Memorial Day Weekend always gets me so excited.  The unofficial start of Summer!  Just reminds me of everything that’s right around the corner.  Longer evening.  Sunny days.  Pool days.  Barbecuing.  Cut-off + flip flops.  Lots of cold rosé.  Happy hours.  Family vacations.  Celebrations.  Long weekends.  There is no better way to welcome summer, than to celebrate Memorial Day Weekend.

Weekend plans: Potter Valley Rodeo!  I haven’t been to a rodeo in yearrrsss.  Pretty pumped to dust off my shit kickers.  Some kayaking is on the agenda.  Lots of beer drinking.  And sunshine.  Whatever you do, make it a good one!

 

ONE – Saved By The Max // Did anyone else DIE over the Vanderpump Rules cast at The Max?  Raise your hand if you grew up on Saved By The Bell?  Zack ♥ You guys, I googled that shit.  There is a legit pop-up in West Hollywood.  It’s called Saved By The Max.  ANYONE can go.  It looks just like the Max too!  Kinda like the Museum Of Ice Cream + The Color Factory, but all about Saved By The Bell.  Basically it’s a place to go and get all the cool pictures that are wayyy insta worthy!

$40 a person and you can choose Brunch or Dinner in either The Max or Mr. Belding’s Office.

Check it out here: Saved By The Max

I really aged myself when I tried to have a convo with Bay about it…Ha!  “What’s Saved By The Bell?”

TWO – Cilantro Vinaigrette //  You will want to put this shit on EVERYTHING!  Swear.  Sandwiches.  Salads.  Over cheese…yum.  Put a dollop over hummus.  Toss with your veggies and roast.  I even added some to ranch dressing.  WOW!  I’m going to marinade chicken in the little bit that I have left.  It’s got a little kick, but Bay didn’t seem to notice.

I’m tell you this stuff is gold.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • big ass bunch of cilantro (or 2 small ones)
  • 1/2 cup olive oil (still in love with Seka Hills evoo)
  • 2 tablespoons vinegar
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes

Toss everything in the food processor.  Blend for about 1 minutes, until everything is nice and smooth.

Pour into a mason jar and pop in the fridge.

THREE – Crop Top //  Boxy + cropped + structured = perfect.  Just gimme all the crop tops!  I’m hooked on this look.  Front tucked.  Totally tucked.  Loving it!  And it’s pink.  Not only am I a sucker for a good striped tee, you make it pink and sold!  If you’re down with crop tops, grab this before it’s gone!

{statement tees}

Let your T-shirt do the talking.

Ha, I just came up with that.

Just like the LBD + Vans sneakers, the Statement Tee is one of those trends that has never gone out of style.  Not going to lie, I was completely anti statement/graphic Tee’s till recently.

Then, one day, I laid eyes on this Budweiser sweatshirt.  SOLD!  Next was the Cali top.  Soon after the Chard shirt.   Then the Salut!   This Mamacita is on its way to the house as I type.  And I’ve clearly jumped on the graphic tee bandwagon.  I find them to be casual + playful.  Just plain ol fun!

And I’m not talking Disney + sporting teams + cartoon shit.  Just to clear the air.  More like the punchy one-liners.  Destinations.  Old rock bands.

Here’s some of my faves:

{new closet staples}

Everyone has their closet staples.  Mine always consist of a good pair of denim + cute shoe + some kind of jewelry that goes with everything!  I grabbed a couple of new pieces last week that will be making the regular rotation.  So, obvi I must share the goods.

Check out the flat lay.  Cannot remember the last time I did a photo like this.  Bay even commented that I used to do them ALL.THE.TIME.  I think I’m going to bring the flat lay back.  What do you think?  Kinda gives you a better look at the items.

 

Ok, so last weekend a girlfriend and I were talking….

You know when someone compliments something you’re wearing and you say:

“Target $20”

So me!  I love telling peeps where to get cute stuff.  Especially when I didn’t pay a shit ton for it.

But, don’t you hate it when you say “cute top” and the chick says “thanks!”

It’s like….Ummm, wait!  Details please!!??!  WTF?

Hook a sister up.  Tell me all about what you got on girlfriend.  Let’s share the cute shit wealth.

You know what I mean?

Since I’m all about sharing.  AKA compulsive over-sharer Ha!  Here are so goods you need in your closet as you transition to spring.

{one shoulder}

IMG_2181

Hey guys!  Just popping in to share my current love for the one shoulder top.  Remember my obsession with the cold shoulder?  Let’s reminisce….

{the cold shoulder}

{cold-shoulder maxi dress}

{friday 5}

{current uniform}

Told you, it was my thang!  When I find something I like, I take it overboard…just a little.

It’s even better than the off the shoulder.  None of that constant adjusting.  The one shoulder stays put.

Believe it or not, I only own ONE one shoulder top.  But, I went to Target today and I realllly wanted to buy more.  I’m on a strict “NO more summer clothes” rule.

September is going to hit and I wont touch them again….and then they wont be in style.

And I’ll have to have another garage sale to get rid of all my shit.

Just kidding….I’m NEVER doing that shit again.
