I hope you’ve had a great week so far. Last week was a special week for me. My best friend came out here to visit us from Los Angeles for the first time. I must say it was one of those magical weekends that I will never forget. Some people are just meant to be in your life. No matter how long it has been since you haven’t seen them, you always pick up where you have left off. The best part is that I will see her again in a week back home, San Francisco, for thanksgiving. Continue Reading…
Happy Wednesday Everyone!
It has been a while since last time we talked. Unfortunately, about 3 months ago, Matt got into an accident that caused 35 percent burnt on his body and seven surgeries in 40 days. Our home was room 824 at the burn center for a while, 48 days to be exact, so with that non-chosen lifestyle, writing a blog was impossible especially when my photographer was lying in bed. Thankfully those days are over and we are doing great. I found a new part-time job that I like a lot, and the hours work perfectly with my blog and school schedule. I must say life has been great since we are out of the hospital and super thankful for all those little things we used to take for granted.
Okay enough of him and I, Let’s talk about what we always love to talk about.
The first week of October is the hardest time of the season. We have to go through our wardrobe every day for hours to find the right outfit to wear. The sad part is that we are in the fall spirit, but our clothes are still too heavy to wear. Also, we like to minimize wearing very bright colors since it’s not Spring/ Summer anymore. I would say having some neutral colors in your wardrobe would go a long way with you. Go to your closet, separate the neutral colors from the bright ones, and start making different outfits with the basics you have on the neutral side.
They include different shades of brown, Black, White, and gray. Neutral colors can blend in with other colors or match with all colors and color combinations. Therefore,you will find it easier to create several different outfits with them without extra thinking. If you are on a tight budget, I would suggest investing most of the money towards collecting good neutral garments. They tend to last longer in your closet and with current trends.
I have always admired fall. It really is a second spring with all the colorful leaves falling on the ground. They both are the revolutionary season; spring is a new beginning and autumn is a new start or last chance to be reformed. If you looking for a great fall vacation destination, I would recommend going to Colorado in October. It’s just magically beautiful. All you see is mountains full with different color trees. Well, now you know where I got my inspiration from for this look. I have become a big fan of this russet orange/ mustard orange color since last fall. It reminds me of maple leaves in fall. Mustard Orange is a very rich color with a strong foundation, so I prefer to stay with the neutral family and mix it with nude shoes and bag.
I like showing my midriff when I’m wearing high-waist pants or skirts, so if you are like me try to invest in some good quality neutral crop tops. I promise it will be one of those pieces that you always have something to wear with.
I have worn this A.L.C crop top all year around with all sort of pants and skirts. The same story with these pants, you name any kind of tops and I paired it with. Therefore, I wrapped up the look by layering some of my gold accessories.
I hope you enjoyed this look.

Seven young unknown designers proved to us magic still happens in the Dior world even after Simon left last October. I am totally speechless after watching this show! Full-skirted dresses were shrugged off the shoulder which represented romance and modern aesthetic. Silk skirts tasseled passed the knee gave them seductive movement. The chiffon and tulle look evoked the ecstatic feeling of the 1920s.
