Lace and Leather

Top: Urban Outfitters, Shorts: The Scarlet Room, Boots: Superdry  |  Shot by David Soloman

Hello, beautifuls! I'm currently vacationing in Miami because this Saturday is my birthday! Nevertheless, I still had to post a blog for you guys to enjoy! 

Let's talk about these amazing lace trimmed shorts. You don't have to twist my arm for me to love this daytime lingerie trend! I found these shorts on Instagram, which explains why they're from Singapore. What's special about them is that the lace is scalloped and much longer than most shorts alike! Remember, opting for something sheer is always sexier than baring it all. I thought I'd offset the girly lace with a pair of boyish combat boots for a playful look. Black and gold is always good for days where all-black-everythang needs a break. 

Time for birthday mimosas with the girlies. I wish you all a wonderful week!

Sporty Chic

Top: Nike, Shoes: Steve Madden, Necklace: Xevana  |  Captured by Lux

I didn't ask for a bajillion awesome Mickey heads. I didn't ask for them to match my shirt, either. Sometimes life is just good to me! It's bright and sunny in San Francisco and a perfect day to rock this classic Nike tank and cruise around the bay. The only thing better than this retro tank is when it's paired with my Xevana necklace. Isn't she gorgeous? To complement the necklace, I threw on my super sick holographic heels. I love wearing simple sandal heels with denim shorts for that effortless I-woke-up-like-this vibe.

I have a couple photo shoots today plus some last minute shopping before heading out to Miami for my birthday! Should be fun. Hopefully, I can link up with new photographers and meet some cool peoples. Miami, I'm coming for ya! I hope you all are having a fantastic week, and thanks so much for reading!

Borrowed From The Boys

Jeans: Diesel (also worn here), Boxer Briefs: Versace-inspired from some Asian store, Hat: Cheap Monday (also worn here), Watch: Michael Kors, Shoes: BCBG |  Photos by David Soloman

It's warming up in San Francisco and God knows I love a crop top! For this look, I'm borrowing from the boys and rocking boyfriend jeans, "Versace" boxer briefs and a menswear-inspired watch. It's ironic how boyfriends hate boyfriend jeans. I find it a little sexist. Not everything a woman wears must be form-fitting! These jeans make me feel like a baddie and that's why I love them! I threw on a leather hat, adding another sporty element to this look and finished with white pumps for a chic little twist. It's a casual outfit, but sexy enough for a night out if you're brave enough to nix the standard clubwear dress. Certain clothes can make you feel different ways, may it be girly, professional or badass. Give this look a shot and see how it makes you feel!

For this shoot, I linked up with David Soloman, an amazing Nigerian photographer who was here on a business trip. One fun thing about fashion blogging is that every day is different and you never know who you're going to meet. For me, it's always enriching to get a glimpse of life through someone else's perspective. Beauty is all around us but happiness comes from within. In the words of Joan Crawford, "I have always known what I wanted and that was beauty... in every form." I'll leave you guys with that. Thanks for reading, guys, and Happy Monday!

Champagne Wishes


Shirt: H&MPants: Isabel Marant for H&M (also worn here), Hat: Asos, Shoes: Steve Madden  Photos by Luxrad

I'm baaaaaack! Sorry it's been so long since I've posted. My brother was visiting from Philadelphia and it seemed like we were on a never-ending quest to soak up the sun and devour all the food in Nor Cal (Northern California). I'd say it was a success :)

Let's get back to this outfit, shall we? :) I styled this look starting with these champagne jogger pants. I always start with a statement piece and style around it so my outfit doesn't look turn out so busy. 

Grey, light blue and champagne; isn't it a pretty color palette? The denim top and champagne pants go so well together, but I added the hat for an urban flair. I'd say the hat also tones down the dressy pants, and makes this look more casual. I finished the look the with these killer holographic heels from Steve Madden, which I've been wearing with almost everything. I'm kind of extreme like that :)

I hope everyone is having a fantastic week! Thanks a bunch for reading!
