Olive Monochrome & Oversized Scarf

I always love a look with one color from head to toe. I've tried it in all-white and all-black, and now I'm craving for some colors to play with instead!

Summer Grey Matter


It's safe to say, all-grey is the new black.

Hi LOVEs!
I've mentioned before that having crazy colored hair has made me wear single-toned looks more often than ever. My affection for these styles is getting bigger and bigger because they are just so easy to rock. It's so great that you don't need to spend much effort and time coordinating the whole look, or thinking of wether or not each piece goes well together. With that being said, here is the all-gray look that I am currently into. I don't have many grey clothes, but luckily I have this side slit maxi skirt and grey sweater to make the style. During my DC trip, I scored this super comfy and soft V-neck sweater! Though we still have to beat the summer heat, Seattle weather is sometimes unpredictable so this sweater keeps me warm on those chill days, especially when it rains. And its loose fit is just everything! 

I decided to pair these sandals with mesh details for a pop of sporty vibe and to add some playfulness into this all-grey look! It was a little humid, so I simply took advantage of it to put my hair in a side high ponytail. I am happy I styled it this way because it gives a breezy mood.  

I really want to try one tone looks with some fun colors rather than black, white, and grey this fall and winter! Burgundy, yellow, orange, and khaki... The options are endless! Wouldn't it be fun to make a contrast with my mermaid hair? Which color should I try first?

Have a lovely Sunday, darlings!

Hi LOVEs! 
Today's look is a bit different from my regular looks, as you may have noticed! Yes, I am wearing only white and black. (Ignore a smattering of that color on my bag :p) I believe I've mentioned quite a lot that I love this two basic hue combination as much as more vivid colors. Thankfully, my cool hair (now I have a "REAL" unicorn hair!!!) doesn't make any look so boring and dull, and it's a great reason to wear more black and white looks! I have to admit that my hair colors definitely influence my outfits so much. 

It was a Saturday when I wore this look, so I didn't wanna put so much effort to dress up -- more like losing fit while still remaining stylish. Skorts seem off-trend item, but for me they are an ultimate piece, especially during this time of the year. They are effortlessly chic, versatile, plus simply can go with anything from the crop tops to sweaters to blouses.
Whenever I go for an ensemble without prints, I always make a focal point to the details, which is why I'd like to share a jewelry brand I came across recently. This lovely handmade choker is from IO Collective, specializing in semi-precious and precious gems and metals. I've been obsessed with the cocker and I've been wearing it countless time already since the day one I got!  You know wearing chokers is a huge trend right now!! I love how the choker looks very pretty by itself but can mix and match with other jewelry I already have.

Hope you like today's "colorless" look!
Happy Tuesday, cutie pies!

Hi LOVEs!!

One of the street trends that has caught my eyes these days is wearing all white ensembles with winter layers. People are inclined to wear dark colors during this season, and I am definitely one of them. It's bold and sophisticated and I don't think it never goes wrong with it however you style in. Nonetheless, it's fresh and fun to switch up your mind, playing with colors once in a while, and we also need to brighten up the darkest days of the year! Whites are definitely great color option to choose from! I adore the sleekness and crispness of the hue, and it will surely freshen up your mind once you put on because I actually felt revitalizing while wearing this look!

I've tried several times all white styles for the last few years over the summer, but never done in winter. So why not challenge myself to give it a try? It's a new year, and it's all about trying new things without fear, right? Right on time, I got this

slick white turtleneck from

ShopRoxx

, and I simply paired it with my white wardrobe. Super effortless coordinating ever! Normally I add accessories or mix with vivid color items as I go for head-to-toe all white look, but this time I kept the whole look as simple as possible. Yet I couldn't help myself tying it with a snakeskin clutch for a bit of eye candy.

Do you like all-white fashions in winter? Hope you enjoy today's winter white look!

    TGIF sweeties! ♥

Hi LOVEs!!!!
Finally Seafair Torch Parade is over! (If you read the previous article or keep updated on my Instagram/Facebook, you know that I was performing the parade as a flag performer!) Even though I really miss my team and those crazy practices on the weekends, it's time for me to get back to the blogger life!!

