With summer in full swing, my signature denim hasn’t been getting as much rotation. The past two weekends in Southern California have been picture perfect beach days, so I’ve been reaching more for dresses and skirts. Get ready to start seeing a lot of these feminine silhouettes (with an edge, of course) in the weeks to come!
First up is this chic polka dot number from Vocabulary. A classic pattern reinvented for today, I about died when I first saw it on Cecelia. Flirty, feminine and chic, it honestly looks exactly like an Alaïa but it’s under $100. The knit fabric makes it perfect for daytime with sandals and a straw bag, and because it’s a substantial weight, it can easily transition to night with some heels and a bold lip.
For this OOTD, I opted for the nighttime route and paired it with my go-to handbag (check below for an under $70 version) and delicate ankle-tie pumps. Twirling my way through a bougainvillea lined street, it made me feel like Diane Lane in Under the Tuscan Sun going off to meet Paolo. Lucky for me, my Italian man is just behind the camera. Can’t you just picture it walking the seaside streets of Cinque Terre?!
San Diego ladies and gents, stay tuned for some fabulous summer events in the works with Vocabulary. Last year we hosted an epic pool party, and this year we’re not to be outdone! Mark your calendars for a quintessential San Diego experience in mid-August. There will be yummy sips + bites, a shopping experience like no other, and of course, fab company. Be sure to check back for more details coming soon!
