Spring into Gold Essentials

   My favorite thing about Spring is seeing all the beautiful flowers bloom around the neighborhood. One of my dreams is to go to the Sakura Festival in Japan. The beautiful cherry blossoms flood the streets and it's kind of like walking into a real life fairytale.

   The other day as I was walking around the neighborhood, I stumbled upon this street that had a couple of trees that were blooming. I took a mental note for future photoshoot opportunities and what better outfit to wear than this beautiful two piece set from Ali and Jay? The soft sleeves and the airy floral textured chiffon are perfect for the most romantic season. The cropped top also defines the waistline making it more figure flattering.
   As for jewelry options, I've integrated a few of my favorite staples from Michael Hill. I'm not an avid costume jewelry person to be honest. On a day to day basis, bigger jewelry becomes too fussy for me and I'm loving this gold collection. It's dainty and easy to layer, not to mention that they're all 10k gold, which means I don't have to worry about rusting. I used to buy tons of jewelry from Forever 21, but after washing my hands a few times, the rings would lose it's color. Now that I'm older, I'd much rather invest in quality over quantity.

  What are some of your favorite accessories for Spring? I used to be obsessed with platinum and silver, but for the past few years, I've been loving gold. Although, I do mix and match a lot as well.

For my collaboration with Michael Hill, I wanted to evoke a fairytale theme and since I watched Beauty and the Beast recently, I thought it'd be appropriate to create an artwork that's centered around the much beloved classic. I used the mini star necklace as a shooting star and the olive leaf ring as a princess crown. The teardrop necklace was used as a back detail for the iconic yellow dress. What do you guys think?

  1. I love these photos! I could mistake you for being at the cherry blossom festival! Those trees are amazing. My parents have some in their front yard and I just love that sweet smell in spring and watching them lose their petals, it reminds me of snow (pink snow!). This look is so beautiful for spring/ summer, I love that drape sleeve.
