OKA Jewelry – Gold Resin Bib Link Flower Statement Necklace Set

OKA Jewelry - Gold Resin Bib Link Flower Statement Necklace Set

Here I am presenting another great gift from OKA Jewelry! My first impression of the website was that it sold jewelry just like any other brand name store. Once I received their jewelry, however, I was shocked by how gorgeous it was! Pictures cannot do it any justice. The necklace and earrings in person are absolutely stunning, and I would recommend this online store to all of my followers, friends, and family.

On a side note, we all know that you take your chances when shopping at Forever 21 because of the quality of material. I think it’s safe to say, however, that OKA Jewelry has very good quality items, similar to how I would rank Francesca’s (which is quite expensive).

So, all I ask is that you check out their website for some great deals!

If you would like to purchase this exact same jewelry set, click here! It’s only $12.95! You can also get it in coral, but I prefer the sea green!

More about me: I recently moved to Southern California, so this necklace fits in perfectly with the year-long summer. As you can probably tell, I was heading to the beach when this picture was taken.

Thanks again to OKA Jewelry! I love wearing your jewelry!

Bowling Outfit

So, on this lovely Saturday afternoon, I went bowling with the family and friends for my brother’s 14th birthday. Apparently, I was “too dressed up” for bowling, but this is what I wore anyway.

Caught in action! Anyway, that sums up my day.

Black Circle Skirt

We all know about the circle skirt (a.k.a. skater skirt) fad. Not to sound like a hipster, but I had actually already bought a circle skirt at a hand-me-down shop without knowing its trendy connotations. I just thought, “Hey, a nice black skirt in good condition. Everybody needs a black skirt.” Now I see this type of skirt all over the internet; needless to say I am very happy I made that purchase.

In the picture below, I combined my subtly pleated black circle skirt with a lacy floral top, which I tucked in. To create a contrast with the formality of the outfit, I laced on a pair of Converse.

Here are some close-ups. The necklace I am wearing is from France – my mom got it for me from a trip she went on a couple years ago.

I absolutely love the detailing of the necklace. I think it can add a touch of vintage to any outfit.

That is all for now. Have a great 4th of July tomorrow!

Among the Trees

My home never fails to amaze me with its beauty. To get to this wonderful scenery, I drove about a minute and walked for ten.

This is the pathway down. And then I reached the secluded meadow where I decided to start photographing.

Here are some of my favorite pictures from the shoot.

Starfish

Starfish

This is one of my favorite necklaces to wear in the summer. It was a gift from my mom, so I have no clue where it is from, or how much it cost. It’s so delicate and small, yet it speaks for itself with its intricate beading. Believe me when I say that it really adds a chic touch to a solid color v-neck or a simple sundress. The earrings that came with it are also a nice touch, but I generally like to wear the necklace on its own.

La Jolla Spree

La Jolla Spree

Recently I was in La Jolla, CA, and if you have ever been there, you would know that there is great shopping downtown. Saving for school being my highest priority right now, I could not go crazy with the shopping. Me being a thrifty shopper, I still found a way to come home with something! The dress is from Ross (not from downtown, but in a different area of La Jolla) and I got it for a whopping $5.99. The necklace and earring set, however, I got from a store called Georgiou in downtown. It was $22, so that was my single splurge.

If you are ever in the area, I would recommend going to Georgiou. It is a little expensive, but they were having a buy one get one half off sale when I was there. They have very classy, yet casual clothing. I spent a lot of time in Francesca’s as well, but the prices could not satisfy my thrifty nature. A close-up of the necklace and earrings will come up soon.
