Hi LOVEs!
It's finally Friday and even better, it's Labor Day Weekend!!! Woot Woot! Do you have any awesome plans, sweeties?
First and foremost, thank you all so very much for the lovely and warm messages on the previous post whether you left them on here or on my social channels. It gives me a lot of courage and smiles, and it's good to know that we are all connected somehow and feel like we are not alone!<3

For the last several days in Seattle, the weather dramatically changed! It has been rainy and the temperature has dropped down like crazy! I wore my first cozy knit yesterday, and I totally wasn't ready for that! I still feel like I haven't checked everything off from my summer to-do list yet! I am really excited to share today's look, because it gives a fun summer vibe!
I got such a cute off-shoulder mini dress with lace sleeve details from New Dress, where you can get everything at extremely affordable prices! I was a little bit disappointed when I received this dress, because it is a bit too long. Well, I think it may be because of me, since I am super petite! haha
As always, I added a black belt to adjust the length, and it actually ended up better looking. It looks like a romper! I opted for a pair of lace-up wedge sandals to create an easy, breezy look.  Thanks to the off-shoulder design and lace elements, I love how the entire look is elevated with a touch of elegance and femininity.
Because of my hair, coordinating myself in monochromatic colors is really captivating me. It was really natural to select black items to finish the look - my all-time favorite brimmed hat and these new sunnies (only $3.05! Can you believe it?!) from NewDress. This look wasn't for a festive theme or anything, but the combination of a faux suede fringe bag and this lace off-shoulder dress is definitely perfect for that occasion! Maybe I can wear it next year?!

Hope that you all have a fun & amazing Labor Day weekend! I am planning on seeing my girl friends from LA, I am so excited! Make sure to follow me along on Instagram & Snapchat (@fashionistaika)!!!

Ciao, cutie pies! ♥

Hi LOVEs!!!
Happy Sunday! Even though I wore this look on a Monday a few weeks ago,  it's safe to say that this can be a perfect 'Sunday Funday' look. Do you agree? This dress is so pretty it makes me want to twirl around! It puts a smile on my face!

I'd been looking for a fab floral printed dress that I can wear from day to night. This number is definitely the one I'd had in my mind for decades. Though it has slinky silhouette, its texture is extremely comfortable so it doesn't give you that "body-hugging" feeling. Needless to say, the print is just adorable! I threw on a faux suede jacket on over it ( By the way, this is my current obsession! Been wearing it like crazy!) to tone it down for a "day" look. Before I got my hands on this suede jacket, I used to put on a biker jacket. However, now I am more in love with the combo of a dress and a suede jacket! If you haven't snagged one yet, well I highly recommend you do! I selected some of my faves including mine down below ;) Right now it's the best substitute outerwear right now for whatever jacket you already tired of!

The day I wore this outfit, I went to Robert Leonard Salon and Day Spa to be a hair model for Avant Garde up-do styling class. My stylist decided to do this fluffy side-down up-to hair. I couldn't be more pleased with how the hair topped off the whole look! 

What would you wear for your Sunday Funday?
Lots of weekend love!
