Fall Fever

Finally, it's sweater (vest) weather! 

I just had the best fall break! I didn't do a whole lot, but that sometimes is the best type of break. I slept in every morning, I ate healthier (cause you know college food), went shopping, saw Keeping Up With The Joneses (surprisingly very funny!), and of course spent a great quality time with my family and friends from my hometown. I was exhausted from midterm exams and doing homework all the time, so a four day break was very necessary. And plus, it gave me more time to write this blog post! 

When my mom and I went shopping, I bought a few new clothes and I am eager to share them, I think they are just perfect for fall. And of course, what's a fall fashion photoshoot without pumpkins and everything fall-related?!

The first part of my outfit I want to share are my new pair of light blue ripped mom jeans from Anthropologie. They're perfectly slim and high-waisted, and they are so comfy! At first, when I tried them on, I thought they are a bit tight, but aren't all jeans like that at first? After a while, they became more easy to put on and now I can last throughout the entire day without feeling one bit uncomfortable. I also finally have a pair of jeans that are more ripped, so that makes me very happy! 

Everything at Anthropologie is twenty percent off at the moment, so it's best to buy these jeans as soon as possible! 

My shoes, actually technically my mom's shoes, are designed by Børn and can be bought from Nordstrom. They are so comfy and chic, I'm going to have a can a pair for myself that I can wear all the time. Mom jeans and shoes worn by my mom, it's definitely obvious where I get my fashion sense from.

Of course, I have to prepare for the chilly weather with a black long sleeve shirt from Target (designed by Merona), a black choker necklace from Francesca's, Ray Bay half frames from Sunglass Hut, and my new favorite gray sweater vest from Apple Tree. The vest is probably one of my new favorite fashion pieces for fall. I love how long it is and the soft material it has. It looks great with shirts, pants and dresses. Plus, it has pockets! 

Fall is a beautiful and pleasant time of the year that must be cherished every second as the leaves continue to fall and pumpkins continue to grow. When you have the chance, go on a beautiful fall hike or go to a farm and pick some of the best pumpkins to carve or eat. Also, find that one outfit, whether dressy or comfy, that makes you feel confident, lovely, and expresses the beauty of fall and what it means to you.

Make sure to bundle up though, it's getting cold out there!

California Girl

The more I see or hear the word "California", the more I wish I was back in paradise. My mom and I are already talking about what we want to do the next time we visit the Golden State (hint: Disneyland is in the top ranks!) I am very thankful to have had the opportunity to visit one of my favorite places for our summer vacation, and I am already looking forward to the next adventure.

California is known to have over 87,000 jobs in the fashion industry, even surpassing New York's fashion district workforce. Los Angeles is one of the biggest cities that has inspired "California-cool" fashion trends throughout the world. When packing for the trip, my first thoughts were what outfits would be perfect to share on the blog. So here are two of my best outfits from the trip!

California Dreamin' 

Mid-length maxi dresses and the beachy atmosphere make a perfect combo. California is the perfect place to wear a maxi dress all year round. Luckily I bought this flounce lace dress from Anthropologie at the beginning of June, just in time for the trip. I love the elegance of this dress, it almost looks more cocktail-like but still great for casual occasions. It has a confident statement for the girl in the outfit and leaves onlookers in wonder. It's also perfect for both summer and winter, you can easily get a lot of use out of it.

Since the outfit is a simple black, you can go all out with accessories. I picked my feather-like chandelier earrings from Francesca's, Alex and Ani bracelets, Lokai bracelets, and a turquoise stretch bead bracelet (similar to a Lokai).

Finally, what is a sunny vacation without sandals?! Here is a pair of my two-year old jeweled snake sandals from Dillard's. Thankfully I had nail polish to match the jewels and cover up my toe nails!

The best part, palm trees make a perfect background!

Sun's Out, Shorts Out

I don't really like adding too much detail to my fashion blogs, so I'll try to keep this one as "short" as possible.

Shorts, tanks, and flip flops are an obvious must for an eighty-degree adventure. These white sailor shorts and black pocket shell tank top, both from the LOFT, together form a sophisticated summer gal look. Add some accessories including Ray Ban half-frames, a bar necklace, watch, bracelets, an Italian handbag, and easy-to-walk-in flip flops and you'll be fashionably ready to explore!
