ocean sorbets & other summer treats.


F21 dolman knit | H&M deconstructed shorts | Zara large wallet | Jeffrey Campbell Bradshaw wedges

My mind has been set on beach paradise mode for the past few days, as I am eagerly anticipating my return to L.A. later this week with my bf. Home sweet home. I am L.A. raised, and ever since I left the place for my job, I have maintained being wistful and continue to miss my family like heck. Each time I visit home, I never fail to get all giddy. My bf is just as excited, as I am sure the gorgeous beach horizon doesn't seem so far away to him now. So I pay tribute to the Southern California summer in this post with my kaleidoscope of brights, including my latest favorite lip color, Revlon's Siren.


And goodness, I still am enamored with these seaside-esque condos. They are truly San Franciscan looking. I  am sure some of my readers recognize the scenery, which we cannot help using because there is such beauty in the simplicity. My bf caught the backside of the condos and it was such a cinematic alley view, so we decided to capture some photos there.

Hope you have a lovely weekend, y'all! Can't wait to share with you some of our adventures in L.A. later this week.

And don't forget to enter my Pixie Knitwear giveaway!

You take such gorgeous pictures, Jamie- you are just so photogenic!! I can't decide which item to say I like best first- everything is just so lovely. Your platforms are absolute perfection (I'm dying for a pretty pair of wedges). And that turquoise color is so flattering to your complexion, and as for your lip color- it's gorgeous! It looks like a pretty rusty orange-red.. I must try it out some time... You'll have to take some pictures of LA and show us around-- I'll be looking forward to it ;P xx
