(Candela dress, Vintage hat, Vintage Ferragamo sandals, Ippolita silver band ring, Ax + Apple longhorn ring, The 2 Bandits paddleboard ring, Stila “After Glow” lip color)
So there’s one dress worth lusting over, and it’s this one. An oversize Candela tunic dress that’s best alone, or over my favorite bikini. I think the embroidery was what brought my attention to this beauty. Back at my house in LA, I’d wear it over my swimsuit before jumping in! Of course, I’m always one who has to scoop up the leaves…and like a prooo. I really don’t mind doing the dirty work when I’m visitng California, I’m just always so happy to be around the people I love. And I’m constantly rediscovering old finds…like my mom’s vintage Ferragamo sandals. The block heel and little ankle buckle is just what I was looking for this season. Sitting in the garage, I begged to bring them back to life once I got back to New York. I was just about to ask the boyfriend to make a similar pair…and I think maybe we will! Mom’s old Ferragamos are always a keeper, and worth the occassional resoling. But what I’m currently super in love with, is Stila’s new lip collection. Before flying off to LA, I received them as a gift, and threw them in bag, knowing that with the sunny California days, I’ll want that super bright pop of lip color. They smell so good, and they’re like those really bright colors I’d find in my mom’s bathroom in the 90’s. So rad. Home will always remind me of that time. The bubblegum pink lipsticks, oversize hats, and block heels. Too good.

    The embroidery on that dress is absolutely gorgeous, especially when paired with that bright pink lipstick. Certainly worth lusting over. Lovely to find those shoes, I always love it when I’m searching through some of my mum or grandma’s stuff and come across some true treasures.
    As always, the photos are beautiful (as are you!)
