How To Wear Black In The Summer Without Melting

Summers can be tough for those of us who love black, but it is actually possible to stick to your style in the warmer months with some clever dressing. Without giving up your all-black edge, you can still stay cool this summer with some simple outfit tricks.

Slithering Summer

Okay so I know this top is not super pink, but it's still very pink for me. I always used to struggle with finding outfits for the spring and summer since everything seems to be neon or pastel, but I think I've finally found the key: mixing "hard" and "soft" pieces together.

Summer Swim Guide

Summer means it's time to break out the swimwear! Whether you're going to the beach or the pool, finding a cool bikini or one-piece can be tough if you're not into soft florals and bright colors.

Ivory Heat

Cream and ivory are great colors for when the days start heating up. Even if you tend to wear darker colors all year round like I do, cream and ivory are versatile colors that can easily be made to look more grunge or edgy.

Light Me Up

Summer may be just around the corner, but it still cools down to the low 60s late in the day along the coast. I've been taking the cooler afternoons as my last few days to wear my fall clothing until I have to deal with the heat of the summer.

HWY In Echo Park

If you read my post about the Paradise Road Show, you'll know that my last visit to HWY in Echo Park wasn't successful. Since they were at the Paradise Road Show that day, my boyfriend and I ended up heading out to the desert to check out the show and the HWY booth.

Summer Shopping List

With summer just around the corner, it's time to stock up on some summer items! While I definitely prefer the heavy coats and cozy layers involved with dressing for the winter, I've still found some cute options for summer dressing that won't leave you feeling bored with your wardrobe.

Weekend In Phoenix

My boyfriend and I always work like crazy over the holidays, so it never feels like we really get any time off. Finally, we both ended up feeling burned out from work and decided that we both needed a little vacation.

Morning Scorpion

For our last day in Phoenix, my boyfriend and I decided that we had explored the city of Phoenix enough and went out to explore the desert instead. The great thing about Phoenix is that there's only about a 20 minute drive from big city high rises to desert horse ranches.

Desert Bowie

While we were trying to find our Airbnb when we first arrived in Phoenix, my boyfriend and I passed this wall that had different murals of the late David Bowie on it. I have an undying love for Bowie and was devastated when he passed, so, of course, I had to go visit the wall.
