My friend Pata, of Sapere Aude wines (you need to try their sparkling rose, trust me!), was kind enough to introduce me to Heidi Merrick, a local Los Angeles designer. She’s originally from Santa Barbara, CA so she’s a true Californian and she makes gorgeous and easy clothes to wear. She’s kind of a big deal but so down to earth you forget upon meeting her. I found this dress in her studio and immediately loved the color; I had to have it. Since the dress itself is bold and has some skin baring details, I pared my accessories down so it could take all the attention. I’m wearing my Camille Jewelry ear cuff and choker, a Vita Fede bracelet, my Mango sunnies, and my Tkees flip flops. The look is minimal and perfect for a warm day.
