Fields of Lavender | Swing Dress + Warm Sun

One of my bucket list was to see the fields of lavender in Provence and I was so happy to have checked that off my list few weeks ago. It was a sight to see and I was so glad to have met a friend along the tour who helped me shoot my outfit photos. Afterwards, I could not stop taking photos of these beautiful lavender and soak in the scent and beautiful scenery.

For my tour around Provence lavender field and the little town of Aix-en-Provence, I wanted to wear something light and loose and keep cool under the warm sun–especially since I had a backpack and my heavy camera with me.

3 Summer Ready Hairstyles with Remington

Hello everyone! When Remington reached out to me to create summer hairstyles using one of their tools, I was more than happy to do so. I especially was drawn to the teardrop wand due to its unique shape and wanted to see what type of hairstyles that it can create. Much to my happiness, it created just the right type of waves that I wanted for an everyday, effortless summer-ready hair (see photo one & two below) that you can easily use as a base to create these three hairstyles below. See what I mean after the jump.

Summer Casual | Boho Top + Cutoff Shorts

Hello everyone! I just got back from my Europe travels yesterday and heard that it’s been crazy hot and humid over there. Not so much in Europe and the days were longer. I’m pretty sure I will be missing the travel anytime soon now. If you haven’t followed me on instagram, you can catch up there to see what I mean.

Anyway, to keep cool in the summer temps, I have this outfit below. Cut-off shorts are pretty much my go-to for the summer and add on a lightweight flirty off-the-shoulder top completes it for an easy look any day.
