Spring into the Season with These! March 28 2016

If you haven't yet checked out our selections of I'm With The Band headbands, you should get on that!  Everyone is springing forward with the turban trend, and we hope you are too.  Of course we stocked up on a few blue hues that remind us of our Cali waters and beautiful skies: Our MaldivesAranyani, and Dominica stretch and scarf style turbans resemble Cali's serene vibes.  We are also loving the backside details on our Candy, Cerridwen, and Bhoga scarf turbans.

We knew you couldn't have just one, and these mentioned are only a handful!  Head on over to our shop to browse the entire selection for this coming season.  Our Capelli Band flower crowns are also great hair accessories for these spring and summer months.  Featured are our Purple Capelli and Rose Capelli crowns by Garden of Sins which are stunning paired with your fav beach swimmie or casual cover up.

What We're Loving: Spring Trends March 28 2016

So what's trending this season?

Hapers Bazaar introduced their "Hit Your Stride" campaign a few weeks ago, and we want in on it!  Well, to tell you the truth, we are already in on it.  Bronze goddess, Camilla Akron models a knit beige Calvin Klein Collection sweater and complementing beige sleek tattered trousers.  Though stunning and captivating, this featured look will run you close to $17,000 (and we're not even including the $740 Charlotte Chesnais earrings)! 

 
Hey, you can bring your jaw back up and take a breath.  If you are interested in recreating this look with quality, affordable fashions, our Beige Short Sleeve Crochet Top pairs beautifully with our Nude Lace pants or Nude Lace pants with full lining (all by Oh! So Cali Clothing).  And if you are interested in taking this Moroccan Desert look to the next level, we suggest adding our Evergreen ring by DKPI and our One Wish earrings by Gena Myint.  With gemstones resembling precious emerald and garnet, each piece is effortlessly regal.

March Madness: Hot Slam Dunk Items March 18 2016

March Madness is here, and what does that mean?  Well, hoops and basketballs no doubt.  But we want to share with you our slam dunk items that are hot hot hot for spring and versatile for any occasion...like a b-ball game perhaps?  Actually, you may not want to step on the court in our fab swim top selection, but it's too cute not to mention, and it's a total three-pointer.

 

Our Coronado bandeau by Cabana Anna Swimwear says party in the front and party in the back!  The frontal bow is flirty and feminine while the elastic double cross-back strap adds another playful detail that puts fun and flair in your basic black bandeau.

We agree, you may want to lay(er)up in this swim top before taking to the stands.  It just may be a bit nippy in the court without a cover up is all.  Our Madie dress by aiLA will do the trick and certainly score some points with your friends.  Its mini length and lightweight fabric complement its long-sleeved, trapeze shape and provides for endless styling options. 

What's a winning collection without a third hot item?  We consider our Hold Fast to Dreams necklace by Gena Myint a "Triangle Offense."  Every cut serves a purpose. The amethyst triangle pendant and delicate gold plated chain cohesively form a striking statement piece for your wardrobe...and it's now on sale I might add!  

Happy March Madness. We hope you enjoy the NCAA college basketball tournament!

Accessories Your Closet Needs March 04 2016

First things first.  The Lakshmi Headband.  Every gal needs one of these to tame those troublesome fly-aways while looking fabulous in the process.  For the days in between washes when our hair is...less than ideal, our fun, printed headbands like the Lakshmi keep us looking fresh and feeling our best.  They are also super convenient for slipping on right before a workout to keep that hair at bay!  We recommend our turban styles as well like the Havana and Ibiza Stretch for an Indie vibe.  

Second.  Every closet needs some intricate jewelry to spice up basic numbers like solid tees and tanks.  Our Geometric Chevron and Chevron Aztec Triangle earrings are sure to do the trick.  Bold, geometric shapes are trending now more than ever; the Aztecs certainly knew how to impress with their plethora of beautiful statement pieces.  Gold jewelry was very common among the Aztecs, while turquoise stones and feathers were treasured the most.  Our golden Turquoise Triangle earrings add that pop of color that was worn so proudly and regally way back when.  

And what more?  For the days when perhaps you are neither out for a jog, nor channeling your inner goddess, simply grab one of our BDDesigns tote bags like our Fruit Farm White and Palm Garden White totes for all your shopping needs.  These sturdy bags are excellent for carrying farmer's market finds and for storing groceries from your local vendors.  Re-usable and super adorable!

