After a few weeks of around-the-clock appointments and errands, I finally had a chance to relax with my husband this week. It’s amazing how luxurious it feels to wake up and know that you have nothing scheduled that day. We spent a few days visiting with one of our best friends in Pasadena who lives only a few blocks away from our old apartment, so we just had to visit all our favorite spots in the area. To be honest, the highlight of my day was sleeping in, but picking up macarons at Lette and pizza at Blaze made me a very happy girl. Old Town Pasadena’s charming streets do not disappoint. Every sidewalk is filled with cute shops and sweet gardens blooming with bright colors. Combine the beautiful walkways with the amazing weather, and you have the recipe for the perfect afternoon walk. I found myself strolling around town each afternoon to catch the west coast sunset.
My afternoon walks were a great way to clear my mind, but the abundance of stores had me picking up a few new summer fashion staples each day. I picked up this navy floral fit and flare dress from Forever 21 for less than $15, and I knew my new wedges from TopShop would match perfectly. I’ve been wearing my new jewelry from Leila nearly every day. The Secret Garden necklace‘s simple and classic pendant design adds the perfect finishing touch to any outfit, and the floral design couldn’t be more precious. I’ve been pairing it with every outfit from jeans and a tank top to frilly dresses. My brown leather Gold Hammered Ring Wrap is another must-have accessory for summer. The leather and gold design looks great layered with gold bangles and statement pieces, but it’s also beautiful enough to wear on its own. I have been so impressed with the quality and versatility of both pieces. They add the ideal amount of character and charm to any summer outfit.
