No news here – all black has always been a great option in my book.  I tried keeping things fresh by dressing down this awesome basket weave, asymmetrical skirt.  I love the fit and texture it adds to the outfit and asymmetric lines are always flattering on the legs!

These boots from Windsor are super comfortable and the best part – they slip on! Kind of funny how that 1-minute time saver can make all the difference : )

Last Friday I got to hang with Jenn Penn.  She is a youtuber and was so sweet to be around.  After giving her a tour of LOVE NAIL TREE, we went to Zinc Cafe and visited the Quay Eyeware HQ.  Aren’t these minty sunglasses so cute?!

One of my favorite new skin care lines is Visage De Layla.  I’ve been getting to know Layla over the last few months and I love the products so much! I’ll be sharing more on them in the next few days…

Last night was a wonderful experience… I attended a dinner hosted by Darling Magazine and The Giving Keys.  The night was full of yummy food and amazing conversation amongst women that are taking aim and believing in themselves and being honest with their struggles.  I love both of these companies and last night really just sealed the deal for me : )

MAXI DRESS + BIRKS

A super casual outfit in this oversized maxi dress and slip-on birks! During the summer it always seems that the less you try for an outfit, the better they turn out : ) It’s the careless-cool vibes that I’m all about.

This beautiful leather clutch is by Ian Kafoury and handmade in Portland.  The stitching, the finish of the leather, the smell, the quality… this is a timeless piece and I love knowing that it was special made by Ian, the designer. He just started his business a few months ago and it’s an honor to own a piece and share it with you here.

I had a total pleasure of hanging with famous Vine girl, Brittany Furlan, at the LOVE NAIL TREE warehaas.  She is a big fan of our clothing line and was so cool to hang out with.  I laughed for about an hour straight : )

Last Thursday I attended a private dinner with DSTLD denim.  It was a gorgeous setting and I met and hung out with a long of sweet bloggers.

Hi guys! Here’s a bohemian outfit featuring a few timeless items that I plan to have in my closet for many years.  As I’ve gotten older, and blogged through many outfits, I find myself looking for the pieces that I won’t get tired of after a few months or year.  These awesome Free People sandal-boots are so unique and versatile – actually I can say that about most pairs of shoes at Free People.  I always love their shoe collections.  If you’re looking for something cute for summer – check out all these unique sandals they have.

The Daniel Wellington watch is definitely a keeper! Such a classic look – I love this Swedish company! They are actually offering a discount to TAKE AIM readers – 15% off- using the code ‘takeiam’ until August 15th! Now YOU can get one too : )
