Whoa can't believe this is the third week of #UntamedStyle. This month has turned out to a bit busy and its finally starting to heat up. We are in full summer mode in California, June Gloom is starting to dissipate. The weathers been heating up so its time to bring out the summer wardrobe. Being a California girl, summer wardrobe basically means shorts, tees and sandals. Its almost like a uniform, especially when you live closer to the ocean.  California style is very relaxed, we all love to be comfy, keep cool and chill. That's exactly what I had in mind with this outfit, nothing but cool hippie vibes. I'll keep it short this week since I know many of you, including self tend to get busy in the summer months. Lets jump right in to this weeks #UntamedStyle Summer Look.

Something about summer makes me crave a good burger. What better place to get a nice juicy burger than Johnny Rockets. I love the diner and retro motif of Johnny Rockets. What a great way to spend a summer afternoon enjoying a cheeseburger, fries and shake.  Although sometimes you want to mix it up and try something new. Johnny Rockets will soon introduce a new vegetarian menu with a veggie burger option in the fall. I was invited to a taste test at a local Johnny Rockets to help select the veggie burger option that will be served. We tasted 5 different patty options and scored them on juiciness, texture and flavor. I am not vegetarian or vegan, but do enjoy a veggie burger. Sometimes you just want something a little lighter or healthy with out feeling deprived. Johnny Rockets will provide 4 protein options with their burgers; farm raised beef, farm fresh chicken, turkey and now a Boca veggie burger.  I am excited to see if my favorite will be selected for the new menu. You will have to wait until the fall to enjoy the new veggie burger option. Good to know now everyone will be able to enjoy the Johnny Rockets experience. Keep reading to see what the burger will look like. Can't wait to find out which burger will be on the menu!

June Gloom Summer Style - #UntamedStyle Linkup

Summer officially begins on June 20, but we all know memorial day is the unofficial start of summer in the US. All around me I see the signs of summer, especially living in Southern California, it seems we get an early start with our weather. Although we do have amazing weather most of time, the month of June is a strange time in California. We have this rare occurrence called June Gloom,  I didn't realize till recently this only happens here on the west coast and not all over the country or even other parts of the world.  I won't get all nerdy and scientific about it, but it basically happens most of the month of June. We have major gray clouds that cover the sun, and the sky is gray and gloomy, sometimes for the entire day. It's a strange occurrence since we are known to be a sunny state most of the year. Recently I have noticed how June Gloom will affect my mood, making me feel down and even depressed. This is not a great feeling, and sometimes I am not sure how to snap out of it.
