Shine Bright Like a Diamond

Posted on 2 m read

The past two days, we got a taste of June gloom in the desert but I’m happy to say that the sun is finally back out to play! Call me crazy, but I think that 97 degree heat + clouds + humidity is way more unbearable than 104 degree heat + sun + no humidity. Glad to see Palm Springs back to its good ol’ self! πŸ˜‰ I recently bought this Free People dress and it’s been a favorite to wear just about anywhere. Even though it’s so sparkly, it can be easily worn to casual outings too. It comes in a peach pink and a navy blue. I loved both when I saw it in stores, so it was so hard to pick which to take home,Β but I ended up going with the blue!

The gloomy weather the past few days got me feeling a bit blue (no pun intended lol) and this dress just reminds me to always shine bright like a diamond! No matter what obstacles you may be going through in life, it’s always important to look up and forward. Shower people with kindness and love, because you just never know what they’re going through.

I have been obsessed with oversized round sunnies lately and scored this pair from Forever 21 for just a little over $5! ItΒ got it in store and wasn’t able to find the exact one online but linked a few of my favorite sunnies in a similar style below. It’s definitely a must-have for summer.Β πŸ™‚

What are some of your favorite wardrobe pieces lately?

    Gorgeous dress. Although it’s a bit short for me it’s great on you. The pictures are beautiful too.

    This is such a cute dress and I love the length to show off those long, lean legs of yours! The sparkle is definitely a reminder to be positive and shine despite difficulties that you face. I love that you tied those in together in this post. This dress is perfect for date nights, showers, and even weddings. I like it styled more casually with these wedges too. It is so gloomy here too, but I know the warm days are ahead! xoxo, Christine

      Thanks Christine! The shorter the better here in PS because I don’t want awkward tan lines LOL. Hopefully it’s warmed up for you in OC! It’s definitely heated up in PS… I’m indoors enjoying AC πŸ™‚

    LOVE that style of sunglasses. I have one pair and my friends always joke and call them “bug eye” glasses lol.

    • Sharon Wu
      June 5, 2017

      Thank you so much! LOL! I know right? My bf can’t seem to comprehend why I like to wear sunglasses that take up half my face hahaha.

  • Thomas Falkenstedt

    You’re so right hun, no matter what you’ve been through or are going through, you need to look ahead and shine bright like a diamond. Then again, you always do. I agree, heat with humidity is so much worse than heat without humidity, but then again, in those temperatures you’re not allowed to complain at all, haha. My fave accessories are yet to be discovered, but I’m going heavy on bags this summer (poor credit card of mine).
    Love,
    Thomas

    I love Free People! That sparkle dress looks amazing on you babe! you made the dress shine! I’ve had a few great days of summer time here too! except I got super burnt from my yacht trip. Guess I will stay indoor for the next few days T.T

      Thanks Jessie! You’re so sweet! Sorry to hear you got burnt on your yacht trip! Oddly enough I never get burnt and instead I just get really dark really fast when I’m in the sun a lot (even without sunscreen)! I have gotten better at wearing sunscreen ever since moving out here though because the sun in the desert feels dangerously strong LOL.

    The weather in LA was mega weird last week too! It was so gloomy and didn’t feel like LA. Of course this week we are back to normal which is nice. I absolutely love this dress! It’s so sparkly and pretty.
