"It is just NOT summer to me unless I go to Coronado Island in California. I have gone every single summer without fail for the 4th of July since I was a kid. There is just NOTHING better than kicking back at The Del pool, ordering a club sandwhich and people watching until your eyeballs fall out. Coronado is like taking a peak into decades past and I love the simplicity and hospitality of the quaint little town. It's hands down the best". Victoria decided to keep it local this summer break and had fun exploring her own city, specifically the famous Public Market in downtown Seattle. Victoria shared that,"I love Pike Place (not Pike's; that's how we pick out tourists!!), and whether it is throughout the school year or over break, you can find me there relaxing enjoying the slowed pace of the city, and enjoying fresh vibrant colored flowers, the pier, Great Wheel, and from certain angles, the Space Needle. It's a great escape and an activity I always love to take part in. I can grab coffee at the first Starbucks Coffee, watch flying fish, and wander the shops. No matter what the occasion, if any, I will always grab myself a beautiful bouquet of flowers! Summer trips to Pike Place Market are hands down THE BEST". Cristina wasted no time getting to the beach and enjoyed some time with her family in Cabo, one of Co Founder Karen's favorite vacation spots as well! Cristina said, "I love laying out on the beach and just relaxing!"--sometimes that is all you need, right?!, Allie's favorite vacation spot was all the way on the East Coast. She made additions to her closet by shopping at the original Vineyard Vines on Martha's Vineyard--we love it! Serena is a California girl, but she passed up the California beaches to catch some waves in beautiful Hawaii. Serena swam in the ocean many of the days which was great because she had some pretty beach hair waves to show off while there!
Have you gone anywhere exciting so far this summer? We would love to hear so leave us a comment below!

Life is but a bohemian dream, and we're loving It Girl Allie's free-spirited ensemble. Paisley (an ancient pattern that became popular in contemporary fashion during the 1960's & 1970's... fun fact!) is the perfect print for a flowy boho-inspired dress. The vintage pattern captures the bohemian mood, and the deeper colors feel fall-season appropriate. The burgundy lace headband ties together the boho vibe, and those adorable equestrian-inspired Tory Burch boots add a modern touch to the whole outfit. Adding your own modern take with a boho outfit is always a great idea; it makes it feel current, plus makes it more wearable for daily life (unless you're at a music festival, we wouldn't want to feel like we're wearing a costume). Plus, we love the rich cognac brown color of the boots; so perfect for fall!
What looks are you excited to try for the fall back to school season?

We're currently crushing on orange this summer, and It Girl Allie shows us how to wear the color in style. Feminine touches such as bows and a flared skirt make this dress as cute as can be. Her shoes tie the look together, incorporating both orange and another warm hue-- hot pink. Hot pink and orange pair nicely to add a color blocked effect to the look. We love how Allie paired the ensemble with a nude handbag, complimenting the colors in a subtle way. It's a perfect look for the weekend... date night, brunch with the girls, you name it. Have a happy Friday, everyone!
