Hi LOVEs! Happy Sunday!

Ever since

suede skirts

have been a big trend, I'd been dying to get my hands on one too. Unfortunately luck wasn't on my side, and I was about to give up on the hunt... Then I was reached out to by this Israel brand called

CASTRO

, and they gave me the luck I was waiting for!!! On top of that, I was really impressed by their passionate for fashion, their goals, and who they are -

Castro

is the Israeli answer to global fashion. It incorporates the love and passion for fashion, quality and design. Those aspects together with the Tel Aviv and Israeli character whose source is in their nature as people and as a fashion house: energetic, colorful, urban free, happy, and sexy, with a pinch of chutzpah. 

I am so happy to style a fall-ready look with their lovely pieces and share the look with you guys! I adore their urban, sophisticated, and fun style! Of course I had to pick up this suede mini skirt and decided to make a casual ensemble along with it. I selected an

off-white top with a deep open-back design

and a pair of

leather oxford shoes

! I added  vintage chain printed scarf gifted by my grandma as a transitioning element to the look, and I can't get over how the chicness of the entire outfit is elevated! I've been owning this scarf, and I finally figured it out how to rock it! I topped it off with some cute accessories including their

multiple-colored bag

and

double sided pearl earrings

! This bag is so on point, I love the mix of burgundy color and chain straps!!  

This is probably one of my favorite looks that I have done recently! What do you think guys?

Hope your weekend has been treating you nice!

Hi LOVEs!!! Happy FriYAY!

It has been a crazy week and thank god it's almost the weekend! I actually really don't get to enjoy the weekend because I have to work, but still I embrace the feeling of them. After a week of wearing crazy high heels, curling my hair, and putting a little more effort into how I look, I enjoy the chance to kick back a bit on the weekend. Well, well... Who wouldn't? So when I fee like a break from the rigors of fashion, I got for a comfy and casual look. But that doesn't mean I don't want to stay stylish! I wore this outfit a month ago, and it is one of my casual outfits for those day when "I wanna take a break."

I got this amazingly killer gray long knit cardi from

Now I Style

, a Japanese brand, last year when I was an official blogger on their site. Since then, this has been my BFF! It's super comfy and cozy and keeps my whole body really warm because it seriously keeps out the cold. Even though I am so short, I am totally not hesitant to wear floor-length outerwear! Because who said that short people can't rock a floor-length item? Putting on a hat is also something I can't live without when I opt for a casual look. I chose this

gray beanie from

Forever 21

to go together with the cardigan, and a pair of fake glasses nicely add that playful touch. I decided to style it up with a total all white ensemble underneath the cardigan. Although it's winter, I like wearing a t-shirt for a loose fit, kind of like the feel of pajamas. And this

LeMotto

 tee

is totally loving and inspiring! I've been obsessed with these

TOPSHOP ripped skinny jeans

ever since I added them to my closet. I DIYed the ripped parts and added more of them around my thigh to make them look much cooler, and I am glad I did it! It gives me that excitement like "mine are better than yours!" I finished it off with silver oxford shoes to add a little bit of chicness. With the contrast of white and gray, I must say this look is one of the best casual looks I have put together!  

Have a great weekend dolls!

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!!

Hi LOVEs!
I hope your week went well! :) Hooray for the weekend!
As you may have noticed already, in this photoshoot I am wearing NO HEELS!!!  It's super unusual for me because I hate being short. On top of that, without heels, my legs don't benefit from the elongating effect, and appear shorter! :( However, as a fashion/style blogger, I'd always had a feeling that I really wanted to step out of my comfort zone and share some 'no-heel-looks' because I know there are so many people out there who also may be self-conscious about their short legs but have the desire to wear flats sometimes.
So when CAT FOOTWEAR reached out to me for a collaboration, I immediately picked up these oxford shoelys that you should definitely own in your closet. I really like that they are vintage-inspired looking and at the same time, they have a tom-boy vibe. More importantly, they are amazingly comfortable!
To be honest with you, I was having a very hard time deciding on an outfit that looks good with these, while  remaining stylish and not making me feel inferior about wearing flats. After several styling changes, I finally was able to find the perfect outfit which became today's look.

Whenever I wear low heels or flats, I always try to put on a hat to draw your gaze upward, or do a bun style to add some extra height. Also I styled a pair of simple skinny jeans and printed shirt so that I could move the viewer's gaze up away from my lower half. It is also key to wear matching hues to elongate your body. Initially, I didn't want to add a belt because it would divide my torso and legs. Still, I wanted to play with some bright colors so I chose the neon yellow belt to go with the vivid orange bag.

Generally, any look with flats is considered to be an easy and comfy outfit. Well to me, definitely yes! I don't think I would ever want to wear them to non-casual occasions. However, I really like how this look turned out to be not-too-casual ensemble by accessorizing with the gold jewelry and curled hair style!


Hope you like how I styled the oxford shoes! I'd like to know how you wear them so feel free to comment below to share your thoughts! :) If you like those pairs, you can get them from HERE, too!

Hopefully, you'll have awesome plans for the weekend! ♥
