Hi LOVEs!!!
How was your weekend? I hope you all had a wonderful mother's day weekend and that you could share it with your beloved mom! I wasn't able to celebrate this sweet holiday with my amazing mama due to the long distance between Seattle and Japan. How sad... It sucked, and then seeing a lot of fun and smiling pictures of everyone with their mama bears definitely made me miss my mom so much more, yet those photos put a smile on my face at the same time! I used to fight a lot with her, like literally every single day, when I was a teenager. However, those memories have deepened my gratitude toward her and strengthened my love, especially now that I've lived so far away from her for almost 6 years. "Absence makes the heart grow fonder."
Although I couldn't spend time with her, my weekend was pretty crazy yet undoubtedly amazing! Did a lot of shooting, so I can't wait to share the sets with you guys soon! Don't forget to follow along for future fun moments on snapchat (@fashionsitaika) !!!!

What's your all-time favorite piece in your closet? For me, I would surely choose this pansy-printed trench coat with corset lacing details on the back! It didn't take me so long to fall in love with it due to its extraordinary attributes. The quality is unbelievably amazing, and what makes this coat so adorable is that it's a classic trench with a little bit of flare at the bottom.  I love the blue stripe print lining - a great contrast with the flower print, right? I scored this cutie a few years back durgin Black Friday at Anthropologie. Since then, I always look forward to spring just because I can wear it! It gives me a lot of happy feelings, which makes me want to twirl like in these pictures above!
I styled this look with the trench coat in mind, so I decided to wear a plain black cropped top and a vivid orange skirt that has flower lace details to go with the coat. Wearing something bright emphasizes the spring vibe in this look. Even a dazzling pink color, too. These nude platform pumps are definitely complimentary to the trench coat, and I am always so thankful to them for the magical way that they elongate my legs! I really like the little pearl accessories that I decided to put on as a finishing touch. The pearl choker necklace and the earrings aren't a pair, but they look good together and I love how they add some intrigue to the plain top. I am all about playing with lovely jewelry. I think you know that by now!

Happy Tuesday, sweethearts!

Hi LOVEs! How has your weekend been? I hope it's not as crazy as mine! <3
I spent my whole Saturday helping out with a friend's photoshoot -- and I was the stylist! This was a new opportunity for me! For a long time I have wanted to do styling, but I really didn't have a chance until yesterday. When he asked me to help, I was hesitant to take the opportunity, but I am glad I did! Even though I am confident about my styling, I was still worried about how well I could do as a stylist... In the end, I totally enjoyed working with the crew and had so much fun styling the model!! I can't wait to see the final results and share the photos with you guys! I snapped some BTS shots and posted on my Instagram, so take a look if you are interested! :)

When ZARA finally launched in Seattle about a month ago, I just HAD to go to the launch party to check them out! Oh my goodness... It was super crazy busy at the entire store! Still, I had a nice shopping time and snagged some great pieces, which I am wearing for today's outfit!
This beautiful pastel yellow with floral printed sweatshirt caught my eyes right away, as if it was calling me far from distance! It's definitely an ACNE sweatshirt inspired top that I'd been looking for and is also easy on my wallet. I get so many compliments every time I wear it! :) You can't ignore the pastel color trend right now, and I am obsessed with this beautiful light yellow color. Isn't it so pretty?? I really love how versatile this top is. There are so many ways to rock it. Not just wearing as a top or dress; you can also layer up. 

For today's look, I wore it as a dress top pairing with light blue jeans. Since I didn't want to cover the amazing floral prints, I decided not to wear anything over it and wore fur collar scarf to keep warm from the chilly spring breeze. I threw on a fedora and a pair of leather ankle boots to add a touch of coolness. The white clutch with an awesome fashion-related quote is also from ZARA and compliments the look perfectly. White is such a great color right now for transitioning dark colors to bright colors. Also, adding a white color can instantly change the whole look into a fresh and spring-appropriate ensemble. So if your outfit appears to be dull or you think it is not bright enough for a spring look, you just need to switch an item to white or add anything crisp! Then you will look 'springly' FAB!!!!

Happy Sunday lovers!
