Boho Fringe & Project Fab!

Top: LC by Lauren Conrad (old, similar) | Jacket: JCP | Skirt: Charlotte Russe | Bag: ℅ Marshalls | Shoes: JustFab | Sunglasses: Le Specs via Taim Boutique | Necklace: handmade by my mom! | Bracelets: Stella & Dot, Charming Charlie

If you follow me on Instagram, then you most likely saw that I was in Boston earlier this week. The reason I was there was because I am working with Marshalls! I am now a part of the Project Fab program which means that I will be working with them over the course of the next year and sharing some AWESOME finds from Marshalls.

When we were in Boston, we got to go on a little shopping spree where I bought this amazing fringe bag! Fringe is a huge trend for the upcoming fall season, so I had to get it to add to my fall wardrobe. I also love the gold studs!

Keep an eye out for my first Project Fab challenge with Marshalls coming in the next month!

Summer Lovin'

Dress: Francesca's | Bag: Target (old, similar here) | Shoes: JustFab | Hat: Forever 21 | Sunglasses: Karen Walker inspired via Poshmark | Bracelets: Mariners Church Global Bookstore

This has been one of my absolute favorite summers ever, if not my absolute favorite. After graduating from FIDM in June, I decided to not look for a job right away and relax and enjoy my summer instead. Although I've still been crazy busy, it's been nice actually having a life and not having to worry about homework or having many responsibilities. I think it's very important to love what you do and do what you love, because what would be the point of working at a miserable job where although you have a great salary, you don't get to enjoy life? 

These pictures were taken at the church that I go to in Irvine, CA, Mariners Church. I really consider this place my home. I grew up going there since I was 3 years old, and every time I'm on the campus, I am just filled with joy! After doing Rooted for the second time around this past spring, I gained a group of amazing young women that I now get to call my best friends/family. It's so important to have a sense of community in your life and a group of people to "do life" with. If you're in the Orange County area and looking for that, then check out Mariners Church! There are several campuses in OC, and so many life groups and Rooted groups.

I hope you're enjoying your summer as well!

Love & Hope in Venice Beach

Sweater: H&M | Dress: H&M | Bag: Marc by Marc Jacobs | Shoes: ShoeDazzle (similar) | Hat: Charlotte Russe (similar) | Sunglasses: ℅ zeroUV | Necklace: Compliment | Watch: Michael Kors | Bracelet: Stella & Dot

Despite the intense heat and humidity lately, I've been thinking a lot about what I'll be wearing this fall and have already picked up a few things--this sweater included. My style always turns more edgy in the fall and I wear a lot more dark colors (i.e. black, olive green, maroon/burgundy).

In the next month or so, I will be talking about some of my favorite trends from the Fall/Winter 14/15 runways and how YOU can wear them!
