Summer Brights: Floral shorts and Neon Blouse

Wednesday, July 16, 2014


Top- EXPRESS (color sold out, similar color here and here ) | Shorts- (similar options here and here) | Sandals- Report on SALE! ( love these and these now on sale!) | Bracelets- Itchelita Jewelry c/o here and here ; Gigglosophy c/o | Watch- Michael Kors | Necklace- Kate Spade (similar here)  |

Lately, I have been wearing loose shorts like this non stop! They are definitely my summer wardrobe staple. They are the only thing I want to wear when it gets too hot (which is like everyday). Weather forecasts predicted that temperatures would cool down...so far I have not felt the "cool down". 

All year I wait for summer because it is a "feel good" "VACAY" type of season. I love how relaxing and endless the long days can be. I also love sunny beach days and the L.A. and O.C. Country fairs (seriously, the food! #getinmytummy )! It doesn't get any better than Cali summers!! I am bias of course, but who doesn't love summers in their own home town?

What is your favorite thing about summer?

Monday Must: Shop Summer Essentials

Monday, July 14, 2014

 




Above// 1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6 // 7 // 8 // 9 // 10 // 



Happy Monday everyone!!

Today I am sharing a couple items topping my list for summer. I think these items are essential in a summer wardrobe!

Here is why...

Rompers // They are an "all in one outift" ! They are so effortless and chic. I also love there easy transition from day to night depending on accessories. There are so many beautiful prints out there, beautiful solid color options, and creative silhouettes. 

White denim // I think this a must, MUST add to your denim collection. White is a refreshing color that is perfect for summer trends. For a relaxed look try distressed styles with lots of rips. 

Gladiator Sandals // I love, love LOVE gladiator sandals. By far my favorite kind of sandal! I especially love gladiator sandals that lace up. My oldest pair of shoe is a tan lace up gladiator sandal (I've had them for over 5 years!) Year after year gladiator sandals are always "on trend". This year knee high sandals are a huge trend (I especially love this nude one)!   

Colorful Clutches // There are so many cute options for clutches. They vary in pattern, color, embroidery, and shape. Creative designs are a perfect pop to any summer outfit!

Hobo Satchel // I love the versatility of a structured hobo handbag. It can easily be paired with casual outfits or dressier ones to create an effortless bohemian chic look. 

Gold Accessories // These are jewelry staples that can easily be paired with other accessories. Classic shapes will match just about every other accessories you already own.

Timeless Sunglasses // When investing in sunglasses (because lets be honest, a good pair of sunnies can cost quite a bit of $$$ ), it is important to find a shape that will be wearable season after season. Aside from the classic aviator , cat eye sunglasses are also a very common style. I personally, love this style because it is a subtle "cat eye" that is quickly becoming timeless.

Statements: Neon Blouse and Colorful necklace

Friday, July 11, 2014


Top- EXPRESS ( color sold out, similar style here) | Jeans- GUESS ( other options here and here) | Heels- Prima Donna ( similar here and  here) | Bag- Loft ( similar here) | Sunnies- Prada | Necklace- T+J Designs c/o | Watch- Michael Kors | Bracelet- Itchelita Jewelry c/o |


Lately, I have been wearing a lot of casual outfits. So today, since it's friday, I am sharing a more dressy look, by dressy I mean I am wearing heels :). It is no secret I love bright colors, so this neon blouse and statement necklace combo was a no brainer. I've had this neon top for over a year now, and is till one of my favorites. The simple silhouette is extremely versatile! I like to invest in solid color tops because I feel like I can get the most use out of them and are by far the most timeless pieces of clothing. Another closet staple, especially for summer, is white denim. I love wearing white when it is hot, because it is much more refreshing. I am all about 

TGIF! Happy weekend!!

