This weekend was much needed after returning from a fabulous vacation last week. I felt a little down about being back, but instead of sitting around at home and catching up on things, I decided to take advantage of the few days. We had a couple of close friends stay with us and many more that came over to hang out. I was happy to put work aside and enjoy beautiful weather with friends, after having a tough time coming back from Hawaii.
Summer does not officially begin for a few more weeks, but this weekend felt like the proper start to the season. We spent time with friends back in L.A. for the summer from school (law, business and med school), and had our first BBQ of the season complete with refreshing cocktails. I can’t wait for what is shaping up to be an amazing few months with plans for many more BBQs, some Hollywood Bowl shows and a few big celebrations (graduations, engagements).
These photos were taken last week during our vacation. The big island is covered in volcanic rock and it’s both eerily post-apocalyptic looking and weirdly beautiful. I’ve been living in these ombre shorts now that summer weather is here. They are fun and the colors are rather flattering against slightly tan skin.
Hope you had a great weekend! xx
