This week I wanted to share beautiful pictures of the Seven Magic Mountains in Nevada desert as well as my favorite ‘desert attire’ – black straw hat + Dra Clothing dress and top.
We spent a day in Vegas visiting the International Jewelry Show and I once more understood the weather benefits of California 🙂 . The summer heat in Nevada combined with extreme air conditioning in any covered space were not easy to digest !
We all know straw hats are huge right now, and all of you probably own one or more. You know how sometimes those straw hats are pretty heavy and make your head boil more than anything? Well my newly acquired black straw hat from J Crew was actually perfect for once – light as a feather, no fabric lining, good coverage – everything you need on a hot summer day!
Now, about the dress and top. Recently I discovered the LA- based Dra Clothing label and wore their beautiful dress and top from a very light fabric for my Vegas trip. By now I own a few pieces from Dra Clothing and I am really enjoying the natural fabrics and simple cuts. I also understood I actually love having a 2-piece, this really solves the problem of matching. With this 2-piece and my black straw hat I could survive the Vegas heat and simply throw my top on when we were going into the air conditioned spaces.
