In case you haven't noticed, I have an obsession with Topshop.  I'm wearing Topshop from head to toe.  I didn't even realize it until I started typing this post.  This is just a brand I keep gravitating towards.  It used to be Free People years ago, then BCBG, then Zara, then Nanette Lepore, Alice and Olivia, and now I'm on a Topshop binge.  Do any of you ever do that?  Do you completely obsess over a brand for a period of time?

I wore this outfit for lunch with my boyfriend.  We ended up going hiking after at my favorite park.  It was beautiful out!  Spending time in the outdoors always clears my mind.  I feel like I need to spend time outdoors or I start losing my mind.  ;)

White / white : Hot August Nights

White : White 1 White : White 2 White : White 3 White : White 4 White : White 5 Wearing:
Topshop floppy wool hat
Equipment shirt
Bdg shorts from Urban Outfitters
Topshop sandals
Topshop necklaces
Mac "Flatout Fabulous" lipstick

This is the last outfit I took pictures of for H.A.N.  Pictures were taken somewhere in the outskirts of Nevada.

That's pretty much all I can tell you about these pictures right now.  I have some sort of bug or flu that's been going around.  So I don't feel like myself.  Everything feels like it's in slow motion and my head is spinning.

Hopefully your weekend is going better than mine :)  I hope to be much better tomorrow and fully recovered in a few days.

Before Autumn

Before Autumn 1 Before Autumn 2 Before Autumn 3 Before Autumn 5 Before Autumn 6 Before Autumn 7 Wearing:
Sincerely Jules "I Say Yes to Love" tee
Paige jeans
Enzo Angiolini sandals
Target headband
Vintage quilted purse
Mac "Girl About Town" lipstick
Location: Kenwood, Ca

I love this time of year.  We've reached the end of summer and autumn is only a day away.  The leaves have started to turn color, but the weather is still stuck in a last minute summer heat.  It's this point in between seasons that makes me so happy:  When another season is on the brink of beginning.

PS.  I'm taking a break from the Hot August Nights series.  I have one final set coming up.  I just felt like I was wearing one too many sets of crop tops and summer-ish clothing.  This outfit I'm wearing in the pictures was taken recently...it's definitely more "end of summer/early fall" friendly.

J.O.A. palm print crop top and matching skirt coord
Topshop straw crochet hat
Topshop sandals
Barney's wicker bag
Mac "Morange" lipstick

Happy Friday!  This is a picture-heavy, but quickie post.  I wore this outfit on the second day at H.A.N.  I don't know if this two piece set is still available at Revolve Clothing.  It was on sale when I bought it.  I thought it was perfect for a car show :)  Normally most people wear this type of print on button down short sleeve shirts sat these types of events...so I thought this was a fun new spin on it.

Have a great weekend!

1971 : Hot August Nights

1971 1 1971 2 1971 3 Wearing:
Parker top
Topshop American Flag shorts
Rebecca Minkoff gladiator sandals
Prada sunglasses
Topshop layered necklaces

My boyfriend and I have made it a tradition to go to Reno for Hot August Nights every year.  If you don't know what HAN is, I'm sorry to hear that.  ;)  It's the biggest classic car show event in the world.  It takes place in Reno, Nevada and the event lasts for an entire week.  A whole week of live music (50s and 60s inspired of course), drag races, nightly cruises, daily show 'n shine (in multiple places), live car auctions, lots of food, contests, and more.  Everything is 50s and 60s themed.  It's an absolute blast!  I have the time of my life every time.

What I love most about this event are two things:  the people there and the cars.  Everyone attending or participating is there for their love of classic cars.  Having a vintage Mustang myself, Hot August Nights is the perfect place for me.

I wore this outfit for our last day there.   I knew we were going to be walking around everywhere, so I wore comfortable sandals.

Something to note:  If you've never been to a car show before, don't ever touch any of the show cars!  That's basic car show etiquette.  The owner of this beautiful 1971 Mustang actually let me touch his car...and sit inside of it.  I've been to countless shows and this is the first time that's ever happened.

Hope you like these photos.  There are more outfit photos I'll be posting for this Hot August Nights series :)

Better Together: Matching Tweed Set

Better Together 1 Better Together 2 Better Together 3 Better Together 4 Better Together 5 Better Together 6 Better Together 7 Better Together 8 Wearing:
Harlowe & Graham matching crop top and skirt set
Kate Spade mini cedar maise purse
Nine West sandals
Dior sunglasses
Estee Lauder "Candy" lipstick

I wore this outfit in the middle of July.  It was an unusually hot day in San Francisco.  My boyfriend and I were celebrating our anniversary together.  While we originally planned on going to specific places in the city that day, we decided to keep things spontaneous.  We walked around and just enjoyed ourselves, rather than meticulously planning out our day.  It turned out to be one of the best weekends I'd had in a long time.  It was great spending quality time with my love.

You might notice that my right leg is bent.  I was stung by a bee a few days prior and I'm allergic.  It was hard to keep my leg straight because it was so itchy!

Okay, that's all for now :)

Two weeks ago Amber and I went to Screamin' Mimi's in Sebastopol for some gelato.  We couldn't help but take pictures in front of their pretty pink wall.

Can we talk about these pants?  I've been more than excited about this 70s trend coming back in.  I've always loved flared pants.  And these are seriously amazing.  They're soft, stretchy, and so so comfortable.  I highly recommend them!  I bought them in blue but they also come in pink.
