Floral Kimono

My family and I went to have lunch at Joe's Crab Shack on Redondo beach. I ordered a spicy combination of corn, potatoes, crawfish, and shrimp. We sat right by the water and had an amazing view!

The weather was the perfect mix of sunny and cool, so I decided to keep it casual with sandals, a beige top and navy blue skirt topped off with a new floral kimono I recently bought! To top off the relaxing day, I grabbed myself a Blue Moon too ;) (I work so much; my new thing is to treat myself to at least one drink every weekend!)

If you're interested in purchasing a similar kimono, you can find some cute ones at Forever 21. I actually need to go check it out; they have so many colors. Also some cute ones on Polyvore. I'm telling you these kimonos are EVERYWHERE NOW! Hope you all had a good weekend!

Check out a couple of sandals I picked up from a random boutique in LA. They're so comfortable and cute! I feel like you can pair these with anything; especially a cute summer dress. I'm so in love with the casual chic look!

Nike Dual Fusion Running Shoes

I didn't get anything from the list I had from my last blog. But I got something from my all-time shopping list which is NEW RUNNING SHOES! I'm a pretty picky person when it comes to athletic wear, then I saw these Nike Dual Fusion shoes and fell in love instantly. They're so comfy and super cute! I love the bright pink with the gray. I saw some online in pink and want them too! See here: Nike Dual Fusion.

There's nothing better than getting in shape and looking cute while doing it! ;)

Fuschia tank top and Black Maxi Skirt with high slit

My first fashion photos on TIFFANYXOXO.COM. :) (Much more to come.) I love outfits like these - feels perfect for a sunny day out. I find maxi skirts/dresses to be super comfortable and good for those days you just want to look casual but still trendy.

So I'm going to Downtown Los Angeles today for some good old shopping therapy! Hoping to find a few things from my "Summer Shopping List" that I keep pushing off.
 Here's what's on my current list:
  • Cute sunglasses 
  • Colorful flats 
  • Big floppy hat for the beach
  • Bikini
  • Bracelets
  • Rings (Obsessed with those knuckle rings!!)
  • Clutch
  • Colorful dresses/tops
  • Jean shorts
Let's see if I can actually cross a few off my list today. Off to shopping! :)

Victoria's Secret Haul: Leopard bandeau bra and underwear

I picked up this cute Leopard bandeau bra and underwear pair at Victoria's Secret. I wear a lot of backless tops/dresses and was in need for a cute bandeau to wear underneath. Bandeaus are so much more comfortable than strapless bras and this particular leopard print is the perfect peek-a-boo print especially with a black backless tank top.

There are a few other styles at Victoria's Secret that I like. You can check them all out here and see if they're still on sale: Victoria's Secret.

Groupon deal: Nikon 1 J1 Digital SLR Camera

I told myself I would stay away from Groupon but I was bored last night and wanted to do a little online window shopping. As soon as I logged in, I saw this:

I was all over this deal!

I always typically have the Canon point-and-shoot type, but I've been wanting to invest in an entry-level DSLR type. I remember seeing this camera at a Target store and snapping shots to test it out. Not only are the pictures crystal clear, but I remember the colors being vivid and bright. The camera is also petite and chic with the different color options.

I was a little hesitant as I'm not used to purchasing refurbished goods, but as soon as I received the package, it looked as good as new!

Check it out at if you want to take part in the deal.

Or check it out at if you prefer a new one over refurbished.
