Sweet Neutrals :: Cameral High Waist Skirt & White Booties

No matter the season, neutral tones are always one of the top color trends that everyone gravitates towards. It creates the perfect fall vibe of snug, toasty, warm - all sorts of autumn feelings. The camel hue especially, and instantly, adds luxe and a well-made feel to any piece. No wonder this color is such a timeless color

Fall Uniform: Turtle Neck & Trench Vest

When you feel that your outfit needs a little “spice-up” but a coat is a bit too warm, trench vests are one of the perfect transitional pieces to elevate your basic outfit. Not to mention, a trench vest is such a perfect chemistry with turtlenecks!

Hi LOVEs! Happy Friday!!!

As I describe that my style is versatile, alternative, and unique, it's always so fun for me to work with a brand that I might not go find on my own. I prefer to put heels on wherever I go, however, what if I have an awesome pair of suede boots in my closet? I can stroll around from towns to towns in them because I bet my feet won't kill me!!

I am so pleased to get my hands on

these new boots

from

Cat Foot Wear,

and they are getting ready to launch their new AW15 collection, and this seasons line is all about performance details, with a full range of suede waterproof boots (

that don’t look like waterproof boots!

), along with other wool, faux fur, and thinsulate styles. And, this same theme carried into the men’s collection as well with a full range of wool and waterproof boots, including a collaboration with Gore-Tex which updates the brand’s iconic 

Colorado

 silhouette in 6 insulated, waterproof colorways.

It was quite hard for me to pick which of their new boots I wanted to style in because there are lots of fun and awesome boots from the new AW collection! These come in leather and suede, and I chose the latter on the spot! Because I am so into the texture right now, I think everyone is, in this season, and I picked dark grey color out of two other colors - black & cafe - since you guys know by now that I love anything in the grey shade!

To style

my boots

, I paired with a

blush fuzzy knit

and

cutoffs

for a super laid-back attire. Whenever I go for casual looks, I try to focus on how I can balance the whole look since I am a very short girl! So accessorizing is the key, and wearing a hat definitely helps to direct the eyes upward! I first opted for a beanie but switched to a

camel wide brimmed hat

because I wanted to add a feminine touch to the look. And side braids gives an extra cuteness along with the hat! I had so much fun shooting these boots at Seattle waterfront, one of my favorite spots for sure!

Hope you like my casual look today! :)

Have a lovely weekend ya'll!

Hi LOVEs!

I normally try to avoid re-using wardrobe pieces because I would rather have my looks have variety. However, once I find something that completely steals my heart that is not an option. It WILL be on heavy rotation for sure.  I think you remember that I shared a

different look with this top

two weeks ago, but here is another look that has more of a feminine vibe. This was also one of the attires I chose  for my Oregon trip. I wore it again because I really wanted to shoot it!

This time, I styled it with super light

floral shorts

and topped it off with a

camel fedora

and

platforms

to match.

Off-the-shoulder tops

are so addicting, plus they are a hot piece right now. I seriously want to wear it every single day. It definitely gives a summery look and is effortlessly chic while being a perfect top to beat the heat. Summer has officially begun and this heat wave in Seattle is insane! Now is a perfect time to grab a few more off-the-shoulder pieces, from tops to dresses, any recommendations?

I am starting my long July 4th weekend now! Have a lot of fun and be safe!!

Hi LOVEs!

I have no idea where to start, but I am feeling freaking amazing to fully recover from

the incident

and settle in to a new place!! My room wasn't furnished so I went to furniture shopping at IKEA last Friday and got my hands on a lot of stuff.  A bunch of lights (because my room is in the basement), candles, clocks, storage goodies, and.... BED! When I first moved in here, I was bedless. I had no choice to sleep on the floor without a mattress - just a few blankets in place of it. It was kinda of nightmare, and I actually had super weird dreams a few nights in a row! So I am totally excited to sleep in my cute, white fluffy bed now!! Ever since my childhood, I've always dreamed of having a canopy because why not? It's adorable and makes a bed much cuter! And guess what? That dream came true!!! My landlord is so nice that I can decorate however I want to. My new roommate just painted his wall from white to orange. I can't wait to DIY my new house! Hopefully I will have a chance to peek my new room/house for you guys soon!

When I found this awesome jumpsuit at

Forever 21

online, I once neglected to buy it because I didn't know how good it would look on me. Then, a few days later, when I went to their store with my friend, I found it and she pushed me to try it on. Immediately, I fell in love with it!!! Although I had to tailor the hems, this jumpsuit is perfect to me! I have a long torso and short legs, which always make me hard to find a flattering jumpsuit. So actually this is my first time owning it! I definitely love the 70's inspired print with a blue color accent. I am generally not very comfortable wearing a piece that widely opens around my chest due to small breasts. But this jumpsuit solves the problem and gives me an even better look.

