Summer Sarong Trends!

September 19, 2012 • by jhoice • in Fashion Finds Summer Trends

Summer! Summer! It is such a fun time of the year to be in style and we can have too much stuff! It is a great time to seek some desirable adventures like going to the park, a barbecue party, or even attend a concert under the sun.

.. And Since I am staying now in the Philippines for some serious vacation and even though there are a few bittersweet feeling.. (we’ll talk about that later) FYI, It’s everyday summer in the Philippines. Lol! Real talk, actually from the month of June to December we do have frequent rain and occasional typhoons. But that won’t stop me from indulging myself with summer things! Harr=)

Anyways, one of my favorite things to do during summer is of course going to open beach to relax and swim- I just love summer where I can wear colorful swimsuits and accessories. I must admit that I have this addiction for summer-must-haves and I always have to have them! I tend to buy a lot of bathing suits even though I don’t wear them! Seriously, I don’t know why it is so important to me, HAHA! But being able to wear swimsuits on summer is something I am so obsessing- memories are just waiting to happen!

So Yea! I have to be prepared and I am actually eyeing for a sarong to go with my swimsuit  for our next outing! I have already bought a pair of sandals and a new look in handbags. Back to the bittersweet feeling- is I can no longer shop to my favorite Swimwear Shop back in the U.S! *smh*  I did some research on a good shopping site for sarong because I didn’t like the kind I had bought last time. Guess What? I found an amazing site that offers a great selection of fashionable summer stuff, including hats, bags and jewelry. They also offers a broad array of elegant, vibrant sarongs from Indonesia to fit in every occasion, what I love most is they really gives some great ideas and easy-to-follow steps on how to tie a sarong.   I like to try the Short Skirt (Full Sarong as Short Skirt) I can wear it over my bikini for a comfortable outfit or the Neck Knot to go over my  two-piece!

So I did browse more in Fairwinds Sarongs. One of my favorite picks is the

Best Summer Gems

July 2, 2012 • by jhoice • in Summer Trends

In the hot months of summer, looking glamorous can be challenging. You have to avoid heavy fabrics, intricate dresses and anything that might make you sweat. While you might be able to get away with wearing a classic little black dress to a cocktail party, you’re also going to need looks you can take to the beach. One of the best tricks is to wear jewelry that features gems. Doing so subtly displays your taste and sophistication. Here are three of the finest gems for the summer months.

Sky Blue Turquoise

Long prized for its unique color, this gem is an excellent choice for summer. The cool, vibrant blue of turquoise brings to mind the gorgeous clear skies of summer. Frequently associated with the hot, dry climate of the southwestern deserts where it’s abundant, turquoise makes a natural fit for summer.

As a bright stone, a little turquoise goes a long way. Try to find some small turquoise earrings, a subtle belt or a lovely ring. Turquoise pairs well with silver, leather and earthy tones. There’s plenty of turquoise jewelry out there; you can even find some excellent pieces at flea markets.

Classic Diamonds

There’s no stone quite like a diamond. Their clear, timeless brilliance shines as bright as the summer sun. Diamonds are always in style, regardless of passing seasons or trends. If you want to invest in a piece you can wear all year long, seek out diamonds.

The clear and sparkling color of diamonds makes them highly versatile. You can wear them in clusters or alone, with gold or with silver, as compelling centerpieces or understated accents. If you’re wanting to make a statement that’s more about romance than fashion, perhaps it’s time to look for diamond engagement rings online.

Ancient Amber

Amber is prehistoric tree sap that has turned as hard as stone. In color, amber is a lush orange as gorgeous as a summer sunset. The unique, luminous beauty of amber makes it the perfect accent to any summer outfit.

As an organic material, amber pairs well with materials such as wood and bone. Choose warm colors, blacks or earth tones to go with your amber. If you’re going for a natural, care-free style, amber is the perfect choice.

With these gems to choose from, you’re sure to make a stylish splash at the pool this summer. For variation, try to find at least one piece with each type of gem. Turquoise, diamonds and amber will help you shine this summer.
