TwinkleDeals. floral jumpsuit.

every once in a while you come across something amazing...like this tropical print jumpsuit from TwinkleDeals! i love the colors, i love the print, i love the style...it's perfect for summer events that are a little more dressy. i kept the jewelry to a minimum and the shoes neutral, but added oomph with a fun fur bag.

the one issue i had with this jumpsuit is that the straps were sewn wrong. it's hard to explain in writing, but in a nutshell, i can't adjust the straps. they are currently pinned, which is a bummer because the criss-cross back was a nice detail.

how to you feel about tropical prints?
would you rock this head-to-toe print?

some of my beauty picks below:


minion noir.

when i saw these sunglasses at Patty's Closet, i instantly thought...minions! they are big and over-the-top, but super fun. it's the perfect statement accessory for this simple black romper, also from Patty's Closet.

summer is coming to an end for us as the minis are headed back to school this week. i hate for it to end, but i'm satisfied with how we spent our time. scenes from the weekend below.

how was your weekend?

me want banana!

just a little windy. 
geez...how many times have i eaten mexican this summer?
 paddle boarding followed by this pretty sunset in haleiwa (you can still catch it on periscope @oomph). it got even better...as we were driving home, cars were pulling over on the side of the road. we looked back to see that the sunset had turned the sky a vibrant red-orange. you can see how it change from the above as well as see all the cars pulling over to get a shot of it on snapchat (@rockoomph).

here's a few great accessories:


basic with a twist.

when it comes to basics, it's all about the details. the twist front (which is hard to see in the photos) adds oomph to this basic black top. i'm wearing it here with a printed black and white skort; both are from Patty's Closet. and for a little color and excitement, i'm using one of my favorite leopard clutches from love & sunshine.

whites + brights.

happy prime day!
if you haven't heard, amazon prime members get exclusive access to deals today. i heard the deals are even better than black friday's deals. to sweeten the day, walmart is jumping on this opportunity to snag some customers by hosting their own rollback deals. it's a battle of sales that's definitely worth checking out.

i found this top in my recent friendship swap bag and automatically thought of pairing it with white to freshen up the colors. it's been extremely humid here, so shorts have been the only option lately.

how's your summer weather?

last weekend we hit up Kit n Kitchen, a restaurant that specializes in spaghetti. i came here years ago when they first opened and haven't been back until now. i enjoyed the food then, and it was pretty good this time again.

this is their signature pillow toast swerved with sweet cream and maple syrup + a scoop of ice cream, which we had for dessert. we also had their garlic pillow toast with our dinner.


JORD wood watch.

are timepieces a thing of the past?
i've run across a few people who said they didn't need a watch because they had their phone. while it's true that you can find the time on your phone, i'd have to dig thru my bag to find the phone and press the home button to light up the screen. two steps vs. a quick glance at my wrist.

what if you were surfing in the morning before work...how would you know when to come in? would you have your phone on you? likely not, but a water resistant watch would come in handy.

what about fashion, style, and status? watches are a statement of one's style, and a fashion accessory that both men and women can enjoy.

so to answer the question...timepieces are not a thing of the past. there will always be a need (and want) for quality watches.

do you wear a watch on the daily?

i love watches and have always worn watches. i am not a collector of watches because i usually invest in one [at a time] that i love and want to wear on the daily. the latest has been this beautiful wood watch from JORD. i chose maple because it's neutral for my skin tone and versatile enough to be worn with many colors and styles (just check my instagram!).

the details are simply amazing, the watch is very lightweight, and each comes in a beautiful box.
