One Skirt, Two Ways


zara sweater // vintage bracelet & rings // miztique bag //  pink&pepper boots

h&m tank // simplicity cardigan //vintage polo ralph lauren bag // converse shoes
The weather was insanely warm! It was quite a while since the last time I wore this skirt which I think was in this post. I was going to wear it with the sweater and boots but then I realized it was too warm to wear sweater, and why not take advantage of the warm weather and wear something lighter? So here are two out of a few way I like to style this skirt. I like to keep it simpler on the top since the skirt is pretty much a statement piece, the yellow is so bright (not bright enough to be neon, though).
How would you style it?

Brazilian Chocolate


A friend of mine went to Brazil a while ago to watch the world cup and when she stopped by San Francisco, she gave me this two boxes of delicious chocolate. If you are going to Brazil anytime soon or if you know somebody that's going to Brazil soon, ask them to bring you back these! They are soooo good! Especially Goiabinha, I honestly have no idea what it is but all I know is love at first bite, seriously.

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.
