Grey Off Shoulder Blouse For a Sick Day



I have recently got over a pretty stubborn cold and I remember feeling horrible the day I took these outfit pictures, but I kept my composure and got in some decent shots! I rarely get sick and the last time I was this sick was almost 3 years ago! I guess it was about time anyways, right?

Well, the boyfriend took me out to grab a delicious bowl of ramen to make me feel better. It was warm that day so wrapping myself up in a sweater and scarf just didn’t make any sense, so I made sure to throw on a cute outfit and try to beat this nasty cold! I wore this cute off shoulder grey blouse with a layered detail with a pair of some of my favorite ripped jeans and sandals. Take that, Cold! 🙂

Home Finds: Mid Century Modern


I blame it on Mad Men for the huge explosion of love for Mid Century Modern decor and furniture. The sleek and clean lines with a tinge of cool, retro accents make this style a really sought for look. I myself love certain aspects of it and I can understand the fad. I really have no idea how to define ‘Mid Century Modern’ but when searching for the definition, this was what I was able to find:

It broadly describes architecture, furniture, and graphic design from the middle of the 20th century(roughly 1933 to 1965, though some would argue the period is specifically limited to 1947 to 1957). The timeframe is a modifier for the larger modernist movement, which has roots in the Industrial Revolution at the end of the 19th century and also in the post-World War I period. 

Either way, here are a few inspirational pictures below and some of my picks for pieces to add this style to your home!

Style Spotlight: Fall Must-Haves


The weather in LA has been playing with my emotions. One day, it’s brisk and chilly and then the next day, it’s 90 degrees! I pulled out my scarf bin and was ready to wear a scarf every day but my excitement was short lived. Either way, I’ve been eyeing a few things to add to my fall wardrobe from new booties, to cozy blanket scarves, to amazing jackets! Check out some of my picks below!

All You Need Is Love



I love finding cool murals and backdrops around the city but I particularly ‘love’ this one because of the simplicity of it, yet it conveys such a profound message. With everything that’s going on in the world and violence that occurs each and everyday, a little bit of love can go a long way.

I was feeling particularly sick that day but I made myself get out of the house to grab some soup for lunch and make a pit stop at this beautiful wall. It definitely brightened my day up a bit with all of it’s bold colors.

Oversized Striped Blouse



Most of the time, things are generally oversized on me just like this striped blouse from Romwe. I don’t often have the time to go to the tailor so I make sure to check the dimensions of the items before I purchase anything but there are times when I get it wrong. I discovered that an alternative way to wear blouses like these without having to tailor it is to just wear it as a coverup or ‘cardigan’. It makes a perfect piece to throw over your outfit! I particularly like this piece because of the panels of thin black stripes and the crispness of the fabric. I’ll probably also wear it as a shirt dress too!

What do you guys think?!

*Thanks Romwe for this amazing piece! I already know that I’m going to be wearing this a lot! 🙂

Off the Grid



I don’t really wear a lot of prints so I generally stick to very simple prints that don’t overwhelm me. Sometimes when I wear large and bold prints, it tends to drown me and make me look even smaller than I already am. If you’re petite like me, try to keep the print small and minimal. I love this button up top with a very sleek grid print. It’s also super comfy and light so when I’m running around town doing errands on a hot day, this is something I automatically gravitate towards.

Style Spotlight: Sweater Weather


It’s the first day of Autumn and even though the weather doesn’t exactly permit it in LA yet, I’m completely ready to transition to a fall wardrobe! Fall for me means tons and tons of comfy knitted sweaters and cardigans. I love being able to easily throw on a soft oversized sweater over a pair of jeans and call it a day! They don’t call it sweater weather for nothing! Check out some of my picks below!

Shiny Black Shoes



I’m so excited that fall is just around the corner! I can already smell the pumpkin spice lattes in the air! Actually, I’ve already had two in the last week or so… You can’t blame a girl! Anyways, what I’m most excited about is being able to transition to my fall wardrobe. There’s nothing like wearing comfy sweaters, scarves, and boots everyday. Makes me feel super cozy and relaxed. When we got a taste of fall the other day, I wore a lightweight trench coat, boyfriend jeans, and my new shiny black patent mules! I’ve been trying to figure out how to wear these shoes and I figured they looked best on me with a relaxed pair of jeans because of the contrast.

Foodie Friday


CINESPIA in Los Angeles, CA

This was my first time attending Cinespia and I loved it! I usually like outdoor movies anyway but watching it at a cemetery really adds something to it! Cinespia is an outdoor movie event that happens every weekend during the Summer at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery. The first time I heard about this was from the movie, ‘Valentine’s Day’ but my coworker goes several times each Summer so she’s an expert on it! Another coworker and I attended with her and her friends to watch ’16 Candles’ last Saturday evening and we got the scoop on exactly what to do! She said to bring low beach chairs (you are not allowed to bring camping chairs), some food and wine, and blankets- also arrive early because you’ll have to wait in line to enter the cemetery.

When we were able to enter, we walked through the cemetery and made our way to the mausoleum where they project the movie against a huge wall and we sit on a large grass area. They also set up a themed set where you can take professional pictures in and they post it up on their website. I really enjoyed sitting outside (in a cemetery) and watching a fun movie. It’s very LA. 🙂

Below is our spread for the evening! My coworker has a small collapsable table that she always brings and we had cure meats, cheeses, pesto, bread, donuts, wine, grapes, and tons of more food! Definitely an impressive spread, right?!




CBS SEAFOOD AND DIMSUM at Chinatown, Los Angeles

I went with my parents on Sunday morning to grab some dimsum. I am always up for dumplings and tea, so this was perfect for Sunday brunch! We usually come here and order tons of steamed foods with tea. This was only the first few things we got before I scarfed down on all the food and they were not picture worthy anymore.


GARDEN CAFE in Alhambra, Los Angeles

Sometimes, I really just want something hearty and cheesy. I know this may sound weird, but I usually crave this dish that is a baked sole fillet in mushroom cream sauce and cheese. People usually don’t combine fish with cheese but this is to die for! It’s one of my favorite things. It’s pretty heavy, but you can always have it the next day. It’s still just as good! Garden Cafe is a typical Asian cafe with a variety of Chinese and Taiwanese foods. It’s one of those spots that you can come late at night for some good hearty and greasy food.


Light Blue Off Shoulder Dress


I felt like a glamorous 70s movie star in this dress because of the beautiful soft blue color, pleats, and the off shoulders. I’m following the crowd when I say that I’m currently obsessed with off the shoulder items right now. It’s just so feminine and beautifully shows off your neckline in such an elegant way. I love the details of this dress from the ‘scalloped’ edges, pleats, and tiers. There’s also something so retro about it which makes it even more irresistible!
