Summer for us means a whole lot of traveling light, since this will be our third year migrating back west for the summer holiday. Actually, we are spending a week in New York first, then going to California, and then stopping for a week in Riviera Maya before returning to Houston in time for the beginning of the new school year. With all that travel ranging from big city to resort, I needed to plan wisely, and for that there was no one better to call on than LA modest style It girl Rachelle Zarabian.
Formerly known as Rachelle Yadegar (yes, of Raju fame), Rachelle recently tied the knot (in a stunning custom Simin Couture gown no less) and has managed to pull off her signature style while also tying the knot on some seriously enviable headscarf looks. Her neutral aesthetic is always full of nuanced layering, but she also knows how to expertly pull off striking color in unexpected ways. So when Rachelle emailed me her list of what we can't live without this summer, I didn't hesitate in clicking add to cart on all of it. The best part? Her couture-inspired finds are surprisingly affordable and transition right into fall.
