Saturday Nostalgia

maroonHello All,

They say that the person you are today is a reflection of who you were in the past, just better.  I have to admit the things that I pick out for my closet now definite reflect certain memorable items from my childhood.

I’ve always loved beaded jewelry. I think the first beaded piece of jewelry I owned was given to me by my mother. It was a bracelet made of red seads with black dots at the very tip of each bead. They were strung up on a wax linen string. I adored it as a child. Today, I pick out beaded jewelry that I love to wear over and over again with different outfits. I love their earthy character.

Besides beaded jewelry, I’ve always loved the feel of a great pair of jeans. I must have been in the 5th grade when I learned that a great pair was essential. I adore this biker style black pair of jeans. I love the textured knees.

Sweater Weather: Leopard Spots and Biker Details

leopardsweater1Hey All,

My absolute favorite time of the year is sweater weather in Hawaii. It’s just enough cool to wear light jackets and sweaters. I have a preference for light sweaters and layering. The cool thing about sweater weather here is that its still sunny with a bit of chill in the wind.

Leopard is back this Fall and Winter and it’s more feminine than ever. I found this sweater a year and a half ago. I love the leopard print on the yoke. It has enough leopard to keep the sweater interesting but not over powering. I used it to layer over a basic white shirt and a pair of biker detailed pants.

Blue and Brass: Ocean Blue Midi with Brass Details

oceanblue4

Hey All,

I hope you had an amazing couple of weeks. School and work is tapering down for me and I’m looking forward to a long awaited trip. Before I step into the cold winters of the mid-west, I’m going to enjoy the next couple of weeks of cool days and sunny skies.

Shades of blue are in this season and when I saw this midi skirt it reminded me of the cool ocean blues that surround Hawaii.  I choose this brass necklace to compliment the brass studs in the shoes. I love how the gold tone of the brass brings out the richness of the blue.

Fade to Gray: Gray Stripes and Violet Highlights

Happy Saturday Everyone,

The weather here is getting chilly especially for Hawaii standards. It is definitely my favorite time of year because I have the opportunity to layer, something I do not have a chance to do the rest of the year.

Gray is big this season and I wanted to create an outfit using different shades of gray. I found this dress from Florencia Arias, a local designer, and I instantly fell in love with the cut and the subtle stripes of gray. I like to mix pieces that have structure to pieces that are more organic so naturally, I chose this open cardigan for its shape and added a pop of color with this scarf.

Spring Confidence: Silver Spoon Jewelry and Mockingbirds and Hummingbirds

Hey Everyone,

Happy Thursday Everyone! I hope you are having a great week. Spring is around the corner and I cannot wait  for Spring blooms and the beautiful sounds of birds in the morning.

I have always been fascinated with bird patterns and motifs. I love how birds can go where ever they please with a flap of their wings or have beautiful feather coats with colorings that can inspire outfits. Birds are delicate, strong, beautiful, and bold.  A bird that strikes my interest is the mockingbird, the master of imitation and languages, it often represents learning through experience, curiousity, intelligence, and confidence. They remind me of the women in my family who have traveled the world to learn and teach and the conversations I had with my great grand aunts who lived in foreign lands at the dinner table when I was little. The beautiful silverware they gathered from different parts of the globe telling me of their great travels.

When Silver Spoon Jewelry approached me about doing a blog post and I had the opportunity to choose a piece that I connected  with the first thing that caught my eye was this beautiful hummingbird piece that’s new to their line, it reminded me of mockingbirds. It’s vintage appeal, it reminds me of my great aunts stories that inspired me as a child visiting at the family house in Caaoacan in the Philippines. Like mockingbirds, hummingbirds have many talents that allow them to be resilient as well as achieve great feats despite their small size.

Where All the Flowers Bloom: Floral Skirt and Polka Dot Shirt

blossoms9

Happy Tuesday Everyone!

While going to the grocery store the other day, I was completely inspired by the beautiful orange flowers on this wall. They reminded of spring and summer weather and a floral skirt I bought last year that is vibrant and so full of life. I could not wait to go home and play with different pairings for the skirt. After some thought, I decided to pair if with a polka dot button down that accents the magenta and orange orchid design. It was a little rainy today, and the floral design reminded me that spring is just around the corner.
