What We're Loving

Greeting My Bliss Babes!!


Spring is in full force, and I for one am gearing up for Summer. I've been waiting for what feels like forever. I know, I know... is it ever really Winter in California? Yes- it is to me. And I've been patient. We've had some sunny, hot days teasing us here and there, but I can't wait to not have to wear pants or wonder what the low temperature will be. 

We've been getting SO many amazing pieces here at Bliss. I'm obsessed with everything. For this chapter of What We're Loving, we made sure to have it chock full of frills, flounce, lace, patches, and sass. We got together with one of our favorite bloggers, Meg from HonestTwentyOne and took to Oceanside to bring you fresh outfits.

I don't think these will disappoint...


Aren't these just perfect? You know those places that just scream for a photo, all while wearing the perfect outfit. That's what this is to me. I for one, love wearing a one piece bathing suit as an outfit. It makes beach days, and late nights so much easier. For this look, just take Blue Life's Luna One Piece (here), and pair it with Blank NYC's Embroidered Crop Jeans (here.) These jeans are for sure my new favorite. The soft denim with gorgeous rose patch accents and destroyed knees make every goal daily achieved. Don't forget to pair this look with a perfect piece of jewelry. We used Ettika's Unchained Heart Necklace (here.) Oh, and don't forget your boots! We love Matisse's Pronto Distressed Suede Boots (here.) You're set with a beautiful outfit!


 Ah, have you seen a more frilly, feminine, pretty little number? Me either. This For Love & Lemons Gabrielle Swing Dress (here,) is the cutest polka dot number.  It's perfect for a date, girls night out, or pretty much any situation. Make it easy on yourself, and pair it with Matisse's Brantly Sandals (here,) and Ettika's Star and Moon Choker (here.) Who knew looking flawless could be so simple?



 Have you been missing that one statement dress? The dress you know will look amazing for any occasion? I got you. Because this is the one. Simple, chic, feminine, and lovely... Lovers + Friends Marlie Dress (here) is all you need to step up your wardrobe. It looks amazing with sandals, heels, layered... you get the drill. 


 OK- have you seen a more Summer perfect outfit? I'm lusting after this whole look. Each piece looks amazing separate with just about anything, but together, they look like they were meant to be. Want to replicate it? Yes! Pair Lovers + Friends Bayside Off The Should Top (here,) and Blank NYC's Fling Cleaning Overalls (here.) Oh, and don't forget the perfect hat! We love Lack of Color's The Lasso Hat (here.) These pieces are wardrobe staples for countless outfits.


Looking for something easy, delicate, feminine, and pretty? This outfit is for you.  Lovers + Friends makes it easy with The Beautiful Escape dress (here.)  This dress can be worn to so many different events, or just as a casual outfit. And the color looks amazing on every skin tone. We love it paired with Herschel's Network Pouch in Apricot Blush/Ice (here.) The pink and apricot colors mix perfectly together. Flawless!


Ah, I can feel Summer in this outfit. This lightweight romper, is the most comfortable and luxurious feeling outfit you never knew you needed- until now. All you need is Blue Life's Chloe Romper (here,) and Lack of Color's Lasso Hat (here.) Looking to get away? From tan overnight stay, to a weekend getaway, to a full fledged vacation, Herschel's Novel Duffle in Pelican Palm (here,) has you covered in what you need to pack to get there. And you'll arrive in fashion, head to toe.  

Meg modeled her own sunnies throughout our shoot; however, they were all by Quay. You can shop our HUGE selection of Quay Sunglasses (here.) 

These looks are perfect for the Spring & Summer seasons, and they will never disappoint. If you pick up any of these pieces, be sure to tag us on IG, so we can see how you wear them. I hope you love these photos, as much as I did making them. I'll see you soon with another, What We're Loving. I've got BIG things lined up and happening. Let's say, I'll be doing some traveling with fresh faces.
