J.Crew top (petite size on sale for $25) / Old Navy Shorts (similar) / Market tote bag (similar and this one has cute palm prints) / J.Crew slides (20% off with code LOTSTOSHOP) / Forever 21 straw hat (another cute option)
I'm sure dressed like one, but I haven't had a proper vacation in awhile. I'm seeing a few of my friends going on tropical vacations right now for the summer. I'll just have to live through them vicariously for now through their social media posts.

This outfit combo has definitely have me thinking about booking a vacation. These linen shorts are a nice break from my usual denim distressed shorts (that I seem to just wear all. the. time.). These linen shorts are much more light-weight and comfortable to wear during the hot summer months. It also pairs well with this J.Crew navy Dolman top that I didn't think would be wearable in the summer. It's actually perfect for going to the beach especially when it's a little windy outside. Besides, it's always ten degrees cooler by the water. I like how minimal this outfit look, but with some pop of color to it. You don't have to stick to black/white/grey color scheme for a look to be minimalistic.
Luckily, living in L.A. has its perks. I'm about a 20 minute drive to Malibu or even a couple of hours away from Santa Barbara that I can easily make a quick trip and back for some R&R. You can almost be on vacation year-round. I'm definitely wearing these slides for my mini-vacay trip (they're also available in 3 other colors if blue is not your thing). They're so comfortable. They make me look and feel like I'm on vacation. I might as well dress the part, right? It'll be really nice to get away even for a few hours some place that's not my neighborhood.
I'm hoping that next weekend, I can squeeze this quick summer getaway. I'm in the process of putting together my new studio/office since my roommate recently moved out. It's going to be an experience since I haven't lived by myself in years! My little out-of-town trip will be a treat once I get most of what need to happen taken care of. I'm currently in the process of sanding down my old table, so I can give it a fresh white paint to go with my minimalistic studio/office theme. I'm doing my best to utilize what I already currently own, and if anything getting rid of the things I'm no longer using.
Can you believe that we're almost half way through August? Summer is soon to be over, and it's back-to-school for some people. I can't believe how quickly these summer months has gone by. One thing you know, it's fall season already!
