    Summer is here and it's getting warmer every day. There is no better time than to pack your bags and visit sunny Southern California!

    Mixing prints is a must for a cute SoCal inspired look, especially Los Angeles where whimsical summer style is celebrated. The key to perfecting a mixed pattern is to find a uniting color that ties the outfit together. Effortlessly stylish, we paired the light blue denim butterfly print bustier with our pink floral bahama mama peplum skirt. Perfect for daytime shopping on Melrose and Hollywood sightseeing, this look easily transitions for dinner on the beach.
