Hi LOVEs!!

I hope you had a very productive week and are so ready to kick off a fun weekend!

My week was super hectic, which is why I am writing this right now at 10pm! haha

I am so thrilled to share with you a comfy piece that I received from


recently. To be honest with you, I really had no idea how I was going to style

this mint polo

when I received it because for me, polo shirts are something that I wear for the purpose of  playing sports! So I had to stand in front of the mirror for a while, wearing this polo to come up with some styling inspiration. Then, I came to the realization that I should go with a basic and casual look that could be worn as a day-to-day outfit! Styling it with a pair of denim pants seemed like the the right choice! Even though this is a casual look, I decided to wear platform sandals add a touch of sophistication and chicness to the look. Also, adding some height manages to balance it out (as always!!) You can definitely switch them out for to flats or sneakers!!

On top of the playful mint color,

this polo

is super lightweight and I love its fabric that features a breathable pique that dries out very quickly. On the day of shooting, it was really sunny. I was slowly sweating while searching for a location to shoot, but I was very comfortable in this polo shirt! As you may have noticed, I like to style it by turning up the collar. Some people don't like it, but I think it's a good way to not look frumpy! Even better looking with a big bun hairstyle if you have a long hair!

The price is super wallet-friendly, and

there are selections of 12 fun colors

including basic colors like white, gray and black! It's a perfect every day piece for the warming weather!

Sweet dreams! Oyasuminasai!

Jewelry Boutique Fresh Tangerine & GIVEAWAY!

Hi LOVEs!!!! Happy Friday!
You know what's coming up in a few weeks? Yes!!! Valentine's Day!!! So I planned to host a giveaway via my Instagram to return my appreciation and love to all my lovely readers and followers, so make sure to read till the end!!

It was really pleasure to stop by my new favorite local jewelry boutique/studio called Fresh Tangerine (what a juicy name!) last week, and I had a lot of fun meeting the sweet team, taking a look at their gorgeous jewelry and getting so inspired at the showroom, even though it was a short visit.

First thing I have to say is.... I absolutely LOVED their space! Their interior and decor is just too adorable and made me wish that it was my place! I love how they display all their delicate and fabulous pieces everywhere using furniture, woods and glasses, ornaments, etc..  The space is full of inspiration with a lot of feminine and vintage vibes, and you can also peek their production area as well as a little maker station, which is also fun thing you can get a behind the scene look! I snapped some shots of their space for you! You can also have yourself tour on here!

As you enter, this is first thing you see! That heart wall, though!

Artsy rope curtains

My favorite dainty bracelets <3

A lot of inspirations in this area! Gimme a cup of tea and fashion magazine!

Dream catchers & inspirational quotes on the wall!!

Of course I had to take #OOTD with their amazing space behind

Fresh Tangerine is know for easy-to-wear that are feminine, delicate, and unexpected. they make each piece by hand in here at their studio using quality metals and materials sourced from around the world.
Who doesn't like delicate, subtle jewelry that you can wear everyday? Their pieces are just perfect and totally bold enough to update and elevate your looks with minimal sparkles. You can also mix it up and stack them with other rings you already own. I myself who really appreciates details and focuses on head-to-toe style, I instantly became obsessed with their jewelry. I added some of them into my collection; Geode Ring,  Glitter Stacking Ring & Twisted Stacking Ring (on my middle finger)
Aren't they adorable? Love them with my fresh DIY nails!

Hi LOVEs!!!! Happy Monday!!!
I wore this outfit a few weekends ago, and you have no idea how much I love this fun look! Navy is definitely one of my favorite colors to wear during this season! Lighter than black and a smattering of color that makes a look cheer.  I've been in love with this navy military cap and stripe turtle neck ever since I've owned, so I styled them together. I really adore how the outfit turned out effortlessly chic. Paring a turtleneck with denim shorts and over-the-knee boots are such an easy yet cozy combination! Oh don't forget to put on tights for extra warmth! Wearing a biker jacket adds a great amount of an edgy touch. I could wear this ensemble for any kind of occasion; a brunch date, a quick coffee meet with a friend, movie night, or even just running errands! It could be a perfect date style as well, if you switch the denim shorts into a skirt! Absolutely my everyday go-to look! And when your nails match with whatever you wear, that's even more fabulous! 

  If you are a huge fun of wearing turtleneck right now just like myself, try "the Hair Tuck" trend! I have always had a desire to have a short/medium bob hairstyle, but at the same time I don't want to courageously chop off my long hair! So this "even doesn't take 10 seconds to achieve" tucked hairstyle option is the most easiest and chicest way I've been trying for a while now!

Here is how to: 
Purposely leave the hair in the collar or tuck the mid-lengths and end of your hair into the necklines of your clothes, and then style however you want. Like pulling your hair behind an ear or put a hat on. 

Look how easy it is! This hair style can apply to anything with collars: sweaters, coats, shirts, and even with scarves! The perfect stylish on-trend hair with minimal efforts! 

Xmas is within 3 days, guys! I know everyone is so thrilled like a little kid, and I hope you saw a lot of your names on the presents under the tree! On the next few post, I will be posting holiday inspired looks ft. Tobi dresses to give you some inspirations of what to wear holiday parties and on NYE, so stay tuned!

Let's kick off the new week with a lot of smiles! :)
