If you need me I know everyone out there is complaining how Summer is coming to an end but that just isnt the case in Southern California. It stays nice and warm here through October so I kind of feel like we are just in the thick of it. We typically get to the beach each weekend throughout the year. Whether we take a stroll at the State Beach on the path near our house or we bring Lola to the dog beach you can always find us with our feet in the sand. This weekend is going to be a hot one. Looking forward to diving into my booksat the beach. We will start our weekend off with a little Hawaiian date night. Will share on my instagram stories tonight. What are your weekend plans? Hope everyone gets to take some time and relax. dress: c/o storets / bag: bembein / shoes: zara (similar) shades: elizabeth and james / nails: OPI big apple red Also!

Source by : eatsleepwear.comFashion Mom' s Style Style How to Buy a Woman a Handbag A shopping guide for the clueless.I've been told I'm hard to shop for. I get it, who wants to shop for a professional shopper? That would be like me offering professional tax accounting services to my mom, the CPA. (That sounds totally illegal, by the way, but you get my point.)But then I realized by way of interaction with essentially every man I've ever encountered (bosses, hairdressers, fathers of friends, dudes at dinner parties) that this isn't a consequence of my choice of occupation; this is about the intimidation factor that comes along with being a lady. Most men are just straight-up clueless or terrified about making purchases that will please the females in their life—be it their wife, sister, or "no label" companion. It seems they're happy to spend, but they want to do so smartly and successfully.The item I am asked most often from men for shopping advice on also happens to be the most beloved of all in a lady's wardrobe: the handbag. To which my first response is, "Well, is this purchase for purpose or pleasure—does she need it or just want it?"You see, the first thing you should know, sirs, is that there is a difference between the versatile monstrosities we sling across our shoulders to help us schlep around our day-to-day necessities and the pretty little things we can fit in the palm of our hand when we change into a Cushnie et Ochs bodycon dress after dark. There's practical and there's impractical, and both make great gifts.So, I've devised a shopping road map/cheat sheet to help get you in and out of the store with the right bag that perfectly suits her taste and lifestyle. You'll see it's really not that hard after all. (Says the professional shopper.)Source: Bloomberg.com
