This time of the year reminds me of a few things — lazy Summer days, destination vacations, and wedding season. The latter will forever remind me of the tail end of Summer as that's when my husband and I were married and more than enough of our friends, and friends friends choose this season to celebrate their own love. That being said with so many weddings to attend what's a girl to wear?  Last week my beautiful girlfriend Daisy got married— and I had the very same dilemma. 

Thankfully my go-to destination for any special occasion or any occasion for that matter did not disappoint. ASOS always has just what I am looking for in a variety of different price points, the styles are always on trend, and no matter what makes it's way in my shopping cart I always end up feeling like a rock star in it! Case in point — this dress! It's major and I'm pretty obsessed. The print is epic, the thick cotton almost neoprene texture hugged all my curves (hello Kim K!), and the off-the-shoulder cut was just what I was looking for to wear to a summer wedding. Check out the asos wedding shop if you are in the market for some new threads as a wedding guest, a bridesmaid, someone's date, or are even the bride.

I just finished last night's episode of Game of Thrones and am on a high. All season I felt like the plot was missing the twists and turns I was used to in season's past- tonight it was on. So in honor of a "Winter is coming" kind of show, I give you my Summer look — just to balance things out. ;)
Anyone else on a GOT high? Thoughts? Let's discuss. Or maybe let's discuss this romper, which is 100% Summer worthy.

This dress is everything that Summer should be. Sunkissed shoulders, lightweight linen, and other-era bell sleeves. I decided to rock it without any jewelry, as simple as summer gets. I only paired with a well-worn pair of Birkenstocks, and my giant straw tote.

blueberry picking in the central valley// ott farms

 


My husband is originally from Mexico City, hence this amazing trip we took last year, but his family moved out to a little town in the Central Valley when he was little. This fair town is otherwise known as Modesto —it's known for great agriculture, delicious produce, and it's insanely hot summers, oh and um, Scott Peterson- but we'll save that story for another day. While it's a little sleepy town, that not many San Franciscans residents have heard of, I like it, one because my husband grew up there and two because it's sooo nice to escape the winter feel that is a San Francisco summer. 

A few weeks while in Modesto, I Googled fruit picking on a whim, and you'll never guess how many farms and orchards there were in the nearby area?! I found over ten farms that specialized in strawberries, cherries, and blueberries. You could buy the pre-picked fruit or you could hand pick it yourself. When we settled on a our farm of choice- Ott farms- we were amazed to find out one pound of blueberries only cost $3. As you can see in the photographic evidence above you can tell I left with quite a few pounds. 

Ott farms was so picturesque with it's acres of cherry trees (which we sadly didn't pick), and rows and rows of blueberry bushes. It was very crowded on the day we went but still managed to pick and taste, and pick some more until we were satisfied with our five pounds of self-picked berries. There is something about putting in work on a project and finding satisfaction when you go to reap the benefits, in our case eating all the berries.

If you find yourself in the Central Valley anytime soon lather on the SPF, find a big sunhat and head to Ott farms!
