CONFIDENCE IS KEY IN YOUR BIKINI

It’s Bikini season as summer is right around the corner, are you ready?!

This year I actually felt ready to hit the beach as I vacationed in Maui. Here's the secret to feeling ready...

My greatest secret for looking bikini ready is confidence. Honestly, I haven’t always had the confidence that I want to have, I am just as human as anyone else, so I have made a choice to do something about it. It wouldn't be fair of me to not share with you how I gained this dose of healthy confidence, so here we go...

Time to get really honest… I have always been active and cared about being in shape and working out, but I had horrible eating habits. I would skip meals, and end up pigging out on junk food. There was nothing fun about that, but for some reason I thought it was the way to do …

My Everyday Necklace

Favorites

my EVERYDAY necklace

Discount Code for YOU below!
 

When it comes to jewelry I am simple. I love dressing up and putting on all of my "dressy jewels", but when it comes to my everyday jewelry you'll find me wearing a simple necklace and maybe simple stud earrings. I thought I'd share with you my most recent favorite "everyday" necklace!

I have been a long time admirer of the Dogeared necklaces and just recently treated myself to one! I gave it to myself as an early birthday present, but really I didn't need an excuse to buy myself something that I could wear everyday. These necklaces are so dainty I mix it with other metals and layer with other statement pieces, it blends in perfectly, I'm not kidding when I say I wear it all the time.

These necklaces are great gifts, not only for yourself but for your bestie's birthday, a bride to be, or even a new mom.

FALL FASHION IN THE AIR

I love this time of year; the crisp air, the leaves changing colors, and the fall fashion! I love the hats, the boots, the jackets, and the scarves! Isn't that funny? I look forward to this time of year partly for my wardrobe, but I know that I'm not alone!

Here are a few of my favorite looks that I've been wearing lately that are just perfect for the fall...

even in California!

**

This dress is darling. It is so feminine and flirty. I love the pleats in the bottom half of the dress, and the leather detailing on the the shoulders. I think this dress would be adorable with some dark tights or knee highs and boots!

I'm absolutely loving this black dress. Flattering, comfortable, and simple! You can dress this  one up or down, and accessorize in several different ways. I loved this dress with my favorite pair of fall boots, and …

FASHION AT THE RACES...

Every summer the Del Mar Horse racing season begins, kicking it off with "Opening Day". People come from all over to Del Mar (in San Diego County) to attend this big day of flashy dresses and big hats... oh, and horses! The day is a pretty big deal... actually, really big deal! I started planning my Opening Day outfit probably a month in advance, but I bet you that is nothing to what most of the women put into what they will be wearing. I mean, really, you should see the hats and the rest of the ensemble on some of these women!

This year was my second year attending the Opening Day festivities, I chose a coral dress, gold open toed heels, and a simple black hat with accessories to bring the look together! The accessories were really my favorite part, so I thought I'd share them with you!

AMY CORNWELL JEWELRY

Recently I made a very special discovery, Amy Cornwell Jewelry. Amy designs and creates each piece of jewelry with her own hands making every piece unique and meaningful to the one that will be wearing it!
***

I have two very special treasures of my own that Amy made for me that I cherish and wear everyday (well, almost). I have a ring that is so delicate and a necklace that can have charms added to it in the future. For my boyfriend’s birthday I gave him a leather band with a simple “k&t” (matching my ring) that he could wear. All of the Amy Cornwell jewelry makes very precious gifts and I’m so excited for this discovery and am happy to share with all of you!
