The blouse dress

 

I wore this outfit to go shopping and got a lot of compliments on this dress. When I first saw this dress on Style Addict, I kinda named it the "good girl, bad girl" dress lol. We don't see many dresses with collars that have a deep cut in the front. And the buttons, we definitely don't see them too much on dress either. One of the girls who commented on my dress thought it was a blouse at first. 

Annnd of course, I can't say enough about my Gucci Princetown. They are the most versatile, most classic shoes I've ever, and probably will ever own. As a horse lover myself, the gold horse bit has always been my favorite element of Gucci.

How I style polka dots in the summer

 

This summer I just started wearing polka dots. I've always been avoiding them because I thought they were "childish" and too "girly", which now I still think so. BUT, if you style them right they can come out fun and sexy. 

An outfit I wore to SF earlier this summer - simple polka dot dress. I threw on a stipe shirt to keep me warm in the windy weather. Stripes surprisingly didn't clash with the polka dots but added more dynamics to the whole outfit.

2. Urban Outfitters poplin dress

3. Urban Outfitters front-tie cut-out romper (so cute)

4. Relisation The Alexandra - navy star (always wanted this one)

 

While I was in Beijing, I wore this outfit to hang out with my cousin at 798 art district. Wearing something like this in China definitely got a lot of staring, of course. But I grew used to it this time I visited. My cousin took these pictures for me and I gotta say that she's got skills for capturing candid moments. 

I styled a polka dot tie-front shirt with a simple over-sized white shorts. And I went all French girl style with a pair of H&M braided sling-backs. I have SO SO much love for these shoes. They are super adorable, affordable and comfortable. They also come in black. They immediately give you a vacay look and go well with all kinds of dresses and bottoms.

Boutique store shopping in San Francisco

 

I gave myself a break during the week to go hangout with my bff Jessie. She took me to so many amazing places and one of them being the mission street. I ran into a store called Reformation, which I've been wanting to visit for the longest time. I didn't even realize that I was in their store until I saw the tags on their clothes. I tried on a silk top that I had in my online shopping cart and oh. my. god. their fitting room was next level. You can adjust the lighting from cool to warm to sexy. And they even have a phone charging station in there XD

I've been eyeing on this silk top and I was very hesitant on which size to go for. I tried on a XS and I thought they could fit better. I wasn't so sure about it and if I'm paying $80 for a top I at least want it to fit super nicely :/

(I have this weird feeling that I might go back for this b/c it's so friking cute!)

Reformation's interior design from furniture choices to color theme of each rack - everything is so on point! Absolutely one of my best experiences at a clothing store. 

My outfit deets for the day:

ZARA top (similar)

Vintage jeans from my bff

Alexander Wang Amelia sandals

H&M shoulder bag 

Ray ban shades

 

Floral elements are so in this summer and I definitely recommend to try and have some fun with them. They can bring so much energy to your outfit as long as you don't go all out and wear flowers from head to toe. Single floral pieces work a great summer outfit when you style them with simple monotone bottoms/tops. I styled this off-shoulder asymmetrical top with a grey pair of jeans and kept everything relatively simple. I accessorized with gold earrings and black suede purse. There was nothing too catchy but the floral top in this outfit.

My bff also took me to this vintage shop called After Life. It was LITERALLY heaven on earth. I literally moved around within 4 ft. and my hands were full. No joke. Their denim collection was crazy and even crazier they have my size! Usually most of the vintage boutiques were only left with larger sizes. These jeans were remade so uniquely. I love and wanted to get all of them.

But most importantly...

LOOK WHAT I FOUND

Yes I found a vintage GUCCI freaking sweatshirt 

I love it so much that I even wore to my night out at a bar (it was cold and windy af in SF at night). I'm still in awe that I was able to find this. By the way, the red sandals I was wearing in the picture down below was also from a thrift store I visited later that day. It was $7 and I seriously thought that they looked like Celine. So. Very. Worth. It. 

 

Silk and Knits

 

      I love styling pieces that are similar in color and playing with different fabric texture. I styled a silk front-tie top with a high-waisted knit shorts and created this effortless pool-side summer look. A glass of Champagne and a little bit more sun rays are highly requested here. 

 

Honestly, I'm obsessed with anything that is silk or silk-like. And I'll dedicate a whole blog to them soon.
