Hey loves! Hope you all had a lovely weekend celebrating with your mamas and all the amazing women in your life. This weekend my family and I visited our local street market for Mother’s Day flowers, fresh fruit and veggies, and some shopping. We went to one at Fairview/Adams in Costa Mesa, which is open every Saturday from 9am – 2pm. Here’s a list of farmer’s markets in Orange County if you’re interested in stopping by and shopping local!
This cognac and aqua reversible faux leather tote I received from Brandzaffair was the perfect bag to bring with me to the market. It’s the perfect size to store all the essentials- wallet, keys, makeup bag, and any purchases you make. The fact that it’s also reversible means I get two bags in one and can easily transition depending on what outfit I’m wearing. I can’t wait to bring it with me on vacation this summer!
Typically I’m not a big coffee person, but waking up early meant I had to bring some along in my “I Woke Up Like This” travel tumbler from Between the Lines. Stay tuned and next week you will have the opportunity to have your very own mug to match! 😉
What I’m Wearing // American Eagle tee via TJ Maxx, Delia’s jeans via TJ Maxx, white converse, reversible Nordstrom tote c/o Brandzaffair, Kaitlyn initial necklace, Gorjana earrings via Rocksbox, White Dove ring and stacking bracelets, “I Woke Up Like This” travel mug c/o Between the Lines

It’s already the first Monday of May, can you believe it? 2015 is nearly to the halfway point and summer is so close I can almost taste it! If you’ve been keeping up with WWS you know I mentioned in my blogaversary post that I had some new collabs coming up and this is one I’m very excited about. That’s right, I am officially a Rocksbox It Girl!
I’m sure you’ve seen them all over your Instagram feed, but if not let me fill you in. Rocksbox is rental service that will ship a new box of jewels straight to your mailbox for only $19/month. Each box is filled with 3 designer pieces you can swap out anytime and as often as you like. All you have to do is take a quick style survey so that your stylist can choose which pieces best fit your style. The best part about being an insider is that you get a $10 shine spend credit every month to use towards discounted prices on the pieces you can’t part with!
About a week ago I received my first Rocksbox package and to be totally honest, I was underwhelmed with the jewelry. The bracelet and earrings were very similar to pieces I already owned, and the necklace wasn’t really my style. I felt awful but when I emailed Blair about it she was totally understanding and had no problem switching out my box for me. After retaking my survey, my new box was mailed to me in a few days and I couldn’t be more happy with my stylist’s new picks! She sent me a statement necklace and bracelet from the Rocksbox exclusive brand Perry Street along with some delicate geometric studs from Gorjana.
You can try Rocksbox out FREE for one month with the code “worldwidestylistaxoxo.” There’s absolutely no commitment required, so why not try it out? So ladies, copy that code and try Rocksbox out for yourself this May- you won’t regret it!

This weekend my blogger babe Bridget Gomez from Over the Bridge and I went on a little adventure to the Griffith Observatory in LA. I’m on the road to finishing up my GE’s with an Astronomy class right now, and was offered extra credit for visiting certain science-related museums. Bridget had been here once before while she was taking the class, so she showed me around the exhibits since it was my first time. It was already pretty crowded by the time we arrived so we didn’t stay for too long, but we were able to see all the highlights including the jewel wall, the pendulum, moon exhibits, and the live model of our solar galaxy where we got to weigh ourselves on each planet! It’s definitely a must-see for both tourists and LA natives.
It was a cloudy, drizzly Saturday so I wore my faux leather leggings, black Steve Madden booties, and a lightweight cardigan to keep me warm. This was the first week that SoCal really got to experience April showers, but I decided to style myself with a little pop of color with my sister’s tropical Kaitlyn tank to keep my look feeling more spring than fall/winter.
What I’m Wearing // Kaitlyn top c/o my sister, TJ Maxx leggings, Nordstrom Rack cardigan, Steve Madden booties, NY&Co. handbag (sold out), Kaitlyn & Laurenly necklaces, Honeycat ring and bracelet, Sonix phone case

Can you believe today marks WorldWideStylista‘s second blogiversary?! It seems like the last two years have gone by so fast. When I first started this blog, I had no idea what I was getting myself into. Although it is one of my favorite things to do in my free time, it also takes up a lot of time- whoever says blogging isn’t a job has obviously never done it before! Over these two years, I’ve learned about website technology, social media skills, my personal style, branding myself and so much more. It’s crazy to see how far I’ve come since my very first post!
In celebration of my two years blogging, I am excited to announce that I have a few upcoming collaborations, giveaways, and surprises planned that I will be sharing with you all very soon.
Stay tuned for blog updates by getting connected here:

Finding a good fitting pair of jeans is always a struggle, especially when you are petite. Normally I try to shop brands with petite sizing available like LOFT, Gap, or ASOS since it is a hassle to have to hem any pair from regular junior sizes. It is a rare occasion that I find denim that fits me well, so when I tried on these boyfriend jeans at Plato’s Closet I was shocked that the length actually fit me almost perfectly! I decided to roll them up for the day to go with my lace-up heels, but I could also wear them with flats, sandals or pumps rolled down as well.
Last week over spring break my friend and I got a chance to check out downtown Santa Ana. We had so much fun exploring the shops, streets, restaurants and of course finding these cool walls! (The graffiti wall we found by the Yost theater and the mural below off 5th and Sycamore.)

Happy Easter! Easter is one of my favorite times of the year because it is a constant reminder of how even through my flaws and imperfections, Jesus still loves and forgives me. Many believe that religion is about rules, restrictions, and judgement, but my church Mariners HB has totally changed my perspective on religion and showed me how walking with Jesus is about forgiveness, love, faith, and hope. Their Easter service really inspired and reminded me that despite all of life’s disappointments, He will always be there to bring light to the world.
In Jesus was life, and that life was the the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it (John 1:4-5).
Now here’s some photos of what I wore to our Easter celebration yesterday!
What I’m Wearing // ASTR top via Nordstrom Rack, Sans Souci lace shorts, Charlotte Russe statement necklace, F21 metallic sandals

Spring break is finally here and it’s about time that I hit the beach! Even though I live so close, it feels like I go less than people who live even farther away! It was so nice to have a day off from all the work and school craziness and just be able to enjoy the salt, sand and sunshine of Southern California. I haven’t been to Santa Monica since my spring break with Nicole, so it was really nice to be back again.
Not surprisingly, the beach was incredibly packed since many are on spring break right now and the boardwalk was buzzing with excitement. We got to see music performers, street art, exotic snakes and even a life size Elmo! At the end of the boardwalk we grabbed a late lunch at Mariasol, ordering some nachos and piña coladas that I had been craving all week. My friend/neighbor/coworker was nice enough to loan me this adorable romper and floppy hat for the day while we explored the boardwalk, beach and shops on 3rd Street Promenade.
