I really appreciate the super lovely weather. It looks like it's already summer, which I love so much! As the temperature gets higher, I get to enjoy wearing more dresses because; 1) it's super comfy and 2) effortless to add a feminine touch. This blue striped casual dress is definitely a fun piece, but I thought it would be cuter if I spiced it up a little bit. So I paired it with a chambray shirt as a jacket, a boater hat for a spring/summer vibe. This hat has been my go-to hat every spring and summer. I still love wearing fedoras and floppy hats, but boater hats seem more like seasonally appropriate pieces that you can easily create a summer-perfect look with. I decided to go for black platform sandals so that the stripe print pops more.

Speaking of the location where I shot this look... I came to Discovery Park and it's absolutely one of my favorite places in Seattle. It's breathtakingly beautiful and there is lots of green. The air is so refreshing which relaxes me so much!! I was there for about an hour, but you have no idea how much I felt revived! I wanna come back again for a weekend picnic or just enjoy the view, forgetting all about social media! :P

Happy Friday dolls!

I am so sad that the summr is getting close to the end. I still have tons of summer activities in mind that I haven't done yet... I am seriously not ready for the summer to be over! Hopefully I will be able to spend some quality time at Alki Beach soon, one of my favorite spots in Seattle!

It's all about the combination of my favorite pieces today! I got this lovely gingham print skirt from ASOS in early June, and I love waring it as a dress more than as-is. If you remember, I rocked a look as a dress a while ago, and this is another way I styled it up as a dress. If you are a petite, like me, it can be hard to find the perfect comfy dress. This one can totally solve that problem! This is the only gingham printed piece that I have in my closet, and I am very pleased how the print makes me feel extra girly and chic. It even adds some playful, but retro elegance touch. How can you not love a piece that keeps you cool from the remaining summer heat while looking super stylish?
I've been so in love with this straw boater hat ever since I snagged at H&M it awhile back. I think as much as I love a baseball cap, this hat is my top favorite summer hat for sure. Oh and it's very practical!! The mix of this ht and the dress is just so lovely.
You have no idea how many times I've worn these awesome studded white sandals over the past few months. I got them from ALDO last year and didn't have a chance to wear as many times as I wanted. I am a complete sucker for shoes that have WOW elements and details, and these gold studs definitely make the sandals a statement. With the bloke heels, there is no worrying about stability walking around, and even running to catch a bus! What a dream pair!
This time I decided to pair a black patent belt to match with the black ribbon on the hat, then finish the look with the light blue mini cross-body bag (to compliment the same hue of the dress) with some gold jewelry. Nothing is incorporated for fall inspirations, but this look really overjoyed me and gives a little bit of end-of-summer fun!

Wishing you cuties a very beautiful day!