Accessories Every Closet Needs

Office Style February 11 2016

This black and navy combo has all you need to stand out at the office.  Like pictured, apply a deep fuschia lip color to complement the moonlight tones of your sophisticated ensemble.  Our Deep Blue Open Front Top by Oh! So Cali Clothing pairs exceptionally well with any solid or printed fabrics, and can be styled easily with skirts, sleek pants, and statement jewelry pieces like our Wrapped in Moonlight Bracelet by DKPI.  And don’t be shy.  Our midnight maiden is bold, enthusiastic, and takes hold of any opportunities in the workplace.  What are you waiting for?  Don’t just take a seat at your chair, but take a stance and share a glance with your peers as you walk through that hall in head-to-toe confidence.

Los Angeles Designer Cabana Anna Swimwear Debuts in Serene Sky Boutique January 14 2016

(Newport Beach, California, January 14, 2016) Online retailer, Serene Sky Boutique, has launched a new designer just in time for the Spring and Summer seasons. It is only natural that we have paired with Los Angeles designer, Anna Finch, to bring her gorgeous and playful swimwear into our California-influenced boutique: Cabana Anna Swimwear.

All Cabana Anna Bikinis truly embody a carefree lifestyle full of colors and prints for all fashions and styles. We love the flirty and colorful patterns that are perfect for winter getaways, spring break or endless summers. Amongst making you feel beautiful at the beach, Cabana Anna Swimwear promotes a strong mission to fight child labor laws and expose the horrible overseas labor conditions that many still face today. All bikinis are fair trade, thus promoting positive and beneficial lifestyles to those who create these gorgeous, playful pieces.

Serene Sky Boutique symbolizes a free spirit attitude and we feel that bikinis are the perfect way for everyone of all shapes and sizes to express the same positive lifestyle while feeling and looking amazing!

Necklace and Sweater Pairings January 12 2016

Winter is finally here and so is the drop in the California temperature that many of us have been waiting from! 

It's time to break out your cutest sweaters and shop our store of unique necklace designs to really complete your perfect snuggly-chic outfit. 

Your cutest fitted wool sweater could be paired with a warm gold chain necklace with a unique pop of color. Las Islas Cíes Neckalce by Gena Myint is the perfect example of this piece, especially with its unique double chain detail at the front finished with a beautiful pop of turquoise.

For warmer colors and looser fitting sweaters, a simple gold detailed necklace could work wonders for an outfit, such as the Geometric Triangle Waffle Necklace by Silk Purse, Sow's Ear. Beautiful white sweaters and turtleneck-styles could be beautifully paired with a longer necklace.

Hold Fast to Dreams by Gena Myint is a great piece for slouch or turtleneck sweater, because the last detail stone at the bottom makes a bold statement on such a simple, yet, long chain.

Now go shop our necklaces and create your own amazing necklace and sweater pairings!

We can't wait to see them! Tag #shopserenesky on Instagram.

Meet Blogger Fave: Hi Tea Style September 27 2015

Tell me about yourself.
We are sisters from Hawaii who love fashion and traveling. We both have full-time jobs and two children each so we blog in the little free time we have. It's something fun for us to do together. 
Describe your style.
We have a very simple, basic style. Living in Hawaii is very hot for most of the year so we're usually in shorts, tanks, and dresses. Traveling, especially to cooler places, is fun because we get to wear things we usually can't wear here in Hawaii. 
What made you interested in blogging?
Our friend has a blog and mentioned that because we love fashion so much, we should start a fashion blog. We had no idea what blogging was about. It took us a while but we finally did it and are glad we did. We've been having a lot of fun! 
What do you like about Serene Sky Boutique?
We like how Serene Sky features different designers. You know there will always be something different and unique. 
What are your favourite Serene Sky Boutique products? 
We really love the Gena Myint pieces. We love her designs and how they are inspired by her world travels. 
(Editor Note: Meet our brand ambassadors from Hawaii! Follow their blog and instagram for more style inspiration!)

Style Trials by Blogger Amber But Better September 23 2015

Serene Sky Boutique has collaborated with Denver, Colorado Blogger Amber But Better. We start off Fall with two great looks....

