Beach Tones

Wearing: Knitted Maxi Skirt (similar), High Neck Tank Free People, Head Piece Urban Outfitters, Blue Tone Wrap Bracelet Sweet Bling (as seen here), Sandals Nordstrom BP

 I still can’t believe it’s July and I’ve been saying things like “I’m chilly” and “I wish I had a sweater!” Like WHAT?! This Chicago weather is definitely no West Coast summer, that’s for sure! And not that it helps but this knitted maxi skirt has me wishing I were back on the West Coast, walking on a beach in San Diego! A girl can dream, right? Xo

A Tunic

by Gabi

Wearing:: Printed Tunic: Free People, Lace Up: Free People, "G" Necklace: Similar

Uh, can we talk about this dress (well technically it’s a tunic but…) it’s AH-MAZING right? I got it, tried it on and immediately ordered it in the other color! I’m so obsessed with it and will be wearing both all the time, they're so versatile and perfect for any occasion! Cause I mean come on, who doesn’t like to look pretty to walk through the park! Hope you’re all surviving the week thus far, Xx.
