I love going to Corona Del Mar because of all the amazing hidden coves and crashing water in the tide pools. I had so much fun exploring the spot I frequently go to while trying out my new Toxic Sadie bikini. Hot pink=a smile on my face. I cruised with the windows down while jamming ‘Doin’ it Right’ by Daft Punk and thought about how blessed I was this season. Hope you are all having a great Holiday season so far. ;)
I love fall with all my heart even though it means the days are pretty much cut in half when the sun clocks out at 5:30 p.m. every night. I’ve been spending so much time with friends and family which is making my heart more fulfilled every day. I love this outfit because kimonos are becoming a little more popular to wear here in OC. I’ve been seeing them in so many more stores and I love it because they are fun to throw on over a sundress to spice it up and also over your bikini if you’re going to the beach. This one was sent over from Lulu’s.Get this Kimono here.

I’ve never been the biggest Britney Spears fan but her new song “Perfume” is pretty awesome. ;)
Hot and then cold, the days have been bipolar recently here in Huntington Beach. We had a good streak of sunshine days and then got hit with a few cold rainy ones. On the days the sun makes its appearance I am taking delight in hanging out in the rays. I ventured over to Corona Del Mar recently and wandered around the giant rocks. I was sent this beautiful suit from Lady Lux that fit me perfectly. The colors are a autumn neutral with a pop of purple, great for all skin colors.
Our 90s week winds down to an end but we had SO much fun giving some of our modern clothes a different spin in salute to the awesome decade. We enjoyed hearing what everyone favorite bands, trends, and TV shows were from the 90s on our Instagram (follow us).
I love baby tees because of the perfect fit they put to my body type. My closet is growing with them and they go great with long maxi skirts. Also in the 90s I loved wearing colorful bracelets so I threw on these candy colored pieces from SCMYK.
90s girls were all about shopping the Delia’s catalog. Yes, catalog. This was back before they had stores! I remember getting the catalog in the mail, bringing it to school and pouring over it at the lunch table. They had the widest pants and the cutest skater dresses.
The little black dress I’m wearing in these photos is actually from the 90s Delia’s catalog! I picked up the flannel shirt for $5 at the Rose Bowl Flea Market in Pasadena, and found the black California beanie at a flea market too. If you’re digging my knee-high Dr. Martens, you shouldshop ShoeBuy’s collection… they have a ton of different colors and great prices.
Continuing on with our 90s week I pulled one of my favorite decade styles and cruised around downtown Huntington Beach. Spaghetti strapped sundresses with a white baby tee underneath is a perfect way to prolong your summer summer wardrobe when it gets slightly chilly outside. And who can forget jelly shoes?! I rocked these when I was a kid (I had the clear sparkly pink ones) and I am so excited that they are making their way back into our closets.
Check out Jelly Beans shoes! They have solid colors, prints, transparent, and sparkles! Get the ones I’m wearing here.
Looking for a trendy online boutique to find the perfect dress? Aren’t we girls always on that search? I have a special place in my heart for Red Dress Boutique because I find myself pointing out almost every item saying “I need this!”…Not in a compulsive way, these dresses are all really a must have in your closet. Their store is also full of adorable bags, scarves, and jewelry. If you’re somewhere a little frigid in the winter you can always pair them with tights, knee socks, and cute sweaters.
Introducing… a DIY project that even the most artistically-challenged gal can conquer. You don’t need a needle, thread or even more than an hour to create the coolest clutch ever.
I’m always looking for ways to revamp the pieces I have. So, when I saw a photo of the cutest sticker clutch on WGSN, I knew it had to be copied, stat.
All you need is a collection of some cute stickers and an old clutch. If you don’t have one, you could always grab one on sale from Forever 21 or a thrift shop. Then, stick away!
Smaller stickers work the best. If you’re going to use large stickers, like the ones I used on my Bon Voyage clutch, make sure to reinforce them with some glue. I used Aleene’s Jewel-It embellishing glue. This will prevent the stickers from peeling off.
Varying the sticker sizes and texture worked out really well for me (as you can see on the hot pink clutch).
If you decide to try this project, post a link in the comments!
I’ll totally be carrying these over the next few weeks… so look out for them during my next outfit posts.
I haven’t been able to get enough of Laguna Beach recently and have been in the water more this fall then I was all summer it seems (no complaints). I try to never get used to the fact that I live so close to the beach so that I never lose sight of the beauty that I am blessed enough to be surrounded by. I still am so thrilled that I got to collaborate with Victoria’s Secret on some of my own person styles in their swimwear. If you didn’t see my first post on them you can check it out here. My collection of their bikinis is growing and I blame it on their wide selection of amazing designs!
Get this bikini here. Check out more from their Very Sexy collection here.