Well it's been awhile since I've done a Style Trial, but fall is coming (FYI I'm so excited!) and I've bought this new blush/pink sweater and thought I'd find some different ways to wear it. Pink is not a color I gravitate to often so I needed some inspiration :)

 

Style Trials: Banana Republic Sweater


Outfit 1 - This outfit was work inspired, because I've definitely been in a rut when it comes to work clothes recently. But fall is the perfect time to switch it up because layers!!! Oh how I love them.


For this look I wanted some nice ankle pants to make it work appropriate. Then these sneaker-loafer hybrid shoes are some I've been obsessed with recently... like I need these in my life! And finally the jean jacket for some added warmth in the office and it add a little more color.


Outfit 2 - Another fashion issue I've been facing is figuring out how to wear my clothes for a night out, dinner, or just outside of work without looking professional, I hope that makes sense. I just want a way to make my clothes do double-duty I guess.


I figure, what says fun and nighttime more than a leather (or pleather) jacket? A more tough biker jacket would add warmth for those fall nights and spice up the pink sweater a bit. Then dark skinny jeans and black ankle boots keep the outfit sleek and a bit sexy.


Jewelry, of course, is important to add personality, sparkle, and fun to an outfit. I really liked how this triangle necklace works with the neckline and the weave of the sweater. I also love how it can multi-task for either outfit, day or night!


As always when I do these posts, I think I've created a shopping list for myself as much as ideas for you all! But I am excited for the fall season with changing colors, cooler days, warm drinks, boots, football, and the start of the holidays. I get excited just thinking about it. But now at least I have a plan more or less for my fall uniform and I'm ready to go!


At amberbutbetter.blogspot.com I am continually experimenting with fashion, decor, and cruelty-free beauty to find my story, my style, my beauty and bring my readers along for the journey!

Meet Blogger Fave: The South Coast movement August 10 2015

Tell me about yourself

 I am a first time mom and full time blogger. I love fashion, travel, photography and am so excited to be part of the blogger community. My husband is and I own a few OC businesses and love life living in South OC!

Describe your style

My style changes day to day. I love heels and wish it was more acceptable to wear them daily, but it doesn't quite fit with the beach vibe of the city I live in. I have a more simple style but I love to add designer accessories to make a $10 tee look like a million bucks! Comfort is always key and if I don't feel comfortable or confident in something I don't care how "on trend" it is, I won't wear it!

What made you interested in blogging?

I have been following local bloggers since I graduated college in 2009. During wedding planning and decorating my house I would stalk blogs for inspiration and decided one day that I could post inspiration from my own life!


What do you like about Serene Sky Boutique?

I love that Serene Sky boutique is a local company, I love supporting business owners in my community and I love that the pieces are budget friendly!

What are your favorite Serene Sky Boutique products?

 I love the dresses, so many fun and flirty options!

 

(Editor's Note: Be sure to follow Amanda on Instagram and check out her blog. Shop their open back dolman top they styled!


Pop of Purple August 06 2015

Fringe is definitely a fun way to spice up any outfit, and we are seeing a lot of it lately as it is trending in fashion.  Feeling bold?  Wear our Zina Fringe Skirt Leggings by Leg Candy Apparel.  If you are feeling extra daring and want to make a statement, pair these fab leggings with one of our fringe-inspired jewelry pieces.  Our If Not For You necklace and Dream a Little Dream of Me necklace by Gena Myint, Chrysler Art Deco earrings by Silk Purse, Sow's Ear, and Hippie Boho Fringe anklet by Garden of Sins are certainly eye-catchers.

Designer Q&A: Alejandra Viana of Leg Candy Collection August 01 2015


1. How did you start your collection?
I began Leg Candy in 2010 without the tradition of formal fashion design school. As a young entrepreneur I was faced with many challenges that I conquered with hands on training and real world experiences. These challenges would not have been overcome otherwise.

The idea solely began with the dissatisfaction of the fit of the common legging on the market.

2. Where do you get design inspiration?
The concept of Leg Candy came about while walking the streets of London. The cold weather, funky style, combination of colors, and crazy prints got me thinking. Lets sweeten up some leggings!
Thus... LEG CANDY was born.

The LegCandy Collection has expanded and is now on the 3rd collection, a full complete black and white collection offering dresses, skirts, tops, and cut out leggings!

