Coming home to California is always a warm welcome. And there’s no better Cali attire than Los Angeles based brand Joah Brown (dress worn here).

I’ve often spoken in my interviews about my bi-coastal tendencies. Every few months I fly west to recharge, rest, and reboot. I go to bed at like 10pm, do yoga, eat healthy (ish), and don’t wear makeup. And then, after about a week or two, I thrust myself back into New York City.

And while not all of us have a career that gives us that flexibility, it’s important to find time for some R&R. No matter where you are or what you do. Maybe that means dedicating a Saturday night to staying in. Or a weekend in the country or at your parents house. Maybe that means calling in sick and just staying in bed all day. Whatever it is, make time.

Buy the dress HERE.

    […] have quite a few Joah Brown pieces. And you may have seen some on the blog before here, here and here. Their clothing is made from a modal blend, so it’s super soft and drapes perfectly off the body. […]

    Love the backlessness of this dress, and how simple it is. Perfect scenery to get photos of it, and came across your blog today, really beautiful, had to give you a follow on Bloglovin

    Omg, this place looks incredible! And so do you, of course. I totally agree about going to the west coast for some R&R time; I’ve done that only once, but I really want to do it again later this year. Thanks for a great post and have a great weekend!
