Morning, Sunshines! It's another sunny, So Cal Wednesday, and I'm off to the beach for a little fun before getting down to the nitty gritty of college packing. Only three more weeks, can you believe it!?

Today I am featuring this beautiful floral dress from Romwe. I converted it to a high low hem temporarily, and am thinking of having a friend help me make it permanent - I love the look! Wouldn't this be so pretty for a garden party?

I am featuring a new company today, called DressLink! They were kind enough to send me this poppin' pink clutch, and I must say, I am in love. How great is that color with the gold accent? #somuchlove! This beauty comes in every color imaginable, and is only $4.75!

Have you ever found a necklace, or a dress, or perhaps even a crazy hat that you knew was completely impractical, yet you went nuts over it anyway? A few weeks ago at the fair, I found these stunning chandelier earrings and fell in love. I told myself I would make an outfit for them if need be - I mean come on, they steal the show!

I am so excited to have joined the ambassadors program with Karina Dresses! I'll be featuring one of their stunning frocks on the blog once a month, which means you girls will get a great look at what adorable pieces they have in stock! I featured another Karina Dress a few months back and talked about how much I loved it - this dress is no exception! It truly is like wearing a comfy pajama dress. Plus, my favorite feature? It doesn't wrinkle! #somuchlove This particular dress is on sale right now, so be sure to snag it before it's gone!

This adorable wallet is from 10 Dollar Mall, an online clothing and accessory company where nothing costs over $10! I've been needing a new wallet desperately ( my other one is probably around eight years old), and I adore the sophisticated look of this little purse.

Oh, I almost forgot! I recently whitened my teeth and wrote a blog post all about it - if you are curious about my process, you can check that out here.

Teeth Whitener
IMG_7776

It's amazing what a huge impact a white smile can have. Unfortunately, coffee dates aren't very kind to our pearly whites. I've had teeth whitening on my agenda for quite a while now, so when Smile Brilliant offered me a chance to give an honest review of their product, my answer was an emphatic, "yes!" Ps. There's a giveaway at the end of this post, so keep reading!

Here's how it works. You receive a packet in the mail with two blue molds and some white and blue goo (not gonna lie, mixing those two together was pretty fun). After you mix the Catalyst and Base Paste together, you press them into the mold, stick it in your mouth, bite down and take a few minutes to let the mold harden. After that, you pop the molds in the mail, and within about a week you receive a set of custom whitening trays, whitening gel and desensitizing gel. If you want to know more about the process, you can watch an easy to follow video here.

The whitening process is super simple! You basically just fill the trays with the desensitizing gel, pop them in your mouth for a minimum of 30 minutes, take them out and rinse them, fill them with the whitening gel and wear them for as long as you'd like. You can continue to repeat the process until your teeth are as white as you fancy. Even my sister joined in on the fun. Chloe noticed a pretty natural difference since her teeth are already pretty white. Me on the other hand? My teeth have made a vast improvement. We are still continuing to whiten, but I thought I would share our progress photos with you. It's amazing how much more confident you feel with whiter choppers! If you want to pick up your own kit today, use the promo code "intothewoods" to get 5% off!

Pink in the Park

After living in California my entire life, and shooting five photo sessions here for other people, I'm finally doing an outfit post in Balboa Park! This place is too gorgeous for words, and the photo worthy backdrops are too many to count! We were in San Diego to drop my sister off at the airport, and figured we'd make a day of it (and snap a few pics ;). I also put together a little video of things I love about Balboa, so if you fancy, you can check it out here

In other news, I get my wisdom teeth pulled today, yippy skippy. I keep hearing horror stories, so I'll admit, I'm a little nervous. Plus, I'm not particularly looking forward to acting like a crazy person when I wake up from anesthesia.

I'm guilty. I raided Mom's closet. I must say, occasionally borrowing pieces from a family member's wardrobe can be great fun! This is a blouse that my mom has had for probably close to 20 years. Does it not look like it was just snagged off a rack at H&M yesterday?

I am so excited to be featuring a skirt from Honey Bliss Clothing! If you love dainty, feminine, girly pieces, you'll die over this Etsy shop! There's ice cream, floral prints and gingham galore. The craftsmanship on this skirt is impeccable - the structure is absolutely stunning. On a more random note, Honey Bliss also has a radio website, which features a compilation of all sorts of lovely indie music. You can fuel your summer playlist here.

How stunning is this necklace from Happiness Boutique? Lately I've been a sucker for a good statement necklace, which is why I'm crazy about this boutique! What's more, they are quite reasonably priced, and shipping is free so if you've been wanting to find just the right bauble for your next Summer soiree, definitely stop by and take a look. Plus, they have a fabulous rewards program where you can win some great stuff while you shop!