3. What are your favorite designs?
Ina Bodysuit is my absolute favorite. It is unique and daring.

4. What do you like about Serene Sky Boutique?
I love the versatility of the products and the collaboration amongst the Serene Sky team.

5. What are you dying to do next?
I would love to collaborate with other likeminded individuals or even become a mentor to help other young women fulfill their dreams.

I am also in the process of getting my degree in business marketing, so I would love to get started on another small business.

Meet Blogger Fave: Stay Styled July 30 2015

1. Tell me about yourself

Well, I’m lucky to say that I’m a true California girl. I’ve grown up here my whole life and I absolutely love it and couldn’t see myself living anywhere else. I attended a local college and graduated with my bachelors degree in Business with a concentration in Marketing. I currently live with my fiancé in south Orange County and we’re planning our wedding which is November 14, 2015. I couldn’t be more excited to start a new chapter in my life!

2. Describe your style.

This is a question I struggle with because I feel like my style is constantly evolving. Some days I’m dressed up with a girly chic style and other times I’m channeling a more laid back beach look. I love that clothes are a way to express yourself without having to say anything. I enjoy sharing my different outfits with everyone since fashion is too fun to stick to one style. So, whether it’s dressing up or keeping it casual believe you can be ‘stay styled’ in every aspect in your life.

3. What made you interested in blogging?

 I followed many bloggers on Instagram and Pinterest for outfit and style inspirations. After some time I thought I could totally do this and I know I would enjoy it.

4. What do you like about Serene Sky Boutique?

I love that Serene Sky Boutique is a local business based in Orange County. My soon to be husband is starting his own business and I see the hard work that he puts into it every day. With that said, I’m a firm believer in supporting your community!   

5. What are your favorite Serene Sky Boutique products?

My favorite Serene Sky Boutique products are the different selections of Poncho and Drape tops. I love that I can wear them to work and out with my friends. It’s an easy transition from leaving work to happy hour without having to do too much.

Meet TingTing and See Her Favorites from Serene Sky July 27 2015

Hello everyone, this is Tingting and I am originally from southern part of China. When I was a little girl, I was always curious about how wide and splendid the world is and dreaming one day I could explore the world deeply. That’s why I took much of my spare time travelling around the world. Besides that, I have a rich life experience in four different countries.

After finishing my secondary school in China, I went to Singapore for my high school. Then I decided to go the UK to do my undergraduate studies and successfully graduated from University of Leeds last summer. During my life in the UK, I felt my footprint from southern part of England, Brighton, to Western Wales, Aberystwyth.

Currently I am doing an Accelerated Certificate Program in the University of California, Irvine, meanwhile preparing for my master degree. I will be doing Master of Fine Arts in Arts Leadership at Seattle University in this Fall. These experiences have made me become a more open minded and adaptive person.

Beyond that, I am a person who always seek for new, creative and trendy stuffs to enrich my life. For instance, I would lining up for two hours to satisfy my food cravings; searching eagerly around different places just to get my desired piece of skirt; and spending two hours in browsing around a small vintage and exotic store.

I’m so glad Serene Sky Boutique could pick me as her intern, since I can get in touch with more new stuffs regarding fashion and life here. Also, being aware of some new fashion designers and bloggers. More importantly I have learned a lot about how to run and maintain an online business. I’m really appreciate her for giving me this opportunity.    

In the future, I think I will continue exploring more different places and attempting more interesting and new things. Also, looking forward my new life in Seattle.

 

In regard to my favourite products of Serene Sky, Ten Tomorrow is the first one that I would like to pick out. This mini white little dress give me all I want in a look.

It’s simple but chic, flowy and sexy at the same. Simply put on the dress paired with Geometric Triangle Waffle Necklace by Silk Purse, Sow’s Ear, and complete the look by wearing a sporty like sandal or platform.

Another one I would like to pick out is ALEXIS Pencil Skirt in Ivory colour by Ten Tomorrow. It’s a perfect skirt for all kinds of occasions. Moreover, It can be easily styled with various tops depends on what types of look do you want. I love the design of pockets and the length of the skirt. It is an ideal and timeless piece that last for life. An epic look could not be complete without styling with appropriate jewelries.

This Fashion With A Cause Bracelet  by According to Kimberly will make the every look more feminine and youthful.
