Hi LOVEs!!!! How was your weekend?
Here is the second look featuring Style Moi, one of my new beloved fashion online destination. Can I tell you something? The word can't express how much I love this versatile oh-so lovely off shoulder top!!!!! I'd been dying to get my hands on a summer top like this, but I just didn't have a chance to encounter a piece I really want to wear or fit my petite body perfectly. As I mentioned on the previous post, they offer a variety range of size options, and I got it in XS which is super hard to find the size in the US clothing stores.
This top is so soft and comfortable, and you can rock it from day to night. I even used as a cover top when I went to beach thanks to its sheer fabric!! On top of the off-shoulder design, these bell sleeves are what makes this top much cuter!

I styled it with high waisted denim shorts and my new summer wedge sandals for a chic effect. Even though the top is just as cute itself, I wanted to glam it up a little more with some gold jewelry. I layered a collar necklace and multirow necklace. This is such an unexpected combination, but I am actually loving it!  I was gifted this little pretty crystal ear cuff from my blogger babe, Tiffany at a blogger brunch. I adore her store called t + j Design and so happy to own this cute cuff because sometimes I don't want to over-accessorize myself, yet need some bling, which this one is the perfect piece for the occasion!

I hope you like how I style this Style Moi off-shoulder top! What is your summer-ready look?
Have a lovely week, dolls!

Hi LOVEs!!!!
Recently I have run into a super cool fashion online store called Stylemoi! Have you guys heard of it? If not, you should definitely check them out! They have a ton of lovely stuff that wows you!! One of the amazing facts about them is that they offer variety of size choices from XS to XXL! With that said, I am so honored to collaborate with Stylemoi and get hands on their summer-ready pieces! I was so lucky to pick 4 things, which I am sharing with you one of them today.
These freaking fun ripped knee jeans caught my eyes immediately when I found them on there. Then, I am completely in love with them in person! Denim jeans, high-waisted, well-fitting, and ripped. What would you need more? I decided to go for a 70's vibe styling them with my current finds, a cable knit cropped top and bold cat eye sunnies! If you dig 70's vibe, a combo of high-neck crop tops and high-waisted bottoms is one of the effortless way to achieve it. This ensemble is gonna be heavy rotation for sure! What do you guys think?

I am super thrilled that I am going on a quick short trip today to Portland with my friend which I decided to plan at the last second! It probably won't let me do a lot of activities there since I am going along with his client meetings, but it's always refreshing to change a pace just by going somewhere fur, right? Follow me on Instagram (@aikasloveclose) or Snapchat (@fashionistaika) for more real-time updates!

Happy Thursday, cutie pies! ♥

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!
