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.

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.

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

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.
