It’s really getting hot where we are, which means all the more reason to stay inside or poolside. Be sure to read these links while you’re at it!

  • They say this summer’s When Breath Becomes Air is The Bright Hour, which will tug at your heart strings just the same.
  • I can’t wait for my full-screen iPhone 8 debuting this fall. Read five rumors that are hopefully true.
  • A bowl makes almost any meal feel like comfort food. Read why this foodie appreciates the bowl fad.
  • Five must-visits in Mexico that aren’t Cabo or even the trendier Tulum.
  • Carolina Herrera’s spring resort collection is a classic circus color story. I’ll have #2 and #8, please!

As we have seen I am a big fan of statement accessories in particular any accessory from Mignonne Gavigan’s killer statement collection.  Her designs are so unique and perfectly on point.  I fell in love with this scarf from her Summer 2017 collection.  Its bold summer colors are my jam. Pair it with a basic tee or this shirt and you’ve got an easy interesting ensemble.

Hi, everyone! I do my best to incorporate a well rounded list of links for those of you interested in all the things from interiors, food, wellness and whatever else. I hope you find something suited for you in today’s round-up.

  • A tear-jerking tale of a bride who received the best wedding gift of all is also a testament to how we should live our lives during the most important moments.
  • Your interior color story could say a lot about you. Mine’s yellow! What’s yours? 
  • I’ve been on Noble 31‘s email list to be the first to know when their first collection launches, so I wanted y’all to be filled in too. Their timeless tops are dreamt up by a team of sisters from Texas. Get one today! 
  • Clichés are cliché for a reason, and sometimes, the same holds true for tourist traps. These restaurant ones are actually worth it.
  • Stretching may be the new cycle, and it makes a lot of sense why.

Have a fantastic weekend!

I’m going to LA in two weekends to visit my friend Mimi who lives in Malibu. It was a last minute decision, but I’m so glad I made it. It will be a girl’s weekend through and through, and I can’t wait to kick off summer on the coast of California.

Rest assured, we’ll make our way to Malibu Farms along with these best brunch spots.

My sandal collection is slim pickens, so as summer nears, I’m stocking up, starting with this yellow slide.

This citrus parfait with coconut cashew granola looks like the ideal summer breakfast.

As an admitted text-addict but a lover of old fashioned handwritten notes, this experiment struck a chord with me.

Loving this moody coffee on-the-go cup design.

I’m sort of obsessed with scarves. For someone who is cold natured but lives in a hot, humid city like Houston, it’s the perfect thing to keep on hand.

So, you can imagine my intrigue when the necktie trend took off. I got my first in San Francisco when I fell in love with a spin-off of the classic bandana pattern in a forest green, pale pink and marigold colorway.

Here’s even more reason to feel good about the neck-tie trend.

I wore a yellow denim jacket as a bright addition to my Easter ensemble. Apparently, it’s the it color of spring, so I can’t wait to stock up on more.

My best friend found herself in a similar spot I did last year where she felt her job was robbing her of a great deal of daily joy. I feel fortunate enough to have found my dream job, and she just did too! Fill out this questionnaire to guide you toward yours.

Some of my best writing stints have been spurred by traveling to new cities. As summer approaches, plan a trip and perhaps you’ll find that putting pen to paper never felt so natural.

The name Elisabeth Epperson, a blonde baking blogger, will be one to know sooner rather than later.

Have the best weekend. X

View More Alice and Olivia dress: http://traciling.pass.us/lyndseyblog2

Last week L. Avenue jumped the gun on the Saks Friends and Family event, which is happening NOW. We were just so eager to stock up on a few must haves that we missed during the Shopbop Friends and Family that we were a week early. Thankfully most of our picks are still available and of course we have added a few new things to our list.  Happy Shopping!

I wore this pink Trina Turk maxi for a recent getaway to Cost Rica. This dress is a perfect summer dress paired with these sandals or these espadrille wedges and easy to pack. This malin printed dress is so fun for spring. We have a few formal occasions approaching and this dressier number would be perfect for a gala or wedding. Do you all remember this dress from this Vegas post, well you can snag it now on sale!

Denim is everywhere this spring and this white denim skirt is the perfect addition to my closet paired with this top and my new go-to blue sandals.  Staying true to the bell sleeve trend this Alice and Olivia stripe number paired with these Mom-approved longer shorts would be super cute for warmer days ahead. Im also loving these shorts and these bright pair too.

In my world, wedding season seems to be year-round. Still, with back-to-back weddings coming up, they’re more on my mind than ever. This Friday, I’ve rounded up five links on one of my favorite festivities:

These iconic dresses still influence those of today. Whose your favorite?

Laura Mercier’s caviar stick is perfect to tuck into your clutch for a reception make-up touch up. But it now; the best colors sell out fast.

Go through this gallery for the most fabulous floral decor.

What’s trending for 21st century nuptials: geotags and charging stations.

And en vogue for a departure from gowns for black tie: jumpsuits.

Spring has sprung!

GALENTINE’S GIVEAWAY!!!

In honor of Valentine’s Day, L. Avenue giving away this beautiful clutch to one of our lucky Galentines!

Last Fall, L. Avenue discovered LumillaMingus, and of course I was thrilled at the opportunity to work with them.  You may remember this post from the holidays where I am showcasing one of my favorite LM designs, which I’ve been carrying on the reg. Anyway, I immediately fell in love with Denmark designer, Lulu Johansen’s handbag skills. Her designs are well crafted and handmade right here at home, in Los Angeles. The designs spoke to my individual taste and accommodate the demands of my everyday life. This soft leather clutch is beautiful and needs a happy home.

HOW TO ENTER—it takes a few seconds or less by clicking here and entering your email address. For additional entries, enter via Instagram, as well. Good luck!
