Summer Blues

I have so many ideas brewing in my head and an ever-growing to-do list of all the things I have to execute in the month of August. First priority is to find another full-time job so if you know of any agencies or positions hiring for Marketing, administrative work, or social media, let me know in the comments below!

I have a special project launching soon as well… All I can say is that there’s no definite deadline on when it’ll launch but it’s a dream of mine that is so close and within my grasp. And I am so excited to finally make it happen.

Blue is my favorite color (aside from red and gold). It’s such a versatile color that I tend to wear a lot more than red and gold, which are obviously flashy and don’t pair well with everything. Blue literally pairs with anything.

This striped blue button-up is actually one of my favorite shirts in my closet. Sadly, it got stained and I’ll have to find a similar top because I absolutely love this and used to wear it all the time. I paired this shirt with my flared denim skirt from Zara, reminiscent of a pleated schoolgirl skirt. One of my favorite denim skirts in my closet as well. I paired a lot of favorites for this particular look.

I kept the accessories pretty understated and chose to go with rich browns, neutrals, and golds. I’m so in love with this gorgeous JORD watch. The Frankie watch is oversized, beautifully crafted, and definitely a statement piece but still very minimalist. I love the zebrawood material and the gold details on this watch! I don’t wear it too often because I’m scared that the dry weather in Vegas would make the wood crack and I always take proper care of this particular watch. The case is absolutely gorgeous too.

I’m very simple when it comes to my jewelry. I prefer delicate, gold pieces instead of statement jewelry. The shorter necklace is from Anthropologie and the lariat is from this incredible Etsy shop called Shop Evren.

Of course my makeup is very simple as well. You all have probably noticed that I pretty much wear the same look for every shoot and every event, every appearance… Because that’s all I know as far as makeup goes. I gravitate towards peachy nudes for the lips or bright orange reds. I prefer bronzer over blush and tons of highlight. I usually keep the eyes very nude or bronze with eyeliner and mascara, and that’s it. No cut-creases, no smokey eyes (unless I’m getting it done). I simply don’t have the time to sit at my vanity and put on a full face or experiment with makeup. I’m almost always on-the-go so I tend to stick to this quick 5-minute look.

Did you notice my new tattoo? Just kidding! Inkbox is a company I collaborated with in the past and I love them! It’s a way for me to experiment with tattoos and designs before actually committing to one. I’m still pretty scared of getting one but Inkbox’s temporary tattoos give me the freedom to explore. I chose the Yu Yi tattoo which features two and a half hearts to symbolize lives in games. I thought it was super cute and reflected my often-hidden nerdy gamer self. Unfortunately, the Yu Yi tattoo is no longer available online but you can make your own custom designs and also do freehand ink if you like!

Here’s a photo of me acting like I’m not just about to get run over. I love walking shots but they are so hard to execute! Usually, I try to cross three to four times and I have to be conscious of my facial expression, my posture, that I elongate my legs, point my toes and give my skinny angle to the camera all while making sure my photographer and I don’t get run over. It’s hard work! Dunno if I actually pulled this one off though. Looking back at it, I’ve got a pretty sheepish expression on my face… *facepalm

Afterwards, we replenished with some tarts and watermelon smoothies at my favorite spot in Tivoli Village called Leone Cafe. Love this place and it is always PACKED.