I decided to layer it with an oversized cardigan and my all-time favorite

camel hat

. I tend to glam up by wearing stacking bracelets as the weather gets warmer and the skin is shown. It's fun to mix and match with what you have already and new accessories. Plus, the outfit never looks so plain. I've been in love with my new

"Jewel Box" Y-neckalce from

Rebecca Minkoff

. It's not a bold statement piece, but it's definitely something you can wear on daily basis from day to night.

What's your favorite spring/summer piece lately?

Happy Tuesday

Hi LOVEs!!!!

The weather in Seattle lately has been super unpredictable, and to be honest with you, it's driving me insane. It's sunny one day, and next day it completely changes to a gloomy, chilly, unhappy weather. The worst part is.... it greatly affects my emotions! Ugh! I can't wait for summer! But outfit wise, I am really pleased with the cool temperature only because I can take advantage of it to still wear my favorite coats!

This

camel oversized coat

has been a big hit ever since I've owned in my closet, and needless to say, I've worn it a countess time already. And I wanted to create something spring-inspired. Whenever I wear an outerwear, especially a little thick one, I always tend to tuck up the sleeves to show some skin. This one easy trick instantly transforms any winter-ish coat to an appropriate spring one. Even a black bicker jacket as well. Today's look was created around this awesome coat with a double denim ensemble along with a

camel hat

which is my major hat obsession right now.

Since the festivity mood is floating everywhere, I was inspired to wear festival-ready accessories to finish the look. A peacock earrings, a beaded necklace, and of course a

fringed bag

. They are definitely spice up the look!

I love my new sunnies from

Polette

and new chic pointy heels from

Cherry Footwear

. They are perfect to complement the look! Never go wrong with a black pair of heels! If you are looking for a fun, affordable shoe online store,

Cherry Footwear

is such a good place to shop at! And I have something special to my readers! Use the code "

Have a lovely day, dolls!

Hi LOVEs!!!

It's so gloomy and chilly today in Seattle. How's the weather where you are?

If it is as bad as my city, I hope today's post will brighten up your day because there are a lot of sweet & twirling moments! :)

Another day with my beloved

camel hat

outfit! Just like today's temperature, I still needed to cozy up in a sweater or layers, so I chose this super lovely bell sleeve cropped pullover to create a "spring natural" ensemble along with the hat. I am so glad I styled them with a flowy maxi skirt because it really complements the look, and it gives the look a nice feminine element.  I actually haven't worn this maxi skirt for a very long time because to be quite honest with you, I didn't know how to style it due to the length - I felt it's too long for my height. But it turned out really flattering! I love it when I can give life back to whatever piece has been hiding in my closet unworn. Since this skirt is extremely light and flowy, it could be fun to wear it again for other spring looks! Maybe with an off shoulder top or floral print tops! The options will go on and on!

Even though my boots are hidden by the skirt, these pink ankle boots added a spring hue. Wearing anything with pastel is such a great color selection add fresh vibe to the look.

As for hairstyle, I have a major obsession with this camel hat and side braid. It's super easy yet effortlessly chic and cute. Such a lovely go-to hair style right now!

    How would you wear naturals in spring? ♥

Hi LOVEs!!!!

Are you as happy as I am to finally feel the spring weather and to get to see all the oh-so-cute flowers blooming everywhere? Whenever spring has sprung, it always reminds me of my home: Tokyo, Japan. As you probably know, you can see wonderful cherry blossoms in Japan wherever you go during this season, and we have a fun outdoor party called

Hanami

to celebrate or enjoy the transient beauty of flowers with family, friends, or colleagues while we enjoy delicious food and drinks together. Sounds really enjoyable, doesn't it? Oh I miss THAT so much!

I was happy that yesterday was warm enough to bare some skin (Yes! Finally!) so I wore a bright red dress and a pastel pink sweater on top of it for a fashion/blogger event last night. I posted the look on my

Instagram

if you are curious to see it! 

Although the temperature is warming now, on some days the winter chill remains. Today's look is for one of those days and is inspired by the spring vibe. I put on a flowery printed pink top and paired it with some skinny jeans. Instead of wearing boots, I decided to go for multi-colored sandals. I know it was too cold to wear them barefooted, so I layered with

black sheer tights

, and it worked! I have been looking for a perfect camel hat that can be wearable for all seasons, and look what I've scored recently from

ASOS

!!!

 When in doubt, go find at

ASOS

! I adore its big wide brim. Plus, it definitely goes with any look and gives a nice touch of chicness. Color-wise, camel is better than dark ones like black and gray to give your look a brighter accent. Because I needed a few more layers, I chose my ZARA faux fur jacket to keep the "spring hue" going while bundling up.  For a little bling, these lovely accessories from

Rocksbox

 do an amazing job! I can't help but be in love with them! Too cute not to wear them every day! If you like them and want to subscribe

Hi LOVEs!!! Happy Friday!

