Packing For San Francisco

June 7, 2016
After annoying my family over years of being an over packer, I finally came to realization that light traveling is absolutely perfect. Instead of grabbing all different sorts of garments and being confused about what to wear when you get to your destination, plan the outfits for each day while you are packing.
Summer is around the corner and I’m pretty sure the last thing on your to-do list is figuring out what to pack for your vacation. Personally, the biggest challenge I face is always waiting until the night before to pack. Not to mention- stressing about not having enough outfits and time. As probably most of you guys know from my Instagram, I am going to visit my family today.
Situation: 6:30 AM, currently writing this blog while I’m waiting at the gate to board,  and praying that will be no thunderstorm or rain until my airplane takes off ON TIME.
Note to Self: REMEMBER Toothbrush and Pen this time.
I’ll be in San Francisco for seven days in total. I already have all day family plans for four days, which requires me to have at least three different outfits for each occasion. Also, packing for the three remaining days would be easier if I take less pieces and more combinations.

Now let’s take a look at how I packed for this trip Last Night 🙂 :

Packing tips tibi pants, freepeople top and alice & olivia shorts

  • Decided to take one top, which goes with more than one bottom.

prada shirt, zara denim shorts, zara leather pants

  • Same Strategy for these garments again, but I only packed the shorts since I wore the leather pants and shiny top to the airport.

zara dress and alice & olivia dress

  • Took two dresses, one long for the beach and one short for everyday use.

packing tips, burberry leather jacket

  • Never forget to grab a pair of denim pants on any vacation because it’s just very easy to style. Also, if you ever decide to visit San Francisco, never forget to take your cashmere shirt with at least one jacket. P.S. I did not pack the white denim jacket since I wore that on the airplane.

Shoe packing tips

  • Try to not take too many shoes because you end up not wearing all of them. Keep your shoes in the dust bag to protect them from any dirt.

  • I only packed one pair of heels for my sister’s graduation party.

  • One pair of flat sandals for everyday use, and one for the pool and beach.

  • Also, I wore my favorite sneakers on the Plane.

Hermes bracelets

  • Store your jewelry pieces in separate pouches.

Alexander McQueen Bag

  • Then put the pouches in your handbag to protect them from tangling and getting lost.

Packing tips 2016

  • I like to store all my under garments, swim wears, and pajamas in a big pouch.

Skin care packing, Lamer cream

Makeup packing

  • I like to either use skin care samples or buy traveling size creams when I travel.

  • And as far as makeup goes I try to just grab my everyday use and not over pack.

Packing tips

  • The best Packing Tip is to roll your clothes because it prevents them from wrinkling and saves so much space. What I usually do is roll my clothes and lay them down on the bottom of my suitcase and fill in the extra spaces with my flat sandals or shoes.

Packing tips, burberry leather jacket

  • I try to put the more delicate items on top.

 

  • Now You see I was able to fit all my seven day outfits in my carry on bag and still have the top part empty just in case if I like to bring goodies from Cali for my beau.

Oversized Blazer Game!

May 24, 2016
I still feel like because of the weather craziness, the transitional season is not over yet and we all know, this time of the season can be expensive. So, instead of crying over that you can’t spend a dime on your wardrobe because of your summer vacation expenses; revisit your beloved closet and grab a favorite piece from the past seasons, make sure it is still wearable based on the climate, and wear it differently.
There are times that I get stock between 80s and 90s trends specially when I’m homesick and missing my mom. Since I’m in my mid twenties, all I can think of is what my mom used to wear in her twenties (In 1990s). Her wardrobe was filled with all 90s goodies, different bodysuits, high waist denim pants, crop tops and a little throwback of 80s, oversized blazers with shoulder pads.

I can say this look is the offspring of these two decades, but more on a settle side (No Neon Please). There is something cool about oversized blazers; I think they make you stand out from other women in public since most of women are into more of a tailored and slim fit ones or I should say more feminine styles. Believe it or not, they make me feel sexy, and they give a bit of Parisian vibe to the outfits. I preferably try to find the ones that are larger than my size (here the blazer is 8 size bigger) :), but if I decide to buy them from the boys department, I like the ones without or minimal sleeve buttons because rolling up the sleeves is way cooler than hiding our sexy arms and wrists underneath them. The length of these type of blazers is perfect, right below the butt, which complements a pair of high waist denim pants (related post), shorts, and skirt suitably. There shouldn’t be any special occasion to wear them; in fact you can wear them all the time in most seasons.
For this look, I wore the blazer with a pair of high-waist shorts that I basically live in since I bought them, and chose the red bodysuit to give the look a bit of color and make it not too dressed up. Guys! You can never go wrong with the strapped sandals. I promise you they go with everything in your closet. They are basically my to go shoes, and I’m sure you saw them many times in my blog posts. Last but not least, I thought Gold accessories would complement this look properly. Since it says 1990 on the body suit, I wore my favorite gold choker and layered it with a double gold necklace. Also, I couldn’t resist not having an arm party, so I grabbed my gold cuff and paired it with the necklaces.

Statement Necklace & Bodysuit

May 12, 2016
Good Afternoon beautiful people! We had an amazing weekend with our family and friends. The place we went to was Amazing. It only took me three days to catch up with life and work after the mini trip. 🙂 We had a blast and probably got 10 hours of sleep in total for the 3 days we were there. Don’t forget to check out my Instagram for some pictures I’ve took when we were there. Ok, enough of the weekend! I would like to take some time and talk more about how I see fashion or why I’m doing what I’m doing. I hope you guys won’t get bored! I’ve always gotten asked why am I doing blogging and why do I care about fashion. So, here it is 🙂

Bohemian Chic

Urban Outfitters style

My motivation in fashion has always been trying to understand the psychology, philosophy, and theory of it, and I guess that would be the main reason why I’m going to fashion school. You know it’s never about putting clothes on my body because I want to look good. It has been about making a decision to present myself in a certain way to tell a story. So, in that way, fashion is really interesting and compelling for me because it’s so much more than the clothes that we used to wrapped our body. It’s a story we tell and the opinion that we try on. I don’t want anybody to feel that they can’t look nice because of what they decide to wear and what other people would think of them. One of the big reasons why I’m doing blog is that I enjoy talking about what I’m wearing, why I’m wearing it, and show my point of view in fashion. You know sometimes you just purely enjoy what you are doing everyday; so yeah, that’s how I feel right at this moment. I believe happiness is the most important thing in life. I’ve seen elderly people who never felt being happy and they whispered life never had anything to offer them. So on that note, I’m taking advantage of being in the country where I can freely express myself in a way I enjoy, and wait to see what life has stored for me.

I should say, this look is one of my absolute favorite looks of all time. My two favorite pieces in that casual state of minds are definitely High Waist Denim Shorts and black body suits. The combination of the two is always a good idea and looks like you put more effort into the look than you actually did. That’s what I call simple pairing.

Music Festival Outfit

For accessories, I kept it simple with my latest favorite Statement Necklace by Mirina Collections, which really gets to live its best when it’s placed over a simple T-shirt, plain crop top, or in this case a Plain Black Bodysuit. I also added this gorgeous Urban Outfitters Belt Bag, which complements the look perfectly. It makes it easy-going but special at the same time due to the gorgeous color and the stone detail on it. I would recommend wearing a pair of sneakers, gladiator sandals or flat ankle boots. I decided to wrap up my look with this amazing Gucci Ankle Boots, Similar, and wore this cute Hat to hide my messy hair.
