simple and free

free people heart of gold dress, M Loves M
When we were in Cambria over the weekend I decided to take it easy. And not just with my few days off, but also with my hair, makeup and outfits. I wanted to keep it simple and laid back. It helps that Cambria is not the type of town you need to dress up for! {darn you New York City!}. On the first day I wore this pretty paisley print dress from Lily & Violet with a pair of sandals and minimal accessories. I love the flowy, bohemian style of the dress with the bell sleeves and the frayed hem. It's the perfect outfit maker dress so you really don't need much else!

Wishing I could be back in Cambria now! I loved having a few days to relax with Matthew, my parents and my brother. I'm so grateful we all live close now so that we can go on these little vacations. I need to never take that for granted.

Have a great weekend everyone! Are you doing anything fun? I'm co-hosting Ruche's 6th Birthday Party tomorrow in Costa Mesa if you want to come!! I'd love to see some of you!! Go here for more details on time, place, and all the good stuff. It's going to be so fun!!

  4. You DO know that you look better when you're taking it easy than most people do when they're trying, right? :) It's OK, you can't help it that you're awesome! Love those sandals, BTW.
