Summer Style 2019


Hello hello Kindness Gems crew! Summer is right around the corner and I have been so pumped to get ready for the season! Let’s talk fashion, clothing, jewelry and everything in between!

Summer means bathing suits on bathing suits on bathing suits! Where do I get my favorites? I loveee shopping at local surf shops to get my suits. If you are located in San Diego, I totally recommend checking out South Coast Surf Shop, they have stores in both OB and PB where you can grab a ton of summer must haves! Two brands I adore for suits are Roxy and Billabong. This season Billabong has a bunch of fun, bright color patterns that are adorable and super in this season! If you happen to be balling on a budget, don’t worry there are sooo many options when it comes to finding inexpensive suits. Zaful, one of the online stores that bombards your feed with sketchy ads nonstop, is actually a pretty reliable source! I’ve gotten multiple swimsuits from the brand and I’ve loved how every one of them fits! Other options for fun, bright prints with little cost are Forever 21 and Target! Believe it or not, Target has some real cuties. The suit featured in our Wednesday post this week is a Target original ladies for only $14.99! Say no more! 

Okay so how do we style the cutest summer outfits? Luckily it’s easy this season. What’s in right now is super simple pieces with accessories that spice it up! Every gal needs simple jean shorts. My go to pair right now are from PacSun. They have super cute boho, ripped styles for everyone whether you’re a light wash, dark, or color babe. Another way, my preferred way, to get the perfect high-waisted mom jean short look is to shop at the thrift store! Grab a couple of your girlies, head to the thrift store, search for the most unique, cool old school jeans, and have a fun night cutting the bottoms and DIYing the shorts of your dreams! What top should we pair with the jean shorts? Right now I’m in love with band tees. That’s another fun item you can thrift and simply cut to make it a crop top or even just tie it in a cute knot at the bottom. Tie-front tops are making their come back this season too! I’ve bought a few cute ones from both Urban Outfitters and American Eagle. Those two places, in addition to PacSun, are my go-tos for all summer tops! Lastly, you cannot go through summer without summer dresses!! Maxi dresses are the move ladiesssss. Perfect for a summer evening out on the town. Free people is serving up the cutest boho summer looks and, believe it or not, TJ Maxx has some really cute styles at such an affordable price!

As I said before chicas, accessories are important this summer! Look into getting fun sun hats, patterned scarfs, and lots of boho jewelry!! You aren’t going to catch me dead on a road trip this summer without a bag full of different hats and all my Kindness Gems jewelry! Our statement piece necklaces have by far been the most popular at the markets. They are soooo lightweight, adorable, and look perfect when layered, which many wouldn’t expect! Layering the statement piece with other simple necklaces is my advice if you want the perfect beachy, boho necklace look. On top of all that, every girl needs an anklet and a toe ring this summer!! Anklets are so cute and such a fun way to express yourself! Get a fun color that adds a pop to every one of your outfits! Kindness Gems is selling anklets in all colors – yellow, orange, green, blue. I personally love layering so I never wear less than 3! And toe rings?! Girl, with a fresh pedicure and a cute pair of flip-flops these toe rings are going to pop and be a subtle flex for the entire summer! There’s no way to go wrong with a Kindness Gems 14k gold-fill or sterling silver toe ring with your favorite gemstone!

Well, I’m beyond excited that the best season is on its way!! Even more excited to see all you cuties expressing yourselves and having fun! Come check us out at the San Diego markets to get your anklets and toe rings this weekend!
