What I’m Wearing

White Lace

Summer white lace

Top & Jeans: Studio F Colombia | Shoes: Jean Michel Cazabat c/o Piperlime | Purse: Banana Republic c/o | Sunglasses: D&G | Crystal Bracelet: Tenis Colombia | Rings: Colombia, Tiffany & Co.

I took these shots on my first day back at work after my vacation to Colombia a couple of months ago (hence the tan and the mosquito bite on my ankle). These are now my favorite jeans and it’s too bad that they don’t ship to the US because I want more…along with a bazillion other cute (and affordable) things that they carry! The jeans fit perfectly and I absolutely love the neon detail at the cuff. Plus, the distressing is spot on – not too much, but just right.

The Perfect Beach & Pool Cover-up

The perfect beach & pool cover-up

Cover-up: Athleta c/o (on major sale) | Bikini Top: Triangl c/o | Bikini Bottoms: L*Space | Bag: Banana Republic c/o | Shoes: Loeffler Randall (on sale) | Sunglasses: Ray-Ban | Earrings: Anthropologie | Rings: Colombia, Tiffany & Co. | Bracelets: Gifted, gorjana c/o

I never realized the importance of owning a cover-up (maybe because I grew up in San Francisco, where we rarely get the weather that merits wearing one). When I spotted this one on Athleta, I knew it had to come with me on my summer trip to Spain. As it turns out, I apparently have a thing for all-things-blue this summer (as you’ll see in the next few posts) and the color of this cover-up definitely does not disappoint. It’s comfortable, light, sexy, and full of details. Plus, it’s now on sale – hooray for you!

Summer Vacation: Packing Begins

Packing for Summer Vacation with Athleta

Tank Top: Athleta c/o | Workout Shorts: Athleta c/o | Sports Bra: Equinox | Denim Jacket: Levi’s | Shoes: Nike | Sunglasses: Ray-Ban | Earrings: Anthropologie | Bracelet: Gorjana c/o | Rings: Colombia, Tiffany & Co. | Gold Polka Dot iPhone Case: Kate Spade

In exactly a month from today, I head out to Spain for two weeks – my first time in Europe! For my trip to Spain, my goal is to fit everything in my carry-on suitcase and a shoulder bag/purse – which means, inevitably, I’m going to have to get crafty with my outfits and bring pieces that:

a) I can easily mix-and-match

b) I can wear for multiple occasions, such as sight-seeing during the day, working out, as a cover-up at the beach (don’t worry – I’ll have access to a washer and dryer!)

c) Can be rolled up tight, making room for my bulkier items (running shoes, flats, makeup, toiletries)

And that’s why I LOVE the pieces that I snagged from Athleta recently. I find that their merchandise not only works great for building up a sweat at the gym, but are also super simple to style with other pieces in my closet. I’m obsessed with this tank, which I know I’ll be wearing all the time in Spain and these shorts are perfect for walking through Barcelona and running on the beaches of Menorca and Mallorca.

As I was planning outfits to pack, I couldn’t help but slip into one of them for my walk around San Francisco!
