Floral sweetness.

White/blue c/o ClubCouture floral dress, Brown thrifted belt, White vintage Chanel purse, Silver ebay slave chain bracelet, Turquoise Crossroads rings, Dark brown ASOS boots.

Hi Beautifuls!!  Omg, I've been yearning for a while now to finally post again, and thank goodness Blogger is working now!  Sorry lovelies for the absence, but I'm back with full force once again! :)  ..especially since I can officially say...I'm DONE w/ my Junior year at Cal!! woot! time to relax, start a to-do list for this Summer (ie. watercolor painting, DIY projects, slumber parties w/ my besties, etc.)  Summer's finaaally here! :)
And to enjoy this spring/summer goodness, I wanted to lounge around in the sweet spring sun with my new favorite spring dress!  Sent by my newest sponsor, ClubCouture!  The sheer fabric and floral print (without being overly flowery) just makes me want to have tea in a secret garden for the springtime.  I wanted to create a classy look by taking out my faaave vintage bag right now -- Chanel! and do something different with my hair -- so decided to tie it up in a very high bun.  To make this outfit more casual and comfy, paired it off with my ASOS boots.
Also, as my newest sponsor, ClubCouture is giving Inspirafashion's readers a 15% discount off any item from their online shop! Be sure to check out their amazing collection of spring clothing! :)  At check-out, enter this offer code: CCBLOG15
Also! ClubCouture is having a free shipping worldwide promotion (no minimum spend required)!

This next week is pretty packed for me in terms of Fashion events..I've been contacted by many amazing companies/individuals to meet with them, so I'm super excited!  I will definitely let you know all the details.  But first up, this Saturday, I'm meeting up with the aamazing photographer, Lydia Hudgens; we're going to have a shoot in Hayes Valley (in SF), never been there before, so am super excited to visit and of course hang out in the city w/ this girl :)
This past week, I couldn't help myself from indulging a bit in shopping...broke my shopping diet just for now :P.  But these items were so lovely to not pass up..
Got my new swimsuit for summer!!  H&M right now has an amazing collection of swimsuits, which I def recommend to get, #1 they're super unique and cuute, #2 most importantly, they're inexpensive for great quality ($15-$20).  I just hope in this swimsuit, I don't get a strange tan/sunburn from the side parts haha.
I also bought at one of my fave stores, Target, new makeup items -- Chelsea of Zipped and her lovely self introduced me and recommended me to get the L'Oreal Voluminous Million Lashes Mascara (which im luhlooving at the moment).  I also wanted to get a new lipshade for Spring -- an orangey Coral.  Bought Revlon lipstick in Siren.
--
Whew, & of course, I just wanted to say thank you sososo much again lovelies for your amazing support for my blog, it really means so much.  Especially with everyone who has supported me also on my blog's new official Facebook page! :)  To new and past followers, <3<3<3<3xinfinity :).
Now off to browse your inspiring and amazing blogs :).

I really love that bag. I like the belt too, but I think it's because I have one exactly the same! I nicked it from the lost property basket at work!

TheStreetFashion5xpro said...

Stunning!!!

Jenny Ong said...

I love thissss Kathleen, girl! So effortless and simple... but it looks so good.

And yessss to one pieces! I was never a fan of bikinis (weird) - maybe because I feel like one piece swimsuits give off a more vintage feel. The one you chose out is so nice :)

Can't wait to finally meet you when you come down! x

Kristina Lennon said...

Eeeek Kathleen you look soooooo beautiful! I absolutely love this outfit, its a little different to what you usually wear but you look totally cute :) I just wanted to say thank you for your amazingly sweet comment on my blog almost two months ago, when I said I was going to stop blogging while I dealt with my break up. You even offered to call me up, and I live all the way in Australia! Babe, that is one of the nicest things anyone said to me during that period, and I am sooo touched that you would care so much about someone you just know through blogging! So thank you so much Kathleen, you are a total sweetheart :) x x x
