Obviously I wear my white button down 80 percent of my lifetime. It is a simple yet perfect add on to complete an outfit. This season, denim skirts have made a come back and I fell in love with them. I recently found these at the Market place in Berkeley. I found the perfect vintage Levis for fraction of the price I found elsewhere. I did find similar one for you. This look has been on repeat for few times now and knowing myself I will keep doing it.

The slip on dresses have been a trend this season. With the heat we are experiencing, I agree with this trend. Some of them are too much for me. The lingerie looking ones are not for me. However, the cotton relax ones are perfect. I am on the hunt for a white one of course. I'm surprised I didn't try to find that first before going with this black one. I am in love with this one though. I can't get enough wearing them! I've found a few similar pieces below. Also, the bag is from Zara but they are sold out so I found some cute basket summer bags too.

Since I've started working from home, I have more time to cook for us. We try to have dinner together most days if Matt does not have to stay long hours in the office. Here's one of the recipes I made for a nice summer dinner in the backyard.

Ingredients:

Lamb rack (Costco has a great selection)
Black pepper
Salt
Fresh parsley (chopped)
Herb of Provence

Combine all the ingredients together except half of the amount of parsley. Let the meat rest for a about 10 minutes before cooking. I used my cast iron pan to cook the lamb in medium heat. No additional oil was used since the lamb was rich in fat. You can also add a little lemon to break down the fat.  Garnish it with fresh parsley as well.

One of my favorite fabrics is linen. Most of your know that linen is usually worn in spring and summer however, since I love them so much I wear it all year round. They are comfortable and very easy wear. The texture it gives out is also another thing I love about it. It makes the look laid back and comfortable. Are you also loving any linen pieces?

Happy Sunday! Matt has been back for days now and I couldn't be happier. He's been trying to get back on the right time since having the huge time difference from his travel. We're crossing our fingers for a fast recovery. haha! We have enjoyed the summer weather so far. It is that perfect time for some off shoulder dresses to be displayed. It is also a perfect time to take it slow and enjoy every second you spend with your love ones. No matter how busy we get make sure to set a side some quality time with them.

Matt got me a Polaroid camera for my birthday last year. We've definitely used the camera a lot. Going through 30 films should give you an idea. I wanted to be able to show those moments we've captured in our home. Here is one of ways I've made for the photos. It took me 10 minutes to make it. I just used the staple gun to attached the wires of the LED lights in the back of the frame. That's it! attached your photos.

Is everyone in the US enjoying their long weekend? We definitely are. Matt just got back from his business and trip and we already have  plans laid out for the following weeks. Most of our friends are out of town for the 4th of July so we're keeping it low key and just enjoy a picnic at the park with our dogs. What do you have in stored for your celebration tomorrow?
