DRESS | TURQUOISE AND DIAMOND NECKLACE | RING AND GOLD TRIANGLE NECKLACE (kokablogxoxo for first month free) | KIMONO

Okay I know what you are thinking… Another white dress? I am obsessed and I am not afraid to admit it! I love this one from Windsor Store (even though it is almost sold out!) because of the straps and cute back. And if that’s not enough I layered it under a kimono because why not wrap yourself up in a cocoon?!

And can we talk about these necklaces? They are each sooo stinking cute by themselves but I have been obsessed with layering necklaces for a while now and these ones are just so perfect together. I have always liked the saying that I would rather wear flowers in my hair than diamonds around my neck (as evidenced by my recent instagram photos..), but I think I will make an exception for this necklace :) I just love the look of the graphic design and element of quirkiness. When Charlie and I had been dating for a little while I remember asking him what adjective he thought described me (because isn’t that what all new couples do?….) and he said quirky and I loved it! I am definitely eclectic and that’s the way, uh huh uh huh, I like it.

Anyways, I am definitely going to be rocking it with the turquoise necklace all summer because if anything screams summer to me it is definitely turquoise. It must be because I picture spending my summers swimming in bright turquoise water, but then again the water in Connecticut is a murky dark blue soo I’m not quite sure how that’s going to happen.. Vacation time?!

Hope you guys have a wonderful weekend!

Front dutch braid tutorial


Hello there and happy tutorial Tuesday! Video tutorials are becoming a weekly thing and I am actually super excited about it! I am getting more comfortable with editing them and I am happy because personally I think videos are so much easier to follow than written out tutorials. What do you guys think?

FLOURISH DRESS c/o | SIMILAR PASTEL JACKET | SIMILAR SHOES | SUNNIES

I don’t know if you guys have noticed but recently I have been drawn to all white everything. Maybe it is because of my hair, but I just loooove the clean and simple way that white clothes look especially in summer when you have a nice fresh tan and you’re feeling good about yourself ;) I made a promise to myself that I was going to try to wear more sunscreen this year so I have started using self tanner after my go to beauty guru Cara from Maskcara suggested this Tanwise one… I am still getting the hang of it (like getting the middle of my back.. seriously I thought I had long arms but gosh darn it, that stubborn spot in the middle of my back just wants to stay pale!) but I actually love the results! And I am sure my skin will thank me in a few years. Or at least I hope so!

Anyways, now that I am a shade darker I am dying over white lace that lets my tan peak through. If you are as into this dress as me, you can get 25% off anything at Flourish Boutique with code “kokay”!

SANDALS | JEANS | HANDBAG | DIY SHIRT | SUNNIES

We went to Buffalo this weekend to visit Charlie’s family and it was such perfect weather! Like mid-eighties and not a cloud in the sky.. What happened to spring?! I can’t complain though. We went to this beautiful little Japanese garden and there was a gorgeous marble building surrounded with pink cherry blossoms and I was in heaven. Is there anything better than it raining pink petals? We decided to go back and take pictures there and I wore this denim on denim look with these fabulous Naughty Monkey sandals (and how much do you love that name!). Aside from the occasional heel, I usually live in flat sandals during the summer and looove these because they dress up jeans and a tshirt or pair perfectly with a fancier dress for a night out. I just love the contrast of the black embellished straps with the white denim here! Plus I have a discount code for you guys! Enter kokay at checkout to get 15% off of all orders over 70$ :) And as for this top… I made it from the flared part of an old pair of jeans! I just sewed two of them together and added a clasp at the bottom to wrap it, buuuuut I forgot to put a snap over my chest and needless to say I think some picnic-ers got a little more than they bargained for. I heard music and couldn’t help but dance!! You can’t take me anywhere……

PS these jeans are on sale right now for $17 which is crazy amazing because they are my favorite jeans for the spring and summer!
