I have been living in this super cute Who What Wear x Target romper. The collection has been something I look forward to every time I step foot into Target. I suppose I should mention this is not a sponsored post! It was this rompers fabric that inspired me to to make my most recent sewing project in polka dots. If you have any favorite fabric prints that you've seen around the web, share them with me in the comments!

Started my evening yesterday at a location you are probably familiar with if you have been following me for a bit. Soda + Swine in Liberty Station is one of my favorite bar tops in all of San Diego. It's a great place to meet up with friends, grab a bite to eat, and blog. My friend Vince took these photos for me right on the patio, so be sure to check him out!

Naturally, wearing my new favorite dress seemed appropriate. This is the same self drafted dress that you saw not too long ago with a couple changes. I snagged this beautiful navy dotted cotton from a local store called Rosie's Calico CupboardThis fabric store has a huge selection of cotton sorted by color as well as print.

The biggest change to this dress is the facing that I added. Wow, why didn't I do this last time? My straps and zipper are tucked all in so neatly. Just another reminder to not skip steps! I probably could take in the side seam a bit on the bodice but at the this point the dress is very comfortable. Something to experiment with the next version?

This romper sat in my closet for ages. Somehow the stitching near the edge of the zipper came undone rendering it unwearable. I hung it in my closet and forgot about it. Then when this hat came in the mail the other day, while digging for something to pair it with I rediscovered it. The stitch took about 10 seconds to fix and viola! 

The hunt for a wide brim hat started about a month ago. Most important factor was a brim that was not floppy. I found this hat on Overstock and decided to take a chance. It was also a plus that the hat is made by the San Diego Hat Company. I didn't see anywhere that clarified the brim as such, and was happy to see that it mostly stays straight out (it has a slight bend which I can live with). Below are some other favorites that I found along the way!

Posing in my latest creation in front of San Diegos own pink wall. Positioned outside of the ever popular Pigment, which I've mentioned here before as a great spot to do some shopping after brunch.

I drafted this dress last week out of an old sheet. The version above is the first real deal and I plan to make this dress in a few different versions. I have my eye on this red floral as well as this blue version. I might make some tweaks to the bodice but other than that I'm very happy with how the dress turned out!

Met up with my friend Karissa to shoot some photos for Nordstrom La Jolla! Snapped throughout the UTC mall on a gloomy morning.

Beach days are fully upon us, making easy dressing a necessity. One stop outfits that slip off are best if you enjoy a dip in the water (I personally, do not enjoy past the knees). This beautiful dress is by Kimchi Blue, and you can snag it in white or navy if you prefer. All I felt that I was missing was a straw hat! Also featured here is my Parpala Jewelry necklace that I toss on with everything.

Snagged this adorable romper from Target recently and I love it! The print reminds me of an Arizona Green Tea and the fabric is very comfortable. As you can tell it was an easy buy! Throw on some low block heels and you are ready for a beautiful Saturday in spring time.
