this is officially my last Spring outfit, promise! view outfits by season: Spring / Summer / Fall / Winter

If this top has never made it on my blog before...I'll eat my hat! It's one of the best vintage finds ever, that I can't take credit for because I literally picked it out of an etsy shop when I won a giveaway. I can't find anything like it on the internet, of course (I mean it exists I just don't know how to find it) but the style really reminds me of the fabled Madewell Courier shirt (it comes in white / chambray / stripey / the cutest print.) 

This entire outfit felt like a vintage dream! I was serving some 70's realness, what with these "clogs" (they are not actually wooden and more like sandals), full midi skirt, and my button-up. 

Oh, and my flea market earrings that you can't see because of all this hair! A very sweet reader recently asked me the secret to the volume in my hair, which is...genes? That's literally all I see when I look at these photos. SO MUCH volume! I literally wash my hair, air dry it, style it with my pillow and cross my fingers. That's it.  

All I've blogged about this month is style and travel, which is...cool, but I always start to feel a little antsy when that happens! Just because, although that has been the majority of what I've been up to, there's also a lot of real life happening. I don't know that I've ever had a month where I've made as many trips as I have lately, but there's still the normal day-to-day: working hard at my main hustle, various side-hustles (you know how I do), trying to figure out being 26, not fun stuff that everyone has to do, lots of hanging, and #26DaysofPriya (can you hardly wait for me to tell you about that??) 

Anyway, how's Summer treating you so far? I'd love to hear from you if you're reading!! 

I am headed back to California tomorrow (the last trip of the month. Seriously.) for Anjali's wedding! Catch you on the flipside and in the meantime, stay in touch via Twitter & Insta!

A Mid-Week in Charleston

Monday, June 19


Last week I did an experiment called "can I go on vacation from Tuesday to Thursday and then work on Friday?" The results: NOPE. Friday was so brutal. Not complaining at all, but I think I was a bit too optimistic.

Jacqui flew into Nashville on Monday evening, and on Tuesday morning, we hit the road for Charleston just as early as we could muster (after, you know, minimal sleep the night before.) Having one of my best girlfriends to myself for a few days was nothing short of an absolute TREAT. I can't remember the last chance we had to spend that much time together.

And Charleston is just such a dream, and the perfect destination for a girl's trip (we are already plotting our next one, btw. I'd love to go back to Miami or check out Sedona, AZ!) I hadn't been to Charleston since Andrea's bachelorette party a couple years ago, and we did not run out of things to do! We packed our 2.5ish days pretty full, but things were also somewhat low-key (I'm talking I was in bed snoozing by 10:30pm both nights!)

We snuck in some beach time (on Sullivan's Island), pool time (at the wonderful Mills House Hotel that was so perfect for us!), oysters, the "Dark Side of Charleston" tour (lol! But I would totally recommend it) and of course about a million selfies on Rainbow Row.

Love you, Jacqui! Thanks for being a dream of an adventure companion.

Oh P.S. We basically referenced the Gal Meets Glam Charleston Guide the whole time, and it was great! We had dinner at The Ordinary and Le Farfalle, (both incredible), dessert at The Darling (my key lime pie was a highlight of the entire trip), coffee at Black Tap, and breakfast on our way out at The Daily (so great!) Would absolutely recommend the guide if you are headed to Charleston!

| sunnies: stall in London {similar} | earrings: Madewell- sold out! {similar} | tee: Old Navy {basically exact!} | jeans: Urban Outfitters- still available and seriously the best | heels: Report via Nordstrom Rack | lip: Wet n Wild LiquidCatsuit in Rebel Rose |

click the item name for additional wears on the blog/brand or retailer to shop exact or similar!

Nutella and peanut butter. Simon and Garfunkel. These jeans and these heels. Just another example of a timeless combination that never ever lets me down. (And I can't stop wearing!!!)

A sister I will not name (whose name rhymes with Catinka) borrowed these heels while we were in Chicago. It's always fun to lend and borrow stuff when you're with your sisters, but after Galina stomped around in these for an entire night, I was a little :O. But that's when I realized, these are the kind of heels I will buy again right away after they fall apart, because they are that great: super comfy AND they go with everything! I think if you can fill your closet with pieces like that, that you would immediately replace if you had to, then you are doing it right.

If I could do one nice thing for everyone in the world, I would buy them all a pair of these jeans. I just think it would alleviate a lot of conflict and unhappiness and anxiety over what to wear. Once again, you don't have use my **affiliate link** but you do have to buy this jeans. And you're welcome.

And while you're reading this, I'm making my way back from a mid-week vacation in Charleston with Jacqui! Just in time to finish up a Friday for the weekend in Nashville #summerhours. All examples of me living my best life. I hope it's been a best life week for you, too, and thanks for reading!
