Dainty Hooligan- Fun & Flirty Clothing

Anyone who knows me probably knows that I am absolutely OBSESSED with Dainty Hooligan! When people don’t know what to get me for a present, a Dainty Hooligan gift card is pretty much a go-to. I first found their dresses on Pinterest and fell in love. I bought my first dress from them after visiting one of their stores and have been ordering from them ever since. From Sunday brunch to weddings, and prom (yes, I wore one of their dresses to prom!) to drinks, their clothes are perfect for anything and everything. These are just a few of my favorite tops, rompers and dresses from their store!

Every time I wear this roper I get compliments! I love how fun this pattern is and how easy it is to wear. I wear this to everything from brunch with my friends to after dinner drinks.

This top may be one of my favorite tops I’ve ever owed. I have to admit, I wasn’t the biggest fan when I saw it online, but after my mom convinced me how cute it was, I had to get it. And now I’m obsessed!

This was my first thing I ever got from Dainty Hooligan! I found their store on Pinterest and new that I had to get one of their dresses for my cousin’s wedding. I absolutely loved this color and the dress is AMAZING quality.

This maxi-dress is perfect for a girls night out! It’s open back and bright colors makes it fun and flirty.

This high-neck yellow dress is perfect for going to watch a musical or play. I paired this with some casual wedges, and everyone LOVED it!

This coral scalloped tank top has an open back, and it is so so cute. I probably wear this top the most, it’s so versatile! I can pair it with white jean shorts or jeans and it’s always so cute.

I wore one of Dainty Hooligan’s dresses to my junior prom in Singapore (they made it across the world)! I fell in love with the style of this dress, and the sparkles fit me perfectly. All my friends and family loved this dress on me. It was a magical dress for a magical night!

I bought this neon yellow romper because I loved the color. I wear this over a bikini to the beach all the time, or even with a romper for a casual, fun outfit.

I first wore this top while visiting Napa with my family, and it was perfect! It was sophisticated, but cute with a floral pattern.

This is a simple blue top, but with a spider web back. This goes with anything. Shorts or jeans, day or night. So easy to wear and super soft and comfy!

You can just see the top here, but this is a grey, high-neck dress with a subtle pattern. I’ve worn this to everything from exploring San Fransisco to attending professional events, and it works for everything!

This is by far my favorite dress from Dainty Hooligan! It has a semi open and tie back which makes this dress fun and flirty. It’s super lightweight and easy to wear to anything!

How to throw the BEST luau party

It’s finally finally FINALLY summer, which means time for endless pool parties and celebrations. My birthday just happens to be at the very beginning of summer (may 29th), and this year I also graduated from high school, so there was a lot to celebrate. I was trying to figure out what I wanted to do to celebrate everything in the midst of tons of craziness. Anyone who knows me knows that I’m in love with anything tropical, pineapple, or beach themed, so I thought that a luau party would be the perfect fit. I also decided to have my party during the day because we all want to be super tanned during the summer…don’t we? Are you planning on having a pool party/luau party anytime soon and are looking for some inspiration? Here is exactly what I did to throw mine and how you can plan yours! I’ll also link all the stores I bought from below.

Decorations:

Like I said, I’m obsessed with anything tropical (especially pineapples), so I already had tons of decorations. I used wood pineapple cutouts in multiple colors, a blue pineapple lamp, a “welcome to paradise” sign, and tons and tons of leis. I also had these pastel colored paper streamers that I hung up around a super cute “happy birthday” banner. For the cutlery, I found orange and pink flamingo stirrers from Flying Tiger in Tokyo, as well as some flamingo straws.

Food and Drinks:

Of course my parties have to include lot’s of good food, but since it was brunch, I kept it fairly light. We have cut watermelon and grapes, mini egg frittatas with lot’s of veggies, pasta salad, pineapple grilled chicken and of course funfetti cake (my favorite!!). The pineapple chicken was great and added another tropical layer to the party. To make it: marinate chicken breasts in pineapple juice, soy sauce, garlic, hot sauce and lime, then grill for 3 minutes on each side. For the drinks, we made mojitos and pineapple juice and malibu… and we had a bottle of rose. Tip: If you are having a party by the pool, avoid glass by getting plastic champagne glasses from the dollar store.

Clothing:

Because I knew we were going to be taking lot’s of photos, I chose my outfit very carefully. I ended up going with my black Cotton On bikini top with my hot pink Hollister bottoms. And on top of that I wore my O’Neill high-waisted shorts with a blue-purple Brandy Melville crop top. My friends came dressed similarly with a lot of them wearing cute cover-ups or sun dresses.

Photo Booth:

There was no way my party was happening without a DIY photo booth, so that’s exactly what I did. I found a blank wall by our pool and decked it out. We hung the “happy birthday” banner with the colorful streamers around it. When taking pictures, we put on leis and used the pineapples and other decorations as props. I had also found a blackboard in my room, so I decided to use it. When each of my friends and I took a photo, we used the blackboard to write a word that described us or the way we first met. All of those photos turned out being really cute!

If you’re planning on throwing a party or celebration soon, I highly suggest doing something like this! Here are all the links, and happy celebrating!
