Arrived in NY.  Wearing the black Palma Dress from Montazami Brand [HERE] and Henri Bendel carry on bag [HERE]

Hi guys 🙂  Talk about a gorgeous way to come into NYC!  We landed just as the sun was setting.  If these photos weren’t stunning enough, take a look at my latest instagram post (@hannamontazami) to see the most beautiful sunrise I experienced this morning.  It literally looks like a painting of the NY skyline.  I haven’t watched the sunrise in a long time, and today was definitely the day to do that.

We all just woke up so we’re gunna get ready, grab some coffee, and then hit the ground running!  It should be a little cooler today (88 degrees haha) so it shouldn’t be too bad.  Talk soon loves!

PACKING MY BAGS FOR…..

NEEEEWWWWWW YORKKKKKKKKKK!

I leave early tomorrow morning for yet another fun trip to NYC!  This time I’m going with Austin’s whole family to celebrate his brother’s 21st birthday, so it will be a fun party trip.  I remember my excitement when I turned 21… what a feeling.  But I hear it’s going to be hotter than a chili pepper over there so I’m doing my best to bring light and airy clothes.  I’ve never been to New York in the dead middle of summer, any tips on how to stay cool?  I’m bringing my anti-frizz hair spray in case you guys were wondering 😉

Talk soon!

I have to admit it’s a super cool feeling to wear clothes from your own clothing line.  I mean, it’s definitely not a normal thing that everyone gets to experience in their lifetime, and I’m happy that I’ve made that a reality for myself.  So much work goes into each piece from our line, so I almost look at them like finished projects once they go up on the website.  Speaking of the website, we just added our newest piece, the Palma Dress!  It comes in icy grey and black [shop it here].  I’m so proud of my mom, sister, Anna, our amazing customers, and everyone else who has helped support Montazami Brand 🙂

Today I wore the Ivy Jumpsuit with some white sneakers and the Moonlight Choker in graphite.  Sara and I spent the day working downtown and grabbed a fresh salad bar lunch and green juice at Whole Foods.

Hi alllll 🙂

We are getting ready to release some new styles up on the Montazami Brand website, so we had a photoshoot on Thursday with gorgeous model Rachel Brann and photographers Chris Sullivan and Kent Avery.  We shot both product shots and lookbook and they turned out amazing!  Just a couple more days until you guys can see 🙂

Sara and I also picked up some gorgeous material yesterday for future MB dresses, skirts and tops that we are so so sooo excited to design.  My mom is letting us experiment with a few designs totally on our own, so we have total freedom with it.  Usually there’s a lot of discussion and compromising when it comes to designing each Montazami Brand piece because Sara and I have a certain style and my mom’s differs a tiny bit from ours.  But that’s okay!  I’m happy we have three different minds contributing to Montazami Brand.  That’s what will keep our line fresh and unique, and it will help us fulfill our mantra of having something for EVERY woman to wear and love.  Things are looking bright ahead, and I’m eager to accomplish our goals.

MONTAZAMI BRAND CHOKERS: MORE COLORS AND NEW CHARMS!

HOW CUTE ARE THESE?!

I’m seriously obsessing over the Montazami Brand chokers!  I wear them literally every day.  I’m happy there’s enough colors to match any outfit I could possibly think of haha!  We just added the white and rose gold and the sea green and silver.  As you might’ve seen on my Snapchat, I wore the white and rose gold choker today with some cool ripped denim jeans and a tied black Montazami Brand Malibu tee [found here] We’ve also updated all of the charms on the other colors.  They now have pretty stones, silver arrows, rose gold wish bones, and gold spikes, to name a few.  And since black was so popular we wanted to add a black and gold choker, so everyone that normally wears gold can match it with their everyday jewelry.  I loooove it.  The original moonlight Choker in black and silver (with the palm tree, moon, and star charms) is still available on the website too 🙂

I think this might be one of my favorite bikinis at the moment!  I know I’ve already said this but the cut is perfect… not too revealing but still very cute.  I’m definitely going to get more bikini tops that are this shape!

As you can see, Sara and I had a little photoshoot today down at 10th street (also famously known as thousand steps beach) in Laguna. I remember those stairs being waaaay harder back in the day?  Now it’s a piece of cake!  After the beach we went home to our parents house for family dinner.  It’s sooo hard to get everyone together at the same time these days so it was really nice to see the table filled with all six of us.  My mom made some delicious dover sole fish tacos for Taco Tuesday 🙂

Hello my lovelies 🙂

Gosh it’s only 10:30 pm and it’s wayyyy past my bedtime.  Ever since I got back from Europe, Austin and I have been trying to keep our jet lag because we love waking up early!  We’ve been going to bed around 8 or 9 every night.  And let me tell you it is actually amazing haha.  I am way more creative and energized in the mornings so it’s a better way to maximize my day and get as much stuff done as I can.  When I go to bed early I wake up the next morning around 6:30 or 7 and check emails, blog, eat breakfast and workout all by 11 am!  That’s pretty good for my standards.

Anyways, I wanted to share some more pics I have from the beautiful blue-skied city of Paris!  Was it just my sunglass lenses or are the skies in Paris EXTRA blue?!  One of my favorite parts about Paris were all of the fountains and gardens that are sprinkled out throughout the city.  Austin and I sat at so many different fountains and just basked in the sun (and Austin would fall asleep at every one with his mouth wide open haha).

Now I’m off to get some sleep… goodnight babes!

SUMMER’S IN FULL EFFECT

It’s near the middle of July, and summer is at it’s peak.  Freckles are starting to show up on my cheeks, my skin is starting to get a tan, cinnamon color, and my hair is getting blonder.  But don’t let these pictures fool you, these were shot earlier this year!  Sara and I just received these photos from the Chiquelle Swimwear shoot we did in Malibu together.  It was so great to work with such an amazing photographer, Filip Shobot, and the sweet Chiquelle team.  I think the photos turned out really good!  So happy and colorful… it makes me wanna run down to the beach this very moment!

I would run down to the beach buttttt the Euro Cup final is on at 12 and there’s no way I’m missing that!  Who are you guys rooting for?  France or Portugal?!

Hiiiii guysssss 🙂

Happy Saturday!  Austin and I decided to stay in LA (we had planned to drive down to San Diego this weekend) because we just wanted to relax and be in the same city for more than two days haha.  It’s been really on-the-go lately so a weekend staying put in LA is just what we needed.  This morning we had brunch (I wouldn’t really call Kreation a ”brunch” spot, but half of the group got breakfast and the other half got lunch haha) with some of our Swedish friends who are in town.  They are a fascinating couple!  They like to have no plans and just explore the world.  So cool…. I wonder if I could ever do that… go to a foreign city and not know where you’re going the next day.  Could you guys do that?

After brunch we walked around a bit, I bought a super cute pink feathery top (that Austin hates haha) and then we picked up some iced matcha almond milk lattes.  Now we’re at Austin’s house and we’re about to get ready to go to Bungalow in Santa Monica to meet up with some friends and have a couple drinks.  Talk soon!
