Casual and Carefree

This is what I consider an artist's jacket. It has a really artsy feel to it and somehow I can imagine an artist wearing it and getting paint all over it. Haha... On the other hand if you are not an artist, it has a nice boho feel that makes any look more casual and carefree.

The weather has been up and down, but right now it is sunny and warm. At least until this weekend when I hear it will rain! Boo!!! How is the weather where you guys are? Do you think it has an effect on whether you go out to take pictures? :)

Blacks and Grays

Well guys, I'm sorry for another long gap between posts - this time I got extremely sick... I think it was the flu. I could barely get out of bed much less shoot an outfit! But this was the last look I shot just as I felt the bug coming on. (Which is why I forgot to put on jewelry - shame!) Luckily I am finally feeling better, about 89% better to be honest and it's great!!!!

This dress is really comfy, stretchy, casual and modest. It was a bit cold so I covered up with a coat after shooting but I wanted to make sure you could see the dress. I didn't even mean to have my hand up in every photo nor did I realize how well my look would match the building. When shooting it's always kind of a challenge to find a spot that your outfit goes well with... or am I the only one that does that :P

La-La-Lace

This is one of my favorite date night staple looks! Just grab a pretty lace dress with an open back, black heels and a black purse - and you're good to go! I am impressed with this dress from Charlotte Russe, it has a much more expensive look to it and it is made well. The front is made for a larger chest than mine though so I did try to fill it out a bit more with padding.

It's a bit funny as this is my first look I've shot since I got back from Thailand and you can see I have a bit of a tan. In January! Pretty unusual for me...

Faux Shearling

This coat is most definitely a knock-off from Acne. I think the coat is super cute but once again not that warm and probably a lot less dense than the Acne version.

It's really hard coming back to such cold weather, even though I was only gone for 10 days it is just something I think I adapt to so fast! Though I can never seem to adapt to cold weather! The event I hosted for Bluemercury was super fun by the way! I always appreciate everyone that makes it out, especially on a weekday when I know people have school and work! xoxo

In the Navy

I'm sorry it has been over a week since my last post! We shot some proper California winter looks before I went to Thailand. This look was actually on an SD card that I left at a hotel in Bangkok! I totally freaked out when I realized what had happened and it took about 9 days for the hotel to send it back to me. So I could finally do an outfit post for you guys!

This long blue coat is perfect for a cloudy day and kept me decently warm. I've noticed most Shein coats are meant more for looks than practicality. (I wouldn't wear this coat on a rainy day!) And I also think pairing your shoe color with your coat can be pretty chic if done right. What do you guys think? Would you wear this look?

Trocadero










HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! I decided to start the new year with my LAST Paris look! This is one of my favorite shoots ever so apologies for the mass photos (okay there are just a few more than normal). I actually have a funny story to go with this post... my sister and I wanted to meet up with Olivier Wong, a Paris photographer, so we set up a day/time. On the supposed day I got up at 6 am but it was pouring rain. I got ready (exhausted) and we got an Uber to the location. It was till pouring rain! Then my sister texted him to say hey we're running late and he said oh but it's tomorrow! OMG! Just ridiculous. So we went to the Louvre instead and bought cheap umbrellas that promptly broke!

Well anyways the next day we tried again, but the sky was clear! The sunrise was gorgeous! It wasn't even as cold as the previous days so shooting in this (gorgeous) dress wasn't as bad as I had expected :)

I'm not much into New Years Resolutions by the way, I'm more into the never-ending self improvement journey! I think it's important to have the willpower to just start on improving yourself whenever the realization hits you! But in case you are wondering, some of the things I am working on changing/improving are 1) going to sleep earlier so I can get up earlier! 2) Spend more time with my mom! 3) Go to the gym every other day and create a gym routine for travel situations, 4) Clean more! 5) Eat healthier and finally 6) Exfoliate every day!

XOXO
