FBFF Q&A: Summer fab five

10 Jun

{ fbff: }

This week on Fashion Beauty Friend Friday we’re talking about our favorite summer trends. Mine were a no-brainer. I’ve been obsessed with exactly five things. Maybe I made that up but here are five things that I can’t get enough of, just ask anyone who sees me daily. Or you could take my word for it.


Daily outfit, style tip, Chanel Monte Carlo lipstick


I’ve become obsessed with this lipstick from Chanel. It’s a nicely glossed tint of the most perfect pink with a light scent reminiscent of roses. Gently hydrates my lips, never feels heavy.


Daily outfit, style tip, long beaded necklace
Long beaded necklace


I just picked up this long beaded necklace and want to throw it on with everything I’m wearing these days. It’s very long and light and feels nice to the touch. Being tactile by nature, this is pleases me to no end. The multitude of colors either match or offset pretty much everything. It hangs effortlessly and adds a nice touch to the most basic of t-shirts.


Daily outfit, style tip, Papaya "love" water bottle
Love water bottle


I bought this water bottle because I liked the way it looked, it was that easy. It’s got a bird, cherry blossoms and “love”. What more could I want? I needed a lightweight water bottle for my trip, I know I paid the “style” tax on it but I’ll use it for years. It’s pretty and it’s a water bottle. What’s not trendy about being healthy and hydrated in summer?


Daily outfit & style tip, platform sandal


I love platforms! Must I say more? I’ve previously professed my love for the platform here. Added height, minimal discomfort. I hope they never, ever go away. Ever.


Daily outfit, style tip, white cotton eyelet shorts


Shorts are new to me and now I’m hooked. To be fair, I could never wear shorts in San Francisco. I can in Oakland. You know what I’m talking about, Oaklanders.
