can i take your picture?: alex

while on el paseo today, i spotted this boho chic fashionista and instantly knew she had to be on the blog. she exuded the spirit of a socal girl with her free people “duster” that covered her white tank and jean shorts, and to top her look off she threw on a red floppy fedora. she showed her personal style off while remaining simplistic with minimal pieces. 

alex themm is a young model from the o.c. who was visiting the coachella valley with her mom and two friends. if you can’t tell already… alex is a young supermodel in the making!

4th of july!

This year for the 4th of july, my family and i attended the palm desert fireworks celebration! it was an event in our civic center park with a swing band playing until the big fireworks show.

we parked at a nearby shopping center and took air conditioned shuttles to the park… so fancy! 
My mom shaved the side of Brandy’s hair… it’s sooo cute! 

We got a great spot right on the water! 

 We enjoyed the day exploring the park and enjoying the festivities. then it was time for the fireworks show!!

happy independence day!

summer style

 for my trip to santa monica, i wanted to wear something light and summer-y. (yes, i know that’s not a real word.) the night before, i made a quick trip to target and found these black & white polka dot pants. i love how they have a wide leg to them and are perfect for summer.

mismatched & mixed prints!

last week, i had my first conference call as a shop stylist. so i had to go into work for the call. i wanted to still look fashionable, during the call. i wanted to mix prints with my black & white polka dot jeans with my windowpane print top from kate spade. i love the contrast on the prints together. this look resembles somewhat of a look that solange knowles would wear.

baby hair & dookie braids!

it’s spring time…now it’s time to bring back the dookie braids. if you don’t remember, i had the hairstyle about two years ago. how do you like it in the bun style this time around?
(i used the word time a lot, right?)
well i had my floorset at work and check out my look.

three ways to wear it!

one of my roles as shop stylist is to have top knowledge in the brand and to be able to style pieces in various ways. we have this activity called “three ways to wear it”, where you choice one piece and style it three different ways. it shows your creativity & also gives you a chance to practice what you can show to customers. i choice our broome street denim jacket as my first piece. see how i styled it below:

which look do you like best?

lace & wedges!

 for tachevah, i wanted to wear this green lace top of my sisters that i haven’t had a chance to wear yet. since were already at 90 degrees here in the desert i just knew it would be hot. so i paired the lace top with the denim shorts that i made during my first diy project. then i added my navy target wedges with green detailing.

Blue Magic!

This was my look for our day at Morderism Week. I styled my look around my black sneaker wedges, because I rarely get to wear them and wanted to for the comfort. My blue “sweat pants” added the right amount of color to my look with my black PARIS top.

Kept having people walk through my photoshoot. ugh! 

I was so ready to be done taking pictures! 

My past looks via the mirror!

With being busy, I haven’t been able to get decent picture of any of my looks. I have gotten a few selfies (pictures you take of yourself with your camera or phone!) at work in downtime. Enjoy my few selfies! 

 Absolutely loving these new floral jeans that I got from work! My new obsession for the spring & summer. 🙂
