I Found The Perfect Workout Top That I Can Wear All Day

The perfect simple top to style my day look and then workout in. Nothing can beat a simple yet comfortable UNIQLO's new AIRism bratop.

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.

Hi LOVEs!!!
Do you have the problem when you decide just to do a little window shopping but end up buying something because the price is too good to pass it up? Well...that always happens to me whenever I go to Forever 21. And that's how I scored this perfect denim jacket! It was one of the deals of the week and was only $21, and once I tried it on, there was no way I could resist it.  Even though I have really narrow shoulders, the fit is amazing and I didn't have one with this length yet. I can imagine that this classic jacket can be worn in any season and makes me look so stylish. For the current season I would layer something underneath like a huge sweater, style it with a chunky scarf and a beanie or hat, or put another outerwear over it... The options are endless...!

This time, I wanted to make a 90's inspired look around this jacket since I already have this crazy (in a good way of course) mermaid/colorful hair. What would the 90's fashion be without denim styles? You know, history tends to repeat itself and that saying definitely comes up in the fashion and beauty world. So I just mixed up a lot of 90's fashion and beauty staples to create the look, which I paired the jacket with a high waisted denim and a cropped top. I should have swapped the chain neckless to a choker, but adding my new clear aviator gives a fresh and fun effect to the look with a cooler 90's vibe. I opted for a pair of gold pumps so that the look is elevated in more chic way. 
I recently ran into this beautiful deep berry lipstick from Milani when I did massive cosmetic shopping with Fred Meyer. ( The haul post is coming soon! ) I've been so in love with it. It's not too dark, yet it's deep enough for a pop of edginess! Guess what, it matches the bag! 

I am going to my FIRST Halloween party tonight and will be modeling with an awesome costume and makeup, so hung out with me via Instagram or Snapchat -- @fashionistaika
It's almost Friday, hang in there babes! ♥

Hi LOVEs!
I hope you all enjoyed the weekend with its breathtakingly amazing weather! I really wanted to take advantage of it, so went to Alki Beach with my friends and was so excited to finally get some fun summer time wearing a bikini by the beach! Of course we took a bunch of pictures and videos on Snapchat (@fashionsitaika)!!! After that, we decided to get some delicious dinner at Duke's Chowder House! Our table was on the roof top, and we got to see the sunset while eating award-winning chowder! It was a pure bliss! Luckily I am now living closer to the beach, like only 45 mins by bus! That means I am really looking forward to doing this over and over again during the summer! What did you guys do?

 Ever since I realized how styling can definitely expand the versatility of my wardrobe without buying new clothes or by reusing whatever I have in my closet, I always enjoy making different looks by using some of the same pieces. I am not wearing anything new in today's look, (except a couple of lovely jewelry from Rebecca Minkoff & JJ Caprices [Use code "aikaslovecloset" for 15%off!]) but challenged myself to recreate a different outfit from a chic look to a super casual look!

I've been obsessed with a combo of crop tops and high waisted bottoms lately. I used to not like pairing a denim jacket with denim jeans, but I figured that it's one of the great way to look so chic! I kept the look the same hue by adding these blue metallic sandals and my all-time fave white clutch. Although the crop top is a bit casual, having these gorgeous gem earrings around my face help to elevate the look!

Thank you so much for stopping by! Wishing you a wonderful new week to kick off!

Hi LOVEs!!!! Happy hump day!

Thanks to the spring season, I've been totally into wearing lots of pretty colors and spring dresses lately! I hated that the weather last week was terrible! It was like a return to winter cold last Monday.... However, I am super happy to have the real spring weather back this week in Seattle! Yesterday was amazingly warm and beautiful with no chilly wind, so I took advantage of it to shoot at Discovery Park! Lots of nature and a bunch of pretty daisies blooming in the window sills!! :)

Speaking of spring dresses, I loooooooove this pastel yellow skater dress courtesy of Charlotte Russe! I was about to look for a dress in pastel so it arrived JUST in time! The cutout in the back adds the right amount of the sex appeal, which I love the most about this dress! I actually didn't have anything that has a nice cutout on the back so it's double yays for me! Since the length turned out a bit longer, I wore the belt to adjust it! It look perfect now!
This denim jacket has been one of the must-have items for spring, and I have two -- one light and dark color! I chose the lighter one for this look so it goes with the dress flawlessly. I slipped on a pair of pastel strap sandals (loving the ombre lucite heels!) and can't get enough of how they complete the whole look with the dress!
Charlotte Russe is one of my favorite wallet-friendly online stores and they always carry a great selection of cute and fab dresses plus other cool stuff! Unfortunately, this dress is no longer available, but I highly recommend checking them out now and then! I bet you will have a nice shopping experience!!! <3

Can I talk about a little bit jewelry I am wearing on today's look? The four pieces on me today - pearl necklace, butterfly bracelet, chain bracelet, and midi rings - are from Modern Trend. My Instagram (@aikaslovecloset) friend owns the online store. Her jewelry is always superb, and I can't help but liking her stuff on her Instagram (@jesscafang). I finally was able to buy her amazing pieces early this month and have been in love with all of them! You should definitely follow her on Instagram and check her online store as well! Make sure to keep eye on some good deals with a lovely discount (because I grabbed mine at a 50% off discount! Scored!)


Have a lovely day
