Must Have: Utility Jacket

The perfect lightweight layer for the warmer weather is the military-inspired utility jacket.
Neutrals such as navy, khaki, or my personal fave olive, look great with any outfit. 

Throw one over jeans & a tank or belted over a patterned sundress for a not-trying-too-hard look.

Key Lime Cupcakes

One of the many things I will miss about summers in Florida 
is my dad's homemade Key Lime Pie. 

Just one bite of the tangy dessert 
instantly reminds me of days spent on the boat getting too much sun.

A new twist to an old fave...

Road Trip Adventure

The past 10 days since I found out about my new job have been a whirlwind. 
My dad and I packed and loaded up all of my treasured belongings in my tiny two-door car.
Choosing what was most important to take to California was quite a feat. 
Needless to say, an entire suitcase full of all my shoes made it. 

3 days, 40 hours in the car, and way too much fast food later, we made it to my new apartment. 
Even though we were about to rip each other's heads off by the end of the road trip,
I could not be more grateful for my dad pausing his entire life to drive across the country with me. 

Here's a few photos from the road trip & settling into my new home...

Dinner in New Orleans overlooking Bourbon St.

Driving through Arizona 

First non-fast food meal once we made it to LA

Lunch at Lemonade in Beverly Hills

Today was my first day!
 It went really well and was nice to see familiar faces welcoming me back to the team. 
I came back just in time for the BCBG employee sample sale this Friday!
