Just as quickly as my love blossomed for the “extreme” high low trend last year, the appeal faded out faster than I can spelled a-s-y-m-m-e-t-r-i-c-a-l… But somehow, this look always seem to find a way back into my life. I can’t deny, the look is so feminine, flirty, a bit edgy/sexy and effortless all meshed up together in one little ball. This Siho dress is the perfect summer to fall transition for me and I love how comfortable it is. I wore it lounging around the house and for outdoor, I paired it with my favorite booties, a denim jacket to give it some shape and emerald T&J Designs earrings for a pop of color! xo

I love my short shorts denim cut offs but sometimes it’s great to just kick back in loose fitting over-sized shorts. What’s awesome about these is they are loose and comfy yet sits snug on your waist. It’s so easy to throw on and run errands in or just lounge around the house. The best thing is I can put on a pair of heels and call it a night out!

I actually made these shorts for my booth at the SJ Jazz festival where I was a vendor (reviews and my opinion on that soon :)… Have you ever tried making something with the intention of selling but ended up keeping about 5-6-7-8 of them? Yeah, that’s kind of what happened here…But a girl can’t never have enough denim cut offs right?

Garden Party

Full on floral has a reputation for being a Spring & Summer print, but with such ruby red velvety colors mixed with gray tones, this mysterious print seems like the perfect transition into Fall. Of course I’m nowhere near ready to part ways with the warm sunny days (I haven’t even got my tan yet!), so I made this outfit with that in mind…Combining the open back details, crop top and light weight material that’s instantly cool against the skin. This outfit is pretty much perfect for day or night, summer or fall and best of all, it can be mixed with pretty much anything!

Remember those Hervé Léger (and various affordable versions) bandage dresses and skirts that were seen all over the internet, runways, and on celebrities a few years ago? It’s been 3 years and I’m still seeing these bandage styles in stores. The slim fitting trend that hugs a woman’s curves and shows off a feminine silhouette was a staple in fashion then and I think it’s quietly trying to make a comeback.

To be honest, I’m not usually a fan of trends that’s over done to death (ah hem: Zara skorts), but these bandage styles are so sleek, sexy and a classic that has proven to last the test of the fashion trend life span.

I’m loving this nude skirt I had on when paired with white for a clean and fresh summer look, but I’m also loving all the bright colors and prints as well!

I love pink and green, but together there’s something magnetic and I can’t seem to get enough of combining them. Since they are both bright hues, I wanted to neutralized the look by pairing nude heels and a nude bag which has a subtle print that adds texture to this outfit. These are my happy colors, my color therapy! :)
