June 2016 Recap
Hey there! Happy Wednesday! We're only a few days away from the weekend and I am eagerly waiting for it! Holiday weekends are always my favorite and with fourth of July nearly here, I am so excited! By the way, can you believe how quickly time is flying by this year. July is only a couple of days away, which means it's time for my monthly recap. Here we go!
I started the month off with this super cute style post. I'm loving rompers for summer and this one quickly became my favorite. I don't know about you, but I always have a hard time finding the perfect romper. As soon as I tried this one on, I knew it was a keeper. See more of this look when you click here.
I started a new series on my blog called Friday Five, where I basically share five things that revolve around the same topic. This time, I shared five things I've recently been enjoying. It's easy to say peonies made the cut and appeared in all the photos in this blog post. I mean, I just couldn't help myself! They're gorgeous flowers and I'm so sad peony season is over now. See more photos and all the details on what I've been enjoying over on this post.
You may have noticed something new on my blog this month. I added a new day to my posting schedule! I'm still posting new content every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, and in conjunction to that, a new blog post goes up every Sunday! Sunday's are my r&r days and I love catching up on blogposts I may have missed throughout the week, so I thought sharing new and fresh content would be great for others who use their Sundays to rest and relax too! My first Sunday post featured my goals for the month of June. So far, I've completed a couple but didn't have a chance to get to a few. Oh well! There's always next month right? Feel free to click here to see my goals for the month of June, and stay tuned because I'll be sharing about my goals for the month of July really soon.
It's safe to say I'm still highly obsessed about the lace up trend. I'm specially loving it on this top. I think it's such a pretty and feminine detail and I simply can't get enough. The tittle of this blogpost is Maybe She's A Wildflower, which was completely inspired by the print of this blouse. My husband and I actually found this little alley way with tons of wildflowers and thought it would be the perfect backdrop to shoot this look. If you'd like to see the rest of this outfit, feel free to click here.
Two words. Peony season. Be still my heart! These have to be my absolute favorite flowers. They're oh so gorgeous and I love the way they smell!
It's always better with a cute tee! This tee stole my heart from the moment I saw it. It might be because I've always dreamed of owning a cute bike with a basket full of flowers. Completely dreamy, right? See more of this look when you click here.
With summer in full swing, a trip to the beach is ALWAYS necessary. I shared my cute beach trip look complete with a pair of sandals, some comfy cotton shorts, and the cutest palm tree tank top over on this blogpost.
I always like to share cute photos that I post of Instagram during the week. This month, these two were some of my favorites. Next best thing to peonies? Just a couple of succulents! Feel free to add me on Instagram so you don't miss out on any cute posts. I'm always sharing my inspirations over there! Simply search: forallthingspretty to find me.
The newest trend alert? Chokers! I shared a few of my favorite in this blogpost, and actually DIY'ed the one you see in the photos above.
Something very exciting happened this month! I was featured on the Bloguette's Top 5 Instagram Accounts to for the month of June. I was completely blown away and felt so incredibly honored to be featured. You can see all of the other talented individuals plus read the post when you click here.
Besides Ipsy, which we'll get to in a little bit, Rocksbox is my absolute favorite subscription box. Each month, they send three pieces of high end jewelry of your liking to your doorstep. You're then able to style and wear them as much as you like before making your decision to purchase or send back for another set. I'm always the worst when it comes to shopping for jewelry, so I absolutely love that I get to play with these jewels before purchasing. Most often than not, I always end up with an item or two because I just can't part with them. If you're interested in joining Rocksbox, make sure to use code forallthingsprettyxoxo to get your first month free.
My summer uniform almost always includes a pair of shorts. I decided to pair these white denim ones with a lace tank and a perfectly distressed denim vest from American Eagle. A pair of wedges, which I've been wearing with EVERYTHING recently, and my new choker complete the look. See more of this white on white look when you click here.
Okay, so remember how last month I shared a peony wallpaper, here. Well, this month, I created a sunflower one! Sunflowers are always so happy & bright and I love how they add just the perfect pop of color to my tech for the summer. Download it for yourself when you click here. It's perfect for your phone or tablet lockscreen!
Is it really summer if you don't go out and adventure? Luckily, living in Southern California, that is not a problem. This month, I spent a day at Disneyland and shared a photo diary, click here to see all the fun photos I took throughout the day! This place is seriously so magical! Can I move in now?
Summer is my favorite season to go out and explore. I shared a list of 12 fun things I'm looking forward to this season. To be honest, I can't wait to cross everything off my list, specially number 10! Click here to see the full list, and make sure to let me know what you're looking forward to this season!
This month's Ipsy bag was everything and more! I had so much fun playing with all the new samples I received. In particular, the blush and the mask were my favorites! I'm sharing more details about this unboxing here.
I'm totally swooning over this dress! It features the prettiest lace-up neckline (see! told you I was obsessed), the most lovely bell sleeves, and a gorgeous detailed hemline. I just shared this, click here to see more, a few days ago and received so many compliments on it! I truly is the perfect summer dress!
Here are a couple of snapshots I shared on my Insta recently. Is it just me or does anyone else have a hard time choosing which polish color to wear! Usually I gravitate towards lighter tones but recently I've really been enjoying blue hues. Also, that tassel pillow is everything!
Wow! We made it to the end of the recap. If you're still here, THANK YOU! Thank you so much for taking a moment of your day to stop by and hangout. I truly can't believe the month of June is nearly over. Can time please slow down, just a little bit! Ha! This month has definitely been so much fun!
