Summer is finally upon us and what better way to welcome the 95+ degree weather than with wearing all black errthang. #justkidding I rarely get the chance to dress up; generally, you’ll catch me in a loose tank and shorts so I took the opportunity to wear something a little out of the norm, a little more dressy than what I’d usually be found in.

It was a pleasure meeting Sam and exploring the arts district in Downtown LA with him, scoping out complementing locations to shoot the different outfits that I brought. So happy that we’ve just restocked in our Double Pearl Earrings. I absolutely love how classy and elegant they look and can upgrade any outfit. B&G also has a new line of fun, stackable vegan leather bracelets that you can mix and match!

My Favorite Styles!

IMG_4124

One of my favorite outfits is the one you see above – something that you are most likely to see me in on a typical day. Comfortable and simple – a loose fitted tank top, some distressed cut off jean shorts and some black booties that will dress up this casual look. I’m also wearing my favorite double sided pearl earrings from Baubles n Gems which adds a sense of classy sophistication to any outfit.

White button-down shirts should be a staple in every girl’s closet. It’s definitely one of my personal favorites. You can dress it up and wear it business casual to the office with some pants or dress it down with a fun and playful printed skort and wear it out on a day out on the weekend like the one I have in this photo.

Stripes are one of my favorite prints to wear, but it’s also a tricky print because sometimes horizontal prints will make you like wider than you actually are and no one wants to look fat! This vertical stripe mini dress is made of a great fabric that isn’t too thin and won’t fly around when the wind blows. The tie at the waist cinches in my waistline creating an illusion of a smaller waist.

What girl does not like getting dolled up? One of my favorite styles is my little black dress – this black floral lace dress is perfectly fitted, yet not too tight so it won’t show if you have a little dessert on a date night out. Pairing a little black dress with a statement necklace makes me feel glam and feminine.

Damn, Nicole. Back at it again with those distressed jean shorts! I told you they were one of my favorites – here, I paired my favorite denim staple here with a simple black flowy crop top.

Crop tops in the summer time is one of my favorite items of clothing I like to incorporate in warm weather outfits, once it gets hotter than 85 degrees – the belly button is coming out. This basic black denim shorts is also something that I recycle often in the summer because of how easily it matches with everything.

I was recently inspired by Social Print Studio to create a little lookbook with some of my favorite styles and outfits. With their collection of photo books, it’s a great way to display some of your favorite photos of your outfits! Don’t leave all those fun photos of you and your friends stuck in your phones – bring them to life! Social Print Studio’s photo books make great coffee table books for you to showcase all your favorite memories.

Feeling like Fall

CW002-3

It’s starting to get a little chilly in LA, just a little bit. During the day it’s still quite warm, but once the sun goes down – it gets breezy and cool enough for me to put on a sweater and a scarf. Daylight savings was just a few weeks ago, but my body still hasn’t adjusted to the time change. I’ve been feeling super lazy and tired at all hours and taking naps all weekend. Good thing my Dreamcatcher Watch and matching bracelets are making all my Autumn outfits look super cute and helping me keep track of time. It’s the perfect accessory because it’s an arm candy bundle all in one – and it makes perfect holiday gifts.

Getting cozy, bundling up and layering are my favorite hobbies when it gets chilly making infinity scarves my favorite thing to wear during the Fall/Winter season. Baubles & Gems now offers the softest and warmest infinity scarves in their shop along with the newest and cutest fashion jewelry. Plaid is a Fall classic and it goes amazing with jeans and a white tee.

Aside from cute accessories and fall inspiration, I also finally tried the Kogi truck again and it was better than I remembered. The first time I had it – I remember having to wait a really long time and the tacos didn’t live up to the wait time or the hype, but this time I came across the truck in Pasadena a little after the lunch rush hour as I was on my way home and there was no line at all. The short rib and spicy pork tacos were my favorite.

It was so much fun having a mini pomeranian party out at Pan Pacific Park with my new friend Ami and seeing my old friend Ryan. We snapped a few photos of just my casual little outfit for a day at the park – comfort is always key when planning a day with Sachi because he always wants to be picked up and I’m always running around after him. These flash tattoos are also one of my favorite accessories to wear this summer season when showing a bit of skin it’s fun to add a little sparkle on my shoulder or arms. I have also been wearing this turquoise stone choker necklace on repeat because it goes with everything! It’s so unique and the summer-y colors are perfect to wear with denim and all my casual outfits.

This is the first two-piece matching set that I’ve owned from Style Moi and I looove it – the banana print all over is so fun and cute; this outfit also came with a matching green bunny headband. Super adorable! I ventured with Christy to Fullerton and she showed me this cute little wall of greenery and cafe where we were able to snap some photos of this outfit. I paired this outfit with these bright green espadrille wedge sandals that I purchased a few summers ago from H&M.

Swing Swing Dress from Shop Tobi || Crystal Drop Earrings and Bracelet from Baubles n Gems || Gladiator Heels from Breckelle’s

Photos by Christy Truong (@ohitschristy)

Always a fun time shooting with my girl Christy – this time we ventured into the land of tall trees in buckets and got some gorgeous shots of this blue Swing Swing dress. Being a lover of simple outfits, this dress makes looking cute a breeze because of its convenient pockets and lightweight fabric it’s not only comfortable but trendy and easy to wear. These gladiator heels on the other hand are not so simple – the look it adds to the outfit is casually edgy but it takes forever to strap myself into. Of course I had to accessorize with my favorite tennis bracelet from B&G and these vibrant blue Crystal Flower Drop Earrings. Happy Monday and I hope everyone had a fun and relaxing weekend!
