How To Freshen Up Florals For Summer

I. Love. Flowers! And finally it’s time to wear them. Floral dresses (especially the new ones from J.Crew) are hands-down one of my top go-to pieces in the warmer seasons, and for good reason.

LA can get blisteringly hot in the summertime, and there’s nothing better than throwing on an easy, breezy floral dress to jet about town in. Plus there are such a variety of floral prints, that you can really play with them depending on your personality, mood and occasion. 90’s-vibe smaller floral prints are great for a casual daytime look, while larger, bolder florals are great for heading out in the evening – with a Latina flair. But if you’re looking for a way to freshen up your florals this summer, try out a French countryside-inspired vibe!

This tie-front dress with chic tiers from J. Crew is so chic, and feels like something you’d throw on to prance through lavender fields in the South of France, especially when paired with this classic woven straw tote. To keep the look modern, I went with bright yellow beaded hoop earrings, a half top-knot, orange lip and unexpected lace up espadrilles that have a little edge to them. When wearing a dress like this, it’s important to pair it with accessories that are sophisticated and bold. A few other accessories I love that pair well with this dress would be a classic straw hat, chic neck bandana, and colorful, oversized sunnies.

  • Does anyone else own a scrapbook?! 📚🤣If you don't necessarily consider yourself to be an 'artistic' person but still enjoy getting creative, you've got to try scrapbooking! I've been doing it ever since I was young (and even kept a wedding inspo moodboard secret from Mackenzie for a few years before we got engaged, lol) - and it's such a fun, easy way to express yourself. See how to make your own at the link in my bio

  • Happy Mother’s Day!
I want to dedicate this post to one of my dearest friends, who became a Mummy to premature surrogate twins this year, only to tragically lose them a few hours later, as she held them in her arms. My friend had been through years of trying for a baby through IVF, and finally - after years of hope and patience - we all felt her and her husband’s dream of becoming parents was about to come true.
That heart-breaking day also happened to be the date Honor was born, so the poignancy was all the sharper. I still remember the moment I learned the news. My own mum was with me, and we wept silently, hugging. 
I fully expected my friend to avoid Mackenzie and I for a while, to deal with her grief. Surely being around a newborn would just be too much. But testament to her angelic, brave character, she asked to come over. I’ll never forget the warmth and love in her eyes as she held Honor tight. She said she was full of hope. She said that the twins would be watching over, helping and guiding them on their continued journey to have a baby. 
You’d think that would be enough to focus on, but no. Instead, this wonderful couple decided to set up @pompomsandstardust , a charity not only raising money to help other people have surrogate children, but one that offers crucial (and lacking) advice and support to the ‘IP’s’ (intended parents), along their journey. 
If you or your loved ones have been through a difficult time conceiving, my heart goes out to you- I wish you strength, perseverance- and please feel free to share your story below.
The charity website will be up soon with more information, but for now follow @pompomsandstardust 💫
