I love being a tourist in my own city. There are so many different neighborhoods in LA that you can always find a new corner to explore. This Sunday I made my way over to Echo Park, an area I haven’t visited since I was in High School. The park surrounds a gorgeous little lake with a water feature that attracts both paddle boaters and ducks alike. I didn’t get to rent a paddle boat this time, but I’ll definitely have to do it next time I’m in the area (hopefully soon).
I wore my kimono for a Sunday spent at the park, because it’s not only stylish but also extremely comfortable. I was able to lay down under the trees and feel completely relaxed in this cover up. This kimono will be in heavy rotation all summer long.

As I’ve mentioned before, I tend to stick to basic and simple pieces when it comes to my personal style. However, when the summer rolls around, I start adding more bohemian-esque clothing into my daily routine. Everything from flowy tops to embroidery becomes a basic staple as the mercury rises. This may have to do with the festival style that is so influential at the moment and flooding my Pinterest feed daily. While I do love festival style, I tend to lean towards bohemian inspired pieces in the summer because they evoke a sense of careless cool. And in the end, summer is a time to be carefree and laid back while simultaneously looking polished.

I’m finally back in LA for the summer. It feels great to have graduated from Penn State and settle back in at home. I’m currently looking forward to spending the summer relaxing by the beach and pool before I have to start Grad school in the fall. Summer is probably my favorite season, even though I’ve come to realize that it’s summer year-round in LA, after living in PA for two years. Regardless, I have always loved summer and the carefree spirit that sweeps over everyone. Plus the dressing is easy and you can eat popsicles whenever you like.
When it comes to my style in the summer or any time of year, I like to keep things simple. This is why I usually stick to the basics and gravitate towards neutral colors. And while I will always love my basic white tee and black skinny jeans they can sometimes get a little boring. So when I feel the need to elevate my basics a bit, I turn towards accessories, especially jewelry. And this gypsy inspired statement silver necklace did just that, took my white tee from basic to something much more interesting.
