Hi LOVEs! How's your week been so far? I hope it's been a wonderful and productive one!

Today's post is all about BLACK (and edgy)!!!!! Ever since I finally turned into a "little mermaid" thanks to the talented Miguel at

Foxy Cut

, I've been so into a minimal, classic, monotone colored pieces. When I went to Portland a few weeks ago, of course I had to take advantage of "no-tax" shopping. Then, I snuggled this super soft

ribbed knit midi number at

Forever 21

! It's a little challenging to rock the dress with this length for a petite girl like myself, but its comfiness totally got me buying this number. It's literally like a pajama! haha

I loooove #allblackeveything and #whiteout themed looks especially during the summer just because I don't have to use a lot of brain power to think of what to wear in hot HOT weather! So I decided to style the look centered on the dress with black items: black strappy sandals, and a black mini bag. Yet, I spiced it up by adding a

purple lipstick

( a killer match for my hair, right?!) and

these awesome mirrored sunnies from


, which is a must item for summer! Needless to say, my hair is doing a freaking great job at adding a perfect spice on the look!

How do you like wearing all black during the summer? Yay or Nay?

Hang in there, babes! It's almost Friday!!!!

Blue Stripes & Chambray

Dressing up in this striped casual dress on a beautiful day having a little fun!

I really appreciate the super lovely weather. It looks like it's already summer, which I love so much! As the temperature gets higher, I get to enjoy wearing more dresses because; 1) it's super comfy and 2) effortless to add a feminine touch. This blue striped casual dress is definitely a fun piece, but I thought it would be cuter if I spiced it up a little bit. So I paired it with a chambray shirt as a jacket, a boater hat for a spring/summer vibe. This hat has been my go-to hat every spring and summer. I still love wearing fedoras and floppy hats, but boater hats seem more like seasonally appropriate pieces that you can easily create a summer-perfect look with. I decided to go for black platform sandals so that the stripe print pops more.

Speaking of the location where I shot this look... I came to Discovery Park and it's absolutely one of my favorite places in Seattle. It's breathtakingly beautiful and there is lots of green. The air is so refreshing which relaxes me so much!! I was there for about an hour, but you have no idea how much I felt revived! I wanna come back again for a weekend picnic or just enjoy the view, forgetting all about social media! :P

Happy Friday dolls!

Hi LOVEs! It's finally FriYAY!
I don't know whether or not my new hair color affects how I decide which clothes I wanna wear, but I feel like I am so into girly styles lately. Similarly, when I had side-shaved my hair, I was completely obsessed with more of an edgy style.  If you're a sucker for colored hair like I am, I wonder does that happen to you as you switch up the colors?
When Fevrie sent me this cute floral print sweater ( really sad to say that this piece is an exclusive item  which is cannot be bought :( ), I came up with this ensemble in a second. Chic and cute! Floral pints continue to grow in popularity for this spring/summer, and wearing gray for spring is still fun and in style. So this sweater is perfectly divine! Especially when I simply want to throw on a piece and don't wanna wear anything on top of it. Although I initially wanted go with the same color family from head to toe, unfortunately I don't own any gray pair heels. So I picked these cute sky-high platform heels. I am actually pleased with how these shoes give me more height and elongate my legs. Plus adding a black fringed bag to match these heels really helps balance the whole look. As for jewelry, these Rocksbox earrings and Petite Sesame necklace has been in heavy rotation. (Use "aikasloveclosetxoxo" to get your first month of jewelry FREE!) I appreciate we can finally celebrate showing off lovely accessories more as it gets warmer!  

By the way, Fevrie is working on launching the Fevrie Tendance Project by bringing together top fashion bloggers and European fashion designers to create the first ever limited edition collection hand picked by your favorite fashionsita.

