With the Giants playing this Friday I thought it would be a good sport and wear my orange and black someday this week. I picked this dress up at a local boutique and love the light weight material for summer. Light weight summer dresses and skirts are high on my must-have list for the warmer months quickly approaching.  Shop similar dresses below!

Most weekdays, my work (outside the office) usually starts around 5pm during the golden hour. By the end of the day I am exhausted and am always in need of a great pick me up. This last week before a smoldering hot afternoon shoot… I indulged in an ice coffee to help keep me alert and enthusiastic. I always joke around that what to wear for a photo shoot is much harder than it may seem. Since most of my shoots take place in an open field I have learned (and ruined) many outfits that catch onto the little stickers in the fields. Over the years I have learned what fabrics to wear, what fabrics not to wear and also what shoes are the best to wear!

This white skort from Zara that I purchased last April quickly became a favorite in my closet that I went back and had my sister buy the black one so that we could switch anytime! This skort can be easily dressed up or down. The sturdy fabric is great because it rarely wrinkles which holds up great when traveling. I must admit that I love the black more so than the white because I can wear it without the fear of getting it super dirty. So if you plan on purchasing this skirt definitely purchase a color that you will wear often!

Summer is one of my favorite seasons. I always love searching for summer dresses, swimsuits, beach bags, hats etc. After spending a few days in San Diego at the beginning of the month when the big heat wave hit, I realized that my beach attire needed a little TLC. Living in a beach town (while in college) I quickly learned how to adapt to that effortless beach style that Southern Californians are known for. Walking around town, I was inspired by so many different styles which is why I decided to round up my favorite beach/pool finds for all occasions this summer, whether it be a casual trip to your local beach, vacationing in Mexico or lounging by the pool in Vegas I’ve got you covered.

Shirt – ZARA // Trousers – // Shoes – // Necklace – ZARA

Red is usually a color I steer clear of, but when I spotted this backless beauty on the ZARA sale rack back in February I HAD to have it. I love the neckline, texture and ruffle detail on the front of the shirt and of course love the low cut back. For the warm Memorial weekend… I decide to pair it with black trousers and red tennis for a kicked back vibe. As much as I love wearing almost anything with a heel on it, sneaks are always a great alternative for a busy weekend that involves lots of walking.
