I made my first ever Lookbook video on Youtube and I’m so excited to share it with you guys! I’ve always just posted pictures of my outfits on blog posts and decided to take it a step further by creating videos. I feel like this is a great way to showcase the outfits better and kind of bring them to life. Personally, I love watching Lookbook videos so that I could see how the pieces are worn and move. It’s also a great way for you to take a peek into my life and what I do when I’m out and about in LA! 🙂

Kimonos have been all the rage lately and I’ve kind of always had this one in my closet that I’d throw on every once in a while if I want something light. The long line kimonos are trending right now but there are times when I want a shorter/regular cut. This one in particular is a silky soft finish in a light pink.
I threw it over my usual white t-shirt and jeans uniform and paired it with my light grey heeled mules. This is why I love wearing a simple t-shirt and jeans all the time, because when I throw on different accessories, it can completely change up the entire look of the outfit.
I spent the day just having brunch at Bread Lounge and then heading over to the American Tea Room in the Arts District for some yummy matcha tea! Nothing beats a relaxing Sunday morning out!
Everyone that knows me knows that I love teas! I’m not much of a coffee drinker but get me a refreshing tea or chai, and I’m all set! Runa Tea is a great refreshing option and I love the story behind their company. Runa teas and energy drinks are all natural, so they are naturally sweetened and caffeinated. They are made of guayusa leaves, which come from the Amazonian forest and tended to by Kichwa farmers, who are the indigenous people of the Amazon. The teas not only protect and preserve the Amazon rainforest, but also provide support for independent farmers. Guayusa leaves need the shade from the hardwood trees in the Amazonian rainforest, so in order for it to thrive, the Amazonian rainforest has to thrive as well.
It comes in a few different flavors and are very smooth with a subtle hint of sweetness, which is perfect for my palette. I don’t like overly sweet drinks, so this works out perfectly for me! My fiance tried out one of the energy drinks because he works night shifts sometimes and he was raving about it! He said it was really tasty and definitely gave him a boost of energy for work.

I’ve attended about 4 weddings already and have a couple more to go this year! Each wedding is different and it’s good to know what type of venue it’s going to be at, the terrain, etc so that you know what to wear. Here is an outfit I wore to a wedding that was located pretty much in a nature park (forest) and then the reception was at a restaurant. Because we were both outdoors and indoors, I made sure to dress appropriately for both. I got this dress from Missguided and paired it with ankle strap heels but the heels were thicker, making it easy for me walk around and DANCE!
I’ve come to love midi dresses because they look very put together and sophisticated. I like the way they fall on me and I don’t have to worry too much about the dress being too short.
Here are the goodies I picked up from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! The cardigan in the above picture from Topshop already sold out but I linked a comparable one in the widget below. There are still tons of great deals on Fall or basic pieces. I highly recommend checking it out and visiting my earlier post on some of the things I had my eyes on!
Maxi dresses are perfect for hot Summer days because it’s something you could just throw on and walk out the door! I love it because it’s like I’m wearing PJs or a mumu out and it’s perfectly fine! It can be difficult for petite girls like me, but like I’ve mentioned before, I actually just buy ‘midi’ dresses and they make perfect maxi dresses for me! I come in at a whopping 4’11” so I’m on the shorter end of the petite spectrum. You are considered petite if you are 5’3″ and under. For my height, I find that midi dresses generally fall right at my ankles, so they are maxi dresses for me! If you are a little taller than I am, it could run slightly higher for you. This is where you should know your measurements and pay attention to the length in the product description.
I particularly like this one because it has really cute pocket details and the color is this gorgeous dusty pink mauve. I’ll probably find some more ‘maxi’ dresses for myself to wear this summer, so below are some that I’m thinking of! 🙂
Hello everyone! I’m sure you’ve already heard about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale from everyone else in the world but just for those that are wondering what my picks are, I’ve put together a compilation of things that I have my eyes on. I already bought a few things to start off with and I know this is against everyone else’s tip of jumping on the products you like right away, but I’ve just saved some in my wishlist to think about for the next few days. I don’t have a ton left in my budget for the month to buy too much so I made sure to buy the few pieces I REALLY REALLY wanted. The rest are things that I think are great deals and although I might not be able to buy them, I’m going to suggest them to you!
I have a Nordstrom credit card so I was able to get Early Access, which is happening now until July 20. Public access begins on July 21. So if you have Early Access, you are able to jump in now and already shop, which I suggest you do! If not, they will still have great things during public access but you might not see some of the things below available anymore. Just a disclaimer! 🙂
Not that I was feeling blue or anything but I wore this cute chambray bomber jacket and stumbled on this blue wall, so it was perfect for a photo op! I wore my new Zara fringed shorts with a simple black body suit underneath. I have been wanting to try out some fringed bottoms or jeans of some sort but because of how small and petite I am, the fringes would just drag on the floor. Figured the best way was to just get shorts instead!
I love fringes and frays so I was really excited to stumble on these. My chambray bomber is also great to throw on if I want a light sweater or jacket. It’s not your traditional bomber, so it’s very breathable and lightweight.
White crochet is perfect for bright summer days. There’s something so relaxed, feminine, and whimsical about a perfectly crocheted top. I paired this cropped off shoulder one with an olive draped skirt and my pointed toe mules. It made for a great Summer outfit for an afternoon date with the fiance!
We spent the day having a great lunch at Sqirl, grabbing an iced latte at Carrera on Melrose (where we found this cool Lady Gaga inspired wall), and then running some errands. Apparently, they change this wall out every so often, so I’ll make sure to visit it once in a while to see what they come up with next!
If you’re at Carrera, you’re also across the ever so popular Paul Smith pink wall! Make sure to stop for a photo opt if it’s not too busy!
