Blue shirt dress

 

Bello,

Long time no see!! 

I've been juggling a looooot of school projects the past few months because I am trying to graduate this summer. Anyways, I'm back with a new post. 

Dress shirts and shirt dresses are my thing now. Also anything blue.

Two weeks ago, my bff Jessie came here all the way from Beijing to go to Coachella (or Beychella?) with me. What a weekend it was! She also brought me all the new clothes I bought and had sent to her house and this dress was one of them. I am so so in love. The quality, fabric, and fit were all so perfect. I styled them with my beloved Celine sandals. I didn't put on any jewelry because I forgot at the time. Next time I will definitely throw on some gold dainty necklaces.

The checkered blazer 1.0

 

 

The good old checkered blazer revisited the market this fall. They are literally seen everywhere and every blogger out there is wearing them. I bought mine from Aland while I was in Seoul this summer.

It was the perfect throw-on piece. And I mean throw-on by literally throwing it on last minute before heading out without thinking "oh does it go with my outfit". 98% of the time, it DOESThe other 2% you can overcome by picking the right shoes. Here I wore a pair of Lacoste white sneakers (similar here).

There are soooo many different ways you can style this blazer and that's why the blog title says 1.0 because there will be 2.0, 3,0... My single favorite clothing piece this year has to be slip dress, the silky type. They immediately give you a classy and luxurious look. And by styling with a blazer you can prolong the days to wear them (I have yet to find a way to wear them in the winter). My slip dress is from Reformation and unfortunately it was their seasonal piece and I couldn't find them anymore on their site.

How to wear Bikinis this Fall

 

 

-How I came up with this blog idea:

I waited 2 weeks for a set of bikinis to arrive and when it did it was kinda too cold to go swimming. So I turn the top into a bralette. As the weather is getting colder, I was really reluctant to put my bikinis away. I thought if I keep them within my reach somehow I can delay winter a bit. 

-Bikini facts:

Both bikinis are from Zaful and out of maybe 4 Zaful bikinis I own, these two are probably the are better quality than the other two I bought last year. With extremely affordable bikinis, it has always been a hit n miss for me. And I always have a love and hate relationship with Zaful. Over the past two years I've been obsessively and constantly buying bikinis, from cheap brands to higher end brands. I began to really grasp the idea why some bikinis are priced at $100 something dollars and I started to appreciate the amazing quality of those ridiculously priced tiny tiny fabrics. 

-Outfit deets:

I found this super cute tank top from the (messy) sale section at my local Urban Outfitters. I wasn't too sure on how I wanted to style it at first but my friend insisted on me buying it. Next day I wore it to the beach with my friend and this is how I styled it. Enjoy this fun, vacay summer look ;)
