Yay my musical smiley face top from Joyrich finally came in the mail and I’m totally in love with it! I found out yesterday that the owner is not much older than I am… makes me feel like I really gotta step up my game in life! haha. I wore this to a mini get together with some of my favorite people before I say adieu to to the good ole USA for the next three months! Ahhh I’m getting so anxious for Europe!
Back to the Start
There was a spike in temperature in LA yesterday, 81 degrees! Not horrible but enough to put on some shorts with a sweater for just-in-case. It’s been awhile since I’ve worn this beautiful knit cardigan. I love the mix of colors in it and I wish I had more items that were the colors of each of the flowers! The key to coordinating with such a colorful piece is making sure you reiterate the colors in it. In this case, I’ve got my lavender shorts, turquoise hair scarf, and orange JC Heels. If you look at each item individually, it’s interesting how your eye is drawn back to that same color back in the cardigan. O__O
All Choked Up
I really need to find myself a great belt for days when I feel a little more grunge. A trip to Hot Topic perhaps? (my favorite childhood shop! haha) But anyway, I’m loving my leopard print crop top. The fabric is really great quality and although you can’t tell in these photos, the neckline is faux leather. Sometimes it’s all in the details. Oh, and say hello to walkable black booties! HELLO!!!! =)

See You Later, Alligator
It’s been quite the week for me! Wasn’t feel too well at all, and then all work and no play this weekend! I have some catching up to do with posts! So this is an outfit I wore during the week. I’ve been looking for the perfect green blouse to match these alligator-esque pants I have. After quite the failed search, I realized I had this amazing green velveteen bodycon dress that I could double as a top if I folded it up a little for my pants to fit! haha. So alas, the perfect green top =)

Tobey Macguire came to our office today. I always get so starstruck no matter how much I tell myself not to, haha. So because of this, everyone in the office was looking their Sunday’s best, what a cool change! I think I’m just looking the same as usual though ;)
I’m wearing these great vintage printed trousers I recently go. I’ve really been searching for Miu Miu look-alike prints… I’m dying for a whole printed suit set of theirs! (but alas, I am not made of money…) So although I don’t have a blazer with the same print to go with these wonderful trousers, a simple print with a simple monotoned blouse and cute hair accessory really pulls together a great outfit. I think the key here is really bringing back that mustard yellow on top of my head =)

Lately I’ve been so obsessed with the layers and layers of textures and colors in designer’s fall collections. It’s too bad it’s so darn hot here! So this is my take on layering in hot weather, taking a sleeveless blouse with a lace crop top over it… it’s the lightest layering possible, right? Paired with these amazing ombre patterned pants plus a pop of red, I’m happy with the blend of colors and patterns.

Business in Pink
PHEW What a week! I am terribly sorry for skipping out on a whole week of outfits! But to be honest I’ve mostly been going to work in nearly PJs since it’s just been way too hectic & stressful to plan outfits! I wore this outfit yesterday. A simple business casual look with a bit of color and florals. =)

Business Print Mixing
For days when I know I’m going to be in important meetings at work I’m more conscious of what I’m wearing. So today I wore a more business outfit… but I’m not going to compromise my style! I still had fun with some print mixing! I love the latest trends of print mismatching… but I don’t think I’m daring enough to take those risks. For some reason, I never thing mismatching will work but designers make it work so well! I think a lot of it has to do with SO MUCH mismatching that it all just… matches magically? Who knows, I’ll have to experiment more in the future!

Birthday Suit for a Fancy Giraffe
I love birthdays! This morning my amazing boyfriend woke up early just to surprise me with breakfast! Then after work we had dinner at my favorite place that has the most delicious food & churros! If you’re in Los Angeles, I’d check it out—it’s called “Churros Calientes” YUMMY! Finally ended the night with a good ole horror film, Cabin in the Woods! Who has seen it? I thought it was amazing!! (but really gory >__>) Oh, and my boyfriend’s present to me was this SUUUUUUUPER cute necklace he got from Number A Boutique! I’m SO excited to wear it! If the weather permits, tomorrow I’m totally showing it off with a bright colored outfit! ;)
So I was debating wearing super bright colors for my birthday but I thought I’d keep it kinda classy and elegant with an all neutral look. Plus it was so rainy this morning when I woke up, I thought i’d dress in something warm (all my bright stuff is more for nice Spring & Summer weather)
