A Day in Beverly Hills

Summer Style

(Old Navy dress, Franco Sarto sandals, YSL bag and DSW Earrings)

This past weekend my husband and I spent the day in Beverly Hills and wondered to the Greystone Mansion, which was absolutely stunning. It was such a fun little spot to check out considering it’s FREE and it also includes free parking. The best part, I live so close by! Fair warning that all my OOTD shoots may be shot here!

For this particular day, I opted to wear a simple sun dress. Sometimes the summertime heat can make it a little hard to look stylish and cute. The sun beaming down doesn’t cause me to look sunkissed and glowing, it tends to make me feel sunburned and uncomfortable. So when planning a day out in the sun, I avoid wearing too many accessories that add unnecessary bulk and opt for fun flowy dresses with fun prints. It allows me not to feel so weighed down and instead makes me feel comfortable and well put together.

I also scored these pretty chandelier earrings on clearance at DSW. The dress is just so classic and lightweight, it’s perfect for the summer heat while wanting to stay look put together.

What’s your go-to summer outfit?!
