swoonworthy california fashion.

 Welcome to Wednesday! We're bound for wine country today, so in my absence, I have an extra special treat for you...a little guest post on California fashion from one of my favorite blogs, Brunch at Saks. Annemarie is the brains behind this blockbuster blog--and she is as sweet as they come! I'm so honored to have her guest posting :) Thanks again for taking the time out of your crazy schedule, Annemarie! Enjoy her post! xoxo {av}

I was so excited when {av} asked me to guest post while she enjoys beautiful California!  I'm Annemarie from Brunch at Saks, and as a lifelong CA resident (specifically calling Los Angeles home for the past 7 years), I've grown accustomed to our state's less refined and more relaxed sense of style. With our barely distinguishable seasons and what seems to be an endless mix of spring/summer temps year-round - especially here in Southern California - lighter pieces mixed with simple accessories have been a mainstay in our wardrobe for years.  So far this season, jersey and chiffon maxi dresses, wedge sandals, and beach-friendly accessories have been filling the racks quickly, so I've rounded up a few beauties that caught my eye:


1.  chiffon maxi by Mikael Aghal 

2.  Leah maxi by French Connection

3. Shyanne maxi by French Connection

4. high-low maxi by TopShop

5. Gypsy 05 maxi by Jordan dress

6. KM wedge by Matt Bernson 

7. Jollen wedge by Dolce Vita 

8. Wynn wedge by Michael KORS 

9. Quigley wedge by Coconuts

10. Brook wedge by Kate Spade

11. straw hat by TopShop

12.  Panama hat by Toast

13. Bay St. metallic by Kate Spade

14. printed scarf by SeedFemme

15. urban bracelet by Kenneth Cole

16. Alizee wristlet by Toast

Thank you, Alison! Enjoy CA :) xoxo

  10. I've been wary of the high-low dress trend but that one is so feminine, and not so "grungy"-looking (for lack of a better word!)

  24. Those dresses are gorgeousssss! I especially love 1-3... although I'm not sure I could pull off a maxi. I'm not really a dress kinda girl, but I seriously need to try -- these are all so much fun, and so cute!

  25. Great guest post! So glad you did it, because now I've found another great blog to read! Love the look of a maxi dress, but my 5' 1" height always stops me from wearing one!
