I guess I’m just going for a statement heel theme this week! Usually when I’m considering buying something I’ll keep it in my cart for a few days and see if I keep coming back to them because I’m dying inside without them. Example: this pair of heels is one I’ve been lusting after for a while now and I just hit ‘purchase’ on them today. Hooray. Today I’m catching up on blog emails and such and then I’m off to pack for my Kauai trip (I leave tomorrow morning) for the Miss Kauai USA pageant. Happy Thursday!
When I first started getting into fashion and style, I was taught that horizontal stripes were a no-go, but I’m going to agree to disagree with whoever made that rule up and stick to my own personal fashion mantra — if you like it, wear it! If I’m being honest, I consider stripes to be neutrals at this point so they’re a staple in my closet. Here’s a fun two-piece set that can easily be dressed up with heels or dressed down with some cute sandals and maybe even a hat.
Today’s a busy day for me with work, a casting and an appearance so I needed an outfit that would be acceptable for all three. How’s everyone’s week going? Would love to hear from you all in the comments.
One of my favorite ways to make an outfit pop is with a pair of statement heels — think anything in a bright, fun color or something ultra-strappy or in a tie-up style. These hot pink Nasty Gal pumps were calling my name so I styled a whole outfit around it. I’ve been feeling a little sick lately (the lack of sleep at Miss USA was bound to catch up with me) so I’m off to stock up on soup and take an afternoon nap. Happy Tuesday!

There’s just nothing like a floral dress in the summer. It’s light and easy but endlessly chic, and I love this one because the one-shoulder style is just unexpected enough. I wore this outfit over the weekend and plan to wear it on repeat for the rest of the summer. This weekend I judged the Miss Hawaii Filipina pageant and it was more fun than I ever would have thought. It was serious pressure for me though, because I know from personal experience how much work goes into prepping for a pageant and how much courage it takes to put yourself out there to be judged like that, so I wanted to make sure I was really thoughtful with my scoring. I’ll post a few photos of my Saturday night outfit this week.
In this post, I’m wearing jewelry by Catherine Weitzman. Every single piece is handmade and you can see and feel the quality, which I just love. I’m especially obsessed with the fact that all of her jewelry is versatile and can easily transition from day to night. The whole collection is made right here in Hawaii and draws inspiration from Catherine’s travels, her childhood in the city, and her love of nature and water. Check out the whole collection here.
A couple months ago I was lucky enough to shoot for the Pearlridge Magazine cover and fashion spread below which was such a dream. For me, the only downside to modeling is when you walk on set and there are racks and racks of clothes and you want it all but your bank account is telling you “no way.” That was the case in this photoshoot because all of the swimsuits were colorful and perfect, and I’m not going to lie I did end up buying one…okay maybe two. Hope you’re all having an amazing Thursday.
