My Obsession: Bows

Those who see me on a daily basis know that it is rare when I am not wearing a bow somewhere in my outfit. Whether it is on my shoes, necklace, or clothing; bows are my go to accessory. I would always use bows as a trim for my garments for school, as shown above and on my illustration here. I'm even trying to perfect the bow hairstyle, but it is hard to do it on yourself. What is your current obsession?

Rock and Roll

Yesterday I went to the Hard Rock Cafe's practice opening before today's real opening. I had never seen a restaurant with such an interactive setting. From the giant touch screen that allows you to scroll through thousands of famous band memorabilia to the mini screens at the booths that lets the diners vote on which music video will be played next; there is no limit of things to do. To top it all off, the food at the Hard Rock is amazing from the nachos to the apple burger I ordered. I already can't wait to go back.

The interactive screen was too big to fit in one shot.

Our Favorite Anytime Treat

Although it was well over 100 degrees today, there was nothing that could stop us from making our favorite dessert. These Oreo cupcakes are some of our favorites, not only because they are fun to make but they are just as fun to eat. Top off each one with an Oreo and you're off to cupcake heaven. We also sprinkled a few just because we couldn't resist.

Give Me The Short Version

I'll be the first to admit that shorts are not a part of my daily wardrobe. Give me a dress or skirt any day. But after seeing Lauren Conrad in a pair, I immediately bypassed her hair (usually the first thing I check when seeing a picture of her) and focused on her California-cool style of shorts and sandals. So since it is finally starting to feel like summer in SoCal (I'm counting down the days until fall already), here are a few pairs that I would not mind incorporating into my short-less closet. Now I'm off to go do the Miniskirt Workout as Lauren has given me something to aspire to.

1. ANTHROPOLOGIE: Level 99 Carolina Shorts; $68.00
2. ALICE + OLIVIA: Rolled Cuff Tab Shorts; $198
3. F21: Frayed Denim Shorts; $22.80

Walk It Off

As I was getting ready to take my walk today, I realized I had a surprising lack of activewear in my closet. I usually rotate between three pairs of pants and my collection of old highschool shirts. The following are a few pieces that have caught my eye and would definitely make my walks more enjoyable. They might even give me inspiration to workout when I don't feel up to it. And who doesn't need a little inspiration now and then?

1. NIKE: Women's Running Shoe; $85.00 (In my favorite color)
2. F21: F6298 Sunglasses; $5.80 (The bigger the better to keep the sun out of your face)
3. VICTORIA'S SECRET: Off-The-Shoulder Tee; $32.50 (To continue my off-the-shoulder shirt obsession)
4. APPLE: Ipod; $199.00 (I never leave home without it)
5. F21: Multi Elastic Headband; $1.50 (The extra elastics are perfect for keeping hair in place)
6. VICTORIA'S SECRET: Vintage Slim Pant; $25.00 (Trendy and sporty)

Cupcakes and Cashmere Love

Before starting Daily Cup of Fashion, I was an avid blog reader. One of the most influential and captivating blogs I have come across is Cupcakes and Cashmere. I love the way Emily uses color in her beautiful pictures and the amazing recipies she posts. So for today's outfit post I thought I would recreate one of my favorite pictures she has published on her blog. I can't get enough of this romper. So if you have yet to check out Emily's blog, just click here and prepare to be amazed.

Hearts & Flowers

Woven top: F21; Sunglasses: F21; Jewlery: F21;
Jeans: LEVI's; Shoes: Steve Madden

Although we rarely accessorize (maybe just one chunky ring and that's it), today was a perfect day to try something new. During a long day of shopping, we decided to choose one item we thought looked interesting, but would never wear ourselves. We highly recommend playing this little game on your next trip. It might yield astonishing results. For example, this woven heart print shirt surprised us because of how much we loved it. Either one of us has to buy a duplicate or we will be forced to share it.

Viva Las Vegas

The cutest mirror I have ever seen.

I'm finally back from Vegas and I had a great time. I listened to all of you and didn't forget to bring my sunglasses. Thankfully, because it was 108 degrees the whole time I was there. When I wasn't swimming I was out at Freemont Street souvenir shopping (I found the cutest orange bow ring that I still regret not buying) or eating the best nachos ever. It was great to visit the parts of Vegas I have never seen before; I found awesome new places to explore.

P.S. Happy Fourth of July everyone!

If it were purple, it would have been mine.

You can find the strangest foods at Freemont Street.

We tried so hard to finish the whole thing.
