Hope you are having a great week so far!  Please excuse my mega delay! I caught a flu during Coachella and have been sick (still sick) for the last two weeks.  🙁

Spring just arrived not too long ago, and we are already transitioning into Summer.  Since the weather in LA doesn’t fluctuate much, instead of investing in a whole new wardrobe for Spring/Fall, I usually throw on a jacket to reuse my summer outfits.

I adore the cold-shoulder design of this romper.  The cutout makes the romper a versatile piece to layer with during colder seasons (e.g. Layering it on top of a turtleneck). I can’t wait to share more pairing ideas with you! You can find more Rompers and Jumpsuits here too!

I was first introduced to fashion blogging when a friend showed me a video by Wendy’s Lookbook.  Seeing Wendy grow over years has inspired me to take a leap of faith and start this fashion blog.

When I was shooting this blog, I ran into her and mystery man.  Talking to them about blogging was absolutely surreal to me, and it reassured me that my dream is never too big.

Capsule Wardrobe: 6 Different Ways to wear a wrap dress

Hi there! Hope your week is going well so far.

You look best when you feel comfortable in the clothes you wear; and so I always strive to purchase clothes that are made with soft fabrics.  This Moonrise Multi-Way Midi Dress (50% off if you are a new customer!) not only hugs my body perfectly, but it also feels irresistibly soft!  With a feminine silhouette, this dress made me feel incredibly sexy and confident.

Between the two color options, I chose grey instead of navy because the lighter color is suitable for both day and night events, allowing me to wear the dress to more occasions such as date nights, girls night out, bridal showers and weddings.  

The wrapping design lets me create different looks with the same dress, and I am sharing the first 6 looks today! Hope you find them helpful and inspiring. 

Hope you enjoy the post! I will be posting more wrapping ideas next week.  Please let me know which look you like best and if you’d like to see a video tutorial!

Restyling Ideas: Three Ways to Pair White Pencil Skirts

Happy Sunday!

Celebrating the beginning of spring with pastel colors and a white pencil skirt today.  As an advocate for sustainable fashion, I always try to think of more ways to pair the clothes I’ve already have, and here are three easy options that I think everyone can do:

Idea One – White on White

Pairing a white skirt with another white top can give you a cohesive look! It will look like a white dress rather than a separate top and skirt! While white color works with any other colors, I would avoid pairing a clean-white with an off-white item.  I suggest you to stick with the same shade of white color!

Idea Two – Color Blocking

White skirts are truly versatile.  They work with every color. You can dress them up or down.  And they don’t remind you of work clothes (think black pencil skirt).  So in this second idea, you can pair with a dressy button-up, a casual sweat, or a denim shirt as seen here.

Idea Three – Pattern with a Balance

I love floral, but I would NEVER pair floral with another patterned item.  If you love floral like me, always pair with a solid-color counterpart, such as this white skirt! 🙂

You can find these below posts here and here

Lastly, I want to talk about some cleaning tips for your white skirts.

1) Material: Stick with synthetic materials such as polyester/faux leather.

I would avoid buying a cotton white skirt.  Cotton really loves dirt, and it’s super difficult to clean.  While you can always bleach it, bleaching is harsh to your clothes, and should be considered as the last option.  Another reason I don’t buy cotton white skirts because hot water makes them shrink.

2)  Wash with other white clothes in hot water with a clear detergent.

The worst is to find your darker clothes bled during the wash cycle and your beloved white skirt got dyed.  To avoid tragedies from happening, only wash with other white items.  And yes you should also use a clear detergent to be super cautious!

3) Sit like a classy lady

For your white skirt’s sake, I guess you can’t be a tomboy and sit on the floor or grass….

Hope you enjoy today’s post and please comment below with your thoughts!
