Are you guys still looking for that perfect piece of crochet heaven for summer? Well, look no further, I have found something that will change your lives on a warm & sunny day. 

That piece of heaven is this crochet playsuit by Lipsy, in which I wore on our adventure up to the top of Mt. Pinos while prancing around those beautiful flowers.

We were really trying to play with dimension in these images to both showcase the detailing of the playsuit and also the dreamy flowers that filled the meadow. 

The conditions were perfect. So, If you're looking for a nice hike, and don't want to go to far from LA, I recommend visiting this spot. We've been many times, but I've never seen those flowers until now!

This is what it looks like when you get to the top of the mountain - the best views (especially when you arrive at golden hour)! All of the mountainous layers were lit just right.

I cannot even tell you how comfortable this playsuit is - I could live in it all day every day.

I hope everyone is enjoying their weeks so far! I have been traveling a ton (as I'm sure you guys figured!). Next week I am headed to Denver to see one of my best friends get married and to also check out the beautiful Colorado scenery. As of now we have Hanging Lake, the Great Sand Dunes, and the Rocky Mountains on our to do list - let me know if there are any other must sees!

The other day, I ran away up to the top of Mt. Pinos with my love Darius Twin to capture this warm magic!

The light was oh-so-heavenly, and paired nicely with that dreamy, lacey bralette! We found ourselves on a new path that we normally don't explore. It guided us to the top, and we found ourselves at a perfect viewpoint of the setting sun. So y'all know me by now -- I pulled out my speaker, opened the bottle of wine we brought for our picnic, and danced around the open field while Darren captured me in my (and the sun's) best light!

It felt so amazing, and I felt no shame as people passed by wondering what the heck I was doing. 

Sometimes you just gotta let go and dance like no one's watching! Peek what I'm wearing with the links below.

I gotta say, these summer days surely do bring heat, but when you make way to the top of a mountain for golden hour light, the temperature and breeze are just perfect. For those of you who live in LA -- make a journey up the Angeles crest to Mt. Wilson. It's so close and so rewarding! The views just keep on getting better. I recommend starting the drive right at the beginning of golden hour (an hour before the sun sets). That way, by the time you're at the top of Mt. Wilson, you'll arrive just in time for the colorful sunset.

For this drive, I decided to go with that amazing, matching set by Dezzal. I have been finding myself wearing white a lot lately, and I love it, so when I saw this get up on their online shop, I knew it would be perfect for the warm summer days to come! I just love the vintage vibe of it too. My sunnies and watch are from Triwa - my new favorite online destination for both eyewear and watches. I just love the minimal aesthetic. Both of the pieces I selected pretty much go with my entire wardrobe!

This series of photos is from one of our recent adventures up to Big Sur for a few days! On the way up, I stopped by my favorite boutique Blackwater in San Luis Obispo and picked up the magic you see me wearing in these images. I couldn't wait to wear those black & white face gems with that beautiful golden dress - the way those gems matched the embroidered detailing on the sleeves was just too good to be true.

During our golden hour drive up and down the coast of Big Sur, we passed by fields of yellow flowers lining the coast - I mean hello, COLORS! Just what I needed for that golden get up ::) This is the perfect time to go to Big Sur if you have it on your list - escape the heat, and enjoy that cool breeze, coastal drive, and forest life! It's magical up there I tell you. Check the links for what I'm wearing below!

Welcome to Bryce Canyon, ladies & gents! Jordan here, your visual tour guide for the day to take you through this scenic heaven on earth. ::)

We choose to drive as far to the top as we could, and then take our sweet time cruising back to home base, stopping at all of the scenic points along the way. So, this visual guide will take you through most of the views the park has to offer. It was quite windy up here!

The winds were strong, but that all added to the epic-ness of our experience. I felt as if I were flying when I looked down at all of the canyons, as my hair was swept with the ever-flowing winds. And that beautiful dress by Auguste couldn't have moved any better.

These trees looked so haunting - an unexpected surprise we drove by on our adventure!

We finally made it back to the spot we chose to see the sunset at. So here I am, soaking up that last bit of golden hour light before the sky fills with color!

While, of course, showing off that dress's movement!

The sunset is here, guys, which as you know by now is my favorite time of the day! Hello hue heaven, I'm kickin' my feet up for you!

Don't leave the park until you see the sunset. It is such a sweet moment. Here I am, taking it all in, enjoying every minute that passes as the vibrance continues to grow.

Thanks for the fun times, Bryce Canyon!
