Exploring LA – Amandine Patisserie

April 17, 2014 § Leave a comment

Sometimes, it’s nice to get out of the apartment or library to get some studying done. Earlier this week, we went to this adorable cafe on Wilshire Blvd in order to study, as well as explore more of Los Angeles.

imageApart from having a gorgeous and welcoming entrance, the food is amazing. We both got a quiche; I got the mushroom one and it was absolutely delicious. imageimageAnd the variety of pastries and desserts would make anyone with a sweet tooth swoon. I can’t wait to go back so that I can try more of their stuff!

Hopefully, I’ll be trying a lot of new places around LA and get to share them with you, so keep an eye out for them!

LA Times FOB

April 15, 2014 § 2 Comments

This past weekend, we attended a speaker event at the LA Times Festival of Books to hear the incredible Rachel Zoe share a bit about her new book Living in Style and her life as a stylist. Since it was a nice day, I brought out my white lace dress for that effortless sophistication. Paired it with a light brown bag and sandals and I was good to go!imageimageIt was amazing to hear about Rachel Zoe’s fashion inspiration (which stems from the 70s) and how she juggles a busy career with being a mom to two kids. She rocked a gorgeous black jumpsuit and paired it with some killer 6 inch heels from Brain Atwood.

This outfit’s various textures and colors surprisingly worked really well. Pictured above is one of my favorite shirts. I got it in Hong Kong and the back just adds a special feature. I’m also usually a sucker for colored pants, especially during the spring and summer months. I got this pair of jegging jeans from Uniqlo and the fit is perfect. I like how it has an ankle cutting too, which makes it possible to pair with high-top shoes.

Hot Days, Cold Nights

April 12, 2014 § Leave a comment

Last week, LA got REALLY hot. But it still was a bit chilly at night. So, I wore this outfit knowing that I would be out both during the day and at night. It was cute for the day, but warm enough that I didn’t get chilly at night!


I love a unique back!


These are probably my favorite earrings at the moment-not large enough to get annoying, but big enough to get you noticed!



I’m Ready

April 10, 2014 § 5 Comments

It’s been a long, tumultuous semester. Even though it’s my last semester of my senior year, I felt like there was so much pressure coming from all sides. The pressure to figure out what I want to do, find a job, do well in school, and so on. Well finally, I’m beginning to feel like I have a handle on a few things in my life, and it feels quite liberating. I can even start focusing on the fun aspects of my future, like what apartment to move into or the evolution of this blog! The weeks till graduation are winding down and I really think I’m ready for what the future has in store!imageEarlier this week, I was so grateful for the gorgeous weather that I thought I would show it with a fun Hawaiian print skirt. So bright and fun that even one of my Professors commented on it! haha.

Outfit Details:
Top // Victoria’s Secret
Skirt // Brandy Melville
Sandals // Forever21

imageI kept my accessories simple that day with a dainty necklace with a charm in the shape of California. You can check it out as well as some other cute designs at Leola Lace.

Happy Almost Friday!!!

I’m in love with this H&M top. Funnily, I was close to packing it away for good, simply because I didn’t feel like I could find much to pair it with. It’s definitely an eye-popping top and literally looks like someone’s painting canvas. Luckily, as I was spring cleaning, I tried the top with my chiffon asymmetric skirt and it was a match made in heaven. The bold black zipper at the back of the top really goes well with the pleated skirt patternm making the two look attached rather than two separate pieces.

I think I especially like the color combination in the top. It just reminds me of a cool-tone kind of day and since I’m always a fan of purple, I can’t stop looking at it because it’s so mesmerizing!
