Happy Mondaze! First of all, I would like to thank my friend, sister and artist, Jennifer Nguyen, on taking the time to help me shoot these awesome photos! Her photography is super dope and I want everyone to go check out her photography page and LIKE it! She always puts 110% into her work and it really shows! You can find her at J Nguyen Photography || Instagram

Sometimes you gotta let loose and dance….DANCE A LOT. I love dancing at a rave concert, getting lost in the music and forgetting about reality for those short 3 hours. And now I can dance in style thanks to Electric Tonight and their LED Flower Crown! Check out their amazing product and enter CHRISSLEE at the checkout to receive 20% off  your purchase!

Summer Garland Feat. Sam

Summer Garland on Make A Gif

We are smack dab in the middle of summer and suffering in the Texas summer heat, so I thought it was fitting to make a garland that fits this season’s personality! Sun, pool, popsicles and of course…SAM! This garland is pretty easy, breezy to make with three easy steps: print, cut, and tape!

And of course, Sam had to make her appearance.

VOILA!

I just decided to use thin twine for something simple… just to hang up for a small bbq-ing get together with fambam. I hope everyone has a fun and relaxing weekend! And I hope you enjoy these cute printouts by Kat! (Just click on the ones and view the full size)

Style Travels // July 4th Weekend Recap

Processed with VSCOcam with s2 preset

I took a small adventure with friends to my neighboring city of Austin, TX. One of the most creative cities I’ve ever visited…..(I haven’t visited many x_x) Here are some Insta-snaps of moments I captured through the eyes of my iPhone5.

Pendernales

Here is our first stop: Pendernales Falls…just an hour outside of Austin. It’s one of the most scenic hiking trails I’ve been to and it’s definitely a challenge. This was my third time back and it still amazes me every time. And I will still continue to go back!

We did some kayaking on the river and we went right when the sun was setting. It was a great way to end the day. And now cue the food pictures:

Austin is known for their food trucks and boy did we stop at each food truck park we could find. This picture was just one of many of the tasty food we tried. But their food trucks had no creative bounds and it was definitely fun to read all the unique menus! Any type of food you can think of Austin had a food truck for it!

Ramen is always a must when you travel with me. It’s my favorite type of food!

This is my favorite part of the trip. Yessssss…you better believe that ice cream was my favorite part. Second to ramen, ice cream is love! This little ice cream shop had unique flavors such as Honey Peaches & Rosemary and Lemon Lavender! I loved this place so much we went Saturday and Sunday ^_^

Hope everyone had a relaxing Independence Weekend // Follow me on Instagram @HEYCHRISSLEE to keep up with me daily!

The Red, White & Blues

Happy Early Birthday to my homie, America! I love this holiday and I can’t wait for the weekend to begin to start my July 4th adventures :) Here is my take on the red, white and blue. Just stayin’ casual as always. Stay tuned to the blog to see pictures of my weekend! (lower your expectations because I’m not traveling very far)

There is no such thing as too many prints! You can barely see, but my shorts have small polka dots on them! So basically I’m wearing all prints.

Boyfriends Are Allowed

Boyfriend on Make A GifI always stayed away from the boyfriend fit. But as of today, I am happy to say that boyfriends are allowed now! Took my chance on a $30 pair of American Eagle cropped boy fit and I actually love them. Being as short as I am, the crop doesn’t apply. Boo hoo, but I make it werk! My biggest concern for this style was my height, but I find that adding any heels to the look instantly takes the jeans from looking just oversized to being lazy chic. *thumbs up*

American Eagle top & denim
Rebecca Minkoff Mini tote (white version here)
And another classic piece I’ve added to my summer wardrobe is a white button up. This quarter sleeve or half sleeve? is the perfect length for Texas summer heat! Staying half cool while in the heat and staying half warm when I’m in the freezing buildings. Hope everyone has a good week! Keep posted for an upcoming summer DIY!

Holey Moley // Shirt DIY

holey5

I feel like I’m cheating. Because this DIY is way too easy. I just thought I’d share because we sometimes forget that we can recycle our old clothing. I’ve been seeing this distressed shirt all over Instagram and figured instead of buying a $50 dollar version of this shirt, I could just cut my $6 H&M shirt. and add a leather jacket and voila!

Go crazy with the scissors and judge where you want to cut the holes and how big you want the holes to be. It’s that simple!
