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!


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.

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.

Spring Baubles & Boiling Point

DSC06725_EditThis Crystal Floral Statement Necklace is sooo Spring! It was like it was made for this high waisted floral skater skirt from Forever 21. I paired it with a bright red-orange solid crop top. I love when the weather gets warmer because that means shorts and skirts all week long.


Even though it was in the high 90s today, we decided to visit one of our favorite hot pot spots – Boiling Point for some hot pot. We ordered four beef hot soups – 3 mild and 1 non-spicy and it was really good! Definitely satisfied my hot pot cravings for a while.

Of course we had to top our meal off with some macaron ice cream sandwiches – I ordered green tea and my brother ordered the vanilla one. Soooo good!

Weekend of Fun at the Mall


If you haven’t heard yet – Baubles n Gems is going to be a vendor at the OC Night Market at OC Fair and Event Center in Costa Mesa next weekend May 8-10 which is also Mother’s Day Weekend! Treat your mamas out for a cultural experience at an asian-themed night market with all sorts of delicious and interesting food that you can’t get anywhere else, local artists, music, entertainment and fun for the whole family. We’ll be offering a handpicked selection of all of our best selling jewelry items and new arrivals like these colorful leather wrap semi-precious stones beaded bracelets.


Pulling out my Chloe shoulder bag out from the closet – this camel colored purse goes with all my favorite summer outfits. My reflective sunglasses and acid-washed high waisted denim cutoff shorts are from Forever 21. Picked up this cute pirate-looking cold-shoulder semi-sheer top from Abercrombie – at first I wasn’t too sure about how I would wear it and thought it would make me look poofy because of the elastic part at the bottom but pairing it with some fitted denim shorts seems to make the whole outfit not seem to fluffy.

DSC06696_Edit DSC06698_Edit DSC06699_EditAt the mall I was able to visit my little brother at work and if you haven’t gotten the chance to visit one of the Zoogamo locations to ride these adorable and fun motorized stuffed animals then you’re totally missing out! It’s not only for children and there’s so many cute animals you can choose from like a panda, the Pink Panther, a reindeer, an elephant, the cow that I rode and many more! Zoogamo also carries a variety of fun toys and activities like this clay figurines that you can DIY or Lego zoo animals and this stuffed elephant that matched perfectly with my Elephant Midi Ring.


Hope everyone had a fun and relaxing weekend!
