Current Crush: Cool Tropical Tones

Posted on April 11, 2014

Mint, Azul, Ocean, Palm - these are all words that come to mind when thinking of our most recent current crushes.  This week has been over the top hectic and calm crystal blue seas and palms waving in the wind have been the perfect mental escape.  

With Shay’s birthday the last week and the Coachella crazy, below are a few things that have popped on our radar and made a home in our lives…check it:

  1. Mint & Gold Wrap Bracelet - The Brave Collection
    The bracelets say “Klahan” which means “Brave” in “Khmer” the language of Cambodia.  Made in Phnom Penh by a team of fair-trade Cambodian artisans using solid brass, each bracelet is carved and knotted by hand and 10% of the profits are donated to fight human trafficking.

  2. Flannel Shirt - Rails
    I wear flannels to the gym, day to day and even out for a night on the town - they are the perfect piece to bring an outfit together or add a little extra something.

  3. Ripped Jeans - Blank Denim NYC
    We are huge fans of Blank Denim as of late.  The fit are fab on all body types and the price can’t be beat.  Take this style from simple day to trendy night.

  4. Biore Skincare - Self-heating One Minute Mask
    In just one minute, this thermal mask warms to open pores, draws out and dissolves 2.5 times more dirt, oil, and surface toxins than a basic cleanser, and rinses them clean away with an invigorating cooling sensation without stripping the skin. Infused with natural charcoal, this breakthrough mask melts dirt and oil better than most masks on the market.

  5. Realbeanz - Coconut Water Iced Coffee
    Coffee and coconut water? So you’re saying it is good for us?  There is nothing better than healthy convenience - and this is it.  Made with hydrating coconut water and a blend of 100% natural ingredients in a flavorful coffee blend…perfecto!

  6. Sugarfina Candy - Faves Bento Box
    Hello to the cutest packaging in the world!  Good bye thank you, happy birthday or get well flowers - Hello Sugarfina super chic candy boxes.  They also donate a portion to a couple very important causes as well.

  7. Sunglasses - Wildfox Twiggy Deluxe
    Mirrored lenses with a twist. The bold, thick frames and reflective surface and perfect for festival seasons and a knock-out statement piece.  They also come in several colors.

  8. Gold Gladiator Sandals - Stuart Weitzman
    With elastic straps going up they legs - these fuss free sandals can be worn to the beach or with a cocktail dress at night.  The price is reasonable for high-end shoes as well so these are a great investment for your sunny wardrobe essentials.

  9. BanTotal - Refresh Cooling Body Wipes
    These instantly cool hot skin on contact and leave you feeling refreshed. These convenient wipes leave behind a translucent, superfine powder that keeps skin smooth and comfortable, especially after a workout. And with three light refreshing scents—Enliven, Invigorate, and Restore—you can replace any lingering workout smell with delicate, reviving fragrance in a flash.

  10. Cupcake - Baked by Melissa Mint Chocolate Chip
    These bite sized little morsels are the ideal sugar fix.  Go online and even design your own kind.  They obviously don’t last long in our household though - one bite turns to 5!

  11. Tropical Picture - Hotel Azucar Mexico
    This hotel is everything - with the bubblegum pink accents and white wash structures it is the perfect girls getaway.  Located off the beaten path it is also relaxation certified. 

  12. Powder Blue Handbag - H&M 
    I bought this in a stone color and have had nothing but compliments from everyone I pass.  Is it Saint Laurent? Is it Celine? NO! It is H&M and perfect for an everyday bag that fits it ALL…this is IT bag approved.

  13. Eyeliners - Nars Larger than Life Long-Wear
    Ditch the black for a little something fun.  Water an Palm inspired these will add a little something to your usual plain black liner and make those eyes pop!

  14. Eyeshadow - Nars Duo Cream Shadow in Burn it Blue
    Like the liners, these are great for a little change.  I am used to creams and neutrals and done right, these will brighten the eye with out looking over the top.

It’s a jungle sometimes in the fashion world - so it’s key to keep it simple. You can’t go wrong with a LBD (little black dress) that has the perfect fit, form and is functional.

By adding the right accessories the LBD goes from drab to fab. Pair a chunky statement necklace with a chic clutch and a simple shoe. Sometimes less is more and in this case it only takes a few items to nail the perfect look.
