My Spring Uniform // The Flower Fields

  If you’ve read more than a few posts here, you’d know that I adore San Diego. It’s where I went to college and lived for four years. Even though a day trip is more than doable, the two-hour drive plus LA’s unpredictable traffic even on weekends has kept me from visiting as often as I can. After about four months since my last visit, I finally took a drive a couple Sundays ago to visit my friend. We did…

Sunday Thoughts #3 // LA Arboretum

It’s not quite Sunday but it’s been a little quieter here on my blog than I’d like, so I’m sharing some thoughts/updates! The photos are from our recent visit to Los Angeles County Arboretum and Botanical Garden, located in Arcadia. It’s known for its free roaming peacocks. I had visited previously in high school, but that was before I lived in the middle of the chaos that is LA city, so I didn’t appreciate how peaceful and well-maintained the arboretum…

My LA Winter Uniform

Despite all the sales, I haven’t been buying a lot of new clothing pieces lately, which usually automatically warrants a new outfit blog post. However, there has been one outfit that I’ve been wanting to share – this classic, simplistic “winter” outfit that’s effortless to throw on and looks polished. It composes of: a neutral sweater or top, relaxed jeans, black booties, and a trench coat (same one as featured in this post). I’ve worn this outfit quite a few…

Three Sundays

December does not bring snow here in California but it doesn’t diminish the holiday spirits. I’ve been a little behind on my blog this month because I’ve been spending extra time with friends whenever I could. I love that even though everyone’s busy, the holiday season brightens everyone’s moods and making plans becomes easier than ever. On each of the three Sundays of this month so far, I spent all day with friends exploring both SD and LA. I took…

Pinafore Dress at Getty Center

Last time I was at the Getty Center, the entire sky was black and orange. A huge fire in the mountains had transformed West LA into a scene from an post-apocalypse movie. This time around our experience couldn’t have been more different. We got there a little after 3, so parking was discounted from $15 to $10. There weren’t nearly as many people so parking also took almost no time either. The sky was beyond clear, the air was fresh,…

Casual Outfit in Orange, CA

  Last Saturday I spent a few very relaxing hours in Orange – an older town in California a little more than half an hour away from LA. Despite of the proximity, it has a small town atmosphere that makes you feel like you’re much further away. I love that feeling. We first stopped by Portola Coffee Lab, located inside of Provision Market, a combination of a beer/wine tasting room, an exotic beer market, and of course the coffee shop…

His and Her Outfits – Styling Each Other

Recently I was inspired by YouTube’s “boyfriend buys my outfits” videos, but instead of just having my boyfriend buy me something, I thought it would be more interesting if I also picked out an outfit for him as well. I’ve always thought he has a great sense of fashion. He would point out pieces that he thinks would look good on me, but they are often quite unique and different than my usual style; so I was intrigued to see…

On Day in LA – 5 Things I Did Alone

If you’ve read my blog before (especially this post and this post), or know me in real life, of course, then you’d know I love spending some alone time. However, that’s not to say that I’m completely at ease with it. Even though I know I enjoy it, it still feels daunting sometimes and the temptation to just bum it at home can be strong. It’s kind of like exercising, you just have to get yourself to do it because…
