Blush Slip Dress & Half-Up Top Knot

Having a slip dress is no doubt a game changer in summer. Of course, you would be more drawn to a cute off-the-shoulder dress or bright sun dress. Yet, slip dresses give you countless wardrobe options in more effortless ways.

Sweatpants are not designed for your best friend on a lazy Sunday, as the easiest workout gear, or only worn as your comfiest airport attire any longer.

As you guys know my style already, I am not a huge fan of sneakers. But when you find a pair of leather kicks that so well-made in Italian leather, you can't really say NO to them.

#OOTD Roundup ❶

Hi LOVEs!!!!

It's new year! Time to do something new! If you follow my

Instagram

longer enough, you know that I've been sharing my daily outfits on there whenever I can (Not having a boyfriend or husband is such a huge headache when it comes to take daily outfit pictures!!) I thought that it would be nice to share them here with you guys, that way you can actually shop my looks because I always ask those questions "where did you buy this?" on Insta. I also created a new category named "OOTD" on top bar for an easy access for the past and future posts!

I hope you like this new segment! <3 <3

I wore this super casual look for a Japanese nabe (hotpot) party with my Japanese friends. It was already dark outside so snapped this look at a grocery store! Kind of surprised that it came out well and stylish, which ended up that

Nasty Gal

shared this look

on all their social media! Totally #MadyMyDay moment! :)

Hi LOVEs!!!!

When it comes to making an outfit on a daily basis, does it mostly depend on your mood or any clothes or piece you want to sport? Or is it something else? In my case, it's generally the latter, and that's why newly added items to my closet always happen to be on heavy rotation. Do you often do the same? 

I recently got thise 

awesome pair of booties

that are hand-crafted with an amazing deep green calf hair from

ALYSIA

. It's already too cold to rock this pair barefoot in Seattle, but I've been wearing them with tights and socks since the week I received it. I can't get over how sophisticated they are, and the comfiness is beyond incredible!!! For today's look, I decided to center these booties to create the rest of the outfit, which I thought it would be fun to achieve the "Earth Color" combo style with a bit of a casual sporty vibe. This look could be perfect for watching sports and holiday shopping! Green and camel is such an easy way to create that style, so I simply combined my favorite

khaki sweater

and

camel faux suede jacket

, along with my comfiest

J Brand

jeans

By the way, I almost forgot to tell you that you can customize your shoes from the heel shape to insole color on

ALYSIA

! Isn't is amazing? Their shoes have been featured on notable fashion magazines like InStyle, People, OK!, and more! So you better check them out because their shoes are too lovely to pass on for the adoring holiday gift idea!

Enjoy your Sunday, cuties! ♥

Hi LOVEs!!!

It's finally Friday, and I couldn't be happier because the weather is looking like it will be so nice and sunny for the next three days! No more gloomy weather! (for a while at least! )

It's crazy how much the temperature is dropping down day by day.  It's so hard to get out of my bed every morning because it is so snuggly. This chilly weather sometimes drives me nuts, and don't wanna think too much about what I am going to wear for that day. I figured that an easy solution is going for a casual look with a basic combo. But you still want to look chic and fab, of course! This is what I ended up wearing. A plain

white tee

,

leather mini

,

chunky cardigan

, and

OTK boots

-- These are my current go-to basic pieces because they are amazingly versatile items that you could style with almost anything!

To my surprise, I didn't own a

black chunky carding

until recently. And having it in my closet has  seriously been saving my life. I can layer another cardigan underneath, for great chemistry with a cozy scarf, and I really like the oversized silhouette that balances out my short height, especially when I wear flats. Then styling it with a pair of

OTK boots

is totally trendy and on point!

If you are opting for a casual yet fashionable look, make sure to add something eye-catching like a statement necklace, killer sunnies, or pop of color. Imagine this look without these gorgeous

statement necklaces

(yes, I double-layered! ), it would end up as a completely plain outfit. I also decided to elevate my look with my new

cat-eye sunnies from Polette

and my all-time favorite

NARS red lips

. Not only are they a great finishing touch, but I also covered my too-tired-from-yesterday face. It's a double win!

Don't forget to use "AIKAS20" at

Mirina Collections

for gorgeous statement necklaces! Their necklaces are just so perfect right now for a party occasion or a holiday gift for any woman!

Hope you have a wonderful & fun weekend ahead, beauties!

Hi LOVEs! Happy Friday! Any fun plan for the weekend?

