A couple things we keep in mind when choosing the perfect bag for summer are durability (it has to be able to withstand a summer of being tossed and lugged around!) size (the thing has to be able to hold some fashion mags and a water bottle as well all the other stuff!) and of course there is the cuteness factor… Here are a few of our top picks!

Amuse Society: Essental Attire for a Beach Lovin’ Babe http://www.blocks-n-bling.com/blocks-n-bling/amuse-society-essental-attire-for-a-beach-lovin-babe/ Thu, 28 Apr 2016 23:07:49 +0000 http://www.blocks-n-bling.com/?p=3648 Because most of our days are spent in search of either waves or a piece of sand on which to spread a beach towel and get some sun, a closet full of boho/beachy clothing is essential.  The Amuse Society, a clothing brand that stole our hearts immediately when they used the words “Beach Vida Bling” in reference to their style,  fits this bill to a T.  This beach lifestyle brand has a ton of sexy, flirty, and easy to wear clothes that are designed to,  “channel a rock muse on a beach holiday.” What more could a beach lovin’ babe ask for?  Lucky for us, our beach holiday never seems to end!

Island Magic: Winter Break in a Wave-filled Wonderland http://www.blocks-n-bling.com/blocks-n-bling/island-magic-winter-break-in-a-wave-filled-wonderland/ Mon, 28 Mar 2016 20:04:56 +0000 http://www.blocks-n-bling.com/?p=3570 This winter break both Kelsey and I packed bags full of bikinis and cute little bootie wetsuits, and headed across the big blue pacific to Hawaii.   

For a few bliss filled weeks we spent long days surfing in divinely warm water, beaching, sunning, and playing with the plethora of turtles that have been lounging about lately.  

Given the fact that it is El Niño, this winter has been off the charts for waves.  During our time there, we saw some of the biggest waves ever ridden at Pe’ahi (Jaws), got to surf some epic days at Honolua Bay and Hanalei Bay, and saw some sights that were so beautiful, words can’t even begin to do them justice.  

Here are just a few pics from our adventures. 

Enjoy!

Chloe Oliver: 70’s Style With a 2016 Twist http://www.blocks-n-bling.com/blocks-n-bling/chloe-oliver-70s-style-with-a-2016-twist/ Wed, 10 Feb 2016 00:42:54 +0000 http://www.blocks-n-bling.com/?p=3425 Chloe Oliver, a hip LA based label, was created by two mid-western gals living their dreams as a design team in California.  Not only is their story and vision an inspiration to us, their entire line is a trove of inspiration for any lady who is looking for the perfect mixture of timeless classic, trendy chic, and just a dash of sexy-boho-hippie magic.

Its time to embrace those flare jeans, geometric prints and a must-have suede skirt.  With an abundance of statement pieces, this collection embodies the idea that 2016 can meet 1970 right in the middle and transform your look into a street chic 70’s (a la 2016) babe.
