California Dreamin in Fabrik Style
With the onslaught of this heat wave that Chicago’s experiencing, I find myself missing California even more. Yes, I know, it’s even hotter there. But after my trip there in February, I understand why so many people write songs about the state and why so many people are always moving there!
This look is inspired by the style spotting I did while in Cali. Pair shorts from my favorite local haunt, Fabrik Wicker Park [who just keep popping up on here!], plus those awesome vegan shoes from JBU by Jambu and I’m set for summer. I love adding breezy button downs to everything all year long, but especially in summer. Anything that can help keep me cool.
That California Wanderlust
The California vibe that I love so much pulls from an air of coolness with a hint of adventure. And speaking of adventure, my gal Cara of Badd Pictures sent over a lovely little gift recently. See, when I visited Venice Beach back in February, she broke out her sweet new camera gear and had some playtime. Enter this awesome video capturing my first time in the Pacific Ocean. I can’t even handle how great of a job she did. If you’re Cali-based, definitely get in touch with her. Check it!
Basically, she’s amazing and this day was amazing and I need to go explore there again. As often as possible. But in the meantime, I’m going to sit here in Chicago and dream of California, the ocean, and wanderlust.
Are there any places you’re wanderlusting after? Tell me about it in the comments!