If you are petite like me, you know the real struggle of finding a pair of perfect jeans? Well.. That hits me all the time! Although skinny jeans are pretty easy to get your hands on, when it comes to other type of jeans, it's really pain in the butt. So it was extremely a happy moment when I found these

H&M

flare wide leg jeans

online, and the fit is amazingly flawless when it was arrived!! It's high-waist, and I appreciate it making my legs look longer. Plus, I don't need to tailor the hems or wear sky-high heels thanks to the just right amount of the length!! I was finally able to ride on the wave of this 70's inspired jean trend! haha

I paired them with my favorite oversized blush knit for an easy-going style - like a brunch-with-my-girls-look. In fact, I caught up with one of my new friends,

Emmy

who is a Vancouver based jewelry designer. I super adore her pieces, and this look was so perfect to feature her dainty handmade beautiful accessories. 

I am wearing:

Liv Diamond Spike Necklace

Linnea Necklace

Stax Labradorite Bracelet

Stax Linnea Bracelet

Linnea Thread Earrings

I highly recommend you to check out her website for more fab pieces! My favorites are definitely stone contained necklaces!

I am still hunting for another pair of flare jeans, more like the ones with tight on the thigh and flare at the bottom. So if you know of any stores you could recommend, please comment below! :)

On the side (personal) note, I am freaking excited to attend

Hello Kitty Supercute Operning Party

with my blogger friend, Bailey of

Hot Dress Hot Mess

 . Special thanks to

UNIQLO

for the tickets at the last second (They were sold out so quickly, we couldn't get our tickets until 2 days ago! ) Follow along the fun time with Hello Kitty on my snap: @

Have a great weekend ahead, dolls!

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! Happy Sunday!

Ever since

suede skirts

have been a big trend, I'd been dying to get my hands on one too. Unfortunately luck wasn't on my side, and I was about to give up on the hunt... Then I was reached out to by this Israel brand called

CASTRO

, and they gave me the luck I was waiting for!!! On top of that, I was really impressed by their passionate for fashion, their goals, and who they are -

Castro

is the Israeli answer to global fashion. It incorporates the love and passion for fashion, quality and design. Those aspects together with the Tel Aviv and Israeli character whose source is in their nature as people and as a fashion house: energetic, colorful, urban free, happy, and sexy, with a pinch of chutzpah. 

I am so happy to style a fall-ready look with their lovely pieces and share the look with you guys! I adore their urban, sophisticated, and fun style! Of course I had to pick up this suede mini skirt and decided to make a casual ensemble along with it. I selected an

off-white top with a deep open-back design

and a pair of

leather oxford shoes

! I added  vintage chain printed scarf gifted by my grandma as a transitioning element to the look, and I can't get over how the chicness of the entire outfit is elevated! I've been owning this scarf, and I finally figured it out how to rock it! I topped it off with some cute accessories including their

multiple-colored bag

and

double sided pearl earrings

! This bag is so on point, I love the mix of burgundy color and chain straps!!  

This is probably one of my favorite looks that I have done recently! What do you think guys?

Hope your weekend has been treating you nice!

Hi LOVEs! Happy Labor Day!!!!
I will try to make today's post short and sweet because it's a holiday! ;)

I wore this look a week ago when I was hanging out with my friend. I wanted to dress up because it was her birthday, but I only got to sleep for a few hours the day before since it was insanely busy!!! Even though I am a total heal-lover, I couldn't help going for a pair of comfortable shoes that day so that I could save some energy to have fun with her because I knew we were going out for some shopping! lol
Wearing black and white is always so chic and stylish. I used to not be quite in love with this combo. Personally, it felt too simple, yet I am a big fan now!!!! Maybe because I have a pink hair, which is such a great statement accessory especially for a pop of color, I realized that black and white ensembles are NOT simple after all! It's actually an ultimate killer go-to outfit!
For the look, I chose a maxi skirt with side slit styling it with a lace cropped top. These pieces definitely have feminine aspects, so even though I decided to wear low-heeled booties to finish the look, it doesn't look too casual and it is still appropriate for the meet-up with my birthday girl! If you are a short girl like myself, try to opt for boots/booties that are pointy! I know it's always challenging for the shorties to find the right boots, but the design gives you the trick of lean and lengthy legs! That said, I am so pleased to recently get my hands on these awesome booties from Qupid via Charlotte Russe where you can find an amazing selection of pointed ankle boots!!

What do you think about today's casual look? Hope you love it!
Have a lot of fun on your Labor Day! ♥
