Ever since LA-based Rad + Refined opened up shop in Chicago's West Loop just a little over a month ago, we've been gushing over its California-dreaming style. Rad's midsummer lookbook featured a bohemian-chic look that we've enjoyed wearing to countless summer barbecues and street festivals.

Bravo Rad + Refined. Even If you can't make it over to the pop-up shop at Lollapalooza this weekend, at least you can enjoy clicking through this stunning lookbook. And while your eyes will no doubt be gravitated toward the amazing pieces in this end-of-summer collection, be sure to check out the feisty makeup looks by Sharon Gault, artist to stars like Lady Gaga and Madonna.
