Drove down to Carmel, CA to visit the overwhelmingly gorgeous beaches of 17 mile road. After that, we took a quick trip to the Monterey Fisherman’s Wharf to grab a bowl of clam chowder. Btw, if you ever find yourself in at the wharf, I recommend going to the Fisherman’s Grotto. It is hands down the best clam chowder you will ever have, ever.

Cafe Americano

“Tall Iced Americano, no room, two pumps classic.” That’s my daily go-to. Black is all I’ve been wearing lately, and I shamelessly prefer my outfits to match my coffee. Back in the day, I was once a blended coffee fanatic. Oh yeah, I was that “Venti Caramel Frappe” girl. “Caramel on the wall, please,” extra whip, give me the sugar, don’t hold the calories, and everything else in all it’s frappe glory. But I grew up, my taste buds with it, and naturally my need for sweets declined. Thank god for that because I’m sure my metabolism isn’t getting any faster.

“So, wtf is an Americano?” It’s expresso + water. What’s so good about it? Easy; it’s uncomplicated. Simple. I think coffee can say a lot about a person. What it says about me? 1) I obviously don’t have a sweet tooth. Two pumps of syrup is the perfect balance of sweetness to me. 2)It’s incomplex. With it’s lack of lavish ingredients, it maintains it’s simplicity, which is a lifestyle I have high appreciation for. Straightforward. No bullshit distractions. 3) I’ve said it over and over again, but I enjoy matching my black outfits to my black coffee. The look is classic, effortless, and instant chic.

Going darker on the coffee spectrum is unquestionably an acquired taste. Don’t expect to fall in love instantaneously. However, if you’re open to flavor, you’ll get a load of all its richness and aroma goodness. Well that’s my spiel, but all in all, I have an obvious addiction to caffeine and the smell of fresh coffee grounds. #shameless

Happy 4th everyone! A big hoorah to our national independence and beer, y’all! I’ll be spending mines with my family bbq-ing, going to the local amusement park, and watching the grand ol’ fireworks at night. I’ll keep this one short and sweet as the family festivities are about to start soon. How is everyone celebrating theirs?

PS. This is one my best friends, Aimee. You may recognize her from one of my older posts we did for our Pylo #Girlgang shoot. Show her some instagram love ya’ll @aimeehazel

Pretty in Pink

Whoever came up with the idea of two-piece outfit sets probably did all of mankind the hugest of favors. Two-piece suits are the easiest way to look put-together and coordinated without all the effort. This blazer and shorts set give me the best of both worlds of masculinity and femininity. Perfectly tailored, silky, and the subtlest hint of pastel pink. It doesn’t get much better than this.

Western Florals

A beautiful floral dress to finally kick off the summer. Light and airy with ribbon sleeves; this dress practically speaks for itself. It is also probably just about the girliest thing I have bought all season long. On my day off, I was feeling the boho-steeze and decided to take this outfit for a spin while scarfing down infinite amounts of pizza and enjoying some deep forest scenery. Attractive, ain’t it?
