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! :)

Hi LOVEs! Fall is finally here!
Before I came to the States all by myself - no friends, no relatives - 6 years ago,  I used to easily give up, especially on my dreams. I didn't even try hard to give things a shot. I felt that I couldn't accomplish anything, even if I tried. I didn't have courage and expected that things would only happen if they were meant to be. But you know, that is not right. If you want things to happen, you gotta try and put some effort to make them materialize. After I was here in America on my own for a few years, I slowly yet dynamically changed myself and even my life. I would say it was a 180 degree change.  I became stronger, more courageous, and more ambitious. I gained more self-confidence and I envision that my life is going to be what I want it to be. I try to overcome my fear of doing doing something that might be uncomfortable or that seems to be super new to me.

To be honest with you, it is super hard and tough to pursue my dreams in a foreign country. I've been struggling with many many things and that has brought deep depression on occasion. However, I always strive to push myself to work hard with solid will and strong passion not to be defeated. I am so determined that nothing can stop me. Even though sometimes I amy experience times of negativity, now I feel like I am finally "alive" and I sense that I have my feet on the right path with a clear vision of my destination. Finally, I found how to be "true to myself."
 Ever since I decided to pursue my dreams, I have had a lot of mottos in mind to keep myself going, and one of them is definitely... "Don't give up!!!" Although I have had to face innumerable obstacles on the path to chase my dreams, having this quote in my head really helps me to stand up, and as a result I've encountered numerous moments that made me think "This is just too good to be true!" I still can't believe some of the smaller dreams were actually realized already within short periods. Because of that, I can now confidentially say this:
As long as you don't give up, you can make anything happen no matter how long it may take.

With the being said, I am very pleased to get my hands on this tee with such an inspiring quote from Le Motto. I really admire what they believe and what they do:

We believe that words do have power and each tee presents an original personal motto. The fundamental purpose behind the Le Motto Collection is to promote positivity.  With the impact of just a few well-chosen words, it can be enormous! In addition to promoting universal positivity, currently 10% of profits are being allocated to anti-bullying causes.  

How amazing is that? Besides the motto I picked, there are more inspirational motto tees available on their site, and of course mens tees are there, too! To style up my tee, I paired it with some major basic items such as a blazer and denim shorts. Yet, it's time to cozy up! I added a rib beanie for a pop of color and a pair of over-the-knee boots! (Oh god, these ones are amazingly comfy, thank you so much Mom!) I finished off by adding a fringe bag for a touch of edginess, and I loved how I rocked it when I folded the bag half and used it as a clutch!     

What's is your motto for life?
Thank you very much for stopping by!

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
