Turquoise and mint.

Mint H&M cropped top, Brown thrifted belt, Light blue Levis high-waisted shorts, Turquoise gifted Volcom Sunny Daze Purse, Dark brown ASOS chelsea ankle boots, Silver/turquoise Crossroads & F21 accessories, Iced soy white mocha c/o of Starbucks.

Hi there lovelies!  Sooo noticed something new about the photos?  I wanted to try out how to make a gif image (tumblr inspired me lol), and I always like to take "walking" photos (my bf-made-photographer learned how to take them really well now lol), and soo I just put it together online, is it cool? lol..see how boredom gets to me?
Aanyways, today was seriously a beautiful spring day, minus the annoying allergies I'm getting lately, but thankfully today, i took Claritin!  It's a lifesaver.  To beat the heat, drank away my fave cold drink -- Starbucks iced soy white mocha, yum.  Also, wore my high-waisted denim shorts and my mint H&M cropped top.  Mint has really become one of my favorite colors, I love to wear it for clothes, on my nails as nail polish, and even as a color for decorating my room.
And a new fave color of mine for jewelry and accessories is definitely turquoise.  I got as a gift this gorgeous turquoise bag from Volcom and I really fell in love with how bohemian-esque it is.  I paired it off with my DIY feather dream catcher I turned into a key chain.  Also, paired it with my new fave ankle boots!  My first kind of chelsea boots, and I looove them.  They're from ASOS and luckily got them on sale a while back.

Sooo..you know what time it is?!  Picture time! lol (k that was corny and reminded me of a daycare scene). But newhoo, time for sharing pictures! :)  Finally have up some of the pics from the big SF Bay Area blogger meetup we had a while ago.  Enjoy! :)
We had a brunch get-together buffet-style at a nice restaurant on Mission in SF called Andalu.  They had the most delish donut holes!, prob was one of my fave kind of foods they had there lol.
Finally got to meet the lovely Christina of A Rainy Melody, been tweeting this girl for the longest ever :P. And got to see familiar gorgeous faces again, Jennie of Going West and Sherrie of Closet Hound. The creator of this blogger meetup was Jess of Style Pint, she was super sweet!
 We were messing around outside taking pics, of course have to get a moded pic of Sherrie in here, good times :).  Also Deanna of A California Dreamer, co-Berk blogger came to the meetup as well! :)
--
Hope you enjoyed the blogger meetup pics, and hope you lovelies can create a meetup in your town too!  They're super fun :) and a great way to connect with everyone away from the blogosphere and in real life :).
I hope you all have had a great weekend and the sun was out where you are too!  Thank you so much once again beautifuls for all your support, I really appreciate it..aand, BIG HUG COMIN YOUR WAY RIGHT NOW. :)

That turquoise bag is absolutely beautiful! I feel your pain with the allergies. I can't seem to get rid of mine. :( Happy Monday love. <3

Dale said...

Your outfit is so cute, I saw so many shorts like this out in SF today because the weather was so nice. I definitely need a pair and the bright purse is very cool especially with the little dream catcher, you look so pretty.

Nice post

Oh and nice gif pic!! :D I love gifs <33 I used to make some in 07 or 08 on ps, but later in like 09 I found a site that lets you upload how many pics you want, and animates it for you, and you get to choose how fast or slow you want it to go. I forgot what the site is called, -.- . I was trying to rememeber the name of the site the other day. I'll try and google it lol.

And thank you for you sweeet awesome comment on my illustration post! I love the 2nd one too! <3

Your bag is fabulous! That DIY dream catcher keychain looks perfect with it-- I think volcom should totally add that on! Love your meetup pics, they say SF has the best style on the west coast and I would have to agree!
