In the spring sun.

Light green/pink/yellow gifted SuperTrash Dittany Dress & mint green bracelet, Tan thrifted straw boater hat, Brown thrifted belt, Silver ebay & Crossroads accessories, Light grey Jeffrey Cambell suede Foxy heels.

Hi Beautifuls!  Decided to do a mini-photoshoot this weekendwith my "photographer-made" boyfriend (he's super sweet to always take my outfit photos) :).  It was so bright and sunny aand beautiful outside, couldn't resist visiting our local beach and just lounging around in the wind and warm sun.  I frolicked around in the Spring sun in the seriously most beautiful dress I own, the Dittany dress from their spring collection, a contemporary line called SuperTrash.  I fell in love with the gorgeous watercolor-like design and the soft ruffles cascading down the dress.  Excuse me as I live in this dress for the rest of Spring :).
Decided to pair it off with my straw boater hat (reminiscent of the 50s) and various turquiose/silver accessories, along with my comfy (yes comfy for 5 inch heels lol) JC Foxys :), and belted it at the waist (my usual go-to accessory).

This weekend was pretty eventful as I attended a SF Bay Area blogger meetup on Saturday and met up with so many lovely bloggers!  Pictures of the event, links to their amazing blogs, and details to come on what happened that day :).  Afterwards, attended my boyfriend's cousin's baby shower, it was cute seeing all pink everywhere.  The desserts were delish and the games were pretty funny aand fun! :)
--
So, my new job as a Merchandiser at Chloe + Isabel is just starting and I wanted to ask my readers from the Bay Area (I wish I could ask everyone this who were international/out-of-state too!)....
Would anyone be interested in hosting a Trunk Show anytime soon? (it would be a little get-together to socialize/shop with your girlfriends, acquaintances, anyone who LOVES jewelry), and in the process of hosting one, you'll being able to get FREE JEWELRY!
Definitely let me know if you're interested in booking a trunk show via email (kcmurillo1990@gmail.com) and I'll be the one helping you organize, plan, and make it happen! And of course, I'd meet you for the first time!  I'm planning to dedicate a blog post (w/ lots of pics) of the trunk show you'd run with us too! :)
To see a sneak peek preview of the jewelry line, visit (and hopefully like?) :) their facebook page!
--
I hope you lovelies are doing well! and you had a happy easter!!  Definitely thank you so much again for all your comments and to past and newest followers and friends in the blogosphere!  I hope you all will have an amazing week ahead and keep inspiring with your gorgeous looks!
PS. Look out for a long-awaited Youtube vid coming soon this week! :)

I love the dress! I've seen that beach before, but I've never been to it. It's always looked nice when I've driven past it, though.
The idea of a trunk show seems amazing but I'd rather attend one than host one~
btw, thank you so much for following! I love your blog :)
