Still in my black and white phase with this Manon Baptiste color block top from Navabi. This time I really felt like adding some color with these pink drop triangle earrings. Can we discuss this clear clutch I found? I call it my money bag. haha. Really in love with clear clothes and accessories. I chose to take a few pics with the shirtWhenever I decide to take pictures to put on my blog, the location is really key. I want my surroundings to really compliment my outfit. I was thinking of a way to add more color to this outfit so snapped some pictures in front of a fill in by graffiti artist Klaer.

Like I said in the previous post, here is the arrival of the final SwimSuitsForAll pictures. Really love how all of these came out. I’ll be sure to do a post tomorrow with the final product shots. For those who have been under a rock, Gabi’s capsule collection is finally here and available to purchase. I heard it’s selling out in certain sizes fast so you better get on it! Her theme for this shoot was the movie Spring Breakers. My favorite part was wearing pastel pink ski masks with unicorns on them while holding giant water guns. haha! Her line is such a hit and I couldn’t be happier for her. It’s been featured so far in a ton of publications such as Glamour Magazine, MTV, and Refinery 29! Be sure to buy your favorite piece at SwimSuitsForAll!

I had such a fun time shooting Gabi’s capsule collection for SwimsuitsForAll a few weeks back. Here are some behind the scene shots by Lydia Hudgens. I really love this cosmic overthrow. Everyone at the shoot was incredibly sweet. It was seriously one of my favorite shoots ever. The hair stylist, make up artist, photographer, and clothing stylist were such amazing and talented people to work with. You guys are going to love all the swimsuits. There are still more photos to come to keep an eye out! You will be able to purchase all of Gabi’s capsule collection on May 15th at SwimSuitsForAll!

I was featured in Bella Magazine April issue and answered a few questions they had for me.

I’ve always been a big fan of activewear as high fashion. I got these bottoms from Addition Elle while I was in Canada and decided to cut them into little shorts which are perfect for Spring because they’re in trend. Altering clothes to fit your body is always the way to go. These plus size bottoms are drawstring so it’s really good for different body shapes. Countless times I’ve told you I’m in love of black and white so it’s not a shock that I’ve been wearing it constantly. I had a shoot today with Refinery 29 which was super fun. Pictures will be up June 1st so I’ll keep you guys posted! I don’t think I’ll ever stop wearing statement sunglasses. Ever since I cut my hair, I’ve been into wearing brolic earrings and a lot of eyewear for some reason.

Monochromatic. One of my favorite ways to dress. I really love all white. For the longest time I use to think it wasn’t that flattering on me but really have fallen in love with it over the years. My moto jacket is from Mynt 1792 and is basically everything. The gold zippers and belted sides gave me life. I paired the moto jacket with an ASOS 90′s crop top and a bodycon skirt. Can we discuss these heels for a second? I’m always afraid I’m going to dirty white shoes but desperately needed these platforms with the teal transparent heel. I wore these construction glasses two years ago but busted them back out to go with these heels. Hope everyone has a lovely May! Photo credit thanks to Kellie Brown!

Florals are pretty expected every Spring so I like to switch it up a bit. This lace dress from Spiegel is ideal for Spring. This dress is cut short but is not too revealing and it has a silk-like lining underneath. What I love most is how thick the lace is. Spiegel really is couture quality at everyday prices. They have a ton of Spring pieces and I’m lucky enough to get a 10% discount code for all my followers. To receive the 10% discount, use ‘Spiegel13′ while checking out!