'DEEP BLUE SEA' NECKLACE: Bad Kitty Accessories



 Hi LOVEs!!!
I hope that you had an amazing weekend! It's about time to ready for the next weekend. Only a few left this summer -- make them count! For some time now, I've longed to work again with one of my beloved friends and most talented photographers I know in Seattle, Eric. He had been taking a break from pressing the shutters, (Yes, I'd been very sad...) but he recently decided to get back on in the saddle and resume photography! The moment he responded to my request for a photoshoot with a 'Yes, let's do it', I was so excited! As always, I had a lot of pleasurable moments shooting with him. So glad to create some magic with him again!  

As a perfect backdrop for this outfit, he took me to one of the popular spots in Seattle known for capturing the Seattle's spectacular views. When we got there, we were right on time to come across a beautiful sunset. I was literally speechless for a little while....

I think the last time I wore these jeans was like a decade ago. Yeah... it's summer, it's better to wear shorts or sundress to keep it cool, and I totally agree with that. But you know it's always fun to change the things up, right? (Of course in a good way!) I really like this summer look with these skinny jeans! Since they are low-rise, it makes the top look like a crop top, showing a little bit of skin around my tummy, and letting in a bit of a breeze.  I also hadn't worn these beautiful pumps for a long time, and they always make me incredibly happy. I can't just get enough of shoes that give a plenty amount of height yet are very comfortable to walk around!
Because the top is blue stripes, I styled it up with a gorgeous "Deep Blue Sea" necklace! I am very fascinated that a single statement necklace can instantly add such an impact to an outfit. If you live in the Seattle area, I highly recommend checking out Bad Kitty Accessories in Southcenter Mall. They are a very new jewelry store, but they carry a vast selection of wonderful pieces that surely add that WOW to your look. As a case in point, my necklace is from Bad Kitty Accessories and you can't deny its effect! <3

To speak a little bit about a hairstyle, the 'pompadour ponytail' is an easy yet versatile hairstyle for summer. It makes a simple ponytail look dressed-up, is flattering to most face shapes, and most amazingly, helps you avoid the heat around your neck while looking elegant! If you are tired of your everyday ponytail and are looking for a little twist, it is also a perfect updo that is not too complicated!!

I hope you enjoyed how I wore jeans in this summer look!
Have a lovely Tuesday

Panama Spring Mix

HIGH WAISTED DENIM SHORTS (similar HERE on sale): Aritzia
PLATFORMS (similar HERE): Steve Madden


Hope you had a great weekend and that your week has started out well! My weekend was crazy busy because of the SEE Eyewear trunk shows that I hosted (my first time EVER), followed by an in-store brand launch party that I attended at ZEBRA Club!
The SEE Eyewear trunk shows was super duper fun!! I immensely enjoyed the experience while I was there! Like I said, it was my first time to host an event or party; I was very nervous and anxious about how well I would do. However, the SEE Eyewear team was really friendly and great people to work with!  I was also very pleased to see my friends coming to my events. :)
I wore this outfit to my second event!! Just a little note -- I didn't expect that the day would end up freaking cold and rainy so this outfit was not appropriate at all! lol

Since we were celebrating a new spring/summer collection, I wanted to wear something that showcases  both a spring and summer feeling! So, I picked this lovely panama hat as my main statement piece for the whole outfit. I am totally in love with its shape! It took me forever to find the shape that I'd been picturing and it perfectly fit on my head. I think I got it last year, but I haven't had the chance to wear it as often as I wanted to. So I am happy that I could wear it from early spring! I really like combo of the classy and playful vibe in this look. I believe I successfully manged to wear black in a spring look by showing some skin and styling with light colored denim shorts and transparent earrings! Wearing an oversized or long blazer and shorts will be one of my go-to styles for a while. It is definitely easy and quick, but still looks so stylish from any angle. Also I can't wait to get additional mirrored sunglasses this summer just because they are super funky as a cool addition to your ensemble!

What's your current go-to spring style? Do you have any item you're dying to snag?
I went for shopping at ZARA last Saturday after the event and got a bunch of awesome items <3 I can't wait to show them here with my styling!

Hope you all have an amazing Tuesday
