Faux Denim


TrendyBlendy jeggings c/o, BCBGMaxAzria olive silk "Mura" top [similar: 1], Prada Saffiano Lux bag, ShoeMint bronze heels c/o, Paradise Metal Art rings c/o, Guess necklace, Emporio Armani sunnies [similar]

I just love skinny jeans paired with a breezy top and heels but even better are these things called jeggings! I mean, you get the look of denim and the comfort of leggings. It's great. You just have to be careful and remember that although they look like skinny jeans, they are not to be treated as such. Wear a long top that covers or almost covers your bum (slightly more leeway than leggings) and you will be okay :)

Now these specific jeggings are from a new trend-based shopping site called TrendyBlendy, which will be launching May 6th. (I actually modeled for them a few weeks ago!) They're hosting an exclusive pre-launch sale so you guys can get a little sneak peek, and they are offering a 30% off your first order coupon code of HAPATIMEFIRSTVIP, exclusively to my readers! (Coupon expires 5/6)

Last but not least, congrats to Becca Whitmarsh for winning my ShoeMint giveaway! You will be contacted soon :)

Do the Bright Thing


Sheinside dress c/o, BCBG Heels, Prada Bag, Heather Belle Co. cuff c/o, LoveStylize ring c/o

Vivid, bright and beautiful colors --- will always make me happier than a kid with ice cream (when I paint I go crazy with the colors too). I mean seriously you can't get any brighter than this (well you can but who would want to?). This is a great statement dress and will definitely capture some attention. Pair it with ankle booties (open or closed toe - both work), and a classy black bag to make it work for the day time. Or if you want to wear it for a night out you'll definitely be wanting to pair it with strappy heels and a sparkly clutch.

New [original top is sold out] similar: top and skirt - Nasty Gal, Heels - c/o ShoeDazzle, Clutch - gifted, Necklace - c/o Merrin and Gussy, Ring - c/o JewelMint 

As you can see, I did a little shopping on Nasty Gal recently :) I got a purple sweater too which I'll be showing you soon even though it has gotten seriously warm these last 2 weeks!! (Maybe that's why the sweater was over 60% off ha ha) Anyways this top is a great party/club top and is very versatile. I like that it fully covers my bra while it is still a cut out top. The black and white pencil skirt is on trend and a little edgy too with the front zipper. It actually works well for the office - and I think it would look great paired with a white chiffon blouse and black belt.

Now this is my second time styling these ShoeDazzle shoes and it won't be the last :) I mean metallic heels are not only on trend but they really go with everything, right? ShoeDazzle has lately been one of my favorite online shoe stores to shop because not only are the majority of the shoes hugely affordable (can you beat $39.95?) but the quality is fabulous and the recommendations by the Rachel Zoe style team are on point. You can even opt in for the VIP membership for $9.95 a month and get 10-25% off all full price items and free shipping. And actually anyone can get 25% off their first purchase + free shipping too! ootd-fashion-fashionblogger-california-hapa-fashiontrends-choies-denim

Mixing denim is such an easy way to feel a little more modern. I love this stonewashed denim shirt from Choies unbuttoned and especially with white. I went for a bit of a casual biker look though seriously would never get on a motorcycle in shorts and high heeled boots :)

Now did you guys know that my bag is a knock off of Thomas WyldeIf not, then you probably haven't heard of Thomas Wylde (but you probably ARE familiar with those popular skull scarves from a few years ago??) before at all and you can read an interesting article on the designer here! Really, I LOVE the whole collection - I mean rock n roll romance is a vibe I totally gravitate to, I just wish there was a more affordable line for us normal people that don't have $500 to spend on a t-shirt!! :)

 Since pastels are a spring classic I decided to spice things up a bit with this gorgeous aquamarine "Amelia" satchel from Mimi Boutique. This is a great look for weekend shopping, brunch with the ladies or just for looking a little more polished on those casual days. 

The weather has been amazing in the south bay by the way. We've been cruising around 70 - 75 degrees Fahrenheit all week!! I love it :)

 Happy Saturday!! I finally cleaned the lens of the cam and I have to say it's very nice not to see dust all over the place.

This is a super comfy but sweet look for the weekend or even class. And do you remember how I styled this bralette and cardi before? Check it out here: http://www.hapatime.com/2013/01/you-fit-me-better-than-my-favorite.html
