Happy Friday Everyone! With summer nearly coming to an end this month, I thought it would be necessary to style one more summer outfit. Although, I may throw in a fun outfit that is not fall nor summer related before I transition into fall attire. You will just have to stay tuned. :) What better way than to wrap up summer with polka dots, stripes, and a Sunday Funday tee shirt alongside the pier? I wanted to end my summer blog post on a carefree and positive note. I recently heard Hilary Duff's new single "Chasing the Sun" and fell in love with with the carefree, positive, and infinite message it sent. I thought it was the perfect song to end the summer to. Oh and if you did not notice, I dyed my hair back to black. I am happy I tried out a new hair color because it taught me that hair is like makeup, it is an accessory and a finishing touch to an ensemble. It aids in creating and unifying a look.

On a more heart to heart level, this past month for me has been hectic and eventful. All I can say is that it reminded me why I am such a strong believer that "everything happens for a reason". I just really want to remind my fellow followers and readers that in life there is always going to be a lot of twists and turns and change is inevitable, but remember to always take a step back and look at the bigger picture. You will get a clearer view. Simply, sometimes you just have to let it go, move on and say C'est La Vie.

Have a great weekend and I will talk to you soon! :)

Happy Friday Everyone! If you live in Los Angeles, you already know about this past Sunday's weather. It was very humid and the gloominess made me in the mood for a minimalist outfit. I opted for a more cool and refreshing color palette and tied in everything with silver accents. Something about the french terry skirt, strapped sandals, and silver choker gave me a sporty sleek and chic vibe. What do you guys think? Thank you for reading and talk to you soon! :)

Happy Friday Everyone! Notice anything different? I have NEVER dyed my hair before and I decided it was time for a change. It is amusing to me how changing the style or color of your hair can almost change your identity. I never knew the power of coloring of your hair can affect the clothes or makeup you wear. Knowing that now, I have been experimenting with different colors to see what best suits the color of my hair. I found out mustard yellow was one of them. :) I have been eyeing this yellow jacket at Zara since the beginning, so happy it finally went on sale! I needed more pieces to brighten up my day so this definitely satisfies my craving.

Happy Friday Everyone! Since last year I did not do anything grand or special for my 21st birthday, I thought about how I could make turning 22 a little more memorable this year. After watching Taylor Swift's big hit "22" music video last year, it kind of got me little excited to turn 22 and it also gave me an idea to create my own 22nd birthday scene. Instead of filming a video, I opted to do a shoot! Aside from my love for styling, I also enjoy creating visuals and set design. So I went on to brainstorm a theme and actually draw out my own set. The theme I decided on for this shoot was...Alice in Wonderland/Mad Hatter Tea Party hence "TwoTwo Wonderland." This was a coincidence, but I would like to point out the hidden pun "twotwo" for wearing a tutu skirt. :) Thank you Pinterest for inspiring me to create and piece together ideas in my mind for this fantasy birthday shoot full of cupcakes, confetti, balloons, DIY flowers, streamers, and so much more. I wanted to capture the innocence and sweetness of Alice, so I kept the color palette soft and light with a pale pink top, mint tulle skirt and nude heels. For some sparkle and elegance, I replaced Alice's black bow headband with a silver jeweled headband. The moment my friend showed me the tulle skirt and told me to get it, I was completely sold by the color and length. I thought it was absolutely perfect. I figured there are not many places a person can wear a tulle skirt, so why not pull it out for a fun birthday shoot? :) I hope you take away some inspiration and enjoyed the pictures as much as I had fun taking them! I guess I can finally say I am feeling 22 ooo ooo. :) Take care and thank you for reading!

Happy July 4th Everyone! To be honest, the top outfit post I look forward to every year is the July 4th post. I just feel like you really cannot go wrong with a red, white and blue ensemble. It is simple and timeless. I hope this patriotic wardrobe gets you excited for the 3 day weekend and inspires you to pair your own outfit with the nation's colors. I will be spending this July 4th with my family eating lots of delicious food and watching the annual fireworks. How are you spending your July 4th weekend?
