Fences were made as boundaries to be broken down and busted into – this week I’m breaking fashion boundaries by not wearing pants haha and just rocking lingerie with some knee high socks and a flannel tied around my waist rated PG for the kiddies. I’ve never believed in pants unless its freezing outside and this outfit definitely demonstrates that no pants are the best pants. This weekend I had the pleasure of spontaneously meeting, pseudo-hiking and shooting with my girl Christy. We talked about it on Saturday and met up the next day – unfortunately, I forgot the outfits that I had prepared at home, but we worked with some of the pieces that I did bring and the results were amazing. In the photos above, I’m wearing a coral pink bralette with polka dot detailing from Forever 21 and wrapped a black and white plaid flannel button-up from Hurley around my waist.

My crystal tennis bracelet can be found here – it’s one of my favorite pieces to wear because it’s subtly sparkly and goes with all my outfits whether it be casual or dressy. These hoop earrings are not your standard round hoops, but they have a unique and edgy wave to them and are decorated with clear crystals which can be purchased here.

Flower Power

DSC07006_Edit

I’ve always liked midi skirts, but felt that it cut off my legs at a weird place and made me look shorter than I actually am – but this dress was too affordable and too cute to pass up. The floral print on the skirt is very Spring and the cut of the skirt has a unique line to it. I wore this dress with a simple and extremely comfortable pair of nude low wedges from Forever 21.

The top of the dress is made of a knitted crochet top so it’s very fitted and since it was a solid black color I decided to pair it with the Full Bloom silver statement necklace because of the subtle flowers and crystal accents – it slightly elevates the outfit from being casual to a little more dressy with that little extra sparkle.

These leather wrap beaded bracelets come in so many fun colors and it’s a great present to give to friends because it’s so easy to wear and matches with basically everything. Choose from two-wrap, three-wrap or five-wrap this bracelet looks perfect stacked with all of your other favorite arm candy pieces or even worn by itself.

Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

C40A1441 C40A1429 C40A1438

 This year I had to celebrate Mother’s Day with my mom a little early because on the actual day of Mother’s Day she’ll be away on vacation with her sister in Europe. My friend Brian did some quick Mother Daughter portraits for us which I will be printing for my mom as a Mother’s Day gift.

I also got her this adorable pendant necklace that says “I love you to the Moon & Back” from Baubles & Gems. It’s sweet, simple and perfect for everyday wear.

My mom like most women loves flowers, so a bouquet of flowers although may be a bit cliche, it’s still always a good idea. Peonies are our favorite flowers – but it’s not always so readily available in LA so sometimes I prefer to gift her with fresh potted flowers or air plants because I know that they’ll last longer than a week!

Your mothers should have told you at least once in your lifetime that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. So, why not make her some yummy breakfast? I found these delicious healthy pancake recipes on Pinterest with gluten-free and vegan options for every type of Mom out there and can’t wait to try them out.

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!

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.

Silver Obsessions

img1803img1799 img1791

Obsessed with how fun and creative this Silver Shoulder Chain is – there’s so many ways you can wear it and style this simple yet unique accessory. Here I wore it over a White Lace Bralette that I got from Forever 21 a while back and a pair of cream colored floral shorts that I thrifted back when I was visiting in Toronto. That thrift store had this awesome deal where they give you a large plastic bag and you get to go in a little sectioned off area where you can stuff as much as you can in that bag and pay $20CAD. My rose-colored sunglasses have been my favorite pair of shades to wear this whole month because not only does it protect from UV rays but it puts a bright pink tint on everything I see.

I feel like I’m seeing large silver statement necklaces everywhere! It dresses up any casual outfit with a touch of sass and ethnic interest. Inspired by the bohemian vibes of summer fashion – this silver statement piece is one of my favorite pieces to wear when an outfit seems a tad plain and I want to spice it up a little. Above, I’m wearing an all black outfit – a cold-shoulder top and distressed shorts both from Forever 21. The ear cuffs I’m wearing come in silver and gold colors and you can pick from a crystal detailing or a pearl detailing. It requires no piercing so there’s no commitment or pain and you still get to wear this edgy accessory!
