Lately, I’ve had California on the brain and the reason is that I’m going home to CA in a little over two weeks to visit my family!  To say that I’m so excited, would be an understatement!  I haven’t really taken any time off yet this year and I haven’t seen my family since Christmas, so I really cannot wait.  I’m looking forward to not waking up to an alarm, lazy days spent with the family, and the warm weather.  Since my hometown is smack in the middle of the desert, it does get really hot in the summer (often it’s over 100 degrees)!  That means that when it comes to my outfits I’ll be keeping it simple in order to stay cool.  I plan on packing several breezy dresses like the ones above, my sunglasses, lots of sandals so my feet can breathe, and a small crossbody purse so that I don’t get weighed down.  I’ll be referring to this post, since I only plan to take a carry-on, and I might just update my packing tutorial afterwards!

Tell me: Are you planning to take a vacation this summer?

    I love that striped dress above! It’s staring me down. (Or more like I’m staring it down.) And isn’t that always the best? When you see the fam for the first time in awhile, and you can hit the snooze button and eat a lot!

    Hey, welcome back to the state in advance! Sounds like your family’s in a different part from where I live (I’m in Central CA), but it’s definitely been sunny around here (if extremely windy). I’ll be taking a vacation in July, but it’s up to Washington state to see my mom, so even in the middle of summer I’ll have to take a cardigan or two just in case. Last time I visited for the 4th, we got rained out!

      Thank you Mia! Ooo, what part of California are you from? My family is in Bakersfield. I’ve never been to Washington, but I have a friend in Seattle who I’m dying to visit! Hope you have a great time on your trip! :)
