It's the last day in May - can you believe that? I had every intention of saving this post for Monday, until I realized that it would be June! In any case, this is my last look as Lucca Couture's Blogger of Month! (Quite different from my last look, no?) More and more these days, you can find me in a comfy pair of flats (Soludos are my latest obsession), a baggy tee, and a good pair of jeans. While that all may sound simple, I find that the details more than make an outfit. I love the shredded cross design on this tank - perfect for a concert or a warm sunny day. What I love even more is how easy it is to just put it on and go! I paired it with my distressed boyfriend jeans - aka one of my comfiest pairs of pants ever. I know the guys don't too much fancy gals in boyfriend jeans, but luckily for me, I dress for myself.

So now that you've seen all my Lucca looks, which one is your favorite? Comment below and let me know! And don't forget, you can still grab 10% off your order when you enter "PANCAKESTACKER" at checkout!

Alphabet Soup

Nothing makes me channel my inner girly-girl more than a perfect skirt (or dress). I miss the days when I lived in SoCal and could almost always step out in one of the two. In fact, once I moved back to San Francisco (like three years ago, ha), I had a major problem, because I owned almost no pairs of pants. I'm pretty sure if you click through my archives I've said this exact thing 100 times before. If we're going to get really honest here, it took me basically until last year to embrace pants. 

Though, embrace is probably too strong of a word because sometimes, the sun will come out and all feelings of acceptance for pants goes away. For days like those, I wear skirts like this. Can we talk about how absolutely perfect this High Waist Circle Skirt by Lucca Couture is? I mean on ever single level. From the cut to the color to the shape and the detail - we're talking love, people. L-O-V-E, love. But of course, sometimes the city sun likes to fool you, so smart San Franciscans know to never leave home without a jacket. No matter how sunny it is, you don't let that magical weather cloud your judgement. And what better than a perfect light jacket to pair with the perfect skirt. This BCBGeneration cropped jacket went unexpectedly well with my skirt and once the two came together I knew they were meant to be. Finished off the look with my stylish but comfy Zara heels (which I also have in black, because why not?) and I was ready to conquer the day.

BottleRock Napa Valley | Day Two

90 degree weather, adult Capri Sun, and soothing songs under a beautiful setting sun - this was day two at BottleRock. From the indie beats of SoCal duo Best Coast to the hippie, good vibes of Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, nothing could beat the relaxing atmosphere of Napa Valley. I spent most of the day sprawled out on the grass, sipping wine and eating fruit, with my eyes closed as I listened to amazing talent performing only a few feet away. If you asked me today to pick a favorite act from the weekend, I wouldn't be able to answer. It's hard to pick just one, since everyone I saw on both day one and two came out on stage with such pure, raw talent and enthusiasm. However, what I can say is that I've never seen a crowd come together quite as much as the one for Edward Sharpe. It was such a treat to see them perform live! After going to Coachella and then BottleRock, it feels a little strange to wait so long for my next concert. Alas, August can't come soon enough - Outsidelands, I'm ready for ya.

Blue Times Two

Didn't I tell you I had a thing for blue? You might remember this shirt from way back when (when I FIRST starting blogging) I call it my lucky button up, because it's brought me great things. I had to dig it out of my closet right when these shorts arrived because I knew nothing would complement them better. These chambray dolphin shorts from Lucca Couture make the perfect warm weather companion - they're light and airy, but still stylish and comfortable. What could be better? Paired the look with my new blue seersucker Sperry watch and my Soludos for the quintessential summertime look.

BottleRock Napa Valley | Day One

Some might say that I have an addiction to music festivals and concerts. Some might be right. There's something so great about dancing under the sun with tens of thousands of people and just coming together for the love of music. Not sure if that classifies me as a little bit hippie, but if that means feeling free and relaxed, then I'll take it. I went to the first ever BottleRock music festival at Napa last weekend with Kathleen and boy was it enjoyable. Definitely doesn't compare to Coachella, but it was nice only being a few hours away from home. Here's a little snippet of photos from the first day of the music festival. Day two's outfit and snaps will be up shortly, so come back soon! xx

Lemon Lime

L.C.t Punk Cross Back Tank & Lace Bralette in Neon Yellow c/o Lucca Couture; Striped Jackson Short & FREE Affirmation Bracelet c/o BCBGeneration; Nine West Flats

I typically gravitate towards neutrals (ok..really just black and white and blue, ha!), but sometimes, the perfect pop of color is the most unexpected one. So, when this neon yellow lace bralette came in the mail, I was basically through the roof. Not only was it something I didn't already have (and truly needed), but it was a piece that helped me to get out of my comfort zone. I paired it under a white racerback tank (also from Lucca Couture's new summer line, L.C.t) and a pair of striped shorts from BCBGeneration. I looked around and realized that I had this neon yellow "FREE" affirmation bracelet and thought, "Man, it's almost unbelievable how easily this outfit came together!" But sometimes, that's how it is. The perfect little piece inspires a whole outfit in the matter of minutes.

Lacoste L!ve Desert Pool Party

Before I completely jump into May, let me take a moment to relive one of the best parts of April - the Lacoste L!ve Desert Pool Party. I realized that I let this post sit in my queue and forgot to press publish (oopsies, y'all - my b!). I spent 3 of my three days of my Indio trip lounging by the pool, sprawling out in a cabana, and filling up on popsicles, tacos, ice cream sandwiches, (and honestly, whatever else was being served because it was all so damn good). Relaxing? Hell yes. So I have to say it - take me back to the desert sun, please?
