California Summer Style

Last week marked the official beginning of summer, International Surfing Day, and all sorts of exciting things happening all around the globe telling us that summer is here for us! Yes!

I love getting a great deal and right now there are some nice sales going on at both A &F and Hollister…

It’s just wonderful to put on something pretty and casual and enjoy the season…

Summer Tips:

~Always wear sunscreen and remember to wear sunglasses to prevent wrinkles and sun damage

~Drink a lot of water and stay hydrated for your skin (I also love green tea!)

~For sexy summer beach hair, keep your hair conditioned

~Don’t be structured in your everyday style-stay pretty, sexy, cool for a casual look. To be less “beachy”, mix and match with different styles to update your look (more preppy and structured)

No matter where you are in the world (even those in the Southern Hemisphere!), enjoy it…it’s officially SUMMER for us!

Texas Music Water

When I go to Texas soon for a modeling shoot, I know what water I’ll be drinking….Texas Music Water! I’d like to highlight this charity because I LOVE music and actually know the people behind this organization…its legit and they are truly dedicated to supporting “the continuation of inspiring music and the musicians that create it”.

Based in Austin, Texas (MAJOR music hub), they really have a heart for children and supporting their musical dreams. I love that they give instruments to children, support music programs and support struggling artists. They do so much and you can read more on their website:   www.texasmusicwater.com

I’m hoping that soon they can expand their organization to reach musicians everywhere…but let’s help out in any way we can. We need to drink water anyways so why not drink amazing tasting water and help out kids? 🙂

My severe lack of musical instrument talent could send anyone running haha, but there are those out there who are blessed with musical gifts…let’s give them a chance.

Find them on Facebook or visit their website www.texasmusicwater.com

The Dipped Hem Trend

Ever since last summer, this trend has been gaining momentum. Its even more popular this season!

I love how this trend can be so feminine and use floaty fabrics like silk and chiffon…its a beautiful look that is both girly and sexy if you choose the right dress or skirt for you…

To pull off this look though, it’s important to remember that the less contrast between hem lines is more flattering on most body types so be sure to try different ones on. When there is a severe contrast between the front and back hem, it’s a little harder to pull off. To look more streamlined, stick with solid colors and then add great accessories…and of course, fabulous heels or great summer sandals;)

I got a beautiful dipped hem dress from TopShop and so far it has been a hit! You can find your dipped hem dress almost anywhere now…

TIP: Combine this trend with something more structured from the Louis Vuitton Resort Collection 2011 (my fav!) as an update…

Mixing and matching pieces is a great way to make the most of your wardrobe!

Fashion Friday

Happy Friday everyone! These are the two recent looks from Rosie Huntington-Whiteley that I would like to highlight. Both looks are totally different but both are gorgeous!

I just love her effortless style…she always looks so polished! Hmmm I think I’m going to get these two outfits…

Being the geeky girl that I secretly am 😉 I will be just hanging out with my puppy, going to the movies, listening to the “Call Me Maybe” song haha and maybe getting some sun this weekend…

Hope everyone has a lovely weekend!

Stay tuned for next week…

Represent! :)

Ok so I’ve always liked MANGO but now I officially love this line;) Props to them for this shirt haha;)

Found at the Fashion Show Mall in Las Vegas yesterday. www.mango.com

Fashion Trend: Aqua

I’m loving the trend of this beautiful color this season! The great thing about this color is that it looks pretty on all skin tones and it compliments well with other colors and in different ways…

These NY runway looks show that its the trend for the season! (Credit: http://frockcandyblog.com/2011/09/19/the-colors-of-nyfw-spring-2012/

Love this set! http://threesixtyecotique.com/2012/05/aqua-aqua-aqua/

You can vary with different shades like the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton did…her dress is gorgeous!!

I’ve always loved this shade 🙂

Some shades that this color pairs well with: Pink ~ Orange/Coral ~ Brown ~ Black ~ Yellow

And Diane Kruger got it right on May 16th in Cannes! Here she is wearing a silk aqua Giambattista Valli Couture design. She paired the one-shoulder gown with silver jewelry and a Judith Leiber streamline frosted Lucite clutch.

And nothing is complete without amazing heels;)
