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 Monday! 
I hope you had an wonderful Farther's Day yesterday! I wish my dearest dad were in the States with me so I could have spent a happy time and celebrate with my papa! I miss my family to death.... It's been almost three years since I saw them! :( 

It was so sweet of one of my favorite brands 1.State to send over this amazing striped tee and white moto jacket, which I am currently in love with very much! When I looked at them, the first thing that came to my mind was to create an "all white look."  I actually gave it a try last year and I was really pleased with the big-hitting look, so I wanted to really try it again! I definitely adore this all-white ensemble! I like how the outfit looks slightly different with or without the jacket! Even though I wear the jacket, it looks super fresh and I love how the striped tee lets my skin peak through. Yes, just the right amount of allure. I paired with other white items to emphasize the white palette, but I styled with metallic oxford shoes for an unexpected touch! Although my legs look so short, which is why I love wearing heels, I still look nice with this trendy look!! Because of the white hues, my new pink hair stands out really beautifully and is so playful. (OMG! You have no idea how much I love this new color! I finally could be a 'pink mermaid' <3) 

One of the must-have items for summer surely is a pair of mirrored sunglasses. They can effortlessly upgrade your look and really help to frame your face! I've own several, but you know, just like shoes and bags, it never gets enough! I ran into these killer mirrored sunglasses at ASOS! I am seriously obsessed with them! They are always in my purse now! I can't wait to hunt more mirrored sunglasses this summer hehe! 

I hope you like my new hair and hopefully you will get to play around with your hair and an adventurous color this summer! I bet it would make your summer more exciting!!

A Love of Leopard and Metallic

Who doesn't like leopard prints? I believe almost all girls adore leopard prints, and so every year as that season's trends become apparent, leopard prints naturally make it onto the list and garner a lot of fans. Speaking for myself, I happen to own a lot of leopard printed clothes and shoes.
On
 top of that, another trends that I extremely love is.... "metallic."  Thanks to its shimmering fabrics, it can instantly give a flashy impact to any look, which is perfect because during fall and winter dark colors tend to be common. 

I wore this outfit for the Charming Charlie opening event, and I got this silver metallic midi skirt at Nordstrom. I simply paired it up with a lovely leopard top. I am very fascinated with how metallic items can  effortlessly go well with anything. Luckily I have had these gold metallic sandals from ASOS since summer (One of my favorite shoes this year!), and since it's fall and can be quite cold if you don't wear tights or socks, I decided to style the shoes with a pair of polka dot socks to add a touch of playfulness. Since the shoes are gold metallic, I accessorized in all gold jewelry.

I put on a fur collar scarf instead of wearing a jacket or coat to keep myself warm! It really goes well with the leopard top! To finish my look, I styled my hair into a up-do, but this time I added a little twist...
 After lightly curling my hair, I tied it up on top. Then I rolled it up once along with the hair-tie, and pinned it, allowing the curled tips to dangle. It is a 5-min-easy-hairstyle so please try it out yourself! I think it's really pretty and you can create an elaborate up-do hair style! 


I am still hunting for and will keep an eye out for more metallic clothing items...
If 
you find an awesome product, please share it with me! I am dying to know! 
Hopefully I can show off more metallic looks down the road!

Hi my lovely readers! Hope your new week has been treating you well! 
This outfit is what I wore for my best friend's graduation ceremony and guess what? 
I LOVE IT SO MUCH!!!!!!!
First of all, I am completely in love with those rad and trendy metallic sandals from ASOS. I'd never owned a pair of metallic shoes before, so I am glad that I chose these as my first pair! They are just so eye-catching from every direction, right? I also love the heels which are accented with a hologram. They are also available in BLUE, but I believe that this color is much more versatile for my stylings! Whenever I want add some spice to my outfit, these will definitely fit the bill!! The only downside is that the sandals are not my true size, as you can see through the pictures... I got the smallest size available which is US5, but I wish there were one size smaller! Even still, I still got a great pair of spring/summer sandals! I can't wait to rock them with some other spring/summer outfits in the near future! 

Another thing I really love about this outfit is how well the over-sized blazer goes with the low-high sheer skirt! Plus, I was very surprised that it doesn't really make me look short, either! This is totally a new way to wear a blazer! I am quite pleased with this new discovery because I have rarely seen people who style up an over-sized blazer in the way I did, which creates "uniqueness'-- my motto!  

Did you like the way how I paired up the over-sized blazer? Hope you did :)
