Summer Details

Dress: c/o Billabong
Hat: c/o Billabong
Sunglasses: c/o Woodzee
Sandals: Salt Walter Sandals

Feeling all sorts of ironic right now.
I'm currently putting together this blog post of my tropical mexico look while sitting in a dreary waiting room of an auto shop. #life

For the past few months our car has been doing this thing where if it's going over 60 mph, the front tires start shaking unless you let off the gas. So basically--every time I drive on the freeway which is all the time, there's a possibility the wheels could fly off and I could die. Yep.

So we thought it would be best to get that fixed.

Today's outfit features one of my favorite cover-ups from Billabong! It's an adorable, light summer dress that has the coolest macrame details, ever. It's even inspired me to try out some DIY macrame projects that I'm excited to share with you guys real soon! Seriously, you would be surprised how easy it is to make your own Urban Outfitters-inspired macrame wall hangings for more than half the price.

If you've got some last minute summer vacation plans or you live in a place where it's summer 24/7, make sure you check out Billabong and their amazing collection!

I'm taking a last-minute trip to San Francisco this weekend to see an old friend so make sure you follow me on Snapchat (@heyitsaray) and Instagram (@arielrayhamilton) to stay updated on my adventures! I'm going to see Coldplay on Saturday night and I may or may not cry from all the excitement...


Have a great weekend, friends!

Cheers.

How much would you judge me if I said these pictures were from when I went to Mexico... 6 MONTHS AGO.

.......

At least I posted them within the same year, right?
:D

Well guys, summer is coming to a close and it's pretty bittersweet. The weather here is still blazing hot though (but give that a few weeks). Schools are back in session. Leaves are showing a hint of red in the mountains. And it's officially September. Here's to another chapter of summer fun ending and to a brand spankin' new chapter of scarves, boots, and mugs of hot cocoa. I'm sorry I can't help it--I'm such a FALL girl.

As much as I love everything that is autumn, there are of course lots of things about summer that I'm going to miss! Pool parties, barbecues, carefree atmospheres, and of course, the fashion. Cover-ups are one of my favorite summer pieces (I think I've mentioned that several times in my blog haha) and I love when I can find different variations of them! One of my favorites have been rompers--like this denim one from Billabong! I love how casual-looking it is and the laid-back vibe it gives off! This was perfect to wear around in Cancun because we were going in and out of the resort all the time--I didn't feel underdressed anytime we were indoors or overdressed when we were at the beach!

Long live the summer of 2016.
It was definitely full of memories and one for the books. :)

Stick around for the last of my summer outfits coming to the blog in the next couple weeks.
Then.... the fall party begins.
*I've already used this gif before but I'm binge watching Parks & Rec again so I thought it was appropriate...

Woo!

Cheers.
