Summer is here, and what I love about California is that you can wear denim all year around. I tend to live in denim shorts with a sweater, or cute white jeans with a fun top. There are so many new trends that I always tell people, stick to what you like. For me, that is a fun fray at the bottom of a jean, a cool utility looking pair, and of course denim shorts. Whatever you like to wear, dress them up or down with a fun heel or some cool sneakers.
The overall trend is back, and yes I know not everyone loves them, but if you want to do something different try this trend. This pair is from McGuire Denim, and are sexy and playful at the same time. I paired it with my favorite swimsuit from Solid and Striped, because that trend is also going strong. Last, these cute kicks from The Greats Brand, are not only fun but super funky too.
You can make white denim, like these from Mcguire work with about everything as well! The fray on the bottom makes them unique, and a simple button up and hat keep it light and summery.
We all know I love my animal print, and these shoes from Steve Madden are so dang cute.
A most certain for me, is high waist denim short. These work with a swimsuit, a sweater, and a cool blouse. The weather is so perfect in the summer to wear them all the time!
Sundry clothing in one of my favorites, and they have branched out into cool pants too. I love that these feel very utility but girly at the same time. I paired them with my new Arkyn adidas kicks, and a cool Ivy Park crop top from Nordstrom.
No matter what your style is, make sure to pick up the denim that you love and suits your personal style!
Anyone else super excited that it is already Memorial Day? I mean where does the time go? One of my favorite brands to wear in the summer is L Space Swim. Their pieces are all available at Hiptique, and needless to say, they are my absolute favorite. For so long, two piece swim was trending, but the one piece is back and better then ever. I love swimwear that has a little sex appeal, and the side of this bright orange one piece is fantastic. It reveals just enough, but you can still run around and play beach volleyball!
When it comes to layering, a simple hoodie and some denim shorts are great for me. After a beach day, I love to throw on my shades and some denim to go straight to get a quick bite near the beach. Layer some cool bracelets to add a touch of flair.
Once again, I am all for a good side and back, and this suit has both. Not to mention the lettering on the front is pretty cute. You can certainly wear this suit out at night with some jeans and a cool bootie!
Of couse I like to pair my favorite swim with some Kicks, and these from The Greats Brand are fab. Their store on Abbot Kinney is divine, and lets be honest. Who does not like a baby blue patent leather sneaker for the summer?
Wow, Memorial Day is just a week away, and I can hardly believe it. It seems like just yesterday we were celebrating the holidays. Like everyone else, I am so looking forward to summer days, full of sun, fun, and of course cute outfits. As always, my favorite boutique Hiptique has gotten several pieces in that are adorable, and I am quite frankly obsessed with! Make sure you head to my Fame Store to shop all of these looks plus so many more coming your way this summer. What else do you guys want to see trend wise?
Can we talk about printed pants mixed with a fun logo tee. This is one of my staple looks in the summer. I love to take pieces that you would not expect to go together and make them work. These floral pants from Parker are so on trend with their wide legs and fun tie waist, and the pajama style pant like this striped pair from Fame, are still big this season. A simple fun tee, elevates the look. I am loving this line Paradised, it is for sure a new favorite. Don’t forget to add some oversized mirrored shades like these from Quay Australia.
When it comes to my summer kicks, I love Vans. This pair is literally on fire. If you want to try something different, go for a pastel sneaker like these from Filling Pieces. I still love a good chunky rubber sole right now.
We all know I love a good dress in the summer. I have literally fallen in love with Karina Grimaldi. This line has so many beautiful dresses that are just my style. I love a fun dress with a bit of sex appeal like this cut out piece above. An on trend hat from Van Palma makes the look so much more Venice beach babe. For a night out, and certainly vacation, this high low dress is simply gorgeous. A flat sandal for a casual beach dinner or a wedge for a night out is the perfect addition. I love adding a fun pendant necklace for an added edge.
I do not know what happens to me during this time of the year, but my love for fashion comes out, and I become way experimental. The weather certainly helps, as we all have a little more pep in our step once winter is over. I have always been a big sneaker girl, of course, and hats come in a close second. Whether it is a ball cap, beach hat, or a trending driver hat, I have no shortage in my closet.
Festival season is here, and Coachella, summer concerts, and Stagecoach are around the corner. I love a good concert and go to plenty in the summer. My favorite is the pier concert right here in Santa Monica. Enjoying music and kicking it with friends, and a hat like this fun one from Hiptique is a must.
When it comes to casual but cool dressing, a light cotton twill pant like these from Rebecca Taylor are perfect. They are high waisted and go with everything from a dressy blouse, to a tee. I also love pairing them with a simple flip flop on the go.
It is all about the details this season. I love a pretty blouse, again this is from Rebecca Taylor. What makes it so unique is the small bit of ruffle detail. This is perfect for an evening out or a nice work meeting.
Last season I invested in a lace-up Sam Edelman that had a small chunky heel, and it is safe to say they are still trending. Find a pair like these, they are so comfortable and add a bit of funk to any look!
Well, when I have to dress up and go to a cocktail event, I always prefer a long maxi dress. One of my favorite things to do is find a dress that has an open back. There is something about this look to me that screams elegant yet sexy at the same time. When I saw this dress from Hiptique, I knew it was a must have for the summer. I have several events coming up, and this will fit nicely for many of them.
Another big factor for me is also comfort. I mean dancing five hours at a wedding is never fun in a super tight dress, am I right? Also, when going with a maxi, you can wear a dressy flat, which for me is always my preference for a long night.
The front of this dress is just as chic. I love the v-neck, and there is enough coverage that it will fit any body type without showing off too much. The lines of the dress are fun and unique, and the color will carry you through any season. Is it nuts that I am already seeing this next fall with a jacket?
A huge trend for spring are layered necklaces like this one that I found at Lulus. Even though the print is a lot, you can still add layered jewelry and make it all come together. Do not be afraid to branch out and try this trend.
Also, the beach behind me is all I am craving after a few crazy weeks of work. Summer time please come quick, am I right?
