Navy Jalie Camisole 3131 and Gradient Waves Knit Skirt

Summer calls for pure comfort and this tank and skirt combo fits the bill perfectly. I love a simple cami with an easy pull on skirt. Easy to wear for day and transition into my daily yoga practice at night. The cami is Jalie 3131 which I’ve made 3 of at this point. It’s a …

Navy + White Stripe Hooded Swim Dress

We finally got back to the beach last weekend! I think that’s what I missed most during the shutdown. Just in time too- since they’re shutting down again for the 4th of July as our covid numbers are ever increasing here in Florida. The beach and ocean were full of seaweed but it was still …
