New Friend


If you follow me on instagram, you'll know I got a new friend.
Last friday I went to IKEA with my friend to get a few things. I've wanted to have a cactus (or cactaceae) for a while now. Why? First, they're cute. Second, they don't die easily. Third, low maintenance. Perfect for college student! Am I going to get more on my next trip to IKEA? I don't know yet, we'll see.

Button It Up


vintage hand-me-down shirt // zara jeans // forever 21 heels // h&m necklace


I adored this pair of pumps and this one is easier to walk in than the other one because the platform is not too high and I can "feel" the ground. I love the height it gives and how it balances out the loose button up shirt (which I LOVE).
The only thing is, the color. Lately I've been wishing that it was black or maybe some neutral color. It's made from suede material so I'm not sure if I want to take the time to dye them or just leave them as they are? What do you think?

Light Layering





Layer up, no matter hot/cold it is outside right now, just layer up — a tip every San Franciscan gave me. There's no scorching hot weather here, sometimes t-shirt and jeans are enough, but when it gets windy they're not enough. Most of the time I would think to pair everything I wear with my trustee leather jacket, but hey, my leather jacket needed a break and often it gets too hot wearing that. So I opted for an oversized flannel instead, which I find to be perfect, it's not too thick or thin, and if the weather get a little warmer, I can just tie it around my waist.

Top Knot


I was reading a post on Le Fashion the other day and I was so inspired with her "19 Ways To Wear A Halp-Up Top Knot". I'm not a big fan of doing a half up and I thought this is a great way to do it! Not too polished, easy to do, and perfect for the windy situation (everyday in San Francisco). 
What do you think? Yay or nay?

One Thing Leads To Another

ZARA jeans & sweater
Happy Friday! Are you excited for the weekend?
Do you remember when I told you I was looking for the perfect jeans? You see, finding a pair of jeans that is not too long or look wired is a challenge for a 5'2" girl. After going to a stores, I went in to a  ZARA store, I've never thought I would find a pair of jeans that would fit me there, but I was wrong. Ta-da! Search is over!
I found this pair of jeans amongst plies of other jeans. And of course, I wouldn't just try the jeans on without looking around first. While I was looking around I found this sweater and I just had to try it on. I walked to the fitting room with at least 5 pair of jeans to try and this sweater. I was surprised when I tried this pair of jeans on and it fit nicely. It's actually a cropped style, but it's a full length for me, haha. I fell in love with the sweater as soon as I tried it on. It fits loosely on me and the material is perfect for the weather here.