Summer Attire: Camo Shorts and Gladiator Sandals

Thursday, July 10, 2014

 Top- Blush Boutique c/o | Shorts- Velvet Heart c/o | Sandals- Zigi Girl (similar here and here ) | Bag- Vince Camuto (similar here) | Watch- Michael Kors (similar here and similar on SALE here)| Bracelet- Itchelita Jewelry c/o | Necklace- Bip and Bop c/o here and here

Hi everyone! Today I am sharing a look that incorporates two of my favorite pieces: these gladiator sandals and these camo shorts. I previously shared a couple looks on Instagram with these shorts ( here and here). However, they had not made an official appearance on the blog soo... taa daaaa! 

Lately, it has been to hot to wear clothes- yes, too hot for clothes hehe. But seriously, most days I can't even stand wearing makeup! Its fine to be indoors, but as soon as I step outside it's like a slap across the face with dry heat. I see many of my favorite bloggers wearing layers ( cardigans, blazers, etc.) and I seriously can not believe my eyes! Don't get me wrong I love summer, but lately this heat has me day dreaming of Fall. Can't wait to be able to layer again! ( And not just jewelry)

Trying new things: Sunset45 Little Luxuries Box

Tuesday, July 8, 2014

Top- Velvet Heart 

Hi everyone, today I am sharing a little of The Little Luxuries Box from Sunset45. The Little Luxuries Box is a monthly subscription for $30 + $5 shipping; you get $100 worth of items every month. The interesting thing about this program is that not every box is the same. They create 4-5 unique combinations with each month's trends. So you will always be surprised with your little luxuries!! 

The box is also a great way to challenge and refine your personal style. For example, my box came packed with different pairs of earrings. I for one, don't wear too many elaborate pieces of earrings. However, I loved the challenge to incorporate them into my daily outfits. The times I have worn these pieces, it was completely unplanned. I laid them out where I usually have my jewelry and enjoyed wearing the unique shapes of these tribal pieces.  

The beauty products were also very fun to try out! I loved trying a new shade of nail polish (because lately I am sticking to pink or blue). When I saw my box came with a deep plum color I was ecstatic! The blush was a light shade with a slight shimmer and the lip color was a light glossy orange. Both were subtle colors, that are perfect for simple summer makeup! 

What came in my Little Luxuries box....

  • "Veru" Drop Earings
  • "Charm & Feather" Duo Earings
  • "Tribal Prep" Bracelets
  • OPI in "OPI Scores A Goal"
  • NYX BG in "Peach Cobbler"
  • Hello Waffle Blush
  • 7th Heaven Natural Mask (not photographed) 

Sunset45 has announced this months theme : STARRY-EYED!! I am very excited to see what July Little Luxuries boxes have to offer!! If you decided to snag a box for your self you can share your goodies with #sunset45.

If you are interested you can sign up here.  You can sign up for the monthly membership (Lavish or Classic box), the One-Time Box, or the Editor's pick!

Kimonos for Everyday Summer Wear

Wednesday, July 2, 2014

Top- old (similar here) | Kimono- Blush Boutique c/o | Jeans- GUESS (similar here and love this ripped option) | Necklaces- Bip and Bop c/o ; Purple Peridot c/o | Bracelet- Sterling Forever c/o | Sandals- Report ( love these ) | Sunnies- old (similar here)


How long have fashion Kimonos been around for?

 ...because I feel like I have noticed (by noticed I mean super obsessed about) Kimonos for the first time this year. They one of the newest trends that is quickly becoming my favorite. There are so many beautiful prints and creative fringe/trim out there for Kimonos. I personally love the longer kimonos- they seem to slim the body and also look more boho chic (in my opinion). Today's kimono is from Blush Boutique - it has a gorgeous python print and colorful trim at the bottom. The colorful detail is my favorite thing!  Since my outfit is neutral based, it adds a subtle pop of color.

To accessorize I kept my jewelry to a minimum, with few rings and bracelets. I am a huge statement jewelry junkie! However, a huge necklace would probably be to overwhelming for the print in the kimono. Soooo... to achieve the 'statement necklace' effect I layered smaller dainty pieces. I am wearing two of my favorite necklaces ( I seriously wear this combo everyday! I highly recommend these two!!)
