Earlier this week, my sister and I both had a day off so we decided to to take a trip up to Santa Barbara to shoot some photos and of course, do some shopping. I wore these high-rise Gap jeans I found on MAJOR sale about a week ago (and have worn them nearly everyday since). I decided to break out this floral American Apparel crop top that was part of last summer’s staple wardrobe in Europe. In the past, I’ve only worn this top with shorts and skirts, so it was fun to try something new and maybe a little more Carrie Bradshaw-esque. 😉
Last week I received an email from the cute and contemporary site For Elyse asking if I would be interested in doing a sponsored post with them and I didn’t hesitate to say YES! I chose this adorable floral kimono and am so excited to pair it with different pieces for summer!

Several months ago I stumbled upon the brand known as Sabo Skirt on Instagram and have been hooked ever since. This native Australian brand combines gorgeous vibrant colors with fabric that moves to create memorable pieces. The top things I love about the brand is the colors they use (like the trendy neon off-the-shoulder top above), their use of patterns and florals, the affordable prices (most pieces range from $40-$60 U.S. dollars) and most of all the sweet yet edgy style of the clothing. I have been dying to buy some of their clothes and accessories, but unfortunately since the company ships out of Stones Corner, Queensland, it would be ghastly expensive to send to my native Los Angeles. Hopefully some day I am able to buy and wear their clothing and maybe even blog about the pieces I wear!
I have been watching the company grow and love reading their blog at saboskirt.blogspot.com. The designers offer a fresh new take on styles and trends that I have never seen before. Above is a collage of some of my favs. I especially love the floral suit! Too Cute! All these products (and more) are available here at Saboskirt.com.
This season at Target, you can find look-a-likes to nearly every one of you fave high end designer pieces. I’m not saying that sometimes you don’t actually want “the real thing” but if you want to delve into new trends without breaking the bank, I suggest checking out Target.com (where you can purchase everything in the right hand/steal column).
