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.
