Memorial day marked the unofficial start of summer this past weekend. Fireworks, ice pops and watermelon abounded along with a seemingly endless variety of flag bikinis. In my own version of getting into "the patriotic spirit" I whipped out my favorite Blu Life striped racerback dress (previously seen in "westside till I die") from one of my favorite shops ever, Planet Blue on Abbot Kinney. What better way to American-a up my stripes than with the perfect denim button down?! (get it here) The shirt looks cool tied around your waist in the hot sun and doubles as the perfect light layer for post sunset breezes. Since I can't seem to take my favorite hat off...I let it add some cool-girl vibes to this look. Hope you had an amazing long weekend!
