We were supposed to have El Nino rains this week... and here it is again at 88°F! This did not give a girl a lot of warning to plan and fine tune her favorite summery outfit combinations - which is why it is a good thing to take a peek at the S/S collections before S/S officially arrives (especially in CA). 

I'm not someone who can think about the next season 6 months out (when the runway shows usually happen), but I am glad I have kept a Pinterest board going since about the start of the new year to figure out what proportions, shoes, and colors will feel new, exciting, and modern to me. 

Here I'm taking my cue from the season's washed out tones, utility fabrics, easy fits, and chunky 70s-inspired shoes. I love the way the pale colors create a desert-like palette together - pretty apt for a day of unrequited Southland rain, too. 

My toes aren't yet painted up for sandal weather, but at least I felt good in my clothes!

If you haven't had a chance to plan for S/S yet, take a look at my 2016 Pinterest Board for some wearable looks I love.