As much as I love colors, I still love wearing monotone colors very much! And why not wearing them during summer? The basic colors never fail to be fashionable! And this time, I wanted to mix it up with a sporty vibe! I actually wore this look for a lead flag practice, yet I wanted to create something that is totally wearable on a daily basis. Sportswear as a fashion trend has been definitely enlarging for the past few years and even evolving as the years past. I personally feel that you can effortlessly achieve the trend by just throwing on a simple key item. I love seeing people making it to a sleek, sophisticated and luxurious ensemble which is far from the actual meaning of "sporty or athletic!" I am also fascinated that it could be a sex appeal, can form a very amazing laid-back look, and can even make an elegant and chic look.

I've been in love with this baseball cap and these faux leather short pants ever since I've owned, and can't stop wearing them! These are some of the perfect pieces to upgrade a sporty-inspired look! A baseball cap is currently my summer essential, especially for a bear-face day to cover my skins from the sunshine. I can't not resist anything that is practical yet so stylish! To accentuate a sportif mix,  I paired it with these awesome lace-up booties (They are super comfy!) A stripe crop top is very playful and helped me keep it cool from the heat! I love how the silver accessories perfectly go with this look. Not too bold, yet not too boring.

How do you want to wear the sportswear trend in the remaining summer?

P.S. I was totally speechless to see a breathtaking sunset during the photoshoot! I need to go there more since I now live closer!!!!

Hi LOVEs!!!! Hope you all had an amazingly fun Halloween and a fabulous weekend!

I wore this outfit to the rag & bone event that I was invited to a month ago, and I asked my awesome photographer Justin Swain to snap these pictures at one of my favorite locations in Seattle. After all, I really love this outfit and wanted to have professional photographs taken against a metro background. To top if off, when I went to the event, I was given a bunch of random compliments on my ensemble! I was very flattered!


Since the event was a cocktail party, I didn't want to attend the party wearing just ordinary clothes. No way! I decided to dress up in a sophisticated tomboy style, which turned out to be very effective at catching people's eyes!!! If you know me well, you would know that I normally prefer to wear colors. However, I tried to keep this outfit as monotone as possible so that it retains a classy and polished look.
This really cute windowpane chiffon shirt that I recently picked up from Forever 21 is just a killer. It's one of the trendy items for fall and winter, and I was quite taken by this trend when I read the article at WhoWhatWear.com. Windowpane prints are a very simple motif, yet once you add them in your look, you can't help but create a classic and chic vibe.. What an amazing print! I was very happy to run into it!
Additionally, because the blazer and the pants are quite plain, adding this shirt adds a bit of flair to the ensemble. Add to that the crystal jewelry to frame my face and the bright rouge lipstick and I got something that looks dressy with a bit of flair!


To strengthen the tomboy vibe, I put on a trilby hat and tucked my hair into the hat, which really added the boyish charm. Then I added a pair of suspenders... all of a sudden I saw how suspenders can make the look more interesting and fun! This look could have been too formal and ordinary without them...


I am normally quite hesitant to wear wide trousers like I wore in this post. I am not very tall and my legs are on shorter side, so I can look even shorter with these types of pants. It becomes very unbalanced-looking. However, I found an amazing solution.
"Wear a pair of platform heels and let the hem down over the heels!!!"
As you see in the pictures, my heels are fully covered by the hem of the pants.  That way I look 5 inches taller (YAY), and my silhouette is much nicer.


Did you like my dressy tomboy style? I hope you do!
It's fun to dress up with mannish items! :)

Have a great day loves! <3

As you have seen from a lot of bloggers and celebrity looks, monochrome styles are definitely one of the popular trends this season. 
When I found this dress, I thought this would be a perfect eye-catchy yet unique item I should try... What a pleasant surprise to see how successfully it turned out! I certainly love this look!!!!!  Not only does it all come together really well, it really has a very elegant and sophisticated feel about it. Despite being monochrome (which sometimes runs the risk of being boring), today's look has a fun and playful aspect thanks to the dress' design and the cut out lace-up heels. 

I really adore the statement that the necklace and crystal earrings make. 
The necklace is a very versatile piece since it can go well with a casual style all the way to a dressy style like today's look. 
Chunky, big, and bold earrings are a must-have item for this summer and fall. Adding fabulous jewelry can instantly refine your outfit and make your face shine! 



Hope you like/love my monochromatic look <3
