First Fridays

I've been loving getting more involved with local events lately now that I am a small business owner. One of my favorites to attend is First Fridays, a place where artists sell their work + galleries open there doors to the public once a month. I threw on a relaxed outfit, grabbed my friend Jake and some decks, and we headed to Downtown Phoenix. After a little exploring + shopping, we did some networking as well. So fun!

I am enjoying local events so much lately! They make me feel more connected to my city, and so many tcreatives are there to share their work + make friends! Try it for yourself :)

Santa Monica Style

When my friends and I vacation, we don't really take the whole idea of "relaxing" to heart. We had a free day to hit up Santa Monica, but we longboarded everywhere because parking is a nightmare...plus it's fun! I wanted to wear an outfit that was appropriate for a day of both skating + shopping, so I chose fun patterned separates, and stuffed a kimono in my bag for later. And, yes, if you're wondering, I did skate in my Birkenstocks. Surprisingly not so hard!

After skating from Santa Monica to Venice for lunch, we came back to The Promenade and did some shopping. As you guys know, I always like to hit up Brandy Melville, and my guy friends enjoy some of the other stores like Levi's...so it's a win win for all of us. I have one more find from my California trip that I can't wait to show it to you guys! Hopefully I will get a chance to style it next week :)

Talk to you guys on Sunday, hope you have a great weekend! x, Paige

Pastel Perfection

I had forgotten the power of an all-black outfit. I sported this tank + jeans combo around town because California was quite chilly while I was here, yay! To keep things fresh, I added this peachy kimono that I just love. Seriously, I die. I'm digging this outfit because it's something I would have rocked in Denmark, but it still works well for a day of hanging out at the beach. Any outfit where I can incorporate some of the European style I picked up is a win in my book.

How fun are these pretty colors behind me? My dad and I spent the afternoon at one of my favorite spots, Avila Beach, for Father's Day yesterday. The buildings there are all painted in bright pastel shades like these walls, so it's quite the picturesque place. We are now en-route back to Arizona, but I'll be sharing a couple more looks from California this week on the blog. Stay tuned! x, Paige
