering some delicious tapas. It was nice to have a long, relaxing dinner and catch up. Of course, we talk every day, but this really gave us an opportunity to bring up things we had forgotten about mentioning.

Recently, I cleaned out my closet and got rid of a some shoes that were way past their prime, including a pair of black booties, two pairs of flats and a few sandals. The upside? I’m in the market for new shoes!
In summer (and these fall heats waves we get California), I tend to go barefoot around the house and wear flip flops outside. I’m excited for cooler weather because it means showing off great footwear. Although I wish that could include strappy things, I’ve decided that comfort is key for me. I don’t care how cute a shoe is if it means getting foot cramps after an hour of wear. Comfy, cute and casual are what I’m looking for now. Most of these are out of my price range, but it’s always fun to window shop. I got the slippers and tan pumps shown above and just had to share them.

Sadly, summer is ending. I’m going to try and make one last trip to the beach before it does. How about you? I put together a list of beach essentials, along with some tips, over on the blog Antiques & Coffee. A fellow California girl, Sally-Jean runs the fashion and lifestyle blog. Check it out.
Before this two week Boise trip, we hadn’t been apart for more than a week. Maybe not even that long. The longest I can think of is when he went to SXSW earlier this year. I probably saw him the weekend before and soon after. I have a terrible memory. Can you tell? I know couples have survived a lot worse. I don’t mean to complain. But man, I’m going to miss him just for a bit.
