Ruffled Skort // Gladiator Sandals

Zara Skort, similar HERE / F21 Tee / Mossimo Sandals / BaubleBar Earrings

A few weeks ago I took a family trip to Malibu.  I’ve visited a few times before but had never stayed there prior.  It was so beautiful and peaceful!  We definitely utilized our time there but did venture out to other areas of LA as well.

On an afternoon in Santa Monica my husband suggested shopping.  He, nor his 16 or 20 year old kids, are big shoppers so I knew my window would be small.  We literally went in two stores before the shopping excursion ended!  The first store was Nike (for him).  The second was Zara.  I pretty much raced to the back of the store to raid the sale racks before it was time to move on.

I scored two adorable ruffled pieces including this ruffled skort.  I got it for $12.99 but it’s now online for $7.99!  Be sure to scroll down to check your store’s availability if you don’t see your size.  I also found a similar style HERE.

The skort is high waisted so a cropped top would work well or you could tie up a tank or tee like I did here.  This v neck tee is less than $6 and comes in a ton of colors.  You never can have too many white tees!

My gladiator sandals are a great Valentino knock off.  They are less than $30 online but I’ve heard that they are on clearance in store for $10!  Either way, they are a great deal and a quality shoe.

I mentioned these Bauble Bar beaded earrings recently and am so happy to report that they are now available online!  They are so fun for summer.

If you haven’t noticed, I have a major thing for all things blush.  I have a super cozy winter cardi in blush but thought this lighter weight beauty would be perfect for late summer into fall.  It was one of my first Nordstrom Anniversary Sale purchases and unfortunately it sold out pretty quickly.  I’ll let you know if I see it get restocked but I also found this other blush cardi that is worth checking out.

Now is a great time to stock up on some flowy relaxed tees.  Mine is from Express and HERE is a similar style in a bunch of colors on sale for $10!  The high low style is great tucked or untucked.  It can be worn with virtually anything – shorts, skirts, jeans, leggings, and joggers!

My booties are also from the Anniversary Sale and still in stock!  These are so comfy and will get tons of use this fall.

These are literally my favorite pair of shorts.  They are a size bigger than I normally wear in jeans but I think it just makes them that much more cozy.  I slip on a belt and I’m good to go.  I was lucky enough to find mine on Poshmark for $20 but HERE is a similar style for full retail.  You should definitely check out Poshmark to look for your size though.  I did a search for my friend the other day and found a couple pairs for her for great deals.  Search for Rag & Bone Boyfriend Shorts or Rag & Bone Destroyed Shorts.

I can’t believe tomorrow is Friday already!  I just got back Tuesday night from a family vacation in Malibu, California.  It was a perfect little getaway.  We enjoyed the beach, ate yummy food, hiked, and helped my step son move into his next apartment.  If you follow me on Instagram you may have seen my Insta Story videos of some of our adventures including some tourist activities like my first visit to Rodeo Dr. (window shopping only!) and to Sur (didn’t see Lisa or a single cast member!).  There were a few celebrity sightings, one of which I have no idea who he is and already forgot his name but the kids knew who he was.  The other was Anthony Michael Hall, almost unrecognizable, sitting at the table next to us at a sushi restaurant.  I’ll always remember him as the goofy kid is some of the best movies of my childhood.
