I have been dealing with all kinds of crazy this week and it’s really forced me to slow down, take deep breaths and appreciate what I have in life. I wore a version of this outfit when I was in Ojai last weekend which is one of the most serene, Zen places I have had the pleasure of spending time…it has a bit of a hippie vibe (Ojai and the outfit) which is of course synonymous with peace, love and happiness … I hope that is what the rest of my summer is filled with! Peace Out V

I don’t know if it’s the heat of the summer or the popularity of 90′s minimalism but I’m really hooked on keeping things uncomplicated right now. A simple skirt and t-shirt in basic black and white set the stage for bold accessories…these shoes are my new obsession, not really made for long walks but they are so beautiful I will suffer through the discomfort and wear them with everything! Thanks for stopping by, xo Zia

I love shirt dresses, they are effortlessly chic and there is something very “Summertime in Europe” about them to me so I never pass up a chance to grab one. I found this one at the Mango sale and although it took an extremely long time to ship from Spain it was well worth it, the color is so amazing! My husband and I had an adults only weekend up in the Ojai Valley this weekend, and as much as we missed our little dude it was an amazing 36 hours! We attended a gorgeous wedding on a private property and just ate, drank and relaxed in one of the most beautiful settings you can imagine. These photos were taken outside of our B&B to give you a little taste of how stunning Ojai is…summer is such a marvelous time of year!!!

I know there is nothing particularly groundbreaking about this outfit, but it represents what I would wear when in a jam and have to zoom out to an interview or meeting. These jeans are super stretchy and light so I don’t mind wearing them in the summer heat and though I don’t normally shop at F21 I found this blazer with the tags still on at my local thrift store and have been wearing it all the time! With the bright heels I could meet up with a friend for drinks but I would certainly wear shoes that are somewhat more sensible for a meeting …here’s hoping to lots of drinks and less meetings for the weekend!

Amidst all the festivities this past weekend (birthdays and a friends’ wedding anniversary) I was actually able to take time for myself, relax and reconnect with my inner goddess! I caught up on RHOC (guilty) went through my pile of untouched fashion magazines, did some gardening and laid back with an amazing much needed eye mask…I dressed in a billowy blouse and full skirt to punctuate how I’m feeling today: “like the summit of beauty and love” Happy Monday Everyone!!!

Living in Los Angeles we are exposed to constant year round sunshine which can take its toll on anyone’s skin. Being that I am very fair skinned I am even more susceptible to the sun’s damaging rays, therefore I am never without sunscreen on my face and rarely without a hat and sunglasses! Aside from the protective factor it’s also a great way to disguise a bad hair day…have a fabulous weekend a remember to jump on over to the Style Elixir to meet some new bloggers on the Friday’s Fab Favorites link up I’m Co-hosting! xoxo
