Every Thursday I see the #ThrowbackThursday hashtag all over instagram and I started thinking about where LoveNiki started and where it is now. Sharing my passion for dressing up has been so much fun. I’m excited to come up with new creative photo shoots and put together more outfits :) I use to think it was a little silly to be passionate about dressing up, but there’s never ever anything silly about doing what you love and following your heart.
I hope you guys enjoy this mini LoveNiki fashion flashback!

I get to go shopping Sunday! It’s been a while since I last did some serious shopping. I’m definitely going to be hunting down deals to get the most bang for my buck. That’s sort of what inspired today’s post. I wish every season meant a brand new wardrobe but the reality of it is that, I have to find ways to rock seasonal stuff all year round. It allows you to have more outfit options no matter what time of year it is.
Major props to my mom for playing my photographer this morning! I think she did a great job. And yes, these shots would have been extra cool if I drove a Lambo or something but I don’t. Lol. I drive an ’98 honda civic and I love it! It’s the first and only car I’ve ever owned :)
This outfit was inspired by…..the renaissance period! I love the renaissance faire so much. The costumes, the axe throwing, the everything! I was able to rent my costume there but I did purchase the furry hood shown above from a very creative and talented vendor. She made it out of ugly old sweaters, cool huh? This faire runs until Sunday May 19th and is located in Irwindale, CA. If your interested in going CLICK HERE for more info and to buy tickets. It’s definitely worth the price of admission!

I hope your Easter was wonderful! Yesterday’s outfit was a last minute ensemble and it cost me $200, not. Lol. The dress is a million years old and the cardigan has been around a few years but I had surprisingly never worn them together. I feel like only having a few minutes to put something together can lead to some unexpectedly cute outfits….most of the time.
Did you spend a lot on an Easter dress?
Back to the daily grind! I wanted to share a few of my weekend purchases and my outfit. I bought the wallet a few weekends ago but haven’t had a chance to share it. I am in love with both items, they’re so me. Lol. Now, I know they look pricey and well, they are. BUT….there’s something I’ve learned when it comes to saving money. Sometimes buying a cheap item will cost you more than a pricey one, in the long run.
Case in point, I’ve broken a lot of cheap wallets. Lol. I still buy a few to have options for different events but when it comes to the main wallet I carry around I decided I wanted to invest in one that’ll likely last 2+ years. Same idea goes for the shirt.
Hope you and a great weekend! And be sure to check out the new ABOUT section!
The San Diego Safari Park is pretty awesome. Well, if you like animals it’s awesome. It’s a zoo taken to the next level. And your admission fee goes to helping out all the animals you see so it’s easy to justify spending $40 to get in. You can also pay from exclusive safaris that focus on different animals.
If you’re planning to be in San Diego soon, definitely check it out!
