cirque de soleil presents iris

dress: gifted sugarlips // shoes: gifted myhotshoes // bag: henri bendel // jewelry: nineties child

my first cirque de soleil show was mystere in vegas and i had such a memorable experience that i felt it was worth going to another one of their shows.

our experience started off rocky with tons of issues with your tickets… but honestly, it's the company you keep at the end of the day that matters most. and i had a lovely night despite all of the mishaps.

i loved how summery my outfit was. the dress is extremely comfortable and the shoes double as a weapon. just kidding. although the spikes are pretty sharp…

stripes & purple shorts

shorts: ℅ zen vintage // top: brandy melville // shoes: urban outfitters (similar here)// jewelry: nineties child

finally got a chance to bust out these purple shorts! they're actually supposed to be bermuda shorts length but lord knows that would make my legs appear even stumpier. i ended up cuffing them which gave them the perfect length.

surprisingly had no trouble at all styling them. i opted for a simple striped tee and some pewter giltter sneakers. oh, and they're unbelievably comfortable!

so glad i finally made it out to abbot kinney. i had heard about this fabulous street in various movies and tv shows. and from real people too… and it definitely lived up to my expectations. there are so many cute shops here! also, the ice cream shop we visited nice cream, gives the most generous portions.

i opted for my extremely neon jeans and my favorite blouse. easy breezy for a california beach day. not going to lie, i previously underestimated wet seal and was pleasantly surprised. granted these jeans really are what you pay for. no zipper. no pockets. literally have to shimmy my hips into them. but for $19.50, who's complaining?

rodeo drive

top & shorts: american eagle // shoes: jeffrey campbell tick wedges // bag: henri bendel

there's something about rodeo that makes you feel fancier than you really are. walking down rodeo (and for those who actually live in LA, it's not just rodeo drive, it's wilshire, santa monica and such) makes you feel like you're in a movie. #truestorybro

i've always been a huge fan of white shorts and jeans. sometimes i have a lot of trouble matching regular blue denim with certain tops but white always goes with everything. at least in my wardrobe.

boyfriend shorts

i'm so excited to share my favorite pair of shorts this summer. no joke. i wore them to disneyland and fell in love with them! they're incredibly comfortable and after the first wear, they form to fit your body but in a perfect loose boyfriend way. i guess that didn't make all too much sense but essentially, they're the perfect boyfriend shorts! the company that makes them, zen vintage, is currently sold in specialty boutiques in socal. i'll keep you posted when you can get a pair for yourself.

also, loving all these new jewelry finds from nineties child! they'll all be available for purchase in the next two weeks. i'll keep you posted on that too. in the mean time, shop their current collection and use the code JENNY15 for 15% off your entire order. they ship free domestically!
