Give a Little

I hope you are all having a happy December so far and ready to continue on my quest for awesome gift ideas for your friends or family (or maybe just for you)! Buyamba is a thoughtful company that sells handmade footwear and contributes their time to helping displaced women and children in Uganda by creating jobs by the sales of their products.  In the spirit of the holidays shopping with Buyamba is the perfect way to give more. They sent me over a lovely pair of Moccasin’s that I packed with me during my trip to Denver. I had so much fun kicking around the leaves and loved how comfy they were. Style Smoothie is proud to partner up with this company and continue the spread of support and encouragement for those of us who deserve a better chance in life.

I’ve Got the Time

 

The holidays have arrived and I am on the prowl for awesome gift ideas this season. I’ve actually been stumbling upon some really cool ideas that I would put on my own wish list. Up at the top of that list is a new watch because whether your a guy or a girl it’s the perfect item. Recently Neff sent me over this black and white Duece Watch and I was immediately obsessed. Neff also makes the BEST beanies so be sure to throw in a few of those during your holiday shopping. I snapped these in a park while venturing around one of my favorite cities, Chicago.

& Beach

Ahh, it’s hard to complain about anything when I am in my favorite bikini, hanging by the pool, and enjoying a frozen drink. I don’t see the trend of Brazilian bikinis slowing down anytime soon so if you still don’t have one I suggest checking out Bossa and Beach! I got to meet the founder, Vanessa, in the midst of a long boarding sesh while in Manhattan Beach and she brought along with her a few bikinis for me to try out. I loved the yellow bandeau top and it’s bright pop of color.

Let Me Tell You a Story

There once was a girl who loved cutesy boutiques so much. One day she stumbled upon Irene’s Story, a chic little store in the heart of downtown Huntington Beach. With all it’s charm and all her delight, she felt as if it was the perfect fit.

Hi all, going off a recent post about this fab boutique I come to you with my next outfit post from Irene’s Story. I found a farming black and white floral dress and grabbed one of their flowy shirts to try on over it, I was smitten! I enjoy shopping here because the store is right by the beach and in the middle of all the HB chaos it brings a little shabby feel to the area (there threads are also wallet friendly!) I strolled roof top at the Hollywood tower with Cass and we shot this outfit before grabbing dinner at Franklin & Co. What do you all think?

Roses in the Wild

I enjoy summer so much, especially going on walks with my mother around the neighborhood. We enjoy the beauty in the backyard and point out the importance of every flower. If we could walk around all day just exploring then I’m sure we would.

In Huntington Beach right downtown there is a cute little boutique called Irene’s Story that I stumbled upon and really loved. Their clothes are trendy with a boho feel while being reasonably priced compared to the other boutiques around them. This dress is perfect for a summer night out, to church, tea with your friends, or walking around with your mom 🙂 Be sure to stay tuned for more outfit posts featuring Irene’s Story!Processed with VSCOcam with t1 preset Processed with VSCOcam with t1 preset Processed with VSCOcam with t1 preset Processed with VSCOcam with t1 presetProcessed with VSCOcam with f2 presetProcessed with VSCOcam with t1 preset

San Juan Sand Fun

Hello, loves. There is something to me that is so endearing when it comes to exploring new places. I think it reminds me of when I was a kid with my brothers, pretending everything we found was a new land that needed to be explored…Lucky for me I still have that sense of adventure and become completely humbled when I find these new lands I’ve never discovered. San Juan Capistrano definitely has some unique beauty to it where I tossed on my Vestique sundress and channeled some inner hippie vibes. Check out all their other amazing clothes perfect for all your summer adventures 😉_MG_5815 copy _MG_5836 copy _MG_5879 copy _MG_5821 copy _MG_5918 copyxokris

Daydreamin’

 

Daydreamin of how close summer is I can taste it. I threw on my Supercolour crop and Wonderland Honolulu shorts for a perfect combo of California class. I also found a great top from Wonderland Honolulu that goes great over a bikini with it’s sheer back and fun front pattern. If you’re looking for your new summer season threads hit up both of these stores and prepare to fall in love!

From Dusk till Dawn

I have been seeing wrap dresses everywhere lately and wanted one ever since I stumbled upon them when I was browsing dresses on the internet with one of my best friends. I was particularly excited when Shanna’s Threads sent over this royal blue maxi wrap dress. The material is so comfortable and you can pretty much wear this dress anywhere. I also paired this dress with my black booties from BC Footwear.

Put this One on Replay

So, as soon as I saw this awesome bikini from Toxic Sadie I knew it was made for me. It’s psychedelic pattern and sexy front cross tie with embellished bottoms were calling my name. I had a fun jam session in Laguna Beach while enjoying the new suit…(It even comes with caution tape for how hott you will look 😉 ) Check out their other swimwear too! Affordable luxury is my favorite.VS_round2_0001 VS_round2_0005 VS_round2_0018 VS_round2_0020 VS_round2_0022
