Countryside Stroll














"I long for the countryside. That's where I get my calm and tranquillity - from being able to come and find a spot of green."
Emilia Clarke

What I'm wearing: Flying Tomato dress, Michael Michael Kors cardigan, Franco Sarto shoes and Betsey Johnson hat

Hello from the beautiful California countryside. From luscious greens to hilly winding paths to snowy mountains, I am so blessed to live where I can be both in an urban area and escape to country within just a few minutes. Travelling to this part was scary and unbelievably tranquil at the same time. The zig-zag drive was indeed scary but the scenery behind was calming - to see some horses in the field, country houses, red barns, brown and white fences. Sometimes I just want to disappear in the countryside just like a few of my favorite books growing up - Little Women, Huckleberry Finn and Anne Of Green Gables. It was super bright that day so I can't go outside without my floppy hat so I made that the general idea and matched everything starting from the hat. I wore my breezy orange dress for that cool country air and black cardigan for a bit of sun protection.

Parisian Chic: Sunglass Organizer | DIY Video




I certainly welcomed spring with a few updates in our studio. Summer is gonna be here soon and with the abundance of sunglasses, I had to organize them in a way that is pleasing to the eyes. Our studio/office has been divided into two, that is my side and my hubby's side. We

I am all for visual and our walls are like blank canvasses waiting to be beautified. Making them was easy and with countless ideas in the internet and most of what I saw made them with either wires, cords, strings and such. I decided to add a little whimsy by using flowering garland. That is my guilty pleasure, flowers here and there. I wanted it to be different so adding the flowering garland was the way to go for that vintage vibe and feminine flair. For me, they make everything soft and dreamy and definitely brightens up a room and give anyone a smile and a cheer. 






Materials needed:

1. Wooden frame - preferably thick to accommodate sunglasses with ease.
2. Spray paint of choice
3. Flowering garland
4. Measuring tools such as ruler or tape measure and a pencil
5. Securing tools - I used hammer and nails for better stability

Red Black Spring | OOTD











What I'm wearing: Chaps top, Choies skirt, Shoemint heels and GUESS necklace

“A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous.” 
― Coco Chanel

It was an awesome experience to have won a free trial from Choies. Every fashion blogger I know has worn their beautiful full skirts to chic tops and street style accessories. So it was an honor to wear their famous skirt – and a full skirt I must say. It came neatly packaged with the Choies plastic zip top and the product has the official Choies sewed brand and tag which I absolutely love because that means you are getting an authentic product from their company. The skirt itself was amazing, not only was it folded properly but judging from the fabric, lining and the sewing, I can tell firsthand that it was top notch quality. The style of my skirt has a layer effect of organza on top of a red and black irregular bubble pattern. It is perfect for that retro ball or swing party to attend to. Even if I am small, the skirt just reach down just above my ankles and the upper part can rest comfortably slightly above my waistline for an empire waist effect. The nice thing is I can always wear it lower than that for a nice gown style. I also love the sash in the skirt that can be worn as a ribbon or a side tie.

I wanted the skirt to show its full beauty so I just paired it with my simple lacey black top and bejeweled heels. I finished it off with gold paved link necklace for a little sparkle. Can I just say I'm obsessed with midi to full skirts right now. Probably for the whole spring and summer, I will be posting fun skirts in my OOTDs. Kudos to hubby for these awesome pictures!




XOXO