You know what's coming up next month!? YESSS!!!

FASHION WEEK

!!! Unfortunately, once again I won't be able to attend in person due to crazy busy schedule, but it doesn't mean I can't dress up as if I were there, right? When Fashion Week approaches, I naturally get inspired. I start gathering outfit inspirations from everywhere and come up with some outfits that I would definitely rock if I was to attend!! The camel coat is enjoying a major moment right now. It adds you an instant chicness to any outfit, and it's really a versatile item thanks to its neutral color. I have seen a lot of bloggers, like

Song of Style

and

Kayture

, are rocking it and can't get enough of how they style their coats!! I was totally convinced to invest a little money in this

cozy camel coat from

ASOS

. To be honest with you, it's a bit bigger on me even though it was the smallest size, but I can surely live with it! Wink-wink!

So I styled up this look around the coat as the centerpiece and added a neutral colored turtleneck and white skort. I picked leopard printed booties for a bit of something extra since I otherwise the look is kept simple. Leopard shoes will never go out of style. When I was coordinating this look, I decided I would put on a fedora for a touch of sophistication. I am a huge, like HUGE, fan of the fedora, and this pink one is one of the unexpected pieces I never thought I would have in my closet. Pink is often passed off as simply a girly color, but in reality pink has the ability to create the just right amount of  girly-cool vibe while maintaining your feminine charm. So it was perfect to incorporate my pink fedora to this camel coat look. What's the best thing about this fedora? It looks super cute on my new silver hair! <3 <3 Finally, I love how my vintage shoulder bag/clutch compliments the look from the side angle with the leopard booties.

Are you planning to go to Fashion Week? What's your attire?

Have a great weekend babes!

Hi LOVEs!!!! I hope your 2015 has gotten off to a great start so far! ;)

Looking back at my 2014, it was a full of new adventures and opportunities with a lot of happiness and laughter. Yet at the same time, I have to say, it was one of the most challenging, struggling and tough years of my life. Don't take it as negative mood, though because I am totally thankful for those times since they absolutely made myself stronger and more courageous every time I encountered. My greatest mentor always says: "

Unless you struggle, you cannot become truly strong. Those who fight hard during their youth will have nothing to fear when the time comes to put the finishing touches on their lives. They will possess a great state of life that towers strong and unshakeable.

"  

However, when you keep having tough times over and over, you are naturally stressed out and easily get discouraged and less motivated. The few last weeks of my 2014 was just like that. I knew I REALLY needed a BIG change and get super inspired to make me happier so that I was ready for a new year with fresh and clear mind! Who in the world would like to welcome new years filled with despairing feelings?!

  So I grabbed my phone and made an appointment at

Robert Leonard Salon & Spa

! For the longest time, I'd been dying to try platinum blond or silver, yet I always ended up not being able to since my hair had gotten damaged so badly. To be able to fix that and have healthy hair back again, I started using

Moroccan Oil

products

. (I am thinking to blog soon about my hair/the hair products I've been using!) That has really helped my hair so much, and when I told my amazingly talented hairstylist,

Shane

, about what color I wanted to achieve, he said "Oh you will look gorgeous on that color! :D (I took that as a BIG YES!!)

To be truly honest with you and to my surprise, it was more than "extremely" painful process that I've ever had as dying my hair! I could feel the burns and torturous pain on my scalps and had to endure it 4 times... I wasn't even able to smile AT ALL. But, I seriously couldn't be any happier when I met a new me with this crazy silver/blond hair! I felt as if I am looking at a different person, and the color was definitely worth the pain! I actually would never imagine I could ever have pulled off this color! My dream came true right before the new year hit on the grand! I can't thank you enough to

Shane

! He always, ALWAYS gives a dreamy magic on my hair!!!!

Right after that, I called my friend as well as my current photographer,

Marcus

, because I wanted to show my oh-so pretty new hair to someone and couldn't help wanting to photograph it! We made a conclusion of strolling where we both never been, and we ended up checking out

Chihuly Glass and Garden

!

It was one of the most amazing places with tons of inspirations! It was such a magical place to me, and all his works completely blew me away. I felt like I was lost in one of the fairy tales. As I was going inside further, I sensed something inside of myself was reinventing, and when I exited the museum, there was outside exhibition as well. That's where I felt so free at last! You saw the pictures above, but they can't do any justice to the beauty of the place! If you live in Seattle or have a chance to visit the city, you should definitely check them out!

I am so grateful to revive myself right before ringing in the new year with a positive will and motivation! If you still feel gloomy inside yourself even after the new year, why don't you book a salon appointment now and change your hairstyle/color or get cozy and check out a place you've never been to? It might help you somehow ;)

Thanks a lot for reading this long post!! Much appreciated
