As obsessed I am with LBDs, so I am with LWDs. The “Little White Dress,” or as I’d like to call the LWD, has been taking over my closet. From slip-ons to maxis, my LWD collection is growing, and fast. It’s just so easy and breezy in the springtime and especially with summer coming up, you can easily transition into the warmer season. A silky skater dress will set you apart from the crowd, along with a statement piece like an elaborate necklace. Such glam!

Here's a quick post featuring one of my favorite pieces as of late: The Adore You Jumpsuit from Lovers + Friends!

Lovers + Friends is a contemporary women's label based in Los Angeles that carries some of the prettiest pieces I have ever seen. The simplicity of the piece makes it so chic, and the flattering cut-outs makes it very feminine. Look out world, I'm ready to seize the weekend!

Line 'em up

So let me tell you about this skirt.

This piece has my favorite styles in one because for 1) it has black and white stripes 2) it’s a maxi and 3) the double high slits! It’s chic but edgy and sexy without overdoing it. If were talking about optical illusion, it’s genius how the double high slits cut the horizontal stripes of the skirt. I added my low-cut wired top to add more lines to the illusion. My new chunky platform booties were necessary because I needed more height for the length of the skirt, while my choker lightens up the look a bit.

Golden Hour

My favorite time of the day is when the natural lighting is perfect, and there’s probably no other time more perfect than the so-called “golden hour.” It flawlessly captured the aesthetic of my outfit. The white and blush tones look beautiful against the sunlight! The lace detail of my top paired with this bohème skirt is no doubt the appropriate look for spring, festivals and the like.

Stripe It Down

Stripes: probably the only pattern out there that I don't mind wearing countless times. It’s simple, yet versatile. Keepin' it edgy and cool with black accessories and silver jewelry, then gave it a boho feel with my fringe backpack. This tee is so soft and comfy that it makes me not want to take it off!

Maxed Out

Tis the season to bust out all the maxis in your closet! This number came in right on time: monochromatic palette, floral pattern, low cut, bare back, high slits with shorts in-seamed?! Sounds like the perfect maxi to me! What makes it more amazing than it already is: it flatters my petite body. It’s a struggle to find the right maxi for petite girls like me. Some fit extremely awkward with no body form whatsoever, but not this one! That’s probably why I’m so obsessed with it. You can even get away wearing it at night because of the dark color way.

Season Staples

This blog post is dedicated to share to you my favorite staples as of late:

  • MAC’s Sin
  • Choker from Urban Outfitters
  • Halter Shirt Dress from Forever 21

If you knew me well enough, I am the queen of dark lippies (or I'd like to call myself). I cannot get enough. I recently discovered this deep burgundy matte lippie from MAC called “Sin” and it has been overused since I purchased it. What I love about matte lippies is that it stays on longer than your ordinary satin lippie. I have a bunch of dark red lippies but this one has the ultimate vampy feel to it, which I absolutely love. I have also been really into chokers lately but I’m especially drawn to this one because it's metal and has a long pendant necklace attached to it, which I think stands out from the other chokers out there. Last but not least, shirt-dresses are a hot trend this spring and for a good reason: it’s laid-back and dressy all in one.

I’ll be back after a crazy weekend at Coachella!

Festival Diaries: Ethereal Beings

We are exactly one week away from Coachella and my excitement just keeps on growing! The desert is hot and humid so I tried staying with the lightest color palette as possible for my outfits. And as much as I love black, it’s just not gonna pass! Ha-ha. This outfit is inspired by wanting to feel light and airy, just like a fairy frolicking about the grounds of Coachella.

Season in bloom

Today marks the first day of spring, my favorite season of all! The weather is warmer and the flowers are blooming, which only means a little more femininity in my wardrobe. By the way, I never had allergies in my life until this year, which I think is very odd. But that doesn't make me love this season any less. Happy Spring!

On The Grid

I don’t like math but I do adore grid-like patterns. This Checked Monochrome Playsuit from AX Paris is a fresh alternative from the solid blacks and whites in your closet, and an addition to a perfect monochromatic wardrobe. The black and white grid makes a statement that’s pleasing to the eye, with a color contrast that’s crisp and chic. You can add bright colors for a more vibrant look, however, a opted for a little gold on my heel for a muted touch.

Broderie Anglaise

Off The Shoulder Playsuit from AX Paris / Madden Girl Westmont Bootie from Zooshoo

White lace will be evident in everyone's spring wardrobe. It's feminine, flirty and refreshing - just in time for the warmer days to come. This white lace-y daydream reminds me of an opulent guipure - beautifully embroidered with a vintage pattern on top and floral design on the bottom. I love how it's transparent on the arm area, which makes it look more flirty and fresh. I wanted the lace details to really stand out so I kept the accessories to a minimal.

Urban Gypsy

Spring Awakening Romper from Tobi / Braided Choker from Sweet1985 / Thigh High Boots from Lamoda

Today I’m channeling the inner gypsy in me. Spring is upon us, which means we will see more boho trends. I’m really drawn to the bohemian style because of its carefree nature, and that’s the feeling I get in this romper. The dark purple hue stands out from the usual earthy colors, and the bell sleeves and lace detail accentuates the style. I can’t get away from low fronts because I love how it shows some skin. This choker is my favorite at the moment because it’s beautifully hand-crafted and Eco-friendly, which makes it so unique compared to other jewelry.
