LA Diaries #1

LA Diaries #1

I have never loved living in LA like I do right now. I moved into my own apartment about four months ago and it has become my very own little corner in the city. I don’t know how many years I will be living in this great city of dreams and reality, so I’m making the best of it. I’ve been going through some changes lately, but through my efforts, the positive has way outweighed the negative. I’m doing everything with more purpose and drive. This includes things I already loved, and perhaps more importantly, things that I always wanted…

Fall Blues

Fall Blues

It’s been a while! Recently I have been going through some life changes and adapting to them is taking all the energy that I have. I’ve been trying to do more and think less. I’m learning that instead of doing things when I feel like them, I should just go ahead and start doing things that I know to be good for me. One of these tasks is of course blogging. The creation of every single blog post on here has brought me joy. So I put on a new navy blue blouse that I got from a Free People sale,…

Chicago Diaries

Chicago Diaries

Last week, I visited Windy City for the first time for five days to attend the Laver Cup, an exciting new tennis tournament (yes I love tennis but no I do not play). It was a unique, thrilling, and time consuming experience, but I managed to find time to hit up some other spots around the city.   Millennium Park Staying right in the heart of downtown allowed me to reach the park in less than ten minutes by foot. As my red-eye flight was scheduled to arrive at 5 am, I had the brilliant idea of visiting Millennium Park…

Timeless Polka Dots

Timeless Polka Dots

There is no doubt that polka dots is one of the trends that has stood the test of time, and it’s definitely not going out of style any time soon. I can prove its timelessness because in this post, I’m sharing two polka dot dresses that I purchased ten years apart. Yep you read that right! The first one is a Betsy Johnson dress that my family got me in a vintage shop when we traveled to Japan in the summer of 2008. I adored it, but always thought that I needed a special occasion to dust it off. So…

When Time Stands Still // LDR Thoughts

When Time Stands Still // LDR Thoughts

I’m not good at breaking rules, even ones that are self imposed. When I started a full time job back in 2016, I set a goal for myself that no matter what, I was going to write at least three blog posts a month. I don’t think anyone else in the world cared if I accomplished this very arbitrary goal, but come the last day of the month, there was a good chance you’d find me rushing to finish up a post before the clock struck midnight. I’m proud that I’ve hit that goal every single month since I created…

Outfits (& Musings) of the Week

Outfits (& Musings) of the Week

Last week I took on the “ambitious” project of taking and outfit of the day every day. Even though outfits are not the most consequential subject in the grand scheme of things, committing to doing anything can be difficult, so I’m proud of myself for actually going through with it. Here are my outfits and a little snippet of each of my day:  Monday – Coral Floral I’ve featured this exact outfit before in this post and I still adore it (shop the shoes here)! Mondays are gloomy so I wanted to tackle it with some color that hopefully brightened…
