Two Affordable Dresses

Two Affordable Dresses

It officially feels like summer! One of my favorite things about summer is definitely the ability to throw on a dress and just head out into the sunshine. While I’ve always been a believer in investing in high quality pieces of clothing, it is definitely not practical to never indulge in some fun fast fashion pieces like these two affordable, yet completely adorable dresses I’m featuring here. I’m not a big fan of Forever 21 and H&M, two of the most affordable and trendy brands out there, but one store that’s totally underrated (in my opinion) is Target! Every time…

A Desert Getaway at Holiday House

A Desert Getaway at Holiday House

I hate being in the heat, but love a good California desert getaway for some reason. On my first vacation on my job, I went to Palm Springs. During this long weekend, we spontaneously booked a night at Holiday House, a boutique hotel at the center of town, and it was such a great little break. We stayed in their smallest room type – “Good” – but it was still spacious with a comfy king sized bed. From clean white tiles to a mini Jeff Koons, the room has really tasteful and modern decor. Toiletries? No other than one of…

Dark Florals // Strathberry x Inthefrow

Dark Florals // Strathberry x Inthefrow

At 25, I think I’ve pretty much outgrown all my fangirl tendencies. No matter how much I love certain artists, I would not just blindly support their work if I don’t continuously find it genuinely inspiring to me. So when I saw that one of my all time favorite bloggers Inthefrow (Victoria) came out with her bags in collaboration with Strathberry, I didn’t decide to get one until I saw how gorgeous they were and more importantly, how well they represented her brand. I snatched myself a rose East/West Mini bag and finally received it last week! This is one…

My Spring Uniform // The Flower Fields

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 one of the most popular activities to do in San Diego – visit The Flower Fields in Carlsbad. Located about 30…

The Interview Outfit

The Interview Outfit

I’ve been planning on more content revolving around professional wear for a while now. Last summer I posted about two summer work looks, but those were everyday looks for an office with no strict dress code, whereas I really wanted to give ideas for what to wear to an interview. I had the idea that I would showcase a few looks that would apply to different professional environments, from traditional consulting firms to hip advertising agencies. However, I have realized that sometimes the more I plan for an idea, the longer it takes me to execute it. So I just…

5 Maui Outfits

5 Maui Outfits

I went to Maui for a week! It was one of the best trips I have ever been on. After trips I always find the task of writing blog posts a bit daunting because 1) there are usually so many photos to go through, 2) I want to the destination justice and 3) I need all the energy I have to get back into the full-time working life! The post trip blues were particularly real this time… So I’m going to leave most of the trip highlights for another post and focus on my outfits in this one. I find…
