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…

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…

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…
