GOODBYE WINTER, HELLO SUMMER

One of the many reasons why I moved out to Los Angeles five years ago was because of the refreshing So Cal weather. I mean it's still Winter but it's 85 degrees out! Forget the sweaters and coats, it's time to wear kimonos, shorts and hats. 
Recently, I got to collaborate with a few amazing companies- The first one is Bijou, she carries "One Size Fits All" kimonos. I remember the first time I stumbled upon Bijou, I instantly fell in love with all of the unique fabrics that they carried. Everything reminded me of the ocean and as you all know, I am a lover of the beautiful sea. 
And of course to any outfit, you need to add some lavishing accessories! 
I am beyond obsessed with the necklace that I paired with this outfit. I got to collaborate with Lilac PR and Love + Leather as well and I am beyond thankful that they sent me this gem because 
I have never seen any necklace like this before in my life. I adore the metal, leather and bold colors that Love + Leather uses for their necklaces. It's the perfect statement piece to any outfit.

RED

Well it's that time of the month. The day where flowers, candy, teddy bears and couples expose their love times 10. The one and only Valentine's Day!

If you are a single gal like myself, I will be enjoying this Sunday by treating myself to some pretty flowers, brunch with a few of my friends and most likely going to the movies to watch "How To Be Single." -- I mean you have to.

I still wanted to post a little Valentine's Day outfit inspiration for you girls that need to find something to wear on the special day.
I recently collaborated with @BAILEYBLUECLOTHING and let me tell you, they have the best dresses for any occasion! Like this red one that I am wearing. You can wear this little number not only in the day time but dress it up at night for dinner with your beau as well. Just simply add a leather jacket and some lipstick for that night look. And of course add some cute accessories to complete the look. Pair up the dress with jewelry, the cutest shoes that you have and BAM, Valentine's Day look is complete.

DEFINING DMD

The past month has been quite busy, hence my lack of posting a blog post in the past few weeks but here we are already on the second month of the year. 

The other day I was thinking about the first time I started blogging, from day one to the present now, so much has happened. So many opportunities, challenges and adventures that I got to experience. In a way, blogging shaped me into the person I am today. It is a HUGE part of my life and I am forever thankful that I pursued blogging. Sure, there is so much competition out there in this industry but to me, I just want to inspire people to be different- It's okay to be a little weird at times, to stand out from the crowd. I want my voice to be heard. I want to inspire people to express their selves in their style.

To be honest, I'm not sure how I came up with the name "DARKMINTDAISY." All I remember is sitting in my apartment in Pasadena, doodling on my notepad, trying to come up with a clever blog name that screams CATHIE. 
After 20 minutes of spitting out names here and there, DARKMINTDAISY just came to mind.

I would describe my style as an adventurous ocean lover, who likes to add a little hint of bohemian or feminine flare here and there ;)

Give me a little beach dress and I'll add a black fringe jacket to the mix along with one of my all time favorite accessories- A HAT, while wearing so many unique jewels. I am beyond obsessed with the pretty rings, I can wear these babies everyday. And do you guys know how long I've been wanting a black fringe jacket! I've already worn this garment so many times since I got it. It's just the perfect piece to throw on. This outfit basically describes the definition of DARKMINTDAISY.
