Julia Dzafic in a navy Cupcakes and Cashmere dress

Happy Monday from sunny California, friends! After an equally relaxing and fun birthday on Saturday, I flew out (with a mild hangover no less) to Los Angeles to meet up with my mom and drive to Claremont to visit my grandparents for a few days. When I lived on the West Coast during college, I would see them at least once a week which is something that I miss dearly. Now that my trips are fewer and farther between, our visits feel that much more special.

We always have at least one dinner (if not more) at our favorite hidden gem of a Mexican restaurant and a lunch at In-N-Out. The rest of our time will be spent by the pool and catching up on life.

The temps while I’m here are supposed to be upwards of 90 so I packed mostly easy breezy shirt dresses like this one. It’s one of those dresses that can be worn to the office with pumps on a summer day (with a white blazer if your office is more formal) or with sandals for al fresco drinks or brunch.
