SIMPLY TANDYA

Is it just me, or has this year flown by? It feels like we just celebrated Christmas, and now we are at the end of July! I really hate how fast time flies, but I am very excited for the next few months! I have decided to change paths in my career (I'll have a whole blog post on this later), and over the next few months, I plan to travel!

I seriously had my first passport before I turned one,  and I am so glad that I can now travel at will. 

Here's a breakdown of my trips so far.

Trip 1: New York! My girlfriends and I usually plan our annual trips around June/July and this time we are going to New York! It will be more of a dual trip because we are also celebrating a Bachelorette Party! This is my first friend who is getting married and I am SO excited for this.

Trip 2: Portugal and Spain. I haven't been to Portugal for almost five years! I'll be in Faro in August and will take a road trip to the coast of Spain.

Trip 3: Iceland! I am so excited for this trip since I have never visited before! Iceland has always been on my bucket list of places to travel to. Remember the friend that's celebrating her Bachelorette in New York? She's saying "I do" in Iceland! I am so happy for her and can't wait to celebrate her love with her future husband, as one of her maid of honors. Any recommendations highly appreciated. 

Trip 4: Switzerland. The last stop on my upcoming trips.... for now. This is one is going to be very interesting for me. I never really had Switzerland on my radar until my friend suggested that we go. I really don't know what to expect, what to do, or anything. I'll definitely have to do my research for this one. There's something so exciting about going somewhere you never really imagined you would. 

Now about this outfit. I am obsessed with this snakeskin belt bag by GG Maull! I actually planned this whole look around it. The hat is by Lack of Color and the jacket is by NAKD. Linking below.





Hey hey! Happy Sunday! I was supposed to go to an antique market today, but I decided to be a little more proactive and work on a few blog posts! This one is definitely overdue. I received so many questions about this Urban Outfitters dress! Linen and button ups are one of the hottest trends this season! When you shop online and in stores, you see them all over the place in stores such as Urban Outfitters, ASOS, Banana Republic, Mango, and the list goes on! I have linked my dress and several others below. Happy shopping!


Ahh, happy Saturday. There is nothing that I love more than spending the weekend at a museum. Weird, I know, but for some reason, I get inspired every time I go. I love a good art museum, and let me tell you J. Paul Getty had great taste! The Getty Museum is one of my favorite museums, 1. It's local, 2. The great artwork, 3. I love the architecture and 4. The views of LA are breathtaking. 

I decided to wear this VIP Shop set to the museum and it was perfect. Easy to move around in, not too warm, and it was thick enough to prevent me from getting cold from the breeze. You can shop it here. I am loving muted green tones for the Summer as well. Use code "Tandya1065" at us.vip.com to get $5 OFF of Orders Over $50!

Advice: When ordering from VIP Shop, I would suggest ordering a size up. If you do happen to need to make an exchange, the process is very quick! I ordered one size too small, and I received a replacement within a week. Great customer service!
 



One of the main questions I receive in my Instagram DM's is who does my hair and where I get it done. I have gotten my hair done by Valerie, from VC Hair Studio for almost 10 years now! She specializes in weaves and extensions and also offers services such as wash and style and curl/press. Her salon is located in LA, about 5-10 minutes from USC. You can check out her Instagram here.

I loved watching Valerie grow into the stylist that she is today. She has numerous celebrity clientele, has worked on several music videos/productions and now has her own salon. There's nothing better than seeing and supporting women with businesses. 

Next time you are looking to get extensions or a weave, I would definitely recommend VC Hair Studio


Hey hey! Happy Monday everyone! I am back from my mini vacation and I am feeling so refreshed and rejuvenated. I took a little trip to the desert over the weekend and I was so glad to feel the sun on my skin and finally get the chance to wear my new pieces from River Island! I have been a fan of River Island for a while now. My mom grew up in the UK and has shopped here her whole life. I am so glad that River Island is so easily accessible in the U.S. now! 

You can shop all of my looks below! P.S. River Island is having a Memorial Day Sale from now until the 28th! Use code 'MEMORIAL18' for 20% off of your entire order! 




Being the Cali girl that I am, I love anything that is both stylish and comfortable. Lou & Grey has been one of my go-to brands for a while now. I love that their clothes are airy, lightweight, transitional and perfect for layering.  I am usually the girl with the heater on in the Summer, so the fact that I can layer is a huge plus for me! 

The Garment Dye Collection is a current fav of mine. It is inspired by the endless LA sunshine and consists of soft, color-washed staples. From the I purchased the Softstretch Linen Pants and the Striped Garment Dye Tee, and paired it with a lightweight cargo jacket

Shopping at Lou & Grey is friendly and easy. They have a beautiful website, in-store pick up and multiple locations! I shop at the Manhattan Beach location all the time and I love the minimalism and open space. Click here to find your closest store!
