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…

Fall Look in Cambridge, MA

A main reason I wanted to visit Boston was because I wanted to experience fall in New England, so naturally I wanted to have the perfect fall outfit for it. Leading up to the trip, I purchased a plaid wrap skirt, a basic white tee (from the men’s section), and a charcoal trench coat from Theory to assemble the perfect fall look. I originally wanted to go for a plaid blazer or coat as they are everywhere at the moment.…

Apple Picking in Massachusetts

I haven’t spent much time in New England before, so for a fall weekend getaway, I got my boyfriend and myself tickets to visit Boston for the first time. On our first day here we managed to walk almost 12 miles, covering much of Boston as well as Cambridge, so on the second day we decided to venture out of city to experience real fall along the country roads of Massachusetts. About 15 miles east of Cambridge is Walden Pond…

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…

Sunday Thoughts #1

As you can see, I’ve revamped this blog lately just as I did last year around the first anniversary of my blog. It’s always on its way to look more professional and put together, which I love, but I’ve also been having a bit of an identity crisis regarding the blog. I’ve never wanted to make it a business because I think that could well ruin the fun. I have a full time job that I very much enjoy, so…

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…

Don’t be a Bummer, Babe

Even though summer seemed to have lasted way longer than a season should (from Memorial Day until a few days ago), it still passed by in the blink of an eye. As much as I’m spoiled by Californian weather, I can’t help but get a little sad as sunsets are getting earlier, shortening the windows of opportunity to visit the beach. So here’s a bit of a random goodbye post to summer 2017, filled with some rambles and photos of…
