3 Ways to Wear A shirt Dress // Final Look: A Trench Coat

Weather around this time is very fluctuating. That makes it so difficult to figure out how to dress every day. On some days, we still need some layers. Here is the final look of how you can rock a shirt dress in 3 ways with totally different styles and vibes.

Hi LOVEs!

I can't believe how fast this year has flown by and only 4 more days left till new years!! Yesterday I got to shoot with a talented FL photographer

Katherine

in collabo with

Haute Hibou

. Located in Captiol Hill, you can go there for a great selection of bohemian and hippie-chic clothing! We managed to shoot 5 outfits in 4 hours and of course we decided to shoot for NYE look! I already peeked a bit at the images, and.... Guess what?!?! WE KILLED IT! I really can't wait to share the look with you guys, so make sure to stay tuned! <3

I've noticed a lot of people are becoming so into non-colored sweaters, and I am not an exception. I do love sweaters in grey, white, and black! They are ridiculously stylish. Yet, sometimes I find myself get tired of wearing those, so I always seek for perfect warm colored sweaters. Then, right on time, I was reached out from

Idol Collective

(Yay for a local small business!! ), and luckily they carry

this amazing army green sweater

with elbow patched details! It's extremely cozy and such a playful piece! Whenever I pick a sweater, I always go for one size or 2 size up for an oversized silhouette.

To style this lovely sweater, I matched the color scheme with a pair of

camo skinny jeans

and a dark green bag. I layered it up with a

button down shirt

underneath and

blazer

over it. I love this layering technique because it never fails to be so chic and sophisticated! I finished the look by pairing these ultimate winter essentials - a

beanie

and

oversized scarf

- for extra coziness because the warmer, the better!!

A little awesome news from

Idol Collective

! They are offering

free shipping

all January in celebration of the new year! Plus my readers can get

15% off

with the special code "

AIKAIDOL15

," which you can get the sweater under $35! Don't forget to take advantage of it!! :)

Have a lovely Tuesday, my cute pies! ♥

Hi LOVEs!!!!!
After coming back from Portland for a quick mini trip, I decided to do another short trip to D.C. with my friend! How exciting!!! One of my resolutions this year is to travel as much as I can. It feels so great to check this off from my list within half a year!! I didn't expect to do two trips in one month, either! I will stay in DC for only 4 nights, but it will be A TON OF FUN! Last Sunday one of my fans sent me a snap asking whether or not I am doing a meet & greet in D.C.! It literally brought me to tears because I seriously thought that this type of thing would only happen after I became a BIG blogger, like Kayture and The Blond Salad! But guys.... this is actually happening! Even more excited to go to D.C. now!

Alright, on to today's look! I got this khaki tee from ZARA, and it's been one of my stable pieces since then! It's so comfy and the color will never go out of style. There are so many ways to style a simple tee from casual to sophisticated. I love switching things up from regular black or white tees to this khaki one. Even though I am almost 30, (Yes! I am hitting 29 this November! ) I am still in love with wearing a denim mini skirt during summer, especially when I get tired of wearing denim shorts. So I put them together with a beaded belt as an accent. This combo definitely works well as-is, but I threw on a boyfriend blazer for a more polished look. I've been wearing these killer sporty-inspired sandals I snagged recently from JustFab, and I was blown away by how they can go with any look! Such an amazing pair to create a color-blocking ensemble or simply for a pop of color!

Make sure to follow me along on Instagram, Twitter, and Snapchat (@fashionsitaika) for D.C. fun!
Have a wonderful Tuesday, cuties!

Hi LOVEs!!!! 
When my new blogger friend, Diana, found me through Lookbook.nu, she contacted me to set up for meet-up, and I was so pleasure to meet her for the first time!! She was such a lovely girl and I knew we would be BFF immediately! We both are from overseas - she is from Kazakhstan, and I am from Japan - so I instantly felt really close to her without not knowing much. I wish I could spend more time while she was here because now she went back to Virginia, and I miss her so much!

I wore this look when we had a brunch together by Alki Beach, one of my favorite spots in Seattle. Unfortunately we didn't have a good luck on the weather. It was super gloomy and drizzling. Yup, welcome to Seattle! :p I kinda wanted to go for laid back style, so I decided to pick anything with loose fit. Pairing a sheer blouse and boyfriend jeans is my new favorite combo now! I styled it with my old khaki boots as my rain boots lol You can laugh at me because I am the type of girl who wears booties even when it rains.
I topped it off in my No.1 beloved faux fur jacket that I scored from Zara this season. I LOVE THIS JACKET to death. Don't think I am saying too much. It's an amazingly perfect jacket! Seriously can't get enough of everything about it. Pink pastel color, awesome fitting, its textures, and how warm it can keep me! My love affair with this number is growing every time I wear it. Even though spring is approaching and the sun is out more often, sadly it's still chilly and I have to bundle up. Whenever I am so lazy to style my hair, I always go for a fedora. It definitely helps me look effortlessly so chic. I wanna make a fashion proverb: "When doubt, go for a fedora. You won't regret it at all." Do you agree?

By the way, Diana is a Creative Director for IFBKSeoul, and I had a chance to be featured on there. You can read my interview HERE if interested.

Hope you all have a beautiful day!


~ SHOP THE LOOK ~
