Victoria La Mode x Uniqlo

Let's be real - I'm the kind of girl who needs the AC on at all times. I'm always slightly warmer than the average person, and now I'm literally staying cool thanks to Uniqlo's AIRism line!

The thinkers at Uniqlo don't mess around. They envisioned a functional product to be sweat absorbent, while staying cool and dry, eliminating odors and made from the finest fibers. And so AIRism was born! 

Not only does AIRism eliminate sweat and moisture, it releases heat from the body, contains anti-odor properties, and the fabric stays cool to the touch. Let's not forget that the material is smoother than a baby's bottom. I've been wearing this Uniqlo lounge dress, running errands in 80 degree weather, and the verdict is in: AIRism is everything it promises to be!

I'm wearing one of their lounge dresses that I dressed up with a statement necklace, and threw on some gladiators for extra pizazz. I finished the look with my cat-eye sunglasses, also from Uniqlo.

I hope everyone is out enjoying these sunny days and warm nights. Some of us wait all year for summer. Now that it's in full swing, let's make the best of it! Catch some rays, cruise aimlessly with the windows down, maybe even dip your feet in the water. 

I'm going to be at VidCon in Anaheim, California this week. If you're also going, be sure to say hello!

As always, thanks so much for reading!

Let's talk about the kimono! The sheer fabric speaks femininity as it delicately slides off your shoulder--let's be real, shoulders don't get enough of the spotlight! And its relaxed fit is as comfy as lounging in your pajamas.

One of my favorite looks right now is a kimono paired with something tight underneath. Kimonos should be worn with tight clothing, otherwise it would look like you're drowning in layers. It's a stylish alternative to the light sweater I carry around on a spring or summer night or through the summer-to-autumn transition. For a flattering fit, pick one that is long enough to cover your bum. The length adds to its flowy nature while a shorter kimonos tend to look boxy.

I'm on my second cup of coffee, trying not to be sad that summer came to an end. Anyway, I hope everyone is having a splendid week so far! Thanks for stopping by, my loves!

Pool Party

Jersey: Flea Market, Shorts: Foreign Exchange, Necklace: Xevana, Shoes: Steve Madden  |  Photos by Lux

Hi, everyone! I don't know about you guys, but it's really tough for me to find a nice pair of denim cutoffs. I like these for their flattering cut and how it accentuates your legs. My friend had a long gold chain lying around so we got a little crafty and draped the chain onto these shorts of mine. Kind of neat, right?

I found this Michael Jordan jersey from a local flea market for a steal. My gut instinct told me to crop it, but I think I'll hold off for a while. How cool does it look with my Xevana necklace, though?

Lux and I thought this empty pool would be perfect for this street chic look. He blasted some music and I drowned out to the sound waves. I hope everyone is having a productive week so far. Thanks a bunch for reading, guys!

Sporty Chic

Top: Nike, Shoes: Steve Madden, Necklace: Xevana  |  Captured by Lux

I didn't ask for a bajillion awesome Mickey heads. I didn't ask for them to match my shirt, either. Sometimes life is just good to me! It's bright and sunny in San Francisco and a perfect day to rock this classic Nike tank and cruise around the bay. The only thing better than this retro tank is when it's paired with my Xevana necklace. Isn't she gorgeous? To complement the necklace, I threw on my super sick holographic heels. I love wearing simple sandal heels with denim shorts for that effortless I-woke-up-like-this vibe.

I have a couple photo shoots today plus some last minute shopping before heading out to Miami for my birthday! Should be fun. Hopefully, I can link up with new photographers and meet some cool peoples. Miami, I'm coming for ya! I hope you all are having a fantastic week, and thanks so much for reading!
