I put on a real shirt yesterday! I felt like such a grownup in a button-down versus my usual quarantine sweatshirt. We didn’t leave the house or do much because it was raining but it still felt good to put on real clothes and pretend we had somewhere to be!

This new Gorjana BANKS MIXED COIN NECKLACE paired with it perfectly. I wear this piece on repeat layered with either my Bali Lockit from Gorjana or the Bespoke Plate Necklace. That is about all the effort I am willing to make right now!

California Brands

A few of my favorite California brands right now are Grayson, Gorjana, and Margaret Elizabeth. These Grayson shirts are so comfy but still look put together. The new Spring collection has its Hero shirt reinvented in a tissue light material. Perfect for a beach getaway (when we get to go out again) or a day by the pool. These linen pieces are equally stunning. I loved them tucked into jeans or a skirt or even tied at the waist. I shared how to style a button up here.

Margaret Elizabeth is a small Oakland based jewelry designer. Her pieces are dainty and strong. They are such a blend of feminine colors with bold metals and shapes. The Daydream Teardrops in Moonstone, Baja Bangle and Pearl Crawlers are on constant rotation for me–even stuck at home.

Which of these California brands would you most likely buy from? Let me know in a comment below!
